Today I managed to talk with David Guymer, the author of the final two books in the Gotrek and Felix series amongst several other Warhammer Fantasy novels. We discuss about what it's like writing for the Black Library, how the doom of Gotrek came to be, the End Times in general, and much, much more.

As wargamers we talk about progressing the storyline of our game systems pretty frequently. Do Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 really have core storylines though, or is this something that we are trying to enforce on it. Something akin to a square peg in a round hole?

This has to have been one of my most enjoyable commissions to do in awhile. The Black Templars have always fascinated me and I really like their color scheme. I had already painted a mostly black and white marine army though with my Sons of Dorn, so I had never really wanted to take the dive again. Now with this commission I got to scratch that itch and give the Templars a try.

It's always interesting to paint a new model for an old unit. I had painted my original three chariots several years ago, but lately have been using four in my games so I decided it was time to start painting more.

Since I just posted a review of Betrayer on Monday and recently picked up the latest book in the series, Legacies of Betrayal, I have been thinking about the Heresy series lately. I immediately thought about my favorite books from the Horus Heresy and came up with my Top Five. Take a look and see if you agree.

It's not often that I have a reason to do such an elaborate conversion outside of a competition. This Black Templar Marshall (or captain) is a commission I picked up recently and it really let me flex my sculpting muscles.

Model photography is something that takes some trial and error. There are plenty of guides out there, and they are all helpful, but unless you are a professional studio photographer you will probably have a bit of a learning curve. It's okay though, lets take a look at a bit of what I have learned.
