Default Venerable Dread Paint Colors

I have just started painting my venerable dread for my dark angels army, and came to where I needed to paint the metallic areas on the model. I was wondering if anybody knew a good color or colors to paint the metallics that goes good with dark angels green. Thanks a lot

Well the complimentary colour of green is red, but as there aren't really any red metals I'd say mithril silver would be your best bet. Or just have the metal bits as bleached bone over scorched brown, seeing as the Dark Angels use a lot of bone-coloured stuff in their whole sombre chaptery colour-thing.

Well, I do Dark Angels.
And a good tip would be to use shining gold with a layer of flesh wash on top.
I use that on my DA marines shoulderpads.
