I'm talking about the parts that ARE painted, like the eyes and the shading. I dragged one through the dirt and that paint still wouldn't come off. I drag one of my customs through the dirt and all the paint peels off :x

How much do the wash paints usually run and do they stick to most all types of surfaces?

the ink wash paints in the citadel warhammer brands are about 2.00 over there..[iam from dallas but now live down in australia]
if you put a coat of matt or gloss sealent they will stick buetifully..you could put "blue ink" over "mithral silver" and get a real cool blueish metal.
hey, i am useing your nail polish hardner on wear points on some of my figs now and seems to be working...thanks for the heads up on that one.. :D

The guns started as machine guns for Corps figures after a little bit cutting they make great pistols
