My solution: The Workbench. Pics of progress I'm making on current projects. I hope you find any of this useful/interesting.
Above, my actual workbench. It was actually made by my father-in-law in shop class as a desk for his own hobby. He built it higher than a normal desk so he wouldn't be hunched over it. He gave it to me when we moved into the new townhouse. It's in the garage next to my trusty mini-fridge and dusty Bow-flex (a beam pokes into frame on the right). See dad, it's put to good use!
A peek inside one of the desk's shelves. This is where my old retired models go. I'm too sentimental to get rid of them, which turns out to be a good thing. They're handy for parts.
Here's the current project; an Eldar Wraithlord. Being Alaitoc, I'm painting him up in the traditional blue/yellow scheme. I'm going for a strange fade effect on his armor, making it almost look bottom-lit. It should end up giving the model an eerie spirit-like look. I modeled him with a Wraithblade and a Bright Lance. As you can see, I opted to put the Lance on the back of one arm. All of the Tabards are arranged in the back, to look like a kind of cape.
I'm almost done with the blue areas. last highlights still need to be applied on it's right leg and some of it's right hand.
Here's a closeup of the head. I wanted at least some of it to have the cool camo-mottled effect I've been dabbling the other models with, and this seemed the best place for it. Also, see that black plate on his face? It's actually the Wraithlord's cod-piece. You heard me. My Wraithlord wears his crotch on his face. That's how he rolls.
