@Kaliphon: I've removed your comments as per what I stated above, and I welcome you to contact me at if you'd like to discuss further. Trying to keep comments 40k related.
Hey Angel, Metal Commander, I've removed your posts for the reasons mentioned above. I'm totally taking responsibility for starting it considering I mentioned the protest, but as I mentioned just above, I don't want this to turn into a place of heated debate. Not that I agree or disagree with you.

As always, you're free to contact me at
@Dave: Hey guys! I appreciate the dialogue. While I don't agree with Matt's assessment of me he's entitled to his opinion. But I don't want the comic page to become a discussion on politics. I only meant to state where I, personally, was going to be. I welcome you to email me at if you want to continue, but I'm going to cut it off here out of respect for having a last bastion of escapism and the rest of the folks on my team who I can't represent.
@Lord Inquisitor Fleischmann: Holt is an old word for township, so you're going to find lots of pictures of rural cow milking activities.

That said we certainly couldn't help ourselves either.
@Hatfylld Människa: I make exceptions for fish.

Orks however... now there's some boyz who know how have a good time.
We saved you the trouble

I mean, there's repressed, and then there's just unhealthy. (This is actually in the results, we looked.)

Some other news: While our comic may be a safe bastion from the chaos going on in the world around us, things are less tidy here in Boston. I'll be amidst the counter protesters showing up at the commons this coming Saturday to remind our visitors hate isn't welcome here. So wish me luck.

In other news, things may be rocky on the update schedule until mid October. Things are still in the air, but if you guys saw the diagram at the front of the make blog Warhammer Community published the other week (second part's out by the way,) it's a bit like that again. So wish me luck AND sanity.

But on the bright side, holy shit! New warhammer RPG coming out!!! YES!!! With the same cool dudes who made the last ones fantastic too! We can't wait!

In any case, I look forward to getting to finish the rest of the chapter. Things just had to slow down when I got to my favorite part :c
@Magical Zombie!: Whooaaaa nelly thanks for the heads up, and sorry about that. Closed the link.

AFAIK, she closed it herself a while back. I guess a porn blog snapped up the url :\
@Lord Inquisitor Fleischmann: narrative explanation: because he's half Atillian and this is his first time in the sun, so he tans quickly.
Real explanation: He'd always been 'dusky', but after I'd heaped all the shading layers on it was too subtle to notice, and it wasn't until page 21 that I made a pallet reference sheet. Everyone kept changing until then.
We need your Grimdarkest recipes!
All kinds of cool things going on this week with more hustling on the way. Good news means you might seeing some other neat stuff from me, bad news is the comic might have to be every-other-week for the next couple posts depending on how things go. Which stinks, because we're getting to one of my favorite parts.

But hey, the work I did for Warhammer Fest went up on Warhammer community as a two part make blog, check out the first half here!

Also, in the meantime, we've started on our booklet project for next year, click the image below for details!

It's time for good news bad news!
Good news is there's another neat thing I'm working on at the moment, bad news is the strip will need to take a break next week while I juggle work and side hustle.

Even more better news, the long retired Troops section is currently being redesigned and re-scripted and it's coming along well. Gonna be all slick and responsive and shiz. Aw yeah. Expect an update in a week or two, side-hustles/work allowing.

And finally, for one last bit of good news- I've finally come up with a great (belated) something-or-other to both celebrate our 101th page and keep next week occupied with some good fun. Tune in this time next week on our facebook page for more details.
@artemi: Only War idea: Escorting Lord Inquisitor Attenborough of Ordos Xenos through Tyranid infested territory as he soothingly informs you about their nesting and mating rituals.
Talon: Hey, there's still Korolis, Solar Mariatus, Kalisus and that shit hole Prosan. And Kasr Holn! That's where I was trained. Cadia's more than Cadia Prime, yo. I take offence to that!
Talon:And guardsmen come from Uranus! Huh huh huh.
Mum, where do techpriests come from?
Mars, of course.
@Cpt. Johannes Wyss von Krieg:
Holt: You know, Talon, just because you haven't put forth the effort to familiarize yourself with the other commanders doesn't mean they're compromised.
Objuration Mechanicum
Those old psyker talents were always great for getting up to hijinks, I particularly miss the DH1talents. Were they balanced, hell no, but the misadventures were legendary.

Next week is our 100th strip! That's pretty exciting! I have no idea what we'll do for it, but I can promise you I'll think on it very diligently! ...And then probably run out of time to do anything special for the occasion because I've just been kicking off a new client project at work. Alas.

One thing I DO want to do is post all the amazing fan work I got over my birthday last week, because those were amazing. I need to put our gallery together.
@The Crimson Bear: Re: Disclaimer - clearly you're just not winding up enough!
Deep Dream!
I always thought that deep dream shit looked like warp daemons. Now I've actually gotten a chance to use it to cheat and make warp daemons.

Go have yourself a warp phenomenon. -
Back to work
Hey guys, I was pretty burnt out after putting together some props you might have seen on display at Warhammer Fest this past month, and while I missed doing the comic each week I needed some time to recover and, more importantly, knuckle down on my day job and tidy my life back into order.

Having also caught back up on the comments- I'm not going to reply to them piecemeal, but I'd like to gently remind anyone who's interested that I do this as a labor of love around a full-time job and other commitments. It takes me upwards of 14 hours a week to produce these, but I do it because I love the community and want to give back.

Please lend me your patience when my life needs to take precedent, and try to remember I'm not asking anything from you in return.

That's all, schedule will resume as normal until chapter end.

P.S. - It's my birfday this week. Hooray
@NotHolt: Talon: Bolts are expensive, yo!
