I started this group for people who enjoy the modelling/hobby side of wargaming and are looking for like-minded people to share their interests; the purpose of the group is to get together to paint miniature models. Warhammer 40k miniatures will probably be the most popular but people are more than welcome to bring whatever they like to paint. The more variety the better.
Anyone who wants to paint minis should join (even complete beginners). Most people have boxes of unfinished minis lying around and the communal environment should help people with the motivation to finish their unfinished projects.
I also intend to very regularly arrange pro painters to either give seminars or simply walk around handing out advice on how to improve. This will ensure people's technique's improve in leaps and bounds.
