    Hello Nap!

    Yes, I used metalics from vallejo metal color series.
    Normal black surface primer, after high gloss black, and apply the base color: 77712 steel, 1st light with
    77724 silver and 2nd
    77707 Chrome. Shadows and deeper damages
    77720 Gunmaetal. The brush more or less wet. After smoke wash(50%
    70939-50%water) i just call magic wash, because good for the steels and the leather belts... and black wash, I learned from this video:

    Plus 1! This figure would be just as acceptable if released today as it was 20+ years ago. Excellent subject and start.
