Bloggers in Print
I got my electronic copy of Battle Games yesterday, and found a very well written article on figure painting. I found myself alternating between thoughts of "hey this guy does what I do" and "dang those figures and bottle cap thingies look familiar". When I got to the bottom of the article I found out why everything looked so familiar - the author and painter was Stokes from http://grandduchyofstollen.blogspot.ca/.
Well done Stokes, lots of good advice. I follow some of the same rules - a white base coat, thinned down acrylics and washes. I employ the two feet rule - if needs to look good from 2 feet away. Things have been silent from the Duchy of late, I suspect it's end of term crunch for him but I'm looking forward to more.
