Sunday Shout Out: Flashlights of Fury

I'm going to start a new series on this blog called the Sunday Shout Out, where I feature different blogs that I read and talk about why I read them. As you may have noticed I don't have a blog roll, as I figure that other sites probably have the linking craziness down much more pat than I ever could. But I want to make sure that the blogs that I follow get the praise they deserve. So join me as we explore one of the newest additions to my Reader, Flashlights of Fury.



They're a pretty darn new blog on the web, only starting posts in February, but the quality of posting has been top notch right form the beginning. I forget exactly how I found out about these guys, but one thing that I DO know is that after reading one post I kept on reading until I had read them all.

I don't think I've ever done that with a blog before, with the possible exception being Musings of a Metal Mind (congrats on the 100th post, btw!). The style and quality of writing found at FoF is consistently good and they've taken some very good looks not just at current 40k news and modeling projects but also have a series of Warhammer history lessons where they explore the origins of some of our favorite models.

They're also primarily Imperial Guard focused, and Tallarn on top of that, so that might be another reason that I like them.

Here are some of my favorites from their short collection of posts so far:


So please, if you're looking for some quality writing from some new faces in the blogosphere, give Flashlights of Fury a look!

Wow, great concept with the Sunday Shout Out.

Im humbled that my little piece of the blog-o-sphere could be your inaugural post. Thank you!

Thanks,

However, all the credit belongs to Tallarn... The Sandman...

I am but a lowly piece of lint, a grain of sand, a leftover, rotten bannana...

You get the idea...

thank you for the shout out,

CK
