Base coat of chaos black, go over the armor with a good coat of Ultramarines blue. Which ever company color on the shoulders you want or just gold. Go over the metal with boltgun metal and blood red or chaos black over the guns. Highlight the armor with a simple dry brush of lighter blue, just adding a little skull white to the Ultramarines blue works just fine. Transfers on the shoulder pads, brown on any ammo pouches or pistol holsters etc. Red on the eyes, doing that after the Ultramarines blue and before the highlights works well cause if you get sloppy you can just touch it up then add the highlights and hide it even more. The eyes can be a pain.

Thats how I do it off the top of my head.

I find that Red Gore is much better for the red than Blood Red, it has a much nicer, more rich colour. It's quite thin though, so it is best to undercoat anything you plan to paint it in with Scorched Brown
