by Bryan Ansell,Kevin Dallimore


In this book, Dallimore takes you step by step through his method of painting and eases you into the job in distinct steps. The Foundry technique is a very straightforward style for creating great miniatures: basically it relies on 1 to 3 layers of color + sharp black lines for definition.

In this book, Dallimore takes you step by step through his method of painting and eases you into the job in distinct steps. For general figure painting, he presents variations on his method that he calls one color, two color and three color. The number of colors refers to the number of highlight shades used plus the base coat color. For each stage he paints a figure (same figure for all three stages so you can easily see the differences) and provides step by step "in progress" photos. The black lining actually gives the dramatic results.

Are you or do you know someone who paints miniatures for gaming?
Then this is the book for you.
You get step by step directions and he shows you how to paint basic / fast to super detailed but slower.
Basing directions, flesh painting, great color photos and of course a focus on Wargames Foundry figures and paints.
Also, shows how to paint buildings.
No terrain examples or directions.
I love the Foundry paint system, even if you use Vallejo or similar paint, this book will be very helpful.

The "Dallimore method" is easily recognized by most gamers who have a few miles on them. Not everyone loves the style (I do) but no one can deny it's distinctive look.

In this book, Dallimore takes you step by step through his method of painting and eases you into the job in distinct steps. For general figure painting, he presents variations on his method that he calls one color, two color and three color. The number of colors refers to the number of highlight shades used plus the base coat color. For each stage he paints a figure (same figure for all three stages so you can easily see the differences) and provides step by step "in progress" photos. I found this to be a huge help.

Additionally, the book delves into different ways of prepping your figures for painting, varnishing, figure conversions and some ideas about how to handle particularly difficult painting challenges. Highland plaids for example or how to paint realistic looking fire. There is also a short section of tips on how to take flattering photographs of your figures.

If you never progress past the one color method your models will still look better than much of what you will see on the average wargames table. If you advance to the 2 color method for the bulk of your army and utilize the 3 color style for commanders and special figures, you'll earn the envy of your fellow gamers.

It's a very good book, although perhaps not for everyone.

The author describes his own style of painting miniatures - mostly historical ones in 25-28mm scale. The reader is gradually introduced to 3 main variations of this style - from the easiest to the most advanced. These variations simply differ in number of highlight shades used for each color. Each variation is described and illustrated step-by-step, and on several minis - great idea IMO. Pictures of miniatures are large and clear and the text descriptive. At the end of each step-by-step, the same figure is often shown painted in different colors - very nice touch. Other topics discussed include horses, animal skins, basing, terrain modeling, converting minis, etc. The book is profusely illustrated, and in full color throughout.

The book references mostly Foundry acrylic paints, which the author helped create to support his style of painting. All the colors from this range are shown in appendix, with samples of each color printed. Foundry paints are organized in sets of three related colors (highlight, midtone, shade) - approach which is very friendly to a beginner. The same system is mimicked by an American company Reaper in their triads. But apart from having to mix colors, the system itself can be adapted for use with any brand of acrylics.

The author's style involves using black undercoat and painting with bright colors while leaving thin lines of the black showing in recesses between colors. This creates stark contrast and minis painted this way have colorful, eye-popping look when viewed with a naked eye. Magnifying glass is less kind to them, although this may ba a small price to pay - I don't know.

Overall it's a great book - one that sets out to teach and does it well. One approach to painting minis is thoroughly described and very well illustrated. The book covers varied subjects from different eras and it's easy to find an example for just about anything one can find on a historical mini.

My problem with the book: I personally am really not enamored with the painting style. It's just too cartoonish for my taste. But I still think the book is worthwile to someone new to painting minis or painting in such small scale. I certainly enjoyed it.

If you have never painted a miniature before _and_ are particularly interested in historical figures, this is the book for you. The Foundry technique is a very straightforward style for creating great miniatures: basically it relies on 1 to 3 layers of color + sharp black lines for definition. The black lining actually gives the dramatic results.

If you are interested in painting fantasy or scifi miniatures, the technique will definitely work but is fairly different from current styles as it makes little to no use of washes or glazes. Having no access to Foundry paints, I'm trying it with other brands (GW, Vallejo).

The book itself is of excellent production quality; the images are clear and rich in detail, the writing well done (I saw one typo in the entire book) and the examples helpful. It's a pleasure to read and browse through.

My criticisms of the book center mostly around a few secondary areas: brush maintenance, basing and terrain construction. The book doesn't discuss how to condition brush hairs, and I dislike the Foundry basing style as being too drab. Terrain construction is simply too complex of a topic to tack on and belongs in a different book.

I think the syatem of painting given in the book is a great one for 25mm wargaming figures. You could use it for smaller scales, but it is probably overkill (I use an easier paint and wash method that gives great results for 15mm, 6mm figures do not even require a wash). For larger figures or ones intended for display, I would be VERY dissapointed with the results (you will need to use some type of blending method). If you are looking to do 25mm for wargames, this method really does work and the book is excellent at telling you how! Highly recommended.
