Has anyone here painted the support units?

Can you just paint over the wash?
Do you have to base coat them or can you just paint on the plastic?

I'm painting over the wash and have not run into any problems yet. I will be doing a clear coat over it all once I'm done.

I would usually strongly recommend doing a primer first. Because the color will not hold well directly on the plastic with multiple plays on the pointy spots or edges.

But since this means you would also have to do the stencils and logos, I guess we don't have another option.
