In earlier posts, I talked about starting the Nihilators.
Saturday I primed them and got the red & black on them.
Monday I did detail work on some other figures, Tuesday I felt like Drek with a head cold.
So, I got home yesterday and set up a clean sheet on wet pallet. After dinner, about 5pm I put black, red, skorne flesh mix, gold, off white, chestnut, steel on the pallet. Clean paper towel to wipe the brush, brush cleaner standing.
Between 5 and 11 I got all the base colors done and all the touchup. The figs looked really flat. To be honest, I would not want to put them on the table.
Picked up the paints, got out the quart of dip. Put down a paper towel. Popped the cover.
I wish I had a better light set up, because these pictures don’t do justice to the definition on the detail after the dip.
These figures are not done. I will do some high lights on the flesh, metal and cloth. Maybe do the eyes.
To wrap this up, I do not use Dip all the time.
When do I use it? Usually when there is a lot of flesh or skeletons.
Can you use it more than that? Of course, it your figure, a dipped army is better than primer or metal.
You can get water based stains in colors? Yes, there are all sorts of shades and you can get colors too. http://www.minwax.com/products/color-guide/ There are other products that will work, that is just what I use.
