Imperial Armour Masterclass

(Image from Forgeworld)

I'd been eyeing off the Imperial Armour Masterclass Vol. 1 from Forgeworld for a while, and after seeing the results from people following it when modelling tanks, I was very keen to get my hands on a copy.

Luckily for me, I managed to grab a copy from someone quite cheap. It's a great book, and although most of the techniques can be found on the net in various places, it's nice to have them collected together in one place and actually see them all used on the same model. I'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting to go that step further with their modelling and painting.

Once I get on to my tanks (hopefully in the near future) I'll be using these techniques and aim to come up with something special!

Always interesting to hear where you got it 'quite cheap'.

This book looks great, though pricey, so if you can let us readers know how to obtain a cheap copy I am sure I am not the only one forever grateful!

Keep on blogging!

I'm sorry to say it was a 2nd-hand copy, so it was a one-off thing! Luckily for me it has hardly been read so is in very good nick. I use the Trading Forum on WAU a lot and picked it up from there.

I was quite fortunate!

I've had the book for a while, I just need to build up the courage to try the techniques out on my valk!

I know the feeling - it's taking me a while to work up the courage to even put my tanks together! I'm too afraid of messing something up!
