A Few Things To Listen To

Seeing how in the recording for the next episode of Edge of Empire, I had my taste in nerdy music revealed, I thought why not share a few of my favourite geeky songs, specifically for Chris and Graham.

So yeah this is the kind of stuff I like to listen to a lot!

What I am Modelling

I started by getting some of Nikis Death Korps of Krieg Done in the form of the Thudd Guns and Heavy Mortars and their crew.

I then started to crack on with the scenery we got from Scottish Graham, first up were the Promethium Relay Pipe’s.

Then a pair of Haemotrope Reactors and Thermic Plasma Regulators which went to my Sector Mechanicus Killzone box.

Going back to Scottish Graham’s stuff, I then did some Thermic Plasma Conduits and another pair of Haemotrope Reactors

Then I did a few bits of Aegis Defence Lines, a pair of Vengeance Weapons Batteries, and a Bastion.

For Graham’s tables, all I am left to do is another Bastion, a Sacriston Forgeshrine and a few little bits of scatter terrain.

What I am Reading

I haven’t done much reading this week other than the Nighthaunt Battletome.

What I am Playing

On Sunday I played at the South Tyneside Heresy event, and I had a very good day.

I took Word Bearers and my lists can be read here, it’s a weird setup, you can take a Lord of War, but only in a single game, so very unusual.

My first game was pretty good, was an ambush deployment which is always a nightmare and I managed to roll to not go in the centre, instead my opponent, a lovely Solar Auxilia player was subjected to that.

My Word Bearers did some Deamon summoning and I kinda swamped his deployment zone with wave after wave of Plaguebearers and Bloodletters, which allowed me to nicely win the game, but I struggled against his armour.

The second game was against a Salamanders list, that was tough, I would have got my Glaive out, but the terrain on the board was way too dense to even allow me to think about that.

It was mostly infantry, with some Jetbikes, but no matter what I did I just couldn’t overcome his forces, and he did end up the best loyalist general.

My last game was against Graham, which was a lot of fun, again biggest issue was my lack of anti-armour, and his Firedrakes ripped apart the Glaive.

So overall three good games, but I really need to sort out some reliable anti-armour for the Word Bearers.

On Tuesday I played a game of Adeptus Titanicus against James, I lost, again, but I went in very much the underdog with only 1700pts to his 2000pts.

The Acastus Knights are really powerful, so you won’t be surprised to hear I have myself bought some!

What I am Backing

Fiasco has successfully funded, which is great, and I am backing the Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items 2 quickstarter, which is my 99th backer project.

Also my stuff from Cognition Volume #1 project arrived, and I am very happy with that.

What I am Cooking

Not a sausage

What I am Spending

Probably spent a bit too much!

Popped into Forbidden Planet and bought myself a few issues of Warhammer 40,000 Conquest, specifically an issue containing the Thermic Plasma Regulators and some issues with the Haemotrope Reactors, and then I went to Travelling Man and grabbed my monthly paint restocking, and the Kill-o-Meter for Warhammer 40,000 Munchkin.

I also bought the new Kill Team Starter Set, specifically because I needed five Reivers, and some more Fire Warriors and the terrain is going to join the original Killzone Sector Mechanicum to hopefully make up a full table of that terrain, along with a pair of the Haemotrope Reactors and Thermic Plasma Consuits.

I also bought Combat Arena from Barnes and Noble, I really love Gorechosen and a 40k version is right up my street, plus the models look great too, and that turned up in record time considering it came all the way from the US.
