Step 1.
Firstly I basecoated piece. I used spray Montana(for writers – graffiti spray) 2g colors. It gives facture. It doesn’t matter what you use for basecoat. I just tested my new spray.

Step 2.
I painted piece with base color – 2:1 mix of Astronomican Grey and Tallarn Flesh (no. 1)

Step 3.
From this step is needed old brush(see photo) to get final effect. I was painting form up to down(it’s important) in this and next steps. I used paints in order:(Remember to water down paint):
Brown ink : thraka green 2:1(no. 2), brown ink : thraka green 1:1(no. 3), thraka green(no. 4), thraka green not watered down(no. 5), baal red(no. 6), baal red not watered down(no. 7), ogryn flesh(no. 8), gryphonne sepia(no. 9), brown ink heavily watered down(no. 10).

Step 5.
I put layer of camo green leaving more pigment on down (no. 12). Direction of lines is important!

Step 6.

Again I used washes/inks like in step number 3, but heavier watered down. Now watered down I shaded armor with Devlan Mud (no.13, then with Badab Black (no. 14). Direction of lines is important!
