My first attempt for painting the hilt was to use a base coat of yellow, then dry brush various shades of gold metallic paint. But that didn't work at all.
Metallic paint doesn't give good coverage, so it ended up a splotchy mess.
I redid the base coat with gold spray paint. It looks pretty good and hopefully I'll be able to add shadows and highlights using acrylic paint over it.

Years ago I published the "plans" I created for my Hyperion Gunblade. After a few server moves, the links to these files "broke". Now I have the files available again.
Sorry it took so long, please let me know if you have any trouble with the pdfs.

Here you can see how the pieces of the belt are going to come together. The image on the left is taken from the in-game model, the right are the pieces I'm building.
I think this is the first picture I've posted showing some of the fabric pieces of this costume.
