Getting started in miniature painting #miniaturepainting #gaming

Over the last few years, I have seriously committed myself to the hobby of miniature gaming, painting, and terrain building. I try and paint for an hour or so daily. It is my therapy and escape from the troubles of the world and the incessant buzzing of social media chatter.

One of my new favorite painting and modeling channels is Squidmar Miniatures. In this video, Emil gives a miniature painting 101. This is the sort of thing I wish I’d seen when I first got into painting. He covers everything from the tools and supplies needed, assembling, priming, and basing miniatures, how to use a wet palette, brush care, and more.

The only thing Emil doesn’t really cover is the painting itself, but all of the rest of his channel (and countless others) provide those lessons. Here is a piece I wrote for Boing Boing a couple of years ago which includes additional tips for the beginner (or intermediate) painter.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
