Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update


Weekly Update

Slow week... obviously - you can probably tell since the last post is also a "Weekly Update". Just been having trouble getting back into the groove after bronchitis and wasting time with video games. (after a day's work while being medicated, there wasn't the energy for much else) Anyways, slowly getting back into my groove again so expect a brief period of things picking up before I'm on vacation at the end of the month. (I'll see if I can schedule anything to keep you entertained while I'm away) There are a couple posts coming up - Wednesday is the next Back to Basics, and somewhere around that I'll get a post out on dry brushing.

Also, as mentioned, it's a holiday month - so when TheWife and I are freezing in the cold this Friday and Saturday night collecting for local charity, why not hunt somewhere in your own city where you can offer some time/money/food/toys.

Now, a great update on Santa Cruz' Bishkek 2nd Basilisk: http://santacruzwarhammer.blogspot.com/2010/11/bishkek-2nd-basilisk-part-7.html

Ron's written a good tutorial on magnetizing a Space Marine Dread. Magnets really are awesome.

Lamenter from Master of the Forge has a great series on Artscale marines if you're into that thing. (or if you haven't heard of it before) http://masteroftheforge.com/tag/artscale/

Now, when you're basing (http://strictlyaverage.blogspot.com/2010/11/top-tip-simple-flocking.html from Brent) what sort of styles do you do? (http://sonsoftaurus.blogspot.com/2010/11/all-of-us-are-belong-to-our-basing.html from Sons of Taurus) and (http://kennedy40k.blogspot.com/2010/12/basing-reply-of-sorts.html from Kennedy)

Go read Thor's post on being true to yourself rather than just doing what Internet says. http://creativetwilight.com/2010/12/being-true-to-yourself-as-a-player/


  1. Shameless plug if you are doing basing posts (this is about a month or 2 old though)

  2. I appreciate the plug. Hope you recover soon. Looking forward to more good painting advice.

  3. Heh, thanks. I'm basically better, but now TheWife has it.

  4. What games are you wasting time with?

  5. Mostly it was Puzzle Dimension... but I pwned it and got 10th place on Steam.. Little bit of Torchlight also. Then a little bit of the obligatory Borderlands and Left 4 Dead with TheWife, my futurepocalypse survival buddy.
