"have been asked by a few people how I painted my Soviet armour, so hopefully this guide will help you out. It is an easy technique and will get you an effective tabletop quality force in a very short time. The technique is nothing new but it may help out those that are not aware and just starting out in the magical world of painting…"

That's a great technique. I like the faded, worn paint look of the minis.

Thanks for sharing.

What type of varnish do you use to protect against the enamel paints?

Would love to see a tutorial on how you base and paint your troops as well.

Those are very nice.

As regards varnish for enamels, I tend to use an acrylic varnish to prevent the enamel wash being "dragged" off .
