Watto's Junk Yard / Re:Collecting how did you get hooked
« on: January 3, 2003, 09:51 AM »
As a kid I can still distinctly remember my mom buying me a Han Solo after I got a shot at the Doctor...I must have been 3 or 4...not sure why I picked him out or why I picked Star Wars but I was hooked from then on, I had a huge collection through ROTJ when I moved on to other things (MOTU, Transformers and GI Joe)

FF 12 years...my girlfriend at the time's brother was a huge SW fan...he told me that they had released figures again...this was mid 1995 I believe.  I picked up the whole first wave of figures on Orange Cards when they came out.  He hooked me up with a Princess Leia and I was satisfied for about a year...then I finished college got a job and had gobs of money just needing to be spent  :P  So I started in again with a passion...about two years agao when I found out my wife was pregnant and realized I had tubs full of carded figures I switched focus from MOMC to loose/army building and Vintage loose complete.  So I traded all of my carded and boxed stuff for army builders and here I sit with almost 1000 figures

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re:Paints
« on: December 31, 2002, 11:25 AM »
I use Citadel Water Based Acrylics, they have a wide range of colors.  Some Comic/Gaming shops carry them, if there is a Wizards of the Coast store in GB check there or shops that have gaming mini figures or models.  The awesome thing is since they are water based no need for brush cleaners and the like

For sure you need to use Acrylic paints though, it also doesn't hurt to then spray them with a coat of Testors Dull Coat to seal the paint and remove some shine

Some of the Vac Metal figs like 3PO and some R2 units it takes a little bit to get acrylics to adhere so spraying with Dull Coat first is the way to go...

I have to brag about them because they're my pride and joy.  They're almost like my own children in a way.
 I'd adopt a Blue Snag if I could  :P
