I spent a bomb on a load of new furniture for this room, mainly because i have a knackered back and needed a desk that i didn't have to stoop over. So the height adjustable desks Ive got in here now will do nicely!! So onto the other essential ingredients for a successful and productive Forge:
Storage, Storage, Storage! I used to have masses of boxes just lying around the place, and it was a pain! I found this shelf unit in the Ikea kiddies section, unit and 6 draws for about £31! Not bad for a massive space saving, de-cluttering piece of genius!
Jumbo Cutting Mat!I was only allowed these desks on the condition that i looked after them, or Mrs GunGrave would have my nuts hanging on the wall! So me and my Nuts decided that the desktop needed some practical protection, and this A1 size cutting mat fitted the bill, and only £20 off eBay! Gleaming!
Light Box. Now i have the space, my light box can have a permanent home, free from the predations of my marauding cats!
Display Cabinets. I already had 2 of these, but another one never hurts! These ones are £40 from Ikea, and probably the cheapest you'll find out there! Plus they give me bags of room to park my Valkyries!!
Stirring Artwork. Motivational scenes of death and carnage!
Plus a bit of Star Wars for moderation! (Cheers Bro, awesome Christmas present!)
Cognator Banks and Data Stacks. Internet access is a must in my Forge, especially for reference.
Just in case the Internet doesn't have what I'm looking for, an old fashion reference book or White Dwarf might help!
So there it is! I'm hoping production will re-start tomorrow! I've got about two and a half weeks before i go back to work (back trouble unfortunately) so I'm using the time to get a bit of Forgeworld in! 2 Vulture Gunships with Punisher Cannons (what else!) and 4 Death Korps Heavy Bolter Teams, all for my up-and-coming Death Korps Armoured Regiment!
