I went to IKEA tonight (December 26th) and picked up 4 more of the shelves that go inside the cabinet units. They are like $2.50 each so for $10 I became even more organized with my storage, feels good!

 

Here's what the cabinet units now look like and how I organized them after moving a few things around to where I felt like they made even more sense.

 

Cabinet #1 - WOOD! Plinths, bark, balsa, and building materials.

Cabinet #2 - Stamping, staining, plaster, talc, hirst arts, and hot glue stuff. You can see my bits bin underneath which isn't full yet, lots of room to expand in it. I've got one of my TaoTronics lights stuck to the side of it.

Cabinets #3 & 4 

 

#3 - Soaps, Resins, Sculpting putties, clays, and epoxies, water effects, oxide paste, etc. Also has the TaoTronics light mounted underneath. 

#4 - Mediums, primers, dull coat, glues, blue tack, etc.

Cabinet #5 - Basing materials only

Is there / will there be under-cabinet lights? If not, might I suggest setting aside a bit of budget space for them when feasible?

 

ETA: And because I'm dumb, I forgot the important part: Looking good! Can't wait to see more progress! ::D:

Yeah I'm thinking of doing some under light cabinets LED strips AND/OR a bigger light that'll clamp onto the corner area of the painting spot which will be a draftsman's light, I saw some on amazon for like $100 and really liked the look of them. Right now I have 6x 6inch 90W LED daylight bulbs in the ceiling and the TaoTronics directly above my paint area, which I mounted to the bits box and under cabinet using that super strong double-sided sticky tape.

 

Thanks!

Duh! Those are secret.  Looking good (for such a small place.)  My finshes are much less, but my small table is 6' x 4'  The large table is 4'x13'.  But it is in the basement, something that the don't have in your area.

Looks good so far and I am sure that it will be even better once you have it the way you want it.

 

I will say that I am more than a little jealous that your room has windows.

 

That is the only thing mine doesn't have that I would really like in a game room.

I hate you a little.  :-)  Love the room, and love the paint rack.  Is that the original Kraken one from TGJ, or is it from the newer company?

      Playing with Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering pigments (finally...) Making a rusty wrought iron fence is really fun! I think I need to add a few more shadows to make the bits pop. I'm pretty happy with this, but C&C welcome and appreciated!

      Hey there!
       
      This is my first post-ReaperCon mini, and I'm using her to practice the various techniques that I learned in various classes. I'll be posting stages along the way, and feedback is very much appreciated!
       
      For starters, I've gotten most of the base coats down, and the first thing I practiced was two brush blending on her orange cloak.
       
      My plan is to do a bit of freehand along the trim in the light orange of the front skirt, and then use the same trim along the skirt in the dark orange of the cloak. It makes sense in my head, anyway!
       
      The chest armor is done with the new Dungeon Dwellers color "Kobold Scale", and I love it. It's got a deep maroon/brown thing going on.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Started working on this guy today for one of my player.
      Since I'm a "newbie" and have no experience in working with skin, I was wondering if Reaper's Flesh Wash would look ok with the Elf Flesh base-coat for the skin.
       
      For the hair, the player want him to be carrot-top with a touch of grey. The could prove to be interesting. 
       
      I'm also looking for suggestions for his clothing. almost anything is fair game, all though the campaign setting is in a desert/desolation area.

      Back from Reapercon and working on the little's PC for our inconsistent dnd game.  She's super tiny but I really like the sculpt.  Gripes about plastic, and the mould quality though.  It's a wizkids preprimed number.  I wish they did these in metal.  She's coming along nicely.  Her skins are the rosy skin triad with some of the fair skins mixed in.  Hair is intense brown, vmc orange brown pumpkin orange and then pumpkin orange and rosy highlight, then tiny bits of rosy highlight. Her eyes are I think leaf green, and tiny.  Kiddo is requesting some purple socks with stripes so that is the next thing.  Enjoy:).
