Painting question: dullcote on banners? Sat, 29 December 2007 08:22
I've got my first unit painted, and am ready to apply a protective layer of dull cote. When painting metal miniatures, I always use Testor's Dull Cote, so I guess that's what I'll use here.

Question: If I spray the banner (since I painted the exposed plastic wood-color), will it mess up the flag decal at all?

Thanks in advance,

Andrew

I'm not going to be that helpful, since I have pretty much zilch in terms of painting skills, but you should have a few extra banners that will rarely get used, so might want to try one of those just to see. Even better, if you have Goblin Marauders with the erroneously packaged blue reflex bow banners, you've got a couple of spares that really shouldn't make it into the game at all!

It might infiltrate the edges of the stickers. ou might get a little darkening of the sticker edges.

I've sprayed mine with gloss varnish, and it didn't affect the stickers at all. Individual results may vary of course!

I've never used dullcote. Personally (in model building primarily) I've had great luck with Future floor polish. You can use it straight for a glossy finish, or mix with a flat acrylic base for flat finishes. For more on the use of it, try this:
