9.D. What other detailing can I do? (Miniatures Painting)

Get in the light and give your miniature a good look-over.
Usually a dot of paint or careful drybrushing will bring out the
final details. Certain specialized questions have been asked, the
answers to which are given below:

% Does anyone have a decent method for painting torches?
This answer came from D.R. Splatt (edd440u@nella02.cc.monash.edu.au):
"The best I've personally seen was to paint the flames red at the
base, orange for highlights, yellow for the bulk of the flame and
a light drybrush of white (or black for a smoky flame). Try to
get the flames predominately yellow, eg:

                    |   <--------- White
                   | |
                  |   | <--------- Yellow
                 | ."| |
                |  | |<-|--------- Orange
                 \"(o)"/
                    !------------- Red

Also a 'ragged' orange layer looks good."

% From Kent Reuber (reuber@hydra.rose.brandeis.edu):
"People doing micro-armor have been using this sort of thing to
simulate burning tanks for quite a while. Paint the torch itself
black. Then tear off a small bit of cotton, paint the upper part
grey-black and the lower part red-orange. Glue this bit of cotton
onto the torch."
