And I’m back! Well at least enough to pull a Good Reads together for you. Life is still a bit crazy, but I have three interviews lined up this week and two offers already in hand, so the next job thing is looking good.
Now onto some Good Reads! Some of these are a few weeks back, just working through some back log!
I’ve only recently started following Kraut Scientist, but man he has some inspirational kit bashes. Seeing as the Iron Warriors were my first 40k army back in 3rd edition, I couldn’t help but love Kraut’s take on a small kill team.
His posts are also epic stories of his thoughts, work in progress, and finally some painted minis.
With the improvements in cameras, digital editing software, and light-boxes we are able to see our minis in very high detail – much more detail than with our own eyes. This inspired Adam over on Sprue Grey to write a post on his struggles and breakthroughs on painting viewed by the camera. He gets very honest with himself as well and how we can all learn to improve our painting.
Even with all the cool Mechanicus plastics GW put out, Forge World still has a crazy cool catalog. The GunGrave from A Guardsmen Guide to Glory painted up the Arch Magos brilliantly. He also takes some great pictures of the creepy underside of his armor – and man did the sculptor go to town.
M4cro was featured a few months back with his Iron Snakes squad, a very much classical Greek inspired army. He has now finished his Contemptor Dreadnought and it is a thing of beauty. From the plasma glow to the cool Scibor base decoration, it is something well worth checking out.
When GW redid the Dark Eldar line, the new Talos was a huge improvement over the old metal monster. The creepiness and character was very clear. NafNaf from Objective Secured decided to go even further and create his own creepy monsters for his carnival. It appears that many bits were tortured by the flesh artists in the making of this rocket shod, buzz-saw handed, monster.
That’s it for this week. As always, I encourage you to drop by their sites and give them a follow. Also, if you think I’m missing out on some amazing hobby blogs, drop the links below – again its crazy that I just recently found Kraut Scientist!
