Welcome to 2022, the year I turn 40 🙁
Well we did not do much for the celebration, we had Paul and Mary over, played some games and watched Jools Holland.
Resolutions wise, I published an article the other day, but beyond modelling I will be streaming twice weekly and will maintain that as best I can.
And I also plan to play 60 board games this year and read 35 books!
If you are daft enough to want to watch me, I will be streaming the following times.
- Monday 8pm to 12 Midnight (GMT) – Painting
- Thursday 8pm to 12 Midnight (GMT) – Video Games, starting with Assassins Creed
Another live streamed thing is in the works and may start this week!
What I Am Modelling
Most of the week was taken up building models, and I have gotten myself quite far ahead of where I wanted to be.
I have built my Corpse Grinder Christ’s, Fire Warriors, Pathfinders, Breachers and a Crisis Suit Team for the T’au, everything from Kill Team Octarius, the Imperial Navy stuff from Wings of Vengeance, my remaining AdMech as well as a few other bits and bobs.
I did start painting on New Years Day an Ork Weirdboy to see in 2022.
And then painted the Templates from Kill Team.
This was followed by a Primaris Lieutenant with Storm Shield.
And some Endless Spells for Age of Sigmar.
So what’s up next week?
- Flesh Hounds x 10 & Karanak
- Confederacy on Independent Systems Droiddekkas x 4
- Age of Sigmar Endless Spells
- Death Guard Caestus Assault Ram
- Adeptus Custodes Vertus Praetors x 3 & Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike
- Skitarii Rangers x 10
- General Grievous
- Ork Flash Gitz x 5
- Sicarian Ruststalkers x 5
- T’au Pathfinders x 10
What I Am Reading
I finished a the Gates of Thelgrim and a review should be published tomorrow.
I have now started at long last on Warhawk and I really enjoying the book, it’s very well crafted thus far.
What Video Games Am I Playing
Mostly just Halo: Infinite where I can, usually one or two games of the multiplayer a night.
Also played Forza Horizon 5 for the first time in a few weeks.
Also been enjoying playing a bit of Donut County which is quite enjoyable and stress relieving.
What Tabletop Games Am I Playing
On New Years Eve we played some board games, a couple of games of Star Trek: The Next Generation Fluxx, won by Lindsay and Megan, then a game of Colt Super Express which I won, a game of Maki Stack which was won by the team of Lindsay, Paul & Mary.
And finally a game of The Sock Game which the team of me and Megan won
Today Megan and Lindsay’s friend Chrissy came round and we played a game of Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu which we won on the very last turn!
What I Am Backing
CoraQuest arrived, and I am really looking forward to playing it!
What I Am Buying
I bought myself Beat Saber for the Quest 2, to give me some more fitness games to try out in VR.
I also grabbed Driver: Parallel Lines, I actually did some play testing in this game, but never got round to buying it as I was too busy with San Andreas at the time, and it was £1.68, so why not!
I also caved and bought Star Trek: Away Team and I was gifted a copy of Valheim.
In the New Years sale on the Microsoft store, I did pick up some films Top Gun, Rocketman and A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood.
