Black undercoat, drybrush with boltgun metal, do an inkwash with watered down fleshwash ink, drybrush with boltgun metal again, then highlight with boltgun metal and then with chainmail. Last pick out the fine detail like rivets and sharp endlines of armor with a thin line or dot of mithril silver.

Hope this helps. Sorry for the late reply.

Gave the wood a mat varnish coating to make it less shiny and more woodlike in reflection.
