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?

      This was originally not one a mini I planned to paint.  However, I got two in an auction lot and the base fits well with one of my few base stamps (in this case, the Happy Seppuku Stone Shore stamp) so... why not?
       

      (click for larger versions)
       
      This is the state she is in now.  She's been primed and a thin coat of Brown Liner (1 part Wash Medium, 1 part Brown Liner, 1 part water) has been painted on top to bring out details.  (I found a mold line I missed on the side of her knee and relined her legs with a thicker coat of Brown Liner, because I forgot the original mix.  The thicker mix is not likely to obscure detail when painting but it does make it harder to see in these pictures.  Oops.)
       
      (Note to self: Get a non-grey background for these pictures in the future.)
       
      I've decided her doublet, pants, boots, and gloves are leather.  Her doublet and pants are stitched in the front and are worn over more normal clothes.  (Both her doublet and pants have obvious stitching in the front and the alternative is undesirable in a family friendly environment.)  Her shirt includes her loose poofy sleeves.  (Which are probably good for a rogue since they mask the shape of her arms.)  I believe the most interesting detail missing from her store page is her knife holster on her left leg.
       
      I wasn't entirely sure what to use for colors so I did a mockup using my paint program.  The knife in her holster will not be visible from this side but I included them to get an idea for how they would look.

      (click for a larger version)
       
      The current colors are: (all paints are Reaper MSP or Bones)
      Skin: Youthful Flesh Hair: Blond Hair Doublet, boots, and knife handles: Ruddy Leather Pants and gloves: Nut Brown Belt, stitches, and other leather accents: Leather Brown Shirt and sleeves: Dark Elf Skin Blades: This is one of the colors from the Blade Steel swatch Floor: Dungeon Grey  
      The focuses for this mini are her face, her hair, textures (leather and wood), and NMM for the metal bits.  Let's see how this goes.

      Been working pretty steadly though bad about keeping up pics!
       



       
      Did these guys (mostly done) in January. They are GW minis from the Battle at Pelennor Fields Lords of the Ring starter set.
       
      I started on these guys closer to end of the month, as well:
       
      They're for my Luna Wolves, first guy is the Terminator sarge (which I'm painting along with some other terminators from the Burning of Prospero box set)

       
       
      This guy is a resin cast Apothecary from FW I bought off ebay - he's got a pretty bad mold slip along one leg, but otherwise is a really cool model. I'm trying to paint his little vials and bottles to be more realistic like glass full of ... well, something. He has a lot of detail on him!

      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.

      Some may be aware (or not) but Reaper's Queen of Paint, Anne Foerster, has a Patreon going under the name of Painting Big. I am currently backing her at a level that give me an hour a month in a private video session. We decided to paint the same mini, Frost Giant Queen# 77592. The current focus of the lessons are concentrating on Layering then moving on to Glazing & Blending.
       
      Today we had our first session via skype and here are pics of what was accomplished on my end. We did have some technical difficulties (mainly on my end) as she couldn't hear me and could barely see what I was doing so I could only communicate via chat.
       
      Base skin color is a mix of Light Blue/Morning After Blues 2:1 ratio and lined with thinned Blue Liner.
       

       
      The eyes I started with blocking them out with Blue Liner, then Linen white, Ancient Oak, and Pure white for the highlight.
       

       
      This is where she is at the end of the first session.
       
      Homework: Eyes on the other Giants from the Bones 3 KS, work on lining with thinned paint trying to get crisper lines.
       
      Next session: Shading & Highlight of the face (and maybe the rest of the skin).

      So my girl ( @Zanderina) and I got into this wonderful hobby together, and we've developed a few tricks and styles our own.  Well yesterday I was told my style is very dark and 'Earthy'.  No offense taken, but it hit me I do need to extend my color pallet choices.  This lead to a small challenge between us, as we're apparently very competitive with each other.  We'd pick out our model to be done next, and the other person would pick the paints to use.
       
      My model choice was Hosilla (#60172), and received the following Reaper paints to use:
      Dragon Red (9401), Cats Eye Green (9414), Bleached Linen (9436), Punk Rock Pink (9286), Leather White (9062), Honed Steel (9053), Ginger Cookie (9659), Cursed Gold (9464), Kobold Scale (9458), Golden Blonde (9033), Tusk Ivory (29825), & Black Indigo (9603)

       
      Her choice of model was the Arcanamirim Wizard (#60135), and I gave her the following paints:
      Old Bronze (9197), Dungeon Slime (9415), Solid White (29842), Chestnut Brown (9071), Sunrise Orange (9406), Wilderness Green (9411), Stark Naked (9682), Harvert Brown (9200), Goblin Skin (9457), Ashen Blue (9057), & Khaki Highlight (9123)

       
      Over the next couple weeks we will be posting up the WiP pics and hope to get feedback as we go.  Let the fun begin!!
