Kickstarter Tabletop Alert: The DMG Mini Painter System

6 min readAug 11, 2022

If you’re a TTRPG player, a tabletop wargamer, or just like to play board games, there are pretty good odds that you’ve painted a miniature before. And if you have, you probably wish that you had a nice, organized painting area, to make painting those minis easier and more enjoyable.

Enter the DMG Mini Painter System

Dogmight Games, makers of many an artisan-crafted GM screen like the one I recently reviewed, just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a modular, magnetic painting station made from fine wood. Pledges will be delivered in waves, and a minimum pledge of $20 allows backers to choose the exact pieces that they would like.

The Kickstarter campaign just launched, and will run through Tuesday, August 30th. You can pledge here.

DMG Mini Painter System Components

Note: My review is based on a prototype copy, so it is subject to change and may not reflect final component quality.

The DMG Mini Painter System consists of several different wooden components that magnetically interlock. They are available in 16 varieties of woods from around the world. The components vary in price depending on the rarity of each of the woods, and you can choose to mix and match different wood types per component. Dogmight Games sent me a large selection of the Painter System, all fashioned in Redheart, a type of redwood from South America.


The stand is the largest of the DMG Mini Painter System components. They are reversible depending on how you arrange your components, and can hold up to 35 paint pots, or a variety of miniatures and tools. Prices for these range from $70 for a North American Cherry wood, all the way up to $257 for a Central American Ziricote.
