Painter's Workbench: Stripping Paint

This post is for all my fellow Warhammer 40k players out there. I've recently been trying to figure out how to strip the paint off my old figurines. You won't believe how easy the solution was!

The secret is the power of pine! I really couldn't believe how well this worked. I took some before and after photos to give you guys a better idea of the finished product!

The pewter figure (above) seemed like it was unaffected at first but once I started scrubbing the paint just fell off. The plastic figure (right) turned out great. The plastic is actually a bit stained and seems darker then a virgin plastic model, but its completely stripped of all paint, decals, or primer.

My Thought on Nintendo's Project Cafe

I am by no means an expert in the field of gaming news. However I have read alot of really interesting news over on my favorite site, The Escapist Magazine. So what we know so far is that it has been confirmed the controllers will feature a 6.5 inch screen, joystick, 8 buttons and a camera. Thoughts are it could look something along these lines (pictured right).

Rumors also say it will be running an ATI card that puts it a mark above the Xbox 360 and PS3 and the price point will be something like 400 dollars. [Source]

I for one, cannot wait for a hardcore gaming console that has some real grit to its graphical capabilities and don't take that as me saying I hate the wii. I love the wii its alot of fun. But this new console seems like its combining the DS, My TV, The Wii, and everything Nintendo which is just a really great way to make sure I LOVE IT.

I look forward to seeing if this is really going to be announced at E3, I mean shoot I haven't even gotten the 3DS yet and already Nintendo is shooting for the rest of my money.

World of Warcraft Cataclysm Collector's Edition UnBoxing!

Well had quiet the mini adventure getting this bugger.Seriously every expansion after the first two has been a nightmare to get. Last year Gamestop selling both my Collector's Editions I had bought (one for me and another for a friend) though the Manager managed to find other copies from another store and get them to me, I decieded to go with Amazon this year. Unfortunatly even with one day shipping the notice clearly read "Dec 9th" on my CE until...I got home earlier today to find it! So it got here on time, little bit of a time scare and they charged me twice by accident but was cleared up pretty fast. All in all, say Im plannin on hitting my next WoW expantion from a release party with a pre-order instead of Amazon.

What I got:
  • Art Book
  • Soundtrack
  • Game DVD
  • Behind The Scenes DVD
  • 2 Decks of TCG WoW Cards
  • 1 Loot Card for WoW TCG
  • Mouse Pad
  • In-Game Pet and Achievment

Also the above Image makes me think we all got the same loot card.
