Have been trying out a new (to me) painting technique on my space wolves to try and get their main armour colour batch painted. Primed in dark grey, zenithal highlighted with the airbrush up to almost white, then gloss varnished and aggressively washed all over with a mix of black and blue washes, thinned down with a load of medium. The idea is the varnish and watered down wash prevent the wash from settling on any of the smooth surfaces and prevents pooling and tide marks, while only slightly changing the colour of the armour, and it has the added bonus of the varnish meaning you can correct any mistakes with a little thinner on a cotton bud before sealing your work in with a matt varnish. For bulk work I’m really happy with the results - it’s taken my least favourite, most time consuming part of painting marine armour (recess shading) and made it faster, easier and a hell of a lot neater than I’m capable of normally.

I wish I’d read this a few days ago. I used Biostrip 20 on my resin Arjac Rockfist and it ate him.
