One of my buddies Chris Dubuque, known as Jawaballs to most, launched a Kickstarter the other day to produce a series of six How-To-Paint videos!
These are aimed at real world painting, not the stuff you see on other DVD's that is mostly unbelievably hard, though beautiful to look at just the same.
No this these will be video tutorials for the rest of us, and if I know Chris well enough, they will rock (he is an art teacher after all)!
Hey Folks! I started producing How to Paint tutorials about six years ago, and in that time, have received tens of thousands of comments and emails from dudes thanking me for helping them with their hobby.
Well, I figured it was time to revamp my products. And now is your chance to show your support for me!
My skills have improved, and new paints are available, so here you go!
The Jawaballs Way: How to Paint Wargame Miniatures!
One. Yellow and Red: I will paint a Lamenter, Blood Angel and Khador Battle Mechanik Officer in high definition.
Two. Blue and Green: I will paint a Cygnar Journeyman Warcaster, Ultramarine, Terminator Librarian, Dark Angel and Tyranid! Phew that is going to be a huge set.
Three. Bone and Wolf Grey: I will paint a Deathwing Terminator, Cryx Bone Jack, and Space Wolf.
Four. Black and White: The two hardest colors to paint! I will paint a Ravenwing Biker, Menoth Warjack model, and White and Black Death Company models using the Jawaballs techniques.
Five. Detailing and Hand Painting: I will paint eye lenses, power weapons, lightning effects, scopes, banners, scrolls and hand painted insignia, numbers and skulls just to name a few!
Six. Hobby and tools: I will cover the tools of my trade and demonstrate in depth how to make several different bases and a competition level display board!
How is that for a comprehensive set???
Each DVD is going to be a full function DVD with menus and a full color printed disc in a compact, full color eco sleeve. I estimate no less than four hours of instruction PER DISC!
What is a kickstarter?
This is a fund raising website to promote new business and projects. Essentially you pledge to preorder your discs. Once I have reached my goal, the order becomes reality and you are charged for the purchase. I then collect the cash and get the DVDs produced, then mailed out to you. I set the goal of this kickstart at 7000 dollars. Each disc will cost about 1150 to have printed and mailed to me in bulk. I will then ship the discs to you, within the US, at no additional cost. Shipping world wide will cost a few extra bucks. You will have a chance to pick your disc of choice.
The DVDs will be zoned for US, so you foreigners will have to adjust, though I am sure you are used to that.
So go ahead and check out my Kickstarter and get yourself some new painting DVDs and help me out at the same time! Also included in the top tiers of the kickstarter are chances to get yourself a custom painted HQ or Jawabanner at a nice discount. You can't lose!
EDIT: I am working on a new way to reliably provide digital content, so I created digital options if you prefer that way. Stay tuned for details!
