Painting guide index

Because I was bored, and tired of digging through google search results and the Warhammer Official Instagram page, I figured I’d spend sometime collating all of the ‘Eavy Metal, Battle Ready and White Dwarf painting tips and guides. They’re roughly sorted by game and all of the links go direct to the relevant Instagram page.
