    Just signed up and am eager to learn and improve my skills. Hopefully I can contribute in some way. I enjoy building aircraft, armor, but figures are at the top of the list. I am a voracious reader of military history of all periods with a focus on WWII. Researching uniforms, equipment, weapons, and the stories of the Soldiers that used them, is for me half the fun.
    I am awed by the work of painters and miniaturists out there, but living in west Texas one feels a bit secluded. I believe this medium will help close the gap. Thanks for having me and I look forward to interacting with you all!

    JOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How are you and a WARM welcome aboard!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!! I have someone to get together with and talk/paint figures with! :awesome:

    I am soooooooooooo looking forward to getting together with you and catching up on lost times.

    For those who don't understand, allow me to explain. I have known Joe for YEARS now. Joe was (and still is) a member of the El Paso IPMS club when I was first stationed here back in the early 90's. He was painting figures back when I was only building armor. Fast forward to today and Joe is now retired from the U.S. Army. His time and my time never seemed to cross to allow us to paint together. Blame the Army, not us. Now that Joe is retired and I will be soon as well, AT LAST!!!!! I have someone to get together and paint with (y).

    Joe, my old friend, congratulations on your retirement and I salute you for your service. Now, let's get down to what's really important. LET'S PAINT!

    Howdy Jim,
    Thanks for the salutations. I've got a 70mm Algerian Tirailleur, sculpted by Derek Hansen in progress right now. Maybe you can take a look at it and give me a critique (y).

    Would love to Joe. I can't make it to the meeting on Sunday. Duty calls...you know the deal. Let's set up a time next week and get together. Anytime is fine with me. Weekday or weekend.
