Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update

Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


Busy week, lots of good content posted. I started the week by talking about Your Work Area, then How to Light It and how to Store Your Bits. Blog-Fu's content this week was Creating Your Own Widget.

Work on the Postapocalyptibuggy has continued and I think it's ready for paint!

The big news this week is that this site is now located at www.WargamingTradecraft.com ! Go to the announcement post to read about the details.

Also, my post on Bringing a New Style to the Hobby hit 2000+ views this past week and I just think that's awesome, having so many people viewing it. It blows me away that people are still checking it out so many months later. I do have plans to explore what I talked about in there once the Postapocalyptibuggy is complete.

Charity


Massive Voodoo has listed some minis that they and others have painted and placed on eBay. 100% of the proceeds of these auctions will go to Japan relief. If you'd like to help raise money, contact them and they'll plug your own eBay mini auctions. Or, check out the auctions they show off and place a bid.
