Newline Designs summer sale

Newline Designs have launched their summer sale with 25% off to celebrate 25 years in the business!

I’m already the proud owner of miniatures from their 20mm American Civil War, Colonial, Napoleonic and their 1/72nd Sikh War ranges. Personally I don’t see all that much of a difference between the 20mm and 1/72nd figures that I’ve seen, and I’m sure I’ll be mixing and matching some more of their masterful handiwork before too long 🙂

Matt varnish frosting

2016-06-05-frosting-small

ARGH! After applying a Humbrol Clear gloss varnish and leaving my miniatures for 24 hrs to dry, I applied a Humbrol Clear matt varnish. Much to my disappointment the jerries ended up looking like they’d just returned from the Eastern Front. To say that I’m gutted is an understatement after trying my best to make them look as good as I can.

Has anyone got any tips for removing frosting and preventing it from happening in future? Thank you in advance!
