It's not 2016 anymore, so time to kill off the old thread and bring in the new one. So far nobody newsworthy has died, so shall we start off with some speculation about who will be the first? Will Trump have one bucket of KFC too many on his private jet and not even make it to inauguration day? Will England have a new monarchy? Will {your favorite musician} finally pay the price for all that sex, drugs, and rock and roll? Place your bets, fellow forum members!

Laying low in a blood filled trench
Kill time 'til my very own death
On my face I can feel the falling rain
Never see my friends again

In the smoke, in the mud and lead
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread
Soon be time to go over the wall
Rapid fire and end of us all

Yup, he died Saturday (Sunday to us).
It was a parting shot from 2016. A "goodbye, farewell and Amen" so to speak.

I'm 49.

Yeah, downright morbid. Let's not get into predicting and just report who dies when they actually die.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 12/01/17, including usual wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~10300 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1000 | Space Wolves: ~1500
Inquisition: ~200 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~Coming soon!
Tau Empire: ~5700 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~7700 | Death Guard: ~1900 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2300

There is a website dedicated to this. Morbidity aside, going through the site's records is actually quite interesting.

So, somebody crashed through our company building sign into a tree and died. Dunno when it happened, or who it was. I thought it was vandals at first, until my coworkers pointed out the wrecked tree and flowers tied to it.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

A lot of people have already died although no one famous really, and if some filthy rich person keels over I suppose the internet will howl in sorrow as always


Try to keep a blank page
But these memories they cloud my mind with grief
Faces lost forever
And the guilt of feeling some kind of relief
But when the end finally comes I won't despair
I'll just keep on hoping I might see you there

Depends on the way we would figure out you died. Someone local could do it, and PM a mod to take it over, or make a new one and keep this one as the Peregrine Memorial Thread™

A hero?! Dude, New Years Eve was three nights ago. You can't still be drunk.

On a surly Warboar, leading the Waaagh!

George Kosana, who played Sheriff McClelland in the 1968 horror film "Night of the Living Dead," has died at age 81, according to John Russo, who co-wrote the film with George A. Romero.

I was just coming here to see if had been posted yet. Apparently he popped up on Deadliest Warrior and was a fan favorite there. Never saw that show but I did watch Future Weapons.

Healing surges are for fools. Fools and liberals.

Calvin: I'm thinking of starting my own talk radio show. I'll spout simplistic opinions for hours on end, ridicule anyone who disagrees with me, and generally foster divisiveness, cynicism, and a lower level of public dialog!

Yeah, this was one that surprised me. I didn't even know he had brain cancer. It was a shock, to be honest.



Another one for 2017. English art critic, screenwriter, and novelist John Berger died on January 2, 2017. He was 90.
