What's the point of doing a wash and how do you do it 'cos the last time i tried it my Cadians just looked like they'd been rolling through the mud for a while.
Can anyone give me any advice on how to do a wash properly?

To do a wash properly u must wash then go over the areas where u did the wash to touch up the lines left by the wash. usually with ur highlights. I usually do a wash directly after I do my basecoat so that when I highlight all the ugly lines left by the wash will disappear
Here is what I do.
After basecoating the figure I will used a thined down wash of ink with a drop of rubbing alcohol( to break the surface tension) then rub it over the area being washed. when the ink is dry I will touch it up by drybrushing with the basecoat color, so only the shaded area is seen. After that, the highlights are applied.
