They look pretty unpromising in the bare metal, but respond well to some washed on block colours followed by another wash of Gryphonne Sepia and a little lining-in with a dark brown.
I think the trick with them is that they are quite uncluttered with detail. Where there is some, it is sculpted in quite sharp relief which helps the washes get to where they need to go. The areas that are smooth are very smooth which with a good matt white undercoat also helps the painting along.
