About

3d printed prototype
3d printed prototype

When painting miniatures, you cannot hold your miniatures with bare hands: You need a miniature handle. Today, there is no straight forward solution on the market: they are either too clumsy, not ergonomic, or overly expensive.

That's why we created RGG 360°, the first natural ergonomic handle for miniature painting. 

With our unique design, you will be able to hold your miniature for long and comfortable painting sessions. No more cramps, no more unnecessary movement, just having fun painting.

RGG 360° has been designed by painters for painters and developed with the feedback of pro-painters. 

It is already considered as the best tool available.

Vous pouvez trouver une VF de la campagne sur le site de Redgrassgames/holder


RGG 360° is the only natural ergonomic handle designed to create the best connection between you and your miniature, help you adopt the best painting position and minimise unnecessary movements.
The added benefits are greater stability, better precision and minimised fatigue to paint for hours. 


Many do not pay attention to the handle of their holder. It is however at the heart of your painting experience. The handle is how you connect with your miniature. It needs to be perfect. We perfected it for months!
RGG 360° is the only handle designed to fit naturally in your hand with its unique shape. 
As there is no strain on your hand and fingers, you won't have to move them and you can enjoy full control of your miniature.
Once you have it in your hand, there is no turning back.

360° rotation axis is not an afterthought, it is inherent to the natural ergonomic design. Thanks to the handle, you can rest comfortably your wrist on the desk when painting. The 360° rotation allows you then to access any part of your miniature fast and reliably. No more parasitic movements. You will rediscover the joy of painting.

No additional accessories needed. You have the best handle and the best mounting solution for the best price! Exclusive, save on the retail price, only 10€ a piece during the KS.


Adopt the best painting handle, for a pleasant, fun and perfect painting session

Free shipping for pledges above 35€ for USA, CA and Western EU; A flat fee of 5€ worldwide collected during the pledgemanager in all other cases. More details in the shipping section below.

A straight simple handle does not fit your hand comfortably. To achieve a good quality painting, you need to stay focused and to hold your miniature naturally without causing hand fatigue. For that, RGG 360° is slightly curved and designed to feel very natural in your hand. No odd shape. That's why the sculpted handle has been designed to sit comfortably in the hand.

RGG 360° has been tested by many pro painters, painters and even by a 9 years old (Vivien's daughter) to ensure a comfortable handling for most hand size.

Quite the opposite because the hand on the handle helps improve your overall precision.

Also it offers more control and allows you to get around your miniatures without removing your hand from the handle. This innovation will help you achieve a better painting on every angle- Effortlessly

RGG 360° can rotate easily yes, but once you stopped the rotation it will just stay in place. You don't need to hold it with your thumb.

Thanks to our custom made mounting putty, you can fix a large range of miniatures from your favorite games! The putty is of course reusable, we have been using the same putty for months. 

Square, round, oval up to 55mm
Square, round, oval up to 55mm

Round, square, small, large, exotic bases… miniatures bases come in many shapes. When designing RGG 360°, we tried some mechanical designs and all kind of sticky materials but they were either non adaptive, clumsy, heavy, none reusable... anyway, they always had disadvantages.

 So we have created a custom made mounting putty, as the perfect mounting solution for your miniatures: Reusable, adaptable, safe, for long. We have been testing the putty for several months, and it never dried out.

With 15 grams included with the handle, you have 3x the amount needed to stick your miniatures.

  • Made in Europe.
  • RGG 360° is weighted for optimal stability.
  • Additional custom-made mounting putty included: Our orange putty was customized to have the perfect stickiness and consistency.
  • High quality axle of rotation: We tried it all, plastic friction, ball bearing... but nothing compare to our special designed axis. It will provide a smooth, accurate and fun rotation, and will last up to several hundred thousand of rotations. Rotate it freely with your thumb, it will stay in place during your painting. Axle of rotation will be graded up to 500k+ rotations.
  • Made of PREMIUM plastic: we selected ABS as the best plastic for our handle, due to its density and toughness. The weight will just be perfect in your hand and the handle will last for long
  • Graining and engraving on the plastic for optimal grip: Instead of smooth plastic, we decided to add some areas with slight engraving, to improve the handling.
Colour selection available during the pledge manager

Pro painters understand and have come to expect advances on miniature tools. All those who tried it said it just feels right and gives a lot of comfort when painting.

"[...]  Once you’ve got used to the rotating platform, may end up being one of those features you never knew you wanted." Sorastro's painting

"[...] RGG 360° fits better in the hand and the 360° feature is really a great help, which ensures a lot of comfort. For me personally it is the better choice." Bruckenkopf online (DE) 

"[...] The bearing (axle) is easy but it is not too “loose” so you will not be afraid to move your mini just by moving your brush or removing your hand I repeat, for me it’s very well done." Le temple de Morikun (FR)

"[...] the handle is excellent. This is now my default paint handle. I don't reach for the GW or other brands as much as possible. Totally recommend this handle for any painter !!" War of sigmar 

"[...] The key feature and the best thing about this holder is the fact that just with the touch of your finger you can actually turn around  so when you airbrush in a miniature you can literally be   airbrushing and just touch the top of   the holder with your thumb and you can brush all around  [...] it's also nice to obviously hand brush and use a 360° feature of this holder now" Orcpainternerd 

"[...]Thanks again to Redgrass Games for the use of the fantastic painting handle. [...] I think this is a great little tool and it genuinely surprised me how much of a difference that little pivot at the top there made." Sonic SledgeHammer 

"[...] The product is really good, and the rotation feature adds a major product to the market. [...]  this is an essential tools for me!" Salaise Figurine (FR)

"[...]If you want the spin and a nice grip. This is absolutely spot on!" WatchitPaintit

"[...]The size and grip are really nice and comfortable and fit nicely in my hand." Shoshie's magnificent mini painting

Risks and challenges

We have gained a lot of experience thanks to our first Kickstarter project last year : The Everlasting wet palette. The first KS was a very complex project, coordinating many different suppliers worldwide. But it was a big success with more than 8.000 backers. We have learned from this experience how to create a technical product with a lot of backers from all around the world . For our second Kickstarter campaign, RGG 360° will be made in Europe. This new Kickstarter project is driven by one goal: to create a high-quality miniature holder for your painting sessions.
As with any production, there are risk concerning the time needed for production and the control of quality. We however believe one point is key and necessary to our project, and will be worth delaying the production, in case the quality is not satisfactory : the quality of the rotation axis. We will focus a lot of attention on this production part. Sample productions showed excellent performance, we will make sure that the mass production rotation axis will be on par with it.
