    So I've seen plenty paint recipes for the lid but what about the armor are there any good ones?
    Im extremely hesitant as I live in a place where I cant go to a store that has a good selection of paint as they do in other locations (read as no roads in or out of town), to purchase random paints that look close. (standard screen calibration problem)
    so I hope you guys might have some thoughts.
    there's a local game shop here in town (magic, warhammer) and they have a decent selection of color but they are all the 1/2oz Bottles

    I should not the store that has the mini bottles im still making a guestamate cause im looking at the paint thru the plastic bottle, and don't know if I can trust the printed color swatch on the shelf

    This may help you as well. I kinda followed stormtrooperguy's color but varied them slightly. I used all Rustoleum spray cans for painting my entire ROTJ Boba Fett Here is where I listed the paints in my build thread:

    And here is what I used for my jetpack:
