With one thing and another, I’ve not been keeping up with the wargaming blogs on a regular basis over the last week or so, so it was with both surprise and sadness that I learned yesterday of the recent death of Wayne England (on 9th February), via Jake Thornton’s Quirkworthy blog.
Whilst Wayne’s work portfolio is extensive, for me he will always be associated with one particular army: his Warhammer Dwarfs, which were featured in White Dwarf issues 135, 144 & 148.
I’m probably not alone in the fact that this article cemented my a love affair with Dwarf armies that started in my time playing RPGs. The striking blue and white medieval colour scheme really helped, as it merged Dwarfs with Medieval Knights (a win-win if ever there was one)
And these ultimately influenced my own Dwarf warband
Thanks to Wayne for the memories and inspiration, and my sympathies to his family, friends and loved ones.
