...although the dull, grey metal has been painted working up from a medium base to the lightest highlight on the top of edges as I would normally do (shading to be added) I painted the sand coloured armour in a different manner. Each of the separate panels has been highlighted working towards the centre and leaving the edges in the medium base shade. Each layer of the very diluted paint has been applied by brushing vertically in very thin stripes and so that the underlying colour shows through creating the appearance of (hopefully) a grimy, worn surface with paint wearing off the leading edges.
