Two Thin Coats update: the metallics

My progress with painting has been slower than once it was, however I have at least managed to play with the metallic paints that come in the Two Thin Coats set. My initial verdict is that I like them:

The bronze is a rich colour while the darker metallics go well on armour. What you see above is the bronze and the darker metallics with a base coat and a wash of either sepia for the bronze and balck for the armour.

I haven’t yet used the lightest metal tone, but hopefully it will bring out some highlights in models like this one.

The next update should have some metallics finished and colours laid down!

    Nice! I hadn’t ordered the metallics, as I’ve been really happy with my Vallejo metals. I do like the look of that bronze. Would love to see the silvery metallic without a wash too.

      I will be interested to see how well they do about getting this range to retail. I always found it hard to take a recommendation where once I bought a pot I couldn’t be sure of getting another.
