Casey Alden

 

Casey Alden is an American YouTuber; the host of the YouTube channel eBay Miniature Rescues, which is all about finding models that have seen much better days and restoring them to their former glory. He is also a co-host of the hobby podcast Paint Bravely, which aims to help painters think a little differently about the hobby, and have as much fun painting minis as humanly possible. Casey has been painting and rescuing miniatures since the mid-90s but took a break until just a few short years ago when he started his channel. After it began to take off, he made the leap to full-time YouTuber and hasn’t looked back since. He lives in northern Nevada with his wife and two children.

Casey will be teaching workshops at Soonercon and judging the miniature painting competition.
