there in Flash, Gradients are those things where one color go's slowly to another color, they should be in your color swatch list, and if not you can create your own by going up on to the color mixer and changing "solid" into linear or radial. Blur is a filter that is only in Flash 8 or Flash CS3, to use create symbol of what you want blured, and click on the filters tab and click the + symbol and choose blur, edit it however you want. if you don't have Flash 8 or higher, go to shape, soften fill edges

Don't over do it though, Gradients lag your Flash if you use tons of them.

in my opinon though the 2 shader thing is easier but also it might not look better... but do you think they would really see the diffrence from far away?

No, they wouldn't. It also depends on how long the object is going to be on screen. If it's only going to appear for about 3 seconds, then don't bother spending hours on detail.
Although, if it's like you're main character, and you're going to use the same sprite continually, then you'd better apply some detail.

If the army is going to be relatively still, then you can just turn it into a bitmap image, (screenshot, then save it as a image, and import it flash) and use that.
But if they are going to be moving, I guess you could try export the movieclip as a .gif... Other than that, I wouldn't know how.

Do not listen to this post! Gradients are horrible, and only look nice when used correctly, the shading you have going on at the moment is working just fine.

what about blurs though... should i still use thoes?

if its a metalic surface, a blur shouldn't be used. The only point where I could possible see a blur is perhaps if you want to make a shine on the surface, yet do not want to make it a straight edged line... but even then...no blurring really.

Hmm... I don't know, I'm having trouble understanding what the image actually represents, I think it's supposed to be some crazy suit of armor. It is certainly detailed and pretty clean looking but I can't really pick out the form...
