    Name's Leo, 31 yrs. old, father of 2 (4 yrs and 16 months), work admin for an international University and attend same university seeking an MS in Environmental Management..doing ok so far and trying to tie a previous BS in Zoology and a BA in Social Science together...not sure how that's going... Anyway, used to be a zookeeper but it didn't end well

    I am about to celebrate a 9 yr anniversary with my wife and we have, so far, lived through fire (Anyone hear of Waldo Canyon, didn't touch us, but got close) and flood (Our second apartment flooded when the fire sprinkler broke) so we are halfway through the four horseman. I forbid her from ever getting pregnant again since she spent a total of 4 months in the hospital between our 2 children before giving birth and that's not fun...so famine may have visited....neither child is a demon though, so that's good

    ..got into miniatures in college. Had a couple of friends that were into DnD and one played GW, but we all got into it when Chainmail came out...Good game, bummed when they switched to the collectable game...clickies suck!!!!!! Grew up with Garage Kits and was a member of Testor's model club, and there are at least 3 houses across America that used to have glue stains on the Carpet and pieces of plastic melded to the tile floors.

    Nowaday I'm more of a hobbyist than a player, but I paint Warmachine (Cygnar), play/paint battletech (yes, it still exists and it's the reason I joined here), and have been on an eight month hiatus for reason described above somewhere from painting...meaning it's been a year and a half since my buddy commissioned me to paint an Eldar Skimmer. It's almost done...just like it was a year ago....

    You may notice I haven;t posted anything in the gallery....just like a 16 yr old who can't use a urinal because his older brother showed him a Ron Jeremy movie....I'm afraid to show you mine because I've seen some of yours....(also for this reason, I say we nickname scores of 5.0-6.0 the gold star! )

    Other hobbies include sleeping (finally), reading books (currently into the Hunger games, finally...no I haven't seen the movie, but love the Greywalker series by Kat Richardson), big TV buff and enjoy hanging with my family when I can....

    So yeah, call me a loudmouth lurker and I'm ok with it....


    maybe for that reason I have to ask...Liz, you mention your fiances' physique in your signature but not your own...why not?

    I'm pretty sure both Dragonsreach and RogerB might have something hilariously witty to say here.

    Lets just say age has taken it's toll. Gravity is not the friend of large chested women. But considering I'm 52 (Roger won't let me admit that. He demands I say I'm 42. Says I'm only 42 and I'm amazonian/mother goddess in physique. He's so nice to me!) I'm in ok shape I guess.

    Oh, and that quote in my signature isn't from Roger. It's from Dragonsreach. I tend to grab quotes from this board that tickle me and add them to my sig. Be warned!

    Hi I'm Mark, and as you can see I'm new here. I'm 30yrs old and was painting from the age of 10 through to 13 when I stopped and only in the last two weeks have I picked up a brush and started to paint again.
    I live in the UK in Hampshire, I do not play table top games I just like the minis to paint, however I'm a huge PC gamer and have spent far too much money on hardware last part being a new 7970 GPU.

    A long list of minis to paint and new techniques to learn and just re-learning the painting skills again. 17yrs out of practice.

    I'm glad to be back. And I'm happy to bring a smile to your face although I think there were a LOT more people involved in that!

    I am who I have always been.

    Glad to see Tracy, Becca (when the Frack did you get to be 26?) and Liz back.

    Just for those who don't know my history it's carved in Ancient Ogham on the side of rocks. I'm 56.
    Started models around age 9-10 painting them around 12, continued during my school years and early adulthood, kinda developed away into photography for a long time and eventually picked up models again when I moved down to the Blackpool area and was bored during evening shift, found GW and dwarves and there's alot of water and a Sh*tload of cash under the bridge since then. (FOXTROT just worked out that was 1990!)

    Well, if we're all ponying up to the bar.

    I'm Kevin, maker of trouble and professional people pisser-offer.
    If you're driving around central Florida and the road is littered with orange barrels and cones separating you from slow men working, I may be involved.

    In my off hours (which seem to be getting rarer), I fish, shoot, play with airbrushes and little metal toys.

    P.S. I have nothing to do with the mouse house, but if you're visiting, give me a ring and I am loaded with tips.

    The mouse is the reason for Orlando. Don't let anyone kid you otherwise. Without the mouse, this is a rest stop half way to Miami.

    We lovingly refer to it as the land of 100 dolar bills.

    I get out there about once a year thanks to one or two friends. We gave my granddaughter one of the best birthdays a 5 year old girl could have.
    She got to spend time with Tinkerbell,
    Got to dress as a pirate,
    Got to spend time with all the Princesses and with Mickey & Minnie as well.
    Rode all the rides she was big enough for.
    Stayed to see the fireworks at the end.
    Passed out in my back seat on the way home - actually she was out before we left the parking lot.
