What’s New at the Alpha 6/1/09
This week sees some organizational changes here at the Alpha. When I first set up the site I had thought I would want a place to share recipes and review cookbooks, since I’m a fairly serious foodie. Since it’s now almost five months later and I haven’t done any of that, I’ve decided to kill the section and give the space to my Master Zombie Database project. All the zombie reviews have been moved there and all the MZD comparison photos will now have an easy-to-find home. This will leave the Miniature Review section for non-zombie minis.
The Suck It section has also been revamped. Again, at the beginning of this project I envisioned needing a forum for all manner of venomous rants, but again things have not turned out that way. Thus Suck It has become Musings. The Musings section will still be the home of editorials (vitriolic or otherwise), but also will contain essays and maybe a little short fiction if I ever get any more finished.
Enough goldbricking. Here’s a look at this week’s features.
We have another review of some resin terrain from Armorcast. This week features a pack of nicely-detailed crates useful for a variety of modern and sci-fi settings. [note: this will be up a bit later on Tuesday...]
Our continuing reprint series features an article by Hyun extolling the virtues of the Indispensable Sakura Micron Pen.
The new Musings section is inaugurated with an essay by your humble editor on the elements of good criticism.
Coming up on Friday we have a review of another pack of minis from Copplestone Castings. This time a group of zombie soldiers shambles forth to continue their fight from beyond the grave.
We’ll also have a review of an interesting tombstone metal scenic piece sculpted by the great Bob Olley and currently produced by Mannequin Miniatures.
As always, thanks for reading!
