Want to start painting tabletop miniatures?

A lot of people will ask, “What is the cheapest beginner’s paint set for miniatures I can get?”

This is not the best question to ask when you’re first getting into painting tabletop miniatures.

Here’s why.

Buying the absolute cheapest paints can end up being a huge waste of money, because if it turns out you like painting minis you’ll immediately want to buy better paints.

You’ll go from Dollar Store paints to Walmart paints to weirdo craft store paints to god knows what.

It’s better to start off with a decent set of acrylic paints specifically designed to be used with tabletop miniatures.

It’ll save you a look of time, money and hassle in the long run.

And it will help you improve as a miniature painter more quickly as well.

With that being said, the best intro set for painting tabletop miniatures (such as Dungeons & Dragons) is the Reaper Miniatures Learn to Paint Kit Core Skills Set.

It comes with a good selection of core colors, two paint brushes, three minis to paint and a pamphlet with instructional videos on how to paint each one. It comes in a cool carrying case.

Best Beginners Tabletop Miniature Painting Set

The best part is you get all this for only around $30.

If you continue painting then you’ll have decent paints to use moving forward and if you hate painting then you’re only out $30 and you can sell or give the paints to someone else who’ll appreciate them.

You can get it here on Amazon or at your local hobby or tabletop games store.
