..so I put all my bitterness and rage in to something productive for the first time ever, and the end result- I built, painted and all but finished a 3'x2' board for 6mm Kings of War.

I'm pretty stocked, I so very rarely finish any project, and other than a good dry and a spray of plasticoat tomorrow, have managed to do something I thought I was incapable of, in less then 4 hours.

Tomorrow is going to be even worse than today, But I will try my best to do something constructive again when I get home.

I really hope this is not a one time fluke for me, as this could be a big turning point.

Sorry to hear that, but happy to hear that you can turn it into something positive.

That's a strong human trait; the ability to take something negative and make of it something positive and creative.
Whatever plagues you, this ability is great, and you will end up stronger knowing you have it in you.
Good luck.

I knew someone would come along and use that! :)

Couldn't get a daylight shot, as It has been dark by the time I have got home.

The 3 foot by 2 foot board is sits perfectly on an old pull out desk, which wheels out nicely. its currently being used to store kitty liter as we have stocked up, as it saves us buying it over winter, but that will be gone soon.

Excellent! As the expression goes, when life gives you lemons.... you look around for 500g of salt and as much Tequila as you can find!

I like it! What exactly is the plasticoat? I think I never heard of it!


Plasticoat is a spray that can be used indoors. It works like a vanish only its a poly-mere-a-thingy plastic coating used for arts and crafts. I'd never spray anything like a model, but for a thin coat to protect the grass it will be fine. I use it on my trees, after several hairspray coats, for added protection. It does dull the colours quite a lot, but for terrain I think it is fine. It doesn't dry rock hard either so It wont damage any models on it.

That's almost the thought I had- except I intended to throw the bag at lemons at the person causing us all the problems! Your idea might be better in the long run though! ;D

On the south coast, in one of gods waiting rooms- Bournemouth. I hate it here, if it wasn't for the fact that the house we brought is the best place in the whole universe (other then the fact that something falls to bits every week, and I'm not very DIY capable!) then I would have forced us to move long ago.
