beat ronin here with a Top X. Really any time you look over our roll, there’s stuff that’s interesting and worth drawing attention to. So what you get at any given time in a Top X says a lot about the Top X-host I reckon.
It’s always fun for me to see the different things the writers here pick when they step up to do one of these, and I’ve never done one so here we go…
First up I really enjoyed this Judge Dredd battle report by Adam D. at The Dice Abide. I like the tone of this post, it captures the 80s madness of 2000AD well, plus, nice paint jobs! I like the comic book-y colours.
Certs is better-known around here for his most excellent Infinity blog, but as a failed Infinity player I found his anime recommendation equally useful. It’s hard to find a good old sword-swingin’ anime in the sea of occult horror, schoolgirls with giant pairs of scissors, and high school music clubs. Cheers mate.
Bellarius at The Good, The Bad and the Insulting has written a nice article highlighting ten of the best neglected Space Marine chapters (Mentor Legion 4 life, yo). A poor jaded 40k player dropped in and had a bit of a moan (I’m sure we’ve all been that guy), so head over and inject some positivity into the discussion!
Cadianshock has a nice run-down of his first experiences with an airbrush. It’s nice and clear, informative and worth a read. I enjoyed it, since I have an airbrush but have never been able to get the damn thing to work. It was nice to vicariously spray someone else’s tanks…
Ah, Claws and Fists. I love the tagline: it’s so self-deprecatingly English (and funny) to my leathery colonial eyeballs. Anyway, Grazer has written a step-by-step how-to for joining the worldwide 30k campaign being run by my friend Dono, the amazing one-man-grimdark-gaming community. Dono runs great narrative campaigns locally (by which I mean both in Canberra and Australia), and is taking his love of the Horus Heresy worldwide apparently. So now I am pimping Grazer’s pimping. If you like 30k get amongst it.
And finally, corrm at St. Andrew’s wargaming has presented some of his fondest memories of wargaming, and invites all of us to join in the reminiscing. These sorts of posts are always fun. Suck, it Nagash… the number of times childhood-me perfectly estimated my Dwarf cannon-shot and took his head clean off. It was uncanny. Good times.
Eh, that’s probs enough for now.
Have a good one, and I’ll hopefully see you next week with more bloggery goodness!
