My name is TJ Haller and I started painting miniatures in January of 2012. Less than eight months after completing my first model, I won a local painting competition with the first vehicle I completed, a Warhammer 40,000 tank. Since then, I have expanded to all manner of wargaming miniatures and scale models, primarily focusing on science fiction and early AFVs. As a member of the IPMS NoVA chapter, I have placed in official sanction IPMS events.
I live in Purcellville, VA in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I have been a union steamfitter in Local 602 for almost 20 years. I am married to a wonderful woman with whom I have two daughters, ages 8 and 11. We also share our home with our three cats: Winston Achilles (Ace for short), and Kylo:
I always am looking for exciting projects to tackle to expand my knowledge of scale model painting.
