NMM = non metallic metal (or, non metal metallic, I've heard it both ways). It means painting metal objects without using metallic paints. Mostly blues and greys for steel, and yellows and Browns for gold/brass/bronze.

 

The barbarian is fantastic. It was definitely time well spent.

Thanks guys!

 

I keep hearing about this...'NMM'. What is NMM?

Ah, I'm sorry, I should have written it out. Thanks to seej for explaining it!

Wow.  That sword is a joy to behold!  The gradients make me think it really IS some highly-polished metal blade surface at first glance.  The random scratches/scuffs are a great touch to break up what would otherwise be a fairly simple geometry.  The bronze guard and pommel have a nice, warm gradient that conveys a sense of being "brushed" metal.  And of course the details elsewhere on the figure are top-notch as well.  I also appreciate how the base gives a sense of location without being so "busy" as to distract from the figure.
