unpainted people, as a general rule, are a lot cheaper because they are difficult to paint, so if you're any good, buy some and paint yourself. this is what my grandad did for me, he sent me a whole jar of people!

Re: On my work bench.

So now I can get on with all the builds that I've let slip. No more clearing the dining table every time I finish a part I can just leave it all on the bench. i have a simalar setup, but becuase i know i don't need to clear the table, often i end up with little room to start something new. oops!:lol:
