Jerry Spratling, the founder and head painter at Dark Millennium Studios has had a passion for painting since the young age of seven where he regularly attended free for all painting at a local art center. While he was still in Elementary school he was introduced to Warhammer 40,000 by a friend who spoke of blood being for the blood god, and skulls being for the skull throne whilst walking around the field during P.E. So naturally, with already having a love for painting, this new world of miniature war gaming seemed like a perfect fit. As time went on, his paint jobs looked less and less like play-doh men, and closer and closer like those miniatures he saw in the White Dwarf magazine as a kid. Today he is the leader of Dark Millennium Studios and is in a perpetual state of improving on old techniques and learning new ones. The thrill of a challenging project, whether it be a full NMM group or an entire army that needs to be done a.s.a.p., is what keeps the passion and satisfaction of the customer alive.
