Today, I've set out on a challenge, to come up with an awesome 40k workbench, for all my WIP projects, paints, and such. This has been decided for two reasons:
1) It's all over the house and I would like a nice little place for it
2)It's taking over the house
My budget would just be short of buying you this (the Paintstation+ is £40!)
I've also made it a little more difficult: By having a budget of just £20. Not much it seems, but considering a GW paint-station costs a tiny bit more than this, it will most certainly be an interesting challenge. It will be fun seeing what kind of creation I'll come up with. As a brief, I have come up with the following:
- It needs to be within the set budget of £20
- It needs a dedicated space for paints and tools, current work-in-progress models, and storage areas.
- It needs to be easy to move around
It meets the criteria: It has plenty of usable space (Land Raider shown above for scale), of which I can use to meet the second criteria, and whilst it is on the heavy side, it ison wheels. Well, was: two broke off during transit. Which means I need to buy two more, or be forced to replace them all. but still, at £3 I'm well within budget.

Small bedside table: £3
Remaining budget: £17
