To the wall!

I got tired of paint bottles in boxes, on the table, on the floor and where ever they could roll away and hide. I decided to make my own paint rack.

Firstly, the paint rack should hold all of my paint bottles. All of my vallejo and what is left of my old half dried Citadel Foundation paint.

Secondly, I didn´t want the paint rack to use any table space. To the wall!

Thirdly, I want to use money on minis, not racks, so I made it myself in the basement with some spare wood, wood glue and nails.

There is room for 50 bottles of vallejo (five shelves) and citadel paint and minis currently being painted (three shelves). Right now it still needs some paint and it also has to hang on the wall.

Paint rack still needs some paint (black or grey?).
It also has to hang on the wall.  Norman minis and coffee for scale.

Machine of destruction

A Mercedes Benz 280SL survived the apocalypse. Once a luxury car, now a machine of destruction. It is a 1:43 car, which I converted with a few items: For example green stuff, an old creditcard cut in pieces, the driver and window from an abandoned slot car, and a screw cap.

The car was sprayed black and I repainted it. After that I used brown washes and drybrushed yellow and white to make the car appear dusty and things should be in the wastelands.

The good people from Post Apoc Wargames Forum suggested that I should build a weapon on my car. Good idea, and I cut a lollipop stick in seven parts, glued the parts together, wrapped green stuff around them. Paint, wash, drybrush, voila! Minigun!

Anglo-danish Hearthguard

I have just started playing SAGA. I have painted to small warbands - Anglo Danish and Vikings, made some terrain and I have played a few games. Great game, got me back into wargaming.

Here are four Anglo Danish hearthguards. Gripping Beast plastics and vallejo paint.
