OK, I have seen the battle damage on other colors of armor...
Most of what I have seen is a jagged pattern in the direction of the damage painted in black, and then a smaller replica of the same pattern in boltgun metal, leaving a slightly visible line of the black around the metal to simulate the undercoat that has not yet been removed by the damage..
How do I go about replicating this on Black Armor? I had actually considered using a dark metallic color followed by a brighter metallic one. The other option is to use a gray, then follow up with metal..
Any suggestions on this?
I would go with the second bit. If you think about it, the armor when it's made isn't black
I read a GW article that said one of the heavy metal painters paints a black spot then a spot of chainmail inside it. He did it on top of blue or something though. I tried it and it looked nothing like the pictures. I would like to see a good explanation with a pic or two by someone who has done it before.
One way to do it would be to do the scratch in silver, then use a mid or light tone grey to highlight the lower edge. It would do the usual thing of suggesting the scratch took some of the paint off with it.
