I've used it for painting bases and scenery. Very thick consistency, would need a lot of thinning for use on figures.

Don't.

Depends to some extent on your painting methods.

System 3 is thick (made specifically to allow impasto as well as other techniques) and, if thinned, will need a matt medium, using water alone will give very poor & often uneven coverage. Pigmentation is reasonable; white & earth colours being the best & even the reds & yellows are not bad.

As mentioned above, for terrain it works well & a small. carefully chosen, palette will do most terrain needs.

If you build semi-transparent coats over an undercoat then it works fine but I wouldn't recommend it for opaque block painting & wash.

Thanks – I'll try it for terrain!

Excellent for terrain.

Brilliant for doing building 'daub' plaster texture and the like. Much better than filler because its easier to apply as a thin layer and sticks to the walls like the proverbial, and once on it never chips. You can also use it as a layer to scrape brickwork into. Like on this scratch built windmill.

BTW. Don't worry about what colour it is, think of it as 'daub'. This church was blue before being painted.

Blue left over from basing 'sea' which it also does well
