Testors Metalizer on Games Workshop Grey Knights Space Marines
I gave Testors ‘stainless steel’ metalizer enamel paint a try this past week. Overall I’m very happy with the results. You can see a ‘metalized’ squad of grey nights next to some space marines painted with Createx Wicked airbrush paints. Obviously these are all just basecoated, so I have yet to see how acrylics will layer on top of the metallic, how the finish will look if/when I seal with Acrylic varnish, and how durable the metalizer colors will be in practice.
The metalizer sprays were a dream to shoot in my Iwata Hi-Line brush.
On thing that I learned was to be conservative with how much to ‘buff’ the metalized paints. I was a bit too aggressive and buffed out some of the metallic shine on the shoulder pads on some of these guys.
I’m so enamored with these enamels and metalizers in general that I ordered some ‘Alclad II’ chrome paint. I will, as usual, post the results once I have given the Alclad paints a whirl.
