Hi!
What is the best way to paint Pred. 1 armor to small scale figure?
I looked the Predator dvd bonuses and It looks like Predator´s armor is more of a weathered grey than metal color?
Perhaps grey color with some metal color mixed together?

-All tips and clues are welcome-

Sounds like you've got the right idea. Make sure and do a nice wash of black to get into the detail spots once you have the armor colors down.

Thanks for the tips!
I decided to paint the armor with full metal paints ( looks better on small scale). I used Games Workshop´s Boltgun metal-color, after that I gave it a couple of layes thinned down chaos black paint. I would have used GW´s inks wich gives a glossy surface but I didn´t have them so ,I´ll have to use varnish ( semi matt / clear ? ) to give the armor some shine.

I have not introduced myself to this forum so when the predator is complete, I´ll introduce myself to all + i´ll post some pics of the finished model.
