Overview
-

Replicating humans in miniature form can be miniature scenes of unbelievable beauty and technical expertise. The small scenes that take shape under the artist’s hands are of an exceptional intricacy and demand large amounts of effort, as well as great a deal of time. However, the creators of such scenes never regret the time and effort involved as the end result is enchanting and awe inspiring for everyone to see.

In this book, that has taken many months in preparation, we tried to gather representative samples as well as different forms of work. Here you will find the painting of commercial pieces, sculpting, conversions, work on ground presentation and scenery, historical texts, indeed, many different aspects of our hobby have been covered. However, we have also endeavoured to ensure they are all the same standard, from creators and painters from all corners of the globe, to make this presentation as interesting as possible for the modeller, be they beginner or master. This collection of work is aimed at all levels of modellers.

Colour tone recipes, sculpting tips, brushwork tricks, groundwork techniques, and much more, all submitted by well-known artists, compile this mosaic of inspiration that we hope will keep you occupied for many happy hours.
