Hello again to all and sorry for the big delay since my last post.
Holidays, painters block etc are all to blame.
I painted a couple of very old figures I found while raking through old boxes and this is one of them. I cannot remember who the original maker was but this and others are now sold by EM4.
I used my usual Army Painter Varnish, new tin, but ended up with a lot of white dots on the figures. I managed to get most off, but once photographed there were a lot more visible, so in the bin went the tin. Its a case of once bitten twice shy with me so I am now using Games Workshop Purity Seal and am happy with results.
The white dots are barely visible now unless photo is zoomed in on, but they are there and very annoying.
Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are most welcome.
