  1. I finally made it down to Tammie's. Very good (but not complete, there were gaps and some key colors like VMA Black were out of stock) selection of the Vallejo Model Color and Vallejo Model Air lines, but none of the Game Color, Game Color Air, or Metal Color lines which is disappointing. Totally worth a visit just for the fun of it, there're not many old-school hobby shops around anymore. Bonus points if you can find the oddly eclectic micro-selection of GW stuff. Also, the Sunset Highway is even more of a dumpster fire than it used to be.
  2. These are wonderful. Every single one of them, and there are many. Grab a drink and enjoy your evening,

    WIP It. WIP it good.

    Various work in process model pics.
  4. All the new ork buggies are on bases and it's a royal pain in the ass. It may not seem like much of a difference, but they really bottleneck a lot easier. I wouldn't do it unless I had to.
  5. Yeah, I think you're right -- if you print them with the hole already there there's no problem to solve.
  6. https://www.amazon.com/Dremel-Workstation-Portable-Drilling-Perpendicular/dp/B00068P48O There are also cheaper 3rd party options. Drill presses are super useful in general.
  7. Do you know anyone with a drill press? It's easy to set a drill depth, so no danger of drilling through the base. Plus, it'd go a lot faster than hand-drilling.

  11. That's excellent news, thanks! IIRC they also stock AMMO/Mig stuff... gonna be an expensive trip 😉
  12. I've been ordering online. I'd rather buy locally, but if Amazon can get it to my house in two days with free shipping that beats one (or two, or three...) weeks of waiting for a special order to show up the the FLGS every single time.
  13. Check out the Sector Imperialis Large Base Detail Kit, there's a pile of little gubbins that'd do the trick in there...
  14. Oh cool, did they do a restock after they re-organized the store? Last time I was there they had dumped all the Vallejo stock into giant tupperware containers for customers to root through 🙄
  15. Does anyone know if any stores in the Portland area maintain a decent stock level of the Vallejo paint lineup (Game Color, Game Air, Model Color, Model Air, Metal Color, etc.)? I know several have sparse, well picked-over displays but I'm hoping to find one that actually maintains the line...
  16. That's tempting. If for some reason I wasn't able to do the whole tabletop wargaming thing, I'd be deep in model train nerdery.
  17. It's caustic, but not a carcinogen. Gloves are definitely a good idea 👍 and I'd wear safety glasses if I didn't already have to wear specs.
