"To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it." -- Kurt Vonnegut

Here at the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy we have  one simple aim. To give you the skills to paint any miniature you want. We believe  that anyone can paint and get a result that they are happy with. The only thing it requires is patience and someone to point you in the right direction.

Between the two of us, we have a wealth of experience and knowledge to help you on your journey. As a team, we have been producing and pioneering miniature painting tutorials for many years. We have taught thousands of people to paint by breaking down that one simple barrier….”I can’t do it.” Well, we believe you can. We hope you decide to join us and our growing community and we cannot wait to see what you can achieve.

“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt


"I've been working in the war-gaming industry now for 16 years and in all that time the most fulfilling thing for me has been teaching people how to paint miniatures. I love being able to help people achieve the painting ability they've always wanted."
