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!

Darth Vader is an interesting painting challenge, not only for all the black in his outfit, but for his red light saber and its reflected light. Once again Sorastro rises to the challenge and shows us all how it’s done. I’m not sure if I have the patience to do such a stunning job on my boardgame miniatures, but it’s fantastic to see these techniques so beautifully explained.

Exceptional work Sorastro! If there’s one thing that’s always appreciated here at the EOG, it’s a perfectionist.
