Sad day indeed.  I must admit to my shame though, of having never read any of his work, as yet.

The full platoon, finished as far as I can:



When they get home, the heavy weapon tractors will be added. I will also add packs to the loaders and some sort of comms equipment to one member from each unit (command and each infantry squad). Then they will get some paint before I crack on with the next platoon.

I am beginning to wish that I had brought more of them with me to convert as I have now run out and will have to make do with sculpting penguins :(

It is a terrible shame. I am torn between celebrating the all the stuff he produced, and regretting all of the stuff he will never write.

Mort was the first one I read, way back in  1989, and still my favourite, but Good Omens is excellent too

Sad day.  :(

'The Colour of Magic' was the first Fantasy book I'd read as an adult, and really pulled me back into the genre.
I find his writing funny, clever and unpretentious, original in a genre of clichés and never tedious to read.
Admittedly, not everyone's cup of tea, but thoroughly entertaining and absorbing nonetheless.

He'll be sorely missed.

R.I.P. Sir Terry.

It is a terrible shame that he has departed :(

He wrote some really top stuff over the years and it is sad that altzheimers hit him like it did.

RIP

He'll be sorely missed. And I'd just recently finished re-reading Reaper Man, too. I've never seen an author who seemed to be more at peace with his own mortality.

I have 3 iwatas and just picked up one of these Harder and steenback or whatever they are called, quite nice actually, well worth the money and cheaper than my Iwatas

Rivet Wars factory WIP! A chimney Fred Dibnah would be proud of! 4 grid large building (or it could actually be used as a smaller 2 grid factory), Internal rooms designed in such a way that you will have to fight for every inch of ground! Combine it with the Choo Choo and imagine a multitude of scenarios. Maybe you have to protect the train delivering walker parts so you can recruit the Boss mechs, or maybe the factory is building the mechs and slowly loading them onto the train together with supplies to deliver to the front line, chop chop before the Blight forces capture the factory! How about using it as a forward repair facility similar to the Medic tent? What next? working on a couple of replacement ruined sections for it and then maybe some bunkers, possibly a secret lab for Dr Vorne's nefarious experiments..how about a portal to another dimension while we are at it (think along the lines of a stargate type thing) hmmmmm



The little conveyor is removable so you can effectively use these two rooms as a large warehouse maybe?
