Ok well 2023 is here and I am really hoping it it’s not gonna be the massive bag of dicks that 2020, 2021 and 2022 were, I really want this to be a better year.
I have planned out some resolutions and ideas I want to carry out, which you can see here.
For New Years Eve I spent a couple of hours at Paul’s, but the damn cold/flu has still kicked my arse and I am struggling with spending time out of the house for far too long.
So I returned home and played some The Witcher 3.
New Years Day we went to Megan’s parents and had a roast dinner, but the ill left me barely conscious for most of it.
A Less Ideal Bit
Sadly our street saw a murder this week, and a fella was purposefully run over, we ended up stuck in the house for two days unable to leave as the whole street was a crime scene.
It’s left us all a bit shaken, I mean it’s the last thing you expect, but it is what it is.
What I Am Modelling
I started off by painting the Lord Veritant for the Stormcast Eternals, need to sort out a list for the AoS Weekender for them.
After which I painted the Contemptor Dreadnought, for my Imperial Fists.
I then painted up a pair of apothecaries for the Imperial Fists too!
I then painted up Sigismund to lead my Imperial Fists in the great battles of the Horus Heresy.
And finally I finished up the Land Raider Spartan for the Imperial Fists!
I am currently preparing to work on a squad of Ultramarines Intercessors for my 2023 Resolution army.
So what’s coming up next week?
- Ultramarines Intercessors x 8
- Silver Tower Heroes
- Blood Angels Repulsor
- Templar Brethren x 10
- Hobgrot Slittaz x 20
- Kâhl & Einhyr Champion
- The Crimson Court
- Ultramarines Lieutenants x 8
- Battle Sisters Squad x 10
- UCM Vancouvers x 3
What I Am Reading
And a review of Stars and Stripes by Sean Grisby and Stewart Hotson which you can read here.
I read Age of the Undead by C. L. Werner and that’s was alright, a review will come next week.
I have since started on The Veiled Masters by Tom Pratt and i have read one chapter thus
I did listen to the audio book of Hostile Takeover by David Liss and it was okay, it was fine just not up to the standards of the Aconyte novels.
What Video Games I Am Playing
New Years Eve I started my new play through of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition with the next-gen update.
So far I have logged 4.9 hours.
What I Am Winning
I won a copy of the model railway game, Blocks Tracks Trains, which looks fairly cool.
I won a copy of The Jumping Cookie on PlayStation, so that was cool!
I also won a copy of Wobbledogs on Steam, which is cool.
I also won a copy of The Whisperer, which looks like a cool game.
A copy of Theatre of War was also won!
And for Xbox I won a copy of Silenced: The House.
What I Am Spending
I bought a little tool kit for electronics, specifically for the Nintendo Switch Triwing bit.
Megans stocking had a new shell for a Joycon, in her favourite colour, purple!
So this means in the house we will have a Joycon in the favourite colours of myself (green), Lindsay (pink), Paul (blue) and now Megan!
I also picked up some Command Strips to help me mount a few things on the wall, specifically an extension lead for Megan’s dressing table so she can easily use her hair straightens and hair dryer.
Plus it means at long last we can mount her Hue Light Strip, all 3 meters of it.
On Friday, from a yet to be announced sponsor, a new webcam, the Elgato Facecam, which really has elevated my setup above and beyond what the Logitech C920 did!
Really happy with this bit of kit, it required a bit of work on my set up, but damn it looks good now in OBS
