Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft

The Postapocalyptibuggy nears completion...

Now that Blood of Kittens showed the winners of their Adepticon coverage, I posted up my memes. In blog-fu I talked about feed footers.. and finally I began rebroadcasting your content in a B2B new Then and Now series.

I've also got some more sites up on the Network page - go check it out!

Ron is back at it - From the Warp has been reborn!

Sons of Taurus talks about something special... closeted gamers... that's right... Smurfs.

Last year, The Storm Wardens project raised over $16,000 for Doctors Without Borders. This year, they're getting together again on a new project to once again raise money for them... see all the details here: http://heroesofarmageddon.blogspot.com/


Craftworld Lansing has some great upcoming news about Eldar and Forgeworld. I'm excited, but I also can't help but think it's a bit of a cash grab against Eldar players behind the times and desperate for something new. Even from a background perspective, it sounds like Forgeworld is taking steps that Games Workshop should have years ago. (and have for, say, Space Marines.. through thick, multiple codexes and literally a library worth of novels)

Nesbet has a chart for how much paint to use to create other GW colours: http://nesbetminiatures.blogspot.com/2011/04/tutorial-getting-citadel-colours.html
(including the now gone tentacle pink)

He's also got paint equivalence charts to compare brands colours against eachother: http://nesbetminiatures.blogspot.com/2010/02/resource-paints-equivalence-charts.html
(Great for people like me who move to areas without stores that carry GW brand anything.. just keep in mind there will be differences - for example, I find that P3 paints aren't as vibrant as GW, meaning for certain colours I need to keep GW on hand if I want them bright)

  1. Thanks for the mention. Together we can fight this discrimination!

  2. Hehe, yeah, no problem :) My good buddy I started gaming with wayyy back when plays Ultramuhrines (proudly though) so I had to throw that out there. Amusing article too, while discussing some pretty valid things.
