How To Paint – Mysterious Objects


How To Paint – Robes


How To Paint – Armour


It’s quite a few videos but it covers some great topics. In particular, the Armour and Robes videos have some great fundamental pointers on how to paint their respective topics. If you’re looking for some ways to paint some different color armors or robes then check those out. The Mysterious Objects video also has a WIDE variety of techniques to paint various textures you might come across so that one is also helpful as a more “general” video. And, while all the videos are helpful, I’d also like to call out the Zombie Flesh video. It’s not a complex technique but you get some great results. That’s going to be useful for Undead in particular but the same color scheme and techniques could be applied to many other armies.


If you’re planning on getting a copy of Cursed City but the prospect of painting all the miniatures is intimidating our best advice is to take it one model-type at a time. Batch paint, follow along with these videos, and just take your time.

Or you could just play with them as bare plastic…


Which videos did you find helpful? Are you planning to paint your models like the studio or did you have some other paint schemes you wanted to attempt?
