    Wars & Warriors in Scale – The 19th Century
    Theme Collection Vol.10

    Preface

    This is the 10th “Theme Collections” title in our new and ongoing series that draws upon previously published articles from our Scale Model Handbook Special Editions Collection books where the content is dedicated to a specific category or period. In this latest edition we’ve gathered 12 themes on 19th Century conflicts, which have a popular following amongst the miniature figure modelling fraternity. The Napoleonic Wars stretched over the first 20 years of the 19th Century so most of the articles in this edition will present the colourful uniforms of that era. Future titles in this new series will offer carefully chosen articles, grouped together into specific themes.

    Our books are produced using a high-quality digital printing process giving excellent quality illustrations on 300g matt laminated velvet paper for the covers, with 150g velvet paper inside, all ‘perfect bound’ with a special glue!

    As always, thanks must go to all our contributors for their support and for sharing their secrets with us. Special thanks are due to Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Fernando Vallejo, Alessandro Balbo, Rolando Iezzi, Darren Parker-Mead, Man Jin Kim, Taesung Harmms, Andrew Cairns, Young B. Song, Dae-Hyeong Kim, Ju Won Jung, Paul Ondeck, Yannis Papadopoulos and our English Text Editor Ken Jones.

    We hope you’ll enjoy our latest edition!

    BACKCOVER TEXT
    The historic events of the 19th Century have fascinated people from childhood to adulthood, as the Napoleonic Wars took place and dominated the early years of the period. The advancing lines of the infantry facing continuous musket and cannon fire was really terrifying and unbelievable, considering the account of human casualties. The colourful uniforms worn during the period are really a challenge for every modeller and military artist and here you will find a lot of different types and colours.

    Within this ‘Theme Collection’ book you’ll find 12 articles by eight well-known artists who reveal their secrets for painting, sculpting and scenic creations, seven of which were originally made for Box Art Painting. All mediums are used here… Acrylics, enamels and oils, so whatever paint you prefer, you’ll find interesting ways and varied approaches to using it, and you’ll also learn a lot of new things, tips and techniques along the way.

    SCALE MODELLING MANUAL VOLUME 3

    This is the third Manual in our new series about Scale Modelling where our aim is to concentrate a lot of information about painting and general modelling techniques for all modellers at a competitive retail price.
    Each of our manuals covers a specific topic in detail, while offering lots of different approaches and techniques and, in most cases, written by one author. The content is carefully selected and presented so that readers should find something new to try and to add to their own techniques.
    Featured in each book are high quality photos and a detailed text that the reader can easily follow the progressive assembly steps and the painting sequence for each theme, which help to adopt these new modelling techniques and different approaches.
    In our previous editions the length of each theme was limited due to the number of pages taken for other content, but now there are no such limitations where everything is presented in a most detailed and explanatory way so there will be no omissions or unanswered questions.
    Depending on the theme and content, real painted colour chips of the hues and mixes will be added with information on how to use them.
    This series will feature various modelling aspects from Historic and Fantasy, Scale Models, Dioramas, Vignettes, Figures, Busts, Techniques and History.
    In this third issue Master Artist Christos Katselos explains in detail how he painted Journeyman Miniatures’ Female Morrigan figure. “The Morrigan, Goddess of War, Fate and Death” is a full figure that comes with a detail scenic base and a lot of extra accessories in 1/24th scale (75mm). As the figure is fantasy modellers can paint it using any colour palette they wish to.
    The artist used the airbrush for making a black and white sketch followed by paintbrushes to get the most from each tool. The 55 detailed step-by-step photographs with explanatory captions form the larger part of a total of 60 illustrations revealing all the secrets on how the flesh was painted with a cold hue, hair, clothes, ravens, stones, metals and all the details included in the kit. A total of 38 different acrylic paints were used; seven are liquid pigments and one metallic, from four acrylic series… Lifecolor, Vallejo Model Color, Scale75 and Kimera Kolors, with the real colour painted chips included at the end of the article. Also, he used two different primers to sketch; Badger for black and Lifecolor for white.
    We must thank the following for their help: Vallejo Acrylics (Alex Vallejo and Jaume Ortiz), Scale75 (Jose Mendez), Kimera Kolors (Luca Marchetti and Pietro Balloni), Lifecolors (Alessandro Balbo and Rolando Iezzi) and Yannis Papadopoulos.

    MANUAL DE MODELISMO A ESCALA VOLUMEN 3

    Este es el tercer manual de nuestra nueva serie sobre modelismo a escala, donde nuestro objetivo es concentrar una gran cantidad de información sobre pintura y técnicas generales de modelismo para todos los modelistas a un precio de venta competitivo.
    Cada uno de nuestros manuales cubre un tema específico en detalle, ofreciendo al mismo tiempo muchos enfoques y técnicas diferentes y, en la mayoría de los casos, escritos por un solo autor. El contenido está cuidadosamente seleccionado y presentado para que los lectores encuentren algo nuevo que probar y que añadir a sus propias técnicas.
    En cada libro hay fotos de gran calidad y un texto detallado que permite al lector seguir fácilmente los pasos progresivos de montaje y la secuencia de pintura de cada tema, lo que ayuda a adoptar estas nuevas técnicas de modelado y enfoques diferentes.
    En nuestras ediciones anteriores, la extensión de cada tema estaba limitada debido al número de páginas que se destinaban a otros contenidos, pero ahora no existen tales limitaciones y todo se presenta de la forma más detallada y explicativa para que no haya omisiones ni preguntas sin respuesta.
    Según el tema y el contenido, se añadirán fichas de colores reales pintados de los tonos y las mezclas con información sobre cómo utilizarlos.
    Esta serie presentará diversos aspectos del modelismo, desde el histórico y el fantástico, los modelos a escala, los dioramas, las viñetas, las figuras, los bustos, las técnicas y la historia.
    En este tercer número, el maestro Christos Katselos explica con detalle cómo pintó la figura femenina de la Morrigan de Journeyman Miniatures. “La Morrigan, Diosa de la Guerra, el Destino y la Muerte” es una figura completa que viene con una base escénica detallada y un montón de accesorios extra en escala 1/24 (75mm). Como la figura es de fantasía, los modelistas pueden pintarla con cualquier paleta de colores que deseen.
    El artista utilizó el aerógrafo para hacer un boceto en blanco y negro, seguido de pinceles para sacar el máximo partido a cada herramienta. Las 55 fotografías detalladas paso a paso con leyendas explicativas forman la mayor parte de un total de 60 ilustraciones que revelan todos los secretos sobre cómo se pintó la carne con un tono frío, el pelo, la ropa, los cuervos, las piedras, los metales y todos los detalles incluidos en el kit. Se utilizaron un total de 38 pinturas acrílicas diferentes; siete son pigmentos líquidos y una metálica, de cuatro series acrílicas… Lifecolor, Vallejo Model Color, Scale75 y Kimera Kolors, con las fichas de colores reales pintadas incluidas al final del artículo. Además, utilizó dos imprimaciones diferentes para esbozar; Badger para el negro y Lifecolor para el blanco.
    Debemos agradecer la ayuda de las siguientes personas Vallejo Acrylics (Alex Vallejo y Jaume Ortiz), Scale75 (José Méndez), Kimera Kolors (Luca Marchetti y Pietro Balloni), Lifecolors (Alessandro Balbo y Rolando Iezzi) y Yannis Papadopoulos.

    This new collection that begins with this volume depicts a new challenge for all of us and means a new step forward in order to make this hobby more popular and accessible.

    Some modelers have dared to try new techniques and have managed to influence others with their efforts, gaining admiration evermore thanks to the various publications, not to mention exposure over the last few years in new types of communication and social media.

    “I have chosen this book “With or Without” because it is a synthesis of modeling both for pleasure and for work.

    Differentiation and the desire to go further, makes it possible that, instead of being stuck at one point, we continue to evolve.

    The title itself seemed original to us, like that U2 song that we all know, and it identifies perfectly the content of the modeling part of the book”. (Rick Lawler).

    He elegido este libro “ Con o sin” porque es una síntesis del modelismo tanto por placer como por trabajo.

    La diferenciación y las ganas de ir más allá, hace posible que, en lugar de quedarnos estancados en un punto, sigamos evolucionando.

    ENGLISH

    Scale Modelling Manual Volume 2

    This is the second Manual in our new series about Scale Modelling where our aim is to concentrate between two covers a lot of information about painting and general modelling techniques for all modellers at a competitive retail price.
    Each manual will cover a specific topic in detail, while offering a lot of different approaches and techniques and, in most cases, written by one author. The contents will be carefully selected and presented in a way that every reader should find something new to try and to adapt to their own methods.
    High quality photos and a detailed text will feature in each book so the reader can easily follow the progress of the assembly and painting of each theme, and help to adopt new modelling techniques and different approaches.
    In our previous editions the length of each theme was limited due to the number of pages taken for other content, but here there are no such limitations. Each theme will be presented in a most detailed and explanatory way so there will be no omissions or unanswered questions.
    Depending on the theme and content, real painted colour chips of the hues and mixes will be added with information on how to use them.
    In this series we will include various modelling aspects from Historic and Fantasy, Scale Models, Dioramas, Vignettes, Figures, Busts, Techniques and History You Can Model.

    In this second issue Master Artist Ernesto Reyes Stalhuth explains in detail how he painted the Airborne Miniatures Bust (ref: 908) of a 1/9th scale US Army Helicopter Crewman wearing ACU modern camouflage pattern, known to most of us as “Digital Camouflage”. The bust can also be painted with Multicam camouflage, or both Multicam Uniform and ACU equipment. The same goes for the helmet, which can be painted dark grey (almost black) or light grey. Gloves should be green.

    The artist used a combination of airbrush and paintbrush to get the most of each tool. The 55 detailed Step-By-Step photographs with explanatory captions in a total of 60 illustrations revealed all the secrets on how he painted the flesh and helmet (20 photos) and the ACU camouflage and equipment (35 photos) so to get such a realistic result. The artist used a total of 51 acrylic paints (four of them metallic) and four acrylic inks with the real colour painted chips included at the end of the article.

    Manual de modelismo a escala Volumen 2

    Este es el segundo manual de nuestra nueva serie sobre modelismo a escala, en la que nuestro objetivo es concentrar entre dos cubiertas una gran cantidad de información sobre pintura y técnicas generales de modelismo para todos los modelistas a un precio de venta competitivo.
    Cada manual cubrirá un tema específico en detalle, ofreciendo al mismo tiempo una gran cantidad de enfoques y técnicas diferentes y, en la mayoría de los casos, escritos por un solo autor. Los contenidos se seleccionarán cuidadosamente y se presentarán de forma que cada lector pueda encontrar algo nuevo que probar y adaptar a sus propios métodos.
    En cada libro habrá fotos de alta calidad y un texto detallado para que el lector pueda seguir fácilmente el progreso del montaje y la pintura de cada tema, y para que pueda adoptar nuevas técnicas de modelado y enfoques diferentes.
    En nuestras ediciones anteriores, la longitud de cada tema estaba limitada por el número de páginas que se destinaban a otros contenidos, pero aquí no hay tales limitaciones. Cada tema se presentará de la forma más detallada y explicativa posible para que no haya omisiones ni preguntas sin respuesta.
    Dependiendo del tema y del contenido, se añadirán fichas de colores reales pintados de las tonalidades y mezclas con información sobre cómo utilizarlas.
    En esta serie incluiremos varios aspectos de modelismo desde Histórico y Fantasía, Modelos a Escala, Dioramas, Viñetas, Figuras, Bustos, Técnicas e Historia que puedes modelar.

    En este segundo número el Maestro Ernesto Reyes Stalhuth nos explica con detalle cómo pintó el Busto de Airborne Miniatures (ref: 908) de un Tripulante de Helicóptero del Ejército de los Estados Unidos a escala 1/9 que lleva el moderno patrón de camuflaje ACU, conocido por la mayoría de nosotros como “Camuflaje Digital”. El busto también puede ser pintado con camuflaje Multicam, o tanto con uniforme Multicam como con equipo ACU. Lo mismo ocurre con el casco, que puede pintarse de gris oscuro (casi negro) o de gris claro. Los guantes deben ser verdes.

    El artista utilizó una combinación de aerógrafo y pincel para sacar el máximo partido a cada herramienta. Las 55 fotografías detalladas paso a paso con leyendas explicativas en un total de 60 ilustraciones revelan todos los secretos sobre cómo pintó la carne y el casco (20 fotos) y el camuflaje y el equipo de la ACU (35 fotos) para obtener un resultado tan realista. El artista utilizó un total de 51 pinturas acrílicas (cuatro de ellas metálicas) y cuatro tintas acrílicas, con los chips de colores reales pintados incluidos al final del artículo. Una guía rápida sobre cómo aerografiar acrílicos utilizando un aerógrafo de doble acción y un compresor de flujo de aire constante concluye el contenido del manual. Lee los problemas más comunes a los que nos enfrentamos al aerografiar acrílicos de base acuosa y cómo solucionarlos fácilmente.

    Debemos agradecer a los siguientes: AK-Interactive (Fernando Vallejo), Andrea Miniatures (Alexandra Fernández), Vallejo Acrylics (Alex Vallejo), Scale75 (José Méndez), Kimera Colors (Luca Marchetti y Pietro Balloni), Lifecolors (Alessandro Balbo y Rolando Iezzi), Yannis Papadopoulos y por último, pero no menos importante, a nuestro editor de textos en inglés Ken Jones.
    Hay que agradecer especialmente a Jaume Ortiz (Director de Marketing de Vallejo) que nos ha proporcionado todas las pinturas Vallejo necesarias para que este libro pudiera publicarse.

    PAINTING GUIDE VOL.2

    ABOUT THIS GUIDE

    Sang-Eon Lee used Vallejo Model Color acrylics for painting Johannes Erwin Eugen Rommel “The Desert Fox” bust (LM-BS002) from Life Miniatures. Inside you’ll discover how he painted a realistic looking head with acrylics using the artist’s Planar Face Painting System… Or “painting by numbers” if that’s a more familiar term to you, and a realistic WWII Uniform in exquisite detail. The innovation here is that every possible effort has been made to include the paints of many of the companies producing acrylic colours especially for brush painting miniatures. Herein we have the exact matches of equivalent (or similar) colours, or the Editor’s suggestions for approximate colours, hues and mixes, to achieve the same excellent results as the Artist.

    We have used and tested the 10 series of paints of participating companies AK-Interactive (3rd Generation and Old Figure Series), Andrea Miniatures, Vallejo Acrylics (Model Color and Panzer Aces), Scale75 (Scalecolor, Warfront and Artist), Jo Sonja, Kimera Kolors and Lifecolor.

    SCALE MODELLING MANUAL VOLUME 1

    This is the first Manual in our new series about Scale Modelling where our aim is to bring a lot of concentrated information about painting and general modelling techniques for all modellers at a competitive retail price.

    Each manual will deal with a specific topic in detail, offering a lot of different approaches and techniques and in most cases written by one author. The contents will be carefully selected and presented in a way that every reader should find something new to try and to adapt to their own methods. Each book will have high quality photos and a detailed text so the reader will easily follow the progress of the assembly and painting of each theme, to help adopt new modelling techniques and different approaches.

    In our other editions the length of each theme was limited due to the number of pages taken for other contents, but here there are no such limitations. Each theme will be presented in a most detailed and explanatory way so there will be no omissions or unanswered questions.

    Depending on the themes and contents, real painted colour chips of hues and mixes will be added with information on how to use them. In this series we will include various modelling aspects from Historic and Fantasy, Scale Models, Dioramas, Vignettes, Figures, Busts, Techniques and History You Can Model.

    In this first issue we’ll cover a part of the Deutsches Afrika Korps Forces in Scale by presenting Lieven Terryn’s ‘Siege of Tobruk 1941’ Super Diorama, a Detailed Figure Painting with oils of an Alpine Miniatures Leutnant of the 8th Panzer Regiment in Libya 1941 and an article by Mr Black’s Team on Acrylic Relevant Colour Sets for DAK Uniforms and How to Use Them.

    We must thank the following: AK-Interactive (Fernando Vallejo), Andrea Miniatures (Alexandra Fernandez), Vallejo Acrylics (Alex Vallejo), Scale75 (Jose Mendez), Kimera Colors (Luca Marchetti & Pietro Balloni), Lifecolors (Alessandro Balbo & Rolando Iezzi), Yannis Papadopoulos and last, but not least, our English Text Editor Ken Jones.

    Special thanks must go to Lieven Terryn who provided us with all the necessary material so this first book could be released as a printed work.

    HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

    On 11th April 1941 German and Italian troops surrounded the port of Tobruk, a Libyan city on the eastern Mediterranean coast near the border with Egypt, and placed the British and Commonwealth troops occupying it under siege. Only a few months earlier in February, Generalleutnant Rommel had arrived in Tripoli with the first units of the Deutsche Afrika Korps and launched an offensive into Cyrenaica, Libya, which the British had taken from the Italians at the beginning of the war in North Africa. Soon Rommel launched his first assault to capture the port. German troops managed to breach the Tobruk perimeter on 13th April, but after this initial success they were beaten back by the British garrison with considerable losses. On the evening of 30th April, a second major attack was launched by Axis troops assisted by 70 tanks. They managed to breach the perimeter a second time, but once again the attack failed with the loss of over 1,000 men. Over the next few months the British went back onto the offensive launching several operations and eight months later the siege was finally lifted and Tobruk was liberated on 10th December 1941.

    ANTECEDENTES HISTÓRICOS

    El 11 de abril de 1941, las tropas alemanas e italianas rodearon el puerto de Tobruk, una ciudad libia situada en la costa oriental del Mediterráneo, cerca de la frontera con Egipto, y pusieron en estado de sitio a las tropas británicas y de la Commonwealth que la ocupaban. Sólo unos meses antes, en febrero, el Generalleutnant Rommel había llegado a Trípoli con las primeras unidades del Deutsche Afrika Korps y lanzó una ofensiva en Cirenaica, Libia, que los británicos habían arrebatado a los italianos al principio de la guerra en el norte de África. Pronto Rommel lanzó su primer asalto para capturar el puerto. Las tropas alemanas consiguieron abrir una brecha en el perímetro de Tobruk el 13 de abril, pero tras este éxito inicial fueron rechazadas por la guarnición británica con considerables pérdidas. En la noche del 30 de abril, las tropas del Eje lanzaron un segundo gran ataque con la ayuda de 70 tanques. Consiguieron romper el perímetro por segunda vez, pero una vez más el ataque fracasó con la pérdida de más de 1.000 hombres. Durante los meses siguientes, los británicos volvieron a la ofensiva lanzando varias operaciones y, ocho meses más tarde, el asedio fue finalmente levantado y Tobruk fue liberada el 10 de diciembre de 1941.

    THEME COLLECTION VOLUME 9

    Painting Busts From Diverse Periods Of History Using Different Mediums…

    Brand New Content – Eight Articles Published For The First Time!

    Preface
    This is the ninth title in our ongoing “Theme Collections” series, but it’s a title with a difference in that it features all new articles, published for the first time and all dedicated to painting busts. In this latest edition we’ve gathered together eight busts as subjects from various periods of history – Ancient and Medieval Times, The French Revolution and World War Two and all are painted by talented Master Artists.

    The first article is a Medieval Crossbowman by Sergey Popovichenko who explains in detail how to begin working with miniature busts. Sergey offers 57 photos to cover the necessary information that modellers of all skill levels can follow to produce a successful result. He also shows how to accomplish the best possible end result following his step-by-step painting sequences of mixed media techniques with acrylics and oils.

    The second feature is by well-known master artist James Rice and dedicated to a bust of the French Revolution period where he explains how to adopt the Verdaccio undercoat technique specifically to busts. There are 39 photos illustrating this feature, which are more than enough and where everyone can follow James’ step-by-step painting techniques using acrylics and oils.

    Louis D’ Orio a master of oil painting miniatures returns with a dual bust painting feature from Ancient times using his method of oil painting techniques. A detailed text accompanies the excellent quality photos of Dienekes and Hydarnes.

    Joachim Peiper, a German SS officer from WW2 is next, painted by the well-known master artist Christos Katselos. Christos gives some in-depth information for eyes and face painting with more than 20 step-by-step photos. All areas of the bust have detailed paint mixes and details on how to apply them.

    Ernesto Reyes Stalhuth, another of our regular contributors, offers two WW2 subjects; RAF Bomber Command aircrew and a German Fallschirmjäger Feldgendarmerie with his master class method of painting. He explains everything in his detailed text and all the painting mixes are included so readers can easily paint their own versions.

    The seventh article is a Soviet RKKA Scout painted by Toshihiro Sano using Tamiya Enamels. This four-page article is an excellent reference for painting the Soviet Leaf Pattern camouflage.

    Well-known master artist Eduardo Fernandez Rodriguez contributes an eight-page article on painting a Soviet Partisan bust. He explains how to paint flesh, leather, fur skin, wood, metals and much more with acrylics.

    As always, thanks must go to all our contributors for their support and for sharing their secrets with us. Special thanks are also due to Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Darren Parker-Mead, Man Jin Kim, Fernando Vallejo, Taesung Harmms, Young B. Song, Dae-Hyeong Kim, Ju Won Jung, Paul Ondeck, Alessandro Balbo, Rolando Lezzi, Yannis Papadopoulos and finally to Ken Jones our English Text Editor.

    Back Cover

    Traditional busts (we now call V busts) first appeared in kit form on the commercial model market around 40 years ago. We can say that Verlinden and Young Miniatures were the easiest to find in shops and shows back then, but very soon a lot of other companies added this category to their ranges. At first these miniature busts, were not so popular as most modellers preferred full body scale figures. Gradually, however, the sculpting and casting quality improved and busts attracted more fans, and nowadays the genre has numerous followers all over the world.

    Miniature busts and half-figures produced in various scales allowed sculptors, and subsequently figure painters, to concentrate on detailing the face, transferring facial expressions and character, and adding personality. The larger scales, usually 1:9 or 1:10, also allowed for some impressive and exquisite detailing on the figure and accessories… For example, an ornate helmet could be given far more detailing and the benefits of added fittings that would not be possible on smaller scale miniatures.

    Making your bust painting a success story will make any other miniature figure painting easier. Study the work of some of the best master artists in the world herein, where with the help of 170 photos you’ll improve your next painted work and progress to achieve the highest standards possible.

    WWII SPECIAL VOL.5 SUMMARY

    SCULPTING & PAINTING YOUR OWN WWII GERMAN MINIATURE FIGURES IN 1/35 & 1/16 SCALES – CREATING YOUR SCENIC SETTINGS FROM SCRATCH

    THE MINIATURE FIGURE ART OF LUC KLINKERS

    Welcome to the latest WWII Special, Vol.5 in the Scale Model Handbook Series from Mr Black Publications’ Editions. This is our 42st book by the well-known Netherlands’ artist Luc Klinkers who shows “how to” sculpt and paint WWII period miniature figures in German uniforms, placing them in realistic scenic settings, made from scratch and providing the ultimate techniques guide.

    Luc steers you through the miniaturists’ magical world using detailed text with a lot of step-by-step photos so you can easily follow his approach and learn how to sculpt your own WWII German miniature figures in 1/35 and 1/16 scales, displaying them on scratch built scenery.

    Inside are 250 photos, around 200 of them combined into step-by-step sequences. The book is divided into five chapters following a progressively advanced sequence from A to Z on how to sculpt your own miniatures. Luc reveals all his secrets and techniques gathered over his 20 years experience in the military modelling hobby where he’s sculpted more than 200 figures.

    The first chapter is dedicated to tools, materials and other materials needed to sculpt your own miniature figures. The second covers creating a 1/35 scale three-figure vignette totally from scratch. The author uses heads, hands, boots, weapons and accessories from commercially available products combining them to create his personalised realistically posed figures. Luc makes it look easy and encourages you to try his methods.

    The third chapter is about sculpting and painting a German SS Grenadier at the Falaise Pocket 1944 in 1/16 scale, whereas the fourth chapter covers the creation of a 1/16 scale three-figure “action vignette” from scratch. The fifth and the final chapter presents a gallery of masterly sculpted figures that have been created over the past 20 years that were placed onto AFVs, in city or country themes, or just in small display bases.

    So what would you expect from this book? I must admit that I first met Luc on Facebook one day when some photos of his latest work appeared in front of me. I was really impressed! Not only from the results he achieved, but also from the time he took from start to finish. An amazing combination! Yes, he uses commercially available heads, hands, boots, weapons, gear, etc., when they fit into his projects to create shortcuts. However, I think the final results are awesome, considering the time dedicated to sculpting your own 1/35 scale heads, hands, weapons, etc., is very time consuming with underlying uncertainties for the amateur. Also, the larger 1/16 scale needs a lot of attention to detail and abilities usually displayed by professionals.

    Luc explains how to sculpt your own miniature figures using regular tools and materials, combing your creativity and readily available commercial accessories, so each figure will have your own signature upon it. We often hear that with just replacing a figure’s head we can give it a different personality and progress to adding some character to your scenic base.

    Study this book carefully and get out your old figures and spares box that’s been sitting there for years. Start with small alterations and then go further to producing conversions and scratch builds. You will be amazed how good you will feel when you put your own stamp on your sculpted and transformed figures!

    A big thank you must go to this great miniaturist Luc Klinkers for giving us the opportunity to publish his work and share his secrets with us. Special thanks are due to Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Fernando Vallejo, Taesung Harmms, Young B. Song, Paul Ondeck, Alessandro Balbo, Ronaldo Iezzi, Yannis Papadopoulos and last, but not least, our English Text Editor Ken Jones.

    We hope you enjoy our latest edition!

  • Scale Model Handbook: How To Guides Vol.1 Techniques for Modelling Female Miniatures

    MRB SMH-HTG01

    24,95

    The Publisher’s Introduction To “How To Guides” Volume 1

     

    At Mr Black Publications we’ve recently completed the first in a new series of “How to Guides” resulting in this first volume… It’s the 41st Scale Model Handbook we’ve published to date.

    We’re very excited about this new series of books, which will cover the many techniques need to make better models! We’ll cover a lot of the popular subjects in this great hobby of scale modelling, and this first volume by Christos Katselos shows how to paint female miniature figures and busts, revealing all his secrets on how he paints female miniature figures. There are 11 chapters in this book where you’ll find all the necessary information for the preparation, assembly and painting of female figures, using the latest techniques and tools. The book offers nine themes; five in great detail with a lot of step-by-step pictures over eight pages, plus the introduction, preparation and assembly, aimed specifically at newcomers.

    All of the painting was done using acrylic paints from the well-known Spanish company, Vallejo Acrylics. Christos used about 65 different colours – 54 “Model Color”, seven “Panzer Aces”, one “Model Air”, three “Game Color” and one “Metal Color” to add a variety of colours for painting and to lessen any repetition.

    The first 52 pages are devoted to a lot of step-by-step projects with around 195 illustrations enabling the reader to easily understand and follow the sequences. The remainder of the book has another four articles with more photos of finished models with the necessary descriptive texts.

    A big thank you must go to Christos Katselos, a great artist, for giving us the opportunity to publish his work and share his secrets. Special thanks are also due, in no particular order, to Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Darren Parker-Mead, Man Jin Kim, Alexey Lucanev, Fernando Vallejo, Taesung Harmms, Andrew Cairns, Young B.
