Kevin Dallimore and over 25 other renowned and respected painters and modellers reveal the techniques they use to give their miniatures and models that great professional finish; techniques such as varnishing, dry brushing, non metallic metal, shading, highlighting, blending, textured leather and the use of diluted washes are all discussed in depth together with many modelling ideas too; ideas for doing conversions, creating dioramas, making and painting scenery, vehicles and many more. All of the processes described in the many different articles are fully detailed and coupled with photographs of each important stage. Initially, Kevin goes quickly through the all important basics (fully described in his first book Kevin Dallimore's Painting and Modelling Guide) before clearly detailing all of the advanced techniques that he and his fellow painters use to produce great looking models. There then follow many articles where guest painters and modellers share their thoughts and ideas on particular techniques when painting historical, fantasy and sci-fi models: Old West, Napoleonic, Ancients, Romans, Swashbucklers, World War II, Goblins, Orcs, Beastmen, Trolls, Judge Dredd and lots more. By copying the methods and techniques in this book and with a little determination and practice, everyone will be able to produce painted miniatures and models to a standard that previously they had only dreamed of.
