Tale of Painter is an unofficial Warhammer hobby magazine and painting blog. Since 2011, we provide you with free tutorials, in-depth reviews, and stunning images of our painted miniatures. The creations of our contributors have been showcased in White Dwarf, Warhammer Visions, and on Warhammer Community multiple times.

We are a community of like-minded hobbyists who share a passion for painting and collecting Citadel miniatures, just like you. We take pride in investing significant effort into our editorials, tutorials, and photography to deliver the best hobby content possible.  Blogging and writing about our hobby is a labour of love that we undertake in our spare time, alongside our day jobs. Tale of Painters is entirely free, but if you’d like to support our work, consider joining us on Patreon for exclusive hobby resources and behind-the-scenes content.

If you represent a tabletop, gaming, or scale modelling company with an intriguing product for our audience, reach out to us to discuss potential collaborations or product reviews.
