Terrain page partly redone

I thought about how to collect all posts about terrain building in one space for convenience. Earlier I copied the posts, concerning terrain building, to the terrain page. That is a lot of work for me to do so I thought there must be an easier way to get everything into one place. What I did was adding links on the terrain page to the different posts. So now you can reach all the articles I did so far on terrain building in one place!!!

Have a look here: Terrain

If you like that please tell me ! I will do that for all the other posts too then.

My new workbench

Last weekend I built myself a second workbench in my hobby room in the basement. img_1689

This table will be used for Styrodur cutting and building terrain pieces as well as permanent setup are for my airbrush. As you can see in the next picture.

I will get a more professional spray booth for my birthday. The airbrush overspray will then be leaving the room through the window above the table.

These are pictures of my complete room in the basement. the table on the left is approx. 160×75 cm big and used for building and painting miniatures. The next table is the new one approx. 180×75 cm big and the gaming table is 210x 120cm big. Behind the doors of my gaming table is my terrain collection.

I will show more pictures when I have installed the new airbrush booth.

King Kong a Schleich miniature!

All in all a very good little convention . We will be there again next year ! Maybe it would be nice to have some lokal traders at the con next year if possible. I know with such a little event it might not be worth for the traders to come but in a few years time if the convention grows ! Anyway very recommended if you want to try out an alternative rules system.
