I dont have so much free time ( like many of us ) so is difficult to work in a project for many time... and boring, so i always have in mind 2 or 3 different projects...instead of create many threads i made one ( this one ) to show what i am doing at the moment.
maybe it's disorganized , but , come on, i am too! You are going to find some videos I made for my YouTube channel ( i will try put the english version only ) and some pictures that i am going to upload usually.
Somehow I envy you of your ability to keep it limited to such a small space! Even though I was happy to be able to significantly enlarge the area dedicated to crafting after moving in the new house, I ran out of space after less than a year:
There's just too much trashvaluable crafting materials accumulating, and all I can do is store it in a more or less organised way. The danger lies in forgetting what stuff you hava available, and becoming unable to find it quickly when you need it.
But even crafting materials aside, the growing number of finished projects also eat up storage space (what you see in the pic is only a fraction of the finished stuff and craft materials- I have more than twice that volume of both in the attic, and some more in the workshop).
In about two to three years our youngest will inherit my man cave and I will have to move to the attic myself. I don't mind the heat in the summer months up there, but the space is already occupied with the usual stuff you'd expect there, so that will be quite a challenge.
If someone tells you that you have enough craft suplies and you don't need anymore, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
If we are showing off workspaces, then I'm throwing up mine.
Temp work space on the dining room table, the cabinet on the left in mostly mine. I have to put away everything when I'm done at night thanks to winter, the garage workshop is too cold! This pic is the weekend when I can leave it out!

hahahah! WOOOAH i see we have something in común here! what a nice place you have to work! in my case i live in a very little house in japan so...i only can use a table and fight sometimes with my wife to let her know that " this is not trash, is material..."
thanks for post this pictures, i liked so much, really! my best regards and hope to post something soon, cant wait!!
lol, got ya'll beat I live alone, so craft while I am watching tv on nocs off work...my living room has become my craft room, with a dozen half finished projects in various stages of needing dry time etc and my family room is "stuff" storage for cool things that I *may* need some day...
the minis are going to be made of paper... i think i am going to choose the second one style....35 mm miniature, a little comic style but is fine for me I am going to continue making it for a bite, i am going to upload what i am doing and keep the forum busy hahahah!!
Does 35mm work for your ship?
Why is everyone scared of beholders? I hold bees all the time.

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

erho: Yeah I'm down for a painting contect

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!
Sept 23, 2020 2:50:39 GMT
sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
Sept 23, 2020 2:51:57 GMT
sgtslag: Hoping to acquire a Chop Saw within the next two weeks. Then I will cut up MDF into triangles, to form the skeleton of my d20 fantasy world globe... Posting will follow, with how-to guide. Cheers!

erho: I have a confession: I havnt painted a thing in months because I got a new guitar(#8!) but now that May "Megadeth month" is over I have a repaired airbrush and a early 90's Ral Partha Amethyst dragon on the table... pics to come soon!
Jun 11, 2021 17:49:58 GMT
margaret: too bad you can't post your music here =). Hadn't seen that dragon - looks like it came out when all my cash was going to raising kids. Looking forward to seeing your paint choices!
