Went to the FLGS for what is apparently the normal Monday evening painting group. Figured I could learn something. Except nobody else was there. So I chatted to a few of the folks I know in there, and I couple I didn't know. One guy had some really well painted marines, definitely some skills on that guy. I was painting a few marines myself, one of which was 3 years older than him. Despite the lack of people it was a nice, relaxing evening. Definitely plan on making a habit of it.
Oh, and the FLGS in this case is Great Escape Games. Really nice store with good staff, and a really easy going atmosphere.
