KEYNOTE Full-colour reference guide for painting exceptional fantasy figures The new trends in the world of figure painting mean that fantasy figures are becoming more and more important in the preferences of the general public. Role-playing games use metal and plastic pieces to make up armies that the enthusiast has to paint and is becoming ever more demanding with respect to the quality of the final results. In addition to this type of games, the market has been invaded by dragons, orcs, goblins, elves, dwarves and a long list of imaginary creatures that delight the youngest fans and newcomers to this trend as a change from military figures and without abandoning the military sector, they decide to paint some of these figures as an experiment or as a means of refreshing the mind.This type of miniatures is flexible in terms of the pictorial techniques employed. Not having to follow a set pattern, apart from the limits of the painter's own imagination, is a great advantage as it inspires a highly creative work. However, every painter needs some techniques to start from. This book, throughout its 62 pages, shows the steps required in order to obtain adequate results by employing basic painting techniques and how to create special effects with the use of advanced techniques that will make the figures more attractive and help to set them in a specific scene. One clear example of this is the sorcerer figure with the lights from above and below, as if it were illuminated by volcano lava. Due to its content, this publication is essential, not only for fantasy fans, but also for historical figure painters. Really amazing techniques are outlined in the book that can be applied to any type of figure. REVIEWS: With excellent photos and quick tips, I really commend the Andrea Press writers and editors for making a reasonably priced introduction to fantasy miniatures. Recommended to all miniature builders and a must for those (like me) in love with fantasy characters. - D Morrisette - IPMS ILLUSTRATIONS colour throughout
