About Curis

Hi, I'm Curis.  I've spent years painting the studio miniatures for industry heavy-hitters Games Workshop, Forge World, Mantic Games, Avatars of War, Wargames Foundry and more.  I can teach you the secrets and skills you need to take your painting to this level. 



I've written painting articles for White Dwarf, and now I'm taken what I've learnt to teach people how to paint in the most genuine and honest way, where we're not locked into using a partiular company's paint range 

STAGE-BY-STAGE TUTORIALS
I provide tutorials super-focussed on the individual stages that make up painting a miniature. They provide the colours and mixes used, the technique, the secrets, the theory behind it and expert guidance on how to get your miniatures looking like this one.

These ten photos show the various stages of a Rogue Trader Crimson Fists Space Marine. Each tutorial will focus on a specific colour, technique or aspect of a miniature that will unlock the secrets of getting studio quality miniatures, as good as you see in White Dwarf.
