Nice work, guys. These models look great!

What did you guys do for your grey metal bits there? They look dull, like they were forged by a blacksmith instead having been machined. I like them. Slim, your boys especially. :)

I got one model out of four done, seen here:

It's actually really easy, at least how I do it. Black base, to Boltgun Metal/Leadbelcher, to a dry brush of Chainmail/Ironbreaker. I then give it a wash of Badab Black/Nuln Oil, then when that dries I use Devlan Mud/Agrax Earthshade.

And that's it! You can leave it alone as-is, or go over the edges with Chainmail to make them pop out. Sometimes I'll do some light drybrushing with a brown and dull orange to give it a really rusted look before edging with silver (if I even edge at all), but it's not strictly necessary. If you happen to have any of the old GW inks, you can get a really nice greasy, oily look to the metallic bits, especially if you give thin lines where water would probably dribble down.

Similar to Slims technique, but I just primer black, paint boltgun metal, black wash, dullcote. No drybrushing afterwards.
