Old stuff Day 2024

Morning #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity it's #OldStuffDay 2024. Quite a few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs. To choose one of your own blogposts that you're most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you were to share blogposts from other bloggers which you thought deserved the same spotlight of attention before they were returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

Here's some great posts from other bloggers. Apologies to the many great bloggers out there I haven't included, you do sterling work too, these are just the ones I was reminded to remember over the last 12 months [or remembered from previous Old Stuff Days]:

From The Warp
As always, Ron From the Warp remains the inspiration for the blog. it may be 12 year's since he stepped away from blogging and we only shared the blogosphere for 18 months or so but you acknowledge those that came before and he did it so well. It might be slightly challenging to navigate now but there is so much great content here for those willing to explore - fill your boots.

How to sculpt greenstuff cloaks:
I love counter and markers, and Ron shows you how he made his
Now this is not old but Ron has thrown his hat back in the blogging ring repeatedly, often about his love of Space Hulk. This is his latest blog with some interesting posts.

Liam from Blue Warp Studios
We were still reeling from lockdown and Liam had a bad back but this was the tipping point for #MESBG one game and he was hooked. He probably has more warbands than all of us now.
Next up he did some great reposing for his chaos knight Armigers. I was referring to these when I was reposing my latest Armiger additions. Well worth consulting if you want to repose your diddy knights.

Marc at Old School Gaming
It's always nice to look back at that first post, the one that got you started in this often unremarkable world of blogging. Your first shout into the void, and Marc does a grand job of setting out his stall and sharing his passion for the hobby.

A wealth of Titan Building posts on the Weemen blog. If you ever plan on building a Warlord titan, you should check out Siph's guide, there are plenty of links to WiPs to help get you through the biggest of hobby projects.

Les Kouzes
I love what these guys do, I've probably shared these posts many times before but they're undeniably worth visiting again.

Heresy and heroes
John at Heresy and heroes did a cool hobby desk photo essay back before he joined GW and stopped blogging. As he's returned to the blogosphere maybe we'll get an update. Show the post some love and we might help make that happen.

Painting Bunker
I think about this blog  quite often, because the scenery was exquisite. It hasn't had an update in 7 years, which is a shame as they were getting into Epic at the time and I suspect Legio Imperialis is right up their street now

Eye of Error
I've shared this before, but I still think the Mariner's Blight army was one of the best I've ever seen 

From the Fang
For so long my hobby efforts were intertwined with my tournament events. Alex organised the best tournaments at Element Games. They were always fun and this last doubles tournament was the only time we faced off. This was his battle report. I know it's out of date with current edition, but it's still a fun read, because 'dice tell stories'!

My blog
And my take on the same battle

I wrote this post about Hoshi Komi 13 year's ago. I mention how my brother met someone who was into role playing and miniatures. That person was in fact Otty, who continues to be a driving force in my hobby crew - encouraging us with MESBG, Turnip28 and Bolt Action. Maybe one day he'll get back into 40k!

Happy Old Stuff Day! I hope these Old Stuffs are of interest.

  1. It feels like such a long time ago now. It took your post to remind me that last year was my 10th year of blogging :-)
