I can’t believe I missed it! I missed it by a week! I missed the release day of the December, 2011 White Dwarf issue (if you live in North America, the issue I’m talking about is #383). It totally flew below my radar, and I just realised it was on the shelves seven days after the fact! Mind you, with last month’s issue being not much more than a bunch of forgettable articles, wrapped in Necrons and drizzled in retcon, there’s only so much guilt I can feel about being late picking up this month’s issue.
(Very incendiary post title, n’est ce pas?)
Actually, I really (really) like John Blanche’s art work.
The only thing I dislike about John Blanche’s body of work is the rust-washed sketches he’s done rather a lot of. I don’t think they’re particularly horrible; I just think it’s a shame that SO much of his work is constituted of these sketches that seem to be more his thumbnail sketches exploring ideas than “art” per se.
