Incoming! Orcs & Goblins; Warhammer miniatures; A Thousand Sons
Waaagh! (That's almost as much fun to type as it is to yell. Well, almost) The Orcs & Goblins are gathering in force and will be joined by some reinforcements in May.

Suitably enthused by the news of new greenskins and what it might mean for Warhammer, this morning I went for a walk around the building to see what square-based hobby I could uncover.
Oh, and remember this blog from a couple of weeks ago, which featured the Black Library Live event, well last week Graham McNeill's new novel Horus Heresy: A Thousand Sons became the UK's No.1 bestselling book in the Science Fiction & Fantasy genre. This is the first time a Black Library novel has ever topped the book charts and as I'm sure you can imagine, the guys over in BL were rather excited. On Friday afternoon, Graham popped by the Black Library office to drop off a manuscript and pass on his thanks to the rest of the BL team for their help in making the book such a success. I caught up with him briefly and asked him what he thought about the book's success:
'I found out by email on [last] Tuesday night and I thought, oh that's nice. It wasn't really until the next day when I realised hey, this is a big deal. I mean wow.'
He also asked me to pass on his thanks to everyone that showed up for Black Library Live for their enthusiasm and input, he had a great time with you all.
