Updating my Magnetized basing..

Afternoon,

Several years ago I posted this guide up

ogres guide to magnitized bases

I have a update to this.

Apparently using the wood glue to secure the magnets is not the best of ideas, it leads to this

Rust, didn't even think of that...

So I have been trying something different.  Looking around at what I had available and what would be easiest to use i settled on trying this




Still has the self leveling I liked in the wood glue and since its resin it shouldn't rust (I hope)  It also shrinks when cured so it should be easy not to get to much on the base.
You could use 2 part epoxy, but I dislike that.  I used some before and I got the mix wrong so it never cured and stayed tacky to the touch, and since there are some harsh things in some of those I didn't care for it.

So that is what I am using currently, just figured I would give ya'll a heads up...

Later,




Looky what Showed up yesterday...

Morning,

I got my package from GW yesterday


I picked up one of the Munitorum Editions of the new 40K rules. A set of the cards and the 2nd web only captain.  (still wish I would have been able to grab a few more of these)
The box is very nice, similar to the collectors Apocalypse edition.  It will look very nice displayed on a shelf.

Few pics of the contents

First layer holding the mini rule book and cards

Second layer holding the other books and the objective markers

All four books

The Munitorum edition cards on the left and the Regular release on the right
Don't know which I like more yet, the regular release do come in some very nice boxes though, should hold up to some wear and tear, the limtied ones are just in plain ol card boxes similar to a deck of poker cards.

The fold up reference sheet, might be nice for home games, but I will be screen shoting and printing and laminating from my digital version for play.

The map booklet...

Very nice will look very slick framed up

Back of the poster

Overall I think this is a very nice set.  I wont go into any rule reviews, there are better places than here to get more in depth reviews.  Hell I haven't even read them yet, just looked at the pretty pictures....

The First Incursion...

Morning,

Late last week I also got a package in the mail.  Which I thought was strange cause I wasnt expecting anything.  So I opened it up and found this from the


Kickstarter

OOOh  Shiny metal goodness






Looks great, reminds me I need to pick up a few metal drones one day.  Cant wait to see the rest of the stuff.

New Tools...

Morning,

Late last week I managed to hit up my local GW Village Center and picked up a few things.


Yes I know, some people think they are overpriced and you can find cheaper things on the web.  But, I like supporting my local store when I can, and I do like Citadel tools.  And of course they are shiny...

Nice two sets of bits come with the Pin vise standard.
and yes its a pin vise, not just a drill

I do like how they do give the drill measurements on the box,
not just named sizes like some of the rumors said.  Will have to keep the box.
But they are nice boxes, will make good gift boxes someday.

The new clippers are a good bit larger, which is good for me since I have big hands.  
and they do look pretty slick

Well that was longer than I thought it was....

Morning,

   I just realized late last week how long it has been since I updated here.  Unfortunately I have done little to no physical hobbying.  I have done some work round the house and updated my bookshelves, so that took some time and I was toying around with painting up some of the Blood angels I have languishing around in various states of unfinished-ness.

But then


Rumors started popping up.  So I think I will wait on finishing up anything.  Though the unbound rumors seem promising for my Death Company ideas...

I also registered for 


Well actually I have registered every year for the past few years, but have had to pull out due to various things.  Barring death, the zombie apocalypse, or the fall of civilization I will be there this year.  I will be taking dwarfs most likely.  So the first on my list of things to finish up is the rebasing of my old dwarf list.   I will most likely take them, unless I can get one of my other Ideas up to scratch.  We will see...

So that means I may need to get a few games in before August to warm up my dice, they are kinda dusty at the moment.

Oh, here are some pics of the new bookshelves.

What I started with

Clean walls

Installed

Painting Finished (only took 3 coats...)
still need to fix the middle bottom door...

Two cabinets are for books

The last might be more interesting...
