This is a step by step tutorial on painting 15mm figures. This style of painting is fast and easy and anyone can learn it.
Illustration (adapted) from the Space: 1889 rule book.
I Start out by cleaning and baseing the figure and then prime. I then paint the base flesh tone.
Now I do a wash of Citadel Devlan Mud.
Now paint the base flesh tone on again. this will give a layered look.
Take the base flesh tone and add white at a 2 to 1 mix. now paint this mixture on the highlighted areas. You can find the highlights by holding the miniature under a light.
Now that you have used this style on the flesh areas you can use it to paint the clothing and other item your miniature has. If you need any help, just ask away in the comments.
