New Mini Painter Guide

Welcome! New mini painter! This is my complete guide to get you on the road to painting your first mini. I am approaching this as if you have never picked up a brush or a model.

If you have been painting minis for a while, this could be a good refresher course, but will likely be too basic for you. Never fear, I have lots of other content that will be helpful as you strive to improve your mini painting skills.

These are the topics that I will be covering in this guide. Each link will take you to the lesson on that topic. At the end of the lesson, you can come back here and chose another topic or you can proceed to the next lesson by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.
