So I have finally gotten around to getting my painting workspace halfway decent to work with and paint in. My main issue in this apartment is lighting as the living room does not have its own light like I would like it to. So as you will see in the pictures below, I decided to buy some shop lights with some daylight bulbs for them to blast down up on my area. These are clamped to a towel rack which is on my wall, and it creates wonderful lighting for my painting area, I can finally see well enough to get some work done. The only things I need now are a magnifying boom light, and some kind of wall mounted tool holding thingamajig.

I recently was able to visit Cool Mini or Not's offices and got to see the piles and piles of Super Dungeon Explore that were being shipped out for the pre-orders. I had seen the game demo that's set up in the Local Game Store here and have read through the rules and it looks like a lot of fun. Sadly I've not had a chance to play it, but I will post a review just as soon as I'm able.

|Electrons ate my homework!|
MERCS is a small squad skirmish game based in a futuristic, mega-corporate run world. MERCS are the Corporate Security forces that are now the military might of the world. There are 9 factions that are still world powers and currently 6 of them have been released for play. Each faction is different from the rest and has pros and cons. There's a good review of 5 of the 6 current factions here.
The game itself is pretty clever and quick. Each side chooses 3 to 5 models (no point costs!) from a faction and battles are fought on a 2'x 3' board.
