Ok, as most of you know, my painting has come to a stand-still since I came to grad-school. In an effort to get some stuff painted I decided to try the dip. I’m not happy with the results. I don’t seem to have the hang of it and any advice is welcome. I used Minwax Bombay Mahogany, as that appeared to be the deepest shade other than black that I could find. I cut it with some thinner, but everything just looks brown. Below are some pics. Comments are welcome and encouraged.
Some Mage-Knight figs based for Hordes of the Things post-dip.
Dipped fig (on left) compared to the factory paint job (right). Definitely an improvement.
Here is where I was ultimately disappointed. This is 15mm Bosporan dude who looks like crap. I used extremely bright colors and everything looks drabby brown.
Rear angle. Again, craptastic look! The cape looks ok, but the flesh is wretched. Anyone try the Army Painter products on 15mm?
