Hey guys, Shadowclaimer here. Just wanted to keep people in the know of the status of the blog and direction of things.
As of late there’s been a trim down of the number of posts I’ve been making, one of the primary reasons is that I haven’t had an exorbitant amount of time to paint (as much as I want to) and what time I’ve had has been consumed by my other hobbies. I’ve also kinda just stepped away from AOS in general as well, just kinda expensive with terrible resell value which is a major downer in a hobby for me. I still love the universe, still love the models, still love painting them when I can but the fact that painting things (even well) seems to devalue them is a bummer that makes me not want to keep pouring money into it.
I’ve been trying my best to catch some of the news for upcoming AOS/40k things as well as possible (including being the first on the blogosphere to bring you the Dracoth news the other day.)
Going forward, this blog is mostly going to be pretty quiet. I don’t foresee myself painting a ton of stuff anytime soon, I’ll still be throwing up news posts whenever possible and still welcome comments and discussion on them, but TBH between Naftka, Bolter, and Lady Atia’s page (my personal go to) you guys have a plethora of news sites available that are reposting the exact same information.
If you guys want to check out any of my other ventures, you can primarily find me on either of my Twitter accounts.
Shadowclaimer, my general Twitter that also gets notifications from this blog.
Jek’s Builds, my Lego related Twitter that gets notifications from my other blog.
My primary focus as of late is my Youtube channel Jek’s Builds, which I’m trying to get off the ground. I’ve been uploading piece by piece build videos of various Lego sets I’ve been buying. Its a hobby I’ve enjoyed for the creative freedom, decently lower barrier of entry, and huge resell value. The blog for the page can be found over on WordPress as well.
Overall its been a great experience working with you guys and talking with some of you, hopefully I can continue to provide you with some news here and there. Just don’t wanna keep people hanging on for more painting tutorials, updates, etc. when I don’t see any coming in the near future.
Hope to see you guys around!
