Hangar 18 Miniatures Store Update: Marike Reimer Masterworks DVD, New Items from Miniature Factory and Kabuki Models
We have just added painting DVDs into our Painting Books & DVD category: the Marike Reimer Masterworks DVD and the earlier Jen Haley & Anne Foerster Masterwork DVD from Dark Sword Miniatures. Just like other products we carry at the store, we have evaluated both DVDs by purchasing our personal copies. We found that both DVD sets met our expectation and aligned with the rave reviews from miniature painters allover the world.
Jen Haley & Anne Foerster DVD covers the basics of miniature painting. It's recommended for someone who just started at this new hobby. It doesn't mean avid painters don't need to see this. You will be surprised to pick up new technique or tips from this DVD. Marike Reimer painting DVD covers more of the intermediate to advanced level of painting skill. You will learn the secret of her lace freehand painting, sheer fabric and Object Source Lighting (OSL) that made her famous. But one thing that makes these DVDs absolutely a must to have is the format - it not only shows how these painters use the techniques to achieve the effect, but it also shows how to fix things when you make a blunder of your paint job.
Another new items at the store is the new releases from Miniature Factory: Butch and Mary Sue. Miniature Factory has released a line that is very unique. It has the reminiscent (with a twist) of the loving TV Show "The Dukes of Hazard". Combined that with deadly and oversized power tools, these Locals are not something you want to mess with.
More new items from Kabuki Models: Rommel-X and Napoleon Sci-Fi. Stand Alone is the newest line from Kabuki Models, showcasing independent sci-fi characters. Both Rommel-X and Napoleon Sci-Fi are 30mm and cast in pewter/white metal.
