Christmas this year had been planned very differently, but Boris changed out plans by saying we could only mix for one day.
Originally we had planned to go to Paul and Mary’s after we had a Christmas dinner together, but because of the changes, we did it very differently.
Me and Lindsay went to Paul and Mary’s for Christmas dinner, and Megan went to her parents.
After dinner we played a couple of games if Fluxx and then came to ours for a picky tea and so Paul and Mary could meet Lord Barrington.
We eventually had our Christmas dinner on the Sunday, but we have decided that next year we scrap the whole thing and start again, and come up with a meal that is different from what me and Lindsay have done the past few years.
I was very happy with my gifts, I got a few nice hobby things and a box insert for Codenames and Codenames Pictures.
It was a weird Christmas, not what I hoped for but, next year should be better.
What I Am Modelling
Not a huge amount, I started out by getting the main colours for the Death Korps of Krieg Death Riders done, but that took a silly long time to do.
But once that was done they were finished fairly quickly.
I was also working on Hrothgorn’s Mantrappers on the side too, and Hrothgorn himself is mostly done.
So what’s on my painting queue going forward into the last week of 2020.
- Zone Mortalis Terrain
- Hogthorns Mantrappers
- Blood Ravens Intercessors with Assault Bolt Rifles x 10
- Escher Gang x 10
- Stormcast Eternals Vanguard-Palladors x 6 & Knight Azyros
- Blood Ravens Bladeguard Vetrens x 3, Bladeguard Ancient, Captain and Lieutenant
- Sons of Horus Destroyers x 10
- T’au Empire Y’vahra & Technical Drones x 2
- Morgoks Krushas & Morgwaeth’s Blade-Coven
- Blood Ravens Terminator Chaplain, Indomitus Chaplain, Judicator & Terminator Librarian
What I Am Reading
I then decided to read the three Heresy short stories published during the Black Library Advent, starting with The Serpent’s Dance by Mike Brooks, which was a rather good book, a kind of proto-Inquisitor story.
I then moved onto Embers of Extinction by Brandon Easton, which was ok but not amazing.
This was followed by The Lighting Hall by Graham McNeil which was amazing, I love House Taranis and this was a great look at how they got from where they were in Mechanicum, to where they ended up.
And to finish off that nights reading, I read The Dead Hours by David Guymer, which was good, and I kinda get the sense it’s a setup for another story.
I have now started on The Rose in Anger by Danie Ware.
What I Am Playing
I got around to uploading the video of my last play of BioShock 2z
As mentioned on Christmas Day, I had two games of Fluxx, one of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the other of Fairy Tale.
I also got in a few games of Among Us on Boxing Day.
What I Am Backing
Nowt right now!
What I Am Cooking
As mentioned earlier, me and Megan made what would have been our Christmas dinner, but a fair few things went wrong sadly.
