Allies of Cadia: Other Blogs to Check out
Today I would like to plug some fellow blogs and bloggers, some of these are newer that I like and support and others are ones that I read a lot and recommend you all read for the different perspectives that they offer. The reason I want to do this is simply that at one point, it was just me posting random thoughts to myself online. A few other blogs were kind enough to put me in their blog roll and to make a long story short, I now am talking to more people than just myself :). So I would like to return the favor and hopefully see these blogs grow as mine has.
First I must plug my buddies blog, as I am a good friend and he has a great perspective from the Space Marine point of view.
Wardens of the Eastern Fringes
This is a take on 40k from the space marine point of view, mainly the Ultramarines. My buddy loves his marines and lets be honest, Space Marines are awesome and nearly all of us have a place in our heart for a Chapter or Traitor Legion. He also has a great point of view from the math perspective and really analyzes the statistical aspect of 40k. We both disagree on how important it is, but its hard to argue with numbers :).
Next is a regular to the blog, Mr Howell, his is a newer blog as well and is another growing one that I like to read and see his point of view
The Imperial Patrol
Next is Mr. Foote's. He is friends with the Imperial Patrol and has a good view from a non 40k wargamer perspective
The Dice Odyssey
The next is one I really enjoy reading as he is a deamon player and really is great to see the hobby from another armies point of view.
This is a blog about daemons and 40k. Think of it as a blog like mine, that has its faction it focuses on but also talk about the hobby in general. He has great insights into Chaos and how those armies works. Also has some great hobby work and conversions. His Daemon weapon batteries and customized firestorm redoubt are awesome. Its great seeing other hobbyists point of view and what motivates them.
The last one is an email request to be added to the roll.
Victory Needs No Explanation, Defeat Allows None
This is a hobby focused blog, has some really cool unboxings and covers a lot of different kits and has some really cool kit bashing articles. Also covers 30k and talks a bit about the heresy era. This is another growing blog and has quite a few cool things to check out if you are interested for hobby ideas and 30k
That is all I really have for today. There are other blogs that I read, check out the blog roll, but most of you are probably familiar as they are the "popular blogs". Its always good to read other peoples perspectives and I enjoy seeing everyone's different thoughts.
Some IG rumors have been dropped, but really nothing more than the supposed release schedule. The big transport will be interesting to see if its true. A leviathan would be awesome, but I seriously doubt that. Not going to really delve into it as you can see the rumors at the usual sites, and I really don't have anything to add to it currently
