  • Hello from S****horpe.

    Quick hello from S****horpe.
    (my inner nerd couldn't resist seeing what the forum swear filter would do with my hometown)

    I'm a long time lurker on a few forums and a "theoretical painter" - I buy models, read tutorials, own painting DVDs but never actually finish painting any miniatures.

    With the unpainted model count rising to 500+ and a full set of GW paints drying in a draw I need to start painting alot more. So I have set myself a load of hobby goals for the next year to get me painting again.

    I'm attending the NMM day at Golem tomorrow so maybe I'll meet some WAMPers there? I may be the one who manages to mess up the basecoat before we even get to the technical stuff like blending...

            Hi all! Thanks for the warm welcome.

            @Darklord - I have an idea for Wamped so an entry will be incoming. Slightly ambitious though as it requires me to paint 2 models and one of which I think will be partly white - eek.

            I'm wondering if there is another "theoretical painter" lurking out there who fancies a ladder challenge first? Theme "My First Miniature"... If anyone out there is up for it feel free to PM me or bung a comment on here (whilst I work out how this ladder thing works). Don't worry about the standard of painting - I'm just looking to stop messing about and get something finished!
