    ESB Gauntlet Color

    I've searched high and low for the color of the ESB gauntlets, but can't find it. Is it the same color as the armor? What colors did you guys paint yours with? Thanks.

    I used Panzer olive green for all the armor components on my ESB armor and weathered to match what I interpreted from the available reference.
