Once more, thank you for your kind support!
@ Konrad --> acrylics are my favourite weapon always when painting figures. I use to work with Vallejo ones. I wish I could share here how to but to make a SBS about painting 1/48th scale figure faces is too much for me. Those heads are tiny, really!
I know that most armour modellers use to be afraid of (a) figure painting and (b) to use acrylics. But my experience it is that the learning curve is not tougher than other techniques, IMHO. And the great advantage of acylics over other paints is that you can achieve a great definition and control, so you are not limited to the figure sculpt details itselves and, even more, you can add or enhance poor or missing details just painting those.
There is no specific technique for 1/48th scale more than the rule that smaller size, less demanding detail. To paint a quarter scale face is easier than to paint a 1/35th scale one.
So following online or paper articles about how to paint figures in 1/35th and to give it a try is the way to go!
PS This one is my fourth 1/48th figure painted and the more I paint, the better! So, as always, practice is the key, of course!
