"Several areas of confusion constantly arise within the various figure painting forums. One of the most repeated, is the question of SS camouflage schemes. This book takes a fairly unique view on the difficulties for modellers (of all levels and experience) by approaching it from their perspective. This book is excellent but it is NOT and (makes no pretence to be) a 'definitive' guide to SS camouflage schemes, rather it takes a 'catalyst' approach to the subject - therein lies the real strength of the book..." -Jim Rae, Armorama
"This book is a terrific resource for reproducing the Waffen SS in full detail with clear and concise instruction. I can honestly say that although figures are not my specialty, (but I have done quite a few in my 30 odd years at the hobby), after studying this manual I desperately feel the need to try this authors methods, and do plan to do so in the very near future…Very highly recommended from this modelers point of view." -Mark R. Smith, Historicus Forma
Written by one of the world's leading figure modellers, this title features the main patterns of Waffen-SS camouflage and dress and describes in clear step-by-step instructions how to achieve these finishes. Advanced figure sculpting techniques, including conversions, are also covered, providing plenty of detail and diverse challenges to modellers of different abilities, from the less experienced to the highly skilled. Calvin Tan's superb base artwork and his multi-layered painting technique are brought to the fore in this visually detailed, packed and engaging treatment of one of the most enduring, popular figure-modelling subject areas.
