Default White Shoulder Pads

Here's one for all you white armour people. White pads.

Step 1
After a black undercoat, paint a thin coat of Astronomican grey.

Step 2
Making sure the paint is fairly thin, go over that with a 1:1 mix of Astronomican:Skull White

Step 3
Make a wash of Adeptus Battlegrey and paint that into the cracks.

Step 4
Highlight over the edges of the wash, blending them in with Skull White and make a thin line around the edge of the shoulderpad on one corner (and adjoining sides)

Step 5
Paint a crosshatch pattern (or just vertical lines) from that line towards the middle of the shoulderpad to show light reflecting off it.

Step 5
Give all that a coat of 'Ardcoat to protect it and make it look polished.

It's a good, clean way of painting, and will be good when I'm painting my terminators.
