Although obviously targeted at the historical figure modeller/painter, I look forward to reading it and adding it to my collection of modelling and figure painting books.
For a simple booklet published in 1977 it would be reasonable to expect that there would be little of interest or use to me. How wrong could I be!
I found some of the notes on Henri's home-brew paint mixes quite enlightening and although I am not sure if I will use them on Wargame Figures, I am certain they will be used on my 40mm and larger figures. In fact if it was not for the fact that my workbench is so full of on-going projects I am sure that I would be starting another display figure just to try out the techniques described.
Henri also uses sawdust for adding texture to helmet plumes and in building up his groundwork or bases. I realise that I have access to both fine and coarse sawdust through my work and will be experimenting with this waste product once I have picked up a sample.
All in all a fine little book and one that I am sure will be referred to on a regular basis.
