This is the fourth edition in the Scale Model Handbook series, dedicated once again to modelling miniature figures. The book was published onschedule, three months after the third edition. ‘Figure Modelling 4’, like the other three editions, covers a variety of themes andhistorical periods. The contents include seven unique themes that have been presented in a detailed way.
Herein, you’ll find how to paint commercial miniature figures using acrylics, oils or enamels, make groundwork and scenery for presentation. Everything is contributed by well-known miniaturists that we are sure will inspire you and, we hope, keep you occupied for many hours.
In this book we’ve introduced a fantasy article based on a bust made by Riga Model some time ago, which unfortunately is now unavailable, as the company ceased production and closed down. Despite this we took the decision to include this unique article by Aleksander Michelotti, as it explains a lot about constructing and painting techniques that otherwise we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to enjoy. In most cases these techniques can be used for historical figures as well as fantasy. I’m sure that most of you will agree with me, but please let me know by e-mail to your opinions, which are very important to me. The feedback will help us improve our product so that we have more satisfied readers.
