Overview
-

The Art and Making of Fantasy Miniatures is a showcase of some of the best talent in the industry. Compiled with the cooperation of eleven of the most innovative companies from Europe, the UK and USA, it shows what goes in to the creative process of taking an initial concept from two-dimensional sketches and translating it into a three-dimensional figurine ready for collectors and tabletop gamers. Game designers, artists and sculptors explain their part in bringing these miniature works of art to life. The book is lavishly illustrated with over 1,000 images, including concept art, work-in-progress sculpts and beautifully painted miniatures.

The book features miniatures from games and companies such as Aradia Miniatures, Alkemy (Alchemist Miniatures), Avatars of War, Godslayer (Megalith Games), Guild Ball (Steamforged Games), Relicblade (Metal King Studio), WARMACHINE and HORDES (Privateer Press), RUMBLESLAM (TTCombat), Drakerys (Don’t Panic Games), Kings of War (Mantic Games) and Freeblades (DGS Games).

REVIEWS
-

"The quality of the artwork, the figure painting and photography are all showcased to the best advantage with the quality of the paper and production of the book... Both the beautifully painted miniatures and the equally excellent 2D artwork illustrations are simply superb."

- Military Model Scene

"...if you are collecting the various models then this has to be the best guide to see what is out there..."
