Painting miniatures is a big part of wargaming. It turns plain, gray figures into colorful characters for your games. Whether you play on a table or just like to collect and display, you need a good paint set.

What’s Inside a Miniature Paint Set?

A miniature paint set packs everything you need to elevate your figures from plain to extraordinary, including:

  • A variety of colors: These sets come with a range of colors, from basic hues to more specific shades, allowing for diverse and vibrant creations.
  • Primer: A complete set includes a primer, essential for preparing your figures. The primer makes sure the paint sticks well and lasts longer.
  • Brushes: Different sizes and shapes of brushes are included, each serving a unique purpose. Fine tips for detailed work and broader brushes for larger areas.
  • Washes and inks: For adding depth and shadows, washes and inks are crucial. They help in creating realistic effects and enhancing details.
  • Metallics and special colors: For armor, weapons, and magical effects, metallic and special effect paints add that extra flair.
  • Mixing mediums: These allow you to adjust the paint's thickness and transparency, giving you more control over the application.
  • Instruction guide: Often, sets come with a guide or tips for beginners. These can be very helpful in getting started with techniques and color mixing.
