    I'm starting a Space Marine chapter and I'm going to make it one that was forgotten about sometime around 5000 years before the eye of terror campaign and I'm making it's armour very metallic colours. I'm considering using a lot of Tin Bitz, Mithril Silver and a regal blue (to look faded). If you have any other suggestions please post them.

    Well my advice is to pick a simple, bold colour scheme that looks good on a battlefield and isn't too complicated. I wouldn't recommend using gold as it's one of the most difficult colours to get right...

    If you can find a colour that you can spray onto your minis it would be even better... I wish I had done that... Painting each and every mini the same colour (Codex Grey and Blue shoulder plates) can be tiresome...

    I like the idea of black and gold would look quite good.
