Good Reads 50 with Hobby Blogs to Read

Remembering Battle Fleet Gothic

Revisiting Battle Fleet Gothic

A look at Gothic by Caladaris

I never got into Battle Fleet Gothic but it looked like a fun game, and with the growth of other ship based games I wouldn’t be surprised if Games Workshop brings it back. Caladaris dived into his collection and shared what made this game so fun.

On Commenting

Thoughts on Commenting by Morpheus

You may have heard me talking about the importance of community before as it is a big reason why I do this blog. Morpheus on The Fantasy Hammer shares his thoughts on commenting and why it can be so important in our hobby.

Using Lots of Washes

Nurgle Demon by Da Rednekk

I have been getting more into washes and glazes as they can not only be super fast to get a good look but add nice variation and color to parts of your model. Da RednekkBoss talks about the goodness of washes as he paints layer after layer on his custom Nurgle Demon Lord.

Massive Orruk Conversion

Massive Orruk by Jake on Ex Profundis

The Orruk Megaboss is a fantastic (not so) miniature, but Jake has turned his up to 11 by using the Ogroid Thaurmaturge body and resculpting his face. This is an excellent example of taking a vision of a model and crafting it together with bits and green stuff.

Thoughts on the New Dwarves

Love it or hate it, Games Workshop has done a lot changes since Age of Sigmar. Wudugast dives into these changes and discusses his thoughts on the new Overlords. With a mix of sorrow for the Old World and an excitement of what may come.

Librarian on a Move

Librarian with Jump Pack

Librarian by Cylde

Cylde’s Atlantis Warriors are a cool combination of green-turquoise and orange. He just finished his Librarian with a jump pack, and remarkably with an airbrush! It’s a cool mix of bits from Games Workshop to Anvil Industries.

Dynamic Pictures

Taking Dynamic pictures of miniatures

Dynamic Pictures by Blazmo

I’ve posted a few times on how to improve your photography skills for miniatures, but Blazmo shows us how to use a few pieces of scenery, lights, and angles to take dynamic images of our models.

  • Ohhh I missed some of those. Cheers.

  • Another great selection, and i’m in. Just one thing my colors are green-turquoise and orange. This is blue because it is a librarian but look at shoulderpads and left arm. This is the main colour

    • Ah thanks Cylde, I’ve updated the description.

  • Thanks as always for being included.

    Also, a great selection of articles. Just commented on the comment one, now to read some others 🙂
