    Hello everyone,

    Thank you to the moderator(s)/administrator(s) for approving my membership on such short notice. Because of the pandemic, I have not been able to participate in any of my other hobbies, so I have decided to adopt a new one--miniature painting, as you might have guessed! Still deciding upon my paints, brushes and other supplies as of right now, but I am very much interested in painting 1/16 and 1/35 WWII figures, dioramas and busts. This forum, as opposed to CoolMiniOrNot, seems to cater more to the historical miniatures demographic, so I look forward to interacting and sharing with you all now and in the new year to come!

    All my best,

    Hi there Lissories

    A BIG WELCOME to PF from me

    Great to have you with us

    Do ask any questions someone will know

    Lots of different sections to look at including traditional and 3 D sculpting , competitions , WIP's , References , Painting techniques and so much more

    There are threads in Welcome Aboard about how to do things on PF but feel free to message me always happy to help

    Look forward to seeing more of your artwork

    PF is more historical but fantasy and mini's etc are also very welcome infact anything with figures and of course Vignettes & Diorama ( we run a competition as well )

    Thank you for the warm welcome here as well as in the General Discussion forum, friend! As a child I used to visit my local gaming store, where I'd watch people play Warhammer (the original and 40K), board games and card games, but it hasn't been until recently that I've wanted to get involved in the hobby (of miniature painting). I have rated over a thousand miniatures on the CoolMiniOrNot website, however I cannot find such a feature on PlanetFigure--is there one? On your profile I clicked the album tab but there was nothing there. I would like to see your busts, if they are for public viewing and engagement.

    I am sure Nap will come up with a more comprehensive reply but while we can comment on peoples work, we do not rate it.

    We can give a "like" if we wish which I suppose is a kind of rating but we don't score points.

    Hi Lissories, you're very welcome here! Plenty of good advice & encouragement here, & we're a friendly crew.
    See my reply to "Where do you buy your 1/35 & 1/16 figures from?" in the other forum.

    Rated over a thousand miniatures on CoolMiniOrNot, of the over 250,000 postings, and although there's more on there, the concentration of talent is much higher on here. I'd wager the average miniature on CMON is a 6, whereas the average miniature on here is an 8 or 9. Thanks for the welcome!

    Thank you for the welcome, Bill. I don't care for points, but I think it might be a helpful tool for beginners to gauge their skill progression from one piece to the next. There's a lot more interaction and feedback coming from users on here than on CMON, which I consider a lot more helpful because the level of talent on here is incredible!
