The son of an avid scale modeler, I grew up with model building and painting as a regular pastime. It wasn't until the early 90s that I found Warhammer 40k and started painting my first Space Marines. A lucky find at a swap meet, in the form of a box full of various Games Workshop models, introduced me to Orks, Eldar, Tyranids, and the Imperial Guard. I've been painting ever since.
I spent a couple of years painting models, selling them on ebay, and then buying some more. In addition to Games Workshop I also painted Rackman Miniatures, Warmachine, and Confrontation. I did a little bit of commission work too. It wasn't until 2013 that I first learned to play 40k. Although I don't play very often I'm constantly building my armies.
Lately I've been branching out into other armies and other model manufactures. I've also started to enter the competitive painting/modeling circuit picking up a few wins in the process. Along the way I've learned a lot from hobby magazines, other hobby blogs, and my father. My goal is to share the techniques and skills that I've learned along the way with other modelers and gamers.
