A Trip To Warhammer World

This past Thursday and Friday, myself and Megan made a trip to Warhammer World, whilst Lindsay went to work at her office behind it.

On a Thursday we settled in Bugmans Bar and played a few board games.

We started off with Combat Arena, which Megan convincingly won, I mean I didn’t stand a chance in it.

The we played Lost Patrol, switching sides between games, but needless to say the Scouts won neither game!

We then had lunch, but instead of playing Underworlds as planned we left and did the Hall of Minis which is always great, but the reason we did it early was because of an idiot making rape jokes on the table next to ours.

Sadly he was with a rather well know person in the hobby with a significant following so I am not naming him because I don’t need the blow back, but it’s sad to see that someone like that turns out to be an arse.

Anyway we had a great time in the hall of minis and then we finished off the day with a few games of Combat Cards back in Bugmans.

On Friday we had planned to play a 2000 point game of Death Guard vs Blood Angels, but Megan got a migraine so we couldn’t continue past turn two.

And thus we ended up spending the rest of the day in Bugmans.

Quite upset by that as I had been looking forward to this game for months, but she can’t help it.

We do plan to try playing the game again at Battle Bunker on Wednesday however.

What I am Modelling

I had a bit of a productive run before I headed off the Warhammer World, specifically I finished the last two characters from Combat Arena, Daedalosus and Aradia Madellan.

I also got my Army of the Dead for Middle Earth painted up, but the scheme was super simple, it was primed in Grey Seer, washed with Hexwraith Flame, metal was picked out with Coelia Greenshade and then a dry brush of Gauss Blaster Green.

But it works and I am rather happy with how they look.

Building wise I built the first of my Javelin Attack Speeders, which is so far a rather nice model to work with.

I have started work on some Custodes and hope to have these finished tomorrow.

What I am Reading

I started the week by reading the short story Down Amongst The Dead Men by Steve Lyons, which was ok, but I didn’t think that there was much payoff for the protagonist and the ending felt disconnected from the rest of the story.

I then read Left for Dead by Steve Lyons which was pretty good, an interesting look at the mind of a Death Korpsman, and I followed this up with The Strong Among Us, which was actually really enjoyable and a good look at how neither side in the 40k universe could be considered good guys.

And in my excitement about the Adepta Sororitas I am reading some stories about them, and I started off with Whispers by Alec Worley, which is really good and then I am about halfway through The Flesh Tithe by Miles A Drake and that’s so far pretty good, between these and a novel I read the other week, I may end up ordering some Necron Flayed Ones to paint.

What I am Playing

On Tuesday night we played a game of Mysterium at Megan’s parents, I was the ghost and sadly we lost, because I am rubbish at giving good clues.

What I am Backing

Nowt right now, but I will he backing Car Wars Sixth Editon in some form.

What I am Cooking

Again nowt, I simply am not capable right now 🙁

What I am Spending

I made one big purchase, the Sisters of Battle box, I managed to get my copy at 9:58 on Saturday morning, needless to say I am very happy with this.
