The Pink Orc Story
The idea for what is now "Pink Orc Studios", started in early 2020 in Utrecht, the Netherlands, with the goal to create a professional platform for what we have already been enjoying for a long time:
Since mid 2020, we are cooperating with "Silver Heron Studios", formerly known as "Miniprinten.nl", who is supplying us with a sheer unlimited source of new minis, exposure and the opportunity to professionally pursue 3D printing and painting.
We love the Hobby and our mission is to give everyone the minis they deserve to get the MOST FUN out of their way of playing and/or collecting tabletop games and miniatures. We paint and play a lot of wonderful miniature games ourselves and since 2022 we are highly invested in organizing miniature painting workshops to teach this wonderful hobby to anyone interested.
Ever since the very beginning, our small team has been growing steadily and we are proud and extremely grateful to the people that joined along the way, no matter how big or small their contribution has been.
Stay Safe out there!

Meet the Team
Axel (Founder, Painter and Teacher)
I always liked fantasy, but I never embraced it ... until COVID hit and I needed a hobby!
As a trained stemcell scientist I worked for over 10 years in the academic sciences before founding PINK ORC STUDIOS in 2020. Never regretted it. The miniature painting part that is ;).
I'm German. But less organized and less punctual than my fellow brethren. I fell in love with the Netherlands in 2012 and never left. Which was quite a far move for me since I grew up in the tiny city of Ravensburg near the border to Austria.
I play Dungeons and Dragons, Warcry, KillTeam, Warhammer 40k and a plethora of boardgames. My favorite one: Spirit Island.
Bill (Painter and Teacher)
Hey, my name is Bill. I'm a miniature painter, American Football player and Chemistry/Physics tech support at a middle school.
I love to play Dungeons and Dragons and a big part of that is painting miniatures. Most of the tabletop games that I play are miniature based. Hence my passion to paint them up!
I love to play boardgames and have a drink with my friends. And if I had to chose two things that you can wake me up for at night I'd chose a good talk and some nice food. Especially the latter!
Duane (Painter, Teacher and Wargamer)
Hey, my name is Duane. I'm a South African miniature painter, Wargamer and trained Archaeologist currently working as a dental technician.
Having played Wargames for more than 20 years, miniatures have been a constant part of my life. I've dabbled in almost every Wargame that has ever been invented and painted up minis for almost all of them.
Hello everyone, my name is Kilian and I am 18 years old. I am studying restauration and decoration at Nimeto. I started miniature painting around 4 years ago.
I love to paint in my spare time and I am still learning every day to do it quicker and make the models stand out more. I also love to teach people the basics so they can try it out for themselves.

Annelot (Photographer, graphic design)
Hi there, I'm Annelot! Photographer and graphic designer with a twist. I started with cosplay photography in 2020.
With an eye for detail and love for TTRPG's, I would soon switch from real life-sized characters to tiny, tabletop miniatures as a product photographer.
In 2023 I was able to add music photography to my portfolio. Aside from that I love to illustrate and create graphic imagery fit for any type of brand.

Lulu (Eats paint, chews minis and sleeps ... a lot)
Hey, my name is Lulu. I'm a (at time of writing) 12 week old half cockerspaniel, half poodle puppy. I love to sleep underneath painting tables and find great enjoyment in biting ankles, chewing stuff (doesn't really matter what) and playing fetch.
People refer to me as the "Workshop Puppy". And I'm very confident that I can pull my weight within the company. It's only 4 kilos anyways.
If you ever come and visit, I love peanutbutter, liver-sausage and tuna-snacks. I also like walkies and sniffing butt.
