Alan Bligh Has Passed



My friend and the lord of The Horus Heresy at Forge World, Alan Bligh, passed away yesterday. 

Alan was a friend of mine and he was a fantastic talent.  I love this photo of Alan, because this is what he looked like, sitting there at his table, when I last spoke with him at The Horus Heresy Weekender in February.  We started chatting about a couple burning questions that had been consuming debate on the Heresy30K Forums:

Could you shoot at a Dreadnought in a Dreadnought Drop Pod the turn it arrives, and WTF with the one grenade rule?

Now those questions seem ridiculous compared to the loss of the man who basically created the Horus Heresy game we all love. A man who loved game design so much, and loved talking about it so much, that he radiated the joy of gaming as if he was Santa Clause on Christmas every day of his life.  That is how I remember Alan, he LOVED what he did so much that after you talked to him, you could think of doing nothing else than diving into it even more. I would come away from every Horus Heresy Weekender reinvigorated for the hobby.


I considered Alan my friend.  When I was visiting Nottingham for the Horus Heresy Weekender in 2013 I ran into Alan at Bugman's bar.  He was sitting talking to John French and I introduced myself and we sat and chatted about the game.  I am sure I fanboyed all over them (yeah, hard to believe I know) and I took the above photo.  He then told me he was a donor to the Axanar project and I was floored!  This man who was so brilliant at what he did, who lead the development of this amazing game I loved more than any other, actually liked my little project?  I was so honored.  So each year after that, when I would go to Nottingham, I would try and catch up with Alan.  And this past year, at the Weekender, I didn't want to bother him, because he is so swamped, I figured I would catch him at his table (which I did) but Alan saw me and came up to me and told me we would find time to chat.  That was how he was: real, genuine, and a person who people wanted to be around.

There are two blogs you need to read if you knew Alan, are a fan of The Horus Heresy, or just want to know why we all cared about this man so much.

Aaron Dembski-Bowden is not only an amazing author but a truly wonderful guy.   His blog is worth reading if you didn't know what Alan was like and want to see what his friends say about him.  

Aaron Dembski-Bowden's Blog

John French was one of Alan's best friends as well as a Horus Heresy author.  His blog is another worthwhile read on Alan.

I hope you will all take the time to read about Alan.  He surely will be missed.

8th Edition Release Date Announced



8th Edition launches June 3rd.

And it looks amazing!


From Games Workshop:

June 3rd – mark your calendars folks, because that’s the day you’ll be able to pre-order your copy of the new edition of Warhammer 40,000. You’ll then be among the first to get your hands on it come release day on June 17th.

Fresh from the forges of Mars, and ready to bleed in defence of the Imperium, the Primaris Space Marines have come tooled for war. The bolt rifle-wielding Intercessors are the mainstay of the force. Alongside them march plasma-toting Hellblasters, providing deadly fire-support. And dropping in from orbit are Inceptors with the short range fury of their twin assault bolters.

Leading these new warriors are the champions of the Primaris Space Marines: the inspiring presence of the Lieutenants, the banner-carrying Ancients, and the commander of the force, a Captain clad in new Gravis armour.


The Death Guard are equally impressive. First up, a unit of Plague Marines. The archetypal unit of the XIV Legion swollen with the raw power of decay, these form of the core of any Death Guard force. Nurgle fans will also be pleased to see a shambling plague host represented by the repugnant and varied Poxwalkers, each draped in scraps of clothing from their former lives. There is a new vehicle on offer too – the Foetid Bloat-drone, a floating Daemon Engine that hunts its prey with a malign intelligence. 


Rounding off the Death Guard are their own leaders, including a huge new Lord of Contagion, clad in warped Cataphractii Terminator plate and wielding one of the most brutal looking axes we’ve ever seen. Alongside him is the Noxious Blightbringer, a dark reflection of the noble Legion banner bearers of old, who carries a cursed plague bell that tolls with the death knell of his victims. Last but not least is the Malignant Plaguecaster – one of the pestilent sorcerers of this pox-ridden Legion.


A complete set of datasheets to field both these Death Guard and Primaris Space Marines armies are included in two separate booklets inside the box. You’ll also find a host of new background information on the two forces and on the Plague Wars being fought in Ultramar.

And of course, there’s the new Warhammer 40,000 book itself. This 280-page, hardback tome is included in the Dark Imperium box and is also available separately. This book is your guide to the new edition and contains an extensive exploration of the Warhammer 40,000 setting. This includes some pretty major advancements in the story for every faction in the galaxy, not least of which are the arrival of the Great Rift, the rise of Chaos, and the launching of the Indomitus Crusade.

And rules. Lots of rules. All the rules you need to wage the bloodiest of wars in the far future. Alongside the core rules for the game, there are missions, full guidelines for the 3 ways to play (open, narrative and matched) and advanced rules to represent the myriad war zones of the far future, including all the rules you need to play games of Cities of Death, Planetstrike, Stronghold Assault and Death from the Skies.

This is easily the most complete Warhammer 40,000 book to date.


All very exciting and looking forward to see this ported over to Heresy 30K!
