Army Painter

I love Army Painter Quickshade. I had not painted miniatures in years when I bought this stuff. I hadn't gotten tired of the effort required for me to turn out even half decent figures, and had turned to using all pre-painted figures for my gaming needs. After moving to Knoxville, I heard of this dipping technique, and investigated further. In my internet searches, I turned up references to this particular product. I found a local hobby store that carried it, and picked up a couple of cans. The price was a bit steep, but I decided to take a chance.
And I love the stuff.
I am able to turn out miniatures with an acceptable paint job far faster than I ever did before. Now, I should say that I cannot compare the stuff to using the regular stain that many use for dipping. I have only used the Army Painter stuff, but I like it well enough that I'm hesitant to switch to anything else.

Woot! A blogger after my own heart! Quickshade is awesome! Some call it 'cheating." Well if your not cheating, your not painting!

Can't wait to see what you dip!

Amen, brother! I've used the stuff for everything from cowboys to space marines, and I've nothing but luck with it.
