In this part of the guide I will go through some rules and principals that will come handy when painting a miniature.
Usually tutorials instruct the reader on which colors to use, on what ratios to mix them and things like that. Before doing that myself I decided that I want to give you a few important details and tips on tecnique: how to use brushes and paints. Let’s start from that. What brushes to use? Most of you already know that a variety of brushes is needed when painting miniatures. What I mostly use are the following:
1. Insane detail brush from Army Painter. This is the main brush I use. It is significantly smaller than the Citadel high detail brush ( which is the thinner brush of GW’s range) Its size is approximately 05 in case some of you are using brushes from other companies. I have found that this brush is ideal for painting space marine armor, freehands, highlights and insane details on a miniature. I use this on most parts of the model.
