Tale of Painter is an unofficial Warhammer hobby magazine and painting blog. Since 2011, we bring you free tutorials, in-depth reviews, and stunning pictures of our painted miniatures for your inspiration. The works of our contributors have been featured in White Dwarf, Warhammer Visions, and on Warhammer Community numerous times.


We are a group of like-minded hobbyists who love painting and collecting Citadel miniatures, just like you. We pride ourselves to put a lot of effort into our articles, tutorials, and photography, to bring you the best possible content. Blogging and writing about our hobby is a labour of love that we do in our spare time, after our day jobs. Tale of Painters is completely free, but if you would like to support our work, join us on Patreon for extra content and sneak peeks.
