Blogroll additions

Some blogs fall silent and others rise up. Shout outs to these ones which have been earning my attention lately. Some of these I've actually been following for some time, and others I since only recently. You'll find them in the blogroll starting today.

Here are several in the OSR vein:

  • Hill Cantons—long-running and always top quality
  • Ten Foot Pole—features often scathing reviews of PDF modules. Good for whether you want a good module or the plentiful lessons in how not to suck.
  • Hack & Slash
  • Gorgonmilk—lately this guy has been leading the Petty Gods project. Check it out!

Here are several on the Oldhammer tip:

  • Eldritch Epistles—pure heroin-grade eye-candy for those of us who came of fantasy-gaming-age in the golden era of Citadel. It's the real thing. Steve Casey, the guy churning out awesome post after awesome post there, has privileged access to Bryan Ansell's personal collection of figures. No question one of the finest collection of fantasy miniatures under one roof the world over.
  • Erny's Place
  • Goblin Lee's Miniatures Blog—Goblin Lee is working on a vintage Citadel collection that really has to be seen to be believed. If you ever wondered why Slann and Pygmies are hard to find, you can stop. It's because this punk got there first and took them all. I have no idea how he's painted so many either, and really well, too. It's really a marvel.
  • Warhammer for Adults—This is where I found out about Goblin Lee as it happens.
  • Blue's Marauding Miniatures

And are a few more with various other bents:

  • Vintage Wargaming—In the past several years I've added 1060s-80s historical wargaming to my list of interest and have been reading Featherstone. Vintage Wargaming is nice place to start for any with similar inclinations.
  • Broadswords & Beasts—has a focus not unlike that here at BftD dungeons, painting vintage fantasy miniatures
  • The Kev Adams Challenge—all Kev Adams, all the time! And they've shared my own Kev Adams stuff there when I've tipped them off.

And to these bloggers, thanks for the reads and the pics and good luck with your projects!
