As with most years recently, other than 2023, I am going to paint this weekend for 24 hours,this time to try and paint a Drukhari Combat Patrol in 24 hours!
I am aiming to raise £100 for the Willow Foundation, a charity that’s very very close to my heart.
I am going to be painting this weekend from 10pm on Friday night to 10pm Saturday night, so it would be great if you could drop by and hang out, and if you believe in the cause, drop a few quid in.
The Willow Foundation is an amazing charity that does special days for very ill young people, and made my friend Lees last days very happy, and his family and friends continue to raise money for the charity with LeeStock, an amazing festival in Suffolk.
But let me let the Willow Foundation tell their story in their own words.
At Willow we believe in quality of life and quality of time. Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days. This year we hope to fulfil 1,400 Special Days – a day to anticipate, to share and to remember when happy memories really do count. Sadly for some, it’s a last chance to fulfil a dream with the people that really matter. Thankfully for many more their Special Day is an important opportunity to put much-needed normality back into living.
What I Am Modelling

What I Am Reading
I am still reading Sisters of Sorcery by Marsheila Rockwell, but plan to get that finished in the next day or so.
I finished listening to The Helwinter Gate by Chris Wraight, got to admit the trilogy started off rough, but was absolutely phenomenal by the end, I hope to hear more from the pack in the future!
What Tabletop Games I Am Playing
I played a game of Horus Heresy on Friday, and weirdly I won!
It was against Russell’s Alpha Legion, and to be honest, I think taking Fafnir Rann and Sigismund in the same list may be a bit overkill!
And on Saturday I played a game of Blood Bowl for the league with my Skaven vs Shambling Undead, and the result
I took a lot of injuries in the game, like 4 players got taken out of the match in the end!
At one point I had only one players on the field!
What Video Games I Am Playing
Mostly The Witcher 3, I finished Hearts of Stone in it and am now working on Blood and Wine.
What I Am Creating
The latest episode of Edge of Empire has landed, both in audio and on YouTube!
What I Am Winning
Won a prize on Twitter, a new Western Digital 1TB M.2 NVME SSD, along with a Genshin Impact mousemat and a muscular bunny who looks a bit like my bunny Angron, Eater of Cables!
What I Am Backing
Still backing the GameFound project for the Firefly: The Game 10th Anniversary Edition, with the Veteran Pilots pledge level.
I am also backing the Jon Hodgson Backgrounds Book campaign, but undecided if I want to go with the Sci-Fi book or the original book, very torn on that one!
What I Am Spending
Avengers was a bargain on Steam and I really want to play the single player campaign, so I picked that up, alongside 80s Overdrive, Garbage, F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin and F.E.A.R 3 and Necromunda: Underhive Wars.
I did buy some extra Termagants to bulk out some existing units to bring them up to 20 gribbly units!
And of course I picked up Leviathan from Gamers-at-Hart on Saturday!
