Tact offered a suggestion and I think it has merit, what do you guys think of this? It still follows the app I did on the collar piece like on the second design I had. I'm honestly not sure what I prefer more, but I do find this to be more, uhm, logical when it comes to alignment with the collar piece.
V-pattern is superior.  The "bordering" approach will look off once you shape the plate to conform to your back.

Hey guys!

Sorry for the silence, been busy as usual. Here is an update on my backplate. Let me know what you guys think but I personally think I messed up on the brownwash.

Also, the reason why there is so a high concentration of weathering on the shoulders, is I remembered from my swordsmanship (Katana) training, when we rolled on cement to avoid a sword, we would scrap our shoulders quite a lot, so I figured that idea that would be appropriate on the backplate :)

the weathering on the back plate is pretty good, your right in thinking you need more wash , though saying that, the scrapes in the green layer alone look a little manufactured, possibly writing of some sort, sorry :(.

Paint apps look great! Scratches and weathering look real nice, I like how you did layering, and scratches, I do agree that it will need a couple layers on brown wash to give it a worn/used look but so far it's coming a lot very well.

Hey quite alright! I'm far from expecting on getting this nice and professional looking on my first try! This is why I want the opinion of you guys :)
Any specific points on the backplate you want to point out that I should watch out in the future? I think I see what you mean though.

I think for now I'll keep it as is, and next time I see you in person I'll bug you a bit on helping me make the wash better looking? Thoughts? I'm kinda afraid of putting too much and messing it up!

Mainly where scratches over lap  mainly, low grit sand paper or pick at it with scaple will sort it out

Wash wise liik at where there could be a build up of dirt, around arms base etc, the places that can't be easily wiped down on a battle field when still wearing it

Nice work vod ;)

the important thing with Weathering is that the whole Kit Matches the level of weathering ;)  so if you leave it as is (and i see no prob with that) then as long as the level of Weathering on is the same over the rest of your kit your good ;)

Working on my shoulders and knee pieces but ran out of grey paint. I'll be getting some tomorrow and I'll work on those during the weekend. However, I found these in a military surplus store, which I think I'll use for my kit! :)

Great find!  Those will go great with your kit.
