So I'm again trying to do "NMM" (Non-Metallic Metal) to simulate shiny metal surfaces using only regular paint. My initial attempt, the Emperor Haghendorf's gold livery, went quite well. This time I'm trying to create the effect on the steel plate armour of my Black Legionnaire. It looks a little sloppy right now, I admit I'm letting my blending smoothness slip a little while I concentrate on getting the overall look right.

Close-up shots:


  1. Allison, your legionnaire is looking good. Also, that Emporor Haghendorf, other than the horrible name, is remarkabley well done. I saw him before, here or on coolminiornot, but didn't quite appreciate how beautiful he is. He will be hard to top : )

  2. Thanks, Liz! Yeah, Haghendorf is a horrible name but it's a European mini, they do things differently there (e.g. the Royale With Cheese). And he will be hard to top, I spent a ridiculous amount of time on him... But I'm hoping this guy will benefit from the experience.
