SorastroHello fellow hobbyists! My name is Mark and I’m just another hard-working dad who loves his kids. Once the children are in bed however, the paint brushes come out and I get to work creating the best miniature-painting tutorials I can. Working on the videos is immensely satisfying for me as it combines so many of my personal interests: digital photography, sound/video editing, musical composition, and of course—miniature painting, all of which combine to serve theme. With a professional background in education I also have a strong inner drive to broaden the inclusivity of the hobby, and through careful planning and presentation I hope to instill the idea that with the right tools and a little patience anyone can do it! It’s an honor for me to be featured here on the Esoteric Order of Gamers and I make heavy use of their excellent rules summaries (including most recently for Shadows of Brimstone). Happy painting!

If you’ve watched his first four tutorials, you’ll be familiar with the incredible professionalism of Sorastro’s videos. In episode 5 he tackles the Imperial officers, and along the way shares some fantastic tips on blending, highlighting and glazing. Sorastro bills this series as a ‘beginner’s guide’, but there are some great tips here that will stand you in good stead for when you start to move on to more complex figures and more advanced techniques.

Thanks again Sorastro!
