Ragnarok 58

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Issue 58 of Ragnarok (the journal of the SFSFW) landed through my post box today including my article for Wessex Games’ Strange Tydes The Bare Belly Coast. Immediately spotted an editing error I’d made where I’d truncated a sentence… “The alliance with the Orcs eventually saw it added it to their empire as a protectorate […]

Ragnarok 58 Coming Soon

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Ragnarok Issue 58 is at the printers according to the SFSFW blog so my Bare Belly Coast article for Wessex Games’ Strange Tydes will soon be available in lovely print form. Time to finish off the Strange Grogge companion article.

The Bare Belly Coast Away

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Just sent off an article for Ragnarok a group of desert countries for Wessex Games’ Strange Tydes.  Along with details of each nations navy there are also new ship options including Lateen Rigging, naptha projectors and early cannons. The last bit of work tonight was to draw a map to go with the article.  I […]

Ragnarok 57

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

Ragnarok Issue 57 (The Magazine of the Society of Fantasy and Science Fiction Wargaming) landed through my letter box today.  My article for BTRC’s SLAG! appears along with a variety of fantasy and science fiction wargaming goodness.

Fall of the Goblin Empire

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Fall of the Goblin Empire (FoGE) is my entry for the SFSFW’s fantasy wargaming competition.  A game of goblins and their varigated, varied and highly unreliable flying machines. Here are a couple of the opening paragraphs that set the scene for a game of goblins going up-tiddle-ee-up coming down-tiddle-ee-down-down… Ask anyone and they will tell […]

Street Hawker

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

I’ve been looking for an idea for a new article to send in for the SFSFW’s Ragnarok and I think I may just have found it a mashup of Steampunk and the short lived 80’s TV show Street Hawk… This is the Honourable Jesse Macintosh, a former penny-farthing policeman, whose reputation was perilously injured whilst […]

Aeronef

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Tonight I’ve added a page to my web site about Wessex Games’ Aeronef – at the moment it is an article I wrote for Ragnarok War Kites and Flying Batteries.

Living Longer to Slag!

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Sent a short article for BTRC’s Slag off to Nick at Ragnarok earlier including three new systems and four ships designed to use them. All of them are built around a theme of creating ships that enhance the survivability of other ships through defence or distracting the enemy.

Ragnarok 55

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

The latest issues of Ragnarok (The Magazine of the Society of Fantasy and Science Fiction Wargaming) arrived by post today. An interesting mix of articles including Daleks, Zombies, SF Armoured warfare, Fantasy Naval and Luna Exploration alongside the regular rules and miniature reviews. My article, The Panzerfauste Song Book, takes up more pages than I […]

Ragnarok 52 Cover Illustration

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

Here, by popular demand, is a bigger version of the picture that is on the cover of Rag issue 52. I’m a bit embarrassed by it because it was a test that was thrown together in about 20 minutes using Poser 7 and Vue 6 Infinite (although this one could have been made is Vue […]
