okay...the sperm clinic part , we didn't need to know , lol..

but , I agree if you are talking about casting... everyone here has some pretty good ideas...just may I say that , for gluing foam board , extra hot glue sticks...lord knows these things are used up pretty quick...and replacment sharp blades for what ever you are using to cut the foam board (in my case, I use a "fiskars 45mm rotary cutter)

Great suggestions everyone!

It scares me that I've only been customizing for about a year and I have almost everything on the list already!!!!!  Maybe thats a good thing or a bad thing.

I think I'm going with the basic supplies:
More reaper paints (thanks to Hemble for that tip)
More paint brushes
More expoy (greenstuff)
Storage containers
Krazy Glue

another one I came up with is a lighted magnifying glass (for painting details).

I'm going to look into a Wax Pen, Hot Knife, and Dental Probes and Monster Maker Clay too!!

Thanks again for all the suggestions.

I get lots of tools for micro work...  Files, butane torch pen, X-Acto, Dremel Bits I want, etc...  I think casting kit is a good gift too if you wanna give that a go.

Paint's always a good one too...  I can always use more Tamiya paint in some bulk and keep a list of what I have/don't have on me in my wallet incase I'm near a hobbyshop.

I order a lot of stuff from MicroMark aaround my birthday time or Christmas.
