I was about to start putting some paint on the armour plates on the three miniatures of my side project. I messed up badly. First I decided to go with blue plates but that looked really bad. I went on doing some more washing on the second model, only to have it seriously messed up. On the third model I tried a strong orange on the plates and it looked pretty nice but I still wasn’t happy with the result. Beyond repair the models ended up taking a bath in my supersonic washer, stripping them clean from all paint.
I still think the colour I used as a foundation was nice and I am thinking of using it again. Maybe going with white armour plates?
