I started painting the armor gold, but there was too much “yellow”. I switched to a cool gray, and that balanced much better with the cloak. There are so many fiddly bits, and it’s a Bones figure, so the detail is a bit obscured. I had to look at photos of the metal version to discern what some things were. The eyes are so small and under the hood. I really couldn’t do more than fill them in black. I bet some better painter could manage it, but I tried, and failed..
