Don't worry. None of this blood is mine.

At the Heresy Meeting…

Photos from the scene.

The thrills!

The spills!


Look how unimpressed Graham is. This one’s a keeper.

    • Do you think that means Steve Jobs will reincarnate as Horus?

  3. “And I have to eat what? With who? For how much… while who watches me?!?”

  4. It actually looks like Dan is being sucked into Graham’s fist

  5. It looks like you are at a press panel answering questions from BL about Heresy plots.

    BL: Can we have more input, please?
    ADB: Sorry, our contracts seem to state you cannot.
    BL: But the 11th Chapter must never…

  6. Its not as gothic as Chris Wraight made it seem, or does the gothicness come out later?

    • The power of imagination.
      On that topic, the computer mouse I am currently using just turned into Godzilla.

  11. Wow, both of you look extremely enthusiastic :p

  12. As if by magic, Dan Abnett appears! He is the Mr Ben of the Heresy meeting no doubt.

    BL: “So when are you going to finish Betra…ugh!”
    Graham: “Aaron did you just hit him with a blowpipe dart?”
    Aaron: “Yes I did. The spasms will subside in three hours.” *strokes chin*

    • After his later post of facebook I think it would be more like:

      BL: “So when are you going to finish Betra…ugh!”
      Graham: “Aaron did you just hit him with a blowpipe dart?”
      Aaron: “No. Paper Airplane.” *strokes chin*

      • Paper Airplanes coated in tree frog venom.

  13. In the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium, there are only smooth heads…

  14. You’ve completely dissolutioned me!

    I’ve always pictured BL writers meetings as portentous events where you gather in the secret crypt beneath Warhammer World and wear dark robes while by flickering candlelight you slaughter a goat to the Deadline Gods.

    • Same here. I figured the walls would at least be stone and adorned with torches.

  15. Ok, this was yesterday, now tell us what you talked about!

  18. Maybe you could give them some hand me down beanie hats to complete the look?

  19. Were there any monkey knife fights this time? Mr Abnett still insists they occur whenever I ask him.

  20. Hi Aaron. I have a question for you regarding Void Stalker. Here “The Great Heresy was days in the past for some of the Traitors within the Eye, and FIFTY THOUSAND years gone for others”. Is it a mistake or a new WH lore? Please answer, it’s kind of crucial for correct Russian translation of your book. Thanks a lot!

    • I wasn’t sure what you meant, at first. It’s not a mistake, and it’s not new: time flows differently in the Eye of Terror – it’s probably been hundreds of thousands of years for some of the Chaos Marines in there, and about six minutes for some of the others.

      • Ok. Didn’t know about that time extension thing. Thanks for your help 🙂

      • I would hate to be the chaos marine that just popped out for a min to fetch some milk and bread

  21. So… what do you actually DO in these things, Aaron? All I remember is you saying at an interview once something about strangling James Swallow from across the table… :S

  22. Its been more than two weeks since his last blog post. If thats not a sure sign that Aaron is panicking over deadlines and hiding himself from the world I dont know what is.

    Well except for Facebook of course.
