    You can try getting some depth through using washes. The skin on the mounted figure would help from this. Try mixing paint and water in a 1:8 mixture or so -- one part paint and eight parts water....

    I second the use of Testor\'s Dullcoat. I\'ve used it nearly exclusively for two years. It can even cut the gloss of an ink wash. The only problem...

    I believe the 50 vote guideline is because Chern Ann wanted enough votes to get a decent distribution. For example, say a mini gets a 1 vote, a 5 vote, and a 9 vote. Which one(s) do you remove?

    Well, I don\'t suggest that a spread should be made for each figure. I\'m really only interested in the spread for my own figures, but I\'m curious for a couple.

    Don\'t worry about it. Any scores too far out of the standard deviation will be thrown out of the mix. Chern Ann has an algorithm that takes care of it, but it doesn\'t work until a figure has at...

    Is this a 120mm tall figure in 28-30mm scale (a really big monster) or a person in 120mm scale?

    If the former, I\'m likely to get it. I\'ll probably pass on a 120mm scale piece.

    Well, the mean for the site is currently around 6.4 . So for every score above that, there\'s one below that.

    Only 32% of all the figures have a score above 7.
    Only 10% have a score above 8....

    If the miniature is drastically improved, then replacing the miniature will cause it to still have the lower votes points. I\'d resubmit the picture entirely.
