BLOOD The final flourish, as it were, was to add some blood spatter to  lend a truly nightmarish quality to the big Orc. The blood  splatter is AP-WP1105 - Dragon Red. The spatter is achieved  with the Small Drybrush brush. Get some paint on your brush,  and then and then brush most of the paint out, when you have  very little paint on the brush stipple the paint on and gradually  build up a blood stained effect. Better to have to little paint on  your brush than too much. VARNISH Make sure all the paint on the model is thoroughly dry before  commencing varnishing. GlosS The models were then given a coat of Humbrol polyurethane  gloss varnish and set aside for 24 hours to dry completely. Be  careful not to let the varnish pool, especially under the legs.  You don’t need a very thick coat of varnish. Matt Then they were given two coats of AP-WP1103 - Anti-Shine  Matt Varnish. Be even more careful when painting on the matt  varnish. When applying the matt, brush it out well from any  nooks and crannies where it is likely to collect and pool.
