Bi-weekly updates for August.

Troops section in progress!

Eagle Ordinary

Officer's daily tip 5013: It is easy to overlook one of your platoon's greatest sources of intel: The men! Remember to listen to them! Knowing the difference between the screams caused by a grot's shank or a kroot's blade can mean the difference between life and death for the survivors!

Chapter 3 Fin!

I distinctly remember wondering if I would ever make it to this point of the comic nearly a hundred pages ago.

Between now and then over 3 years and 1,600 hours of work has passed (and that's not including Dave, Richard, Sio, and Jon's time writing, or Moses's editing!) That's 66 days of straight drawing, nuts! Imagine if I'd put that into something more productive, like working on my non-existent ice sculpture or piano skills.

A lot has changed since then, in terms of writing, style, and the lives of everyone involved in this comic. Two of us have become parents, careers have changed, and from this point on things are going to change quick in the comic too. We're just at the end of the first arch, and trapped between a hammer and anvil our party will have the option to crack or harden. I'm exciting to dig into the next chapter, but that will have to come after Adepticon. Which brings me to my next point!

Headed to Adepticon???

We'll be there too! Come say hi, or have your models or costumes repaired at our medic booth. Richard and I will be volunteering our time to help anyone in need of a fix-up with glue, paint, brushes, epoxy, zipties and more. We'd love to see you there! Also, join us Saturday when we help judge the cosplay contest!

But that's not all,
this week we're doing an ama on reddit!

Join David, Richard, and I with any questions you have! Be it about plot stuff, making a comic, or even how to make the best damn pie you've ever had, (Richard is a master baker,) we're looking forward to sharing our misadventures and questionable wealths of knowledge with the internet.

Finally, and most importantly,
We've been gifted with additional fine works of art from two of some of my very favorite people. Mika has graced us again this week with one of my favorite characters, miss Aetta Holt! (God I love this. I'm glad I'm finally to a point where I genuinely appreciate it when people draw my characters better than I can. She's just perfect.)

And my very own girlfriend Emika was kind enough to surprise me with my favorite old man this week as well. A welcome treat in the middle of a tricky work week from a very sweet and compassionate person. I'm lucky to know you.

Stay tune for next week when I add in Wrath and Glory's How to Play pages! The next season will be off to a rocky start as I sort out some life stuff next month, but bare with me, we'll be on our way to forging the next arch very shortly.

It seems the warp interference has lessened the moral of my guardsmen is now restored. Glory to the emperor.

Waaaaaiit . Those civilians have neat tatoos on their necks ... just like certain Beinton had when he got infe- .... Oh SHIT .

March 13th, 2018, 8:15 am

@Guardsman Bob: I had the exact same reaction.

WHAT! That one came out super quickly! You caught me off guard and now I'm not the first comment. Good stuff.

Hope is the first step in disappointment...

I know this wasn't what you were going for, but I came away with two thoughts. I want an Aquila hoody like that kid has, and, I want an Imperial Guardsman plushy.

Now, leaving that aside. Those poor poor civilians.

March 14th, 2018, 3:37 am

@Rhys: i also want the hoody and guard plush.

March 12th, 2018, 6:59 pm

Oooh... boy, this is gonna get worse before it gets better.

Also, this is NOT how I expected our first look at the Adepta Sonoritas to look like! lol

I've been following this for the last six or so months since learning of its existence from r/40klore. Keep it up, this is bloody incredible

March 13th, 2018, 2:15 am

Oh no.

March 13th, 2018, 12:16 pm

Well, even if fun and lighthearted this is still 40k, bad things happen all the time. Let's hope that it be painless for them, at least.

Oh, and may the Emperor in His grace find worthy that GW keeps calling you for webpage drawings. Worth it, always.

I love the last panel! The citizens of the Imperium are mostly forgotten by the lore, given that the "interesting stuff" for the miniature game are the wars and battles. Seeing a normal family going through bad times reminds me what the Imperial Guard fights for, aside from the grimdark reasons.

Aetta's last comment though... it's not "What could go wrong?" but it's pretty close to tempting fate!

An Imperial Guardsmen plushy needs to be a thing. Why is it not already a thing?! That's Heresy!
