From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
My vortex mixer arrived from Amazon in about 3 days rather than the 15 days Amazon said. Honestly, if I had noticed Amazon’s shipping estimate before buying I would have held off. Anyway it has arrived and is making my hobby life better already. Here’s a quick pic:
The pot of GW Wraithbone is partly added for scale and party because this is the mixer’s biggest victory to date. The lower half of the pot was glugging up badly, but I added some acrylic flow helper and gave it a minute or so on the mixer. Most other paints require just a few seconds but this one got a lot of time. Long story short, the paint is usable again. It’s still on the thick side, but I should get a lot more out of it before needing to buy another.
The mixer has easily taken the hard work out of bringing older paints back to life, and for existing pots a few seconds on the mixer before use replaces some hard shaking, which is all to the good.
Ultimately I would recommend this to anyone with acrylic paints that often have to be discarded before they are used up.

Imperial Rebel Ork challenged us to post pictures of our favourite t-shirts. Here’s mine:
A venerable Penny Arcade t-shirt, which must be getting on for 10 years old now. The collar is showing signs of wear, but it will have a few more goes through the laundry/ironing/wearing cycle before it gets retired.
