I dont. I use it a replacement for Army painter..I use Vallejo quick shade black over grey to bring the details up ...I use the Klear stuff on larger 28mm models on 6 and 10mm I use W&N Nut Brown ink

If I were creating Pendraken I wouldn't mess about with Romans and  Mongols  I would have started with Centurions , eight o'clock, Day One!

I use B&Q's quick drying wood varnish in rosewood, about a fiver a tin and lasts for ages, gives good shading and cover. A good matt varnish across the top is needed though!

He might have inspiration, along with Tim of Madaxman fame! Works well, lasts ages, cheap as chips Smiley

Yep - Wilko's Wood Stain. About 3 for a decent-sized tin...best diluted a bit.  Smiley

Im about to embark on the fools mission of setting up Battle of the Auroch Hills with 10mm figures as well as building a scale model of the battleground. Maybe next year.

A question:

I've used Pledge as a dip / wash at the end of painting, but never as an undercoat.

Does it's glossy finish cause problems with applying acrylics to the figure?

My experience is no when I have used as a wash over white primer.
