This is the product:
Here is a before, with the basecoats:
And here is after drying for 12 hours
I'm using the GW orcs as test victims for this technique, just in case it didn't work right, that way I haven't ruined any miniatures I really like & would care about :D

I think I've found my new tabletop speed painting technique...

I must admit that I use the Army Painter dip too. It's just amazing for speed painting. I really can't believe the things you can achieve with it, especially on non-human, very textures sculpts.
It's pretty much for me.

Wow, it does look like a good job, but I think you can get the same results with brown liner, GW Wash, and Future Floor wax for a smaller price.
I know I definitely can't get the same results with that mixture. The transitions using the quick shade are so much smoother. They almost look blended. It also works as a really good gloss varnish, so the paintjobs are protected really well. I need to take some pictures of the BF's Hordes army at some point. I really can't believe the results he gets with this stuff.

I just tell people to have Q-Tips handy when doing any dipping to get the excess off, and the Army Painter products are NOT the same as the wood varnish.
I don't think Army Painter dip will appeal to people who don't use MinWax anyway. Some folks don't even use Dull Coate or other sealers, as they are purists, and that's cool too.

Though I will say one thing. Never for any reason you can imagine ever, ever make the mistake I made. As follows.
I managed to break my mini and loose it's shield in the dip. So my idea to get it out was to take some of that sticky putty that you use for posters and such, (I use it to hold minis on stands to paint them.) Anyhow I stuck some on the end of a brush and poked around in there until I got my shield.
It seems that dip melts the putty, and the putty turns into the most sticky substance on the planet. My word.. I pulled the gob of stuff off my brush and then it was all over me. I had to wash and scrub and like to never have gotten it off. Awful...
Though the dip worked wonders.
