I have been a little sick this weekend, everything I have eaten, I have thrown up, which is never a good thing, but I am feeling on the mend now.

On Friday me and Megan attended our first Nineteen Day Feast in a few years, and it was nice to be around fellow Bahá’ís again after so long. We said some wonderful prayers and then chatted together and it was lovely. I won’t leave it so long next time.

On Thursday I fly out to Dublin for OctoCon and I am really looking forward to it, I have downloaded the event program and have picked out what I want to attend and it’s should be really cool.

Trying to give myself a wide range of panels ranging from hard science to horror to comics, with a couple of kaffeeklatschs as well.
And as usual when I am at a con I will do my best to keep people updated as to how it’s going.

I worry about my pain levels whilst there, and I obviously hope my brain doesn’t melt and I have a forgetful day, but all I can do is hope, because there are no guarantees with my health.

What I am Modelling

I took my time with these but I finished up my third Breacher Squad, and they are equipped with two Graviton Guns, a Vexilla and Nuncio-Vox.

This means I have all of the troops for my breacher list done, now I just need to dig out the 2011 Event Only Boarding Marine I have somewhere in the studio that I intend to use as my Praetor for the list and that’s all the infantry done. I also have to finish up the transports, I have two Land Raider Proteus for them, one which is built and primed, the other was in its packet until Sunday and is now built and waiting to be primed.

I also painted up the Legion Moritat, which is armed with a Volkite Serpenta and a Plasma Pistol. Sadly in a couple of places the primer went on a little thick which lost a little detail, so that’s bad, but it’s a great model and I loved painting him, now I just want another five destroyers to add to the five I already have, who can then accompany him.

I have now started work on three individual models, the first two being the Store Anniversary Primaris Captain with Plasma Pistol and Power Fist, and the Imperial Space Marine from last year, both of whom are joining my Blood Ravens.

And the third is Grand Master Voldus from the Triumvirate of the Primarch set. Now I don’t have a Grey Knights army, but, I am considering getting a small force of them to accompany my Millitarium Tempestus force, and that depends on how I find painting this model.

Anyway those three models have had their first colour put on and have had a wash, which is now drying.

What I am Reading

I finished listening to The Crimson King by Graham McNeil, which has helped solidify the story in my mind, I struggled to read it because my head was in a lot of pain when I was trying to do so.

I have been reading through The Emperor Expects by Gav Thrope and so far I am really enjoying it, best book in The Beast Arises series so far. I am really enjoying the politics and infighting amongst the Imperium, there had been relatively little action in the book, but that’s not exactly a bad thing.

What I am Playing

We managed to play a game of Unspeakable Words Deluxe, I came last, but it was fun. I tried to stick to low scoring words to try and slowly build up points, but somehow I kept rolling too low, and very quickly was down to a single sanity pawn.
I am not usually a big fan of word games, but I really enjoyed this one and can’t wait to play it again.

What I am Backing

I am not currently backing anything, but I did back The Networks: Executives where I backed for the base game, On The Air and the Executives expansion.

I have been after the game for a while, ever since I missed out on it at the UK Games Expo in 2016, but every time it’s available I have no money, and when I have money, it’s out of print.

What I am Cooking

I haven’t been up to cooking this week, so it’s been quite a while now since I last cooked and next time I am due to cook I am away in Dublin, so will figure out what to cook when I get back.

What I am Spending

This week I managed to acquire the Triumvirate of the Imperium, most for Cawl to add to my Adeptus Mechanicum army, especially as I do run a Mars army. Greyfax will serve my Inquisition nicely, but I am not sure about Saint Celestine. Guess I will wait and see if we ever get new Sisters of Battle.

I also picked up the Open War Cards for Age of Sigmar, I meant to pick them up when I got the Generals Handbook but my budget was too tight at the time.

I bought Lorgar: Bearer of the Word by Gav Thorpe as an audiobook and as an ePub. Normally I don’t mention my book purchases here, but I have been looking forward to this book so much it seemed only right to mention it.
