I love the green checks , though the loincloths and the weapons need a bit more I think.
The dropkick pose looks hilariously overbalanced. Due to the direction of the loincloth and the scarf it looks like it could be travelling in either direction.
I was thinking the same thing about the cloth after looking at it in the pic. I still haven't found a good way to do metal. The dropkick guy is so irritating! I had to buy a lead weight because he just kept tipping over. Painting him was very frustrating!
You could try to gently bend him into a more balanced pose, since he's only supported by the cloth it would be pretty easy but it might crack the paint where you bend.
I find that washes work quite well with metal. Otherwise, I treat it just like any other colour, with a shade, midtone and highlight. For example, silvery metal I might do: Chainmail basecoat, then wash with watered down asurmen blue, bring back the midtone with chainmail and highlight with mithril silver.
There are some good tutorials on metal and other stuff under the completed tutorials section on the main forum page.
Hope that helps, post pics when they're done.
Thank you for your compliments and suggestions! I did end up bending the leaning guy and he's a bit more stable. I'm pretty happy with the color scheme, I'm just trying to find others that look as good but are different... It's pretty hard. I decided to forgo the silver metal on these guys in preference of more of a power weapon kind of wet blending, maybe with some more funky clown colors.
