    Thanks Christos and Paulo for your kind words.The helmet was finished with a mix of acrlylics from Games workshop&Vallejo. First Gunmetal was applied and while still wet small amounts of Gunmetal blue was dropped in.The gold parts were started with Tin bitz and then Shining & Burnished gold.I then done some shading with various shades of brown and black oil paints, final highlights with gold printers ink.Hope this is of some help Paulo.
