Ok so this week I have really been working at getting back on tack and it’s mostly working.
We may have discovered a reason why I am just so ugh at the minute, a blood test revealed that my iron is in the toilet.
This means I am starting an intensive three month course of iron supplements and have to give a bunch of blood samples and other stuff to try and figure out the issue.
Douggie is as ever being a charmer and I love the photo of him I have used for this post, he is just so bloody cute!
More PC Stuff
Megan’s PC is mostly complete now, we put it in a new case, a Corsair 220T RGB Airflow, in white, and it looks really nice.
The only other thing we wish to do to it, is add a Corsair H60i RGB Pro XT to cool her CPU and some sort of heat sink for her SSD.
Possibly add a Corsair Commander Pro as well to manage all the fans.
She is going to get a capture card in the near future, I am adding an Elgato HD60 Pro to my setup, arrives tomorrow, and in time it’s going to take over console capture from my 4K60 Pro so a CamLink Pro can take the place of that.
The 4K60 Pro will then find it’s way into Megan’s rig and that will be hers basically complete.
I have also grabbed her a dock and charger for the Nintendo Switch so she can use it on the monitor at her desk.
So now my attention turns to building a NAS, the basis for its first iteration will be a Dell Optiplex 760, an ancient computer, but one which will do the job initially until a system that is tailored to the job better can be procured.
I have already obtained a cheap SATA 128GB SSD to run as it’s boot drive for FreeNAS and will be adding a couple of large HDDs (hopefully a round 6TB each) to run in RAID as they initial storage solution.
What I Am Modelling
I started off with some Dominion of Sigmar statues from Mortal Realms, both with a slightly different finish to indicate that they were added to the city of Esasa.
I also painted up some Grimghast Reapers for the Nighthaunt along with the 500th Store anniversary model, Garkor the Bladeghast Revenant.
I then I started work on some Crypt Flayers for my Flesh-Eater Courts.
I then had a building spree as I need to get a bunch of stuff built before I could move on.
I have my next 20 projects built apart from a squad of Krieg Infantry and some Crypt Ghouls.
I also had another crack at 3D Printing which went so so, but I have had some excellent advice on how to make it better.
So what’s coming up next for me then?
- Zone Mortalis Terrain
- Niki’s Death Korps of Krieg
- Stormcast Eternals Judicators with Boltstorm Crossbows x 10
- Necron Night Scythe
- Blackstone Fortress Beastmen x 6
- Sylas Beastbane, Leena Stormspire, Astreia Solbright & Berek the Indomitable
- Necron Lychguard with Warscythes x 5
- Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Squad x 10
- Stormcast Eternals Vindictors x 10
- Legio Custodes Pallas Grav-Attack x 2
What I Am Reading
I am now about halfway through Target Kree, which is pretty good thus far if a bit fighty.
I also finished the audiobook of Mortis which was very good as the prose version was.
What Video Games Am I Playing
I decided to split the What Am I Playing section up, to try and force me to play more tabletop games and get more focused on my video games.
So I am going to start streaming games again, The Witcher is going to feature a little bit but I have decided to work through a list, which you can see below.
- Bioshock Infinite
- Assassins Creed
- Assassins Creed 2
- Horizon Zero Dawn
So I will start streaming Bioshock Infinite as of Tuesday.
What Tabletop Games Am I Playing
Sadly none 🙁
What Am I Creating
The stream upgrade video is almost done and will be published this week!
What Am I Backing
I completed the backer kit for Isle of Cats.
And I am backing AB Con, because it’s something I want to see grow and become successful.
Also backing the Assassins Creed Orlog game, because it looks really cool!
What I Am Cooking
I wash supposed to help Megan cook dirty rice, however we had to do an emergency application to renew her Blue Badge so I did that whilst she cooked.
