Ready for some more awesome blog posts to fill your hobby desires? This week’s Good Reads includes some crazy Grot Bikers, Oldhammer comic battles, Doom Rider!!!, Angles, and an award-winning Drake.
Good Reads is a bi-weekly post that gathers up some of my favorite posts and shares them with you. There are amazing hobbyists out there showing their amazing work. Click through to their blogs and give them a follow and a comment!
Custom Grot Bikers
Do you have some spare bits that need a model? Blazmo shames us all with his amazing creation of custom Grot skorchas built with scrap. Some awesome crazy mek work there – and hard to tell where some of the pieces come from, and when you do, the creativity required is impressive!
Old Hammer Battle Report
Sean signed up to be a guest writer on Broken Paintbrush (check out his article this Saturday!) which is how I found his blog. Not only is he a hardcore Oldhammer fan, but he does his battle reports in a comic style. Check the comic reports, and stay for the Oldhammer!
Doom Rider Strikes Again
Speaking of Oldhammer, Rory knocked it out of the park custom Doom Rider build. I have a special fondness for 3rd Edition Chaos Space Marines and all their awesome characters, so seeing Rory’s Doomrider makes me so happy!
Dark Blood Drinkers
While I’m not a huge Blanche fan (I know half of you just booed me right now!) I do appreciate when hobbyists do fantastic conversions and paint jobs to emulate his style. D Power is one of those artists as exemplified by the Angels Encarmine. Also, check out the converted Skitarii at the bottom of the post!
Nurgle Drake by Miniatures of Tomorrow
I’ve been following Miniature of Tomorrow’s work on this Drake for weeks, and it is fantastic to see the completed model – a Nurgle Drake Diorama (Imgur gallery). You can check out his build process and other awesome work on his Tumblr as well.
To emphasize the power your old posts have (and why Thor’s SEO series does help!), The Fantasy Hammer commented on my Broodlord Tutorial from last year saying it helped him paint his own amazing Broodlord from Space Hulk. He clearly took the lesson and turned it up to 11!
That’s it for this week. I hope you found some cool new hobbyists to inspire you or give you nostalgic flashbacks.
