Ancible Issue 16

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!


  1. I wouldn't mind painting up a faction, the rules sound cool.....

    1. Do it mate, you won't regret it (you'll need an opponent mind :P). Only 7-8 minis for a faction too, so nothing too onerous to get started (the miniatures are nice to paint as well). We've been playing a few games recently, and although there are a couple of irritations, the game is fast and enjoyable, and particularly good for "narrative" gaming
