I'm working on an Eldar army with custom colors and wanted to get input from some of the esteemed aesthetes on this board for ideas to paint the rifles.
I have the Guardians primed with black with Snot Green for the armor, and Iyandun Darksun + Sunburst Yellow for the pads, helmet and highlights. Examples are pictured below. I have been putting a lot of thought into the color of the rifles. I have Dark Eldar with black splinter (TM) rifles with Boltgun Metal highlights, but I find this boring.
Any ideas or input you have would be greatly appreciated. Also, I'm new at this so if you have any other suggestions to paint these up proper I would be receptive and thankful.

For the gun you might wanna go black with grey highlights or go chainmail with a blue wash.

Gold. Shining, burnished, exc exc. thin, faint Mythril hilights over the gold.

Maybe also consider getting a good dark wash over the rest of the model, to make the guns really stand out.

I think a bleached bone look could work well.
