If your talking about the one in the wych squad they used a light grey like Astronomican grey, if your talking about the ones on the Reavers it looks like they used chainmail, with mithril silver layered on. A light brush of gloss coat would help with the shine as well.

You can also paint them as you would paint a Soulstone , then apply gloss varnish.

Wow! Those are some tasty paintjobs you got there ESE! Those visors are excellent.

I also must commend you on your fleshwork. At the risk of being accused of thread hijack, could you give me a brief rundown on your method?

I'll post something on my project log this weekend. (I'm going to try painting tonight with my sprained thumb)It really isn't that complicated now that I have streamlined the process.

Back on topic: I use the gem painting technique listed above for the visors. It really looks great and isn't that hard to do.
