Last weekend I finally finished my workbench after some (long time) preparation :D. I moved to a bigger appartment one and a half year ago and had a spare room available.

How it looked in december 2016:

My workbench is being relocated, but only from one side of the room to the other!

I'll get some natural light - that's a window top right - and ultimately more space to make a creative mess in! The short term disruption has me twitchy, though, especially with LPL running right now!



If you play the CSI "Enhance... enhance... enhance..." game on this photo you might be able to make out my next five LPL11 entries all lined up on the shockingly clean desk surface!

Looking good WireLizard.  Scary thing is I recognize several of the figures as Pulp Figures with no magnifying. Seems I have some of them staring at me from my not so clean paint desk...  lol

Decided to spend the last week of the summer holiday doing a complete overhaul of my hobby room......

Went from looking like this:


To this:


I sold off one of my 2 desks, removed as much empty (not that it ever was empty) horizontal space as possible as this seems a magnet for attracting crap. I was lucky that I found my fifth secondhand Alex cabinet on the day I was putting my furniture back into the room so that added enough storage space for painted stuff to keep me going till retirement I hope. Threw out a lot of stuff and the cabinet toppers and small sets of drawers beside me will go up for sale on the local fleabay, joined by a ton of kits and older models I have no more use of.

Yes, it is very clean, and you don't see any paintpots or anything. I don't even have a display case or anything. Everything is behind closed doors. Leaving it out on the table just seems to bring out the clutter monster in me and affects my mood a lot, and I need this space for studying as well. I know it's a tad OCDish but it works for me. And my wife is over the moon with the change so that counts for something. Now to keep it this way.  :D

Tons more of info about the rest of the room on my Blog btw >> http://20mmandthensome.blogspot.nl/2017/08/d-day-7.html

Nice job! Just cleaning up my room after dumping the GenCon acquisitions.  Sometimes you just need to tidy up to get motivated to paint again.

This does seem like a FINE way of getting to know each other; i.e., what speaks more about the inner being of a person that their workplace...other than an ex wife that is.
This is my main work station:

Nothing really surprises me there. The only question I have is why did you board up the back of the closet? Sure, Jadis can cause some fear, but her powers don't have much use here. (Unless it's to stop you from tempting fate and travelling there?)

It's not really a closet. It's a wardrobe, hand made by Cap'n John & lined with cedar...pretty impressive in person.
Thanks for the reply, von Lucky. It's nice to see a familiar/friendly face over here.

Thanks, Treebeard. I am glad you like it. The few females that have viewed the room have never returned...so much for a social life.

It's been awhile since someone posted here so I thought I'd throw in a post about some "reclaimed" space.  Next to my gaming room in the basement thee is a small 8ft x 8ft bump out that I finally decided to clear out.  I used to have my HO scale layout in that room (my prior hobby to wargaming).  Anyway, as part of a de-cluttering decree from my lovely, yer fierce wife I finally decided to pack up the railroad stuff and see about re-using that space.

After some thinking and approval from management of my plan the room was cleared up with one half being used for storage and the other half being used for a scenery workbench. 

The right side will be used to store my sectional terrain panels:



The storage racks were built out of scrap plywood





I've also got some 2ft x 2ft panels which will take up the rest of the space to the left of the panels.

The other half of the room will be a scenery workbench and have storage for all my scenting materials.  Its the first time I've gotten all this stuff in one place, so hopefully I'll be a bit more efficient and not re-buy stuff because I can't find it.  My lack of organization and the convienance of Amazon Prime same day delivery "may" have resulted in more than a few duplicates..





And finally, a shot of the workbench being used for it's first gaming scenery project - staining some Lunesdargent Egyptian themed dungeon tiles.  These will be used in my upcoming 2018 Historicon games "DAK & Dragons" and it's modern equivalent "SOCOM & Sorcery"
