    Another alternative is you could get a metallic medium and mix it with any paint to get a metallic equivalent. I know that Vallejo Model Color makes a metal medium. I am sure you would be able to find some at an art supply store as well.

    Cheers,

    Id go with the chainmail/green mix. How about painting chainmail (or maybe boltgun metal) and then using a few coats of green ink over the top. That would give more of a green tinted silver.
