Two Thin Coats! Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy Returns

Every year we offer some unique prizes to every10th place finisher at Arc40k - the GOLD Award. In 2022 we had an amazing new sponsor join us and we were able to offer a special prize to many of the GOLD placegetters.

That sponsor was the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy and they kindly showed their support for our event by giving away subscriptions to their site as prizes. They return as a sponsor for our 25 Year Anniversary Event in 2023 and we're very pleased to have them back on board.


The Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy, or DRPA for short, is a Membership site where you can go to learn to paint your favourite miniatures. Whether you are a beginner or even an experienced miniature painter, the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy will teach you all the techniques you need to know to paint any model you desire.


Every week they add new, exclusive content that can only be found by their site members. The Painting Academy covers all manner of miniatures, techniques and advice, everything to help improve your painting skills. Currently there are more than 200 plus video tutorials



'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,' explained co-owner and presenter Duncan Rhodes.


DRPA has one simple aim - and that's to give members the skills to paint any miniature they want.

The team believe 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.


Roger Yates, Video Guy, Design and Co-Owner revealed 'I've spent nearly 19 years in the war-gaming industry and have over 15 years experience in video and film production, 8 years of that working with Duncan.

'We're excited to be able to deliver exciting content for our Academy Members that they find both achievable and inspiring.'


Between Duncan and Roger they have a wealth of experience and knowledge to help you on your journey. As a team, they have been producing and pioneering miniature painting tutorials for many years. They've taught thousands of people to paint by breaking down one simple barrier... Many say ”I can’t do it.” But Duncan and Roger believe you can. You can join their growing community and maybe see what you can achieve.


Painting Your Army is a key principle of Arc40k.


We award points for painting as part of finding our overall Champion. Painting judges and select our Best Painted Armies to win awards. The Parade of Armies starts every Arc40k weekend and that is where our players select the Player Choice Award - arguably Australia's most prestigious Army Presentation award.


Did we mention that Arc40k is Australia’s Premier Warhammer 40,000 Hobby Event…


So, having Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy onboard with their focus on helping everyone to paint is a really great fit as a sponsor and supporter of Arc40k. We are currently finalizing this year’s package and will be announcing how you might be able to secure an exclusive prize as we draw closer to the Arc40k weekend in March.


But right now we are please to call out a huge welcome Back to the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy!
