Hi there I'm NWH and I have been painting figures and models since I was 8 yrs old my friends at school thought I was a little odd and when I found girls I did too. At 16 I decided to go and serve Queen and Country, During a little conflict we had I was reintroduced to model making and figure painting with the help of Airfix and a load of kits they sent to us, I don't know when they thought we might get them done but thanks Airfix anyway.
After a good career in the force's, and then in education. I have had to stop work through ill health and disabilities. I thought to myself what can I do now, I was visiting a well known Auction site and saw Airfix figures for sale and it took me back to my younger days. looking at the figures I thought to myself I could buy some and paint them, not realising there was many others painting figures on line.
So I joined the ever rising number of on line auction figure painters to my surprise I was quite good, but my style was very basic. So being an ex teacher I started to do my research on how to paint better and finish them with a more realistic feel. not so odd now I thought
In 2011 NWH Miniature Figure Painting, was born. and as from the 6 march 2012 became a registered company with HMRC and Companies House.
The style of painting is my own but I am heavily influenced by Kevin Dallimore and Steve Dean and their styles and methods and would like to give a special thanks to Richard Abbot for his advice about brushes and how to use them for the better effect. I don't distinguish from one standard of painting to another, and paint every figure to the same level good wargaming.
Now to come full circle it is intended to acquire a studio and offer figure painting class's combining my two passions figure paining and teaching
