Spicy Spice-rack/shot-glass holder (also useful for painting miniatures)
A few people have asked after the last Valhallagames podcast on miniature painting workflow about my home made Spicy-Spice-rack/shot-glass holder (AKA miniatures painting holder). Here are couple of quick photos.
Note the rare earth magnets glued into the 25mm dowel. I glue my minis on steel washers, (now you know why). But the other end of the dowel has a 25mm Velcro "dot" so if I do have minis on plastic [only] bases I can still work with those by adding another valcro dot to the bottom of the mini.
Listen to the podcast for the full detail if you are interested. Hope that's useful.
Firstly: I love your 8th...and you two motivated me to start a desert campagne with a friend. I gonna play the Brits aswell. Gonna use your Colourguide for sure! Thanks for that.
Secondly: Have you two ever tried the Perry Plastic Range? And do you have any on your disposal to show? I really like them but I am kinda worried they are much smaller since they are more in a true scale proportion.
Thanks as always, I love your content!
Hi Phil, that's great send us some photos!
Yes and no for the Perry's, dan has both metle and plastic, but the plastic are american cival war no neither of those are very helpful, however this image has been floating around the internet and I think it shows them well.
The whole scale thing drives me nuts to be honest (which is why we sit an entire podcast on the subject) dan would argue that it's only in assault that you really see them together, most of the rest of the time they are not next to each other and you wouldn't notice so much, I'm not too sure about that. One thing is that at least the minis will be in scale with buildings and vehicles. Hope that helps, the Perry's stuff is very nicely sculpted.
