About Sorastro


Creating the best miniature-painting tutorials I can takes a tremendous commitment of time (40-60 hours per episode) and resources.  My video content will always be free to watch, but your support could help relieve some of the costs involved, help upgrade equipment to improve the quality of the videos, and allow me to sustain this as my full-time occupation.

Due to the kind support I currently receive I am able to produce an average of two videos and a PDF bundle each month with a heavy focus on the most popular series as determined by patron surveys. This will mean plenty more Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, but will also leave time for me to explore a range of additional games such as Kingdom Death Monster and Marvel: Crisis Protocol.

In addition, by popular demand I am also using patron funding to launch a series of albums featuring the best music composed for the videos for all users to enjoy whilst painting or gaming, the first two of which are already out.

Other perks include access to my personally-tested paint substitution table (for mostly Citadel and Vallejo paints) as well as access to a monthly bundle of exclusive PDF guides.

Finally, a quick note about the "per-episode" payment model:  The main reason I have stuck with this model rather than the flat, monthly contribution model, is so that I can cleanly separate my patron-funded work from any sponsored content I might take on.  If I choose to create a sponsored video for a company for example, I will not be crowdfunding such content as I don't think it's fair for me to get paid twice (although I still hope you enjoy it!). 

Therefor I usually publish two paid posts per month on Patreon and fit any additional, commissioned work around that.  Please note however that you are able to set a monthly limit in Patreon as to how much you wish to contribute each month, thereby creating a flat monthly contribution irregardless of how many guides I create if you wish.

Thank you, and happy painting!

  • Reaching this goal will allow me to afford to buy an additional 4K camera with better focus tracking to allow me to better capture moving shots - ideal for filming battle reports...!
  • I would also like to begin paying to have proper subtitles included in the videos (including multiple languages).
