Writer’s Commentary

This story was one I wrote a while before I joined Games Workshop, but which I dusted off when I realised that I still really liked it. It’s the story of a hive ganger called Snowdog who gets more than he bargained for when a drug deal goes wrong and he has to take refuge in the dark depths of the underhive where something monstrous is lurking. I like this story a lot as Snowdog is one of my favourite characters; a foul mouthed, amoral character who gets to do and say the things you always want to, but never can. It’s a cliché that bad guys get all the best lines, but I guess clichés are clichés for a reason. Snowdog was immense fun to write and when I came to plan out the plot for Warriors of Ultramar, I jumped at the chance to use him again (thankfully there wasn’t anything that gave me continuity nightmares in the short story that precluded his use in the novel…almost like I’d planned it. Almost.).
