  • How to create an earth base using Vallejo paste

    A nice, fast and easy way to create an earth base for your miniature using Vallejo paste.
    The Vallejo paste which I am using is a mixture of pumice stone and acrylic resin.
    The colors I used for this tutorial were calthan brown and bleached bone from Games Workshop.

  • Painting Faces
    by dpowell
    You can never have too many tutorials on how to paint faces, right? Well, hopefully because here's another one... This is my general approach to painting human faces. The main example is a 54mm figure but I use the same ideas on 28mm and 75 or 90mm figures. The difference with going up or down in scale is the level of detail we can reasonably expect to achieve. If you're painting a smaller figure don't worry about putting as much detail into the eyes. For the face focus on the main shapes/feat...

  • Painting a 54mm Historical Figure - Greek Hoplite
    by dpowell
    This article will cover the painting of a 54mm Greek Hoplite from Romeo Models. Iíll be working with acrylic paint, primarily Reaper Master Series (RMS) although I also use some Vallejo Model Air (VMA), GW, and Andrea as well. One thing that attracts me to figures from the ancient and medieval time periods is that they can work for both historical and fantasy painters. You can do you your research and be as historically accurate as possible or let your imagination run, pair a medieval knight with...

  • Ambush - Infamy diorama - SBS
    by Demonn
    As soon as the competition was announced and I read James' stipulations on winning the event, I started thinking about what to do. From Infamy range I had Holmes, Watson, Henrietta and Frank so I decided to use them all in a diorama. Knowing that Infamy is about to become a skirmish game, I also wanted to make my minis playable later on so I had to devise a way of inserting the minis into the diorama without it looking too obvious. When approaching such a project, I always start from a sketch, r...

  • Freehand Painting - Step by Step
    by dpowell
    One of the things I love to add to my figures is a design or pattern, something unique to make it stand out from the many other versions you may see around the web. This can take the form of a small detail like a line or pattern on a piece of clothing, an emblem on a shield or flag, or something much more complex. Painting designs on your figure can really be as simple or as complicated as you'd like. I recommend starting small with simple designs and then working your way up to more ...

  • Painting Skin Tones
    by dpowell
    Painting skin on your models can be tricky and, at times, quite frustrating. But once you get a handle on it, it's actually a lot of fun and gives you plenty of room to experiment. My goal in this tutorial is to share my general approach to painting skin and give you a number of mixes and corresponding figure examples. When it comes to paints there are a lot of good choices (GW, Vallejo, P3, etc). However for this tutorial I'm mostly using Reaper Master Series. I like these because (a)...
