I watch this channel for both figure and model railway construction tips and ideas. Just watch, enjoy and learn. His scenery tips in particular can take your bases to the next level.

Black Magic Craft

235k Subscribers

This channel is focused on D&D style gaming rather than just miniature modelling but there’s a wealth of good stuff here that will give you ideas and tips.

Miniac

163k Subscribers

For raw painting tips, this is a channel to browse and learn from for miniature painters. Scott’s channel is particularly good for beginners to moderate skill enthusiasts with guides on wet blending, highlighting, shading and laying but there’s a good stuff for more experienced modellers too.

Tabletop Minions

I like Adam’s style, he shares a similar approach to me in many respect, but he’s a MUCH better mini painter 🙁 What I also like is that his videos don’t just touch on actual painting techniques but related matters, such as how to use a colour wheel and brush physics. Have a browse and see what you think.

Doctor Faust’s Painting Clinic

84.7k Subscribers

One of the longer established channels with 9 years of uploads, Doctor Faust’s Painting Clinic’s covers not just miniatures but model making and modelling in general and it’s a gold mine of excellent guides and tutorials not to mention inspiring showcases.

Darren Latham

Sadly, this channel by a Games Workshop designer is no longer being updated but all the videos are still there and definitely worth watching. What I really like about this channel is that rather than focusing on painting techniques, Darren shows you how to paint aspects of figures, such as power swords, battle damage on armour or textured cloth.

Vince Venturella

37.7k Subscribers

Loads of videos but it’s Vince’s Hobby Cheating play list that I find myself whiling away the hours watching.  Apparently there’s almost 241 videos in this playlist but I always find myself clicking pause and trying the techniques out so I’ve never got through them all.

Kujo

Grab your preferred beverage, plugin in your head phones and watch. I learn so much from this guy.

Dave’s Model Workshop

29.7K Subscribers

Not aimed at miniature or figure painting specifically but rather scale modelling however a lot of Dave’s tips will be very useful for those making vehicles for Warhammer 40k in particular.

Trovarion Miniatures

I learnt so much from Christoph and his channel. What I like is that he shows how to achieve particular effects rather than covering overall techniques. He’s been around for a long time, in a good way, and his experience shows in the tips.

I love finding new channels to learn from, what Youtube channels do you follow?
