Click here to see an interview with Chris Mrosko. Born and raised in Springfield, Ill., Chris Mrosko has succeeded in living the dream of many avid hobbyists—finding a way to make his passion his livelihood. He turned pro in 1991, moving to California to take a position with what was then known as Dragon/Kirin. It was there that he met John Rosengrant, a master modeler known for his “character effects” work in Avatar, Jurassic Park, Terminator, and other films. Together they formed Warriors Scale Models. As an artist and designer, he has worked with well-known hobby manufacturers such as Verlinden, MMD, Custom Dioramics, and the Warriors and New World Miniatures lines of scale figures, creating buildings and display bases as well as sculpting original masters for figures.
