This small workbench that is to the left my main workbench has been on my to do list for quite some time. About an hour ago you could not see the top surface of this workbench, now you can. It’s far from perfect, but it’s a lot better than it was an hour ago.
Finally got around to finishing the GHQ Tigers. It’s kinda too bad I don’t play WWII, I’m pretty happy with how these came out.
Camouflage was airbrushed using the amazing Badger Sotar 20/20 airbrush.
AK Interactive Ultra Matte Varnish
Done with the first M60A3
Done with the M60A3. I’m not happy with the Vallejo “Matte Varnish”, it still looks a little shiny to me. I’ve got some AK Ultra Matte Varnish on order,, when it gets here I’ll give it a try and see if it’s better.
After all the silly things like paint racks and tool drawers have been added, it’s time to concentrate on the important things. Tonight I added a TV in the corner and an AppleTV so I can watch inspirational movies while I work … or Fawlty Towers.

A Little More Painting
Just A Little Bit Of Painting
The therapeutic power of a hobby is amazing. I have been so busy with work for the last few months I have not touched any Micro Armor in as long. Just taking a few minutes tonight to throw a little paint (first of three colors) on a few minis made me feel good and remember why I do this. Next step (probably tomorrow) is to apply the camouflage colors, this is will be a good job for my new Sotar 20/20 airbrush.
In The Game Room – Episode 39 – Workbench Total Overhaul
I’m getting ready to overhaul my workbench where I work on my Micro Armor.
A few new goodies
Something Cool From My Past
I picked up these rules on eBay for a reasonable price. This rule set has some sentimental value to me,,, it’s the very first miniatures war game I ever played. This is the set of rules that got me interested in Micro Armor … and eventually led me to the business I’m in today.
I’m happy I found these, in pretty good condition, at a fair price.
