A wide array of fantasy miniatures is available to wargamers and modellers, manufactured from an increasing number of different materials each with their own unique modelling challenges. From the multipart hard plastic 28mm miniature to the metal and resin models common in all other scales, Modelling and Painting Fantasy Figures provides wargamers with a wealth of information to achieve the best results. Whether modelling single figures, a handful of warriors for a warband or tackling a huge army for a mass battle game, there is something for every fantasy figure modeller, collector or gamer. This new book also discusses issues of scale with fantasy miniatures and demonstrates a variety of modelling and painting techniques at different scales. It provides step-by-step guidance on building, converting, repairing and painting figures and covers working with plastic, resin and white metal. Finally, it considers basic techniques and maintaining the compatibility of miniatures between different gaming systems.
