Hobby Newbies – Basic Tools to Start Preparing and Painting Miniatures

Hi Guys,

I’ve recently got my mate Alan into painting minis, and whilst tutoring him on those first tentative steps I was amazed at the knowledge I was taking for granted – the questions that he was asking were all perfectly reasonable, but I think as experienced hobbyists we sometimes forget or don’t realise how much basic knowledge we’ve had to acquire.
