Hundred of miniatures to paint, so little time? SAVE TIME PAINTING! The Army Painter Quickshade Dark Tone is a must-have in your miniature painting arsenal. It is specifically engineered to add highlights, effects, and color-richness on models for much less time, cutting the paintwork by more than half.

The Quickshade is a pigment-based solution. Using it with the famous, old-known dipping technique, you'll end up with colors that come through fantastically.

Dark Tone Variant:

The dark tone is based on a strong black pigment, making it much darker than the brown-based strong tone variant. It isn't just the best for armor and metal but also for furry animals, machines, knights and models needing a sharp contract.

No more dealing with too many details 

When you're working on a bunch of mobs for a game, you can ditch the time-consuming addition of details with different washes and paints. Just give them a nice even coat and let Quickshade give a consistent shading across all your minis.

Brushing Method:

If you prefer the brushing method, use a brush that you don't plan to use for much else. The varnish leaves a sticky, oily residue that may not wash out with just plain water.

The Quickshade is designed and formulated to work with 10-28 millimeters (mm) scale miniatures.

TIP: If the end result is too glossy for your taste, use The Army Painter Anti-Shine Matte Varnish (sold separately) to remove the shine and add more depth. Just a quick blast is all you need.
