As the first step in re-vitalising things around here (which might even culminate in a complete theme re-build if I get the time) I've gone through my Blogroll and deleted a few links to blogs that were no longer relevant. Quite a few of the places I was linking had moved on from Malifaux long ago, and were either not posting at all, or posting stuff that was nothing to do with Malifaux. Some of them had even inexplicably started blogging about 40k! They've all gone.
In their place, I've scoured the internet for some of the new blogs on the scene. It certainly seems that Malifaux blogs are now "in", and all of a sudden everyone is getting involved, which can only be a good thing!
Here's a small selection of the newly added:
Justin Drawing Dead - Justin Gibbs
Not only does Justin offer obligatory reading in the form of regular glimpses behind the curtain of the M2E design process, his "off-topic" posts also make for interesting reading; his recent Hunger Games posts being good examples.
The Philosophy of Uncertainty - Joel Henry
Joel offers up a mix of deep insight on Malifaux and general gaming strategy (and being among the top competitive players, he knows his stuff), and creative hobby projects. His Goldilocks themed Lilith crew is just right, and has to be seen to be appreciated.
Black Swamp Bayou - rgarbonzo
A new blog celebrating the new faction on the block, the Black Swamp blog started off recently with a post asking the question on everyone's lips - "What *is* a Gremlin anyway?". Recent posts have focused on getting the most out of some of the new Gremlin masters.
Workbench Warriors - Richardb
In his brand spanking new blog, Richard is going to be charting his hobby progress as he gets started in Malifaux. His first post showing his step by step Bayou bases is nice inspiration for anyone looking to move away from resin bases and inserts.
Not generally a very wordy blog, but contains plenty of picture gallery posts showcasing some of the new Malifaux plastic range painted to an incredibly high standard. Something for us all to aspire to!
With such a healthy blog scene at the moment, I'll be keeping an eye on all the above blogs, along with the multitude of others in the list you can see on the right, and I'll be highlighting some of my other favourites in future posts.
