Chris started playing Warmachine and Hordes with his friends as a way of relaxing during his medical residency. As his medical and social responsibilities grew, he had less time to play against his friends. He wanted to be able to maintain contact with them and the hobby, so he started focusing on painting miniatures to a higher level instead.

Chris finds inspiration for his miniature dioramas everywhere he goes. When he sees something that strikes him as interesting and possibly something he could use in a future project, he stores it in a mental inspiration bank for future use.

One of Chris' favorite eureka moments was when he took two figures from two entirely different scales and was able to successfully combine them into a single diorama. This lesson was a breakthrough for him in terms of overcoming the fear of messing up two very expensive miniatures.

We then talk about some resources that Chris has used to build his understanding of visual composition for his miniature dioramas and how he approaches building a vision for these dioramas through sketches and impressionism.
