 o_o some days I amaze myself with my lack of common sense... but anyway, thanks for that! That's a really cool effect.

lol Yes we are

No. 20: tipping my dirty glass of water to clean my brush over.
Over the minis. Over the keyboard. Down behind the desk. Behind the book shelf. I had no idea how much water a glass can hold until this happened. Twice.

And again! It's amazing the area a glass of water can cover. But I was clever(?), unconsciously having built up a dam system with half completed terrain pieces and miniatures to contain the spill. lol

It may be worth considering constructing the device I described a few pages back - http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=87581.msg1113442#msg1113442 lol

You can get cups and mugs that always stay upright, try searching for "untipable mug" ;D

116. Cutting bits off metal models whilst sitting besides a laptop.

"Plink", oh, that was a near miss - as a piece of metal flies away from under my blade past the laptop screen. "Plink", damn, that was close to. "Plink", Great, I finally cut this damn model's head off. Now where did it fly away to? Oh.

Phew, Gorilla Glass. :)

...Though finding out just what that screen could take only emboldened me to continue watching Youtube videos whilst modelling in future.  ::)

zemjw - hah, it's a tallboy glass. I guess a shorter, fatter glass will solve this to a large extent.
