I am grateful to Sigur from Battlebrush Studios
for giving me the tip about Vallejo Metal Medium. This gives a beautiful metallic sheen, just what my Romans needed to make them stand out more.
Originally they were painted in base colours and then dipped in Army Painter Strong Tone Dip. The end result was OK, but nothing special. The metal was rather dull and lifeless. Now with this I can put my army on the table without too much embarrasment.
I just need to learn how to win.
Very nice paint job. I might be able to get out of work on the Sat 12th and go to SALUTE, I’ll let you know. Any requests if I make it?
How does the Vallejo work?
It’s pretty straightforward. I usually use it either to brighten up some kind of metallic paint or just use it for the last final highlights on metallics. You can also mix it with regular paint to make your very own metallic paint colour but let’s be honest – how often do you need any metallic colours such as red, blue, pink and so on? 😉
