Brilliant, easy to use and a must for any modellers library.
The step by step guides are clear and concise. If you are a gamer and paintings not your favorite thing, then this book is a must have! Even experienced painters can take something from this book, the 3 stage system is easily adaptable to individual painting styles.
I have always wanted to 25/28mm myself. However I never had the confidence mainly because I wasn't sure of the techniques to use.
After reading the book so much has become clear, it is like somebody switching on the light bulb!!
My enthusiasm has been rekindled and I have the confidence to embark on painting 28mm armies.
The book is very easy to follow and understand, simply it is the best book on painting techniques that I have read. I am sure it will inspire many wargamers etc, young and old to paint, repaint their armies.
I have read through 75% of the book and am totally exhausted since there is just so much in here. I am not overly keen on the cartoon like style the black undercoating gives, but I can see how this can really speed up the painting.
Likewise, the miniatures still look fantastic (way better than my own) and I am excited to put the painting style into practice and try out the techniques given. It will definitely be an improvement and who knows it may grow on me.
There is also a wealth of tips hidden in smaller section of the book like how to paint tartans, horses and fire. plus plus plus...
This book will keep a beginner like me busy for a really long time.
The pictures are really good and although the lessons are repetitive, I actually like this as I am still trying to absorb everything and I am sure that I will appreciate it when I go back to reference a specific section.
Great value for the quality of the book and information inside.
