Oil Paint Weathering

Honestly, I’d never once thought about using oil paints on miniatures. Then again, I’m still a bit of a newbie when it comes to painting miniatures overall, anyway, so most of what I read is news to me! The Painting Corps posted a very cool little article today about using oil paints for weathering effects.

So what’s so great about it? What can this do that I can’t do with a wash? I decided to sit down and find out a couple of weeks back and was extremely surprised, and happy, with the results.

Has been the Dungeon Master for the group since the early nineties. It all started when a school friend’s mother ran U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh for him and some friends. Enthralled by this new thing he'd discovered, he quickly assembled a group of his own and began running games. From that point forward, he was hooked and hasn’t looked back since. He’s run games that run the gamut from old school to indie, and is always looking to try new systems or tinker with existing ones.
