The Grimoire with Preston Bernard

Click to view full size

WMG has been developing our own Signature Series of techniques for the past several years. 

Taught by award winning painter Preston Bernard, this comprehensive entry tentatively dubbed the “Grimoire” will provide unique insight into the WMG painting method.

Starting with basic techniques such as flesh tones, armor and metals, the series will quickly progress to cover techniques like counter shading, freehand and value sketching, and more.  

While originally envisioned as an online PDF, we are still developing the format of this guide.  Stay tuned as it develops. Here is a sample page for your consideration:

Building Blocks with Bryan Rees

This foundation series taught by Terrainmeister Bryan Rees explains his unique terrain building  technique and theory in an easy to follow, step by step instructional guide that could then be applied to virtually any style or themed terrain. These same techniques are applied to every piece of terrain you see in our studio, like these featured below:

Paint For Money with Caleb Dillon

In less than a decade, White Metal Games has grown from a single person working out of a garage to a staff of a dozen, with billables close to half a million dollars annually. This online seminar will cover how a commission business begins, grows, and maintains operations in the face of an over saturated marketplace.

The class will cover topics like:

  • Logistics and scheduling
  • Maintaining operations & consistency
  • Handling growth
  • Using social media to SEO like a pro
  • Establishing and harnessing your brand

Students should leave with a practical knowledge base to begin a commission painting service, posed for growth.

Narrative Battle Reports with Edward WinterRose

The format for these Battle Reports is still being considered however here are just some of the reasons why our Battle Reports will stand out:

  • Our armies are painted by people that do this professionally
  • Terrain built to the same quality as our client display boards, with hundreds of ours going into every table
  • Narratively illustrated to create contextual dramatization
  • Filmed in stunning 4K under using the same tools used to capture client models
