"Typical of Osprey’s books for military miniature enthusiasts and wargaming hobbyists, this book offers several full color plates and illustrations, and is chock full of tips, advice, and lessons learned from some of the finest painters of military miniatures, model airplanes & tanks, vehicles, etc. It goes through set-up, tools, work spaces, painting tips, weathering, dry brushing, detailing, highlighting, shading and various other tips that are of great value to the novice painter, and even can help more experienced veteran painters and modelers. Well worth a look if you are into model military machines." -Charge! Civil War Wargaming
