TUTORIAL: Painting Ork Scrap Metal

I recently announced I was going to be releasing more tutorials: well here’s my method for painting Ork Scrap Metal (Looted metal).  This method is fast, easy and leaves a nice effect to your models. I hope this helps anybody out there!

I will be using an Ork Deffcopta as an example because the model contains a lot of metal areas and will be the most suitable for this tutorial.

Step 1:
Prime the model in Black:

Step 2:
Drybrush in Boltgun Metal

Step 3:
Apply a 1:1 mix of Tin Bitz and Shining Gold to any other areas of your choice.

Step 4:
Add a darker shade to the models by painting Tin Bitz onto areas of your choice.
This step didn''t come out as good on the camera

As you can see this method is great for painting a fast but effective metal, I know this will help me paint the 3 Deffcoptas, 6 Killa Kans and 1 Deff Dread in my army.

Thanks for reading; I hope you find this as useful as I do!



  1. v. useful indeed - i find that orks all too often come out monotone with just plain metal but this has shown me how to make them more interesting.


  2. thanks man, I'm just getting ready to start painting my orks, and this is definitely going to prove useful! Thanks!
