Community Feedback: What Would You Like to See?

A lot has changed on the blog over the years. Most for the better, some for the worse, but always intended to move forward and grow. Blogging and growing a community is a learning experience for sure.

To that end, I just wanted to set up an open forum to the readers of the blog, the community, to see what you all would like to see here. Is there something we’re not doing that you feel would be great to see? Are we doing something infrequently that you’d like to see more of? Would you like to see us cover more gaming systems than just 40K? All is fair game.

I know I would like to get back into doing some tutorials but just haven’t had the time as it’s a rather time consuming process. I was thinking of doing some on painting but wasn’t 100% sure what exactly. I was leaning towards some back to basics type of stuff like base coating, edge highlighting, washes, etc. Then later on move into the stuff I’m playing with these days like OSL, wet blending and such. If any of this is of interest then please let me know as I’m open to suggestions since you all see what I do and might have something specific in mind that I haven’t considered. It’s always different on the other side of the monitor, hence this post :)

I would also like to get back into working on video battle reports. I really like the format I’ve used in the past. The videos generally end up 10-12 minutes in length and cover all the important details without bogging down in watching dice rolls. A big drawback for me on this has been getting more of my stuff painted as I hate doing videos with unpainted stuff. I suppose that means I need to get back into a painting routine…

So again, I’d love to hear from you all on the things you’d like to see here. Don’t be shy.

  • You pretty much mention the two things I would like to see more about here, tutorials and more gaming systems. I don’t have an interest in PP’s games but they are very popular and Bolt Action is growing quite fast. If you expand into other systems, maybe get a new writer to help out with that system.

    As for the tutorials, I love to read hobby ones (which I do way to much, it’s a great way to learn new things), everything from color theory to basing and everything in between.

    • Thank you for the feedback.

      I am trying to recruit authors for other gaming systems currently as I just don’t have the time to play any others.

      Hobby tutorials is on the agenda for sure. I just have to get some projects going that will lend themselves to a walk-through. Hopefully in the next few weeks.

  • I’m not really into reading about other gaming systems since I don’t really have any time get into another one but board games are nice to read about. Other than that – narrative gaming, modelling and painting and written battle reports.

    • Great. Thanks for the response.

    I enjoy video Batreps but have loved sitting back and reading about your experience, its what makes your Blog so great. If you maybe meshed them. A 15 minute highlight of the battle but a written response to the after action would be excellent. Maybe some thoughts from your opponent would add to it. I really think you should expand into other systems, a quick skirmish game could find a way into your life with a little bit of wiggle. I have a ton I’m working through and glad i did.

    • I certainly wouldn’t do all bat reps as videos. Too much time involved there, as you well know. It would be more of a once in a while thing, just more often than one a year; about my going rate.

      I honestly just don’t have the time to pick up anything else. Lately I’m barely managing to get to XRG on account of life and my hobby time is virtually non-existent lately. I would only have time for another game if I replaced 40K with it and that’s not something I’m about to do.

        Give it some thought, one thing to realize is that 40k is a game with a lot of time requirements attached to it. Like in your article almost three to four hours can make up a game and units are larger and numerous with need. Other smaller games like your love of Bloodbowl take almost no effort to prepare and an hour to play. Plus variety is the spice of life ,😁

        • I would love to play Bloodbowl. It’s just that I have the one night to play, 40K night. That and nobody has shown interest in Bloodbowl :(
