Oooh, it's the guy from the Man in the Highcastle. Great series to complement a good book. Hopefully that cred works its magic to make this something worthwhile.

Through Flanders, Portugal and Spain.

I'd rather volunteer to shred hordes of Guardsmen apart with hostile Xenos war machines.

If Gaunt's ghosts do actually come out what actor do you think should play Gaunt? I think Craig.

This thought had also crossed my mind, though I hope they keep Abnett on board for either.

Though with the Ghosts, I can see each story arc forming a season.

I'd say Sean Bean but he might be a tad too old at that point. I can also see Josh Brolin:

He gets the "rugged badass with some hidden fatherly qualities" look just right I'd say.

I also just discovered that Gaunt is blonde in some illustrations and dark-haired in others. Not sure how his complexion is described in the books.

Gaunt's inspiration Richard Sharpe did live though. Such a badass that not even being played by Sean Bean could kill him.

We could fill the first ten pages about the new contrast paints. Ameriganistan apparently was already planning to launch a new one once this one is fully filled.

Halfords car primer used to be the rattle can of choice for undercoating back in the day when we had a choice of white or black spray undercoat.
