So Sunday Night Ramblings is back. I’m going to change the format of these posts slightly and use it to look back at everything I’ve done in the last week of the hobby including reviews of anything I’ve watched, read, listened to hobby related that I think is wort sharing with others.
So let’s start off with what have I listened to this week?
Well I started by listening to Episode 33 of Garage Hammer.
Which as ever was a fantastic well put together show. At the moment I’m particularly liking the reviews of all the Special Characters in Warhammer as it’s something I think we have a tendency to overlook.
Next of my Ipod was Podhammer Episode 94
Now these guys have got a lot of stick this year for going off topic and over to the otherside that is Warmachine. Personally I’ve never had a problem with their rants about aspects of Warhammer and their coverage of the Australian price rise and import restrictions was some of the most balanced pieces of podcasting I’ve heard in a long time. This episode mainly features a round up of the Castle Assault tournament as well as their usual banter. A word of warning this is 18+ material.
Thats nearly 6 hours of podcast this week. I’m also part way through another but I’ll cover that next week.
Video wise I got a half hour on Friday whilst wrapping presents for the wifes birthday to watch some youtube. This week I went for two unboxing videos for Ogres
I must say I’m amazed at the level of detail on these new models, you start to see why you’re paying so much for them.
So lets talk blogs. I love blogs me (hence this err.. blog) they’re a great source of inspiration and information. So which ones have particularly stood out for me this week?
First up was @docbungles review of Blu Stuff, as someone who likes to convert and give my armies a unique feel I’m always on the look out for something new to help me.
Next up we have @Risk_Dude’s The Triple Helix Project, what I’m enjoying on here at the moment is his discussion of the fluff for his Warrior of Chaos characters and how it’s fleshing out his army, an inspiration for us all.
And finally for now @Warpstoned’s blog post about taking a non internet friendly Skaven list to his next tournament should be an inspiration to all of us with rodent tendencies.
So hobby wise what have I achieved?
Well my skeleton horde is coming on slowly and I’m hoping to have it ready for painting by this time next week. And other than that life I’m afraid has once again got in the way.
I hope you like this new layout and I’d be interested to know your thoughts on it.
