Welcome to the Grimdark Compendium!
The Grimdark Compendium is an ever-evolving collection of video painting tutorials that will attempt to cover nearly the entire range of Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar miniatures. As the GDC grows, through the good graces and support of the community, you will be able to find a more and more extensive list of video painting tutorial that covers each faction/army/chapter within the Warhammer Universes. These painting tutorials will be created by Zatcaskagoon Miniatures and painted in his ever-popular grimdark style.
How is the GDC funded?
The GDC is funded solely through the support of the community, people like you who take interest in the miniature painting hobby and are gracious enough to back each crowdfunding structured Grimstarter.
What are the funding goals for each Grimstarter and what do these budgets cover?
The funding goal for each Grimstarter will be determined by the size and cost of each series. This goal will cover the procuring, assembly, and painting of models and other materials. This funding goal will also cover the time invested in the creation of all of the educational material associated with the series.
What is included in a “series” ?
Each series will typically cover the various aspects found on the models from any given faction (armor, skin, cloth, metals, etc) and a basing tutorial. Our focus will be to keep up with Games Workshop releases and offer painting tutorials on exciting new miniatures.
What will a single video include?
Each video will be a full length, step by step demonstration, that explains the processes, applications, and products used in the painting of each aspect of a miniature.
Will there be different levels of paint qualities demonstrated?
No, we will be painting all models, examples and even troops, to the same level.
How long will each funding campaign last?
Each Grimstarter campaign are set up for 60 days.
If I want to get a refund can I get my money back?
Yes, we will be happy to refund pledges up until a campaign has ended. No refunds will be given after the content releases.
What will you do with the models once the campaign is completed?
All of the models will be given away as rewards for higher level support tiers. These give away supporter slots will be limited to ONE per model.
Are you going to sell the video painting tutorials on your website?
Yes, we will be selling the videos painting tutorials to the public after the campaign has ended for 9.99 USD per video. However, at least one video (usually a troop video) will be free to the public.
How will this work with your Patrons from Patreon?
In the past, I have given the video series to Patrons as part of their patronage. Going forward, Grimdark Compendium entries will be exclusive to backers of the project and patrons will receive a different set of videos on Patreon.
How will you deilver the videos
As of 5/17/2019 Video Tutorials will now be delivered as a bundle once the project has been completed.
Are there other ways I can help besides giving money?
Yes, you could promote this website and share the links of any or all Grimstarters. The more we are shared on social media, the more the Grimdark Compendium is known, the quicker we can get you the content you desire.
