99th post - Armoured Faramir! (Tutorial)

Hello friends!

As promised in the 98th post, here's the tutorial for the armoured Faramir on foot miniature.
It's a metal miniature, from the Battle Games in Middle Earth series (issue number 59).

As I've said before, this is, in my opinion, a great sculpt. I'm not even a great fan of this kind of Gondor armour, since I find it a bit boring to paint, but this specific model really gave me an enjoyable paint session.


First of all, one of the most important parts of the painting process: the priming!
In this case, the model was primed black.

  1. Painting is a great art especially when it come to paint a sculpture. I wish I could paint so I really appreciate the people who paint new and exciting stuff.
