    You will receive your choice of any one instructional video, choosing from the following list (see the banners on the left which give you a brief synopsis of each DVD).

    Please note: Not all of the miniatures shown in the banners are the actual figure. I will try to update those as the project moves along. Most of the miniatures will be from the Raging Heroes and Urban Warfare lines.

    1- Shaded basecoat
    2- Basic Non-Metallic Metals (NMM)
    3- Freehand Designs
    4- Object source lighting
    5- Glazing away
    6- Advanced Human fleshtone: Light
    7- Advanced Human fleshtone: Ruddy
    8- Advanced Human fleshtone: Dark
    9- Shiny Stuff: Sky-Earth Non Metallic Metals (Advanced)
    10- Strike Gold! Painting Gold NMM

    I strongly recommend that you either begin with or add to your list the "Shaded Basecoat" technique. This is featured heavily on my miniature painting blog at http://wappellious.blogspot.com. The Shaded Basecoat technique is the cornerstone of my entire painting process, and will be the first DVD that is produced.

    Learning this technique will be very helpful, and you can see that it is a vital part of the Painting Pyramid!
