Here's mine:

Outside of photo:
1. Paint & brushes to the left, extensive rack of bits boxes to the right.
2. Shelves of more tools, blank CDs/DVDs, casting resin, sprays and glue are above.
3. Glass cabinet full of miniatures to the far left.

LOL, enjoy some more..

The set-up has changed a bit since I took these photos, but only slightly.

Mine's like all of yours, except yours seem to distinctly lack soda cans and dirty dishes.

And the occasional piece of broken hardware.

@Eberious: That's pretty messy, but it's in a small area. It's sort of like taking all the Chinese and squeezing them into the UK ;)

It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them.

Stress… is when you wake up screaming and realise you haven't fallen asleep yet.

"The Ultramarines are the greatest of all Space Marine Chapters. From the dawn of the Imperium they have served the Emperor with loyalty and a ferocity that no others can match. Their Primarch, Roboute Guilliman, wrote the Codex Astartes, and the Chapter has exemplified its teachings ever since. The Ultramarines were instrumental in the defeat of Hive Fleet Behemoth, saving the Imperium from almost certain destruction by the Tyranids. They are the warriors of Macragge in the realm of Ultramar, and in faith and in valour they are unmatched." Games Workshop (Codex: Ultramarines 2ed)

Well I can get you a pic of my painting/modelling area, but its all a bit crammed here and there, and generally anywhere there is space to put boxes there is GW cr@p.

If you really really want pics, I'll whip my camera out....

Ok, heres a 'few' pics of my mess *ahem* work area.

Firstly, theres the desk, where I 'paint' (if you can call it that :o). Ohh just as a note, those models on the desk, thats ALL the troops from my infantry heavy greyknight army!! :lol:
Posted Image
Then theres the window sil next to my desk, handy for that extra storage.
Posted Image
This is actually directly behind me when im sitting at my desk (the room is set out in a weird way).
Posted Image
The other part of my desk taken up by my PC, and of course, boxes, sprues and piles-o-mini's cover every surface.
Posted Image
A pile-o-minis/boxes and other 'weird-stuff' next to my desk.
Posted Image
My second 'desk' with assorted cr@p on it.
Posted Image
That nifty box on my desk (if you look carefully you can see a number of these boxes around my workspace).
Posted Image
Another random pile-o-bits.
Posted Image
This is piled up behind my desk, pretty much everything here is full of bits and other gubbins, there is also a titan burried in there somewhere.... I really should dig that out and finish it off).
Posted Image
The cupboard in my desk (unopened eldar junk and a stack of white dwarfs).
Posted Image
And a new pile of stuff I need to find a home for.
Posted Image

Sorry about the poor quality, but the lighting here sucks.
So, you think I may win the un-organised chaos award? :P

I try to keep it as organised as i can, leaving only my current projects up there. Plus the girlfriend uses the computer while I'm at work, so there needs to be some sense of order.

wow quite the set up there drizzt73. ~grins~ is that a garage setup? as mines based in my bedroom. and do i see Vallejo paints on the shelves? how are they to use anyways? are they better than GW? as theres an online store based in the uk where i can get some of the paint sets from. fast track models estore i have bought stuff from there before and theyre very good. one order of mine wasnt in stock and my payment was refunded very quickly, theyre also very good at responding to emails. all in all a good place to buy stuff.

Thanks Kanan. Yes it is in the garage- can't fir it in the house as we are renting a 3 bedroom townhouse and I have 3 kids. It has some pluses- Space and peace and quiet (sometimes) and some negatives- Not much ventilation, no sunlight and it gets VERY hot in summer 40C+. Yes they are Vallejo and they are very nice to use. They come in eye dropper bottles which is a lot cleaner and less waste, also they have a very high pigment percentage so cover very good even when thinned. The only problem with that is that they are difficult to airbrush. Vallejo do have a Model Air range for airbrushing but I can't get them in Australia. For minis though I highly recommend them. I use a mix of Vallejo, GW and P3 paints for minis.
Try these guys- http://www.netmercha...f7cb5f33d0665b8, I have used them before and it looks like they have Vallejo sets and individual as well as Andrea and others

Cheers
