Having gone over to the "dip side"when it comes to painting figures en masse I have been pondering the possibilities of dipping vehicles using the Army Painter dips. With most miniatures we use Strong Tone (that has a dark drown tint), occasionally using Soft Tone on lighter miniatures (hoplites for example) but I was wondering how much use Dark Tone (with its black pigment) would be especially on vehicles.
Consequently I dug out this 6mm scale Old Crow hovercraft which has been sat around for a little while to experiment on. I'm not sure if the photos show what a decent effect it has produced but I am very pleased with it, especially given how smooth a model this is. I'm going to try it some more on a few other vehicles (including the die-cast Somua S35) but am mentally planning digging out my old NAC and ESU Full Thrust fleets and repainting them (I was never 100% happy with my dry-brushed efforts previously).
Whilst I was in a dipping mood I also dipped all the zombies so hopefully I am still on target to get these finished in "Zombie Month".
