I am quite pleased how they have come out and have only a spray of matting varnish needed to finish them off. I do, as I am sure you have all noticed, still put a coat of Humbrol 35 Gloss Varnish on all of my figures these days. The reason is very simple and straight-forward in that I do like to protect the figures and find that the old fashioned oil enamel base varnish's give the maximum protection for wargaming figures in action.
I find it very frustrating to remember back to my earlier days as a student spending hours and hours painting wargames figures only to find them scratched or slightly battered after a trip in the back of the car to the wargames club on a Wednesday night. Unfortunately in those younger days I never saw the benefit of varnishing.
I do now!
The gloss looks wonderful in my opinion and by the way I must admit to sometimes finding it very difficult to put the Dulcote over the top. However the level of protection given by using both in the process is second to none.
