Golem's 2 Day Army Painting Workshop Part 1

At the Golem Army Painting Workshop weekend you will learn the skills and techniques used by a professional studio to:
  • Save you time
  • Create cohesion and visual impact across an army
  • Approach painting larger groups of models with the right mind set
...all of which will make your army look awesome on the table top!

What do I need to bring for the weekend?

Miniatures: Obviously you will need to bring something to paint! This could be an entire force or a few units that you might like to focus on. These models should be built in advance of the event so that we can get straight into the good stuff! It would also be a great idea to bring along some of your existing paint jobs so that we can assess what will be the best way to help you along.

Brushes: We find that most painters have their preferred brush types, so bring something you feel comfortable using. For army painting we would suggest always using a good brush, but we personally like to save our best ones (like Series 7s) for characters.

Brush suggestions: For really good yet cheap brushes, you can't go wrong with Rosemary & Co. Series 33 brushes. A size 2 or 3 and a size 0 or 1 will give you enough variety in size. I would also suggest a large flat headed brush like the Citadel Large Flat Drybrush for larger areas.

Paints: Paints will be provided on the day. However if you have a specific colour scheme in mind using a particular paint range, it would be a good idea to bring these paints along with you.

Notebook: It would be a good idea to bring something along to write down what you are being taught so that you can reflect back upon it at a later date. A camera might be useful for the same reason

We will provide...

Paints: We have a large selection of Citadel paints in the studio which you will be able to make use of.

Lunch (both days): We will provide a selection of food and soft drinks. Tea and Coffee will also be available throughout both days.

But where are you?

We're only 10 minutes walk away from Manchester Piccadilly Train Station, 5 minutes walk from the Ibis Budget Hotel and we have free parking on site.
