This guide is designed for beginner to intermediate level painters. The aim is to achieve a good quality paint job in a way that can be replicated relatively quickly across an army. Some of the later steps are optional, so the method can be ‘scaled’ from rank and file to more special models such as commanders and characters.
A certain level of experience and understanding is assumed of basic painting techniques such as basecoating, layering, using shading washes and edge highlighting, but more ‘advanced’ techniques such as freehand or NMM are avoided to ensure maximum accessibility.

I have several of the guides offered here and each one is stellar. The quality of pictures used is excellent enough to zoom in on them if you really need or want to see something specifically. All colors used are listed along with techniques to do things such as helmet lenses and other odd shapes (grenades for example). Would recommend to anyone.

Absolutely amazing tutorial. I’ve downloaded several of them, just to see how the different colours are achieved. Easy to follow, with really good pictures. If there were one thing i’d improve, it was to show how to fix mistakes. Just a simple example, because i know a lot of us don’t have the same brush control as Luther. 🙂
