This past week and a bit I have been quite unwell with Covid-19. I first fell ill a week ago Sunday and it since developed into mild pneumonia.

It was a horrible cough and my fever was only slight and only for a very short period, but my lungs have taken a beating and I am now on antibiotics. The doctor said under normal circumstances that I would be admitted to hospital, but that’s the last place they want to send me right now.

So I am at home being looked after by Megan and Lindsay, the CPAP machine helps a lot and they moved a TV and Sky Q mini box into mine and Megan’s bedroom so that I can watch TV in bed, because sitting up is really hard.

I understand now why I am supposed to be shielded, and annoyingly because without testing me they can’t be sure it’s Covid-19, I still have to do the whole 12 weeks.

I really don’t want anyone I love getting this, it really did a number on Megan with her asthma, Lindsay was mostly better in a couple of days, but I dread to think what would happen if this ended up in Geoff or my nana.

Anyway guys, stay safe!

What I Am Modelling

I did get some painting done, specifically the Age of Sigmar and Warcry terrain.

I started with a few test pieces, specifically the bell tower and a few bits of small pieces from the Warcry core box.

Then I finished off the rest of the scatter terrain and two of the core box ruins.

Then I finished off the ruined city and the statues form the two other sets of terrain, as well as the first bit of the Stormvault terrain.

Then I finished the Defiled Ruins buildings and the columns for the Shattered Stormvault.

And finally I painted the two Stormvaults.

I have been slowly working my way through a few bits of Death Korps of Krieg for Niki and hope to have those finished tomorrow.

My current painting plan looks like this.

  1. Death Korps of Krieg Special Weapons Grenadiers x 4, Death Riders Ride Master, Quartermaster and Retinue
  2. Myrmourn Banshees x 12 & Tomb Banshee
  3. Blood Ravens Bikes x 3 and Attack Bike with Multi-Melta
  4. Death Korps of Krieg Command Squad Special Weapons Men x 10
  5. Chainrasp Horde x 40
  6. Blood Warriors x 5 & Mighty Lord of Khorne
  7. Canoness Veridyan
  8. Death Korps of Krieg Command Squad Special Weapons Men x 10
  9. Untamed Beasts x 10
  10. Tech Priest Manipulus x 2
