    Pretty good, but I'd like to see a blackwashing with some silver drybrushing done on this guy. That adds for some awesome weathering.

    I say this needs some Autobot faction symbols :) 

    I like the gold detailing :)

    Hmm...I don't know about an actual tutorial, but here's what I do to blackwash (this might not be the REAL method, but it works for me).

    Things you need:
    Black paint (I use acrylic)
    Pledge Future Finish polish (it's an epic win in a bottle)
    A small bowl/paint cup
    A brush (large enough to cover most of the area you're working on)

    What you do:
    Take a few drops of black paint and put them in the cup. Then take your Future Finish and add about as much of that as you did paint. Using your brush, stir it up like you're making chocolate milk. The brush is going to retail a LOT of this mixture. Press the brush down on the top of the area to be washed.

    The fluid from the brush will instantly run down the figure and start to fill areas in with black. Next, take your brush and lightly sweep across all areas of the part being washed. Wait a few seconds and then *gently* wipe off the surface of the figure with a lint-free cloth (I use Bounty paper towels - they don't leave any fuzzies for me). Repeat this process until the part looks dirty/greasy to your liking.

    ====

    Dry-brushing (Autocon609's ghetto quick-guide to).
    Things you need:
    Silver paint (I use acrylic)
    Brushes (I use a 4 Flat for small areas and an 8 flat for larger)

    What you do: Once you've stirred your silver, dip the brush into the paint. Rub either side of the brush against lid, forcing a majority of the paint back into its container. Then take your brush and lightly 'paint' a paper towel with each side of the brush. Now your brush has minimal paint on it. Run the brush along edges of the figure/vehicle to highlight the said edges in silver. This adds a nice worn look. For even more scuffy goodness, gently paint the broad surfaces of your figure using short, quick brush strokes.

    This may or may not be the official methods of black washing and dry brushing, but it works for me.

    Since you used enamels, you can take some paint thinner to it. If you're careful, you can rub off just enough excess to have a nice black wash as is :)

    No worries - paint can come come off, so it's all good. Though yeah, everything I listed is acrylic based. I know it chips easier, but its easier to work with if you ask me. If I had an airbrush I'd use enamels.
