I'm not dead, I've just been busy - and to prove it, issue 16 of the Ancible has been published (and a week early too).
Back to a painting article for me this time, having a go at a Vampire boxed set for Empire of the Dead - and I managed to throw in a few thoughts about the new GW paint range. I played EotD at our weekly gaming session this week, and it's a lot of fun - my Vampires and retainers (and bat swarms) went up against Mr B's London Bobbies (a Gentleman's Club faction in new clothes) in a sewer network. The rules are simple to learn and fast flowing - but best to read Jez's review of the rule-set in the magazine (I'm just the paint jockey).
In other news, I haven't done much painting beyond the stuff for the article, but I have stupidly added Mr B's coppers to the list of projects (I'm not smart), so there will be pictures of the boys in blue in the future. The in-laws are over, and they brought me some lovely Hirst Art molds, so I'll be working on some buildings for terrain soon too.
Plus there's a load of other stuff going on that I can barely keep track of...
As always, comments and criticism welcome!
