Just a few things of note - I got a box of goodies from MicroMark today:
MicroMark is a fantastic resource, but they slip under the radar of a lot of wargamers, since they primarily market themselves to model railroaders / scale modelers. While there is some specialized stuff in their catalog, they have a lot of great stuff for anyone who paints or builds terrain. (I first learned about them when I took a terrain-building seminar at GenCon from David Dresch). The things above were all on my "wish list" for a while, but they did a 50% off sale last week that finally got me to bite. From left to right: pearl tweezer, micro hand drill, micro holding tool, wood strip cutter, & paint mixer. I'm using the wood strip cutter for plasticard, and it's worth it's weight in gold (or at least in plasticard) since it's already saved me tons of waste from futilely trying to cut thin strips by hand. The paint mixer seems a bit lazy, but I'm using the airbrush more lately, and the GW Foundation & other high-pigment paints can take forever to get thoroughly mixed by hand.
I also picked up the new D&D Essentials book, Heroes of the Fallen Lands:
... I mainly picked it up because there are some new powers for my cleric that don't appear in the Player's Handbook, and my DM mentioned that they've rejiggered the feats, which were notoriously fiddly. I've only glanced at it so far, but I like the new size & format, and the fact that it's softcover (maybe that's just because the memory of lugging four full-size hardcover 4th Edition books to my game last weekend is still fresh in my mind). I'm not thrilled that it appears Wizards isn't making anything other than the errata available to players who have already bought the 4th Edition handbooks - not to mention that I've had to buy three separate Player's Handbooks for 4th Edition, and the last one was just released seven months ago...
