Kristof65's new painting/gaming area

Recommended Posts

got back from our trip yesterday, last day of vacation was today, so I used the day to work on the table top. Got multiple coats of Polycrylic applied today.  Getting closer to being able to attached the tabletop.

And my miniatures gaming table is finally done.






Next up is putting everything away, building more terrain, and collaborating with my wife on a stained glass light shade for the lights I am mounting above the table.


Oh yeah, and gaming.

And my first terrain layout.  I'm woefully short - my previous gaming table was a kitchen table half the size - so I can't yet cover the full table or make tall hills.

Haha.  Before I scrolled down and saw the pics with the islands I was already thinking that your table would be perfect for naval battles.

I have two naval games that I like to play, so that was a definite design choice.  

One is an old game called Pirates! involving 28mm ships and minis. It was put out by an outfit called 7th Street Games in the 90s. I don't think it ever managed to break out of the San Francisco Bay Area in terms of sales or players. 

The other is Galleys and Galleons from Ganesha Games, which uses the same basic system as Song of Blades and Heroes.  I have a ton of ships from the old Wizkids game Pirates of the Spanish Main that I use for that. 

I'd love to eventually do some modern naval battles as well - I have the Harpoon ruleset that I picked up on the 80s, but never had acquired any minis for it.  Of course, Harpoon may not be a modern ruleset any more, either.

I added a new paint rack next to my monitor to specifically hold my MSP Skin tone triads in an organized and handy fashion. 


This not only keeps my skin tones handy and organized, but frees up more space in my paint drawer for MORE MSP paints.  I have enough space on the other side of my monitor to mount another one, so I'll be printing more (as soon as I can figure out what's gone wrong with my printer) for an additional rack on the other side.

Okay, THAT is one freaking cool rack!  ::o: What a great way to organize triads! I was going to ask where you got it, and then read that you printed it.  <sigh>  I SO want a 3D printer!  :down: Cool work. ::D:

Thanks.  I knew what I wanted, but it took a few months of just thinking to figure out how to accomplish it, and then several iterations of designs to make that work.

      Hi all!  I haven't posted here in a while as I had to take a break from painting to do some remodeling on my house. That was two years ago.    Finally able to get back to this hobby I love so I wanted to organize my paint desk some.  I designed some paint racks to store my mini paints and figured that someone else might benefit from them as well.  I posted them on Thingiverse for all to use.  Totally free and open source!!
      I am adding to them as people ask for additional brands of paint and other configurations.  If anyone prints them and needs some changes or additional options just let me know and I will be happy to see what I can do.  
      Looking forward to getting involved again in this great community!!
      Without further blabbing here are the links to the units:

      Happy Painting!!!

      One benefit of our unplanned and sudden move is that we will finally have a hobby room.

      The first few displays were moved over first:

      Then came a lot more of the mess:

      Shelves have been set up, and a folding table arrived from Amazon:

      An older end table has been drafted as a paint and build station:

      Once it's finished up, I'll have to take shots of the whole set-up, but there's still a bit left to go.

      I'm in desperate need of organizing my work area. While cleaning, I found a small stack of foam core sheets. So, I formed a plan to get rid of some foam core sheets, open up some storage, and organize my painting area, all at the same time.
      Here's the project, presented wordlessly:

      Darn. I've run out of storage space already. I think I'll have to make a second one at least, what with more paint coming in from mail order and Reaper Kickstarters.
      Dimensions are 15" wide by 13" deep by 12-1/2" tall with a capacity of 126 bottles.
      Total material used for this project: just under 3 standard-sized sheets of foam board.
      It would have been 2-1/2 sheets, but on Tuesday the backboard went missing, and I accused the boys of taking it and playing with it and not returning it; on Wednesday I discovered the piece back where it was before after I had cut a replacement, and I accused the boys of returning it secretly to cover their earlier misdemeanor; and on Thursday my wife asked if I had noticed that I had got the foam core piece back, since she had borrowed it as a backdrop for taking eBay sale photos. I formally apologized to the boys for even suspecting them.

      Now that our new house is done and we are unpacking, living in it for 11 days as of the time of this posting. I wanted to go ahead and start up a WIP thread showing my hobby/game room and the WIP as the last few days I've been setting it up so that I can paint. My OCD won't allow me to actually paint (even though I have an area for it now) until I have the rest of the room cleaned up and organized!
      Let's start up with the original plans -

      And here it is after it was done, a blank slate!

      Like so many other addicts, I found my self just buying whatever I could to add more to my collection of hobby supplies. A paint brush here, a sculpting tool there, ooohh..Hey look a new color of paint !!!!
      Ok- Just me?!?
      Anyhue, I was wondering what the rest of the community uses to keep track of what they have and dont have, or want and really really need?!?
      I myself have found a phone app for the android called "DVD Shelf" - by Dion Harding. Its a wonderful app, and being the Database geek that I am, I found it even more useful when I discovered you can customize fields and add / remove fields as well as import and export Data. Oooohh and it also holds pictures ...WHAT?!?!?        (to much? )
      On many occasion when I visit the Reaper Store I will typically have a list of what I want from this app and just hand them my phone and the man at the store goes and picks it for me. LOVE THAT STORE!!!
      I digress. 
      So know to the point of all this shenanigans. As I mentioned, I am currently using a Android phone and my needs are slowly turning to the iPhone (I am told the darkside has cookies...soo...) However I am not able to find a suitable app on the iPhone that does what this app currently does. So my question is, what does everyone else use for tracking their inventory and perhaps tracking their shopping lists? And is there really an app for that?
      Oh and here are some pics of the app if your interested
