King Heresy: I use oil washes all the time, rarely do I touch an acrylic wash. One tube of oil paint lasts several years at least. Use it with turpentine. I apply varnish (satin) beforehand to improve flow, and to make it easier to remove any excess wash. You can wait several days before removing excess, but it's easiest to do after a couple of hours when the oil wash is completely dry, but before it has a chance to really set.
@Wizzdk without knowing, you've partially answered my true question :P I use a gloss varnish.. but its SO glossy it actually causes the pigments to clump up when the medium evaporates! It's TOO glossy! I've got to strip my Cawl and try again with satin...
not a critique, simply an observation ;) I mostly use oils because I airbrush highlight... and if you do that you don't want to smear acrylics all over it and do the standard "go over it with base colour" again for obvious reasons :P
@tekton if you're the one doing the mathhammer 8th, may I recommend doing standard deviation splits for variable damage weapons?
example the scorpion twin pulsar, 4d6 shots, which has an average of 14, but is highly likely to be anywhere between 12-16, and that can significantly effect the average result
showing a spread instead of a dead average is more useful especially when applying effects like guide or reroll auras, since it allows you to see the relative strength of the aura when at +/- stddev for shot variability
and helps figure out where to place said auras for maximum effect
UI/UX is the part I'm worst at, even though I manage people that are actually good at it. But I always like to keep side project so I'm not "that guy manager" who doesn't really know what he's doing in terms of code, etc.
