Best Hobby Paints For Miniatures

Chrome MiniaturesTUTORIAL: How to Paint Chrome Miniatures 

  • AK Interactive AcrylicsAlready the favorite of many European Painters.
  • Formula P3 PaintsWhile Privateer has “fallen off” some in recent years, their paints are still great!
  • Army Painter WarpaintArmy Painter has been a staple for many since its introduction in 2007.
  • Vallejo AirVallejo paints have been favored over GW’s Citadel line for over 20 years.
  • Vallejo Game Color
  • Citadel Paint If you have to paint the “GW Way,” Citadel is the way to go, but there are so many better and cheaper alternatives out there; it pays to be brave and try something new!
  • Pro Acrylwas created by a true artist specifically for miniatures. These paints are one of the best and most affordable out there, and we 100% recommend them to all.

For Streaming

New section under progress featuring all the gear we use to record video content and stream.

  • Elite Earbuds For Podcasts & Streaming- Pretty much waterproof (I dropped them in a 3 ft mudpuddle), and indestructible ( I also smashed them on the asphalt twice).  15-hour battery life and quick charging case make these my go-to now for everything from phone calls to streaming.
  • Powerful Slim Laptop we use for streaming and working at conventions.

3D Printers Are Great For Miniatures

learn-3d-prinitngTUTORIAL: Learn 3D Printing Today

These days it’s even easier for hobbyists to source and print bits, perhaps more so than any of us had thought.  The undeniable allure is that it’s not too expensive for any person to get into 3D printing in order to monetize and/or supplement their hobby.

3D Printers:


Anycubic Mono X 

photon mono SE


  • Anycubic Monois pretty affordable and easy to use
  • Anycubic Photon Mono SE– printer is magic for minis.
  • Anycubic Mono X Printer– seems to be the new favorite of miniature hobbyists that swear by Anycubic.
  • ELEGOO Mars 2– Clocking in generally cheaper than the Anycubic series of printers (except the base mono) ELEGOO Mars 2 is a perfect “in-between” printer that is a great quality at a great price!
  • ELEGOO Saturn 4k Printer– Between the much larger print area and a resolution approaching actual 4k, the Elegoo Saturn has quickly become a favorite of hobbyists for 3d printing miniatures!

3D Printing Supplies:

You won’t need the pickle jars or the UV cure unit if you get the Anycubic Wash & Cure Station. The new version is pictured above, the old one below.
