In the grim darkness of the future there is only khaki.
As part of the process of my development of a prototype squad for Project Big Kahuna, this has involved undercoating the models black (my standard procedure), and now I have to apply Kommando Khaki paint as a basecoat for all the armour, shoulder pads, knee pads, etc.
What I can say is, unlike the joyous simplicity of painting Codex Grey onto my Cadian 512th models, Kommando Khaki is a real b!tch to paint!
I have known for a while and from my experience that the colours red, white, and yellow are in particular, very difficult to paint well onto models. I just never expected that Kommando Khaki would fall into this bracket.
3 thinnish coats on and I still get a semi-dappled 'marbled' effect. No doubt, like with my efforts in painting flesh tones, I will have to patiently apply coat upon coat of Kommando Khaki onto my models to build up the layers and eventually achieve the finish I want.
What has once been a pleasure, is now a downright chore, due to my unfortunate choice of colour scheme, which I will say is a legacy effect of the old Imperial Guard 3rd Ed. release codex. Those who have been reading and following my blog regarding Big Kahuna will understand.
Ah well. Must persevere for the sake of the Project!

Anyone else have any similiar difficulties with other types of colours/paints?
