Hundred of miniatures to paint, so little time? SAVE TIME PAINTING! The Army Painter Quickshade Strong 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.

Strong Tone Variant: The strong tone shade gives a travel-worn, sepia effects, making it excellent for the dead, zombies, grimy and dirty-looking figurines, chests and tombstones. It also keeps your bright colors bright and provide shadows where needed. It is best used for midtone and light colors.

Strong tone is basically brown, so it works great on reds, browns, yellows, whites, bleached bones, etc., but not so well on greens and blues.

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. While it can be easily confused with many floor varnishes and shoe polishes, we don't recommend at all using it on floors and shoes!

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.
