Lord of Change

My brother Dennis has been collecting armies for Tzeentch for as long as we’ve been playing Warhammer, both for 40k and Fantasy (and now Age of Sigmar). The new Lord of Change model was enough to make ME want to collect a Tzeentch army, but I have waaa…

Śmierć spada z góry | Death comes from above

Posted on February 21st, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Stado raptorów Władców Nocy Mormega znowu jest silniejsze. Kolejny metalowy staruszek po pomalowaniu wzmocnił grupę wojowników dawnego VIII Legionu. Malowanie zostało już opisane w jednym z wcześniejszych wpisów przedstawiających członków stada, zachęcam do zerknięcia.
Zawsze miałem wrażenie, że podstawki 25mm, na których do jeszcze całkiem niedawna stawiano marines, są wystarczające – z wyjątkiem właśnie Assault Marines i Raptorów. Osobiście użyłbym już nowszej, większej podstawki, rozumiem jednak i niechęć do zmiany wcześniejszych podstawek i chęć utrzymania jednolitej wielkości. Ciekawy tylko jestem, jak taki raptor utrzyma się na makiecie terenu choćby odrobinę nierównej, kiedy ma tak wysoko położony środek ciężkości.
Pack of Night Lords’ Raptors belonging to my brother Mormeg has grown yet again. Further metal old miniature strengthtened warband of former warriors of VIII Legion. Painting was described in detail in one of the earlier notes showing raptors, you can read about it here.

I always thought that 25mm round base used for years for Space Marines was large enough, with the exception of Assault Marines and Raptors. Personally, nowadays I would use larger, modern 32mm bases, as models look better on them and are more stable. Still, rebasing already painted models is major PITA… But handling this raptor made me wonder how unstable it will be on some gaming table features, having centre of the mass placed so high.

Unboxing – Triumvirate of the Imperium – Part Three

Posted on February 3rd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

So we looked at Saint Celestine ‘The Living Saint’ in Part Two…now lets have a look at Belisarius Cawl ‘Archmagos Dominus’…
“A truly inspiring presence, the Triumvirate of the Imperium bolster the might of their allies even as they effortlessly obliterate the enemies of the Imperium that stand in their way. Waves of telepathic power from Inquisitor Greyfax steady the nerves and enhance the aim of the warriors around her, even as Archmagos Cawl’s augmentative data-shunts aid the war machines of the Imperium while stymieing those of the foe. At the head of the triumvirate fight Saint Celestine and her Germinae Superia, calling down the fury of the Emperor through ringing war hymns.”

Belisarius Cawl
‘Archmagos Dominus’
A massive Adeptus Mechanicus Archmagos, he is armed with a master-crafted power axe, arc scourge and refractor field, as well as featuring a mechadendrite hive and scryerskull.
Belisarius Cawl – Sprue
Here’s pictures of both sides of the sprues for Belisarius Cawl.

Belisarius Cawl – Assembled
There’s so much detail on this model that it needed a lot of close-up pictures to cover it all…

Instructions and Stats
As some-one who assembles models from a lot of different companies ranges I have to say that instructions with clear diagrams, numbers that match with parts on the sprue and actual views of the rear of the models were particularly enjoyable…

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Saint Celestine
‘The Living Saint’
Wearing the Armour of St. Katherine, she is armed with the Ardent Blade and a bolt pistol. She is accompanied by two loyal Geminae Superia, Sisters Genevieve and Eleanor armed with bolt pistols and power swords and ready to lay down their lives to protect the blessed saint.

Unboxing – Triumvirate of the Imperium – Part One

Posted on January 31st, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I recently succumbed to that hobby dilemma of buying something you’ll probably never use because it’s really amazing looking and then ending up wanting to use it because it’s so amazing looking…the culprit in this case was the ‘Triumvirate of the Imperium’ box set…
“A truly inspiring presence, the Triumvirate of the Imperium bolster the might of their allies even as they effortlessly obliterate the enemies of the Imperium that stand in their way. Waves of telepathic power from Inquisitor Greyfax steady the nerves and enhance the aim of the warriors around her, even as Archmagos Cawl’s augmentative data-shunts aid the war machines of the Imperium while stymieing those of the foe. At the head of the triumvirate fight Saint Celestine and her Germinae Superia, calling down the fury of the Emperor through ringing war hymns.”
I’m going to cover each of the three characters contained within in their own individual features but don’t worry…I’m probably only going to do pictures of the box in this first one…
The box is actually nicely presented with a nicely decorated internal section, an art print and a quite elaborate set of instructions that also includes character stats for the box contents…
Inquisitor Greyfax
‘Eye of the Emperor’
Clad in ornate power armour, she is a figure wreathed in shadow and fear, armed with master-crafted power sword and condemnor boltgun. She carries psyk-out grenades and wears the Psyocculum – the Eye of the Emperor.
Inquisitor Greyfax – Sprue
Here’s pictures of both sides of the sprue for Inquisitor Greyfax
Inquisitor Greyfax – Assembled
The model is an incredibly detailed and characterful one and wouldn’t actually look out of place in a number of none Games Workshop steampunk and dieselpunk skirmish games…

Gav drinking a cup of tea
 

Hello!

This month has mostly been spent on editing and preparation, rather than actual writing. I’ve made a start on my next novel – a 40K book – but I’m just getting into it (by the time you have read this I’ll have finished the first full week).
It takes a little while to build up momentum on any project, and a novel in particular. You may have recently heard the term ‘flow state’ used by creatives, sports people and the like. This is a bit more of a scientific term for being ‘in the zone’ and describes the brain-state we enter when we are fully engaged with a single task or thought process. Everything else drops away, even making us only subconsciously aware of our surroundings.
A few years ago I visited a hypnotherapist to help me give up smoking. She asked if I had even been hypnotised before and I said no; when she asked me what I did for a living she told me that I probably had in fact been self-hypnotised many times – pretty much every time I got into the ‘zone’ when writing.
Though this is based only on my personal experience of obfuscation and procrastination habits, I think there is also a kind of ‘strategic flow state’ that works over a longer term. At the start of a project I don’t quite have an angle on the characters or perhaps any particular dialogue tweaks or mannerism. I need to work on the characterisation, the environments, even the narrative voice for that writing.
 
Glowing brain (image credit to artM on www.freeimages.com)
All of which means it takes a little bit longer to get into the regular flow state on any given day because I’m having to make far more conscious decisions at the outset.
And that’s where I am at the moment, working hard to get the foundations laid. I have the story, the themes are developing, but everything isn’t coming together just yet and so the actual act of typing out words is more laborious and consequently less productive.
Another way of looking at it – when one gets to a certain age some things are a little more effort, a little stiffer. Getting back into writing is a vague struggle, like waking up after not quite enough sleep. Everything is technically working, but its definitely not the purring engine you need it to be…
On another level I’m also working out where I can have the most fun – scenes that push the characters or the reader (preferably both) and also stretching my imagination in terms of the setting. Having written a lot of Warhammer and 40K over the years (over 3 million words for BL alone!) I think it’s important that while common imagery and themes develop, I try to push myself into new places too. To be creative with characters, places and story, not just plot.
In my non-work time I have been making some headway on the Big Stompy Robot game (more details below). It’s in a similar place, in some ways – the basic blocks are in place, now it all needs to be fleshed out. I’m forcing myself to think of it just as a fun hobby project, no commercial considerations yet… But twenty-three years of games dev experience moulds the thinking somewhat and sometimes I can’t help myself.
Time to paint some more mechs, and make pew-pew noises, I think.
 
 
Cover of Asurmen: Hand of Asuryan by Gav Thorpe

Asurmen: Hand of Asuryan

Next month sees the release of Asurmen: The Darker Road, a companion audio drama that I wrote for Asurmen: Hand of Asuryan.
To get you in the mood here’s a look back at some of the extra-curricular reading available for Asurmen: Hand of Asuryan:
My Author’s Notes tell the story of how the Phoenix Lords series came about, and the difficulties I had in writing the first installment!
The second draft came back with another raft-load of comments, and so did the third… It took five drafts in the end, that’s about two more than I would expect, before we finally got the story into a shape that both I and the editors were happy with. The project dragged on, pressure was mounting, the mortgage still needed paying and so it was more with relief than anything else that I received the final sign off.”
Asurmen: The Darker Road is already available to pre-order over at Black Library.
 

Big Stompy Robot News

There are now a couple of blogs on my website you might want to look at.  The first is an introduction to the game, and update on the three stands of development (the rules, miniatures, and terrain).  The second blog looks at the first playtest, and what the first proper run-through is actually for.
I’ve also added a Big Stompy Robot Page to my website, where I’ll try and collect together information about the game. I won’t go into too much detail here, as I’m planning on sending out the first game-specific newsletter this weekend.
“For the moment my only goal is to run a fun game at ROBIN, to maintain my sanity. However, should it go well I’ll continue developing the game, maybe taking it to some more events including Daffcon, and we’ll see where we go from there…”

Kickstarter

Sharkpunk 2

As I mentioned back in November, my short story Peregrinus Cibus Cedimus has been accepted into the Sharkpunk 2 anthology, alongside stories from fellow Black Library writers Guy Haley, David Guymer and Josh Reynolds, amongst others.
The Kickstarter campaign goes live at 12noon tomorrow, so please take a look and whether you decide to support the project or not, I would really appreciate it if you could share any of my social media posts about it with your friends – getting the word out is key to Kickstarter success.
Sharkpunk 2 Coming Soon to Kickstarter (28th January 12noon)
 

Newsletter Q&A

Andrew asked: I smiled when I first saw the novel Corax. A book about the Raven Guard with the word “Nevermore” on the front cover. I’m curious, is that a nod to Edgar Allan Poe? Or am I making a connection that isn’t there?
It’s a definite reference, which dates back to the Raven Guard Index Astartes article in White Dwarf magazine about fifteen years ago, when the ‘Nevermore’ line was introduced. That actual incident doesn’t occur until about a year after the event portrayed in the Corax epilogue.
If you want to ask a question, just reply to the newsletter and I’ll get back to you as soon as my schedule allows.  I’ll pick a question to go in the next newsletter, and combine them all into a blog post for the website.  Click the button below for the full Q&A round-up for January.
 

! Submission Alert !

One of the ways that you can get your writing noticed above others, is if you have been previously published.  Black Library particularly are usually willing to look at submissions from previously published authors, outside of their advertised submission windows.
If you want to ‘start small’ and build your confidence as a writer before you pen your magnum-opus, this would be a great place to start.
Flash Fiction Online Logo
Flash Fiction Online is a monthly ezine that publishes “short stories for the modern reader” accepting stories between 500-1,000 words.  They pay a very reasonable $60 per story, and have a refreshing approach to content:
“We’re not that concerned about genre. Many of us have a fondness for science fiction and fantasy, but we also like literary fiction; and in any case, great flash stories aren’t always easily classified. If you wrote it, and you love it, then submit it.”
If you need help with your submission, there’s a specific tag for writing short fiction on the writing advice section on my website.  I’ve also added “How to write Flash Fiction” to my growing list of blog posts to write.
 

Blog Post Round-Up

As is customary when January 1st rolls around I took a look back to what I achieved in 2016, and then outlined mywriting, gaming and hobby plans for 2017. It’s like an annual review for a self employed writer!
You can also listen to this Starburst Brave New Words podcast, recorded at last year’s Sledge-Lit, and find out more about the Legends of the Age of Sigmar anthology, published earlier this month.

Upcoming Events

  • November 2017 (date TBC), Black Library Weekender
Do come and say ‘hello’ if you are attending these events (and feel free to bring any books you’d like me to sign).

One of the most common questions I get asked is “What are you working on?”, so here’s my (sorry, sometimes cryptic) list of works in progress, plus future releases.

Hard Drive Hot List

 

Bi-Monthly Competition Winner

All subscribers to my mailing list are entered into the bi-monthly draw to win a personalised, signed copy of one of my books.  This month’s winner is Sean Aitken from Australia, who will receive a signed copy of my audio drama Asurmen: The Darker Road. The next winner will be picked in March, and will receive their choice from my back-catalogue box – if I’ve got it, you can have it (includes some limited editions, and older titles that are no longer in print).
