Quick Post: The Way Back Machine

I wanted to drop a quick link here, amid the furor of the GW website change. For those of you who've never heard of it, there exists a thing on the interweb called "The Way Back Machine." It's basically a webcrawling archve that displays what certain pages looked like at certain points in time. It's not always complete (often missing images and media), but it's pretty damned useful.

For those of you who pine for the days of GW featuring usable, free content on their website, check out this link:


It's the final accessible crawl of the Black Gobbo e-zine archive. It lists issues 1 through 113 in various levels of completion. Some articles are missing all their images, other have a few, and others are 100% intact.

For those of you who don't know, Black Gobbo was the precursor to GW blogs, and it contained both product information like previews and reviews, as well as a plethora of how-to and tutorial style articles. Anything from how to build cheap terrain, to conversions using the most recent (at the time) model releases done by the GW staff.
