My beloved nana, a woman who has been so influential in my life passed away after a long illness last week.
Its left me in a bit of a state even though it was long expected.
She was always there for her grandchildren and anything we could have done for her was never enough.
She lead an interesting life, from her time as an evacuee, an army career, beating the crap out of terrorists (I wish I was joking about that one), time as a social worker and bringing up five children on her own after my grandfather abandoned her.
She was a tough geordie battleaxe and whilst not a perfect woman, she was always there for me when I needed her.
Her funeral is next month and I am just trying to get through until then, but the grief over losing her is kinda hard to deal with.
Nana, I will miss you, and I will make sure to make my tea the way you taught me!
What I Am Modelling
I started the week by painting the Vertus Praetors and a Captain on a Dawneagle Jetbike for my Custodes.
And these mark the last models overall for my Custodes in both 30k and 40k, I currently have no more to paint at all 🙁
After that it was on to some Ork Flashgitz, which were a lot of fun to paint!
I then moved on to paint a unit of Skitarii Rangers for my Adeptus Mechanicus army, which gives me two squads of them overall.
I then painted up some Primaris Space Wolves, a pair of Battle Leaders, a Rune Priest and some Aggressors.
I am now working on some Assault Intercessors for my Blood Ravens.
So what’s coming up next week then?

What I Am Reading
I finished The Rebels of Vanaheim and you can click that link to go to my review.
I also finished Cult of the Spider Queen (Review coming soon) and am now working on Witches Unleased.
What Video Games Am I Playing
I have been playing a bit of Forza Horizon 5.
I started Assassins Creed with a 5 hour stream, and managed to eliminate two of the targets!
You can watch it in YouTube here!
And on Saturday morning, quite early I had an impromptu session cause I missed Thursday with being grief stricken still.
What Tabletop Games Am I Playing
I had a game of Horus Heresy with Graham, and I scored my third win against him ever, by two points, one of which was Slay The Warlord.
Was a very fun game, I suspect that the Death Guard are my favourite Heresy army overall, I just like their grittiness!
What Am I Creating
Well I returned to video game streaming and managed to stream 5 hours of Assassins Creed which you can see above.
I have started a new YouTube series, Wargamer News, you can see the pilot here, and will start regular episodes from this week.
What I Am Backing
Although the Griefcase was missing the dividers, I contacted Atlas Games and they say that they are in the post!
What I Am Spending
I bought myself the PC Building Simulator Humble Bundle, cause it’s a fun game!
I also picked up a new light box after mine died just before Christmas
And I got a paint restock from Element Games, along with dice and cards for my Nurgle Blood Bowl team!
