So it's been a few weeks...

So it's been a little while. The internet seemed to go into a bit of hiding for the past a few weeks month, with everyone coming out of the woodwork squinting into the day light over the past few days. By internet, I mean the community of blogs I, and several others, seem to all read daily.

The primary purpose of this blog is really just for me to ask other people with like interests for feedback, be it on ideas, painting, whatever. I really, really like that sort of verification that I'm not missing something stupid...because I do that...a lot. That being said:

Were do you do your...hobby stuff? Painting, converting, assembly, etc. I started this blog in anticipation of my very own "Warhammer Room". I would've gotten away with it to, if long time friends didn't suddenly need a place to live. Without it I'm finding all of my "WOOT! WARHAMMER TIME!" urges utterly squashed by the thought of pulling everything out, setting it up, doing the stuff I want to do, and then cleaning it up before the cat knocks it onto the floor for the dog to chew on. She doesn't eat the stuff, just chew it so that's it's just mutilated enough to require significant work to fix.

Really though: Where do you do it? How do you keep it organized if you don't have your own place with a door to keep it all? etc.

I hate that cat...


  1. I do all my hobby work at a little desk with a lamp and bookshelf nearby for all my display models and stuff. The rest of the stuff is kept in boxes most of the time. Lately,I've been doing my gaming at Games and Stuff in Glen Burnie. They have a clean store and a good group of guys to play with.

  4. I've got one of those annoying blog comments as well. Sadly I can't figure out how to get rid of it. Oh well, hopefully it doesn't get more prevalent.

    I use a small computer desk table thingy that has a small shelf (for the keyboard) and a couple of shelves under that. My WIP models go on the top surface, paints, tools and water jars on the keyboard shelf (with newspaper laid down) and then I put the bits and boxes on the lower shelves.

    Luckily I have a little shelf space for my armies but it's getting dusty there so I'm thinking it's time to move them into boxes or perhaps those racks of plastic drawers you sometimes see in bathrooms etc. I know what you mean about running into space issues though as it's hard to get enough to do work and that makes the whole thing a lot more effort than it needs to be. My big problem is that I use the same area for painting and for building so I have to really clean up after assembly (especially with resin) otherwise there are too many bits of gak hanging around that can mess with your painting vibe.

    We're movign into an apartment at the beginning of April though so I will have to make a more organised storage area.
