Recently a past member of the Exodus Wars crew passed away. Daniel Ward was handled packaging and despatch for SCP for a year before moving onto model design. The models on our Shapeways store are his collaborative work with Christian Salling. He was working on a wheeled variant for us before his death and was to be the sculptor for our 6mm Edenites. He would have been a perfect candidate for GW's new specialist games sculpting position.

Dan had been the victim of several homophobic incidents, including at least one assault. In the end, he took his own life.

I'd been friends with Dan for over a decade and he was a dedicated gamer, a massive sci-fi geek and a true and caring friend. For him to be driven from this world by hate is a particularly cruel fate for a man who brought so much love into this world.

The world has just become a significantly less colourful place.

Very sad for you and the world in general. So much horror in the world - it seems the worst aspects of the human race are ascendant and the good souls that display so much promise are being crowded out. The evil don't play fair, have ethics or empathy. The enablers continue to promote the entitlement of the evil/sociopathic across the world.

My Deepest condolences Tom.

It is no surprise on how much hate for everything "different" from a perceived "norm".

That is why I have very limited contact with most people.

May he find the peace denied in life.
