Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update

Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


Here's a wrap up of a bunch of the charity projects going on in the community.

Most of my time has been taken up finishing my Postapocalyptibuggy - see the final photos or the work in progress. In blog-fu I talked about going low res.

You can now subscribe to have articles emailed to you. Represented by the RSS-eMail icon.

I've changed some of wargamingtradecraft.com's layout. Rather than eating up a bunch of the space on the right side of my site with larger spelled out links, I've created a bunch of icons to do the job. This also bridges the language barrier for foreign readers.
Thanks to Trevor from Facebook who also pointed out the difficulty of reading my links on the right hand bar - I've had the same layout for ages and never really considered that. So, I've added white backgrounds to most of the widgets to try and make things easier to read.

  1. Another week, another update chock full of sweet links. I especially like the highlighting tutorial from From the Warp. Highlighting is something I'm still working on learning.

    Thanks for the shout-out on the pinning tutorial. It has really been a smash hit and is quickly nearing double the page views of the next most popular post. I never imagined it would get this popular when I wrote it. It's very satisfying to come up with an original idea and have it so widely appreciated.

    Good luck on the car competition. Hopefully we will hear something about it this week.
