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 I currently receive I am now creating videos full time, allowing me 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 others.

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 growing library of 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: https://sorastro.com/pdf-painting-guide-index-for...

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!

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!
