I have recently been repainting some of my Sisters... Well, one misplaced wash of Midnight Blue on the armor while experimenting with paint scheme, and here we go to the stripping vat... NOT!
I tried to save the miniatures by applying four successive coats of black ink on the armor, and must say I am really pleased with the resulting effect of refelctive black armor.
What are your thoughts on this? Any comments/suggestions?
pics would be helpful

Gloss can be very good if applied to the proper locations. I think it looks bad if the whole miniature is gloss. I don't like skin, clothes, etc to be gloss. However, armor plates, gems, glass, etc can certainly be gloss. If I want something gloss I usually paint it with clear gloss after the miniature is finished and already sprayed with a matt clear coat.
Ink is normally used to add depth like you see in laquered samurai armour. If you want armour buffed to a mirror sheen just apply gloss varnish to the relevant parts.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
