I've never done it, but it may be something like this -

Start with a basecoat of chaos black.
Add a drybrush of codex gray
Add a light drybrush of fortress grey
Add a light coat of black ink.

Maybe that'll do...tell me how it works.

That's how I've done it for a piece of ruin terrain I been working on. Also if you want it to look as if its a rubble covered floor you can have a brown base coat and dry brush with gray then black ink then gray drybrush again

Thats' pretty much how I base my marines.

I flock before priming. I touch up any areas that need it with a watered down chaos black. Then I drybrush Codex Grey and then a lighter drybrush of Fortress Grey. I paint the rim of the base Graveyard Earth. You could also add a final highlight of skull white or a mix of skull white and fortress grey if you like.

that seems like the best way to do it.

also, this may be off topic but how do you take screen shots like the one above this post. ???
