A Troubling Weekend

My weekend was, well it was troubling, basically I ended up in a situation which was out of my control and it was extremely uncomfortable.

I will do a post of it when I get back from holiday, but needless to say as a result I have left certain Facebook groups and found myself quite upset at the lengths some people will go to, in order to defend certain repugnant people.

I would like to thank my colleagues who rallied together and dealt with the unpleasantness in the best way we could.

The photo for this blog post is Megan’s cat Cookie, who has done his best to keep my spirits up.

What I am Modelling

I did get a few things cleared from the pile, firstly I finished off the two remaining members of my Ultramarines Sky Hunters Squad.

Then I did some little pieces for Adeptus Titanicus, the Warp Missile Rack and Vulcan Mega Bolter for the Reavers and a Macro Gattling Blaster for the Warlord.

And finally I painted my first Custodes, a Shield Captain for the Adeptus Terra Zone Mortalis Challenge.

Whilst I am away I am taking with me for the Death Korps of Krieg I am painting for Nikki, an Infantry Squad, Lascannon Teams and Command Squad, plus some Plague Marines from Dark Imperium and the two Lords of Contagion.

What I am Reading

I finished all of the Severina Raine stuff and it’s amazing, very disappointed that Honourbound isn’t getting an audio adaptation but in general it’s a great book.

Rachel has built up a rich background for the Antari Rifles, they are a really interesting group of characters, and I will admit to be being tempted to build an army based on them.

Now onto Lost and the Dammned!

What I am Playing

I played a lot at the event that I hated!

Few games of Catan which are always a lot of fun, plus lots of Dobble and Cobra Paw.

I learned to play Brainbox, Concept Kids Animals, Bad Bones, Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle, Dice Academy and I sort of learned Who Did It?

And on Monday, I got Megan, Lindsay and Paul to sit down with me and play Game 1 of Hogwarts Battle, which as a game, I love!

What I am Backing

Lindsay is backing Calico still and I have put in for the Zombicide 2nd Edition upgrade kit, although I am confused as to if it comes with the rule book or not.

I have finally gotten a tracking number the Alhambra Designers Edition Mega Box, took me basically emailing and commenting every day to remind them that us Brits are on a ticking clock as far as getting stuff goes due to Brexit, so hopefully I will have that to review soon.

I am still awaiting delivery of Ember, no sign of it so far.

What I am Cooking

Just some Sausages this morning, they were burnt.

What I am Spending

I bought a new t-shirt from Genki Gear that I quite like, but that’s it.
