Very nice, the sword is exquisite. Only critisicm that I can even see is that in the photo the red looks a tiny bit thick, but it might just be the photo. It's a great look overall on the Champ

Love it! Especially the cloth ends.

My only criticism is the censer-light doesn't look like it contains the flame inside, but it IS the flame.

what I did with the letters on the sword was do the gold NMM first being sure to have my brightest highlights near where the light from above would catch the edges of the engraved letters(look at some engraved letters closely and you'll see what I mean). Then, after the NMM was finished, i carefully picked out the letters with black ink.

If you want a black blade with gold lettering, you might try painting the blade gold first, and making sure you get the gold into those recesses. Then layer black on, taking care not to get the black in the recesses where you want the gold to shine through. Thin paints are the key there, since you're using at least three layers-- the undercoat, the gold, and then the black itself again. From there, it's just a question of how much highlighting you want to do.
