Hey guys! It's me, and no I didn't do any 40k stuff this week, other then read and look at pretty photos of mini's. (And all your blogs!). Instead I dived into my quest to play more steam games I bought and never played. I spent the last week playing darksider, after beating xenonauts.
Darksiders is a hack and slash metroid/zelda style game, with excellent music and art direction. It has a god of war style gameplay (with combo's and such), with progression based on unlocks, like metroid freeze beams, or finding the boomarang in zelda. It was a blast to play, and I can't believe it took me so long to finally install it. If you have any interest in it, wait for the sales on steam around black friday and xmas. It'll be a few dollars. (I played it with a xbox360 windows controller).
On to other subjects! As I talked about last week, I'll now share what channels I visit for painting/building tutorials! I hope you find some of them useful! (Greg is being super lazy cause it's cold...you guys are all far to productive!)
Though not strickly about painting...Rob's channel covers the unboxing of many a forgeworld product line. Since I will never get to see many of these models, and never see them from the bag on, it's really nice to see how these chunks of resin go together and look out of the box!
Roemer led me to this youtube page. These are incredibly detailed tutorials, using advanced techniques...or at least gentlemen with really high talent levels. Still nice to watch to learn a few tips! (I should rephrase. The paint jobs are intimidatingly good).
Eons of battle popped up a few months ago, and they are masters of the quick tutorial. They go over a number of quick techniques, product reviews, and base making in short time spans (2-4 minutes). A great way to cover a lot of little tips rather rapidly. Some of the tutorials are a bit basic, but there is always something to learn in the hobby!
This is one of my favorite blogs. He spends a good amount of time going over how to magnetize things to maximize your hobby money, how to break things up for sub assembly, just great stuff. He also shows plenty of scale photos...which you can never have enough of!
Misterjustin from secret weapon has started doing 2 minute (or close to that) tutorials. I took a few classes with him, and he's a very laid back and easy speaker, so the tutorials flow well, and are easy to follow. Some of the tips might seem obvious, but that's only after you've heard them!
After pasting a bunch of these, I realized I don't really have that many! If anyone has any recommendations, please do share. I'm always looking for new places to visit and learn from! And with that, I leave you with this inspiration that just showed up on my feed.
I DID NOT MAKE THIS. Now with that out of the way, I was planning on converting an imperial knight into an ork gork/morkanaut, and this pretty much confirms that when I do, it will look frigging awesome! Have a good week everyone!
