Miniature painters unite!

Bring down your paints, miniatures, models, and brushes.  We will be holding an open workshop in The Forge all day for any who wish to paint, build, or watch.

Here is a chance to ask questions and share tips with other miniature painters and builders. Whether you are just beginning and would like to learn more, or you are a veteran who would like to exchange ideas, there will be something for all.

We will have an airbrush spay booth set up, you can learn about airbrushing and give it a try. 

Talk minis, talk colors, talk conversions....   Hope to see you there!
