Since I did not have any final products to display and I wanted to keep at least semi regular on updates, I decided to post a few pictures of the room in my house which is dedicated to my hobby and gaming. I feel somewhat lucky to have enough space for all of this, given that I've seen others who have little more than a single desk to hobby upon. Though my wife has attempted on a few occassions to move in with some crafting of her own, it has seemed to stay within the Christmas season for her.
Here is a picture of the room from the entrance. Starting in the bottom left is a set up of the game Heroscape, which was my intoduction to miniature gaming. I don't play it as much now, but I like to have a map set up just in case. Moving up from there, is a pretty kick ass dice tower that a friend of mine put together. Semi hidden behind the dice tower, is a Mayhem Industrial building that I began working on before even starting this blog, yikes. Stacked ontop of that are many (many!) pieces of Mayhem Streets that I printed off and attached to cardstock over the past week. Many roads are needed for my ATZ campaign. Movings to the right from there are my Sarissa Precision buildings ranging in completion from 0 - 90%. Continuing on there is a big bucket, that is used for homebrewing beer. Speaking of which, you will also see 64 bottle beers (Blonde Lagers) that are almost ready to drink.
Starting in the bottom left again, we see; more beer! This time a carboy full of a Mexican style cerveza. A benefit of the homebrewing in the games room is that it always has a scent of beer. Passing the stack of unused guitars brings us to my painting station. GW paints on the left, current painjob in the middle and brand new Foundry paints on the right. The shelves are stacked with completed miniatures, and various other hobby items.
So that is where I hobby and game. Its not the best situation, but it is pretty darn good. The room needs a bit more nerdy decorating, but I am hesitant to put funds into that rather than gaming needs.
Also worth noting was that all my items are stacked on two long tables. When the time comes for ATZ campaiging, I can move these tables side by side for a game area of 5 feet by 12 feet. This should cover my needs nicely and allow me to create large cities. Its also a good size for gaming of other sorts too.
Well, hope you enjoyed a glimpse into where my work gets done, as I had enjoyed seeing to locations many of you work in.
Until next time, when I should have a real update.
