    Which Laquer spray for Necron/Metal?

    So I'm finishing my Necron army and needed some advice. I've used the Testors Dullcote to seal my models. And I know it advises not to use on 'metallics' but I had washed my guys so they weren't much for metal except for the highlighting. I don't want a glossy look (except on the red flayer parts, I'll hand gloss those later). The pic I've inserted gives you an idea of a finished model. It shows up more apparently on the destroyers as they have larger flat areas.

    The question is:
    Should I stick with Dullcote, is there a middle ground that isn't GLOSS, or go with glossy (glossy is not really what I'm looking for though).

    Thoughts?

    There are such things as semi-gloss or silk-matt which are supposed to be a middle ground. Ask the peaple in the shop, they should know.

    Another alternative is to use dullcoat but touch up the parts you want to be shiny with either gloss or metallic. In fact I've read somewhere that it's best to paint the metallics after the dullcoat since the dullcoat counters the natural shine of metallic paints.

    Just a thought. I always use dullcoat because I hate the shine.

    Great points. I was thinking about painting some highlights over the dullcote then using gloss on some and Matte on another. Semi gloss to me seems like it might go too far.

    Thanks for the insight though.

    Semi-gloss won't be going too far if gloss ends up being ok...

    I recommend the semi-gloss.

    Are suggesting Semi-gloss for the 'red glowing' parts or the main torso? I was thinking Matte for main torso instead of the dullcote, but then torn on semi or normal gloss for the glowing areas.
