Well, what happened there then? For the first couple of months of this year, posts were coming up on Heresy & Heroes thick and fast. And then, just like that, they stopped a few weeks back. So what happened? Well, I have been exceptionally busy, but for a truly awesome reason.
Yours truly, the author of this illustrious blog (well, I think it’s illustrious – it’s at least illustri-ish), will be moving up to a beautiful town in the East Midlands at the end of this month. That town is called Nottingham. And I have a new job in Nottingham. At Warhammer World. I am going to be working for the Warhammer Community team on their website! *screeches with inaudible excitement and does funky dance* No big deal.
Ok, so I’ve only wanted to work for GW since I was about 9 years old. And I went up for an interview in late March and they said that they wanted me. I remember sitting in a room, with freakin’ Ghal Maraz behind me, and thinking “well, I’m just happy I got to interview” and so I can’t tell you how excited I am that it all went so well and that I’ll be part of the Warhammer Community team, working on their website very soon.
Now, I can’t say too much more, but hopefully I’ll be able to bring a lot of what has made Heresy & Heroes so fun to Games Workshop’s Community site. So, keep your eyes peeled for more news there, and maybe even my name every now and again.
But, having had to do so much admin, so much packing, talking to cleaners, and movers, and hotels… I haven’t had any time to paint. I started work on a genestealer cult gang for Necromunda but that’s all been packed away now. In fact, most of my life has been packed away now, but I’ll be unpacking it all in my new flat in Nottingham by the end of the month.
Heresy & Heroes isn’t going anywhere either. It will always be here, and I will update it as and when I can once I’ve started. I’m going to be a very busy man once i get up there, but I’m going to try and find the time to keep you guys up to date on my painting work. I could never truly desert you lot – you’re part of the reason I got this job. True, my raw charisma, charm, talent and intelligence played their part, but you’ve given me almost five years to hone my craft, so thanks for that. Pats on backs all round.
I hope that explains the silence around here, and that you’re satisfied with the reasons why I’ve not been posting so much of late. I have been a ball of anxiety, nerves, excitement and joy for a while now, but I wanted to make sure you knew where I was and where I was going, and to look out for me in my grey t-shirt when you come up to Nottingham. If you spot me at an event, I do hope you’ll come up and say hello.
For the first time in a long time, and certainly not for the last time; Onwards!
