Well, my results were mixed. I used the Windsor & Newton inks as recommended by Ray. With that done, I left the to dry last night. I woke early enough that I decided to go ahead and varnish. Well, I forgot the instructions he game me to brush on some varnish first. I went straight to the can of spray matte varnish. The figures came out darker than I hoped they would.
The cowboys are actually the "Bad Bob" figure (figure 19). It comes with a dead, foot and mounted version. I tried to give him a gray suit with a leather vest and white shirt.
The other 2 packs that I have are the "Gunmen with Pistols" (figure 2) and "Posse with Pistols" (figure 5). These are nice minis with 3 variations per pack. I have placed one of each variant on a painting stick. I was going to see how Bad Bob came out first before trying these.
Also I tried to finish out some painted CSIR figures. Again, I used the Windsor & Newton ink and forgot the brush on varnish. They came out darker than intended.
I also had some CV33 tankettes laying around. These came out shiny even after the matt varnish.
I am not sure if I will leave these as is or try to redo them. I paint so slow, I am loathe to redo them. Any suggestions out there to save them?
