Each week, I try and post what I've been working on as I go along. The other day, I commented on a post as to why I don't leave many comments anymore. The short of it was that if I were to comment on every blog in the FTW blog rolls (and spent only a minute on each one), it would take me over 11 hours to go through all of them.
I feel as though I'm cheating those I don't comment on when I only leave comments on a few posts each week. Like there is some kind of special criteria I use or something. Truth is, my time is so limited and I don't get as much time as I would like just to cruise the rolls these days. When I do leave it comment, it's because someone has pointed me to something or I found it and it struck a nerve with me.
I've decided that today, I will not post anything that I'm working on and I will point you all to the blogs that I left comments on for the past few days. So sit back, enjoy the change of pace today and take a look through the few things I found that caught my eye enough to leave a comment.
The first two did not get comments, but they are regular stops for me.
The Barter Bucket each weekend on Santa Cruz Warhammer to see if there is anything I have in my tiny bits collection that might help someone out.
The Heroes of Armageddon updates found around the web. This time it happened to be on Dave Taylor's site where he just got the foam for the Steel Legion army. Man I wish I was able to have done a banner for those guys too along with the Blood Angels one I did.
Where I did leave a few comments:
1. Excommunicate Traitoris posted a very cool looking Wolf Guard Terminator.
While I don't play Wolves, the picture caught my eye in the roll and I like the muted paintjob. Besides it's always interesting to see how Wolf players go about tackling the "gery armour"... similar to seeing how other Deathwing players paint their bone color.
2. Cupboard of Nurgle caught my eye with his headline, "How to make smoke and wreckage markers." A very cool and simple effect it turns out I've seen before, but it's cool to see someone take the time to share how it's done step by step.
3. Grey Knights of Titan caught my eye with the headline of "Painting Grey Knights classic color scheme" It's a nice step by step article on how to get a better than average look to the blue tinted silver effect. The real reason I stopped by though was that I thought Grey Knights were originally gold way back when.
4. The Eagle of the ninth's headline on how to make your own weathering powders got me to stop by for sure. Things like this that interest me and can potentially save me money are definite stops during the day.
5. Blood for the Blood Angels grabbed my attention by mentioning FTW in his Thank You post intro and I usually stop by to see what folks have to say when they do that. Turns out it was a simple thank you for being added to the FTW blogrolls so I made it a point to welcome him to the Group again.
6. Dug-a-Tron's Dark Angels posted this thunderhammer conversion that caught my eye. Very simple and gives them a completely different look.
7. Iron Wolves posted this "Fixing Drop Pod doors" post and after recognizing the picture he used, I wanted to see what exactly he did with it. Turns out he used a couple of my pics and was able to point out a key aspect of making sure your pod doors close properly.

But what should I post about?
