The Napoleonic era has been called the age of the military tailor because of the colorful and ornate uniforms of this period. Using a clearly photographed and captioned step-by-step approach, Mike Davidson guides the reader through the process of assembly, painting and display of a commercially produced figure. Mike brings these highly detailed miniatures to life using a combination of hobby paints and oils. He also provides formulas for mixing a variety of Napoleonic uniform colors. While applied to a particular figure, the lessons and techniques learned from this book will enhance any Napoleonic figure the reader may choose to paint.
