They're might not win a painting competition but the ratio between time and result is really fine I think. The shiny look is unattractive but they wrote that in the instruction of Army Painter Quickshade and I wanted to cover the with matt varnish anyway so I that doesn't trouble me.
The next evening I did the finishing touches and put some highlights on the edges of the helmet etc. Additionally I painted the hessian tape and I hated it.
After varnishing the figures with matt varnish I finished the bases. I used some sand, pebbles and static gras.
Here is the whole gang:
And some close-ups of some of the guys:
The result is fine I think. The Quickshade's effect is far better than everything I got with other inks and washes. 25 EUR ($ 30) is much for a can of paint. But since it should be enough for several infantry regiments it seems rather fair.
Don't forget, that usual ink comes in much smaller bottles. For example: Vallejo Inks are about 2.50 EUR ($ 3) for 17ml. The Quickshade can holds 250ml. In Vallejo bottles that's about 15 bottles which approximates 37,50 EUR ($ 45).
