These are, again, from the Italeri Scot Greys re-issued set finished quite a long time after I bought it. 18 horsemen with good poses, but they had some trouble with the acrylic varnish I bought.
The varnish can't be mixed - it's a matte one which means it's white when it is applied and when adding black to it the two become blue together? I mean, what? So these ones had a black wash, then a layer of plain varnish which then didn't really dry the way I wanted, some repairs again and it would do then...
Command figs on the flank here.
A bird's eye view.
What can be told on the positive side is the acrylic varnish is perfect for basing, prepping and applying finish (basically everything but dipping, for which I would use it the most). It also holds static grass much better than the Revell enamel one, guess because it's less fluid and can take more straws.
This little troublemaking, however, means I can't finish the Fricklander FNG Grenadiers this week, some lesser jobs such as rebasing my Vikings and making them more 'matt' and a painted single metal fig is to come - plus a short 'report' from my visit to the local flea market and the loot I had there. Interestingly I can always make more posts than I thought when checking what to do :)
