The wonderful Lord Barrington has been with us about two months now and he is slowly but surely coming around to us, the girls more than than me.
Not long after he arrived we noticed the eye on which he had his operation, was weeping, well it turned out he had an ulcer in his eye, and it was a nasty one.
So for four weeks, he has had to have eye drops four times a day, which he absolutely hated with a passion. Eventually he allowed just one of us to administer them, but very grumpily.
He has now been off them since Friday as his eye is fully healed, with just a small amount of scarring.
He is now starting to warm up to us again, but the eyedrops have set the relationship back a bit. He hides a lot when we enter the room, and often sleeps under the bed, but there are lots of instances where he is showing signs of trusting us.
The other night he briefly slept on the bed whilst Megan was in the bed, and he loves to play, if his favourite toy is anywhere near him, he goes mental for it.
He is however scared witless of Bonnie, she terrifies him a lot, he is very intimidated around her, if she is at the top of the stairs, he won’t come down for foods.
It’s hard work, but I am sure in time we will have a brilliant relationship.
What I Am Modelling
I started the week by finishing of my Plague Drones of Nurgle. These will serve in my Maggotkin of Nurgle for Age of Sigmar, Chais Daemons for 40k and Darmons of the Ruinstorm in Heresy.
I then started work on some Stormcast Eternals, the Vanguard-Palladors, Knight-Azyros and just because I was working on that style, Ironsouls Condemnors.
I got the Knight-Azyros finished first.
I then finished Ironsouls Condemnors from Champions of the Dreadfane.
Deciding to basically eliminate one entry from the painting queue, I hit up Lady Harrows Mournflight, also from Champions of the Dreadfane.
This left me working on the Vanguard-Palladors for the Stormcast Eternals, which were painted quite slowly, but they are very enjoyable.
But this completes my Stormcast Eternals for now, and I will only be adding to them from Mortal Realms right now, although I do want a Lord Ordinator.

What I Am Reading
I also earlier this week posted a review of Head of Mimir.
I have now started on The Sword of Surtur by CL Werner, and I am gonna give a good shot at getting it finished tonight.
I have also started on the audio book of Nexus by Thomas Parrott.
What I Am Playing
I played a couple of hours of The Witcher III earlier in the week which will uploaded in the morning.
On Wednesday I played a bit of Star Trek Adventures with Graham, Chris and Dave which was a lot of fun as we prepared the ship for a forthcoming battle.
On Saturday we played a quick game of Pandemic: Hot Zone North America, which we lost in brutal fashion as outbreaks in San Francisco and Seattle caused us to run out of red cubes!
And on Sunday myself, Graham, Chris and Dave played a few games on Star Wars: Squadrons.
What I Am Backing
We have backed CoraQuest on Kickstarter, this looks like a lot of fun, and the video just makes you fall in love with the idea of it!
What I Am Cooking
I cooked Dirty Rice on Saturday, it’s a bit of a staple of mine and it’s bloody delicious and filled with veg.
