Keeping myself busy doing what I love....scratch building

Quit my job. Yes, I did.
Bit of a whim, and also not. For the past 11 weeks I've been paid not at all or too little. It tends to get fixed a few weeks down the line, but mistakes have been piling up and the last 2 weeks I received no pay at all and at the moment I'm due 72 hours in pay, plus overtime, benefits etc.
Contacted my temp agency, asked if they had a job for 32 hours a week working from home. They called me back in 3 minutes time and offered me the job I've started training for last monday. But enough about that.
To give myself a small present I picked up a few more rivits. Well, a lot (It was a half price sale, sue me). And some pencils, some paint and some barrels. More Mordheim bits, more Ork bits. I really need to paint more stuff but atm too busy with selling and studying, so maybe next month.

Upgraded my table today. The size is great, but it was a bit low and I prefer my tables to be a bit higher to spare my back. So measured the legs and got 4 steel new legs cut and sent over, plus plugs to protect the floor.
Then realised I had to lift up the table by 1 metre to sleeve the new legs over the old legs. And this table weights a ton. Oops.
A fun morning of swearing and sweating later I now have a much taller table, with extended storage underneath. I'm a happy, if exhausted camper now :)

Had a great tone of fun turning this manure injector tank from a toy tractor kit into a 28mm scale silo for Modern and Post Apoc games, and limiting the wear and tear I usually add. Scrapped the frame and wheels and just used the tank as is with some very minor additions. Great fun to get stuff fone, and I only paid 40 cents for it, so another 50 cent challenge done. Also fast, I picked this up a mere few weeks ago, so this is ultrafast for me :)

Another 50 cent challenge done, picked this one up for 20 cents at the Goodwill store, with a bit of damage. Based on a MDF 50mm base for a Asian setting from 15mm to 28mm, should work for all of them. Added a small fortune in tufts :P

Took me long enough.
Remember this? Gaslands wreck Only took another 2 years, oh well.
It's done. Will work for gaslands, modern combat zones, Stalker and Post Apoc tbh. Nothing special but great for background shots.

Not much to say, have 2 online group paints so I have a planned reason to paint. Old scenery that can (finally?) be finished. More work to do. Esci T-62 and SandS BRDM-2. Once done, will work for Stalker, Afghanistan, TW:2K
It's nice to be back :)
