Welcome to my latest painting guide!
I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!
Both figures were undercoated black before I began.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

Hi , Thank you for this work. I don’t have any talent for choosing paints for mini then you are very helpfull.
Just if you can add back pictures to have a global view of the figurines. Best regards
Thank you, really pleased you find them helpful.
Always looking for ways to improve the guides so love the feedback. I’m adding back pictures to the completed galleries in the newer guides and I will look to add more angles in future guides.
First off, thank you so much for this site. Being brand-new to miniature painting, having a color guide is everything.
That being said, I started out with Groot. I figured that he’d be pretty simple compared to some of the other MCP pieces.
In step 4 of Groot you list 3 different shades. Are all three used to coat the entire miniature or are certain ones just for certain parts? Ex: nylon oil for the cracks and the green shade to simulate moss in certain spots?
Thanks for your comment. For stage 4 on Groot the shades were applied randomly in small spots, focussing on some of the bigger recesses. This was to simultae a more wood like effect and help break up the main colour.
Thank you for the guides also I suffer with the same trouble as the other poster with choosing the right colours so the guides are a massive help.
With Groot though, I was just wondering about the shading (Stage 4) of the bark which has three shades. are they for specific areas of the model? I’m assuming you do not mix them. Thanks again!
I applied the shades randomly, focussing on the deeper recesses. This stage was to add a bit of varience to the main colour and make it feel more woodlike.
