With approximately 450 figures to base for my Pickett's Charge Project, it's time to make the important decision whether to spray the figures with a gloss finish, or use a matt/flat finish. I've heard that some people use both, starting with a gloss coating on the figure and followed up with a spritz of Dull Cote or similar spray matt finishes. I did a test figure using the gloss/matte method and while it looked alright, some of the gloss shine was coming through the matte layer.
Gloss looks good on my Ancients and Sudan figures, but I kind of lean towards a matte finish for the American Civil War for some reason.
I'm wondering what the great Hive Mind has to say about the choice of finishes on my ACW figures.
