Hi there, this is Dave, the founder of the website you are currently looking at. If I have to summarise this in three words then it will be:
“Yelp for miniatures”
It’s that easy. Still interested? Awesome.
It was the result of decade-long miniature obsession, countless hours of browsing through Facebook groups such as Paint Hub for Wargames Miniatures & Models and one idea: building an online directory for hobbyists.
So Miniature Atlas was born, a place where commission painters, hobby retailers can come and advertise themselves, where hobbyists are provided a central repository for all things miniature-related.
We hope to build a specialised platform solely dedicated to miniature and related services.
With all said, welcome to the site!
What is Miniature Atlas?
You can say it is “Yelp for miniature hobbyists”, that is the primary goal of this website. However, there will be so much more down the road!
How does is work?
As a customer you can search nearby (or other areas) for stores and services (commission painting, 3D sculpting etc.) listed by business owners. Similar to Yelp, people can rate, review any shop or services they use.
As a business owner you can list your business for others to see and review. The goal is to provide a centralised place where customers can search and find what you offer.
Is it free to list my shop/service on your website?
Yep, listing your shop or service is free as long as you created a business account there. There will be paid features further down the line but listing will always stay free of charge.
What kind of businesses are on the site?
Given our experience we currently separate listings into four categories: 1) hobby shops, 2) commission painters, 3) 3D artists, 4) traditional sculptors.
