Damn, turns out I should have been painting over wash years ago. I think I’ll continue to wash with chestnut ink for the Mordheim figures as it gives them a nice dark grimy look that seems appropriate. However for 40k I’ll start using ink wash over the base colours and then highlighting with a bit of light blending. Those Basilisk tankers look much better already :|… Crap. Time to repaint my 1800 points Imperial Guard army.
