 Everyone needs a paint mace :-)

"Mace (bludgeon), a weapon with a heavy head on a solid shaft used to bludgeon opponents" (or a tool made by Rex and used to improve efficiency when spray painting). New podcast coming soon taking about the paint Mace and other significantly more interesting content.

Another reason to magnetise your bases or base on steel washers.

See... I do paint and play something other than WWII.

Spicy Spice-rack/shot-glass holder

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.

Podcast EP6: Painting work-flow

​In this episode Rex and Dan discuss painting work-flow we each describe how we go about the process and share any tips. Beginning miniature wargame painters will get loads out of this episode and if you're a veteran painter you might even find a gem or two. We also chat about the results of last month's "Reasonable hobby challenge".

Show-notes are located here while you are there we hope you will give us some feedback (tell us where we are going wrong :-)) and perhaps send us photos of your best paint job.
