    Here is a shot of what I have done so far...
    Shoulders still need another coat or two, and the whole thing needs misting and speckles after the decals get here!

    Okay, now I know that I have done something if I got the Seeker surprised face. Thanks for all the comments guys. I will keep everyone posted! Eventually I will make myself do the knees!

    Here I have tried to experiment with the black speckling. I did it with a small house painting brush and some flat black MM Acryl. It still seems to be missing something. Maybe a little airbrushed rust or dark brown?

    I would say a few washes. Hit it with some washes with Newbrunswick green

    Re: FP Armor... painting techniques for the clandestine hunter

    Okay, I have been kicking myself in the butt cause I got on a roll and did a lot of weathering and sealing BEFORE I applied the decal! It may just come down to me having to redo the right breast plate. I also trimmed the knees and put them together. I will have to fill and sand them before paint.

    Looks great. No way in the world I would touch the right chest piece, just put the decal on and weather it and redull it. Are you going to dirty it up?

    It has about 4 black washes on it. You can't really tell it though. THanks for the comments. There are also some black specs per AOSW (actually probably a few to many but not bad).

    Okay. What I did was take 3 pics without the flash and 3 with the flash. You cannot see the weathering very well in the pictures. In person, you can see subtle weathering especially if you move the armor around in the light.

    Re: FP Armor... painting techniques for the clandestine hunter

    Here is an updated picture of my shoulder bells. What I did was airbrush on some pumpkin orange around the edges and appropriate places then I misted another layer of reefer yellow to blend it. They still need some washes to darken them up, and scratches etc.

    Re: FP Armor... painting techniques for the clandestine hunter

    Well I couldn't take it anymore so I took the right breast plate back down to primer. I have it re-chromed and masked and will paint it tonight maybe. I also got my decals in from bobmaker and put the skull on the shoulder. I also dremeled out the shoulder buttons and JB Welded in some nuts (lol I said nuts ).

    Re: FP Armor... painting techniques for the clandestine hunter

    Thanks Spidey. I have completed a little more work on the shoulders and the knees. I used a mix of UP Armor Yellow and Catwisker Yellow on the left knee trim. The right knee is a blend of Pumkin Orange and Reefer Yellow with a misting of Reefer Yellow over it.

    looking great man!!

    but why did you go with the AOSW rotj and pre-pro knee armor?

    are you aiming at fully AOSW??

    the MoM pics show 2 ROTJ knee armor pieces... with a pre-pro cod

    Re: FP Armor... painting techniques for the clandestine hunter

    That is a good question. I guess I got to looking at just one set of pictures and neglected to consider other photos. The more I think about it, the more I want to redo that knee LOL. Oh and the mix for the left knee trim is yellow zinc chromate and catwhisker yellow.
