Also, my latest order from MicroMark came today. It's a glue holder. It uses tattoo ink cups & it's a weighted piece of metal. Something I've needed for quite some time, but never have pulled the trigger for till now. Also included in the order were extra cups & some medium grit sanding sticks (2) from Infini models. Since Flexi-file brands were out here locally, I just added those to the order. They are nice to use.

That glue holder is neat. I'll have to make myself one of those sometime.



It's a simple thing but it works. Compact size too, as you can see in the pic, around a inch diameter.


Hobby supply shipment showed up today (kinda surprised tbh as I was expecting it next week, UPS ground but from Cali). Hobby shop I found on ebay & then saw they had a regular shop online. Burbank House of Hobbies - Burbank, California.  Discount on items & decent shipping & great selection.




Xf26 deep green

Xf9 hull red


Lacquer (looking forward to trying these!)

Lp18 dull red

Lp11 silver

Lp5 semi gloss black


Fine white primer

Spare 20ml bottle (used for..  )

Lacquer thinner - hobby/plastic friendly

Sanding sponges 400 & 600 grit - looking forward to trying these out!


Lacquer sprays:

Ts38 gunmetal

Ts14 gloss black

Ts9 British green

Ts76 mica silver

Could have sworn I ordered semi gloss black & bare metal, but I have these colors on order at the local shop.  I would have ordered the sprays above there, but it takes allot longer & I'm in the mood to hobby now.


Mr Hobby:

Aqueous (Acrylic)

39 purple

6 green

76 burnt iron


Alclad II Lacquer- stainless steel (DeLorean time machine - what else? :lol:)



Maxi cure extra thick super glue

Insta cure gap filling medium general purpose super glue

It's been awhile since I stocked up & didn't realize how low or out my supplies were. Plus, looking forward to trying out new items too. I'm "hobbied-out" as far as spending! ::P:

Was out to FLGS tonight to play some Legion and part of the latest Warlord Games order was in....



The bag on the left is the rather unique Wurfrahmen 40, often called the "Stuka zu Fuss".  It basically performs very much like my fun fun Nebelwerfer, but more mobile, and it goes in the tank slot, so both can be fielded in the same platoon, for maximum chaos.

The others are for Konflikt 47. The two blisters on the right each contain 2 Nachjager, monstrous flying creations using Rift tech. The middle box is a unit of Nachtalben, creations using some of the tech used in Nachjagers, this are closer to human, so able to use weapons.

Next order I need to get the "werewolves".....

I've got to get some of this K47 stuff assembled so I can play a game.....

Wyrd is having an easter sale...    

And they have a rabbit pulling a girl out of a hat...   


Easter Angelica is on its way together with a few others. 




I was sorely tempted by that one, but I haven't heard great things about their pre-assembled PVC stuff.


They also had some original Hannah the Librarian kits too (An old "holy grail" mini of mine), but sensible me won out and wouldn't let me throw a 100 bucks at some of Wyrds earliest plastics.

@SamuraiJack Here to hoping you recover quickly!! My uncle got it late last year & really hasn't recovered from it yet. It doesn't help that he broke his ankle while stepping up to get into his truck & he got it at the care facility he was at. Since he is overweight (always been a factor in his life & is close to to 90, it's been a struggle for him. Luckily he did get his vaccination when he could & was on his way to get his booster shot, when the accident happened. ::(:


While not acquired items, I did preorder a few Unpainted minis tonight at the store. Hopefully they'll make it in before I need them (knowing the current shipping/supply situation, who knows)




Mimic - Outhouse version

Harengon Rogues



Shigeki, Jukai Visionary

Is it just me or do the children look, almost, like they're based on Rose and Thorne from Curse of Strahd?


It could be, but they look more like standard farm children (at least the boy does, the girl could be anything) then the actual artwork shown in the book. Which to be honest, makes them  creepier then they should be. I've ran Death Houe twice & I've never shown that picture to my players. ^_^


While I'd like the to be different, I'm in need for 12 children minis (plain, no weapons, armor etc etc) so these will fit the bill. I'll pick up the rest later on in the year.

So I pre-ordered the AP Speedpaints Mega box when it was announced back in Feb? with a release date of late March.

All of the Canadian (at least ) Mega boxes have been MIA for a number of weeks, so shipping "issue".

Everything else has been out, so finally grabbed a fairly random single bottle on Tuesday night (Camo Cloak).

My ritual of purchasing worked, as this showed up by lunch Wednesday.



Unfortunately Wednesday night was all doing work (I so "love" when critical MS server patching lands on my on-call week) and last night was Bolt Action night, so I haven't even cracked the plastic yet.....
