Aged pretty well

Today’s mail brought some new pots of paint and a couple of bitz which I raided off eBay. Instead of posting yet another post of the new stuff I’ve bought, I have something else to share. Recently I went through a whole lot of old boxes and among the treasures I found there was three old Citadel Colours.

The Enchanted Blue seems slightly dry but might work. The Sunburst Yellow and the Snakebite Leather however look ready to be painted with straight away. This I find very cool! As an homage to the old days I feel that I need to add one or more of these colours onto the models I am about to paint. I wonder if today’s paints will be usable still in two decades or so?

ALEX moved in

Since I ran out of stuff to do with my upcoming 40K-army – I am simply out of miniatures at the moment – I have been looking for other things to take care of. During the past days I have been working hard on organizing my dedicated hobby work area. Living in the country where every reasonably sized town has an IKEA-warehouse has its advantages. I got myself a drawer on casters named ALEX (502.649.27). I bought the grey one which I think fits in perfectly. The plan is to store all, or at least most of, my paints in it for easy access. The pots from Citadel fitted in perfectly but I have yet to find a solution for the ones from Vallejo. Maybe I will have those on a shelf or something, we will see. Anyway, I am very pleased with how it all turned out.

I will be painting soon

My most recent order of paints have arrived. I can’t wait until I get to use these amazing product from Vallejo! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get all products I need from stores in Sweden, so the rest had to come off eBay, resulting in longer delivery times. However, Ministuff is a great vendor when it comes to Vallejo and I usually check them out first when I am in need of new pots.

To Skövde and back again

For the larger part of the last week I have been to my former hometown Skövde. It was awesome meeting up with family and old friends, eating great food and even look at stars falling from the sky. Obviously I took the time to visit a couple of stores as well.

Game Maniacs in Lidköping has a huge portion of tabletop games and miniatures. They don’t just sell GW-stuff but all kinds of board games. This time I managed to leave their store without actually buying anything, nevertheless it was nice to check out their shelves.

Habo Hobby in Habo offers pretty much anything any train hobbyist could ever wish for, and more. They display a lot of stuff in their shop which I find very nice. I bought some basing materials I will use in the upcoming army of mine.

Back home in Gävle I paid my favourite local gaming store, HobbyShopen, a visit and finally got myself some of that sweet plastic drug we all crave for. Now I have one box of Dark Angels Company Veterans Squad, and two more on the way. These sets will hopefully serve me well in the conversions and kit bashing I need to do to get where I want.
