Nottingham has an excellent reputation in the war game and fantasy model making industries, and at NTU we're pleased to announce a repeat of this unique two-day course for enthusiasts who wish to immerse themselves in this world.

Led by Alex Huntley of Warploque Miniatures, one of the UK’s most exciting model-making companies, the course will teach you the skills to make dynamic figures that will stretch your creativity.

Over the two days you will focus on superheroes, bizarre animals or any other creature of your imagination.

The course is completely practical, so you’ll be engaging with a hands-on project from the start.

This course is open to anyone aged 16 and above.

What will I gain?

By the end of the two days you will have a model to take home to continue painting, and the knowledge of how to create more.

The course will also introduce you to the techniques used to produce miniatures for resin and metal casting reproduction.

This course is ideal if you are interested in the war game and model making industries.

You might already have a concept you want to develop and are looking for advice and new skills, or you might want to create models purely for pleasure and your own games.
