It's been a long time since the last PROTOSTARS! so here's another great gaming blog with far too few followers for the quality, The Dark Workshop, home of Cursed13.

What are the highlights? 

> a superb guide to basic hobby tools for modelling and painting

> two excellent hobby tutorials, the first on using an airbrush and compressor, the second on building a lightbox, as well as good advice for press moulding decorative elements

> subtle modelling, especially the posing and converting for these Blood Angels space marines and this space marine captain, not forgetting those simple Eldar wraithbone bases

> solid painting, not least on this Dark Angels chaplain, these Space Hulk terminators and this crashed lander

> more terrain: a defensive wall with an electrically-operated gate and these etched stone columns for a desert-themed table

> the detailed creation of a balanced character for 40K, Captain Alessio Cortez, and a space marine chapter, the Void Ravens

As can be seen, illumination awaits in The Dark Workshop.

The earlier PROTOSTARS! - six more great blogs:

Good work as always and following some more blogs.

@ Lantz - It pains me when good work goes unseen, and there are so many excellent blogs out there not yet on the radar. As I find them I add them to the blogrolls on the left so I recommend having a browse through if you get the time.

@ The Angry Lurker - Thanks to you for the support. I'm sure Cursed13 will be happy too, especially given you're following him twice now - the blog clearly gets us both excited..!

Definetly a great blog! And a very timely addition as I'm currently thinking about buying an airbrush and also need to construct a lightbox for the Lead Painters League. :)

Thanks so much Porky, this is the second time you've given me a shout out. I just wish there was something I could do for you.
As for everyone else who is finding my little corner of cyberspace, welcome and thank you for the positive comments.

@ Martin - Even better! Who says 13's an unlucky number?

@ Cursed13 - No trouble at all. Just keep doing what you do!
