    Welcome Bryan. Andrew's link is as good a place as any to start, but you'll also find plenty of guys on here ready to chime in with help & advice. You'll also probably be able to find a wealth of information just from browsing the site.

    Vallejo or AK? So many paints on the market these days that things can get confusing sometimes. Some guys swear by this brand or that brand, but basically whatever works for you is "best", there is no right or wrong.

    Just practice & practice some more, try out different paints and techniques, and learn by doing. You'll probably make some mistakes along the way (we all do!) but when it all comes together it's very satisfying.

    Have fun!
