Any suggestions about the bionics/backpack would help ^_^
I found that most metallics look better if you apply an undercoat of "Tin Bitz" first. That is assuming you are using GW colors.

It might be a bit late for this model but you can experiment with it.

Afterwards just paint or drybrush the other metal colors on.

For all those little rivets I suggest using a thick brush (size 2) first and painting them chaos black first and then - using a finer brush (size 000 or a GW detail brush, if you are using those) - do a small dot in Mithril Silver. That way they really stand out from the rest of the miniature.

I found the Tin Bitz makes it "richer" or adds more depth to the color. But it also makes it look more "worn".

You can also try and use different golds. There are shinier ones and less shiny ones in most palettes ( haven;t work too much with vallejo, so I don't know what they are called). In the GW range you can use a "shining gold" first and then apply a highlight of "burnished gold" for example.

The rivets really need to stand out (I think) so you shopuld go for the brightest sylver/metal color you have. and definitely go for the black ciurcle around it first (with a bigger brush, like I mentioned) to make them stand out.

I personally prefer the minis to be darker, so I would go for Boltgun metal as the bulk color.
