Default Anyone out there build and paint miniatures?

Just wondering if anyone here collects miniatures. It's become a bit of a niche hobby and a lot of the miniatures I grew up with such as Star Trek, micronauts, Harpoon, The Civil War, Star Blazer, etc don't exist anymore. There's a few merchants out there that produce similar ones but they almost always pale in quality compared to what I grew up with. Lately I started to dabble with Warhammer 40k and Battlefleet Gothic and very quickly got sucked into some of them. I also found myself pleasantly surprised by the quality of the paints and other supplies that Citadel produces for the Warhammer miniatures and I'm finding myself leaving behind a lot of the Testors paints which I found have declined in quality in recent years, which is really sad since Testors has been a staple for me since I first started building models as a kid. I'm probably going to start using the Citadel paints for other models that I do.
