How to Paint Everything

An article by and           0

Welcome to How to Paint Everything! Here at Goonhammer we’ve been working on a series of articles about how to paint, well, everything. We’re not there yet – it turns out there’s a lot of possible factions and paint schemes in Warhammer! – but we’re well on the way. These articles are not just dry painting tutorials from a single person – they also include some background on the subject, whether that’s the history of the Ultramarines or the story of Yvraine, a variety of different approaches to the painting, and some suggestions for taking your freshly-painted force to the table.

Without further ado, here they are!
