So i finished the test miniature. It took me about 20 minutes to do , excluding drying times. I think it is a good table top standard. Definitely not for a painting competition. But can be used for one as a base or starting point. I tried this to see how quick I could get a new army painted by using mainly Contrast paints.

In my summer holiday (two weeks of) I will try to paint as many as i can. Aim is to paint a complete squad of US Marines for Vietnam. Lets see how much I can manage in 2 weeks!

With all the hype about these paints, will someone be carrying them at Historicon this weekend?

Your result on a historical figure is nice.

Here's an interesting Youtube video showing homemade versions of the "contrast paints":

This is basically turning the old "stain painting" technique in to a product line so you don't have to mix your own.

Sure is, EC. Just ask for GW's Seifried Memorial Paint Line next time you're in the shop and watch them wince.
