I got the book and I think it sucks compared to the first two. The very first tutorial is covered in one of the other books brass scorpion.
You know i totally forgot about that one. Forgeworlr I’m not sure I will be buying it. I recommend both highly. Now they have their own range of paint at FW, I can see why they maeterclass now start to talk about those, and because infantry are not tanks, I can see why those figures don’t stack up as well as some on the internet. Thanks for the review – I got Horus as a christmas present from my wife and was planning to buy this book as usually the tutorials on how to paint their stuff are excellent.
Review: Forge World Model Masterclass The Horus Heresy Volume One – Tale of Painters
I refer to the first 2 books a lot, especially book 2 and the Warp Runners Reaver Titan as thats the scheme I have used for my Warhound, Reaver and Knights. The first two were awesome, but this sounds disappointing: Pre-ordered as I love the last two and after flicking through this one felt a little sad that it hadn’t maintained the same level of awesome.
I got this book thinking it would be focused on painting marines and characters but LOL at how bad the tiny bits of guidance you get on characters are. They even push that stupid mix of 4 citadel paints for the Sons of Horus and then apologies for it buy saying you can buy their own brand greens to create the scheme Concerning Citadel Paints and Airbrush: You can buy the older books and get better versions of the tutorials that are in this one.
Anon, don’t bother with the book. Mine is still shrink wrapped ready to look at at home. Forge World customer service, models and other work has always been amazing. That’s one awesome masterclass – “Paint it good!
For a great Horus tutorial by awesome painters looks here: I like it, but can eaily understand why people will say it’s lacking. It is a fun book, but I don’t know ,It just got side tracked!!
Thanks for the review. Mawterclass you try the new Citadel Air ones? I’ll have a read of mxsterclass this weekend I am sure! I’m just being a bit of negative Nancy as it mastedclass not compare to the previous two books. I have a couple of the Masterclass books, but find that they are OK for one read through – then just placed on the bookshelf. And will be used on the Warlord too. Thursday, January 21, Review: Just felt let down with this one after anticipating so much after already owning the older books.
It sounds like they have scrimped on the content tbh and blurry pics is pretty much unforgivable at this level. Just got Angel Giraffes Masterclass vol 1 and it’s really good for the step by step. I have put this one on my birthday list to leave where the wife will see it but am considering scratching it off the list.
The only difference is that they use forge world paints to pre-shade. I got the book, and I admit its really nice.
However I tested the Salamander paint scheme they give you; and it comes out nothing like the pictures: Having read the comments, I’m glad that I’m not the only one feeling this way as I felt a little uneasy writing negatives about the book. Nothing but how to so great value IMHO. Infact with the internet people are really spoilt with the amount of brilliant tutorials and all. Using Tamiya, Klear, airbrushes, and all kinds of other stuff that was not a GW product push was enlightening.
I’m a little lukewarm about the HH paint jobs coming out of Forgeworld. Even the weathering is a let down as for some reason they forget how to use oils and spirits.
I dont foregworld why they would include vehicle weathering when they covered that extensively in the other books to a far better standard. From the rest I saw there was not much “new” content.
Forge World Masterclass
Oh yea and they even tell you to use boltgun metal. I feel bad saying that, but it’s true. Exactly how I felt too. Both which are fantastic painting guides on all fronts.
The thing is I really like the book. If you’re still looking for a tutorial, check out the Painting Buddha video tutorials. However the other 2 FW Model Masterclass books I still read and find useful for a multitude of techniques. It’s marked volume one so I’ll be a bit more careful before pouncing on volume two when it comes out But it’s still nice and I’m glad I own it. Many of the artists have their WIP threads too so you can follow their process. I have other How-To books that I refer to on a regular basis.
Think I’ve dodged a bullet now as if I’d bought this for a tutorial on Horus and found out the tip was “paint it good” I think I’d have been very angry.
Have you tried the pure GW book which came with a dvd and covered various techniques albeit at a much lower skill level.
