I almost do not remember, I started in this wonderful hobby over 40 years ago. At the hobby-shop where I used to buy my TAMIYA scale models, one day I saw a diorama of a battle and from there began my interest for wargames.What was your first figure?
TAMIYA Afrika Korps infantry.Do you have a favourite period/genre?
Not exactly but if I had to decide, I am very interested in the Pike and Shot period.How big is your figure collection?
It's really a huge collection, covering many periods / genres and scales (6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 28mm). I would not be able to count the number of miniatures that I have (painted and unpainted). Thousands, for sure.And how big is your unpainted lead mountain?
Approximately 40% of miniatures that I have. Thinking carefully that means I have a lot of painted miniatures.Do you have a favourite model in your collection? And do you have a pic?
Yes, my favorite miniature is always the last one I have painted. I take the same care with all of them when I am painting, but there are some dioramas I like in a special way, once I have finished them.What is the most important aspect of wargaming for you?
Sharing pleasant moments with friends and, of course, drinking beer during and after games.PLANNING ITWhat project are you currently working on?
I'm not someone who has a single project, I'm working on several at once.

And of course I have many more that are not yet started but I have already purchased miniatures for.And do you have any long-term projects on the go?
Peninsula Napoleonic Army, when I have enough time for it.Do you have any wargaming influences?
Certainly, I am very easily influenced by this hobby. I enjoy seeing miniatures painted by other players / artists and I always learn something from all of them.BUYING IT!Do you buy scenery, or scratch build it?
On very rare occasions I have bought scenery, but I usually try to scratch build it by myself.Which figure range is at the top of your request list?
At the moment I am very interested in 10mm Renaissance / 18th Century and Napoleonic ranges.Which individual item is at the top of your request list?

Daily, two English forums, Pendraken & Specialist Games; and also two Spanish forums, La Armada and Warmaster Acolytes.If someone handed you £100 right now, what would you buy?
£100 means a lot of 10mm Pendraken miniatures. Probably SYW/Marlburian references. What has been your biggest one-off purchase?
Generally my purchases are not of much value, I prefer to make small purchases rather than one large one.PAINTING AND MODELLING IT!How many hours a week do you paint?
I try to paint a couple of hours every day. The weekly average should be about 15 hours.What kind of technique do you use?
Each scale requires its own technique.
For 10mm scale miniatures, I try to paint batches of 15 figures, minimum, at once. I begin with black undercoat, then basic colours and one or two highlights and finally matt varnish.Do you have a preferred brand of paint?
No doubt, the range of Vallejo paints.Do you have a painting area? And do you have a pic?
I have a small painting area, but it is enough for my needs.Have you had any painting/modelling disasters?
Well, this is a little secret. I'm colorblind and once I painted green horses until my wife warned me about it.Do you have any painting/modelling top tips?
Do not sit down and paint if you do not think you'll have a couple of hours to do it in a relaxed and quiet way.PLAYING WITH IT!How often do you get to game?

I enjoy when I play and I remember laughing lot in some games, but now would be unable to explain the reasons that triggered the attacks of laughter!And have you had any wargaming disasters?
Each game there is something that it is wrong, but nothing that can be considered a disaster.Do you prefer short games or long campaigns?
