Like this do you mean, oil painting is ok for larger pieces but I found 28mm too small to get good blends.

right I never had a problem..I used to block in with enamels, or more often than not and oil/enamel mix.. then glaze with oils,, a bit tedious.. I use the same sort of basic thing with acrylic, substituing a wash.. acrylics are naturally transparent, especially the blues and greens.and wik little effort at all you can make them very rich and deep.. a fact which actually annoys a lot of painters but suits me fine.They seem to have been designed especially for colour on colour work, a fact which again seems to offend many so now we are getting these good coverage, rather dull colours..shame I say shame.. I know the GWs of the world chose acrylics for their marketability not their artistic finesse.. nut they are brilliant in my estimation..

Here here, I say. Any one who has seen the European painters at work knows what level or finesse that can be achieved with acrylics particularly on fantasy miniatures where colour freedom allows for some stunning work with colour and light.
