I've been looking around for a better way to shade minis, and dips and the Citadel washes are the two that have caught my eye recently. I'm leaning toward the washes because ArmyPainter stuff is retarded expensive. However, if you have a reasonably exact recipe (product names and mix amounts in oz.) for a home-brewed dip and think that it's way way more awesome that any Citadel wash, I'd love to hear about it.
So I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the Citadel washes and can tell me about them. Obviously the Badab Black is going to look great on metallics, but which brown should I be using if I'm washing over Cygnar blues? I'm not a huge fan of P3's Armor Wash since it's too thin and doesn't settle to recesses very well; are the Citadels any thicker?
