As some of you may know, over the last year I’ve become good friends with John Blanche. He lives about a mile away from me, and I (along with another friend) tend to visit him every few weeks to roll some dice and hang out. Back in April he mentioned that Tuomas Pirinen was planning on visiting and suggested a game of Mordheim for when he was over…
I got introduced to Tuomas, and the three of us started forming a plan of doing some interviews, to coincide with Tuomas’ trip and John’s retirement from GW.
Anyhow, Monday this week that plan came to fruition, and I recorded some interviews with them both!
It was really great to be with the pair of them, and be able to talk to them about a wide variety of topics. We obviously spent a large portion of time chatting about Mordheim, John’s art, and their working relationship, but covered a few other topics also.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be editing together the interviews, and I’ll no doubt create a youtube channel to upload them to. Once they’re ready I’ll be posting on various social platforms for anyone who is interested!
Subbed and enjoyed the first episode. While personally not the biggest fan of John’s grimdark style, alwys having been more fond of the bright styles of for example mr Gallagher (who also did our beloved CD army book), John was / is essential to the hobby as one of the greatest artists of the studio. Did love his Knight Panther piece though!
