DVD's Workspace

I’ve been doing a lot of painting the past few days, and as I was about to pack up after a lengthy paint session last night, it occurred to me that I’ve never posted anything showing my work area. So here’s the mess that is DVD’s workspace.
 

I’ve been slowly working my way through my Salute haul, which I am over half way through now. All that’s left to do are a couple of plastic zeds, a small group of rednecks, the Salute freebie and a pair of walking dead characters.


So that’s what I’ll be working on for the next few days, after which I intend to start work on adding some more scatter terrain to my city (still need some inspiration on that front), and then I hope to start getting some games in finally!

  1. Cosy little space. Mine got doubled since I last showed my man cave as I moved into another room :P.

    For scatter urban terrain - depending on how ruined you are after I'd suggest Ukraine photos or perhaps Yugoslav wars. I can't think of any other "western looking" conflict atm. Or you could simply take a stroll in the city, there's loads of inspiration out there but it is all so common we don't notice it at all :)

    1. I wish I had a man cave, if I want to plat a game I've gotta clear that table to play it on lol. I like to scratch build my scenery bits on the cheap with stuff I have lying about, I have a few ideas of things to add to the city, I think where I get stuck is how can I make it with the stuff I have on hand.

  2. That's a cute little workspace DVD. Mine too has to be packed and unpacked at the beginning and end of every session. Nice work on the figures.

    1. Cheers Bob,
      I also use that table to game on. It's such a pain having to get it all out and put it all back every time! I might just be me but it seems as my daughter gets bigger, my workspace gets smaller lol

  3. If you need to move stuff regularly that a painting station might be useful? Something like the GW or homemade ones here: http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Build-Your-Own_Painting_Station

    1. The two on the left are from hasslefree and studio minis, as are the zeds. The rednecks are from westwind productions

  5. I'm guessing that your work-space has actually been tidied a bit for the photo !
    As for scatter terrain, I too have been slowly (oh so very slowly) working on that front:
    Car wrecks, skips, trash bins, piles of rubbish, newspapers, overflowing litter bins, discarded household items -fridges and the likes, pallets -full and empty ones, piles of sacks or boxes, fallen trees, small ruined buildings (collapsed shed, barn, outhouse, pigsty or whatever), supermarket trolleys, barricades, tyres, wood piles (sawn and log types too).
    Is this the sort of stuff you're thinking of ?

    1. Thats exactly the type of stuff Joe,
      Does this mean I need to buy some coffee stirrers now?
