24 Hour Charity Stream 2021

Last year I did a 24 hour painting stream for The Willow Foundation, which is an amazing cause and one very close to my heart.

We are doing this same this year, but for the Maritime Conservation Society, because, well the podcast loves Manatees!!!

What’s the Challenge

Last year I painted the battle box of Sister of Battle, alone, and it was cool, but I didn’t complete it.

This year, I am joined my Megan, and we are going to paint a tables worth of terrain!

We currently have the following in the box:-

  • Sub-Cloister x 2
  • Storage Fane x 2
  • Engine Shed x 2
  • Thermo-Exchanger Shrine x 2
  • Thermo Pipes x 4
  • Auto-choral Transmitter
  • Munitorium Armoured Container x 3
  • Haemotrope Reactor x 2
  • Galvanic Servohaulers
  • Thermic Plasma Regulators
  • Sanctum Administratus

The plan is that we will have the terrain built and primed and work in two twelve hour shifts for health reasons, since Covid I simply cannot manage a straight 24 hour shift.

We are going to paint the terrain, mostly using this guide from Warhammer TV.

We are starting to build the terrain today, and plan to have it all ready in about a week or so before priming it.

You can donate here if you would like to and we would be eternally grateful!

What I Am Modelling

I started by finishing off my Skorpekh Destroyers, Skorpekh Lord and Plasmacyte, which completed the Indomitus box set for me!

At the same time I also painted a Thermo-Exchanger Shrine for my Zone Mortalis board.

I then started work on the T’au Empire Tidewall Rampart.

I am now working on somme Legio Custodes Venatari.


So what’s coming up for me this week?

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Secutarii Peltast
  3. Legio Custodes Venatari x 3
  4. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Horrors x 3

I then read Luther: First of the Fallen, and that was really good and I will publish a review as soon as I can.

I am now reading Mask of Silver by Rosemary Jones.

What I Am Playing

On Tuesday I played a couple of hours of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and had a few missions that proved difficult to figure out, mostly cause I was silly enough not to see some stairs!

But you can watch that session here!

I continued the play though on Thursday, and you can watch that below.

And here is a play session from yesterday!

What I Am Creating

This is a new section which I will be using to share the content I create and a way of getting me to actually do it!

Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest

I have been provided with an advance copy of the new Marvel Heroines book Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest by Cath Lauria, published by Aconyte Books, so here is the honest review I promised in exchange for the book.

So here is an important disclaimer which is always important to put out there first. I have a casual work contact with Asmodee to demonstrate board games for them in stores and at conventions. Asmodee being the parent company of Aconyte the publisher.

I am going to try my best to not let this cloud my judgement in this review, but I accept that subconsciously it might.

What is Marvel

Look at this point I would bore you with a bit of background to the game/universe, but lets not, you all know the Marvel Universe, if you don’t have you been living under a rock!

The Marvel Heroines series focuses on the female hero’s of the Marvel universe, the first two books in the series, Domino Strays and Rogue Untouched were extremly good, so I was looking forward to this.

The Story

So I think its best to introduce Elsa Bloodstrone first, she is a monster hunting heroine introduced to the Marvel universe by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. She is the daughter of Ulysses Bloodstone and follows in his footsteps of protecting the world from vampires, demons and monsters. Very much a Buffy type character.

She is British, loves her tea and doesn’t take s**t from anyone, and likes to keep people at a distance, but all that changes when a woman turns up on her doorstep claiming to be her half sister who has had her Bloodstone shard stolen, the Bloodstone being what grands Elsa her powers of superhuman strength, healing and endurance.

The core of this story is less so the adventure they are on, but the relationship between Elsa and Mihaela as they travel across thje world, investigating Ulysses old bases of operation to ensure he hasn’t left anymore Bloodstone shards lying around, lest what could happen if they ended up in the hands of evil doers.

We start off being very distrust of Mihaela, who lacks the same strength and attitude as Elsa and its very much an odd couple kind of relationship, with them constantly at each others throats, in more ways than one!

Mihaelas comments about Elsas attitude and recklessness are meet with very witty, sarcastic and snarky comebacks, even in the middle of a battle. Lauria does an excellent job of getting into Elsas head, we slowly get to see more and more about why she prefers to work alone and more about why she doesn’t want her sister in her life.

Conclusion

This book is really really good, and its refreshing to get a good book about one of Marvels lesser known heroes, and I really hope that Lauria is allowed to continue this storyline as the conclusion sets up some cool possibilities.

The backstory for Elsa and Mihaela is explored very well, so if you have never heard about Elsa before, then you will have no issues enjoying this book.

Overall its a fantastic pulpy adventure with cameos by a couple of other heroes on the trek around the world and a rather cool twist that turns everything around very nicely.

This is a brilliant book, full of background, but done in such a way as to not overwhelm and crammed full of comic book style action.

Solid 5 out of 5 stars from me!

The eBook is released on the 4th May and the paperback hits the shelves on 22nd July.


A Week Off

I have had a week off as it were, mostly due to being quite off mentally and dealing with that.

But I intend to post a bit more about it this week, in the meantime, there is no Hobby Studio episode this week 🙁

What I Am Modelling

Last week I finished off with a few bits for Zone Mortalis, which you can see below.

I then moved onto some Aquilion Terminators for my Legio Custodes, two sets, one with the Firepikes to take care of horses.

I then started on the Termite for my Mechanicum, this starts off the next resolution for the year.

Then I took a Chaos Space Marines Sorcerer off the shelf, stripped it in some Biostrip and repainted it up as an Esoterist for my Word Bearers

And then it was a big blob of Crypt Ghouls for my Flesh-Eater Courts.

Whilst working on those I was also working on my 10 Hexwraiths for my Nighthaunt.

I am now working on painting the Skorpekh Destroyers and Plasmacyte for my Necrons. As well as the Skorpekh Lord.


So what’s coming up in the next week then?

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Necrons Skorpekh Destroyers x 3, Plasmacyte & Skorpekh Lord
  3. T’au Tidewall Ranpart
  4. Mechanicum Secutarii Peltast x 10
  5. Legio Custodes Venatari x 3
  6. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Horrors
  7. Necron Immortals with Tesla Carbines x 10
  8. German Heer Hanomag & Panzer IV Ausf D
  9. T’au Broadsides x 3
  10. Legio Custodes Vexillia Carriers x 4

What I Am Reading

Been reading Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest and I am almost finished, so expect a review coming soon!

What I Am Playing

I did play through Minerva’s Den, the standalone DLC campaign for Bioshock 2 this week and a video of that is now on YouTube.

Streaming video games going forward is something I need to figure out, with Lindsay now in the office I need to figure out if and when it’s possible.

On Friday Lindsay had the afternoon off, so we took off to Saltwell Park and played a game of Alhambra Roll & Write, which I came last in!

On Saturday evening, we played a couple of the quick and simple games, Pandemic: Hot Zone – North America and Ticket to Ride: London.

We all lost Pandemic and I came last in Ticket to Ride, despite it being my personal best score in that version of the game!

On Sunday, me and Lindsay also played a game of Ticket to Ride: New York in which she absolutely handed my arse to me!

Today I played some Star Wars: Squadrons and I finished the single player campaign

What I Am Backing

Still backing the Wowstick Drill, and I find myself tempted by the new Redgrass Wet Palette that’s going up next month.

The Dungeon Masters Little Black Book arrived on Sunday via Drive Thru RPG, that was a throughly decent, quick and awesome campaign.

What I Am Cooking

Not much but on Sunday I did make beans on toast for dinner and helped Lindsay make a roast for tea.


ESL – Shove It!!!

I am gonna be frank, it can go take a long walk off a short pier.

It’s just a terrible idea by the rich clubs designed to keep them earning the big bucks and take the lions share of the TV money.

I think it shows that football has strayed too far from the fans and what they want.

Let’s face it, the way things are now, more than ever it feels like a massive stitch up with the big six wanting to ride roughshod over everyone else in the Premier League and their desire to get more money because they are the big stars of the league.

I think it’s time that football and the organisations called their bluff.

Explain the consequences, but enter into no further talks, I strongly suspect that this plan is tactic to get more money from the Champions League. And if they continue on this route, the day after the season ends, expel them from the leagues, and dock them 30 points.

And if they want back in, they start at the very bottom.

I am out sick of the big clubs throwing their weight around and demanding the lions share of the money, trying to dictate the direction of the game, and only seeking to dement their dominant position.

As fans we need to say no to this and stop enabling them.

They want their own league with blackjack and hookers, fine, they can piss off and have it, but they don’t get to play in our league.

I have lots to say on the subject, but, boy am I mad about it and I don’t think Lindsay and Megan would appreciate all the swearing.

Megan’s PC

I managed to pull together the last parts for Megan’s PC this week.

And on Friday I built it, using some bits cast off from mine and some select budget pieces.

The build she has is:-

  • CPU:- Ryzen 5 3400G
  • Motherboard:- ASUS ROG Strix B450-F
  • Memory:- Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3600mhz DDR4
  • SSD:- Crucial P1 1TB
  • PSU:- Scavenged 10 year old EVGA 750w (this will be replaced first)

Not a particularly amazing build, but she wants to run The Sims 4 with it and it should show ok at that.

Future plans for it, will be to add a GPU and a Capture Card.

What I Am Modelling

I started off the week by painting the terrain from Pariah Nexus, which involved a lot, and I mean a lot of drybrushing.

Before finishing off the terrain from Kill Team Arena.

I then started on the Heavy Intercessors and the Captain with Master-Crafted Heavy Bolt Rifle for my Blood Ravens.

But whilst various stages of those were done, I painted the last of the 3D printed terrain that Nikki printed for me.

And I painted the Battlezone Objective Set for 40K, which is going to live in the Vigulus based table I am soon to paint.

On Sunday I got the Heavy Intercessors and Captain finished.

That means everything from Pariah Nexus is painted.

I then painted some bits for Zone Mortalis, a bunch of supply crates, fuel barrels and pipes, but I will show you pictures of those next week.


So what’s coming up for my next week?

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Mechanicum Termite
  3. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Ghouls x 20
  4. Legio Custodes Aquilion Terminators x 6
  5. Hexwraiths x 10
  6. T’au Tidewall Rampart
  7. Skorpekh Destroyers x 3 & Skorpekh Lord
  8. Secutarii Peltast x 10
  9. Custodes Venatari x 3
  10. Word Bearers Esoterist

What I Am Reading

I started on Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest by Cath Lauria.

Enjoying it so far and hope to finish it in the next few days.

What I Am Playing

Not actually played anything this week 🙁

What I am Backing

The second half is my Paranoia pledge for Project Infinite Hole arrived, the R&D Fun Pack.

Still backing the Wowstick drill project.

What I Am Cooking

Not a sausage this week 🙁


Poison River

I have been provided with an advance copy of the new Legend of the Five Rings book Posion River by Josh Reynolds, published by Aconyte Books, so here is the honest review I promised in exchange for the book.

So here is an important disclaimer which is always important to put out there first. I have a casual work contact with Asmodee to demonstrate board games for them in stores and at conventions. Asmodee being the parent company of Aconyte the publisher.

I am also friend with Josh on Facebook, however I am sure for him that’s more about connecting with fans rather than being one of my best buds, that said he is actually a really nice guy.

I am going to try my best to not let that cloud my judgement in this review, but I accept that subconsciously it might.

So let’s crack on with a review then!

What is Legend of the Five Rings

L5R as it’s often known is a fantasy setting for a series of card games and RPGs originally published by AEG, but now taken care of by Fantasy Flight.

It’s set in the empire of Rokugan which is heavily feudal Japan influenced, with a bit of other East Asian influences, like China and Korea thrown in as well.

It’s a fantasy setting with the usual fantasy tropes of goblins and rat men, but also oni and kitsune too.

The Story

Daidoji Shin is a an aristocrat of the Crane clan banished to the City of the Rich Frog, to serve as his clans trade envoy.

He has a reputation as a wastrel and is considered a disappointment to his family, so has essentially been banished to somewhere he can’t do much harm, along with his faithful, but very put upon bodyguard Kasami.

In this story he is called upon by the cities governor to conduct an investigation into the poisoning of some rice, something which could threaten to destroy the fragile peace between the clans who call the city home.

He is only asked to do this because his clan is relatively neutral, but as it turns out, he actually has a talent for investigation, his habits of wide reading and study all manor of mundane things has made him ideal for the job.

And so he throws himself into the mystery, despite the politics and dangers posed by the clans rivalries, shinobi and the criminal underworld he finds himself embroiled in.

Conclusion

Ok so this book is very typical of Josh’s writing, in that it’s engaging and full of world building.

The novel isn’t just about Daidoji Shin but for me the main character was actually the city itself, rich and literally dripping with detail, you get a real sense of a bustling city, that is essentially a tinderbox waiting to catch fire.

The supporting cast get just as much character development as the main protagonists and it really feels like Josh has had a lot of fun developing a city that he can spend years playing with and developing.

I am hoping that’s Fantasy Flight are going to develop the city as a sourcebook for the RPG as I really want to actually play around with it and enjoy some adventures with pirates and smugglers on the docks!

Daidoji Shin is himself a fascinating character, on the surface, spoiled, rich and cares for nowt but his own pleasure, but in actual fact is an intelligent man, very much in the mould of Sherlock Holmes.

The books is utterly wonderful and I am already looking forward to the sequel, which Aconyte have already sent me.

If you want a mystery novel, with snappy dialogue, a rich setting and a cast that you are just desperate to spend more time with, then grab this book.

5 out of 5 Stars

You can buy the paperback and eBook now.


Hoping Lockdown Ends On Schedule

Not much to say other than that, I am really down right now and could do with spending time with friends and family.

I just hope it all goes according to plan.

What I Am Modelling

I spent Tuesday finishing off Horticulous Slimux, a particularly disgusting character, and one that I am rather proud of.

I then moved on to the Heer Infantry Squad for Bolt Action, alongside a Lieutenant and accompanying Riflemen. That’s all the infantry for that army finished now.

After this I moved onto an Onagar Dunecrawler that’s been sitting in a box primed for way way too long.

I then started on some more Necrons, the four Crypteks, two Cryptothralls, five Flayed Ones and a Canoptek Renanimator.

The Cryptothralls were finished first.

Then I knocked out the Flayed Ones.

Followed by a Canoptek Reanimator.

And finally today I finished off the four Crypteks.

I am now working on the Pariah Nexus Terrain.


So what’s on the list going into the week.

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Kill Team Arena & Pariah Nexus Terrain
  3. Blood Ravens Heavy Intercessors & Captain with Master-Crafted Heavy Bolt Rifle
  4. Mechanicum Termite
  5. Battlezone Objectives
  6. Flesh-Eater Crypt Ghouls x 20
  7. Legio Custodes Aquilion Terminators x 6
  8. Hexwraiths x 10
  9. T’au Tidewall Rampart
  10. Necron Skorpekh Destroyers & Skorpekh Lord

What I Am Reading

My review of the The Qubit Zirconium was published yesterday and you can read it here.

I read Blood of the Emperor and finished that, a review will be forthcoming.

And last night I finally finished Poison River and a review of this will also be published very soon.

I have now started on Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest.

What I Am Playing

On Saturday we played Alhambra Roll and Write, and I won, which is a surprise!

On Sunday I played a couple of hours of Star Wars: Squadrons with the lads.

What I Am Backing

Gloomier has successfully funded!

Still backing the Wowstick drill, that’s got another two weeks to run.

And the first shipment Project Infinite Hole arrived, and I am most happy with it, just awaiting the R&D pack now.

What I Am Cooking

On Friday I made a slow cooker Chinese Chicken Curry for tea with chips, it looked awful but tasted amazing!

Sunday morning saw my turn for Together Breakfast, and I made Fried Chicken with Waffles and Maple Syrup.


The Qubit Zirconium

I have been provided with an advance copy of the new Keyforge book The Qubit Zirconium by M. Darusha Wehm, published by Aconyte Books, so here is the honest review I promised in exchange for the book.

So here is an important disclaimer which is always important to put out there first. I have a casual work contact with Asmodee to demonstrate board games for them in stores and at conventions. Asmodee being the parent company of Aconyte the publisher.

I am going to try my best to not let that cloud my judgement in this review, but I accept that subconsciously it might.

What is Keyforge

The Crucible is a giant word larger than the sun, an artificial planet that is constantly under construction by the the Architects.

They gather their materials by transporting them from other planets and worlds, often bringing that worlds inhabitants along for the ride.

The world contains every environment imaginable, from bustling urban sprawls, to deserts, to jungles, to meadows and everything in between.

The Architects communicate through the ethereal Archons who themselves are completely in the dark about the purpose behind the Crucible.

And so they gather bands of followers, to gather Æmber, a psychic substance that can be forged into keys that unlock the vaults if they architects.

Keyforge itself is a unique deck card game, developed by Richard Garfield, the developer best know for Magic: The Gathering and King of Tokyo.

It’s a really good game, you should go check it out, but I am not reviewing the game here, but I will soon.

The Story

The story sees alien detectives, Wibble and Pplimz, a team consisting of a floating fish and a snappy dressed cyborg, look to clear the name of a former client who has been accused of theft.

The case quickly gets complicated, and the pair find themselves embroiled in a race to find a missing gem that potentially has the capability of utilising the power of the architects and endanger everyone on the Crucible.

The story starts off slow as the detectives, who very much have an odd couple vibe going on, with Wibble being a thrill seeking extrovert and Pplimz being a lot more formal and cautious, travel to a crashed Star Alliance ship to do some basic PI work, and they are doing it more out of boredom than anything else, knowing the client is unlikely to be able to pay them.

The story gradually begins to pick up steam as the pair find a lot of dead ends, which have the advantage of introducing us to more aspects of the Keyforge setting, and soon they find out the item their client is accused of stealing could potentially have the power to destroy the Crucible.

The book picks up pace as they travel to other parts of the Crucible desperate to find the Qubit Zirconium, and whilst it lacks any real action, or overt danger, there is a bit of tension as they conduct the investigation.

Conclusion

The book is ponderous, and that’s not necessarily a bad, thing. I think its set out to give a good introducing to the setting, to really explore the world, and to show us the craziness of life on the Crucible.

I really enjoyed the characters, there were some obvious tropes being introduced, the Star Alliance are a thinly veiled Federation after all, and the Martians are the very picture of the little green men we joke about, but again, the card game is very much about taking obvious tropes and twisting them ever so slightly.

I very much enjoyed the story, but the conclusion did fall a bit flat, it just kinda played out and it didn’t really feel that interesting, it just happened, and the urgency of the situation sort of just fizzed out.

A big thing I like was the normalisation of characters introducing their pronouns, something you rarely see, but I can imagine would be vital somewhere like the Crucible, and there was also an acknowledgment that non-binary people exist, and indeed Pplimz is non-binary themselves.

I do want to see more work around this pair, but I would hope the end is a bit more interesting, as I said, it works, but there is little to make you feel any sense of urgency in those closing chapters.

I am gonna give this book 3 out of 5 stars, I would have given it a 4, but then ending just didn’t excite me anywhere near the way the rest of the book did.

The eBook is released on the 13th April and the paperback hits the shelves on 24th June.


Quiet Easter

It’s been a quiet week, I have a few things waiting to come to fruition so I am gonna keep this short and sweet.

I hope you guys had a good Easter.

I published a couple of videos this week, one which was an unboxing and review of the Daylight Conpany Lumi Tasklamp, and a review of Instar Soap+

What I Am Modelling

It’s been a slow and hard week.

I started out by painting the first of my Flesh-Eater Courts, an Abhorant Arch-Regent.

I then picked up the Herlads of Nurgle, but stuff going on in my head really kept me from any painting.

I did build stuff to ensure my next twenty of so projects are ready to paint, and apart from a squad of Peltasts for my Mechanicum, they are all built and primed.

I decided I needed an easy win to get back my mojo, so I painted this Knight of Shrouds for my Nighthaunt.

And then I managed to finish off the Sloppity Bilepiper, Poxbringer and Spoipox Scrrivener for my Nurgle Daemons.


So what’s coming up next for me?

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Adeptus Mechanicum Onagar Dunecrawler
  3. Horticulous Slimux
  4. German Heer Infantry Squad x 10,Lieutenant & Riflemen x 2
  5. Necron Crypteks x 4, Cryptothralls x 2, Flayed Ones x 5 & Canoptek Reanimator
  6. Kill Team Arena & Pariah Nexus Terrain
  7. Blood Ravens Heavy Intercessors x 5 & Captain with Master-Crafted Heavy Bolt Rifle
  8. Mechanicum Termite
  9. Battlezone Objectives
  10. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Ghouls x 20

What I Am Reading

I finished The Qubit Zirconium by M. Darusha Wehm and a review of that should be up tomorrow.

I have now started Blood of the Emperor and am a decent way though that now.

What I Am Playing

Played a bit of Star Wars Squadrons which was a lot of fun.

On Easter Monday, me and the girls played a couple of board games, we started with Pandemic: Hot Zone North America which was a lot of fun and we managed to beat the game nice and convincingly.

Then we played Ticket To London and Megan absolutely whooped mine and Lindsay’s arse!

What I Am Backing

I am still backing Gloomier, the profits I made from crypto mining is paying for that.

And I have also backed the Wowstick drill, I love the screwdriver so the drill should be good for hobby work.
