I mentioned that I've been exploring a new "speed painting" method, here are a few photos.  It's very similar to my past method but I've toned down some steps to make the process quicker:  spray can instead of airbrush, quick strategic highlights instead of layered highlights, etc.

Let me know what you think.

    1. Thanks Dan :)

      The wash is pretty simple and if I can find the time to write a tutorial I will. Basically, my steps are this:

      1. basecoat spray can (testers or similar)
      2. spray a layer or two of glosscote over the model
      3. Mix 3:1:1 of Vallejo Thinner (new clear formula): Vallejo Dark Wash: Vallejo Sepia Wash. Brush it over the whole model and draw off any excess.
      4. Once dry, use a brush dipped in Vallejo airbrush thinner to clean up the wash in spots where it's dried uneven
      5. Highlighting is easy... I use a toothpick. Dip it in un-thinned highlight color and touch the small details needing a highlight.

      Good luck, hope this helps!

  3. Marvelous. GHQ miniatures are well suited for washes.
