    Anyone have any tips on how you would add veins onto a figure ............currently trying to paint the Viking Warrior from Young Miniatures a lovely figure , the hands are both separate and in my humble opinion very well put together .......

    Acrylics or Oils?.....I haven't done it before but if using oils, I would think blocking in the viens using a Prussian Blue over the acrylic undercoat (pale sand, etc). After it has dried, I'd apply your normal flesh process. The blue should come through just enough to suggest the viens. A different approach could be to apply the blue as a wash over the finished flesh

    Personally....and from an oils perspective....I would not use 'Prussian Blue' for veins....even if you were to use a flesh mix over the top of it....in the hope it will show through.
    Rather....I would suggest a cold grey....applied very thinly over the base flesh mix once it is dry.
    One thing I would advise avoiding....is to use a hi lite colour....IMHO....this is not natural....and is used in high contrast painting....purely for effect.
