Reviews - What do customers think about FOUNDRY MINIATURES PAINTING AND MODELING GUIDE?

An Excellent Guide  Apr 11, 2008
Although I don't strictly use Kevin's methods, I am a big fan of his work. This book maps out growing from a beginner in the hobby to a seasoned painter in a few simple steps, provided you use foundry paint. Using other brands, such as Vallejo or GW will inevitably add a few steps, which may make the learning curve a bit steeper for a beginner, but should be easy enough for those with a bit of experience. He covers a number of genres including historical, fantasy, an sci fi and the scheme considerations for each. Overall, and excellent addition to any wargamer's library.
A good guide for painting 25mm wargamming miniatures  Oct 24, 2007
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.
The 'Bible' of miniatures painting  Jul 19, 2007
Dallimore has provided an excellent guide to the eye-catching 'Foundry' style of painting in this book. Clearly presented with illustrated step-by-step guides and a plethora of example images for inspiration - many historical eras along with fantasy, steampunk and sci-fi are all covered - this book is a must have for any miniatures painter, from beginner to advanced. The only criticism is that the paints referred to are all Foundry products (unsurprising considering the title of the book). However, conversion guides from Foundry to Games Workshop, Vallejo, Plaka and many other brands of paint are easily found online. Highly reccomended!
Great Miniatures Painting Guide!  May 20, 2007
I had been looking forward to picking up Kevin's book for sometime and was not disappointed with the purchase. Kevin's painting style is provocative and unique. In this guide he shows you exactly how he takes a primed miniature from start to finish in very easy to follow pictures and illustrations. This guide is the best I have read on the topic and loaded with wonderful pictures of beautiful Foundry miniatures.
The Definitive Guide to Miniature Painting  Aug 23, 2006
Kevin's book is a must have item for beginners, experts and everyone in between. At last someone has gone to great lengths to show what an interesting hobby figure painting can be. If you're a wargamer, role player or collector there's plenty in here. The book clearly describes a series of step by step methods for achieving professional results. The full colour illustrations are enough to justify buying this book alone. The methodical description of the painting process and the advanced hints and tips though make the book. Highly recommended as the only real source book on the subject
