Recently I found new way of painting models, that is ideal form me, becouse usualy I paint only a few models per year. This technique names dipping an I use Quickshade Darktone (http://www.thearmypainter.com/product_presentation.php?page=1&ProductgroupId=1&ProductgroupName=Quick%20Shade), which is easy to get even in Czech Republic.



On this models I tried usability of all my vallejo paints for dipping. I learn, that very dark tones are not suitable for dipping.




Here is comparison of my hand paint figure (left), which takes me tens of hours to dipped figure (right), which takes me about 3 hours  ;). HI HMG was already sealed and I dont even clean it from mould lines. On HMG I tested scheme for my Mars army. I have some doubts about color of his armor (shoulders, breastplate etc), so maybe I will swich it for color of armor on swordless (but handfull  ;D) sergeant of Sunser Strikers.
All figures (except Joe Kowalski) are sprayed with flat varnish.

The shading on those turned out very well.   I may have to get some of this stuff to help me get all my armies painted up!

Keep up the good work.

I would like more info.  I hate to say this, but the dipping is comparable.  How frustrating.

Great results. Alot of people I know do this for fantasy armies. Looks great for Sci fi also.

Those look great! I need to try this for the army I need to paint before Talamania IV (A New Hope)

My new testing marine (the black one). Black scheme will be on my elite troops (please notice favourite capitol camouflage pattern "devilcat stripes" and new base from http://dragonforge.com/), while brown scheme will be on grunt troops. I hope you like it :-)

Looks really nice. The dipping produces really good results for you. I'm tempted to get some and try to see what results I get.

Yes I have -

I buy mine from Ace - One step stain called Tudor Satin works very well.

I have done some research and I will try the darkest shade from "The Army Painter"

I will let everyone know if the price tag is woth it. I have a feeling it will be.

BTW - 'The Army Painter" company was creatted by two GW ex-employees. I have bougt a can of grey primer spray and ordered a can of the dark tone stain.

I can't knock it before I try it.

They do return e-mails and were very helpful with some questions I had about their grey flock.
