    Hey all,
    Just painted first mini in over 10 years! I got a 'start collecting!' box, still assembling it. I will paint the carnosaur last, I want to improve my painting before then! Last time I was into warhammer was when I was younger, just painting not playing, mostly lord of the rings (evil armies) but then tried out skaven and eventually lizardmen (battalion of each plus a couple random characters). Never got into 40k, but liked fantasy lore. Currently fascinated by 40k lore and going to try a couple minis, but mostly interested in picking up where I left off with seraphon (they're still lizardmen to me!) Big WoW player but wanted to get back into this hobby.

    Last time I painted I was very basic, always one thick coat, sometimes watered down, no washes, dollar store paints. Trying to do things properly this time around, and will be checking out all of the awesome posts/guides around here!

    Welcome aboard, why not start a painting blog so you can plot your progress it's also a great way to get feedback and tips for your up coming projects.

    WoW, don't get me started on that I used to play 12hrs a day every day!!!!

    Crowsfoot, is there a preferred platform for hosting a blog? And do people post links to them here or are they more for general reference? I'm basically a noob so i'll be very open to showing my work for feedback and tips!

    Just start a thread in the painting section of this forum and give it the "blog" keyword, that's all. Then just post all your painting progress there, with as many pics as you want. :)

    (like mine, the link is in my signature)

    Welcome to the forums!

    I too resumed the hobby after a long hiatus.

    You are welcome to use the blog tag in the main painting forum or the personal painting blog subforum. We have a lot of Plogs in both and we are not strict on where you put your own Plog. Personal reference really, and we (mods) can always move a thread to a different forum if asked.
