How to paint these boyz?

I´m really unexperienced at painting goblinoids but somehow have managed to get myself a beginning of an orc army.
What´s a quick way to paint orcs to table top quality?

Wash em, spray em black, Base coat flesh & clothing, high light same, paint details (shields, weapons, belts and buckles), high-light same, wash with a 50-50 water & brown ink (to give the appearance of grot) paint eyes & fangs - finished with a varnish of your choice. (bold text optional)

No. No, No .... you don't want to doit like that .... you want to paint them a nice misty buff. :D

I would spray the black dry brush tin bits ... then chain mail .... for nice rusty armour and weapons. No way to do this tidy .... so do it first ... then paint skin green ... wash with a dark green for shade and then highlight with a light green .... jobs a good-un.
These are the fastest paint job ever.... Might even do some myself they are so damn quick. :D

This sounds good too. I´ll propably test both this and Paul´s way and then pick the one that suits me best.

I always like Goblin Green (or mid green) washed with dark green and highlighted with yellow-green.

As always, my vote is on Harry. He's the speed painting king of EVERYTHING. Handsome fella too, they say...

That being said, I'd wash the whole model with Devlan Mud after a base coat. I'd also finish the bases after drybrushing the metals, before painting anything else. It makes the model look "finished" sooner and might save you a level of faffing about.
