Full contents:

AN INTRODUCTION AND THE BASICS

Introducing the main contributor to Wargames Illustrated Paints, Matt Parkes, along with his workspace and the tools that he uses for painting and modelling.

THE PLANNING AND THE PAINTS

You can’t talk painting without talking paints! As well as this key ingredient, in this section you will also be introduced to colour theory, harmony, context and reference material.

MASTERING THE BASIC TECHNIQUES

Highlighting, Drybrushing and Shading are some of the basic techniques you will need to master in order to get your models looking their best on the wargames table.

THREE STAGE PAINTING

This great ‘pot-to-pot’ technique will hold you in good stead for all your basic paintwork. It also serves as a springboard for more advanced brushwork.

PAINTING FACES AND SKIN

It’s time to focus on the focal point of most models – the face. In this section we also look at skin in general, including different tones and effects.

FABRIC AND CLOTHING

Here we take a look at painting clothes, large areas of cloth, different kinds of fabric and constructing patterns, including heraldry.

METALLICS

Most of us need to tackle the tricky subject of painting metallics on our figures at some point. In this section Matt shows us several different approaches, from basic to advanced.

PAINTING WOOD

Along with metal, wood is another regular feature of our miniatures. Dave Taylor shows us the subtle differences in painting, dark, stained, whitewashed and other ‘wooden’ styles.

BASING – GROUNDWORK

Along with faces, bases are another standout feature of wargames figures. Matt covers the subject in two parts. Here he introduces us to the basic ‘groundwork’.

BASING – THEMING

Having mastered the basing techniques in the previous section, we now move on to theming, using various battles from history to provide examples of different types of terrain.

PAINTING HORSES

Bays, chestnuts, blacks, Palominos… Dave Taylor, with the help of award winning rider and painter Christin Sciulli, show us how to approach painting different types and styles of horses.

SHIELDS, BANNERS AND DECALS

At some time we all have to tackle the tricky subject of painting shields and banners, or applying decals to the same.  We explore the subject here, with several easy to follow guides.

CONVERSIONS

Simple, and not so simple, conversions for those of us who like to tinker with our pewter or hack at our plastic figures
