The redecoration is nearly finished. I set up the worktables yesterday – which means all my painting and casting equipment is set up permanently and I still have 2 meters (6.5ft) of worktop space to craft larger projects on. There are shelves above to store terrain and casting materials and pretty much all the tools are right there to hand without the need to open drawers.
There’s still a fair bit of minute tidying and organizing to do before I can really start using the space, but with this done we can finally put all the issues caused by bringing production in-house behind us and start releasing new minis again.
It’s been a difficult year for Icarus, the casting issues we faced back in Q1 really set us back. but come the New Year everything should be up and running which means a restock of the website and the new sculpts for the Gunslinger and male troopers going on sale!
And once I have had a chance to play around in the space, video content will start again. I’ve got lots of ideas for new content, including a series on how to go from a blank green mat (the starting point for many gamers) to a beautiful table of terrain.
I will also be documenting my return to Middle Earth gaming – there’s a lot of exciting things coming for the Middle Earth SBG in 2018 and I want to get back into the game that got me started with miniature wargames. So expect some cool Middle Earth tutorials to come.
This will likely be my last post of 2017. With Christmas so close I’ll be winding down and focusing on getting the new workspace sorted and enjoying a break!
However you choose to enjoy yourself over the next couple of weeks, I hope you have an amazing time. Stay safe, be good, and keep being awesome.
