More Civil War Dipping

 The latest batch of glossy, sticky iced buns get laid out to dry. It’s still quite early to say but I think they look okay.
 Interestingly, the first batch I did on Sunday night at 10.30 still aren’t 100% dry. There’s no rush however, I have plenty more to block out in the meantime. I did put a few fine scratches on the armour with a lead pencil, a bit like weathering a tank, it’ll be interesting to see if they are still visible once the Dip is dry. Not many left to do now, just the command with their standards.

I usually leave mine for three days to make sure, 48 hours when it is summer (as it is here in NZ)

They do look amazing. I haven't dipped in years, but it has a lot to recommend it.

They're gonna look great. Humidity affects drying time, don't know about where you live but here in Wales it's been raining since October pretty much non-stop - I poured some Vallejo water effects in Sunday and that's still not dry today (Wednesday).

If you want to kill the glossy effect Games Workshop's contrast medium is a very good matt varnish.
