Been spending past few days on the final four Orks Boyz from Battlereach, leaving a final two Boyz with Big Shootas to complete the set. To break up the static position of sitting painting and neck ache I tend to read various sites for further painting techniques. In particular I come across another nice approach to rust and of particular interest was a very well done painting of fire article by Hot-Lead. What makes the fire article so good, was the initial pages on theory of fire and how it should look. Covering image analysis of fires point of combustion through to how objects are shown when heated and cooled. He then proceeds to run through a step by step example of applying this theory to painting an elemental miniature (see Hot-Lead finished example left).
