Well, I play necrons so I've gotten used to painting with metallic paints.
1. I usually use about 3 layers of the metallic paint (Especially stuff like burnished gold that dosent cover well).
2. For guns, I like a purple wash on chainmail (but I have never actually used that), for blades however, boltgun metal with a red wash. It looks bloody and should fit orks rather well.
3. Vehicles are fun to paint with metallics. For areas you don't want to paint red near the bottom of the vehicle, boltgun and purple wash, then a light overcoat of a brown so it looks like it was covered in mud. Higher up you can use mythril and then put boltgun over that.
4. For gold, I use 3-5 layers of burnished gold with chaos black to contrast it.
