Aug 26 2014

Garfy kindly shares a whopping 24 high quality photo painting tutorials for the Hobbit Strategy Battle Game.

I’m a huge fan of this range of models. I’ve been creating these tutorials since the The Hobbit boxed game was released because there wasn’t the support for the range. It’s been a labour of love, but the feedback has been incredible and kept me going.  Browse all the minis and check out the detailed tutorials on any on the ones you fancy.
