    [poll question=’What colour do you paint your windows?’ answers=’Black, Blue, Other’]

    I favour the black with 4 stage highlights.

    Depends what size figures I’m working with and what theme I am working to. 6mm I tend towards plain black, although I have been known to use a few stripes of white across them. 15mm I mostly go black undercoat then mix blue into the black and highlight a couple of times, although some of my sci-fi vehicles have high-tech green windows instead.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Sometimes, for very small scales, I’ll simply paint it black. But usually, I paint blue, and then add some lines and dots with white to represent glare.

    If I want the glass to appear tinted, I’ll use other base colors as well.
