Javier Gomez, better known in wargaming circles as El Mercenario, is an award-winning figure painter with a very good reputation, to the extent that his painting services are used by the legendary figure sculptures the Perry twins. He is also editor of the Spanish-language military history magazine Desperto Ferro.
"... recommend this book to anyone who has maybe tried to paint wargaming figures in the past or is contemplating creating an army in order to play these types of games. I have used some of the suggestions here as well as the highlights for some of my own figures and they have produced improved results. The book is aimed primarily at the miniature wargaming community but is valuable for any modelers to incorporate these techniques into their painting projects.--Mataka.org
