I've decided to try my hand at painting those little plastic folks. My Preiser set of railroad workers have been worked to the bone! Need to start populating my railroad structures with permanent residents! Thanks to Jon-monon for the link to Brian Fayle's Figure Painting Website. I've taken some of the ideas found here and merged them with what I already know from my days of Dungeons & Dragons 25mm figure painting plus the advice from Warhammer Figure painters world-wide! I will post my painted LPB's to this thread. But first, let me show you my new "workstation" that I set up in my living room for this purpose. It's an old drafting table with my new magnifying lamp ($20 from Staples) and a brand new set of acrylics, fine point paintbrushes and paint brush tub ($20 total at Michael's). I have since added another swivel arm lamp to the other side to provide more light when I am not using the magnifier. Believe it or not, I find it easier to use my own eyesight and only use the magnifier to "study" the model before I begin.
