Hi folks,

it's not a long time I play BoW, but I like the game *a lot*, both for the setting and the game per se. I decided (in a rush of sheer folly, probably) to start painting the minis, at least those from the core set. The only (little, almost negligible) problem is that I practically have never painted a mini before ::laughter::

So, any of you guys has a good tutorial or some good advices on how to do this properly? I've read a couple of comments here and there, but most of the stuff I've found is rather technical and after a while I get lost. Plus, BoW minis are rather tiny, so possibly even some advices on the brushes to be used would be really appreciated!

Thanks for the help!

JULIA

Have fun,

Thank you, Argwinkle, for the links :-) I'll go though all of them later on, today.

Thanks for help!
