Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second


Recommended Posts

Good hobby day, as a couple of orders from the past couple weeks caught up to me. I've increased my Army Painter Speedpaint collection by about half again as I add on colors that the Mega Set lacked - probably should have just sprung for the complete set, ah well. Also got a bunch of these cool dropper top crystal clusters, which can be used to show how a contrast paint will look on a figure - you can't rely on how it looks wet in the bottle, after all.

20230914_173624.thumb.jpg.62adef5cc1d150cf947b1e83898b0209.jpgI am the proud new owner of a Garmin Venu 2s smart watch.  I primarily bought it to track my sleep, since I have been sleeping bad since my acquisition 2.5 months ago of a new left knee.  Joining the ranks of the minor cyborgs has just not been all that fun.  If the watch will get me to move more that is bonus.

 Jack was an idiot and ordered a Barrowgate Box yesterday.


Jack has several free figures coming due to the price of the order. The free poor that also came with the purchase has already arrived... :down:


I'm so poor I had to sell the last two letters of the word to pay rent - now I'm just po...

My birthday came early! I knew something was up when the wife and kids needed help with “heavy” groceries.

Now I can larp line cook and get extra more fatter. I’m 💯 going to go full Uncle Buck and make the biggest pancake I can on this bad boy.

Finally got around to taking a picture of my Reapercon stuff. There is also a paint triad and a couple of books, RoSD and Ghost Archipelago that didn't make it in. And yes....there will be dinosaurs in Ghost next year...[cue eerie music and evil laugh].


I forgot, the bag has 5 more goblins in it.

Before the game last night, I walked over to the LHS & placed a order for some Tamiya sprays, as I walking out, I spotted this.


You know I had to have it + I also found out something about the new owner of the store that I will happily enjoy over the previous owner as well.

Busy month of September for me! Some of this was order either right before RCon or during. ::D:


Most of this is international ordering, I think even with the inflated shipping costs, the price was cheaper to go this way then here in the US. I mean a model kit was 16 bucks vs 30+? Wtfluff? Anyways, heres an overall shot of everything, minus a few kits I forgot to grab for the photo.


Rectangle white box is a desk lamp I got from Big River, as I saw a link on Discord & thought eh, what the hell I'll try it. It's not bright, bright, but combination of my overhead LED & this down near the worksurface makes a great experience. The light blade is thin enough that I have it just above my head & even if I look up or at it, I don't really notice it. Model number is X0020AE1P5.


Next to that are some dice. Back in RCon 2022, one of my players rolled these, they are light up LED numbers. They are neat, but I don't think I'll use them all the time. Just not Chessex. :poke:


Dragonbane RPG GM Screen. I'm gonna run the FREERPGDAY adventure next Sunday (yikes!) at the FLGS as part of a "let experience something new" that my store is trying to do. I also picked up the RPG box set right after I got back from RCon.


Wizkids Unpainted minis: Borborygmos (aka huge cyclops), Jetmir, Nexus of Revels (the opened one) & female human fighter. Some reason I thought this was different then what one of my Saturday players is using for his character. It must have been a long out of stock one, as I don't recall seeing it till I opened the box & saw it.


White ink marker. I'm gonna use this for tire markings & such on models.


Mr Hobby Bellow style pipette. I have the large Mr Hobby thinner bottle & i was just going to use a regular one, but saw these on PlazaJapan & figure eh, what the hell.


D&D Prismatic Paints (pretty much the rest of the new D&D ones in that line that I didn't have, that aren't in the rest of the Vallejo line up already - new code numbers)


Vallejo Game Color (new) - metallics: Chainmail, Glorious Gold, Silver, & Dark Gunmetal. I tried the brass for a brass dragon wyrmling prepainted I re-painted & I really liked the paint. I like Speedpaint metallics, but sometimes you just need a true metallic paint (my favorite style of paints, tbhwy).


Studio27 photoetch - Goodyear stencils for 70s F1 tires. I've got a bunch of older F1 models that I need to airbrush the logos on (thanks to Gy's high licensing fees, these aren't usually in the kits).


Shunko decals - Lotus Type 79 1978: Olympus-John Player's Special aftermarket decals Due to JPS being one of those "bad" sponsors, I needed to get these. "Bad" being tobacco logos.


Renaissance decals 1966 Ford GT MK2 24 hrs du mans. I will be using the #2 number & striping to do the Ken Miles/Denny Hulme scheme (light blue).


Alizero 5e Condition Rings. Nice feature on these, you can use a dry or wet erase marker on the back if you are missing a condition or need an extra.


Tamiya Engraving blade holder, 2.0 scribing blade & Tamiya masking tape 1-3mm. The handle is a solid piece of metal. I'll be able to use this & blade to scribe out panel lines on models to make them deeper & more realistic looking. Something I've been wanting to get but the US price is outrageous for these 2 items. There are other blades but the main youtube model channel I subscribe to, uses this size for most of his work. I've never have used the really thin Tamiya tapes, but if it's like their regular tape, should have no problems with it.


Tamiya Lotus Type 79 1978 photoetch. To go with the above decal & kit. Just more detail for the kit.


"Michael K. Rider" resin cast 1/24 scale figure - aka David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight. This will go with the K.I.T.T. model I've been working on. Pretty nice detail. I'm gonna paint it up & then decide, but I think I'll get the Starsky & Hutch & ZZ Top figures as well someday.


Number 5 lacquer airbrush ready paints:  Type 78 black (aka generic black), Gulf/Ken Miles light blue, Stratos White (aka generic white) & P34/Tyrrell blue.


Finally picked up a model sprue holder from Bandai. You fold it into a triangle & then use the slots to hold your model sprues. Tbh, I have no idea why I got this as I really don't take my sprues out when I'm building. Oh well, always handy if I do.


Not pictured, but I also picked up the following model kits: Tamiya Lancia Stratos Turbo, Tamiya Lotus Type 79 F1 1978, Tamiya P34 Tyrell 1977 F1 & Fujimi 1966 Ford GT40 MK2 1966 24 hrs du mans (aka Ford vs Ferrari).

Quantity has a quality all its own. Time to... brush up... on my painting...20230922_165555.thumb.jpg.cf203c3ccf77f8a8089199c8561ff212.jpg

I have a pack of the black ones and they are....  so-so.  The bristles aren't terrible but the ferule falls off about half of them.  Spot of glue and you're back in business.  Been using them for oil washes and letting the kids slather paint on Bones.
