AK Interactive Agitator Balls / Stainless Steel Shakers

As I am currently working on a few historical projects, and therefore using paints from brands like Vallejo and other companies that use drop bottles instead of pots, I ran out of agitator balls.

What are agitator balls? They are small metal balls that are put inside the drop bottles and help stir the paint. I used to use the ones from PK Pro, but got myself some from AK Interactive during my last shopping at Radaddel.

For 5 Euros, you receive 250 steel balls, which is a pretty good price (PK Pro charges 7,95 for 150 balls). They come in a small bottle with screw top as you can see.

Technical Updates

Beside the usual updates in WordPress and the used plug-ins on this blog, I moved the blog to a server with current PHP and MySQL versions. I want to thank my host All-Inkl for the superb service for nearly 10 years now. Fast responses, very supportive and fair prices. What could I want more?

Everything went fine so far and the specs could be increased (faster loading times - woohoo!). If you stumble over any errors, please let me know. Beyond that, have a nice remaining sunday.

11th Bitbox & “Kramkiste”

It is mid of March, so it is time for the spring Bitbox! A tabletop flea market in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The opening times were shortened from 11:00 to 14:00 and for the first time I had the sensation of queueing at this event.

Enjoying the holidays

I hope everyone enjoyed the last few days, had the chance to slow down a little and maybe even had a bit of time to spare on the our beloved hobby. In my case - you remember the test miniatures from the 24th? - I did a bit of progress on the SAGA warbands last thursday.

Games Workshop on the rise?

Most of you probably noticed the drastic change at Games Workshop in the last few month and it seems that their pace in this "conversion" is quite fast.


Still many people are irritated by the transition of Warhammer Fantasy into Age of Sigmar. You have any reason to be, if you're looking for mass combat with large regiments, Age of Sigmar won't be your choice. But remember what is one of the biggest problems in our hobby. The high barrier of entry. And this high barrier is a reason for many other systems to not succeed.

GaleForce9 – Battlefield in a Box

Gale Force 9 offers beside a few board games and hobby accessoires a terrain range of their own, named Battlefield in a Box. These come in several different settings, like Fantasy, Generic or specific for Flames of War in 15mm. But are you limited to use those in 15mm? Not really, and I'm going to prove my point.

Main problem about these sets is the availability. In Germany / Europe they can be fierce to get your hands on, but some time ago - while they were in stock - I got my hands a few sets from the BiaB Flames of War Range.

Let us begin with the rural roads. The set sets you back 45 USD and covers 4 straights and 2 curves, along with a small bag of static grass.
