the saga of inquisitor emerson

This (and apologies for the poor paint job / image) is Inquisitor Emerson. I play Warhammer 40K. I’m sure I’ve banged on about this in the past. Its not something I hide. Recently I’ve been bogged down in too many miniature painting projects for too many army ideas and, as is often the case with […]

doctor who : the keys of marinus

After Unearthly Child, after The Daleks, after The Edge of Destruction, after Marco Polo… The Keys Of Marinus. This is the first story (not counting Marco Polo, which very little of has survived) where we properly see the Tardis crew working together. Everyone shines. And despite the odd dialogue fluff it’s brilliant. The sets are […]

movie magic : a possible new comic book movie that isn’t DC or Marvel?

I know. I don’t believe it either. Duncan Jones, he of Warcraft, Source Code and, more importantly, Moon, has said he’s going to do a comic book movies next. There are articles across the interwebs certain it’s not anything to do with the big two (DC or Marvel). A number of them mention publishers like […]

mental health : words of kindness

As I claw my way out DEFCON 1 (not quite to DEFCON 2, but I’m definitely not as self-destructive, or just plain destructive, today) I was thinking about small moments of kindness and, while I don’t depend on them, how appreciative I am when they happen. And, when I remember to do so, I like […]

mental health : the current state of mind

This is the sound my mind is currently making, this or something very close. It’s such a strange thing. The last few days have been so bad, so dark, that it’s really difficult to think clearly about anything at all. Am I at risk? I don’t know. I don’t think so. Certainly I don’t have […]

project skaven : warp lightning cannon #1

I’ve had these little plastic ratmen for years. Unpainted. Their sad little ratty faces looking at the insides of their box. (This is a Warhammer thing.) After years of not painting them, finally, FINALLY, Project Skaven has begun. I really have no idea how many little plastic humanoid ratmen I have. Over a hundred? Maybe. […]

update : mental health

I had a whole screed written about this but my computer crashed and I lost the file I tend to put blog ideas in. Ah, well. Long story short… last summer suicide attempt 4 weeks in Gartnavel Royal Hospital for change of meds and being kept safe out regular meetings with GP work let me […]

update : writing

Let’s be honest here. My interest in writing anything at all died on its arse. Sure I’d have moments where I missed the thrill of putting pen to paper but generally? Nah. Forget it. So, has anything changed in that regard? Maybe. Kind of. There was a recent submissions window for the Black Library, which […]

update : website

I’ve changed things. You may notice that the site is ugly as sin at the moment. That’s okay. I have things on my mind. I’ve not rage quit or had another breakdown or anything bad like that. It’s just that, well, I’ve been thinking things over since the beginning of the year and, while I’m […]
