As a miniature painter and fine-scale modeler, one of the most important tools I use is the airbrush. Because efficiency is important to me, I’m always on the lookout for ways to speed up my work.
A miniature painter has many tools, but only a few are 100% necessary. Dry palettes are a core tool in any miniature painter’s arsenal. This article reviews some reasons why […]
Non-metallic metal (NMM) painting is the technique of using regular paint (without metallic content) to give the illusion of a metallic, reflective surface. In general, NMM requires high contrast painted […]
We all need brushes, glue, acrylic paint, and good lighting, but if you’re a regular painter of miniatures, you should also get a hair dryer. This article is about why you […]

I’ve been painting 40k and Warmachine models for a few friends. And for kicks, I’ve been trying my hand (and eye) at painting non-metallic metal (NMM). For the less versed, […]
