Actually, Jin told me that the secret is not to dip, but to PAINT the solution onto the mini, using broad, sloppy strokes. Definately try to get in touch with Jin regarding this method, as I think he may have experimented with it a bit

Well, I am thinking that beastmen would be the perfect dipping army. Off to Home Depot to give it a whirl this weekend!

I've got at least 70 beastmen in the list and if dipping, then highlight/details works? hell man, I'll start hacking big stuff out of the list for MORE beastmen!

What are you going to hack? The version you had was solid!

It's minwax POLYSHADES

the plain old polyurethane won't do

You can do one of two things:

1) Basecoat everything
Dip the whole friggin model in the can
Pull it out and shake it like a polaroid picture

2) a much nicer, cleaner way is to treat it like a "glaze"
You can thin it with mineral spirits
Paint it on like a glaze/ink wash

My whole undead lizard army was dipped
I have also dipped a bunch of confrontation models
Jerrett Wells and I have been experimenting with this to try to make it more than just dunk and shake (which can come out messy)

You would be surprised how nice it looks - and it takes about 1/4 the time

Contact me offline, and I'll explain in greater detail and give you all the info you need.
Do you still have my email?
If not, I'm pretty sure either Matt or Nidal does.

We've been working on an HQ club article about this, but I just haven't had time, and Jerrett is lost in the world of warcraft...

I can't seem to find MiniWax Polyshade at my local Home Depot, anyone know of a store that sells it?

uhh, look harder? :P

seriously, it should be right by the paint aisle

otherwise, go to a paint supply store or local hardware place... it's literally everywhere

Did you ask?

I guarantee Home Depot has it.

As for the tutorial, I'm doing a "1 month army challenge"
The first piece should be up this weekend.

I'll do doing various "dipping" techniques, from actually dipping to glazing, to "watering down" the dip...

I'll be sure something is up by Sunday (but it should be earlier)...
