I have recently started using watercolour paints to do washes in the same way I previously used oils (idea came from Awsome paint job and several other miniature painters)

basically works same way as an oil wash only you use water instead of white (mineral) spirits and its completly dry in an hour at the most 

Anybody else tried this ?

Have not tried this but I will give it a go--thanks for the tip. I guess it holds ok when you overcoat it with pledge [klear] or varnish?

Yes varnish or Klear over top is all it needs

I have used both varnishes and Klear over top without problems

I saw APJ using watercolours as washes but I am not sure the colour is as intense as will oils?

I've not really noticed much difference 

Watercolour does dry very matt which can make blacks and dark browns look grey, but this has always gone away when varnished for me.
