For many of us in the hobby community, our Friendly Local Game Store has become a second home– a place where we can gather together and share the joy of tabletop gaming, painting, and role-playing in a welcoming and safe environment. They’ve brought us lifelong friends, lasting memories, and endless enjoyment.
In these uncertain times, we wanted to find a way to support the Friendly Local Game Stores that are struggling due to the COVID-19 Crisis. The result is this: The WizKids Take & Paint Program. A twist on our Paint & Take events, the Take & Paint program allows hobbyists to support their Friendly Local Game Stores and enjoy painting WizKids miniatures from the comfort and safety of their homes.
To get started, click here to visit the WizKids Take & Paint community hub. On this page you’ll find a map featuring a list of stores that have let us know that they are still accepting orders and are offering curbside pickup or delivery. In addition to this helpful feature, you’ll also find instructions on how to share your painted miniatures with the world with the #WKTakeNPaint hashtag.
It is our hope that, even as we remain at home, we can still find a sense of community, and connect, share, and support each other during these challenging times.
We hope you stay safe and healthy during this difficult situation.
