Hello!

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 already received I am now creating videos full time, allowing me to produce an average of 3 videos or PDF bundles each month with a heavy focus on the most popular series as determined by Patreon surveys.  This will mean plenty more Imperial Assault and Descent videos, but will also leave time for me to explore a wide range of additional games such as Kingdom Death Monster,  Star Wars Legion, and many more.

In addition, by popular demand I will be using Patreon 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 growing library of exclusive, patron-only PDF guides of which I usually produce a batch of three per month.  You can see the full list of miniatures covered as PDFs here: sorastro.com/pdf-painting-guide-index-for-patrons

Please note that you are able to set a monthly limit in Patreon as to how much you wish to contribute so you will always be in control regardless of how many videos I produce each month! 

Finally, a quick note about sponsorship in the interests of transparency: I sometimes accept commissioned work from the likes of FFG if it's a game I like the look of; in those cases I will NOT be crowdfunding such content (although I still hope you enjoy it!).  (This is the main reason why I have stuck to the "per-episode" pledge model rather than the monthly model - because it allows me to cleanly separate my patron-funded work from any sponsored content.)

Thank you, and happy painting!

Sorastro.

This milestone will enable me to fund the mastering and publication of a second album of music which will be a compilation of the best fantasy and medieval music composed for the Zombicide: Black Plague and Descent video series.  (The first album of Imperial Assault music is funded and on it's way in October.)  These albums will hopefully form the perfect accompaniment to your painting and gaming sessions!
