    1. Yeah, have to admit that was what drew me to this version of the Orc Bommerz. The Colour is a 50/50 mix of Fiery Orange and Golden Yellow finished with Army Painter Strong Shade

    1. Hi James, Armypainter Quickshade is a tinted varnish, comes in three ‘tones’ Soft, Strong and Dark. I’ve use Strong Tone on all the work I’ve posted.

      You can either dip the figure into the varnish and ‘shake off’ the excess or brush the varnish on – I always brush the varnish on for a number of reasons, one shaking the excess off is messy! Two, its not cheap and dipping figures uses a lot of varnish, but most of all brushing the varnish on gives me much greater control of how it shades the figure as I can always brush a little more into the folds after the first layer is dry.

      Quickshade should be well shaken before use. After you’ve done replace the lid shake and store the can upside down – this will stop a skin forming on the ‘top’.

      The Range of Armypainter products is available from http://www.maelstromgames.co.uk/index.php?act=cat&cre=hob-tap&sou=cat Quickshade is £16.19 delivered.


  1. The quickshade stuff is a brilliant way of quickly finishing a large number of models. You won’t get the same precise control as you will with a range of targeted washes, but its a lot faster, and can actually tie the model together better, if like me you aren’t exactly an expert 🙂

    I don’t use it at the moment because I tend to favor metallic looks and inks, but if/when I start on LotR figures, I’ll be looking at using it.

    And great to hear from you, James!
