|Wasn't expecting 2 boxes the size of my lower arm though! The picture they used for the lamp was a stock photo of a normal 20W lightbulb, and this lamp is considerably bigger!|
|Much bigger then a can of fizzy drink!. It is a good thing I kept my fittings for it up high....|
|Old light on the right (60 watts), new light on the left (275 watts)|
After a quick check there are still some shadows on the table but nowhere near as pronounced as before, so taking shots of games in progress will not come out looking dodgy due to the lights, and I have the option to lower them for a bit to get closer to the table if I need to.
And in other news, my request for a shrink has been turned down, but upgraded to a request for more specialist care and help with my application for a company that specializes in finding fitting jobs for autistic persons like myself, to prevent me falling inot the same trap over and over (work for a year, unemployed for 5-9 months, work for a year etc).
And the catch of the week is that I actually spent money to buy stuff this week. I bought 2 big lots, 1 of 6 boxes of mostly OOP GW plastic scenery, new in the box (1/3rd of that has already been sold off, briging my total expense for 2 boxes of GW trees, 1 box of Arcane Ruins and 1 box of Battlescape (the ruined Rhino with some craters) down to 50 euros, which, frankly, is a bargain. The other lot is 4 BFG fleets in one go (Imperial, Chaos, custom built Ork fleet and custom built Dark Eldar fleet with lots of ordonance and escorts plus a box full of planets and asteroids to fill out my own collection. I'll sort out what I need for myself and put the rest back up for trade with friends or forum members as we are trying to get a BFG thing going again locally.
And that is it. After today there will be no buying or swapping for a month (all of May), just selling. Goal is to collect 100 euros in Paypal sales to fund the 4x4 Cobblestone and the 4x4 Concrete mat. Bonus would be selling another 100 to fund either a additional third 6x4 Spacemat or upgrade the 2 4x4 mats to 6x4 mats. If I would be able to sell another 100 it would be 6x4 mats all round. Miniatureswise my wants list is now very, very small, I just want to get cracking with painting miniatures and building more scenery in the evenings.
So, some good news, some bright news, and some bad news that turned into good news. If all goes well I could be painting again next week....so, wish me luck!
