Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update

Weekly Update


Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


As you may have noticed, there haven't been many updates recently. I have been hobbying though, and getting back in to the groove... even hit my roughly 1 model per week, week and half that I was doing back before all the crazyness this last almost year now.

I did post a progress report on where things stood though, and just finished the UA for my Warlock Stonebearer unit. That post included a tutorial on how to freehand paint a feathered cloak, which awesomely showed up on TutoFig. (If you haven't checked that site out before, I highly recommend it)

Also, for the Privateer Players out there, I also wrote up a tutorial on how to control an Android mobile from your PC.
