A pause from building buildings, some blog links, and a request for hobbyists.

Lately I've been working on more design ideas for the oriental village build, but something occurred to me yesterday... a project I want to do that I have neglected for a few months. But before I get into that I've found a few blogs that I find have good content, tips, tutorials, wip, or other things that make them well worth reading and following.

Legion 9 Studios. Recent posts on a Wolf Lord caught my eye. Love how it came out, the lightning claws not being in a power field and showing the blood of enemies. A very cool take on the fig. (Plus I just won a Blood Angels Omnibus from Danz0 who runs the blog).

Sproket's Small World. The WIP on a Dark Eldar scourge diorama, have to say it is inspiring to see the work going into it. The use of bits from so many places, some of which I wouldn't have thought of.

Daughters of the Emperor. Every project I see her post is an inspiration. Her skills with a brush, and her imagination just awe me. Her current project has me thinking of ways to do my AdeptiCon projects in new ways.

DuEnDe MiNiATurEs. For a newer blog, DuEnDe is very passionate in his work. While it might not be Golden Daemon level, it is very good overall. His use of color theming make the figs he's posted up bind together very well.

Now, onto the project I've been slacking on.

I am planning on a charity project for later this year, at this point I'm contacting people to see if they may wish to help, as well as soliciting help from those who read my blog. This project will be a Deathwatch army, that when finished will be auctioned off to gain money for St. Jude's Children's Charities. I don't plan to begin the auction until at least August, so plenty of time. But I would like to get interest going now, and start gathering pledges of support and help now so there is time to get this done right.

Anyone that is willing to help, donate supplies/models, or support this, please reply to this post, or e-mail me with the e-mail in my profile (top right of the blog). I know it is early in the year, but this is a project that I don't want rushed. If you know anyone that could help, give support, or donate supplies please pass on the word to me so I can contact them.

Thank you!
