About this Product
Sculptor and Master Modeller, Pete Armstrong, shares the skills and techniques that have made him one of the great figure modellers working today. In this classic Masterclass series book, his practical and detailed text describes construction methods, super-detailing, conversion work and finishing techniques used on a series of modelling projects from the ancient and medieval world. Crammed with models of Anglo-Saxons, Romans, mounted knights, knights Templar, castles, kings, bowmen, billmen and monks! All backed up by 250 colour photographs and drawings.
Peter Armstrong was educated at Keswick School in Cumbria after which he spent some time abroad and at sea before taking a degree in Fine Art at Maidstone College of Art. He worked throughout the 1970s as a Secondary School art teacher in Cumbria during which time his fascination with military history and modelmaking led him to produce his first model soldier. More followed and in time a small scale production line was set up to satisfy growing demand. This led to Pete being able to leave full time teaching in the early 1980s to develop his embryonic modelmaking sideline into a full time business. Pete is the sculptor behind Border Miniatures and his books are the fruit of his many years of modelling experience and research.
