    I'll second not getting paint on them. And I'm kind of a slob (spastic smh) when it comes to painting. They all look as good as the day I received them in the mail.

    Just a bit more on the new show for DLG: Here's the opening video for the show (for some reason - it doesn't want to work embedded, but the full show does) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/643702153?collection=3L8uf54jFhYXMw And here's the whole episode where they discuss the setting, their characters, etc. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/643456610

    @Konas - hopefully this is ok that I am promoting this. If not - feel free to remove the post. Not so much a lumberjack sighting - but just trying to push a little for my friends at Devil's Luck Gaming. They will be starting a new campaign on 6/13 -- and in support of both Black Lives Matter, and Gay Pride/Wrath month, they will be making a donation to the ACLU in the amount of either all live donations they receive, or the highest number of viewers they receive for the stream. So if you have time - please stop by to watch some amazing story telling and role-playing, in full costume.

    @Barb Bliss Thank you for all the detail!! Great to hear that you find them a good weight and size for long sessions, that was one of my biggest questions. I think that size will work for me, too. Also sounds like the wire is very intelligently designed, per DMG's usual, and I'm glad to hear that the cork is replaceable. The dog in your photo looks great! Sounds like you've been having a great time with the painting handles. @WxCougar Thanks for info! Glad to hear it's comfortable for you and that even a large mini is holding on securely with just the tack and cork, very promising. Also good to get corroboration on the wire being easy to move, I frequently hop around to different places on the mini as I work, so I was concerned a fixed wire might get in my way. Thanks so much for the info, guys! Extremely helpful. I've had my eye on the mini painters since they came out, but I was planning to hold off until I could hold one myself at Origins. Given the situation, though, I'd like to support Dog Might sooner rather than later. I think I'll get a couple!

    I am working on a light weight (Bones mini) that is large sized with my paint holder. I bought some Loctite Fun Tak and after a bit of working around with it, its sticky enough to keep the dracolisk mini in place (at first it did try to move a bit but now its not). I have only worked for about an hour so far - so no real feedback yet on length of time. But I have smallish hands and it feels really good to hang onto with my left hand. I have not had a chance to use the hand rest yet, but it moves around easy to get out of the way for big sweeping strokes (I am doing base paint so no details yet ). The wood I am using is black walnut and its not heavy at all. I haven't tried the katalox one yet.

    Hey there. Nice to "see you" again. I have 2 now and another 2 waiting for DMG to be able to get back to work and ship. So you can see from that that I really like them. I tend to work on a "block" of minis at the same time so I can use up paint/wash on multiple minis at a given time, and don't get stopped because I have to wait for something to dry. The shaft is 4.5" and the middle of the ridge near the bottom is about an inch higher off the bottom. I don't have a tape measure, but my ruler shows 1" across at the widest spot. If they had a female version that was about .5-.75" shorter, I would buy that instead, but I don't think the size is too big for my hands. I have relatively medium female sized hands. Definitely smaller than any of the guys in my gaming groups. I've got some arthritis starting to settle into my top knuckles, and for me, the the width around is perfect for me. I can paint all day, and my hands don't bug me at all. I usually have my pinkie riding in the ridge near the bottom, but sometimes I feel the need to move my hand higher and drape my index finger over the wire. I'd been used to using pill bottles, and this is an easier grip for me, but the biggest adjustment was remembering that you want to put the handle back on the base, and not just set it down on the table. I'm used to it now, but it took a while. Kind of like when I had lasik on my eyes, and was still reaching for my glasses in the morning for a while. Finding the base is nothing compared to how often I dumped over a pill bottle (even with change in it). The minis I'm painting are not large, but I have no problem with the wire being in the way. You can spin the handle around. The top of the cork is the same size as my dungeons doggies (most of them) and cats in the catacombs minis. I have free access to the bottom parts of the mini (unless the mini would have no access regardless of what holder you used). I've painted about 5 minis on each handle, and the corks look as good as the day I got them. They arrived with an extra cork. I'm sure you would be able to get replacements if needed. (@konas said as much to me when I shared that concern with him when I tried it out as a beta) The biggest surprise is that I haven't slopped any paint on them yet. I can be kind of a spaz with the paint brush. I'm digging using the top part of the wire support when doing real detailed work on the top half of the mini. When I'm working on the bottom half, I do the drape over the bottom of the wire trick. As far as weight, it's pretty light. I have a Mora one and a Redheart one. About the same weight as 2 empty pill bottles with lids, but lighter than 1 pill bottle full of change. I haven't done any medal minis, but I've found the cork holds just as good or better than my pill bottle lids did with the blue or orange mounting stuff. Maybe someone else can speak to using them with metal minis. This bad boy is pretty big, and I had no problems with him.
