"Get it Painted" is going to be a series of DVD tutorials designed to make life easier for people that want to get their armies painted up to a good quality tabletop standard but don't have to spend months doing so. The idea came about when TTCombat was getting to its feet and we needed to get entire armies painted up fast so that we could do battle reports with painted armies (no-one wants to watch a battle report with unfinished models).
I managed to get the new Hunter/stalker done in under an hour with no issue what so ever, and I thought about making a collection of DVD's that will help people get their armies done without spending a lifetime doing so and to a standard they can be proud of. You can watch the tutorial on how to paint the Hunter/Stalker by clicking here. This will give you a rough idea of what some of the content will look like on the various DVD's in the collection.

The rest of the range will include the following:
Get it weathered! Volume 1
Get it Weathered! Volume 2
Get it Based! Volume 1
Get it Based! Micro Art
Get it Built! Volume 1
Get it Built! Volume 2
The entire "Get it Painted" range will initially consist of just the Vol.1's, in the future, we aim to do at least three volumes for each of the armies, and in some cases there will be a more in depth look at the armies, as an example we intend on creating Chapter specific dvd's...All of this will just depend on the popularity of "Get it Painted" as a whole.
In the initial release of Get it Painted you will be able to choose from the above mentioned DVD's as well as all of the Fantasy armies which is another 15 titles! There will also be two volumes of "Get it Weathered", "Get it based" and "Get it Built".
The idea behind this massive collection is to create a "Pick and Mix" selection of DVD's, so you collect imperial fists for 40k...You might want to buy, Get it painted Marines vol.1, as well as the more specific Get it painted Black Templars, now you already know how to build a model properly so you don't need Get it Built at all, but you've never really mastered how to base a model nicely so you might pick up Get it Based Vol.1 + 2, you'd also really like the weathered look on your miniatures but wouldn't know where to start so you might also pick up Get it Weathered Vol.1! Now you have a 5 DVD box set including everything you need to get your army ready for the battlefield and all for the bargain price of just £25 which is just £5 a DVD!
Which brings me nicely onto the price. There are loads of "How to paint" DVD's out there but we feel that the prices on most of them are less than reasonable, this hobby already costs us enough without having to spend silly money on painting tutorials, a lot of you may also be thinking, there are loads of painting tutorials on youtube that are completely free, while this is true it can be frustrating trawling through 100's of videos trying to find that one good one that is at the same skill level as yourself and is easy to understand, not to mention streaming videos on the net isn't always convenient, sometimes having a DVD you can play at your own leisure is much more convenient.
We do have plans in the future to cater for other games too. We appreciate that there are other popular tabletop games and we have a similar goal for these, for example, there's Warmachine, where we plan on making at least three volumes for each faction, Vol.1 containing all you need to paint your warjacks, Vol.2 containing all you need to paint units and Vol.3 will cover the colossal's and gargantuan'. We also want to cover the following games:
Dropzone Commander, Firestorm Armada, Dystopian Wars, Flames of War, Bushido and many more!
Each DVD will Contain at least 40 minutes of footage so you know your going to get a decent length product for your money!
