Following from my last post it would be uncharitable not to look forward to what's in store for 2012 (Mayan apocalypse aside).
This is somewhat of a difficult task for me as I wholly agree with the sentiments of the Victorian philanthropist Henry Wellcome who proclaimed, "Never tell anyone what you propose to do until you have done it." Suffice it to say that I intend 2012 to be a year of radical change and this will be reflected on both the creative and personal fronts. All I can say is there's some profound things in the works. What I can reveal is that I have nearly completed a commercial project which you will see later this year.
There are quite a few cultural events I am looking forward to. 2012 will see the release of Ridlet Scott's hotly anticipated Prometheus and a trip back to Middle Earth in the form of the first part of The Hobbit. I don't like indulging in rumors about what GW will produce next, but it's looking like there might be a new edition of 40K which, in my book, is always an exciting event. Kallamity's Abakan 2288 will be released, which I am very much looking forward to. I am somewhat curmudgeonly about the Olympics - they have and will bring welcome regeneration the East End and trade to this country in what are difficult times, but the fuss and bother leave me cold. I am always kicking myself that I am not more abreast of video games and anime so I am not sure what's emerging there. Perhaps it should be a resolution of mine to stay in touch with these cultures?
Today I have just shot a great number of minis, both old and new, so please stay tuned for forthcoming posts.
I wish you all a happy and productive 2012!
