    There actually are several layers of sepia to try and create a brown for the main body of the guns.
    With either a bronze or gold to highlights some metal bits like the muzzle.

    But the brown stayed extremely light, no matter how many layers I did, and the camera on my phone doesn't seem to pick it up nicely.
    In general, my phone camera isn't great for miniature pictures and regularly highlights the worst in the models, which is mildly annoying :p

    Basecoat of corax white
    Layers of Seraphim sephia for the brown.
    Balthasar gold for the gold

    There's your issue.

    Gold works best with a warm brown basecoat.

    If corax is what you have to use for the rest of your scheme that's still work-able but you can't use seraphim as a brown replacement.

    yeah, mostly it was just an experiment with the seraphim sephia. Which didn't work out entirely as I wanted too.
    It looks better in real life though, on the picture you can barely see the difference between the gold & brown bits. In real life it's a bit easier to see.

    As for the base. Needed that for the red to work properly

    Some kataphron destroyers that are quite dirty after presumably destroying some stuff.
