|Robot Mummy WIPs - The Osiran Service Robots have been primed and washed|
Disconcertingly though, on this occasion, the varnish seemed 'hellbent' on eradicating a fair portion of "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade, which had up until this point been providing each sculpts' bandages with plenty of shading and definition. As a result I was left with several figures which looked as if they hadn't been washed at all...

Some more Dr Who villians! I'm going to have to blame you,Simon for the constant bombardment of Black tree minis by my middle daughter. She is rather taken by all sorts of geeky scifi, but the good doctor is her favorite! I do remmeber these fellows when younger and the creepiness when the wrappings were torn from a mummy head.
they racked up quite the body count with the victims running about the English estate with only the Dr and athe groundkeeper's gun for defense! ;)
It seems you recovered a bit from the lacquer issues. the Agrax wash piped the wraping detail rather well!
In the future be advised that there is a matt spray called workable fixitive. It is an artist spary that is intended to protect charcoal and pastel drawings while still allowing the artist to coninue to work on the piece. The spary does alter ink a bit, but not as drastic as lacquer does. I used to use crystal clear on minis which is very glossy, but when I began using ink the spray would wipe it out. the matt fixitive spray lessened the damage to the ink considerably...I'm sure the rest of the gang may have other tricks to help you too!
