Ships, part 3

A supply of balsa has been secured...

Finding these sheets took a bit more work than I had hoped. The first two stops, the local model train shop and art store, did not have any balsa. We had to go down to the area of the mall to the nearest HobbyTown USA, and, hidden away in a corner, was a nice supply of the material. My wife also found that shiny new cutting mat in the background - it is huge, at 24" x 36" it is bigger than the hobby table! It was also ½ the price of a similar mat at Michaels so there was much rejoicing!

Hlutrgú, part 1

Now that the hobby table is set up, why not use it!

Here is a blurry pic of my Hlutrgú warband:

I have used plastic rod for the javelins, and they are mounted on steel washers.

Primed black, with gesso.

The hobby table is set up once again:

Now, I just need to get some balsa and the shipyard can start up again.

And, some 28mm minis are in my future as well...

Table re-set

The bits and pieces that I have been waiting for have finally all come together, and the hobby table is finally in order:

Paint storage is handled by a pair of cheap spice racks, and the keyboard tray has been converted into tool storage (and more paints!). It is still a bit awkward but in time the arrangement will sort itself out.

Now, to find where those Hlutrgu are hiding so they can be equipped with weapons...
