They also did this MANY times over... Remember, the AoSW UK gauntlets are different from the MoM pics the Soapmaker posted above:

Hi. What spray paint color are you using for the tip of the left gauntlet missle? Is it like brass or something? And also, what color silver are you using for the calc pad? Up close the real one looks dirty, how did you guys reproduce this effect?
The rocket tip looks like a tarnished bronze or brass, as for the calc pad, I have used grey primer,misted with black and silver.
To me, the rocket tip looks copper.
The rocket tip is brass colored but has been heavily misted with black! I'll post pics later.
For a good pic of the calc go here: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/bbt/gauntlet_details.htm
I cast these pieces and cast the color into the resin itself. It gives a great final product, and weathering is a snap.
That does look great DarthJared.
I painted my Bradley rocket tip with Testors Brass paint.
