I'd have to say I'm really liking them. They have the exact look I was looking for, sadly the pics have been a bit dark to me lately. I really need to install that new light in my spray booth as I'll probably be using that as my photo box as well. I worked on a few other things here and there last night like cleaning and the Airbrushes and just overall getting the table a little less cluttered. Not sure if I'll be posting anything the next few days with it being Turkey Day then shopping at the outlets the next day and then moving my parents into their new house. Busy busy..

I went with different sections black, some with white.. I painted on some designs I did the edges and tried a ton but I'm still not happy. This morning while riding the train into work I thought of a couple of ideas I want to try. So no it will be another few hours of playing around with them.

One really nice part about the game is it's quick, so you'll be able to get in a bunch of games pretty quickly. The board also looks very cool being so crowded with all the terrain but be aware you'll need a lot of it. The field is supposed to be a dense city scape and that's what you need to make. If you buy all the buildings it will be costly but will look very nice.
Sadly as I was learning the game I didn't think much on taking pictures other then saying this is where my TO Camo guy is hiding haha

Tonight if I have the time and energy I'm going to try to finish up the Dusk Wolf guy I've been working on. I really want to have them all knocked out, they are fun to paint and still have a few trial things I want to try on them.

As I mentioned the next big thing will be another Wraithknight. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to pose him, I have an idea but I'm hoping I will be able to make him go into that position haha.. Other then that I think it will be some guardians (blah) some more SMs and also some terrain. I have a pretty cool idea to make some interesting stuff out of my old GI Joe Headquarters haha.. Sadly when I went over to get it from my parents house it looked like they had ran it over, most of my old toys are busted up and of no use anymore. So I'm going to break it down into useful pieces and at least bring it back to life on the table!

I've tried numerous under the counter lights with varying degrees of success. Some are too dim or too hot, or it will take too many to even be useful. I've stuck with the plug in style so far but I think I'm going to have to up the ante. I think I'm just going to hard wire wall/recess lights in to the booth. I know these will be plenty bright enough but the heat could be an issue for sure. I would just wire them up to a switch and a plug, it's not attached to the wall so I'm not going to run Romex along the cabinet. It would be dangerous and look crazy haha...
To fix the heat issue I think I'm going to look at:
They have them in 4" and 6" .. I'm going to measure up the booth tonight and see if 1x 6" or 2x 4" will work better. I'm thinking the 4" with two would be a better option to battle shadows. That's another thing to think about. You need multiple sources of light or your are going to throw shadows over your work and that will also suck.
Any one else have a good option they use?
