As the release of Games Workshop
audio drama and audio book productions often comes as a bit of a surprise, it's surprising that the release this month of The Either,
has come as a bit of a surprise; if you get my drift.
So, without further ado, here are some details of the production and a link to the trailer, which to my eager ears, sounds pretty fab:
Tybalt Marr, Captain of the Sons of Horus, swears to bring down a thorn
in the Warmaster's side: the commander of the so-called "Shattered
Legions", the infamous Shadrak Meduson.
Captain Tybalt Marr of the Sons of Horus, so often overlooked by his
more glory-hungry brethren, returns to his Legion in triumph. However,
his boasts of having slain the infamous Iron Hands warleader Shadrak
Meduson soon fall flat when he learns of the recent assassination
attempt on Horus himself. Gathering his forces upon the conquered world
of Dwell, Marr returns to battle against the Shattered Legions,
determined to earn his rightful place in history.
Gareth Armstrong, John Banks, Robin Bowerman, Ian Brooker,
Steve Conlin, Toby Longworth,
Luis Soto & Ramon Tikaram
Written by Graham McNiell and Produced by Matthew Renshaw

I'm really looking forward to listening to The Either; indeed, I'm looking forward to catching up with the last several Games Workshop and Big Finish releases, some of which I don't yet have copies of. In truth, I've just been too busy to do much of anything recently, as I've either been recording or preparing to record something and have spent most of my time over the last few months in a recording studio somewhere.
Yesterday, producer Neil Gardner and I completed recording a fairly epic book, details of which will follow as soon as I'm allowed to talk about them. I say epic as it was over a thousand pages in length and featured more than 155 named characters. After six days of recording, I was just about wrung out, mentally and physically; sitting fairly still in front of a microphone, fully concentrating and articulating an average of 180 or so pages per 8, 9 or 10 hour session, trying to seemlessly flow between each character voice, expressing their various emotional journeys and describing monumental and very fast moving battle scenes was... extremely tiring - as you can imagine!
Now I have a few days to catch up with the rest of my life and prepare for what's coming next. And coming next for me is some more Big Finish this week, another fairly epic audio book next week - 900 pages and 63 characters - and then off to Games Workshop for another audio book adventure with some Space Marines - huzzah! There will probably also be a very interesting little project for RNIB, but more of that and everything else to come.
...all for now, more just as soon as it happens!
