The Figurementors Magazine: Historical Edition Issue 18



The month of April sees some quite radical changes at figurementors! We continue streamlining the design and quality of the magazine, starting with The Figurementors Magazine – Historical Edition Issue 18.

We have a new name for the magazines which tie in more noticeably with the name of our site. There are also tweaks to our design and a new cover price, going forward! 


The new price starting with this issue is something we have been considering for a while now! We believe in the quality of our magazine whilst also recognising the need to stay competitive and affordable. The price change also coincides with the magazines going to a monthly release format. 

Going monthly starting with this issue is a massive undertaking by the team. However, over time we have realised there is a lot happening over a two-month period! In order to stay relevant and up to date, a monthly magazine makes more sense. We really hope this is something our existing customers will appreciate. Perhaps it will also lead to attracting newer customers also. Without a loyal fanbase figurementors magazine could not continue to improve. 


In The Figurementors Magazine – Historical Edition Issue 18 we interview award winning James Rice; who goes from strength to strength in his quest to perfect his Art. We bring you two reviews, as we take a closer look at new releases from RP Models and Medieval Forge Miniatures. This month we also have a beautiful gallery of entries at last year’s Sevres Show. Then there is our Putty & Paint gallery and we have not even come to our three sensational tutorials! 

Steve Jourdain provides the figurementors magazine with his process of painting a Napoleonic bust, namely Kleber. The main focus is on the painting of the face and the complexion and smooth blends are absolutely stunning! 


Fabio Fiorenza is our cover story this issue and we change the historical era to Ancient Rome. Fabio’s knowledge and passion for the era is exemplary. Here he provides us with a full article on how to paint one of his own releases, Commodus Disguised as Hercules. 

Have you ever wondered how some Artists are able to create such perfect and wonderfully detailed heraldry. Lorenzo Evangelista unveils a superb technique for painting heraldry on a shield although the technique can easily be modified to use on clothing and other apparel. 

So, there you have it, we hope you will enjoy The Figurementors Magazine – Historical Edition Issue 18, in fact, we are sure you will! 

Viva la Historia!
