Small figures of ancient and medieval warriors clad in leather or metal armor, available at any toy or hobby store, make wonderful, challenging figures to paint. Using clear, concise instructions and detailed photographic illustrations, Mike Davidson guides readers through the steps necessary to first prepare, then paint, and finally display these tiny replica warriors of ages past. Both hobby and oil paints are used to complete these figures, their armor, and their weaponry. Mike also provides instructions for painting realistic display backgrounds. Additionally, formulas for mixing a variety of useful colors are included.
