I got my latest FAQ book from Andrea Press the other day. It's from the same folks that brought you the Mig FAQ book. No Mig in this one however. This one is all about painting figures... from miniatures to large scale figs in Oils, Enamels, Acrylics and airbrushing.
I thumbed through it and can already say that it is a must-have for anyone wanting to learn about painting figures. If you're contemplating adding figures to your kits/dioramas then this is the book for you.
I got mine from Amazon.com for ~$35 and it's well worth it. Chock full of step-by-steps with full color photos. Here's the link: click here
