Wargames Illustrated Paints

I haven't picked up a brush and painted a figure for ages, in fact I have completely run out of the requisite 0 and 00 brushes, so I was interested to see this painting guide in WH Smiths today. I was sceptical at first, expecting it to be a re-hash of articles from past issues of the magazine, but it's actually pretty good and has some really useful ideas for painting horses, skin tones and base texturing, for example. It's not cheap at £5.95 but, if it gets me back in the zone for painting figures it will be money well spent.


  1. This has caught my eye too and I wondered the same, that it would just be a collection of article, but I'm heartened to hear that it isn't - I shall have to pick up a copy myself.

  2. I've also picked it up (yesterday) but haven't had time to study it.

    First glance say's it is worth the money.

    We are baby-sitting today and tomorrow, so maybe I'll have time for an in-depth browse on Tuesday.


  3. It does have material culled from past issues of the magazine, like the bit of painting flesh and the one on horses, but I'm pretty sure I haven't seen quite a bit of the content before. It's handy to have it all in one place anyway!
