Looking at the various paint techniques (shading e.t.c.) and lingo is there a book that covers the whole miniature painting art?

I read "How to paint Citadel miniatures" to learn how to paint my Warhammer fantasy miniatures. It provides lots of examples and detailed explanation ..

Another technique might be the quick shade dip, which could save you a lot of time! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw1b56j_gSI. I'm not too happy about the glossy look, though.

Cheers!

This is not a book, but a DVD: miniature painting with Jérémie Bonamant. It's great. It explains a lot of techniques and gives some great examples. Very useful for beginners and for advanced painters.

For beginners, I found Foundry mini's guide better than the citadel one (better structure to the book going through techniques and what you need in the order you encounter them).

Also GW's 'eavy metal painting guide wich is OOP but better than the 'how to paint citadel miniatures' book

Another DVD that I like is the Hot Lead DVD from Reaper. Three DVD set which is very useful.
