    So I have to introduce myself:
    French guy and 37 years old, both are not a crime ...
    2 low age children so I don't have much time for me :)
    I read time to time the armorman's thread on 40k. I'm an old 40k player with some nostalgic feelings ( like squat , v3 codex with night lord rules, etc...) :(
    I've just one army: night lords, but a near past 20000 points one.
    I collect for me and a some friends of mine those paper crafts plans that we like. Maybe in an hypothetic dark futur where is only war I will may have the time to make one or another papercraft.
    So men good flight and good hunt.

    They children take more and more time out of you. Mine was 2 when I basically realized i have no time for modeling. He is 14, and there seems to be even less time!!

    So there is no hope in fact :) , so much minis waiting to be painted or modeled . Sleeping is just a option , no ?
    My first one child told me yesterday: " Dad, can I paint a mini with you ?"
    " what colour and mini do you want ? "
    "In pink, and that's one ( a space crusade dreadnought )? :) "
    So I have to make a army for her , in pink... Poor chaos marine

    LOL, Welcome Tigershark, I'm in the same boat! (38 with 2 small kids) thankfully my 5 year-old daughter has never asked for a pink USS Enterprise! Seeing you're into 4ok, check out Beroc's Warhound. :)

    Are you sure that being French is really not a crime? :playful: (Yes, I'm English :))

    In fact I'm a French-German citizen so a bit more European than just french . But for an English may be is a worth crime ? :wacky: Lol
    I've saw the Beroc's warhound, and it is a beautiful papercraft project .

    So good luck with your 2 kids, post a pic when your daughter will ask you her pink boat or yellow submarine :bag:

    Guilty as charged :( Kind of funny, I also have dual citizenship, UK (being born there) and naturalised South African :) (so where does that put me? :confused:)

    You can see a pic of my daughter in one of the photos in my Voyager build thread, so far I've made Olaf (from Frozen) & some minions (Dispacable me) for her :)

    My German is a crime. Sometimes, I can get a phrase out, and when speaking it, I have been complimented. Writing it, forgedaboutit!! I am the only American, of Puerto Rican descent that speaks any German as far as I know though! If you can think of some kind of car, figurine, or something like that you may enjoy building and your daughter would like, let me know. I have many many links to FREE models. :)

    Well, at least in the US German is not one of the official languages! My Afrikaans (one of our 11 languages) is on the same level as your German!

    On the links, if you have links for the figurines from Frozen?

    I know she will love making some papercraft stuff with me, especially "despicable me". Both animated movies are the more loving ones , for the moment ( like her father she loved for the moment ) :) .
    So if you have some plans or links .

    Thanks a lot for your proposal.
