Finely Divided Aluminum Powder:
Once again I am defying conventional wisdom and going my own way. I've seen many Belisarius Cawls on line and all with painted gun metal appurtenances and they seem to lack the depth I am seeking.
Below are my Tech Priest and Bel.. Cawl in their base painted stage using Vallejo Model Air Base Grey #71
.097 and a red of my own concoction of Model Air Signal Red #71
.070 and Game Color Royal Purple #16
which I mixed myself a drop at a time but somewhere around a ten to one ration.
Only later I discovered I had Mephiston Red in my inventory. Gah!
Note if you will the diminutive size of this $41 dollar model and marvel at how little your money is actually worth.
Back to the model; I applied finely divided aluminum powder to the highly ornamented staff with surprisingly satisfactory results and shall be using this where'er I can on these models
