Welcome to the very first miniature painting supply list for Mini Primetime, hosted by the incredibly-talented Will Friedle.
Our very first episode features Sam Riegel learning how to work with a limited color palette to convey a sense of depth by using either grey or purple tones and how to add texture through dry brushing. In case you missed it, you can check out our very first episode below.
To paint your own Nott the Brave miniature like Ian Phillips of Iron Tusk Miniature Painting, you’ll need the following paints. You can pick up your own Mighty Nein miniature set right now at shop.critrole.com, shop.critrole.co.uk or wherever Steamforged products are sold.
And now, on to Ian’s suggested supply list!

Mini painting handles are far from necessary for your mini painting needs, though some painters do find painting with them makes the hobby easier. Like almost everything involving mini painting, this is very much up to what works for you. Before purchasing one, it may be a good idea to visit your local hobby store and try one out before you buy one.

Though we have a lot of paints listed here, we want to remind you to follow your art heart. The paints listed above are just the ones we used, but this is your mini, so use whatever paints you would like.
Next week’s episode will feature the one and only Liam O’Brien learning how to convey character by creating realistic dirt, grime and corrosion effects. He’ll be painting his character, Caleb Widogast, our favorite dirty hobo wizard.
