Its the end of August and the blacksmith got his monthly box of cool goodies in the mail. Thats right our Tabletop Monthly box arrived. For those of you who don't know Tabletop Monthly is a subscription service where they gather a set of items each month that are related to tabletoop gaming, and fantasy modeling. I chose the warbox option which, gives you a monthly box full of war game supplies such as, Paints, Paint brushes, Miniatures, sand, model accessories, etc. Each box contains a nice cache to keep you stocked and ready to enjoy your hobby, along with occasionally adding miniatures and terrain projects to increase your collection of modular pieces.
So lets open up the box and see what we got:

First every box from Tabletop Monthly comes with a packing sheet that shows what you got, a little background info and and pricing. Also they advertise a neat contest they hold each month.
Army Painter Basic Brush Set
First up we got a pack of Army Painter brushes. This is a basic staple for any war gammer's modeling supplies. The set comes with the following
1 standard brush - this is you goto brush to so your base painting where you block out all your main color areas on your figure or model.
1 dry brushing brush - This is meant to hold very little paint and the get dragged over the surface of your model so all the raised surfaces get painted.
1 small detail brush - Here we have our fine detail brush that you use to do any tiny work like painting eyes, and hand painting your highlights on the raised surfaces.
All in all a good set. I was able to find the set on Amazon for $12.50.

A package of Krazy Glue
Moving along they gave us a bottle of world famous Krazy Glue. You know the stuff where the construction worker glues his helmet to an I-beam. This is great for glueing together anything made of ceramics, wood, plastic (PVC, ABV, ERP), rubber, metal and glass. This bottle has a large size and sure-grip panel make it easy to apply. Then we have a small precision tip to get in little areas.
Krazy glue is available everywhere. This bottle can be found for 2 - 5 bucks depending on where you get it.
