    Gloss Varnish

    I was wondering if somebody could put a before and after shot of a model, with using gloss varnish, I want to see if it really makes it look as glossy as everyone claims. Thanks!

    i dont have any pics but i can assure you that the before and after effect of the varnish is quite noticable. y dont you just give it a test run on a model your not using. i use old models to test paint scheme's for my new army's just to get the feel of the colours and also what would look good together.

    i mainly use the varnish on fantasy models to get the lacqured effects on armours and on 40k models i use it for gems, eyes etc not really armours unless on my IC models.

    just dont make the mistake that i saw one kid make at my local GW, he sprayd a carnifex with varnish then wondered y the black spray wouldnt hold. he thought that the varnish came first for sum strange reason.

    its good stuff to have, ive even mixed colours with it so it comes out shiny but not as shiny as a flat cote of varnish.

    yeah man, when painting my skaven assassins i used it for the venom on their blades.

    another thing that may look cool is if you use PVA (i kno that sounds weird) mixed with colour(inks work best for the colour) (maybe a green for the nids) and then use that, i used it for like drops of venom comin from blades etc, i just waited until it started to set a bit then applied it to the models (with a fair bit of mucking around) only did it once and it took a fair while for it to set so i had to watch it.
