It is a comprehensive guide to painting your own wonderful looking miniature almost like those you see behind display glass or in magazine battle reports. The ones that had me convinced there was a better way to paint than my own self taught approach. And Javier Gomez shows you how!
The author details different methods (and combinations of methods) to use at all stages of the painting process from undercoating a new model fresh off the sprue to varnishing a completely painted model and everything in between. Using quality photographs, and step by step instructions this guide shows you how to paint like the experts.
Being a largely independent work, this book is not tied down to any one brand of paints (though the author has a personal preference) and the colour charts with each walkthrough need only a little imagination (and your mixing palette) to match to your own paints.
The book is also filled with little asides and tips that add another pleasure to reading it. For instance, why plastic instead of ceramic for mixing palettes or why round brushes instead of flat for certain jobs.
This book does not tell you how to paint a particular company's models, but instead how to paint any of them. I can see this being my new constant companion at my hobby station with regular re-reads of specific chapters before particular painting sessions.
Very top drawer.
Short sections on 15/18mm and shorter on 6/10mm.
Nothing on painting tanks or other machines, very much figure focussed.
I found the horses section very useful
I found it added to the ideas from the Foundry Miniatures guide, although a lot of similar guide information is available on the Internet but a useful source and guide book.
Oh boy! This was an eye opener! To have such clear informative information first hand that you can keep and refer to whilst painting is invaluable!
The guides show everything for faces to bases!
Great great wargaming book on painting miniatures! Highly recommend!
I’ve even gone and found other great resources from this also! Books are the future haha
painting horses section helpful to me especially recommended Vallejo colours
