About Colin

Welcome! My name is Colin and I love painting miniatures! Thank you for visiting my Patreon. I love putting a fully painted, unique, and well-executed army on the gaming table.  I think it's one of the most rewarding feelings in the hobby. From the initial decision to start an army, to purchasing that first box, settling on a color scheme, and sitting down to paint it for the first time, we all have a vision for what that army is going to look like on the table. I want to help you realize that vision and get the army of your dreams onto the game table!

How is this different from other Patreon pages?

There are a number of very talented painters on Patreon, many of whom focus on developing your skills to paint the best miniature you can and to push your skills on each project.  My focus will be wider, towards painting various armies and collections you may be working on.  I will explore common techniques and skills, but will do so in a way that is applicable to army painting.  I want you to improve your skills, to gain knowledge, and to execute new techniques with confidence. But I also want to develop your painting efficiency and processes so you can see the fruits of your labor as you complete your vision for your army!

What can you expect from me as a Creator?

As a Creator, I will be publishing a minimum of 8 video segment a month which will cover a lot of ground! A minimum of 4 painting tutorials, 2 Painting Feedback videos where I give feedback on miniatures supporters have submitted, as well as 2 finished model showcases a month, where I review finished projects and go over the painting process, linking to relevant tutorials. These videos will add to a library of over 250 video tutorials that I already have on the Patreon! I will also be publishing bonus content irregularly. This will range from written articles to my experience preparing and playing in events. The discord is lively, and I hope to see you there!

-Full Tutorial For Titan and Terrain Available-

In my videos, I talk through everything I am doing, because I believe the HOW, and the WHY is just as important as the WHAT; maybe even more so. You'll see me make mistakes in my tutorials, and then work through them to get to the desired result. Mistakes are inevitable. Mistakes happen all. the. time.  I believe learning how to work through those mistakes is extraordinarily valuable information. Information I want share with you.
