The Weekly Update For Sunday, March 30th, 2014 - Losing Another Of My Generation

Galley 'Nemesis', alongside Harchar's Tnek - DLA MMM game

The major news this past week has been that we've lost yet another of my generation, brilliant artist Dave Trampier. I won't try to say what I feel about this - I don't think I can, I'm sorry - but may I suggest you have a look at the wonderful tributes to him being posted across the blogosphere.

He was a good man, and I'll miss him; he was a casualty of the Blume brothers' business style oat TSR, like so many other good people were.

Mike Burns' 'Ancient Egyptian' Indiegogo has ended, with some $11,600 dollars being raised on a goal of $2,000. It looke like we'll be getting more then eighty new figures, which is not at all bad!!!

Jeff Dee's Kickstarter for his "Bethorm" Tekumel RPG continues, and is doing well; may I suggest you use the link to Uni Games in the left-hand column and have a look? Thanks!

Today is, I think, the last day of this year's 'Gary Con' in Lake Geneva; I hope that they did well, and people had fun.

I'm not sure when I'll schedule this years David L. Arneson Memorial Maritime Miniatures Mayhem event - suggestions, anyone?
