Nice. From a cost perspective, you may want to find a Paynes Grey acrylic from a local arts and craft store and dilute that to make your wash. It would be a lot more cost effective than Badab Black

It's true that the wash cost a few quid since I killed a almost full pot of badab black!
But I'm kinda used to paint/brushes/sprays being consumables...

I've never tried Paynes Grey, I read the article and think I'll give it a go at some point.
But if I'm going to dilute Paynes Grey, wouldn't it be equally effective to dilute Chaos Black?
I use custom mixes alot, but I always end up trying to remember the ratios when the mix runs out!

I sprayed all 100 bases in one batch, but I only drybrushed and inked 50 of them.
By using Badab Black straight from the pot, I don't need to think to hard in the future When I'm painting the next batch?

I'll update the article with some new photos of the squad once the bases are proper finnished.
At that time I'll add in a mini review of Foundations of war resin bases.

I used washing up liquid, the release agent is kinda oily and you'll need help to break it up and wash it off.

Loved it thank you

I would caution against resin for centre pieces however as the base will be difficult to make look clean, as opposed to a customized base usin pebbles, little chips of stone etc
