Two sprays of Testors dull coat and the result is surprisingly good. I think it’s safe to say that this is the way forward for large armies. It has even got me thinking about my other large projects like the ACW and AWI. In fact the drummer boy here is a sneak peek into what Confederate troops would look like.
Apart from the quickness of painting the figures I think the main advantage is the tough varnish coating. I have a little boy growing up and the idea of tough coated soldiers is a good one.
I thought the Dip shading on this officer was too much when he was drying, but once dry and matte varnished he looks okay.
