So it's been a month since I last posted on here. That post was a return-from-holiday-pictures post, the one before that was a White Dwarf look back piece and before then we had the Forge World Open Day coverage. I've not actually done a post involving models I've worked on since the 2nd of July.
Which is a bit shite.
This is due to two things, 1. lack of time and 2. lack of motivation. It's just one of those periods that when I do have free time I just can't be arsed.
I have been catching up on some reading, currently working my way through Fiefdom, the first non Black Library book by them I've read.
After that I think I'll be picking up one of these two. Two of the best authors in their field (in my opinion at least).
Now last weekend I got my hands on the new White Dwarf.
With various posts I have made on here you probably know it has been some time since I bought a White Dwarf and my thoughts of them is more than just a little negative. But I thought it was only fair to pick up the first in what has been billed as a new start.
While I've not read it all yet I have to say my first impressions are positive.
There is a lot packed in there and a lot of what used to annoy me seems to have been toned down.
Even before I do fully read it I can see me picking up the next couple of issues to see if this new start continues or if they've put all their eggs into the basket that is the first issue.
I have to say it is nice to see artwork on the cover again.
Something else I have picked up is the Index Astartes Apocrypha book. I have mentioned being disappointed in missing out on this when it first came out as they had stupidly limited it to a very small number. It's now back in softback so I got in there quick just in case.
It is interesting to see not only how the background has developed but also just how different the artwork has changed over the years.
It only arrived yesterday, I'll put it aside till I finish Fiefdom and White Dwarf.
I did say at the beginning of this I'd not had much free time recently. One reason for this was going to a wedding last weekend in York.
While there I grabbed a few pictures of some ruins. I like ruins.
