One of the things I did pick up at GamesDay 2008 was Forge World’s Imperial Armour Model Masterclass Volume One.
This is a fantastic book on how to model and paint Forge World tank models.
The first book of its kind produced by Forge World, it deals with advanced techniques for modelling and painting your Forge World and Games Workshop models, and features a guide to working with resin. Written by two of Forge World`s studio team; Phil Stutchinkas, winner of many model competitions including the prestigious Euro Militaire 2006 Best of Show, and multi-Golden Daemon award winner Mark Bedford.
The book is a 124 page full colour hardback, lavishly illustrated with high quality photos, featuring numerous advanced modelling and painting techniques for making your Warhammer 40,000 models truly something special.
Whether you are building and painting a centre piece model for your army or constructing a detailed diorama for display, this book is packed with innovative techniques for construction and painting to help you create stunning models. All the techniques are demostrated in step by step detail in extensive construction and painting sections that range from painting tanks to constructing a diorama, to building wargames scenery and terrain.
I have really enjoyed reading the book and have picked up a range of ideas and tips for my models.
