Embedded (a taster!)

I got the first printed copy of Embedded in my hands this weekend, and very gorgeous it is too. Now the lovely.... uh... robots at Angry Robot have posted up some sample chapters to really whet your appetite.

Make my robot angry!

The Arvus has landed

My new paperweight/desk reference. I needed one to look at "hands on" for Salvation's Reach. I don't want to give the plot away, but you need to imagine three of them, battered and stripped out for a disposable ram-raid, and painted up like the Minis in the Italian Job. Okay, not literally...

God, this book is so much fun.

Anyway, I wanted it spruced up with a paint job so it wasn't bare resin, so I turned to my friend and model-maker Richard Dugher (remember his Titan?). Just a basic assemble and paint job, I said. Of course, with Rich, even his basic makes most people cry. And yes, just for fun, there is a joke colour scheme reference in the pilot's kit. He appears to have switched off his targeting computer. If you're suitably impressed, check out Rich's link (Custom Fish) opposite and tell him I sent you.

Back to work. This book is putting several pieces of Forge World kit through the wringer. And several beloved characters. Don't hate me.

See you at Black Library Live! on Saturday or Waterstone's Nottingham on Thursday night.
