I bought some of The Army Painter Quickshade and decided to try it out on some Northwest Frontier Ral Partha figures. I had obtained some used figures from Dennis Trout but they were in pretty bad shape. I also bought some from Great Endeavors http://www.greatendeavours.co.uk/colonials/ as the ones I got from Dennis were limited. Below is a picture of what the used figures looked like.
This is a picture after they were dipped in the Quickshade. It gives them a Glossy look, but does a nice job of shading.
Here is what they look like after spraying the dipped figures with some "dullcoat".
Next is my paint job on a Ral Partha British figure.
Here is the same figure after "dipping".
Finally the finished figure after spraying with "dullcoat".
All in all, the Quickshade does a nice job. The British figure looks much better than the photos show. I now have almost a full TSATF unit of Afghans done. Working on the Brits now. Gawd how I hate painting. With the Brits it isn't too bad. I spray paint them khaki and then there are but 6 other colors, flesh, white belts, brown rifle, shoes and straps, off-white haversack, dark blue puttees, steel gun barrels. Next up Gurkas and then some more afghans.
