March 2nd is Old Stuff Day!

Warhammer 39,999 is attempting to start a Blogging Movement by declaring March 2nd Old Stuff Day. In the forum world, this is called thread necromancy where old threads rise from the grave. I think this is a very cool thing to do, so I jumped on the band wagon (with just an hour to spare!). For the image, I wanted to post a picture of my parents as they're pretty old, but I would be the only one that would get it.

Bad humor aside, I just took a quick look at some of the stats on my posts and I wasn't surprised that the Stormraven Conversions Part 1 and Part 2 were up at the top. I was surprised by the amount of page views though. Part 2 has more views than all of the other posts on my blog combined! I've been planning a Part 3 for some time and now that I see the stats and know how popular those posts are, I'll probably finish it off sooner rather than later. If you have a cool Stormraven conversion that you want me to use as part of that post, contact me.

Converting a Twin-Linked Assault Cannon Turret
This post was a landmark for me as it was the first tutorial I ever did for my blog. I got a really good response from the community and it made me realize how much I liked blogging. This post, coupled with my acceptance to From the Warp, really solidified my latest foray into 40K and helped to reignite my passion for the hobby. I can't express how pivotal I think From the Warp is for the entire 40K community and while I know Ron Saikowski has a thankless job and is going through a rough patch, I'm happy to hear he is exploring easier ways to update the site. 

Converting a Twin-Linked Heavy Flamer Turret
This conversion post I did in 2 parts. Maybe that's why it didn't get the attention I thought it would. I think of all the Razorback turret conversions I've done, this is my best. I haven't seen many heavy flamer turrets add hoses like I did and I think that makes all of the difference. If there is a post on here that I think people should see, it's this one. 

I'm glad that Warhammer 39,999 started Old Stuff Day and I hope to see more things like this in the future that get the 40K blogging community together.

Till next time,

  1. Hey, thanks for your part in making the day successful. :)

  2. Thanks for coming up with it. It's a great idea and I wish the 40K blogging community would do more things like this.
