    Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR

    here's what i have got painted on the armor so far...the cod and butt are also painted the green, but havent misted them yet, will post those later...really difficult to keep the black in one area with a rattlecan, wish i had an airbrush, but this will do i think...give me your input guys!! now, this is just the black, i have to get some lighter color in those areas to really grime them up...any hints on what that color might be would be appreciated, for rattlecan...

    Hey D, looking good now we have some colour going on!
    If you are referring to the armour's highlights? what I used was some small mists with the panzer olive and accent that with some earth tones (brown) then I would have applied the black/grey.
    It's always hard with a rattle can... Altho saying that, there are some great suits on here that have used those?

    so you wouldve gone with the lighter color first? then the black? i see...i think i can still make it work...in your pics it looks greyish to me...maybe just the flash... but once i get those lighter color accents on, and the silver and yellow for the damage, it'll be good....i hope...:o

    Yeah the flash can change certain colours.. around the dents and some edges I used a grimy grey colour.
    For the final weathering after additional tones etc.. I used the black.

    Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR

    oh ya, brother, totally am...so it is a greyish color then...inside the the black areas...awesome, and ya know, if you look at my pics, it looks gray as well in some spots, and no gray has been used....totally flash effect...look at the lower corner of the left chest piece (when put on), it has a gray color to it...

    Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR

    Ok... (this is harder over the tinternet) add the additional green that I used to lighten and highlight certain areas according to ref.
    Then add the grime, earth and grey tones over that to blend those previous areas...

    thanks guys!! this is fun...i like painting the armor...not as, what would you say, time consuming as the lid!! if you can survive the lid, everything else seems easy...

    Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR

    Good to hear all the happy customers - I've just ordered a set from Daz, he's going to paint it up for me too as my skills are not quite up to the task. Looks like he's very much in demand, and with good reason, by the sound of it.
