Where did my Inks go?

Okay, so I know everyone likes these new washes, and I'll admit they have their uses and are nice BUT that does not make them the greatest things.I for one miss Inks. While washes are somewhat easier to use, they don't perform all the rolls that inks did.

1- They don't run as well into the low spots (at least I find they don't).
2- They aren't as glossy as inks. When I ink washed a marine, it had a mild shine to it. Wash with wash and there is no shine, just shade.

Varnishing over the wash does not do the same job either. That is just too glossy.

So anyone know of any good inks like the old gw ones?
