“The planet of Caliban exists much as it has for thousands of years – the knightly orders protect the common people, fighting back the beasts that lurk in the depths of the seemingly endless forests. Young Zahariel and Nemiel aspire to join the greatest of the orders, led by the example of mighty Lion El’Jonson and his vision of a peaceful and unified world.

I never thought I’d go this far

It's been really nice to relax and do some artwork this evening - shut out everything else and just create something for myself.I took this from sketch to completion tonight without interruption and it felt glorious. I am going to be using Skaejre as my avatar for Art Quest when I finally get cracking with... Continue Reading →

I gave an introduction to Joe Pitt in my review for Already Dead so for the sake of not repeating myself on the intricate details of the lead character in No Dominion, I’ll link you to that review.

No Dominion is the second installment in the Joe Pitt case files and moves the over-arching plot on nicely from it’s dramatic starting point, while still having a solid plot all on it’s own. No Dominion sees Joe Pitt moving out of his comfort zone and into the streets of Harlem and into Hood territory – working a dirty job for the Coalition to keep up his supplies of blood and some cash to pay off his overdue…

A quick refresh

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm changing my main character from Jenn to Skaejre. This means that I needed to put in a bit more work in designing Skaejre and making her visual signature a bit more comfortable to recreate - I've been drawing Jenn for so long that drawing her has become second...

Anthropomorphic Update

I realize that I've not been updating as much as I have previously - not for any particular reason other than the feeling that I've not had anything overly relevant to say. A lot of the focus of this blog has turned towards the Warhammer/Wargaming side of my interests - and I then get concerned... Continue Reading →

I was given an advanced reader copy of this book by Black Library via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

An honest review so I’ve got to start with confessing that this was my first ‘Did Not Finish.’ I got to around 46% and couldn’t put myself through it any more as I struggled tooth and nail to get that far. There was something about Knights of Macragge that I just couldn’t connect with – to the point felt sorry for someone when I saw them buying a copy in the local Game Workshop store.

Knight of Macragge is the story of Cato Sicarius and his Company of Ultramarines, set primarily during the time when they are…
