    Glad to be registered here finally and have enjoyed viewing all of your amazing work from the outside for quite some time.

    I am a currently recovering toy soldier collector who has recently rediscovered the joy of assembling and painting figures. I have been practicing on inexpensive 54 mm kits for a number of months and have just recently completed my first serious attempt and promise to share it with you all soon. I am finding that I now spend most of my non-working and non-parenting time painting.

    I hope to seek some of your advice as questions arise as I am very much a novice and doing an awful lot of experimenting with materials and techniques.

    See you around....

    Thanks for the welcome, Scott. We lived in St Paul years ago. Rented a dingy little apartment above the now defunct Ran-Ham bowling center over by Cretin Derham Hall HS at the time. Currently living down in Northfield. And yes, by all means I would like to hear more details on the group you've mentioned.

    Hey Dave here is the link to our group, we meet once a month in South St. Paul. The link should give you most of the info you need, I think our next meeting is Dec. 10th (Friday Night), our X mas get together- always a blast. Northfield- how far is that from the cities?
    Let me know if you need any more info I would be happy to help and have you join our group!

    Could it be due to the heritage? ;)
