Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update


Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft

The Postapocalyptibuggy continues.

I discuss Creating Fake Weld Points, Preventing Super Glue from Drying and Link Within.

Updated my "Supplies" and "Manual Drills" page as I was in a hobby store and actually saw a few in packaging.. apparently they're supposed to be called a "Pin Vice"

Last Week in the Community

Dream Forge games has put out a call to get community support in building their Iron Core system. People who help with anything from rules to typos and eventually beta testing will earn points to track their involvement - These people will then be able to have their names / alias' immortalized in the Iron Core universe.

Also, a final reminder, the 15th is the last day for the Blood of Kittens Meme Contest:

Studio McVey has released it's FREE Sedition Wars ruleset here. Their models are a little expensive, but look great and are quite detailed.


  1. "Think you're good with tiny tools? http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/the-book-surgeon-15-pieces"

    I'm speechless. That is just... I don't know...

  2. Just should clarify that the rules you linked at the bottom aren't official, or by Studio McVey.

    I wrote them with Mike's permission to add in rules for Sedition Wars as I saw fit:

    The minis are awesome though, well worth the money.
