JP Gotrokkits started painting around 1989, his first figures were from RAFM, Grenadier, and a little company called Ral Partha. Soon Citadel miniatures appeared at his local shop and took the spotlight. He has painted figures ranging in subjects from Science Fiction, Fantasy and History, in most of the popular scales, and from most of the popular companies, between 6mm to 32mm. As he matured in the hobby, he met with Sea Dog Game Studios and built terrain and painted miniatures for their Sailpower and TechCommander game lines. Sometimes things come full circle and a few years ago he came into contact with Ral Partha Legacy, who have re-released many of the figures that enthralled him in his youth, which gave him the privilege to paint several units for their studio armies and online catalogue.
Of late he has been operating a Twitch channel twice a week where he paints both commissions and pieces from his Pile Of Opportunity. He started the channel in hopes of being an encouraging voice in the hobby for both new painters and old vets.
If you’ve never painted a figure before, he invites you to make a little time to stop by and paint a figure at DualCon’s Paint & Take event, it can be your first step into a rewarding part of the gaming hobby at large. The first one is free!
