Now, like anyone trying to play an adult, I have my own office. Well, I had one before, though it was "officially" Jim's Hobby and storage room. Now its a clean, two work station office for miniatures and artwork. A fortress of solitude... as it should be. It may not look all that bad (since I forgot to take "before " pictures), but 6 big black trash bags and several pieces of furniture moved in and out later, its about 90% done. All that remains is the tedium of sorting through various kits in bags and bitz I have as well as organizing my fishing tackle.
The dual work area, from the art side. Space for computer art (still have to scan at my main desktop pc though), traditional art and book reading. I DO need a better chair there eventually. Its my plan for birthday/christmas time. ;)
A better look at the hobby desk. Ms Charlotte is waiting impatiently for some more love. I'll actually get some painting time in tonight. I did get a few minis primed. Since Games Workshop is about to drop 8th Edition (which I'm almost excited about, though I still doubt I'll actually be playing) I'm holding off on any big miniature organizational plans and plodding along with the "finish what you've started" plan. I'm assuming, other than adding a few minis here and there, GW won't change things like the basic Guard infantry platoon organization or the 10 man space marine squad, so any immediate painting strategies I have are safe. Assuming that to be true. As for the blog.....
.....this is about half of the miniatures I have to build. This humble blog will not be going anywhere for quite some time.
Top shelf: primers and junk.
Shelf 2: Chaos and things that will be chaos.
Shelf 3: My long neglected Orks, plus a couple boxed sets. Bottom: Scale models forconversion or just building. Some Tyranids and Necrons. The shoe boxes are bits, aftermarket stuff , bagged models and clam packs and that amorphous two drawed white organizer in the foreground is literally full of Space Marines..... and there's more in the ugly Muave/Peach Dresser of DOOOooooooooom.
FWIW, I Am taking on a limited number of commissions, if anyone is interested. For details, Check out the page on my O-fficial website and drop me a line.
Lots to work on. I have to replace a window in there tomorrow, which was taken out by a golfer last fall, but its definitely going to be a nice environment to work in. Management has told me I DO need one cat bed, at least and or a small piece of cat furniture, because two of the feline denizens of the house do not trust me to work by myself. Compared to there barely being enough room to walk without stepping over or around something before. I'm really happy with the fruits of my staycation. Now, I'll shut up and get back to drawing , building and painting. ;)
