On June 30th, 2009 I (Thor) launched Creative Twilight.
I began the site as as place to generate interest, and ultimately sales, for my miniature commission painting. Then, on January 29th, 2010, I began blogging about Warhammer 40K, a game some friends got me into.
The site became a blog for all things Warhammer 40K. Over time I began adding tutorials, guides, and showing the painting work I was doing as well. I had also stopped doing commission work. It was fun, but I never found time for my own projects while doing it.
As Creative Twilight slowly grew, I had taken on a handful of authors to help me here, many of which were real life friends. As time has gone on, much has changed, but a lot has stayed the same.
The world of tabletop gaming has long been the core of Creative Twilight but it is less about gaming and more about this wonderful miniature hobby.
Over the years I have created a lot of miniature painting tutorials to help painters of all skill levels. I really enjoy teaching and helping painters. The reward for helping someone become a better painter is unmatched.
I have also branched out into covering woodworking and blacksmithing, the two hobbies that currently occupy most of my time. Life changes and Covid left me unable to game and as such my desire to paint dwindled. I rekindled my love of woodworking and also discovered how fun blacksmithing was.
You will also find I’m the only author left. While you will still find the great articles my friends contributed, I am the only one creating new content.
As such, things move slower here. However, I like to think that what I am delivering is quality content. The old adage of quality over quantity!
I would rather go months with no new articles and then deliver a really useful tutorial than post for the sake of posting.
We do offer advertising opportunities at Creative Twilight. If you’ve got a blog, a hobby product, maybe a Kickstarter, then I’d be glad to discuss advertising options. It just needs to be something related to the miniature hobby.
You can find more information on rates and how it works on our advertising page.
These are some of the awards Creative Twilight has received over the years.
