The first time I ever held a mini in my hands was back in 92. I was so enamored with this lead swordsman that the owner gifted it to me. A few years later I tried painting it with enamel paints and it wasnt a success.
Thanks to the internet the moment I've learnt that there was something called acrylic paints I have picked up painting miniatures in April 2014 and haven't stopped since then.
Each time I paint a mini I strive to try something new and learn from the experience however horrible the result may be.
However I have come to realize that I am no longer be able to improve my skill on my own and therefore decided to knock on these forums and I was delighted by the warm and encouraging welcome I received at the get go.
So, now I am off to paint even more and learn and learn and learn...
