When flying ... never forget gravity.

The Storyteller
When flying, no matter the pleasure, never forget about gravity, because landing can be a tad painful.

I was about to post again just before the end of June, at least that was the plan when I decided, inadvertently to be sure, to try flying. It was great, much enjoyed for the second or so I experienced it before gravity took over and I struck the ground. Then came the hurt after lying there thinking ... I can't move. But luckily, I eventually could and at last in great distress rose from my crumpled heap position to something that resembled one of my earlier ancestors attempts to walk on hind legs.

Ok. Ok, I wasn't just flying per say; I actually tripped over a small wall with a steeper drop on the other side in the dark and as I only had my arm to cushion the fall onto hard ground it hurt a lot more than when I once fell into a house. But that's another story.

Suffice to say I'm well on the bend, even though I may have cracked a rib, but I'm fine, and that is the reason why this blog, intended for the end of June, never happened till now.

I'll try and keep any further prattle down now and just post pictures as usual. The main theme of which is related to some old mainly foreign Games Workshop related stuff.

These were done for Le Grimoire titles.

This picture, above, was for one of the FF Advanced titles... Blacksand, but this below was, I believe, for White Dwarf/Game Workshop and because of the detail and the original size of the work I have reproduced it larger.

To conclude here are a few more picture from the past that others have posted related to Fable Lands and the Blood Sword series in the main. Shown larger than drawn size.

Next time, some work never seen [more or less [grin] before] and not too long from now. Finally a couple of pictures from the Goldhawk series by Ian Livingstone to be used in 'You are the Hero' publication I believe.

I thought, to end, a little bit of colour ... so there you have it.

Till then, thank you for looking and I do appreciate comments and questions [if I can answer them].
