Joining a blogging movement - Old Stuff Day

On Valentines Day Robat Warhammer 39,999 suggested we all start a blogging movement to show a little love () for some of our old posts.

So here's one of my posts that I think deserves a little more love via the filthy art of 'thread-o-mancy' my free wound markers [with an update]...

If you've got plenty of high wound characters, or if like my son you are running Tyranids then sooner or later you're going to have to deal with recording wounds. There's a number of options, put a dice down [preferrably a small one], buy wound markes or note it down on a piece of paper. The first two cost money, or are annoying if you're using all your lucky dice just to keep track and the last one's also a pain in the hive mind.

Alternatively you can make your own, so I did. All you need to do is print them out, attach to mounting card, cover in sellotape for pseudo one sided lamination and then cut them out, voila!

You can use the blue markers for your Doom of Malantai, thanks to his Spirit Leech having a maximum of 10 wounds! There's also a few 3-5 wound markers for you Tervigon, enjoy.
Of course you can also use these for your Dark Eldar pain tokes [that's the update].

On top of that I thought I'd resurrect some of these other blogs 'old' articles that deserve a dusting off and a little bit of love  ()


  1. First, I have to thank you for being one of the few people that recognizes the proper trademark of my name. :)

    Second, I liked this post just like I did the first time you posted it--giving away free things is great, but your blog has so much great content, I hope people take the time to dig up your posts on buildings and tyranids as well.

    Lastly, props for pointing people to other blogs... especially Maunderings, who's been silent for far too long...

  2. I'll second that - it's exactly right: this blog has so much excellent content just waiting to be rediscovered. It's one of the highest quality 40K and wargaming blogs. Anyone reading this who hasn't already should have a good browse through past posts.

  3. Cheers guys, your support is awesome. I've quite a few things that are simmering away at the moment and I'm trying to focus on something so I can get some progress to show everyone:

    Dark Angel Drop Pod,
    Dark Angel Dreadnought,
    Dark Angel Deathwing Squad,
    Finish off my 7 feet of fences,
    The vent tower,
    Plasma Hatcher Mycetic Spore,
    Home made Mycetic Spore, and
    I just got the Honored Imperium scenery set which I'll be trying to emulate b.smoove at a Gentleman's Ones awesome Verdigris -

    just with a Red planet base. Lots to come just so little time...

  4. Yeah, I've already got B's verdigris tutorial bookmarked and the statues purchased myself.

    When you say 7 feet of fences, is that 2+ meters of fences?

  5. Yep, 2+ metres! Each fence is 6 inches long and I've 14 of them, insane!
