I just got back from a great weekend in the country and I figured it might be a good time to snap a few pics of my hobby area before it gets completely trashed again.

This left side is used for all the assembly and's all tools and bits.

This side is my paint station.  The full spectrum lamp is my most recent purchase.  Thanks to Les at for the tip.  I mostly use Vallejo and Wargames Foundry paints.  I like the WF paints because they are sold in triads...a base color, a shade, and a highlight.  The drawback is that they don't come in dropper bottles, which I absolutely love.  I think I will either gradually switch over to Reaper, as they offer the triad sets and come in the dropper, or transfer my Wargames Foundry paints to dropper bottles.  Either way...a daunting task, no doubt.

That's all for now.  Thanks for reading, I hope to have an actual hobby update for you in a few days.

The war goes on,

I'm so jealous!

Come the summer holidays I've a feeling I'll be relegated to the shed again.

Wow, count me as one of the jealous types here. Not only an impressive set up, but neat and tidy too! I've an old computer desk, and my limited supply of paints can still be kept in the keyboard drawer.
I'm not completely sold on dropper bottles yet, as my experience is with Vallejo and I find some can be problematic. I'm interested in what you think of the Reaper bottles.

@Kevin: I must state for the record that this will not remain clean or tidy. Also, the only reason I am able to maintain such a devoted hobby space is because I don't have a girl friend right now. When I did, I had zero time for hobby...quite the trade off, yes?
