|The benchmark - flat painted - gunked - varnished|

My one concession which I introduced after painting about 20 cavalry was to run a flesh wash over the flat Dwarf Skintone I used for faces and hands. It adds a little depth and lifts the figures up a notch.
This kind of painting is not enjoyable for me as I like to think of myself as reasonable with the brush and capable of achieving interesting and competent levels of technique. On the credit side of the ledger industrial scale painting offers its own rewards the chief of those being - large numbers of consistent looking miniatures finished in very short periods of time.

|Not pure art but this is just over 1 hour of work.|
|Expend love on your bases - it compensates for an average paint job|
As for the results, those are for others to judge.
