In the latest issue of Oubliette one of the reviews is about a product called Quickshade. As mentioned in that review, here are a few photos of the miniatures which I varnished with Quickshade.
The figures were all rescued from my dusty figure box in the loft and date back to the 1980s. In descending order, they are: DA1 Dwarf Thief by Asgard, FM63 Ogre by Asgard, and Half-Orc Cleric-Thief by Citadel.
I have a few more figures to paint in the next month and I intend to post some more photos to give more of a step-by-step guide.
