Painting Miniature Military Figures

by Mike Davidson, Douglas Congdon-Martin
 
While it may seem easy to paint a three dimensional miniature figure, to do it properly requires a practiced hand and some artistic techniques. Because the figure is so small the shadings and highlights must be emphasized to make the figure seem realistic.

Mike Davidson has years of experience painting miniature military figures and in teaching the art to others.

Overview

While it may seem easy to paint a three dimensional miniature figure, to do it properly requires a practiced hand and some artistic techniques. Because the figure is so small the shadings and highlights must be emphasized to make the figure seem realistic.

Mike Davidson has years of experience painting miniature military figures and in teaching the art to others. Using a combination of hobby paints and oils he is able to create a visual effect that brings life to the cast or sculpted figures. In this book Mike takes a commercially produced casting and takes the reader through the process of assembly, painting and mounting, ending with a figure that would be a proud addition to any collection.

Each step is clearly photographed and captioned so that the reader may follow them. While applied to a particular figure, the lessons learned from this book will enhance any painting the reader may choose to do.
