    I don’t want to disparage Army Painter and people like their products, but they did not invent the ‘Army Painter’ technique, colored primers, or quick shading products/methods. So what is their ‘Significant Development?’

    I guess I’m just not in the mood for undue over-promotion today.

    They might not have invented it but they sure made it popular.

  • I got my copy last week. Nothing really ground breaking but I find it to be very useful for those new to the hobby.

  • Back in the early 80s Games Workshop had a free painting pamphlet that dramatically improved my painting. I just got one of these last week in an order from Neal at The War Store. I must say, I was impressed. I guess, though, that it’s a significant development because it’s free and excellently presented. I recommend it highly.

  • I would cheerfully pay money for this. As noted very good guide for basic painting of wargames figures.
