Following on from the coup over at Legion of Plastic last month and acting as a kind of prelude to next month’s release of The Emperor’s Willthese miniatures are truly great examples of JB’s output and unique style of miniature painting.

And it tends to have a more limited palette so you might not want to use every colour available, but other than that there are no real rules.
While not considering myself a blanchitsuist i have taken inspiration by a lot of the approaches to painting mentioned above and used those to improve my miniatures.
