Sorry for the delay folks! Lots of DVD burning and a million other things.
I am not sure what it is about this color of armor, but it is very fun!
It might have to do with the kind of variety of shades that I can put in the all important midtones. You have heard me mention those a lot here. I mention them in the videos just as often!
This area is where miniatures are "won and lost". While highlights and shadows are very important, they don't exist without that all important middle. This is where you can put in all those subtle color shifts and so on. It sets up those lights and darks.
So, always remember the middle!!!!!
