Zang's Painting technique and tutorials links


Hi Guys,

So I am a habitual youtube junkie,I like to see how the pro's paint models in line with codex's and also browse through their tutorials to see if I can pick up any new tips / tricks that I can then use to better myself. I was chatting to some of the people on the chatbox last night and suggested that I post my links that I currently have saved in this section so that others could potentially use it as a quick reference guide if they need to find something or if they are looking for inspiration / ideas. I've tried to organise it to match the armies list on the forum with a more general section underneath. As a general note, I don't collect every army out there so at the time or writing this I mainly only have bits for the armies I have why would i be looking into stuff that I don't use myself right? My intention is to fill this out with not just any old tutorial list or technique list but to have those listed here that people will really find useful. So I am open to any suggestions, post links underneath, let me know if it's a brush or airbrush technique or even a mix of both and I can add it to the list. the structure of it will hopefully settle into a more uniform look over time which will help it to be easier to read.

I'll also post a few place-holder replies under this one so that if I need to expand onto another post then i have the space to do so.
