  1. So lately I love to paint busts, and larger miniatures. Now I have been drooling over several large scale miniatures, 54 to 200mm... I looked at sites who sell those, like Pegaso, Andrea, El Greeco etc etc.. And what bothers me a bit but also intrigues me is the extraordinary painting on some of those. I especially mean things like the shields on Greek Hoplites, the Barding and Banners of Medieval Knights. Some of these look like masterpaintings on a mini. So my question. Are these superb painters? Or is there a trick I could learn? Are there templates being used and how do you use those? Is this in anyway possible for an avarage painter to achieve something like that? And with a BRUSH! I don't own ( never will I touch..) an airbrush.. I know there are a few painters on this forum who are able to pull this off. So care to share some secrets? Some examples of what I'm talking about I got these from the internet, there are many more beautiful examples like this. I'm no Michelangelo, but I really would try to paint a shield like that on a larger mini. So I'm curious if there are any step by steps, tricks, and such available.
