Hey guys! It's been a heck of a month, hasn't it? EO may have been quiet, but I was keeping busy helping out the Ulisses crew with their upcoming RPG, Wrath and Glory, through the form of a quick How to Play guide, check it out!
Quick aside: When I was a bitty college student, I'd heard of 40k through my friends, (and having been introduced through Orks and early Noise Marines, knew I'd like it) but had never the time or money to find a foothold in what seemed like an impenetrable wall of lore. It wasn't until about 7 years ago when a friend visited and walked me through character creation in the Dark Heresy 1st Ed manual that I finally got a grasp on it, and it was through the eyes of my little voidborn psyker that I got introduced to the universe and came to adore it through my first campaign of Dark Heresy.
Wrath and Glory is headed by Ross Watson, the same Lead Developer as DH, Rogue Trader, and Deathwatch, and he even had his hand in Black Crusade. As such, I can't help but hold it as some spiritual successor to the 40k RPG franchise. So you can imagine how thrilled, humbled, and utterly terrified I was to get to lend my hand in some small way to the project. During the 5 weeks I was working on this little teaser for them, I also managed to catch both the cold, and the flu. Sometimes you just can't catch a break, for all other times, there's decongestants and IRON WILL.
In any case, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed drawing it. We've got one more page of this chapter coming next week (It's almost done, even!) and then I'll be posting the intro comic up here during the 'break', and doing something else special. Perhaps opening up some Q&A, maybe doing Q&A for a specific character.
As for the 'break', the pages are less regimented these days due to work so there may be only a week of break, or several depending on life/work. I'm hoping that may change soon, but it may get a bit worse before it gets better. That said, I still love working on this so just hold tight. Things will even out.
Finally, I want to give a couple thank yous, to Mika, who surprised me with this adorable Talon one of the weeks I was sick as a dog. Thank you for brightening my spirits when I was struggling. <3
And to my buddy Gabbi, who sent along this amazing post card right around the same time! I'm glad to say I got mucus on neither of them, and both are currently hanging on my wall. You guys are amazing <3
And that's it for the mega-text-update. More on Adepticon next week when the last page of the chapter goes up. See you then!
