Jason - Welcome back to those who started with us at Issue 1. This issue is a bumperpacked with tutorials, games resources, artwork and articles. Our ﬁrst magazine re-ceived over 4000 downloads, and we had some great comments on forums and emailmessages regarding it. For all those who either left comments on forums or emailed me,I would like to thank you all.So what has happened in the last three months? We’ve seen the re-release of an oldfavourite in Space Hulk by Games Workshop - as a result, the staff of Irregular draggedout 2nd Edition Space Hulk for a few games, check out the Blast from the Past article. Iand the rest of the Shefﬁeld Irregulars trotted down to this year Games Day UK to checkout all the new shiny stuff, as well as to enter Golden Demon.Shefﬁeld Irregulars held their ﬁrst annual painting event, which included our paintingcompetitionThe Golden Imp’s,you can see coverage of the event in the article entitledImps’.So what have I been up to? Well, apart from entering some bits and bobs into this year’sGolden Demon awards and helping with the IMP painting event, not a lot really. I’vestarted to build and paint a Spartan army for a campaign in Ancient Greece. We’ll bedoing a short report on this early next year.For those who play D&D check out Dave Barker’s article on Mould Goblins, which is avery entertaining read, and provides you with some new goblins to kill in the depths ofthe under world.What can we look forward to in the new year? It looks like there will be a plethora ofnew games with some amazing minis from UK based companies, we provide more infoas they we closer to the time. New miniature company Mantic will be releasing morefantasy ﬁgures from their range, and we check out their ﬁrst army (Elves) in this issue.Irregular magazine will have some exciting developments as we will be adding somespecial pull-out sections in future magazines, and for issue 3 we will have a ZombieApocalypse background written by Taylor Holloway.That’s all folksThis is a little early, but as issue 3 is not out until January, the team at Irregular wouldlike to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.Nick - It looks like Jason has been pretty thorough on the goings-on over the last coupleof months. What can I think to add to that? Well, back in July we visited the Shef-ﬁeld-based miniature company, Baccus 6mm, for one of their open days, and we’ll beproviding a write-up on that in issue 4. 6mm is a scale that’s interested me in the past,particularly Epic Armageddon, so it was very interesting to take a look at the productionside of things, as well as the broad selection of historical ﬁgures produced by Baccus.With a bit of luck, we’ll also have a piece on painting such small-scale ﬁgures.Jason has already mentioned that next issue will be featuring a Zombie Apocalypsebackground, and we’ll be basing the issue around the living dead, so please get yourthinking caps on. Whether its gender issues in the zombie ranks, painting ideas, scenar-ios or whatever, we’ll be looking forwards to your submissions regarding the dead thatwalk.Now I just need to get Jason to explain to me how an e-zine can be said to have a pull-out section.....
