Dipping product - impressive way to get army on the table fast!

Post  squalie on Tue Dec 29, 2009 10:37 am

For those of you who think you don't want to put the time into detailing an army, this seems like a good alternative.

Dipped Dwarfs:

Dipped Beastmen:

I am seriously considering this for my Warriors army so that I can get it out of the way before Beastmen are released.

Seems to look allright. Though I am wondering if devlan mud wouldn't do the same thing?

Apparently this stuff is like motor oil. How many jars of Devlin would you need for an army? Also my new experience with these GW washes is that 1 coat is usually not enough.

For the fellows that hate painting this seems a God-send. I'm not joking that I think I might do an army with this stuff. Oh, the hours I would get back...

Wade and Jessop were talking abou tthis last time I saw them. I think they sell it at Sentry Box, and they might be able to get it at the Den for you as well.

I've seen this done quite abit with empire figs. seems to work best with brighter colors. It is indeed a faster way to get a painted army onto the table.

I heard somewhere that people were pissed off at a tournament because a "dipped" army won best painted.

I know of a yellow marine army that one a best painted that was dipped. I'm of the opinion that the best painted should go to the best looking army, as a whole. I've seen some armies that have nice pieces and the rest is crap. I am also NOT a fan of the theory GW used to preach that you make the front rank nice and skimp on the rest. That's gay.

A dipped army can look just fine. I think anything that gets painted armies playing the game vs. primed or plastic armies is great. I wonder what a khemri army would look like this way?

I couldn't agree more. I saw a dipped Tomb Kings army that was just black and Gold and it looked simply amazing. After assembly the whole army probably took just hours to paint.

In the link I posted the Beastman and Dwarf look good but the Machine looks awesome considering what was done. I asked him to post pictures of characters and Monsters using this method before I'm completely sold. I'm just getting old enough to realise how much time goes into just one army. And I'd like to have 3 ready to go! I have so many other hobbies to do and boobies to grab that I'd like to find time for all of it.

No, I didn't. Deep down, I don't think I could do this -- I simply don't paint that way. I was intrigued when I had a ton of models to paint, but now that I'm getting rid of most of everything, I'll actually have time to paint the armies that I have they way I wan't. Which is how I like it.

I still think it'd work great though.

On the "dipping" side of things, I tried my hand at it with my Spear Elves to try and get some figs painted for a tourney up here and they came out pretty decent. I scooped a black water based wood stain from the wally world up here for ~$2.00 dollars if I remember correctly. It is by Saman. I also brushed it on and didn't dip, to messy to dip. When and if I can track down a camera I will post some picks, had a lot of the tourney guys commenting on how they looked good and where surprised that you could dip high elves (and for reference I run a very original blue and white paint scheme). The important key was just thinning down the stain to a desired consistency.
