Contrast Paint Preorder Special

One Thick Coat…at last!

It’s been a long time since a hobby product has had as much hype as the upcoming Citadel Contrast Paints have. This revolutionary line of paint that is being added to the already impressive Citadel Paint line give the look of a base coat, layer, then shade coat – but all in one coat of paint.

Needless to say this might be the next biggest revolution in miniature painting since Shades. It should definitely speed up the painting process for many, yet offer new and exciting possibilities to the hobby-tinkerers out there too. One thing is for certain, everyone is going to want to give them a try.

Painting Table Event JUN

We always feel that the best way to paint is in a group.  Newer painters can ask questions and learn, good painters get to show off a little, you can bounce ideas off each other, and just enjoy the company of those that share this wonderful hobby with you.  In order to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy group painting, BKG is organizing our ‘Painting Table’ event!

When: Sunday, June 23rd, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: None, just bring your stuff and paint with us!

Details: Bring any paints you’ll need, if you don’t have them or can’t bring them we will have some available too.  Bring whatever painting project you have on the go, sit down, and get painting!  We will supply some stations, water cups, paper towel, pallets etc.

New Painters & Kids: Want to learn how to paint, or something new?  Perfect!  We will have staff sitting at the table too, and they’ll be more than happy to teach you what they know.  Other painters will be sure to pipe in with their own advice.  So, while this isn’t an organized seminar event, it will be a great spot to learn, and in some ways even better because you’ll learn tailored to the project you are working on.  We’ll even give you a starting miniature if you’ve never painted before!

In-Depth Hobby Tutorial: How to Make Great Bases

We are often asked when the best times are to come in an learn some things about painting, or hobbying.  And, while we are always happy to have you pop in, we haven’t done enough hobby-focused events to spread some of the expertise our staff and volunteers have.  So we are creating a new event type that we intend to run often: In-Depth Hobby Tutorials.

Tutorial Synopsis: In our first tutorial, Jay will get in to how to make eye-catching basing schemes for your armies.  We will discuss many techniques, and be hands-on with them, to get you comfortable with materials like green stuff, rolling pins, flocks, foliage, scatter, tufts, sands, cork, and more!  Jay will explain the benefits of having a well-based army, and we will go over how to create a basing scheme that isn’t too time-consuming, yet really completes the look.

When: Saturday, August 25, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: $15.00 -or- 8 Hero’s Rewards – or- FREE if you are in the Age of Sigmar Call to Arms

Event Cap: We will only take a maximum of 12 participants, so register now if you are interested!

You Will Get: In addition to the four hours of expert instruction, we will be supplying a hand-out for you to take home, as well as all the building materials you will need for the seminar.  You will be able to take home the bases you create.
