Painting Wargaming Figures: Axis Forces on the Eastern Front (Paperback)
Andy Singleton has been modelling and painting most of his life and has been a professional commission figure painter for some years now. Here he shares his experience and tips of the trade for painting Axis forces on WW2’s Eastern Front: Germans, Romanians, Hungarians and Italians and Finns.
Each of the chapters is broken into step by step guides explaining the steps and colours required to paint the various uniforms used. The emphasis is on quickly achievable results and practical advice that is applicable to painting units or whole armies for wargaming purposes in a reasonable time frame. The techniques described are designed to easily be adaptable to figures of all sizes.
Andy’s clear, step-by-step guidance is primarily designed for those new to historical gaming, and takes the reader through the process from the initial preparation and assembly of the figure, to finishing and basing.
I have been modelling, particularly in small scale, for over 50 years but I am always looking to learn new ideas and there are plenty of useful tips and techniques in here that I will certainly be trying out. I like this one, and especially for wargamers wanting to paint a collection of figures en masse, then this is a very useful reference to have on your reference bookshelf.Military Model Scene, Robin Buckland

You really cannot go wrong with Andy Singleton’s books on painting wargame figures. This latest one delivers excellent advice and techniques on achieving accuracy in Axis Eastern Front figures and I was fascinated by the techniques to paint the various types of camouflage uniforms. I am looking forward to putting the principles into practice. Highly recommended.Michael McCarthy
