    There&#39;s something just like that in "Painting Citadel Miniatures". Please people, I cannot stress enough how important this book is for new painters&#33;
    Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

    Their blending article is a little vague. I do the "feathering", but it doesn&#39;t work. I&#39;m highlighting tau, and i use bleached bone to highlight vomit brown. When i try to feather the paint, it either leaves a little oval of paint (all the paint in the middle of the line gets sucked away, but the border is still there) or the paint won&#39;t show. And the technique on Coolminiornot is not very good for small areas. Any help on that?

    Here is another good resource on blending. Just click the Tips and tutorials article and there you should find it, along with other helpful tutorials.
