Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update

Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


The Postapocalyptibuggy has started strong, so take a look at the series. I discuss barcodes on this week's Blog-Fu. Old Stuff Day was a hit, thanks to all who dropped me some feedback on those older articles.

Learn about modelling putty, WHICH I'VE UPDATED since the original post. Apparently it contains acetone. (Took a look after Karitas suggested it might contain something that makes it hard to distribute/find)

My new Network Page has been growing strong, hitting a total of 35 quality blogs. I highly recommend checking them out, AND sending me an email using the criteria from that page and I'll add you to the list, growing the index of our blogs.
