Imperial Navy base colour (vallejo)

Post by Thomas The Human » June 18th, 2017, 1:29 pm

Which vallejo air colour should I use as a base "light grey" for star destroyers and other Imperial ships?

I would paint it white, with eventually a light wash of grey.

yeah, the Star Destroyers are more straight white than grey in person, but on screen do tend to come off as light grey.

I actually haven't painted one yet, but would probably start with a black base, then add serveral thin mist coats of white building it up
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.
