Crowtales 15-28 of 52: Privateer Press Cygnar - Dipped
Like I said - I've been busy. I have a game day coming up this weekend and I decided I wanted to gather up some of the other forces I have and prep them all for this. I also wanted to test a few techniques in more concerted ways. Thus, the Legion of Everblight stuff is all in a stark mode with Drybrushing as the featured technique.
These Cygnar are using something that I've seen for years but hadn't ever seen done in a way I liked - until a few months ago someone posted a tutorial that looked fantastic. So I decided to try it. I went with The Army Painter's Quickshade (Dark Tone), which is more expensive than traditional dipping using Minwax, but I really was wanting something for mini's especially.
It works easy enough, simply primer and apply the base colors you want - then dip it in the Quickshade. Shake off as much of the Quickshade as you can, and then let it dry. I think the results look pretty damn good for very quickly painted mini's.
