Anybody have any experience with weathering powders? I've been playing with ground artist chalks in matte medium and I'm kind of pleased with it. Is there anything to recommend the powders made specifically for modeling, say those from Secret Weapon for example?

I really struggle with them. Soon as the varnish go's on, I seem to lose what I've weathered. I've tried fixers to, they work for mud ok

This is one of two repainted Matchbox flatbed trucks. They're going to represent cargo transport on poorer colony worlds. I have some cargo in the works, too, for objectives. I'm in the middle of painting up a large force- these were a nice break from painting the same thing all afternoon. I'll do some weathering and call them good, I think.

The cars and "pick-up trucks" are rarely in scale, though real pick-ups are all over the place for size.  Most of the heavy chassis stuff like the pictured flatbed are nicely in scale visually, including a lot of big package stuff.  Very few of the MB airplanes are in range, and Hot Wheels are literally car by car.  Only a few work, and they tend to be the oddballs.

Just spending some time ironing out some better fixed storage for my minis. I assembled the custom trays below with foamcore to slot into tabbed closure cardboard boxes.

I got the idea from the board game geek forums, where folks use it to make custom board game trays. It feels surprisingly sturdy, given that it's just foamcore and white glue. It took me about 45 minutes to frame this together, I made better use of the space by nesting an additional layer of infantry on top of the shorter partition. The bottom section already has a magnetic layer for infantry and the upper box will as well. I'm going to line the cavities for the walkers with inexpensive sheet foam rubber.

I think the total cost of the project was about $5, including box, foamcore, foam sheet and magnetic sheet (sourced as remnants from a local sign maker).

Just a heads up that the Rangers KS closes funding tomorrow; it's very close to unlocking diversified weapons for the Hunter infantry.

Not precisely 15mm sci fi, but since that's the majority of what I work on...

Just wanted to show off my spray booth and WIP workshop. I got to spend a few hours on everything before Denver's smackdown this afternoon.

The spray booth replaces a more slap-dash affair of a tupperware bin I had been using. It's built with mostly reclaimed stuff. The cabinet came from a neighbor that was tossing it out and the exhaust fan from a building recycler. The only thing paid for was the strip lights and flexible duct. The whole thing is easily vented outside through an old coal door. I only spent about $25 to put the whole thing together.

What rulesets do you want to play that haven't made it to your table yet?

The 15mm crowd is a pretty widely scattered niche of gamers and modellers.  Even when you have local opponents, games can be difficult to organize with conficting work and family schedules.  When I do get to set up a game in town, it usually defaults to Gruntz.  We already know the rules, have units cards prepared and our armies have mostly been modelled with that ruleset in mind.  Bringing out a new system usually involves a couple games stumbling through the rules and possibly developing scenarios, too.

There are some games I'd like to try out, however: 

Brett Spivey's "The Battlefield" is written with the goal of emulating shooter-style video games.  I should note that I'm not particularly interested in that style of game, but I'm very curious to see how that style of play is translated to table-top.

I'd also like to get in some plays of the Combat Cards system from Tactical Assault Games so I can get a feel of it for solo play.

This was the worst experience I've ever had at an Applebee's restaraunt. The greeter at the door who seated us was rude and indifferent about her job. Our server promised to bring various items (refills, straws) of her own accord, but then never returned. We saw her only to take our order, bring our drinks and then to drop off the check. The music is so loud (boze speakers over every single table) that you can barely speak to each other across the table. Generally, I'm pretty happy with the Applebee's chain, but this location is a standout of the worst kind.

This is a great resource in Spokane for gamers and model-builders. They have an extensive selection of kits, figures, games as well as hobby supplies and tools. In general, the staff are polite and helpful.
