With the recent rise in popularity of quality blogging amongst my friends, acquaintances and others in the hobby, the front page sidebar was in danger of becoming cumbersome. I’ve therefore moved some of the links here so that the ones that remain ‘up front’ (and usefully also in the sidebar on this page) are generally more in line with my own focused selection of interests that make up Windcutter.
There’s no significance or pecking order in this, in fact in some cases it’s been quite a fine judgment, but good modelling is good modelling regardless of period, location or scale and gauge, and you’ll find plenty to inspire and enthuse on these sites.
