I have got a 100W daylight bulb in a table lamp -- but it does not give me enough light to paint by.
After speaking with perfectsix he says he spent £40 on a surgical inspection lamp. Me thought what a good idea but my googlefoo just found lights for SAD people or Ideal for gynaecological examinations or its well over a £70 max budget.
I don't want a magnify -- it is already hard enough getting the tip of the paint brush in contact with the model. I also want it to be free standing.
So can you help a 'want to be painting my stuff' gamer with suggestions [including costs] for a good set up.
My basis for this was 1 it had huge lumens 2 it is adjustable (anglepoise) 3 it has a light "volume" to make it brighter dimmer (goes up to 11 lol) 4 it was led and whilst fluorescent "reds" after 6 months led Colorado remains constant until colour ceases completely 5 led is lower heat and therefor you aren't drying the paint as you paint.
Downsides It comes with a g clamp which the lamp slots into so it needs a decent firm table. The transformer lead is only about 1 metre If you have it to bright you get glare off the models!
Want me to bring mine tomorrow to see? Basically it makes things brighter
I'm busy gearing up for a winter of painting 15mm FoG stuff and maybe making a start on Fire and Sword as well.
I should be getting the 4th bedroom as my study / painting room starting October.
MDF bases are on order, so are some more paint brushes, just maybe those figures I have had for over 30 years now (longer than i've been married) will finally see the table top and I won't have to keep borrowing forces off Steve D
but it is so light at the moment so I have not needed it whilst slapping some paint on Martians (maybe it would have been a good idea to have washed em first, and primed em and even shaved off some of the mould lines? But there meant to be TOY soldiers and I had fun)
More fun than painting sand-text which I still got to do to the front of the 1:1 scale house for aVBCW
