Does anyone remember this tutorial from the old Ambush Alley or Rum Corps tavern?

If you are looking for fast painting techniques, I recommend investigating The Dip Technique. Base paint the figures their dominant color, then block paint the different bits, followed by brushing on the Minwax. At arm's length, they will look good, 20mm and larger. Cheers!

Yes, the Piers method? I think it originally featured on The Guild.

Iraqi sand, English uniform and a brown wash. I did a few figures myself like this. It does work nicely…
