Too busy to keep up with all the hobby awesome over the last two weeks? Then check out this week’s Good Reads! I’ve found an awesome lineup including Greg’s amazing Deff Dread, planting blood and gore, and more awesome articles by fellow hobbyists.
Blood and Acid Tutorial
I shared The Fantasy Hammer’s Broodlord last time, but he returns with a great tutorial on adding gore and slime to your models. He makes it seem so easy, but with the right tools it probably is.
Combining fantasy (or Age of Sigmar I guess) models into the 40k world can create some awesome characters. Thomas took the Slaughterpriest and created a custom Warpsmith for his army. Shows what you can do with spare bits and some guitar string.
Magnetizing a Knight
Mike has finished up his White Scars (only for the moment, I’m sure!) to build up a Knight Titan. But he wanted to do ALL the knight types… Solution: magnetize every bit of the Knight. He shows how with a ton of pictures so you can give it a try as well.
A Dread Above All Others
Nova Open is having their annual raffle to raise money for Doctors Without Borders (buy tickets to win an army!). Each model is painted by awesome people like Greg who spent countless eons adding about a billion layers to the Deff Dread above. Seriously, check out the finished model, then read his WIP posts – epic stuff.
Squashing Rumors With A Teaser
I’m normally not one to spread rumors about new releases that may or may not be coming out soon. I find them distracting at best, and disappointing at worst. But when the guys at WarhammerTV released their response to a ‘leaked’ image of the new Ahriman, I was impressed. It shows the changes that are coming from GW lately and getting more involved with the community.
Space Wolf Breacher Squad
I personally love the mix of Greek mythos and Sci Fi grimdark. So you can see why I like Dave’s Space Wolf Breacher squad. Well, that and he did a fantastic job of painting them. Check out the detail work on the shield and a nice grittiness to the whole unit.
Good Reads Wrap Up
I hope I brought you something new or inspiring for you this week. It’s a fun process to find these articles and share them with you.
Want to have your articles featured in Good Reads? If your posts haven’t been featured here, it’s most likely because I am not following your blog! So hit me up in the comments to make sure I check it out.
My criteria for making my list is fairly simple. I tend to post tutorials, cool conversions, or thoughtful discussions. From there it often comes down to when I catch each of the articles and my energy level of the time (sorry, I’m a busy guy too!).
If you enjoyed the posts above, I hope you leave a comment on their post and let them know!
