Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


I showed off a number of tools this week. It started with Safety Goggles then continued with Tin Snips and Pipe Cutters. The work on my postapocalyptibuggy began air brushing. And, in blog-fu, I wrote a very detailed post on getting your own .com for your blog, as well as highlighted a new Views feature to Blogger.

Last Week in the Community


(I may have missed some as I didn't get as much time as I'd like to have to read blogs this weekend, but I was visiting family, so it's all good.)

Because these types of articles mean a lot of me, I'll going to bring light to it here. James over at Warp Signal talks about matters similar to my punk art series http://warpsignal.wordpress.com/2011/03/28/painting-outside-the-lines/


It takes a big man to admit defeat, especially in public. Larry over at Paint Your Toys is wondering what a gamer is to do when they don't win - lets give him some suggestions

Tips


Vallejo is apparently releasing paint on primers of a polyurethane base http://www.acrylicosvallejo.com/blog/2011/01/surface-primer/
I'm intrigued, but unsure.. urethane is usually a plastic or rubber base, which tends to be a pain to paint on.
