Yes, I believe so but that my next test, the trick will be to not to create brush marks on it, there was 2 options 1. apply with a brush and 2. apply with the foam-brush 'thing' either way I want to test it. I don't think I mentioned in the video but it also significantly helps with the overall strength of the model as a bonus.

If that works I'm up for a 5L bottle of it !!!

Podcast EP24: A chat with Jon Russell.

In this bumper episode, we are joined by Jon Russell of Warlord Games fame. In addition to his dedicated work for Warlord, Jon is a multifaceted wargamer and also veteran of many years service.

In this episode we spend time learning about Jon's wargaming pedigree, before learning more about his role at Warlord, the writing of 'Bolt Action: Korea', and Jon shares with us what he can about what Bolt Action V3 might look like, and the 'Raiders Attack!' Supplement that still has much life left in it.

All this plus Warlord event support, balance in tournaments and other definitely non-controversial(!), highly entertaining and informative topics. Sit back and enjoy a chat with Jon, and us, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
