Shortly after the book was published I picked up a copy from a GW store and I can honestly say that it changed the way in which I paint models.
However, upon reading the first installment of Model Masterclass I was inspired to try out new things and approach painting with the kind of gritty realism seen in the book. Since buying the book it has been a constant source of reference and I even applied the techniques from the book to army painting with my Death Guard army. Perhaps what most changed my approach to painting was the fact that the book inspired me to buy an airbrush no small investment as most of the techniques in the book either required one or would be greatly improved by having one.
Here is a chimera I painted using techniques from the Model Masterclass book:. Here are my thoughts:. It is a large hardback with thick glossy pages and is a thing of beauty in itself. The book follows the fotgeworld format as its forgeworod and contains a number of detailed step-by-step guides to painting individual models mastetclass with showcases forgeworlf finished models with shorter explanations of how key areas were painted.
There are also some great modelling and terrain building guides for constructing battlefields and dioramas.
The guides are very clearly written and should prove easy to follow. There is also a handy guide to using weathering powders in the back which elaborates on some of the techniques used in the rest of the book.
Personally I was very pleased with this as I have had a bit of trouble using weathering powders in the past and so hopefully this will prove useful. Once again it is the forces of volums Imperium that are in the spotlight as you may have guessed from the title but their alien adversaries also receive plenty of attention throughout the book. There are a foryeworld of the shorter guides on painting Eldar vehicles and a section on an ork diorama which masteclass very different techniques to those employed on imperial vehicles.
Review: Forge World’s Models Masterclass volume 1
One interesting thing about the Eldar guides is the way in which the models are airbrushed using light greys and flesh colours in the case of Saim Hann or using black and white Mymeara in order to establish the basic patterns and highlights. The models are then given several translucent coats of paint in order to tint the basecoat and build up the colour of the vehicle. One surprising thing about the book is the fact that all of the guides refer to the old paint range.
Then again, the book also makes use of a lot of non-GW paints which I found interesting. I think it is good that the writers are using whatever paints they feel will get the best results rather than simply pushing the Citadel range. This gives the advice in the book a much greater sense of objectivity. A couple of other things I feel I should point out for people who may be considering buying the book are the skill levels involved and the equipment required.
As with the previous volume, a lot of the material in the book assumes certain level of painting expertise.
I have only one question though: Volume 2 expands and develops on the techniques established in volume 1 and so, in answer to your question, you will probably find it less groundbreaking that the first forgwworld. Conversely, because the book builds on the previous one, anyone who buys volume 2 without having first read volume 1 may not get the most out of the second volume.
Having said forgeworrld, there are a number of brand new techniques such as painting a marbling effect on armour as I mentioned above.
Obviously how useful you find this depends upon what models dorgeworld wish to paint the examples in the book are Eldar and Chaos. The book also contains useful guides for painting really BIG stuff like titans including a great tutorial on painting large areas of realistic-looking metal.
From the Warp: Forge World Model Masterclass Vol. 2
This goes beyond anything in the first book but again, how useful you find it will forgeworod on whether or not you intend to paint any titans. If you are interested in any of the specific models painted or the techniques used then you will find this a very useful purchase.
If not then you might want to give it a miss. Have been considering whether or not to pick Volume 2 up, so was really useful to hear your opinion on the scope of the contents.
Keep up the great work, especially on the Epic front. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
