Looks good! My only complaint, if you could call it that, is the metal is a bit bright.

Yeah I've seen alot of nooby painters with the same problem. All the paints i have are somewhat bright for metal. So I've got to learn how to do non metalic metals. However I've only recently run out of miniatures :( I'm probably going to go halvsies on a fantasy battleforce.

Any reccomendation on best way to learn non metalics? or even how to dull down my metal paints?

My suggestion for dulling them down is washing them, believe it or not.. as for non metallics.. hmmm not sure.

wash metals to matte them down and non metallic metals are just a process of layering that takes like..... 7-10ish layers to look smooth
