Today is a big day for me, finally I have opportunity to start my second endeavour in the world of war gaming. In first post I would like to explain you few aspects of this site.
We’ll get through few topics, but I’ll try to be as brief as possible.
Who am I?
My name is Mateusz Bermes, I’m 26 and I’m from Poland. I’m active Warmachine player, but I played many systems like Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40k and few others.
Also I’m decent painter, I’m the owner of Jolly Roger Studio, which is my first enterprise. It’s quite successful miniatures painting studio and it learned me a lot about creating good-looking armies.
In conclusion I play Warmachine for a hobby and paint miniatures for a living. I’m really happy about that. 🙂
What I want to accomplish?
I want to put all my knowledge about painting miniatures in one easy accessible place. I want to create site which will teach people how to paint miniatures in the most effective way possible.
I want to focus on painting whole armies. There is a lot of sites teaching how to paint contest wining miniatures. I think it isn’t the point for most gamers. Painting miniatures is hard enough without mismanagement.
We’ll use some advanced techniques, but I’ll show you how it’s applicable in creating your army, not only on a single miniature.
I really need your feedback.
When I began to teach my team in JR Studio, I realized that I forgot how it’s to be beginner. For me everything is natural and obvious and I can’t teach with that point of view.
I’ll need you insights to make my experience more applicable and easier to learn.
I would be more than happy if I could help you deal with that crazy amount of plastic/silver toy soldiers every one of us have. 🙂
