    I have read that applying two gloss coats will seal the paint in better, and then applying one dull coat to give the miniature the flat look. I have used Testors Dullcote exclusively, however by adding the two gloss coats (also Testors) before the final dull coat, will give the paint job a longer life.

    Has anyone done this before, and if so, what were the results?

    If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldn’t the Emperor have given them wings?

    I have never tried it before, but three layers sounds like a detail-erasing nightmare.

    I will have to try it out for myself, on a simple Marine. Maybe just one thin coat of gloss should work, just enough to seal the paint in.

    At the moment i am only using one coat of gloss varnish on my SM. I think i looks quite good. But then again i havent compared it to an army with flat varnish. My minis might look shiny and garish.

    I use it all the time, heck even one coat of polyurethane and one coat of dullcote works. It protects it quite well, although i dont think anything can stop the pointy edges on trophy racks from being worn away .
