Well, I turned 40 last week, and it was not what I expected!

After Marys passing, I had stated that I wanted a quiet birthday, the only thing I wanted to do, was get a Big Mac, that’s it, nothing else.

But the polycule convinced me to make a bigger deal, we planned awesome meals that I love, a trip to Warhammer World, and watching Hamilton.

However, none of it happened, Lindsay got Covid on the Sunday night and all of the plans were cancelled.

To be honest, after having people making me build it up into something great, it turned out to be a huge disappointment.

I don’t know, it’s just really got me down, that the week was such a bust, and Lindsay has no more time off until Christmas, so we can’t even reschedule it to later on in the year, because Paul works weekends, and Megan can’t handle the crowds at Warhammer World on the weekend.

I did get some nice gifts; we did watch Lord of the Rings in 4k (Extended Editions of course), but it still felt like a big disappointing week.

Sorry for the moan, but I couldn’t even get a prearranged game at the club as I had planned, and Lindsay was mostly asleep, no not even any board games got played.

I guess my decision to make a bigger deal of 42 is more sensible.

What I Am Modelling

I finished a squad of Terminators for my Imperial Fists first.

And then another of the same!

I then started work on a trio of Dreadnoughts, two Contemptors and a Leviathan.

I finished a Contemptor first.

Followed by the Leviathan.

I then finished up a second Contemptor, this time the resin legion specific one.

What I Am Reading

Making my way through Cthonia’s Reckoning which is not as good as I had hoped so far, but its ok.

I listened to both Mortarion – The Pale King and Rogal Dorn – The Emperor’s Crusader as audiobooks.

I have also started listening to the Doctor Who Monthly Adventures and just finished The Marian Conspiracy.

I am currently listening to The Great Clans of Rokugan Volume 1.

What I Am Creating

I have gotten back on the wagon of making Battle Reports!

More will follow!!!

What I Am Spending

Got myself a couple of treats for my birthday.

First was SuperHot VR for my Meta Quest 2, looking forward to playing that.

And secondly I got Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection for the PS5.

I also scored a very cheap copy of Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 from eBay.

And a few more controller holders for the wall, so that’s pretty much what I want on the wall up for now.

So up there at the moment are:-

  • Xbox Duke
  • Xbox Series X/S
  • Mega Drive
  • Mega Drive 6 Button
  • Saturn
  • NES
  • SNES
  • N64 Tribute
  • GameCube
  • Wavebird
  • Switch Pro
  • Neo Geo CD
  • Stadia
  • Playstation 1
  • Playstation 3 Dual Shock 3
  • Playstation 5 Dual Sense

In the future I hope to add a PC Engine and CD32 controller as well as putting my SN30.
