    Wow nice work bruv... the weathering on the armour looks really good! I'd be tempted to mist over the chest and shoulder decals with some grimy grey/black... or you can sponge it on and dab it off with a dry cloth, leaves a nice finish also...it's just a little TOO clean.
    You can then add extra depth to the decal weathering by using a tooth pick to scratch through to the white...

    This is what I meant about the sponge method bruv... be very light with the technique (less is more)
