A Couple of Blogs o' Note

Looking through my Blogger dashboard, I 'follow' something like twenty or thirty gaming blogs, they range all over the map and cover lots of genres. I've got a little over forty followers of my own here at Mik's Minis (surprisingly!). The cool thing about being part of an interconnected web of like-minded peeps is the collaboration and interaction with others you would've never even knew existed otherwise. Below are two such sites (and more importantly, two such people) I've come across since firing this thing up that deserve a second look. That's not to say there's not more quality blogs out there though!

The Sons of Twilight

Great blog with a good mix of snippets both old and new. It's focuses mainly on Games Workshop products (specifically 40k and Blood Bowl) and has a lot of tutorials on conversion work for various Space Marine chapters. The Blood Bowl content is worth a look too, as he has a ton of teams and does a good job promoting that oft-forgotten stepchild of GW. Lots of battle reports and tactics posts can be found as well.

Wanna B Painter

The other site more closely resembles my own in that it is (kind of) all over the map. Lots of good article are here on making terrain tables, magnetic movement trays, and other behind-the-scenes type tips that can benefit every gamer's basement. A little Dungeons and Dragons is thrown in for good measure along with Hordes, 40k, and some Warhammer Fantasy as well. There's some good step-by-step painting posts too. Oh wait, did I mention all the gardening posts too, lots of tidbits to be found within.

So there you have it, some unsolicited pimping of other people's blogs. I'll poke around a bit more in my links and see what else I can come up with that's worth your while, but with these two you've got a good place to start at least. Rock on...


  1. Thanks for the kind words. I added your site to my blog roll a couple of weeks ago.

  2. Thanks chief, one hand washes the other, haha...

  3. Thanks for posting both blogs, I am now following both of them. Thank you for bringing them to my attention.

  4. No problem BJ, that's why I'm here! If you're a 40k fan (or GW games in general), then the Sons of Twilight is the blog for you. If you're looking for great tutorials on pretty much anything useful around the game room, Wanna B's got your back!

    Of course I like to plug my little site too...

  5. Wow! Thanks for the mention! I was finally inspired to paint more on my Tharn Ravagers since more people are looking at the site =) Really, thanks again.

    (I thought I posted this earlier but it didn't show up. If another shows up, well, I guess we will just roll with it =)
