    Not sure what kind of look you were going for. Pretty much you are limited only by your imagination. Usually the 2 routes I have seen are either painting it so it appears metallic (either NMM or metalic paints) or paint it up to where it looks like a glowing power weapon.

    If you were to paint it up with metallics I would suggest maybe a very watered down ink wash to give the metal a distint appearance. You just want a hint of color and don't want it to be dominant. Water down your inks quite a bit. You could go with blue, purple, or green for a colder look or yellow, orange, even red for a warmer look to the metal. Maybe even mixing in a touch of gold to the metal base would add a distinct and regal look to the weapon.

    As for power weapons this is how I paint them:

    I paint the blade in grey scale with darker greys in the central area and lighter greys/whites as they reach for the edges of the blades. Next I take and paint on a lightnight effect in white to the tip of the blade and then give it a coat of a Tamiya clear color. Here are a few examples:







    Cheers,
