I especially like the rock golems holding the candy corn.

just finish my Army Painter Dark Tone can. switching to Strong Tone. I`m excited about the results, because I liked strong tone ink more when using with some of my miniatures.
anyone using strong tone dip?

I use it on my orcs and goblin. Gives nice results on goblin green  as well as the off-whites and browns I use on them.
Less result on dark red.

Nice stuff for a speed job.

I agree with the dark tones for zombies, although strong is okay, the dark really makes things pop and look dirty. I like the strong and soft tones on skin features depending on the look I am going for. I dont have the dip cans, is there any difference from the washes in color/tone/etc? What technique do you use with the dips? Do you dip and shake to get the excess off?

there is a huge difference in my opinion. inks and dips are very different. When I had full can I dip and shake off. Now I use my brush.

That's how it works. Basecoat then dip. Either brush on the dip, or dip the miniature into the dip. Sometimes you spray the dipped miniature with dullcoat (?) to reduce glossiness. The dip is similar to wood varnish. BoardGameGeek has a good amount of dipping advice, as does ArmyPainter.com . I'm pretty sure "if you do it right" you can't tell if a miniature has been dipped or washed.

While washes are typically used after basecoating, you can also use it after priming to add shadows and blacklining. This prewashing also reduces the dreaded "white areas" when you're trying to paint two adjacent areas without the paint of one area overlapping the painted section of another. Depending on how the eyes were sculpted, it can outline the eye socket in black. I don't know why it's so rare I read about painting the eye this way, but it saves a *lot* of work!

Nice thanks for the info, I use washes of different colors and tones and was looking into the dips as a way to speed up the process. Epecially when the giant box of MYTH minis arrives, anything that can help save time while looking good is a step in the right direction.

With just the 6 heroes left from Zombicide, I had a taste of whats to come haha

Is that a... blisterpus?  Also, what's with the white base rings?  Is that a requirement of the game?
