Hi guys,

As this is my first topic on TMP, I thought that it is probably a better idea to start out with something for the community and not just to link to the small miniatures label that I have started running a year ago.

…subtle marketing, huh? Curious yet? ;)

Anyway, here is a step by step article that I created when I painted up my version of Roy Urquhart, which explains how I got from this…


to the final result…

Enjoy the article: link

Very nice. I have often thought of using inks. Did you dilute them at all or straight from the bottle?

@Larry
I pretty much always dilute them. The thing with Inks is that they are highly pigmented and very saturated, so if you don't dilute them, their effect becomes too strong (at least for my liking and for how I am using them).

Thank you for the response I will have to give them a try!
