A question of storage

It's not a question I have ever thought about. In fact apart from 1 storage case I either use some old A4 paper boxes or I use the really useful plastic ones.

However I have been looking to protect my miniatures lately. So it was chance browse on the internet and I can across a company called Just lasered. Not only did they have some cheap storage but they fit into  the real useful boxes.

So I took the plunge and ordered 4 50 man trays to fit 4litre or 9 litre really useful box and a topper. Normally £4.25 but I ordered 2 or more they were only £4.00.
So here is one of the trays with my Congo and a fistful of kung fu miniatures. They fit well.
Some Saga and Gates of Antares miniatures. You have to watch the spears but I didn't see this as a problem.

This is my 20mm Vietnam miniatures and they fir really well and for me this is what I going to use the trays for.
This is my 20mm WW2 Russians collection and I have filled all 4 trays so that's 200 miniatures in a A9 Really Useful box. 

They do some different trays as well which I will check out for my Bolt Action Japanese.

Check them out

Paint table update

Another Saturday and another update.

These miniatures are for the Osprey rules Scrappers. They are from EM4 miniatures and they paint up well. Just used some base colours and dip, then highlighted them up.

Quick update

Unfortunately real life came and stole my hobby time.
Mind you as you can see I did clear my paint table as I just did some painting even if was only 10 minutes here and there.

  You can also see I managed to dip a few models including those Japanese.

A week on Monday I am trying out the scrappers rules from Osprey so I will finish those figures.

Paint Table Saturday

Saturday comes around again. Before you know here it's here.

Last week I didn't get a game of Wrath of Kings but I did play Batman the miniatures game.

Twice !!!

I have played it before and I forgot how much I enjoyed it.  So what I have been doing. Well Pikeman's lament is back Monday so I thought I would switch to back to that.

So searching through the loft I found these from the way back time machine. Ottoman Turks from Bearsden Miniatures. I can't tell you how old these must be. It could be 10 years or more. Anyway I have enough to make a big enough force for pikeman's lament.

So why not.

Finally ....

 I will keep still working away on the Wrath of Kings as well.

Paiint Table Saturday

Another week goes by and I am still working on Wrath of Kings for tonight. I am not going to be finished but the point was to push towards completion.

Sometimes you make it and then other times you don't. I still have a few more hours to go so I will be further ahead. I am not going to beat myself up about it, you just keep plugging away.

I also have another faction to do for Wrath of Kings for which I have more models for. That's why I started with Teknes as I would have never have started them otherwise. I will be able to play a intro and skirmish game for now and when I want to play a battle size game then I will have to use the other faction.

So there is a method in my miniature madness.
