We have been here for a few months, and I must admit, it’s not actually that bad.
People said the neighbourhood was rough, but in all honesty, other than bonfire night, it’s been alright, but hey, I am from the west end of Newcastle so, rough is a relative term.
The sea air, as weird as it sounds, has helped, I need my inhaler a lot less and my lungs feel a lot less heavy, and there is something about waking up to a sea fret, that’s almost magical.
There are some issues here, our kitchen is so so small it’s difficult to cook in, and the wi-fi on the router is so bad we are going to invest in a mesh system.
Whilst I miss aspects of the old house, what I do like is having my own space, but I am struggling to keep it tidy.
I think in the long run the move is positive, but I do need to make sure the doctors are issuing my repeat prescriptions when needed as this far they are doing awful at that.
What I Am Modelling
I started with a trio of Kataphron Breachers for my Adeptus Mechanicus
Started off with a Praetor in Terminator Armour for my Ultramarines.
And followed up with a Techpriest Enginseer to join my Death Korps of Krieg.
After that I concentrated on the officers for the Imperial Fists and painted up a couple of Praetors first, the Legion Specific in Artificer Armour, and the Praetor Tribune.
And a Praetor in Cataprachtii Armour and Chaplin.
Then it was the Vindicare Assassin from my Warhammer + Subscription.
And then I finished a final pair of Kataphron Breachers
After which I completed an Imperial Fists Legion Champion and Master of Signals.
So what’s coming up next week?

What I Am Reading
I finished up Zachareth by Robbie MacNivan, and you can read a review of that here.
And I started Sanguinius: The Great Angel by Chris Wraight
Continuing my listening to the Doctor Who Monthly Series, I listened to The Spectre of Lanyon Moor and Winter for the Adept.
What Tabletop Games I Am Playing
Wasn’t sure where to put this but my Board Game Geek Secret Santa arrived, and it’s the incredible Arkham Horror!
What Video Games I Am Playing
Darktide hit GamePass, so I got that installed on my PC.
I also decided to play my first game on the PlayStation 5, specifically God of War, which is proving rather fun so far.
What I Am Backing
The Car Wars CARnage project
I completed my Backerkit survey for the TT Combat Paints and Washes project and picked my two paints, went for Supernova Chrome and PHR Bone.
What I Am Winning
A while back I won a competition run by Durham Prints Store for anything in their Etsy shop.
So I opted for this personalised slate signed with “Kill, Maim, Burn” on it, the warcry of the World Eaters, cause I thought it would be funny!
It’s taken a few weeks but it’s finally arrived and I am super happy with it!
What I Am Spending
I need to get back to streaming properly again, and I decided to spend my sponsorship money on a new toy, an Elgato Stream Deck Pedal, which is gonna sit on my floor and be useful for things like muting the microphone, which I think the fellas on Edge of Empire will appreciate!
