Better late than never
Tuesday 2nd October 2012
Yeah, I'm a couple of days late with this strip, but at least it's up now!
Next weekend I'm off to Wales to help crew another 40K LARP. I will attempt to get a strip up on Friday instead, but no promises!
What the hell is a helldrake?

Yeah, Orks! I love drawing these guys.
As requested, the orks are now much chunkier and I'm pretty pleased with them. I thought I may as well do some grots as well, because they're always fun!
So a lot of new Chaos models have been released recently, including the Helldrake and Maulerfiend. They are some pretty damn-fine looking minatures.
I've pretty much given up on tabletop Warhammer nowadays; I don't really have the time to sit and paint models and I feel a bit disenchanted with the constant stream of new units GW are turning out. Don't get me wrong; I think the new models are gorgeous and it's only fair GW keep creating new and interesting stuff for the 40k product line, but I just can't sum up the enthusiasm for the new stuff that I use to be able to.
Maybe I'm just becoming a gumpy old grognard.
For me 40k will continue but mostly in the form of Dark Heresy, Deathwatch and the RPGs, plus the occasional computer game.
Forces of Chaos needed!

Ok, so no strip this week. The reason for this is I've recently been made redundant and have spent the last few days redoing my portfolio, appling for jobs and going to interviews.
I'll hopefully have a strip up this weekend.
In the meantime, time for a shameless plug!
I will be helping to co-ref another 40K LARP game on the 5th of October in Clandlestone, South Wales and we're currently looking for as many crew as possible!
Any UK-based (or maybe not, if you're willing to travel) readers who would like to come and help then please contact me or sign up to the Death Unto Darkness forums for more details. You don't have to have LARPed before, although it's obviously a bonus if you have.
The official promotional spiel is bellow:
Death Unto Darkness 13: Even Giants Fall
On a war-torn Imperial World an Imperial Reaver Class titan has fallen into the clutches of Chaos. A strike team of crack Imperial troops and Adeptus Mechanicus specialists has been assembled to recapture the war machine and strike back at the forces of the arch-enemy of Mankind.
Running from the 5th to the 7th of October, Death Unto Darkness 13: Even Giants Fall is a 40K LARP set in the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium.
While all player spaces are currently filled, we are currently looking for as many crew as possible to represent the vile forces of Chaos!
For only £5 you will get the chance to play all manner of twisted heretics, vile traitors and other assorted NPCs. The fee also includes Friday evening, Saturday lunch and evening meals and all the crew snacks you can stuff in your face.
