Brush Stroke 1

Exactly one year ago I started a newsletter for Broken Paintbrush called the Brush Stroke. The first few issues didn’t go out to many other than family, so I decided to post each week’s post here for posterity.

Welcome to the first ever Broken Paintbrush newsletter! I hope to bring new ways to help your hobby right to your inbox.


New Post: Foldio Review

Review of the Foldio 2 Photobox

This week’s post on Broken Paintbrush is a review of the Foldio 2 Light Box, a relatively large, but portable light box.

Photography: Build Your Own Light Box

No longer a lawn mower box by Marc

But you don’t need to buy a light box, Marc from Old School Gaming built a huge one out of a lawnmower box.

Painting: Tutorial on Painting Eyes

How to paint eye

Reaper’s Guide to Painting Eyes

I’ve been working on improving my skin tones lately and stumbled upon a Reaper Minis article on painting eye first.

Inspiration: Warlord Titan

Painted Warlord Titan

Warlord painted by Dave Thomas

Dave Taylor is a long time favorite painter of mine, and recently he recorded his build and paint progress of his Warlord Titan, a very impressive kit painted beautifully.


I hope you enjoyed the inaugural newsletter and found the links useful. This first issue was a little light (and originally didn’t have pictures!). As I got into the swing of writing these weekly emails, I started adding more posts, and even quick hobby tips.

  • As ever a nice collection.

  • Yes good readings

  • That Reaper article is a classic. I used it myself back when I first started painting their models. I wonder if Werner Klocke is still sculpting for them.

    • One of the things I love doing with Brush Stroke is finding old nuggets like this. I never got into Reaper minis but they have some lovely work.

  • Cool stuff, thanks for sharing. I especially like the warlord titan. “Warlord Titans: when money is not an object.”

    • You could replace that with Forge World in general 🙂
