Stuff is arriving in dribs and drabs which annoys me since I paid the more expensive delivery options on stuff but things were delayed at dispatch - thanks again, Wayland Games.
One thing to note, and something that is my mistake really but still: The Army Painter Quickshade cans are small for the price, really small. The images of the cans are fairly misleading and many pages don’t list the size of the cans so you’re paying upwards of £18 for 200ml of varnish which should do 200 minis - there are bigger cans, but the price catapults with the size.
Any way, for those who don’t know what this stuff is, here’s a vid (there are not many good ones, this shows it off a little better than most even if the quality is a bit naf):
Quick process for this is generally:
- Prime (you can speed the process along if you use a primer colour that is the same as a base colour you will use a lot of like the video above)
- All base colours
- Quick shade
- Quick edge highlights or dry brush with base colours
The last step is optional unless the shine on the models bugs you:
- Matt varnish coat over the top - This can be tricky so you MUST follow the instructions on the can to the letter, fortunately it doesn’t take much of a coat to counteract the shine from the varnish
I have something like 12 Zombies from Zombicide primed in purple, green and blue which we’re going to use as a way of varying the rotting skin colour of the zeds and minus the matt varnish step, we’re going to try the process out on these models over the weekend.
I’ll post some pictures of the primed models up when I get home later.
