Modelmaking Guru is creating video guides/tutorials for Warhammer, Gunpla & sci-fi models

patrons

Welcome, and thank you for considering supporting me!

I have been a modelmaker for over thirty years, and over the last few I have been filming my builds for YouTube in the form of tutorials and helpful guides. With the support of Patrons I will be able to build more, film more, spend more time with you on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and here, guiding, advising and shooting the breeze. I can also invest in better equipment, better video editing software and more, which I will also be able to use to create more varied content such as convention footage and out-and-about stuff. If pledges reach a high enough level, I'll be able to have enough of an income to offer giveaways of builds and unopened kits to ALL my followers.
 
So again, a million thanks for deciding to help support me, I love you all and I never believed what they said about you anyway.

Awesome! You have chosen to help me out! Your super-lovely support helps me continue this work. Your pledge may be little, but your heart is big and I love you just as much as anyone else who is kind enough to help me out! For your thoughtful support, you get access to non-video Patreon exclusive posts and comments on this page, access to Patreon Lens videos, access to major non-Patreon exclusive video content a week before the rest of the general public* ADVERT-FREE, access to the Patron-exclusive Discord server, and will be credited and thanked at the end of each and every video I post, so your kindness can be noted for all to see! 

(*excludes eModels videos, mailbag videos, Warhammer Conquest episodes and time-critical announcements)

You are an awesome person and I love you (although I don't want to have your babies or owt like that). You are contributing what you are able and I am incredibly grateful. Patrons contributing $5 a month will have the same rewards as the tier one pledge as well as access to eModels build videos a ADVERT-FREE a week before they appear on my channel.  and will be credited and thanked at the end of each and every video I post, so your kindness can be noted for all to see!

Holy cow! Look what you just did! Your partronage is super-awesome and I don't know what to say. If everyone is as generous as you, then I'll be able to do this full time and spend my days doing what I love, for you guys. Your wonderful contribution gets you the same benefits as the Tier one and two pledges, as well as access to Patreon-exclusive posts, videos and builds. I will also give advance notice of occasional giveaways, competitions and build sales to Patreon subscribers at this level and above, before they are announced to the wider public. You will also be eligible for Patreon-exclusive giveaways and competitions. 

There may or may not be baby-having at this pledge level.

There are no words, and I DEFINITELY want to have your babies. All of them. All.

For this level of contribution, you retain all the benefits of all other pledge tiers, but you get an extra awesome benefit - Patrons who have happily contributed 12 consecutive pledge payments at this tier will be offered a fully built and painted Warhammer  model of their choice up to the kit value of an Imperial Knight kit (plastic only - excludes Forgeworld kits) OR you will be given first refusal to claim for free any build that would otherwise be destined for sale. My strengths lie in vehicles and 40K Imperial forces, so keep that in mind. If you've always wanted an expertly painted Knight or Baneblade for example, you are sorted!

If possible, the build may be filmed as a Patreon-exclusive series (unless the build is particularly complex in which case it will not be filmed other than quick video diary updates). This will be shipped to you free of charge (unless the size of the model and packaging is excessive in which case I may ask you to make a partial contribution towards shipping, but we will discuss that in advance). In the event of squads or multiple figure kits, it may be wise if you were to (or I may ask you to)  order a Skirmish Case for me to use to ship them to you when finished.

Please note the build offer includes build and paint, not lighting, custom construction, dioramas or modification. In the case of smaller units and vehicles, multiple kits may be an option, up to the value limit.

This offer excludes Forgeworld models due to the higher cost and unreliability of their moulds (and I generally hate resin). To avoid me suddenly having to acquire an expensive kit, the value of the kit(s) you choose should be no more than an Imperial Knight kit. Higher value kits may be possible but I would ask you to contribute to the purchase, or provide the kit.  Offer is valid for one redemption per patron per 12-month subscription period and can be repeated after every 12 pledge payments. 

If you decide to clam a model I have already built instead (i.e. a model that would be destined to go up for sale, excluding Patreon reward builds and eModels builds) then you can simply let me know whilst I am building it and I can earmark it for you. To keep things fair, it will be first come, first served and once you have chosen you will be committed to receive that model once your twelve pledges have been made.

I will contact you when your 12x payment period is up. Please be aware there may be significant delay between your pledge period and the kit being completed - if I have a number of patrons at this level I will have to build their kits one by one in order, and I most likely will also be in the middle of a build, and larger more complex builds will take longer, but I will keep you updated. 


Please be aware that cancelling or reducing your pledge below this tier before the 12x pledge triggers will reset your counter back to zero.

Cooking with Gas and You Get MOAR!

With this much pledged each month, I will be able to keep myself stocked up in kits and material, as well as invest in better equipment and rarer/more expensive kits AND pay some towards living expenses. I will still need a job, but at least I only need to get a part-time one! I will have much more time and will be able to provide content much more frequently both for Patreon and non-Patreon followers! Thank you!
