About Tarok
I'm a former Managing Editor of the Historicus Forma historical figure modelling website. While my modelling and history interests are diverse, my main figure modelling focus lies in Sci-Fi, Pop-Culture, Fantasy, Roman and WW2 German subjects. I'm a firm believer that armour and vehicles accessorise figures, and *not* visa versa. I live in Melbourne, Australia with my wife and daughters and am employed as a business analyst practice leader. I don't get to visit this site as much as I should like, so don't PM but feel free to contact me on tarokza[at]gmail[dot]com.
