Hiya Mik! That is really a cool idea, and I've wondered if the dip technique would be worth a go....I will definately give it a try now!!
Hey man! Yeah, dipping is pretty great, you can take a totally mediocre paintjob and improve it quite a bit. Definitely worth it for the foot troops, but not so much for centerpiece and character models. Try it, you'll like it, I promise, haha.
