Welcome to Figure Painter Magazine issue 47. This issue has a bit of an old familiar ‘Basement’ feel to it, with articles from Adrian Hopwood who bring us a brilliant introduction into mixed media model making and painting with his War Pig tutorial. To add to that, Adrian also gives us his thoughts on a relatively new miniature from Grey Matter Figures. Continuing the ‘Basement’ feel, we have the second part to Conrad Mynett’s ‘Cyclops’ tutorial. When I said The Basement, I meant the long gone and sadly missed forum, not the underground dwelling.
