    Hello Planeteers,
    Just a quick intro, have been sitting on the sidelines of this forum for several years now and also non-committal to the hobby, but decided to get serious a couple of months back. It started in the seventies as a kid with airfix figures and kits, also loved watching all the old war movies and after many years discovered that it had never left me. My other interests lye in the arts, history and sports. So I'm looking forward to participating in the forums and meeting other members. Oh and I'm just posting this one up for Richie and co.

    Hi gents,
    Thanks for the welcome Tony and Nap. As you can see I've got this lovely looking shield up on the Lounge room wall, the wife got it for my birthday last year all the way from an african arts markets. She's about 1.5m in total, not the wife. I've always had a great fascination in the Zulu and Napoleonic periods as well as WII. That's not to say I don't appreciate other periods either, bit that's what seems to be what I gravitate towards. I'm doing a slight conversion of a 120mm verlinden 24th foot figure as a starter, probably from what I've read not a bad size to start with, its posted in the first time part of the site. Have bought some vallejo paints so it's first time for a few things with me. I'm enjoying the painting I have an arts background so it's not completely foreign to me. I'm up in Queensland so I'm looking forward to attending the QMHE next month as well.

    Hi Richie, have to admit being a first gen Aussie to English parents I don't have as much of a hate factor to the poms as some of my fellow country men. I might do a bit of fence sittin.

    Welcome to PF Stoffy. Nothing wrong with fence sitting so long as it doesn't have pointy bits on top :)
