What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.

Crisis in the paint room overcome!

My second paint shaker shook itself apart today (the first one I had I burned the motor up after allowing it to shake too long).
I wasn't about to go looking for a new one so I took the back plate off and had a look.

The problem was the glue for the head gave way and then vibrated off causing the shaft to fall down inside where I couldn't reach it. But being the prepared wargamer that I am I had the foresight in planning ahead for just such an instance. No serious student of our little hobby should not have the following in their inventory...
After a little dab from each tube it was a quick few seconds to fix and problem solved. Though I am waiting till tomorrow before I try using it again to give it a chance to harden well.


  1. A paint shaker! I had no idea those were even available to the general public. Sadly, at my house I am the paint shaker....

    Love the J B Weld though. That stuff is great!

    1. Yes J B Weld is amazing stuff!

      I am taking resumes for future possible need;)
