OK so I am not Joe B but I am instead Rory /Thousand Eyes from over at Stepping Between Games. I am the guest writer for this weeks Good Reads, the trick here being I use these posts to find the random wonderful blogs from around the blogsphere. As such many of the tutorials I have saved for reference actually came from here, but I am not one to shrink from a challenge.
So here are a few good blog posts for you all:
Thor has done up a wonderful post on painting the skin on his Bloodbowl Ogre, he uses a few more steps that I could have imagined but the work speaks for itself. Truly a great guide to painting up any pink skin.
Painting and Converting Legion of the Dammed
This next Good Read isn’t actually from a blog but from a Relic News forum post back in ’09. It contains a wonderful set of instructions for making Legion of the Dammed, from converting to painting them up. It is one of those pages I visit every now and then and ponder if I have the time to do up a squad.
Trust in Rust 2.0 Battle Report
I am sure many of you are familiar with Greggles over at Feed Your Nerd and if you aren’t then you are in for a treat. Not only does he have a wonderful blog but lately he has been putting up reports of one of the armies I have been most jealous of on the internet for a long time, Trust in Rust. His all kicking, all stomping, all shooting and most missing Dread Mob of epic proportions. In this report he goes head to head with two Tau Stormsurges.

Deadpool in 40K?
Spot1cus has a good look and bringing everyone’s favorite merc with a mouth into 40K. There is a lot of scope for playing around with bringing your super heroes into the game. This one was a good go at it.
Well that is all from me, I shall let you return to your regular scheduled Joe time. I hope the links were of some use to you all. Good Reads demonstrates that there are so many more blogs and articles than any one of us can actually read, but we can rely on Joe finding us some gems.
