Painting dirty black power armour ???

Ultimately, it depends upon what kind of "dirt" you want them to have been through? Typically, it would be done with pigment powders/washes, mud splatter (e.g. Vallejo Splash Mud, or thinned paint), washes, and/or a little chipping. Generally, lighter colours are selected for black armour to give contrast, but I've seen darker colours used to give a subtle effect.

 

Some possibly useful videos: Artis Opus' Vindicator dozer blade, Ichiban's terrain pigment wash, and ScaleModelMedic's muddying up a historical vehicle.

 

Don't know if that helps or not..?

i simply do a flat black, then pick out edges with silver chips then i use a heavily watered down vallejo orange brown to wash into the recess' i use the this to create the contrast between the plates rather than highlighting the black at all.

This is a great idea!

It also looks good.

Thank you for sharing.

Yeah I also tend to use both pigments and oils to age my black armor.  Normally I just dry apply some pigments  and then selectively oil wash over them, and I normally choose a fairly contrasting pigment so that the color of the oil wash interacts like grime over rust or mud.
