Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright i have decided to dip my tyranids after applying some basic colors.
my problem however is that i keep reading about different ways to get the dip onto the model?
paint it on?
dip then spin with a drill?
dip then shake?
Just looking fro some more opinions
OK i assume your using the glorious product thatis army painter,it has saved me so much time on so many things. Right for you gribbliesie homo/gaunts and stealers use the drill it gets the smoothest look by far but do this out side that stuff does not come offwith out alot of scraping and scrubbing. For your big lads lictors, fexes, hive tyrants and your little rippers get a cheap set of brushes and paint it on. When you are done with your brushes clean them in white spirit to get it off them.
Another thing i highly suggest is that ascamp as it may sound get some fake tan latex gloves because that stuff it utter hell to get off your hands.
Hope this helps and good luck with your nids.
Shaking by any means is much the same, as I understand it just chuck the paint on and then just chuck it off again!
Up, up and away!
