Bryan Little has been painting tabletop figurines for nearly 3 decades and has picked up a lot of tricks and tips over the years. He will show you how to paint your own figures and make them pop on the table top. Everyone will receive a figure to paint in the workshop.

Things you will learn:

  • How to start – planning your color choices, paint types, and for table-top gaming, selecting army colors
  • Layering – applying paints of multiple types in steps to achieve more depth and life
  • Detailing – creative application of battle damage, wear & tear, and paint tricks for making your work lifelike

We will provide brushes and a wide variety of paints to use during the workshop.

This workshop is sponsored by Game Kastle.  Attendees will get a zipper bag containing a brush, miniatures, an Army Painter Hobby Guide and a Game Kastle business card.
