Grim Darkness, but don't forget the light

My friend Scott Johnson (pictured above) has passed away after a long battle with cancer.  While we didn't see eye to eye on everything (who does?) he was a friend, a fun opponent, a good influence on the gaming community, a good father and was my blogging inspiration with My Little World of Dementia.    

His handle of Col. Killgore was even the inspiration for the Scythiak Usurpation's ogryn leader, the 40K minotaur, Killgore:

Here's links to a couple battle reports with his beloved Nurgle marines.  He was also a fond Imperial Guard, Sisters of Battle, Flesh Tearers and Ad Mech (back in the counts as days) player, aside from WHFB and myriad other systems, genres and eras.  Along with his blogging partner Chuckaroobob he could be found anywhere from the colonial battlefields of Africa to the jungles of Venus and everywhere in between.  

All things and gamers must unfortunately pass.  I will try to honor his memory by trying to continue on with his best traditions - he would play, contribute, and try to make sure everyone had a good time.  

Rest in peace Scott.  Enjoy the next game.
