|Shiny AWI - all 30mm Stadden figures|
|More shiny AWWI- again Stadden.|
For instance my WW1, WW2 and Modern collections are all matt varnished . Indeed overall- although I like the shiny dudes by far the majority of my collections are matt finish.
|This lot of 15mm irregualrs simply would not look right all shiny|
|and you can't be shiny whilst carrying on up the Khyber.|
As a general- and oft- broken rule it is older figures that look better shiny I think but equally period comes into it too. I can't imagine my NW frontier blokes being shiny.
|Yet I could not conceive of these shiny dudes being matt..|
Yet having laid down that "rule" my ECW collections break it have both shiny and matt armies for that period.
None of my 40mm collections are shiny so possibly it is a retro thing .
Ah well Not to worry after all shiny is as shiny does- except when it doesn't//////
