From Box to Table : 28mm Carthaginian Foot Painting Tutorial

 


It's been over 5 years since I last did a From Box to Table feature on the blog, but with my increased use of the Utubes for Yarkshire Gamer content got me thinking and I thought I would try the format in moving pictures.


First subject for the new Box to Table are some 28mm Gripping Beast Hannibals Veterans. Helping out are some LBMS shield decals.

The first video covers preparation on the figure and the shield and covers painting metallics on the model.


The second instalment covers the main painting process.

Whilst the third and final episode goes through the flesh, washes and shields with a bit of a review of the two units I completed at the end.


Each video is about 20 minutes long.


Hope you found the videos of use and it was interesting for me to watch them back to see how little I use detail brushes 🀣
I'd be interested to hear what you think about breaking the video down into 3 parts as I have compared with a single long video like I did for my Horses in Oils videos.


I've got some WW1 Naval Ships on the table being finished off and I've done a Box to Table video on them too which I will post up later in the week.

  5. Really enjoyed watching this and found the decal and varnish tips really useful. I was interested to see that you use your paints thick from the bottle with no watering down

    1. Many thanks, glad the videos where useful πŸ‘πŸΌ I have never really got the watering down paints thing, it just means multiple layers to get the same coverage, great on a single Games Workshop figure which you spend months over, on big units of 28mm, waste of time.
      Regards Ken
