I've got some necrons painted and I really like the shine mithril silver gives to the models. Do you guys know if testors dull coat will ruin that shine effect?
I don't really know the answer to this, but I think I've got a way around it. Try painting a spare bit or piece of a sprue with mithril, then use your dullcote. This way you get to actually see the result instead of relying on someone else's information. That's how I'd do it anyway...good luck!
It will kill the shine - however my personal opinion is that it will make it look better. The natural shine of the paint usually muddies up the way the figure looks.

Alternately, you could hit the entire model with a gloss coat, then use a paint on matt varnish (available at any art store, or michaels) on the parts you want to be matt.
