From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
In this video, Ninjon takes a look back at miniature painting tools of the 80s and 90s, at time before he was in the hobby.
I don’t carry much nostalgia for the period, even though that’s when I got started. I miss the Epic Space Marine game but that’s about it – as far as I’m concerned everything about the hobby today is better and/or easier.
When I started, getting non-toxic red or yellow paint was difficult, never mind the entirely toxic lead miniatures. I view the advances in hard plastic miniatures, up to and including the new Siocast, to be entirely positive.
It was interesting since the Ork and Eldar paint set was the one I started with too, and my pot of Tin Bitz was messed up even back then!
