Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update


Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft

Was hoping to get another WIP done, but was a little under the weather. Instead, you get a long post all about glue. If you've already read it, give it another read... I realized I missed a few things and a reader pointed out I missed something as well.

There's been a bunch of referral traffic on a missing point in my post about Vehicle Damage Order. Basically that if a model can't see ANY of the facing it's in, but can still see SOME part of the vehicle, the cover save increases to 4+ from 3+. I've updated the post and the downloadable PDF. (Just, next time, why not let me know instead of lording your genius over others, kthx? However, thanks for the traffic.)

  1. Thanks for the round-up. There's a lot of good stuff I'd never see if not for you listing it. Somehow I even missed the zenithal lighting at FTW so I'm glad you had it here.

  2. Thank you again for the vehicle damage chart. I keep forgetting to say thank you!

    Also, thanks for the plug. I'm really enjoying this series.

  3. You're most welcome, and thank yous for the feedback.

    Time constraints have forced me to seriously clean house the blogs I read regularly, focusing just on those that are mainly hobby related

  4. I've been doing the same, but in another direction, more towards theory. Hopefully that won't be for too much longer because it's clear I'm missing out.
