Bio: I've been painting for a long time, first canvas and then minis. I've recently caught the sculpting bug, having decided that it is time I get the monsters out of my head.
I tend to be very methodical and hard on myself. I'm also very much a realist and tend to avoid cartoon-like minis and exaggerated features. I prefer fantasy monsters and creatures, especially dragons, so you'll likely see a lot of things with scales coming from me.

Name: Doug or necromancer120 is my nick, used in most games i have played. Currently live in St. Louis, MO USA.
Position: Somewhere between Neo and Indie!
Creativity: I am a digital artist trying to bring my 3D modelling into tabletop (which could get me hung by traditional sculptors).
Interests: Currently working on a personal project that is a tabletop game of historical horror. Rules are in playtest and I have started digitally sculpting the first model.
Blog:doughamilton3d.com is my personal site. Not much of that work would translate to miniatures well, but I am working on that.
Bio: I was always an artist. Even as a little kid I would draw for hours. That carried me through school and into my first attempt at college and traditional art. With a long break to play grown up I eventually went back to school and obtained a BS in Digital Animation. I have worked on a couple of freelance projects for miniature companies (still waiting to see production) in the last year.

Name: Klomster (If you need it, i will of course give the name, but for now, you've gotta live with my nick ).
Position: Indie, sculptor neophyte. I'm working on improving and slowly trying to make a contribution.
Creativity: I usually paint some very good (according to many) 40k minis, and try to improve my gs sculpting. I also dream of beeing a computer games developer, but i have no 3D program skills (ok, über basic, but it's far from beeing something to brag about)
Interests: As can be seen in my recent updates in the concept art area, I am working on some cyborg warriors, strangely similar to mechanicus. The goal here is to update with an entire range of warrior tech monstrosities and the likes. I roleplay every weekend and play miniature games at times. I am totally into 40k's mechanicus, and even have a finished warlord titan frame (just needs details, finishing the guns, and paint, basically done.... just need to work on it)
Bio: I've always been a bit gifted with the pen, both drawing and writing. Which left all my school books filled with useless stories and hundreds of small pictures
I have a very hard time keeping at my projects, someone thought it could be ADD, a form of ADHD, but without the hyperactivity. Ad in probable low blood pressure, and constant tiredness, and that's me
Expect the odd joke from me from time to time.
Other: Go troll forged, if you can get trough hard times, so can I. I will take you all as an inspiration to get me trough my depression! (I think I am depressed, and you guys make cool stuff to take learning from, so I both envy and admire you all! Keep going.)

Some of you may know me from other boards as Taarnak. I haven't been active for a couple years because of school and my day job.

Bio: I studied Art & Design at college and it has always been a love of mine. I moved into the graphic design world in later life and stopped working on my art.

Interests: There is way too much in my head, so I would like to keep improving my sculpting and would enjoy have some of my pieces cast. I play D&D so I make a large amount of fantasy figures and have not worked to much outside of that area (a few conversions for friends but no full sculpts of things not related to fantasy area.

Name: Liam McGintny
Creativity: Illustration / Sculpting ( Digital and Traditional ) and Game Design.
Interests: I'm a bit of an autodidact and I'm looking to move my past dabbling in this area into something more concrete. Starting with the basics and hopefully taking it all the way. I'm a fan of tabletop gaming from a hobby aspect but I also enjoy good industrial design in general.
Bio: < none for now >

Creativity: Digital Art, Game Designer & Illustrator
Interests: I am currently working on a Grand Strategy WarGame titled HAT (Heroes Armies Thrones). It is generic enough that you can adapt other settings to it. It runs at a Company / Operational level. Company level for Battles and Operational level for Logistics, Territory.
Bio: I have been interested in the war gaming/Role Playing Game industry for quite some time. Since I was 13 to be precise. I am currently 24 and I am going to be starting my own company within the next year. I just need to have the preliminary work done (Rule System, Some Minis to play with, etc.). I have been quite heavily involved with the video game industry in my past.
Creativity: artist (I like to draw I'm not an artist , painting, sculpting, games design
Interests: I'm a bit of a jack-of-trades (regrettably that makes me a master of none . I'm most interested in improving my skills across the board so I'm not shy about accepting constructive criticism. My sculpting has been limited to conversions on existing miniatures and I'd like to make something that is my own. I like game systems that involve the player at the ground level and immerse them in a story about their models (Blood Bowl and Mordheim were two of my favourite "war-games"). I want to design a game that provides this experience that offers fluid game-play yet still has a mechanics that allow for a rich tactical experience that due to design can remain tucked under the hood. As an old fart I just started to play around with a tablet and am having better luck reconciling art with digital media.
Bio: Just a recluse gamer who seems to play about with painting and modelling more these days as I'm disappointed with what's happening on the tabletop. I appreciate the story and atmosphere of of a good game more than I care for it's mechanics.

Name: DaViuss ( d-vI'-us ) / David Lee Seymour Position: [Neophyte] relatively new to 3d digital sculpting ( about 2 yrs now ) and completely unfamiliar with forums in general. Creativity: I've been an artist as long as I can remember. Used to draw all the time, top of my class in art, but I found commercial art to be too...commercial, lacking freedom or self expression. I've always loved model building and miniatures and have enjoyed building, modifying and painting them for over 25 years now. I tried my hand in physical media sculpting, but I lack the finesse, but tried my hand in digital sculpting a couple years ago and have since grown to love it as a source of creative outlet. Interests: My drawing always tended to be of mystical creatures, high tech war machines, or more commonly a mix of both, but lately I have felt a definite shift towards the scifi tech end of the spectrum. I first started rendering for game piece modifications ( I have limited access to a high-end 3d printer at my day-job ) and learned to model around it's limitations. then discovered shapeways which became my new outlet for sharing ( and making a few bucks on the side ) but it gave my designs purpose, a reason to push myself further and develop my skills. Also, it allowed me to create pieces for the many game ideas I've always had floating around my head. Bio: Imaginative, creative, enthusiastic. I've always loved minis and gaming. First fell in love with the old-school Citadelminiatures line back in my early teens, but never liked their games, so I've made quite the many for myself over the years. Model building, minis painter, artist, driveway mechanic, gearhead, streetracer, mountainbiker, scifi buff, follower of fantasy, pc gamer, skyrim mods maker, bit rusty guitar player, loving husband, hard worker with too many damned interests and no where near enough free time for everything.
Blog: Well I don't have a blog per say, but I tend to share stuff on my facebook and my shapeways account:https://www.shapeways.com/shops/IRONCLAD
