    Warhammer-themed artwork on Etsy

    I've put a bunch of my illustrations for various WFB-related projects up for sale on Etsy [if yu're not familiar with Etsy, it's a bit like Ebay but just for art, craft & old stuff. You can use Paypal to pay for things on Etsy & all the sales are fixed-price, not auctions]. Most of these were...

    Ingrid Pitt, legendary Vampire Mistress & star of Hammer's Countess Dracula & the wonderful Carmilla von Karnstein in the Vampire Lovers is no longer with us. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-11823418 A sad time for tragedy.

    Homage to Nerf

    It seems to me that with all this talk of Nerfing, some people may have forgotten the derivation of the term. Nerf is a range of toys made from a polyurethane foam, which is harmless, and incapable of destruction, much less world domination. Nerf toys include air-pressure powered dart-shooters...

    Ultramarines Trailor 2...

    Second trailer for the Ultramarines movie is up, & my 12-year old backside keeps jumping up & down & making my 26-year old pointy backside wear out this chair much quicker. Now we know who the enemy are, & that there isn't a typo error in the thread title ;) FOR MACRAGGE!!

    Zombie Dragon Project

    My, it's ben a while since I had a proper go at converting anything. Now, naturally, I'm doing it the hard way. I have in my possession one Citadel Zombie Dragon, released circa 1994, purchased by myself sort of october-ish last year, languishing in a drawer since. Now though, I am free of...

    Unsightly lefties

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/10222719.stm Ok, Boris Johnson wants to get rid of the people who are making parliament look untidy, peaceful demonstrators who want a few wrong things putting right, like the right to be where they have a right to be. The irony of protesting a law...

    The Passing of a Dark Legend

    A hero of mine, and of many others, has left us. I'm sure I won't be the only one here saddened by the death of Peter Steele, a giant in every respect. http://www.typeonegative.net/index.php It was announced sometime this morning but I put off posting it until the final word from TON was...

    An odd thing I saw...

    Yesterday on my way home from college I saw a bat. Not terribly unusual in itself, but.... it was daytime, in the middle of a city. A bat flapping about above a river surrounded by high buildings at 5 in the afternoon. Most surprising. No great significance here, just thought I'd share.

    The Lost Primarchs

    I would like to draw your attention to these, slightly less grimdark than usual, portrayals of the Lost Primarchs by the very talented Slaine69. The Lost Primarch The Unknown Primarch Ophidicus approves.

    Greenies next for WFB!

    Well this was unexpected, there's all this talk of 8th Ed & a bit campaign & this just pops out of nowhere: "More" is interesting, it has been a while (4 years) since the last O&G army book so it's likely there's a new one in the works but it isn't the same "All new super shiny WOW!"...

    The "I Hate" Thread

    Inspired by my current software-related chagrin, I start this thread for all the negativity we need to spill out. Post in here if something's really getting on your wick and rubbing you up the wrong way (DoN, shush!), share the swear, get it all out in the foetid air. No hatred of Space...

    From early days of infancy, through trembling years of youth, long murky middle-age and final hours long in the tooth, he is the hundred names of terror - creature you love the least. Picture his name before you and exorcise the beast. He roved up and down through history - spectre with...
