I agree with Fist, they will make a decent gaming army. I do find that dipping works better for organic looking things however as opposed to marines and such. Also, from what I understand, dipping works better if a darker colour stain is used. These don't really look like they have much of the medium on them which cuts down on the shading that dipping provides.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Hmmmm,

In terms of cracking them out at a decent clip and having a tabletop army ready in no time I think this is an awesome idea. That being said, they look very 'plastic' like something you would buy right out of the box.

The effort is appreciated but I have seen a few players try the actual 'army painter' product and imo, it looks a bit better. They look a lot less plastic. Either way though, very cool find.

I really think they look 'plastic' because of the Space Wolves color scheme. I've never been a fan of it, but I picked it cause my friends army is Space Wolves and this is primarily for him. Also, the models would look much better with a darker varnish to give it more depth and shade so they wont look so flat and 'plastic'. Some DoW Blood Ravens would probably look pretty decent using this process.

Yeah, you may be right - it just might be the scheme - I also agree that a darker varnish would help a lot.
