Chapter 1 - European Knight - Medieval Armor
In the first chapter, Mike Lim takes us through the general blocking out of the figure, gradually building up the armor. He starts off with the pauldrons, progressing onto painting the chest and arm plates, and through to painting effective looking chain mail - while also showing us how to add texture to our paintings.
Chapter 2 - Greek - Roman Ancient World Armor, Spartans, Trojans
In the second chapter, Mike starts off with blocking in the main silhouette, and then filling out the face and the general shape of the armor. With all the basic shapes and colors down, he then goes into adding the final detail, such as the different armor plates, rivets, rings and so on.
Chapter 3 - Oriental Japanese/Samurai
In the final chapter, Mike Lim shows us how to build up the general figure using the same techniques that were used in the previous two chapters. Starting off by painting the helmet, he works his way down the figure this time.
