Just as the title says, I am trying to be better with breakfast, because I am usually awful at the most important meal of the day.
So I have been trying to have something warm for the meal, whilst I am struggling to kick this winter cold, that has stuck around since Christmas.
Most days I am having knock off Ready Brek, because porridge is really good for me, and this is really easy to make.
We are keeping in some frozen sausages so the odd sausage breakfast is happening.
So far this year I have been ok, other than a morning in which breakfast was custard doughnuts, but I was feeling super crap.
Other options are bagels, set honey on toast and how can we forget about beans on toast!
What I Am Modelling
I started the new year with an Apothecary Biologis for my Blood Ravens.
Followed by the first lot of Hobgrot Slittaz from Stormbringer
After which I painted some Sternguard Veterans for the Blood Ravens
Along with a Phobos Lieutenant, which completed all the models from Leviathan for the Space Marines.
And then it was the last unit for Shadows Over Hammerhal, some Bloodreavers!
And I also painted this Rhino for my Sisters of Battle which completes that Combat Patrol!
I decided to crack on with the Dark Angels Chaplain, just cause I wanted him done
And because I need him for a Battle Report, here is the Phobos Librarian for the Ultramarines!
So whats up next?
- Termagants x 20 & Rippers x 2
- Gutrippas x 10
- Fungoid Cave Shaman
- Arch-Revenant & Ylthari’s Guardians
- Space Wolves Suppressors x 3
- Screamer Killer
- Stabbas x 40
- Ork Warbikers x 3
- Knight Judicator
- Khagra’s Ravagers
What I Am Reading
I have been listening to Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Wings of Fury by Brittney Morris, and I finished that, not a bad story at all, and I cannot wait to play the game!
I have been listening to Steel Tread by Andy Clark, which has been a fun story, but the accents are wrong 🙁
And to continue the Doctor Who Monthly Adventures by Big Finish I am now listening to Project: Lazarus by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright.
And I have been reading The Tower of Nerek by David Guymer, which is ok so far, moving along very nicely,
What Tabletop Games I Am Playing
I have been playing a bit of D&D with Lindsay and Megan, using the Dungeon and Dragons Adventurer magazine

What Video Games I Am Playing
I started playing Stray on New Years Day and I managed to finish it and it was a really good game, and I was not prepared for that ending emotionally.
I then started on Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, I have never played any of the first 6 games in the series as they were never released in Europe when I was a nipper, and even then they were on Nintendo consoles, which weren’t that common in the UK.
And I managed to complete the game in about 16 hours, but missed out a few achievements thanks to a missing 3 treasure chests!
I justr finished playing Rise of the Tomb Raider, great game and great story and worked so well on the Steam Deck!
I returned to Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, its a great game and I want to finish it, then play it again!!!
What I Am Creating
The first Warhammer 40k Combat Patrol Battle Report has been published, this one was between the Blood Ravens Space Marines Chapter and the Necrons of the Sautekh Dynasty.
We also got the final episode of Edge of Empire of 2023 out (I know)!
What I Am Cooking
We are brining back the tradition of having breakfast together on a Sunday morning, and I cooked the first one, which was croissants with ham, cheese and egg!
What I Am Spending
I bought a few little games for my Steam Deck from a Fanatical bundle, these were:-
- Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix
- Blacksad: Under the Skin
- Ancient Enemy
- Regency Solitaire
Also it was Humble Choice, which bagged me:-
- Marvel’s Midnight Suns
- Two Point Campus (Donated to Lindsay as I already had it)
- Aragami 2
- Red Lantern
- Hell Pie
- Twin Mirror (Donated to Lindsay as I already had it)
And from the Steam winter sale, I bought Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order
I have gotten a new headset, but not by buying it, my friend gave me a broken headset and said it was mine if I could fix it, turned out the dongle was borked, so after asking Logitech if I can buy replacement, they told me it was still in warranty and replaced the whole thing, which my friend was cool with as theirs had already been replaced.
And for Battle Report reasons, I now have a Dark Angels Combat Patrol box!
And in the Games-At-Hart reverse auction sale I bought Ticket to Ride Berlin and Ticket to Ride Poland cause I am a big fan of Ticket to Ride!
