|Old sitting area compressed into the middle of the floor|
|view from the fireplace. All of my shelves were dismantled with stuff taken down. All of my hiking and camping gear moved to the garage...|
|The far wall used to house my painting desk!|
|Glue lines from where the original owner of the house simply glued paneling to the block wall.... Did he realize he lived in Pennsylvania????|

Needless to say painting and gaming are on hold until the basement is put back together but that doesn't mean you wont be hearing from me! With my recent sell-off of my WH40K stuff, I was flush with cash and immediately put that back into the hobby with a HUGE moderns order. Some TY infantry (West German), and 3D printed models from "Butlers in the UK" (sounds so formal!) and "bashytubits" here in the states. I rounded out some TY companies from Butler's to match an earlier purchase (T-64s, BMP2s) and from Bashytubits I ordered a full company of BTR60s, T55AM2s (5 bucks per model) and BRDM AA, ATGM, and Recce. With all of the Roskopf T-55s I have, we're talking a full BATTALION of T-55s to face off against NATO! Whatever the rules turn out to be.
Now if only I could sell off ALL this World War II 20mm boxed stuff and get even more cash. That might have to be at a convention.
Before I forget, there will also be some 1/100 surprises in that batch from printed order bashytubits that I can't talk about now but would much rather leave you all in suspense! I will give you one hint, though:
|Something is definitely afoot in the basement, brothers. Tighten up. Assume formation gamma and follow my move.|
Say your prayers, keep your fingers crossed, knock on wood, whatever your belief or custom is, that our basement problems are solved! I want to get back to gaming and painting!
