What type of figures are you going to use? I paint exclusively the Classic Heavyweight type figures. I use Top Spins (contact LLoydie) and Santiago figures (SantiagoTable Soccer). Other figures are of course available.

If you are wanting to go the Classic Heavyweight route i would suggest matt enamel paint (Humbrol and Revell) to keep them true to the original stuff. Use enamel thinners to clean brushes and thin paint if required. Just a note modern paints rarely match the original stuff used by Subbuteo so if you are looking to recreate those types of teams you will need to mix paints to get desired shades.

You could use acrylic paints (water based) as an alternative and these are easier to use.

Zuego teams for example tend to be gloss finish but each to their own.

In terms of brushes get some 0, 00 and 000 sizes.You can spend as much or as little as you like on these.

re painting players ....people will have their own way of doing it. For me i start with skin, then paint kit (lighter colours first) then boots and hair. i tend to use old bases to 'hold' players whilst i paint them. Figures tend to come in white or flesh. Personally i dont prime figures before painting them up.

Ultimately though do whatever you want to do really and enjoy it.

Like Alex (Ogi) said look through the 'Custom Paint Jobs' section for ideas and inspiration.

Hi! I will use a unpainted zeugo team that i bought from SubbuteoWorld.

I will make Sporting Lisbon, the problem is that when I bought the paints, the cashier gave me them with diferent types, so I have gloss, matt and satin paints.
Is that a problem?

Not a problem which type of paint you use. But for me using different types on the same team would be a bit odd looking. I suppose you could use a varnish finish after painting. This could bring up a more uniform finish.

And going for a hooped jersey (and maybe socks too) on a 1st attempt. I admire your ambition& confidence.

The kit you are thinking isn't the kit I am going to replicate
I will make Sporting's third kit, which is half green, half white

Hello! (once again...)

Well, before I painted my figures, I made a test fit.
BUT, the holes in the bases were smaller than my figures' inserts :crazyeyes:
Is there any procedure to make before painting? Like sanding the figure or other thing

EDIT: No I didn't paint them. JUST IN CASE



THANKS

If your wife has a metal nail file, just rub it across the bar a little

My friend Paul create the above blog years ago, it should help with the basics. If you get stuck, YouTube will help, search for the War gamer channel, the principles of painting figures are the same for subbuteo figures.
