Among the tutorials covered in this book are face painting, creating complex camouflage patterns, weathering clothing, and figure conversion techniques, as well as vignette and diorama settings for your figures (creating groundwork and balancing composition). The projects featured range from single-figure studies to full-scale dioramas covering all the major periods and theatres of the war.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are looking for [a book] with full color photos describing construction and the painting process, [this book] is exactly what you need... Full color photographs detailing each part of the particular process and finished figures. There are no black and white photos to be found... [Comes] with an extensive reference and bibliography for those who wish to learn more. For wargamers who like their Osprey books full of pictures and easy to understand 'how to' instructions, the Modelling Series may have exactly the books you need!" -HMG Reviewing Stand

"Akin to Fallschirm tour guide, this book takes us to each theater and era of the Fallschirmjager, reflecting their fortunes as the war turned against Germany... Messer's Forns and Romero have presented a highly useful, informative and inspirational volume for figure modelers of Fallschirmjager, indeed useful for any figure subject. Highly recommended." -Fred Boucher, Aeroscale
