Critique time... [Jun. 3rd, 2004|04:40 am]
Let The Galaxy BURN!
The following is the first few paragraphs from a Warhammer fantasy story that I was working on, but don't know how I feel about... It's not bad, I suppose, but I don't know if it's really worth continuing...

You be the judge and tell me what you think from this tiny writing sample, totally isolated from the actual plot of the story itself.

[music |Tough Crowd on Comedy Central]

I know next to nothing about the Warhammer/Warhammer 40k universe, but I've been gaming since I was 12 (I'm 24 now). I've recently joined synabetic's Warhammer 40k roleplaying game (using modified Cyberpunk 2020 rules), and I honestly think it's for the best that I don't know much about the universe. I've always been good at "playing dumb," but this FORCES me to play a character that has literally no idea of so much of the universe.

Anyway, our group recently decided that at least one of the characters needs a rubber Ork suit.

New Books [Mar. 14th, 2004|07:10 pm]
Let The Galaxy BURN!

[music |Melotron - 'Folge Mir Ins Licht']

Just got 'Caves of Ice' (WH 40k) by Sandy Mitchell and 'Witch Hunter' (WH Fantasy) by C.L. Werner.

'Caves of Ice' is the follow-up to 'For The Emperor', following the 'heroic' actions and misadventures of Commissar Ciaphas Cain and the Valhallan 597th. The first book was a kick in the pants and so far this one is great and funny as hell. Recommended!

'Witch Hunter' is penned by C.L. Werner, the american south-west native that brought us the fun and amusing Brunner the Bounty Hunter books 'Blood Money' and 'Blood and Steel'. I flipped through 'Witch Hunter' a little and it appears that Werner's writing style has matured nicely. The Brunner books were good, but not 'pro' good. 'Witch Hunter' looks like it's gonna be a fat 'pro' written action-packed work. Warhammer Fantasy fans take note!

So, just thought i'd give you guys a heads up.

Please, feel free to post about new books...books you've read or whatever...pref. warhammer related ;)

[music |Suicide Commando - 'Axis of Evil']

Is it just ME or are the wh novels' wordds becoming bigger? This leads to a bigger book of course (and actually less content) and $1US more!
I try reeeeall hard to not be one of those 'GW are greedy pigs' sorts...but damn...White Dwarf also got jacked up in price...and some of the minis...oh and everything else to.

I do admit tho...the larger print does make the novels easier to read...espically if i have to see it across a room...whenever that happens...hehehe

Serial monotony... [Mar. 2nd, 2004|04:28 am]
Let The Galaxy BURN!
Okay, I've got nothing against the various series of Warhammer novels that have appeared so far, but why does every single novel turn into a series? Why can't they just have single enjoyable novels?

I mean, sure, the single novels so far have, mainly, been less than stellar. Many are pretty shitty.

But did "The Ambassador" really need to leave me hanging? I'd like to just read a novel at some point and be done with it, instead of waiting for another to come out a year and a half later, after I've forgotten every shred of plot and all the characters from the first book...

Is anybody reading this? [Feb. 28th, 2004|04:47 pm]
Let The Galaxy BURN!

[music |Slayer - 'God Hates Us All']

I WAS gonna post in this sooner, but things have kept me busy...like reading...hehehe.

So, what BL stuff do any of you reading this like to read?
Personally i (of course) enjoy the Gaunt's Ghosts novels and just about everything else Abnett has written (cept for maybe Riders of the Dead...hmmmm...comments?). I am mildly amused by the Trollslayer books, although i really like King's Farseer book and Space Wolf series better. There are some one offs i enjoy, like Eye of Terror and Pawns of Chaos. Oh and the Commissar Cain series, can't forget that...funny stuff.
I guess overall, i enjoy the 40k books over the fantasy ones...don't get me wrong, i love warhammer fantasy, I mean, i'm reading Taint of Evil right now, and I'm really liking it. The new anthology Way of the Dead was excellent! It even had a story of Bruner the Bounty Hunter that didn't seem TOO contrived or deadline driven (hehehe...it's true!). And the rest of the stories wern't bad at all.
I should also mention the 'old' warhammer books that were very well written, like the Konrad series.

alright...enough of me...
What do YOU say?
