Now, Before I go and buy yet more of these vile little vials.............

What I want to know is since the author is indiscriminately using the words "Shade," "Wash," "ink," interchangeably; what is he on about and what could be substituted for this so called "Ink" mix.

I'm sure a lot of tyros such as myself would like a succinct explanation.

Here's your chance to shine and have the Blackadder in your debt.:D
To the best of my albeit limited knowledge a wash and a shade are the same thing just different names, a thin medium with little pigment and does not effect the overall colour you wash/shade over too much, and an ink is a thin medium with uber pigment and changes the colour it goes over quite a bit. I'm sure the proper paint beards on Heresy can verify or correct this
