Varian Update - Shalamayne and Armor Prime

I have begun painting Shalamayne. I rigged my mini-paintbooth with a base so the blade can stand up. The photo is after two coats of silver spray paint.

The shoulders are primed, need to sand them smooth and start painting. I think I will go with a blue spray paint base and a dark yellow spray trim. Once the base coasts are on, I'll put in details with light blue and lighter yellow and gold for the highlights.

The breastplate is also primed and ready for sanding. I know I want to go with a dark blue base coat, then various levels of silver on the highlights, but I'm not sure if it will be spray paint or acrylics. I plan to use the same techniques for the gold trim on the armor as I use on the shoulder.
