I recently decided to replace my GW
washes (somewhat Reluctantly) with Secret Weapon Washes.
I bought the entire line and being in the middle of painting up a Black Templar army i picked out every wash that seemed a good match for a black paint job (Armour Wash, Blue Black Wash, Soft Black Wash, Heavy Body Black Wash)
Off the bat i noticed that once dried these washes have a fairly glossy finish so i applied a Matt Varnish to reel this glossyness back.
Despite the Matt Varnish there is still a noticeable difference in each shade of black produced by these select washes, i may go with either Armour Wash or Blue Black wash for my Black Templars (parchment wash will be handy too!)
I found that these washes had to be shaken vigorously before use so dropping an agitator in each bottle certainly makes things easier.
They seem like the kind of washes that would work best when applied with care and precision on select surfaces, so now that i have tested out the effects with complete coats i might have a crack at an Ork and mess around a bit with this extensive range of washes (30 for $100.00
Sorry about the sloppy paint jobs on these Backpacks! I was just trying to pump out testers as quickly as i could.
