I recently picked up some Devlan Mud wash from the good folk at Brookhurst Hobbies after hearing positive things about it. A quick post to The Miniatures Page asking how experienced types used it elicited some excellent responses and tonight I tried a little experiment.
I had some Numidian skirmishers - mostly in off-white tunics, though with the odd tan or brown in there as well - and thought I'd see how the tunics would look after a wash.
My usual washes are home brew using Future/Klear, water, a drop of hand soap and a bit of paint, but the advantages of having a ready-mixed and consistent wash to hand are pretty obvious. Some of the tunics probably turned out a little dark so I might be a little less heavy handed in future, but base coat, wash, and highlight looks to be a good quick-and-dirty way to do them.
Here are a few shots, but please bear in mind that these figures are not yet finished so don't get too shocked by any shoddiness you may be witness to!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to doing some more product testing.
