I painted another pirate today, bringing my total number of painted pirates to ten. This was my first attempt at painting African skin, and I think it turned out pretty well. I used a method from an article on painting various skin tones from the November 2003 (#286) issue of White Dwarf. A lot of people rag on White Dwarf for being simply a catalog for Games Workshop miniatures. That is true, as the magazine is published by Games Workshop to support and promote Games Workshop games, but among the self-promotion there are a lot of tips and tricks that can be used for any miniatures. Maybe an "old pro" would not find the White Dwarf articles useful, but a noob like me sure does.
