We talked with the guys from Army Painter, Bo and Jonas, to talk about the history of Army Painter and how it all came together for them...and what lies ahead too.

Interesting chat “Quickshade is not cheating”

That makes me feel a lot better about myself paintingwise 😉

@Destiny is a “sneaky ****er”….. epic coment of the weekend so far pmsl
Liking the stance that the way forward is to just keep doing what they do well, nice to see a company that doesn’t want to change stuff just for the sake of “progress”.
Fantastic to see that these guys are such enthusiasts.

When I seen Bo for the first time on Friday I though corporate sales person. Throughout the weekend I can see I was very wrong in such an awesome way! Can hear the passion.

Is Army Painter hiring?

Yeah, I knew a lot of uptight, sanctimonious fu…uh, strongly opinionated individuals who looked down on the whole dipping/quickshade method and the people who used it. Never made any damn sense to me.

What a great story, and what nice guys. I must admit I have only started using Army Painter products since I got back into the hobby but I have been impressed with every one I have purchased.

They seem like a great group of guys. I understand that there are a lot of people who really enjoy spending 20-30 hours on each mini. I really like that there is a company who says “You don’t have to do that if it is not your thing.” Get em painted, get em on the table, and have fun! This weekend very likely has made me an Army Painter convert! I really hope I can find these guys at a Con in the US this season.

Army Painter is absolutely amazing, love your product! In the future is there a chance that you will bring a facility to the US? All you guys need to do is get some of those specialty, effects types of paints. Blood, rust, verdigris stuff like that maybe a textured paint or two maybe a filler for the gaps in the models. Love you stuff great work guys.

Agreed. Effects paint would be awesome and make pushing your miniatures’ quality a bit further without spending ages.

I have been using Army Painter for several years now, and they are by far my favorite paints. And no, I am not saying this to win a bundle. I actually just got another one last month, as well as a veterans set, as payment for working on some friends stuff. The color tones coming out are great. They make for some cool shading and effects. Great work guys. Hope for a great future for you.

I agree. They need a few more effects, but their paint range is great.
