Community Pimp: Pimpin’ Time

Damn near every blog does one of these so I may as well! Seriously, I come across some really good stuff that deserves some additional attention, so here it is.

Delusions of Grandeur: Weapons vs. Fists – Xaereth discusses the differences, other than the obvious, between those two weapons and his views on their best use. He introduces something I had never considered, utilizing different initiative steps to help achieve victory in assault. It’s a good short read so check it out.

Wargaming Tradecraft: Back to Basics – Sci Fi – Dave has a great tutorial that introduces you to an entry level method for painting NMM (non-metallic metals). He and Ron over at From the Warp have been doing this Back to Basics series and the articles are well worth checking out.

Inquisitor Lord Aki: The Alternative Tournament Part I – The Problems With Tournaments – Aki addresses his views on what is wrong with tournaments and turns it into a four part series explaining what he feels is a better format. He’s not just bitching about it, he’s trying to give options. It may not be for everyone but there’s some great ideas in there.

    Thanks for the shout out :) Always a pleasant surprise to get one :P

    • Been meaning to ask you. Based on your avatar I assume you’re a fan of the Wheel of Time series?

    Yeah man, for sure! Mat Cauthon is probably my favorite character in the fantasy genre, and certainly for Wheel of Time. You read it too?

    • Course I read it. How else would I know the avatar was from WoT :P My favorite is Perrin by far. Mat used to annoy the hell out of me but he’s grown on me over the series. Right now I’m about 75% through Towers of Midnight. I don’t want to finish it but I can’t stop myself.

        haha, I finished ToM in less than a week after it came out. My grades suffered for it, but… I just couldn’t put it down. Dangerous for it to come out so late in the semester, heh.

        • Yeah, I didn’t start reading it until last week, had another book I was in the middle of that I had to finish. I hate bouncing between books without finishing them.
