The Hobby Holder, a versatile, all-in-one miniature painting holder and grip system that’s not just for gamers but for hobbyists of all kinds. The Hobby Holder is a better way to paint miniatures, period.

There are so many awesome miniature games on the market right now like Kingdom Death, Shadows of Brimstone and Descent to name a few as well as some great RPGs (anyone else excited about Starfinder?) and tabletop and wargames. Not to mention all those Bones miniatures from Reaper that will need more than a little bit of paint.

I wanted to create an all-in-one tool to help get you to your game faster while improving your technique and making painting faster and more comfortable.

Ideal for painting, sculpting, model building and more by providing ultimate control and maximum comfort!

Accepts 28mm Plastic Bottle Caps and Other Popular Painting Base Options

Accepts standard 28mm soda caps; Games Workshop - Citadel ™ Paint Caps; Privateer Press - Formula P3 paint caps; and 20mm cork inserts.

Max P. – “It’s a well thought out, lighter version of the home made holders I’ve used for years. It was comfortable. It felt like something that should come in a fancy paint kit. It specifically helped getting even coverage when I used a washes to bring out details and add low-lights in larger pieces. Being able to easily see the piece from all sides meant I could detail the base as a unit without going back to fix missed spots made the pieces I painted look more cohesive.”

John S. – “…a very nicely designed tool. Really enjoyed using it and I have already backed the kick starter. … really looking forward to the injection molded vice 3-D printed version.”
