    Hi, I'm Lee.

    I've lurked here for years to see the great examples of miniature artistry y'all post and I finally decide to formally join.

    I've built scale models for years but only recently attempted to seriously paint figures.

    I love the content here and hope to contribute while continuing to learn from all of you.

    I'm a paramedic in North Carolina, USA and an infantry veteran.

    Welcome to the Planet, Doc! And thank you for serving. I look forward to seeing your work.

    I got into painting figures from building models when I was a kid. Building Monogram kits especially, made me come to think of any piece of armor or airplane as incomplete without at least one crewman or pilot to go with the ordnance.

    Don't be apprehensive about painting figures, either. At the basic level, the skills are the same. You open the box. You clean the kit (maybe). You assemble the kit and prime it, maybe taking into account what can and can't be reached when it's in place. And you paint it. That's the point where things diverge a bit, but one thing is still the same between the two areas: practice. It really does make perfect.
