Mobile hobby

In between watching Avengers Assemble and making a serious dent in the Christmas leftovers, I managed to get the mobile hobby area set up yesterday.

Because I'm working on metal models, it's easier to have a tray to catch all the bits from drilling and scraping mould lines - especially as my darling wife is allergic to nickel, and I don't want to get in trouble.

The cutting mat fits nicely into the tray, and means I don't mark up one of my parents' trays. Other than that, I just use the clippers, pin vice and scalpel - I have spare scalpel blades and drill bits in case of emergency, and about 3 metres of pinning wire. I very much doubt I'll be able to get through all of that in under a week!

I'm going to be trying, in the coming year, to deal with new purchases as I buy them, rather than buying to add to an ever increasing pile. As such, I've immediately got out Cypher, one of my Christmas presents, to start working on him.

My other gaming related Christmas present was Be'lakor, and I didn't bring a case that would be particularly forgiving of me assembling him before I get home - so he's going to have to wait until I make my way home.

It amuses me a little that the models two of last year's Advent Data Slates are now this year's Christmas presents...

    1. I've been on the receiving end of him, but I'm looking forward to finding out how he does. I've got a few fun ideas for some scenarios, too.
