AN INTRODUCTION AND THE BASICS
Introducing the main contributor to Wargames Illustrated Paints, Matt Parkes, along with his workspace and the tools that he uses for painting and modelling.

THE PLANNING AND THE PAINTS
You can’t talk painting without talking paints! As well as this key ingredient, in this section you will also be introduced to colour theory, harmony, context and reference material.

MASTERING THE BASIC TECHNIQUES
Highlighting, Drybrushing and Shading are some of the basic techniques you will need to master in order to get your models looking their best on the wargames table.

THREE STAGE PAINTING
This great ‘pot-to-pot’ technique will hold you in good stead for all your basic paintwork. It also serves as a springboard for more advanced brushwork.

PAINTING FACES AND SKIN
It’s time to focus on the focal point of most models – the face. In this section we also look at skin in general, including different tones and effects.

FABRIC AND CLOTHING
Here we take a look at painting clothes, large areas of cloth, different kinds of fabric and constructing patterns, including heraldry.

METALLICS
Most of us need to tackle the tricky subject of painting metallics on our figures at some point. In this section Matt shows us several different approaches, from basic to advanced.

PAINTING WOOD
Along with metal, wood is another regular feature of our miniatures. Dave Taylor shows us the subtle differences in painting, dark, stained, whitewashed and other ‘wooden’ styles.

BASING – GROUNDWORK
Along with faces, bases are another standout feature of wargames figures. Matt covers the subject in two parts. Here he introduces us to the basic ‘groundwork’.

BASING – THEMING
Having mastered the basing techniques in the previous section, we now move on to theming, using various battles from history to provide examples of different types of terrain.

PAINTING HORSES
Bays, chestnuts, blacks, Palominos… Dave Taylor, with the help of award winning rider and painter Christin Sciulli, show us how to approach painting different types and styles of horses.

SHIELDS, BANNERS AND DECALS
At some time we all have to tackle the tricky subject of painting shields and banners, or applying decals to the same.  We explore the subject here, with several easy to follow guides.

CONVERSIONS
Simple, and not so simple, conversions for those of us who like to tinker with our pewter or hack at our plastic figures
