Miniature Dipping - the art of painting a lot of miniatures to an acceptable level in very little time. Dipping refers to painting a miniature to an acceptable level with minimal highlights, mostly block painting and then dipping the entire miniature into a translucent dark solution.

Thank you Grafter for taking this one seriously and doing a fantastic walk through on it. I have heard about this technic many times but have a problem with the "just dip it, shake it around and let it dry" that so many people say.

I agree, a very good write up. So often you hear about dipping and people just sneer about it, like only the most awful subhuman would do it

Well, you can dip and still paint over it. Like for example, I am doing aircaste army soon and I will do the dark color and dip it, matt it and then redo the whites, as white does not dip well.
Another thing is I will take a dry brush or dipped force anyday than not painted. There is nothing worse than a silver surfer army. Dark Age forces are very small, there is no excuse for not painting it.
I kid you not, I was attending GAMA in March, and I was standing, yes, standing in BJ's garage, and I painted my 750 point Forsaken army right there for the staff tournament.
It is just a lot more fun when you have some terrain and painted minis. I dig it.
And thanks for the kind words :)
We have a lot of articles coming, stay tuned.
