About us

At Art-W Studio we are dedicated to the professional painting of miniatures on commission. Our job is to provide a complete assembly and painting service and a unique experience throughout the whole process, from the box to the display case.

But most importantly, we understand this fantastic world because…. We are passionate about the hobby too!

So much so that we decided to jump -without a parachute- to professionalize the sector and give painters and modellers the opportunity to make a living from the hobby.

In short, a job done by gamers for gamers. We are waiting for you!

In Art-W I enjoy doing what I like the most, I get the opportunity to share knowledge with my colleagues, learn and improve every day. Every miniature I paint has a little bit of me in it, and that shows in the final result.

My philosophy is "do what you like the most, but do it with all your strength, with all your soul, and as best as you can".

I started painting when I was about 8 years old, not knowing that it would unleash my passion for miniatures. I stopped painting miniatures when I was 16 to "focus on more important things", and I came back a couple of years ago, knowing how to thin paint.

Since then, I have tried to give my best in each miniature, learning more with each one.

I got into this hobby about 15 years ago, and I still have the same eagerness as I had on the first day. Enjoying equally painting, modelling, lore and playing.

Painting commissions for 10 years, I have been able to turn it into my profession, always looking for the best result.

My first contact with the hobby was with my brother's HeroQuest and the first LOTR kits. It wasn't until I was an adult that I really fell in love with the hobby, back in 2018. Since then, I've been practicing, polishing and discovering new techniques.

I love creating decadent environments on miniatures and building a narrative with every detail!

I started painting miniatures when I was a teenager and little by little it became more than a hobby. Nowadays, I strive to capture each client's ideas in a coherent and meticulous way.

Learning and enjoying each stage of the creative process, something that I believe, is reflected in the quality of the final result.

Since I started with Star Crusade I have been enjoying the different aspects of the hobby. Usually focusing more on the background and especially the painting and kitbashing of miniatures.

My passion is my work, every new miniature is an opportunity to learn more and go all out in every figure I paint.

I entered this Hobby 25 years ago, thanks to HeroQuest. From the first day I was passionate about backgrounds, kitbashing and painting. Always trying to improve my skills.

After several years of experience painting on commission. I was able to turn my hobby into my profession.

I love to surprise the customer with a finish that exceeds their expectations.

Empecé a pintar con unos 8 años, sin saber que desataría dentro de mí la pasión por las miniaturas. Dejé de pintar miniaturas con 16 para según el yo de esa época "centrarme en cosas más importantes", y volviendo hará ya un par de años, sabiendo diluir pintura.

Desde entonces he intentado dar lo máximo de mí en cada miniatura, aprendiendo más con cada una.

I have never painted a miniature in my life, yet I am one of the pieces that make the Art-W gear work. I make sure that everything goes as it should, I manage the logistics of the studio, the supply of material, relations with brands and collaborators.

From the moment an order arrives to the moment a package leaves the studio, it's under my control.

I painted my first Warhammer box when I was 9 years old. I was collecting for several years and stopped at high school, then I took it up again during university, painting between exams. It was then when I did my first commissions and as a result Art-W Studio was born.

I am in charge of the organization of the studio and ensure that all projects exceed the expectations of our clients.

What inspires us

Grimdark aesthetics and post-apocalyptic fantasy inspire us a lot, indeed, but we want to reach new heights and create an unprecedented community through Art-W, giving space to all hobby lovers.

We want to add value to the sector through various initiatives, masterclasses on painting, modelling or scenography, organisation of events and tournaments… And at the same time support other initiatives within the hobby. Although all in due course…

Our goal

We want to be a reference in this hobby worldwide. We are aware that we are setting the bar very high. But if you have seen some of the projects we have done, the service we offer and what our customers say about us, you will understand that this goal is achievable.

2019

October / February

It starts not long ago, when a young hobbyist is encouraged to paint miniatures as a hobby from home. With this, the opportunity arises to offer this service to people who require it.

2020

March

With the arrival of the month of March, the Pandemic comes along with an unexpected lockdown. This makes us think about creating this project as something bigger, and with the help of a childhood friend, we decide to create a website.

August / December

We decided to look for professional painters and reorganise the project to offer an exceptional service. We rethought the strategy and moved to new facilities, creating our own style.

2021

February / September

We refurbish the premises and create a new brand image. We contact Warhammer to get a commercial collaboration, which means more and better advantages for our clients. There is a big increase of clients and projects, which leads us to hire more painters and to work with a full-time permanent staff.

2022

January / December

We continue to expand the team, we start working with foreign media and work with international clients, reaching clients on all 5 continents.

2023
