This is just a very brief update from me today (more fun to come later in the week). Did you see the Warhammer Community site this weekend? Did you notice a certain pair of name generators turn up? And a couple of names, like my name and the name of this blog? Did ya!?
That’s right – Some lunatic in Nottingham actually thought it would be a good idea to get me to contribute to actual official pages (well, I may have begged them to let me do it but whatever). I wrote a piece for the Warhammer Community website (egotistical corporate sellout that I am) and it was a real thrill to see my name, and the name of this blog on an official GW website. I was tickled screamer pink.
It was lovely working with Nick over at the Community team, and hopefully that won’t be the last bit of work I do for that website – the responses have been quite pleasant so far (by and large). I hope, my loyal and adoring fans, you’re as happy seeing my name appear in this milieux as I am.
I still haven’t managed to truly appreciate it all yet, due to the fact that I spent all of Sunday (when the post went live) playing the non-GW affiliated Twilight Imperium from Fantasy Flight games. It’s 12 hours of fun and pain that I’m still recovering from. But, when my brain is working properly again (I need another 10 hours of sleep and a gallon of water), I shall go and properly read the article. Seriously though, I now thing of 2,000 point games of 40K as light and breezy!
Check out a new take on my Necromunda name generators that I did for GW, and have a splendid, fabulous, amazing and awesome week. Onwards!
Awesome stuff 🙂
Is always a thrill to get recognition like that, keep thinking i should polish up some of my old necromunda fiction which was set in the underhive equivalent of quarks bar and see if it gets into the relaunched inferno when that happens… Although i doubt the sillyness of a bar brawl triggered by a delaque ganger destroying a goliaths highscore on the armegeddon pinball table would make the cut lol
Do it! Sounds like a good laugh and a great concept. You can but try, and if you enjoy it, then that’s the most important thing. I hope I read about it in the new Inferno! 🙂
They have a Black Library request at the moment for new writers, worth giving it a shot if you have some already done!
Awesome news John, though did you have to promise to donate your remains to be turned into a Servitor or Servo-skull upon your demise 😉
I think they’re just going to hook me up to the Astronomicon and use my psychic strength to bolster the light in the warp. I could probably give them about a 40 watt glow for 5 minutes or so.
Saw the headline over on the Warhammer Community page and felt a bit annoyed that they had posted a generator when yours was already perfect — so to hear now that it’s actually your work getting featured on “official” channels makes me really happy! Congratulations! 🙂
“I liked Johnny before he went all mega-star on us….!!”.
Congrats on leveling up your celebrity status! So awesome!
Oh, and great names in the examples! “Nick: The Neon Belles
Jon: The Jealous Hellions”
So I saw the article on Sunday. Gave it a quick skim through not really reading too carefully. Then I got to the charts. OOO charts I wonder what my gang name is…
Hey…thats the same I got off Hobby & Heroes! Wtf? Did they…actually steal his charts and pass it as their own?? Wow…
Go back…read it all again properly….OHHHHH! Brilliant! That is so cool. Congrats man, that is so cool to have your name up there and blog being represented. I hope to see more in the future!
That is awesome! Congrats!!
Great stuff man
