With tax returns coming soon, I'm looking to invest in some more tools to facilitate cranking out better minis! I'll first lay out what I have so far, followed by what I'm looking to get, and I'd like tips on those things and any I may have missed. For those that would like to participate, please share your opinions based on your own experience and please be specific with brands/models and your experience! "I have a Donegan OptiVisor 3.5x at 4" and it helps me see finer detail on 25mm heroic minis" is loads more helpful than "You should get a magnification source". I've come to greatly trust and value the opinions of the fine folks of this board and would love advice based on your experience! I understand much of this can be found by digging through the forums, so I understand those who don't wish to participate, but believe that besides myself, others could benefit from a consolidated thread for upgrades, especially with tax return season upon us! Current supplies: A handful of vallejo paints, matt medium, matt and gloss varnish Daler Rowney FW Inks in Black and Yellow Ocher Citadel Layer, Base and Large Drybrush brushes Princeton Select Round Blender 6 W&N Series 7 size 2 and 00 Sta-Wet Wet Palette Master Brush Cleaner and Restorer Hobby Knife Desired supplies: Ottlites (probably 2) Magnification of some sort. Either a visor or the ottlite with magnifier. A large container of Liquitex Matte Medium for mixing homemade washes More inks! Flow improver (primarily for washes, but also to further experiment with wet blending) A pin vise Basing materials (have bases, need terrain stuff!) Green stuff (and liquid GS) Lots of Reaper paints! Interference paint I'm willing to allocate a fairly sizable portion of my return to the hobby, but inexpensive options are obviously desired as it will allow me to get moar stuff! Thanks in advance for any help! edit: struck through acquired materials
