This book looks really cool. If it is half as good as any of their other books for painting then I'd say it is definitely worth it!

From GW Site:
How to Paint Citadel MiniaturesWhen it comes to painting Citadel Miniatures, this book is an absolute must-have. This mighty tome is crammed full of information about painting; from undercoating your miniatures and applying your first layer of paint, right through to your final highlight.

To help you achieve great results there are 136 pages of articles on how to undercoat your models, how to apply Base Paints, Shades, Layers and Glazes, how to use Textured Paints, what Drybrushing is all about, how to use transfers, and many other techniques. There's even a 90-minute DVD included to show you how to put these techniques into practice and get the most out of the extensive Citadel Paint Range. The book also includes eight army projects, each of which is a complete army painting guide from start to finish.

And if that wasn't enough, the book has been designed to stand up on its own, so you don't need to wedge it underneath something to be able to see the stage-by-stage painting guides inside. All in all, this is one book that every hobbyist should own, whether you're new to painting Citadel miniatures, or a painting guru

Sounds pretty cool. I like the stand alone effect, and the price even seem reasonable for once. Better buy a couple before they come to their senses! Smile

Honestly, if you want to save money, I've always found tons of good tips in the various modeling forums for the games I play.

OTOH, something like this is usually better for beginners since it organizes everything in a coherent manner, and provides a good foundation.

Naturally, YMMV. Smile
