One of the most intriguing elements of the Black Library's Horus Heresy series is its penchant for filling in gaps that exist in the Warhammer 40,000 universe's established history. Since all that has been traditionally provided concerning an event that spans decades is a brief overview for the sake of context, the potential for storytelling, character building etc is almost infinite.
Whilst the Thousand Sons legion arguably boast one of the most complete and traumatic backgrounds of any of the original Space Marine legions, there is an era of their history that has always been decidedly vague, lacking anything but the most supeficial and perfunctory details: that following their flight from Prospero and establishment on the daemon world that would become known as Sortiarius, Planet of the Sorcerers.
We here at The Fluffenhammer have something in common with the Fluffers that come onto the show: namely that we began our journeys with the help of those Lords of the Boards, MB Games. In particular, Heroquest has often been namechecked as the first step in the plastic strewn path of this hobby.
With this in mind, we have a collection of articles on this very famous, but unfortunatly long-dad franchise that we would like to share with you.
We begin with the Heroquest Winter Special, by Marvel Comics
Released in 1991 by Marvel Comics, the Heroquest Winter Special contained a vast swathe of articles, short stories, a comic, and a whole new Quest to take your adventurers on. The largest of the short stories has been covered by us here on the Fluffenhammer (CHEAP PLUG!)
You can find the issue below to download, and we hope you enjoy!
We here at The Fluffenhammer look back on our youth in the wilds of Games Workshop with something of a glint in the eye. Whilst nostalgia is all well and good, seeing the old pamphlets and printed pages brings a sense of longing back to these quickly-approaching-middle-aged Fluffers.
With this in mind, we have dug out a very old publication, John Blanche's first ever How To Paint book, published in the heady days of 1989.
We hope you enjoy this look back to the days of lead gone by.
We kick off the Fluffenhammer's brand spanking new site with a collection of scans taken from ye olde White Dwarf of days gone by. We hope to bring to you ever-watchful eyes a collection of Hammer-joy shaped by our ever-whipped wordsmiths and thrice dammed Archivists.
Without further ado, here are the wek's releases:
