Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update


Weekly Update

This week saw another Back to Basics post, investigating Metallic Armour. I also wrote two posts for my Punk Art series - the first as a follow up to the original one and the second talking about painting from the heart.

I've also tweaked my Musings Page to organize how I index older talkie posts better and added LinkWithin to the bottom of my posts.

It seems like a bunch of blogs all had the same idea about starting series to help new bloggers start up their own sites. Well, mine just happens to be starting this week as well - I've written a bunch already so I won't fall behind. For at least the next two months, you'll be able to find some blog tips every Thursday with the label "blog-fu". (I've already got a few blog related tips if you click that link)

Massive Voodoo is running a contest! Build your own mad max car, no figures, small arms only (if at all) and have fun! I'll probably enter this and once I begin, I'll post work in progress updates.
They've also got an incredible Han Solo mini: http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/2011/01/han-solo-star-wars.html
