Beginnings - My First Figure

So I was thinking about it and I thought that the best way to begin would be to tell of where I started out. That way I can give the illusion of progress without having to do anything.

D&D vintage wizard Ral Partha Polly S acrylic Military Emporium
When I was in junior high I was given a basic boxed D&D game by my aunt for Christmas. After exploring what was there (where is the board?...) I learned that you could buy little figures to go along with the game. Neat! I picked up some Ral Partha miniatures and some Polly S acrylics and got to work. The wizard was my first figure that I painted and I still have him today. Not too bad for 12 years old.
