My Baby Brothers Wedding

This weekend we took a trip to Cornwall, to see my baby brother Daniel get married.

He and Chelsea make a wonderful couple, they share two amazing little girls and seeing them make that lifelong commitment was very special.

Daniel has grown into a wonderfully well rounded young man, and is a fantastic father, I could not be more proud of who he has become.

Chelsea is an absolutely darling woman and such a good match for Daniel, I honestly cannot say enough good things about this wonderful couple.

We stayed at their house, where we took up the job of cat sitting Boo and Sully as well as Ki Ki and Nacho, Chelsea’s mums dogs.

So that was fun and cost saving! But it did mean we could take an extra day to stay in Cornwall, see some sights and spend a bit of time with the girls.

It’s a long distance between us, on the way down we stayed over in Cheltenham, and on the way back we stayed in Nottingham so I could make a brief visit to Warhammer World.

We had breakfast there and then made the journey back to Durham.

What I Am Modelling

I only had a couple of days before I went off to Cornwall.

But I did manage to get painted up a trio of Heavy Weapons Teams for my Death Korps of Krieg, all with Heavy Bolters.

I then finished off a unit of Necron Warriors, Scarabs and Hasmoteph the Resplendent for my Sautekh Dynasty.

And finally I managed to get a Knight Warden for House Taranis finished up, that really just needed it’s transfers as I had been working on it for a while.

So what will I be starting on when I return home?

  2. Ork Bikes x 5
  3. Dacian Anvil & Vindictor

  5. Confederacy of Independent Systems B1 Battledroids

  7. Flesh Hounds x 10 & Karanak

What I Am Reading

Still working on Triptych by Jaleigh Johnson, but I am almost finished with it now.

What Video Games Am I Playing

Not much, mostly just the odd game of Halo: The Master Chief Collection Multiplayer to get the points for the Microsoft Rewards scheme.

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

In Warhammer World today, me and Lindsay played a game of Combat Arena, Lindsay beat me very easily!

What I Am Creating

The latest Warhammer Imperium battle reports is out, this time for issue 8.

And I also got the next episode of Edge of Empire uploaded.

What I Am Backing

Nowt right now, but I have been told that Orlog is on its way.

And the Avatar Legends campaign is going to have delayed shipping due to a cardboard and paper shortage.

What I Am Cooking

Not a sausage!

What I Am Spending

I grabbed a can of Leadbelcher spray and a Warhammer World Exclusive Armoured Troll for Blood Bowl on my visit to Warhammer World on Monday.

I also grabbed Star Trek: Elite Force 2 from GOG, and a couple of Iron Harvest DLC, Rusviet Revolution and Operation Eagle on Steam.

A Week of Nowt

This week has been well a lot of nowt.

I got a fair few things painted, but not much else, I wanted to play some more Bioshock Infinite but the plans to do that fell apart.

I must do better next week.

In the meantime, I also must stop arguing with poorly educated idiots who love to spread nonsense about the Covid vaccine.

I mean trust me, no one wants Covid, but the fact that people don’t get the concept of herd immunity achieved through vaccination just astounds me.

And then you get comments like this…

What I Am Modelling

I started off by finishing the two units of Vindictors from Dominion.

And then I moved onto the Volkite weaponry for my Adeptus Titanicus titans, so lots of opportunity to shout CHOOOOOOM!!!

Then I finished off the scenery from Mortal Realms by winging the Gryph-Hound Statues.

After that I started on Kurdoss Valentian and Lady Olynder. I got Kurdoss finished first.

Quickly followed by Lady Olynder.

And this completes my Nighthaunt, apart from a Black Coach and the limited edition Guardian of Souls, I have everything for the army that they make.

I might in the future add the Black Coach but I am not entirely sure when this will be.

I also painted up a Knight Castellan for my House Taranis Imperial Knights.

I did a lot of it on Stream Friday night and then finished most of the rest on Saturday morning.

I am a big fan of Imperial Knights, but I need to add a few more to my force, got a Warden in the box, but want another Crusader, some Helverins and then perhaps some Cerastus Knights.

I am currently working on the Triarch Praetorians and the Blackstone Fortress Traitor Guardsmen, Commissar and Ogryn.

So what’s coming up next week then?

  1. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  2. Legio Custodes Pallas Grav-Attack x 2
  3. Blackstone Fortress Traitor Guardsmen x 21, Commissar and Ogryn
  4. Stormcast Eternals Praetors x 3, Knight-Vexillor & Vindictor
  5. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Ghouls x 20 & Crypt
  6. Legio Custodes Agamatus Jetbike x 3
  7. Mechanicum Secutarii Hoplites x 10 & Termite
  8. Necron Triarch Praetorians x 5
  9. Stormcast Eternals Annihilators x3, Lord Imperatant & Gryph Hound
  10. Blitzkrieg German HQ & MG34 MMG Team

What I Am Reading

I finished The Serpent and the Dead by Anna Stephens, and I loved it, will have a full review up in a few days.

I listened to Tomb of the Necron by Cavan Scott, the last of the current series of Warped Galaxies books for Warhammer Adventures.

It was very enjoyable and I hope they pick up the series again and give us further adventures of the trio and their allies.

What Video Games Am I Playing

Played a little Forza Horizon 4, a bit of Halo 2 Anniversary.

Tried out The Evil Within, but I didn’t really enjoy it.

I did try out XCloud gaming, playing some Forza Horizon 4 on my iPhone over a 5G signal whilst visiting my sister in law.

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

On Sunday we had a game of Deep Space Nine Fluxx which I won, which is a very rare thing!

What I Am Creating

I managed to get the next episode of Edge of Empire published, just need to record another one!

What Am I Backing

I completed the pledge managers for Orlog and The Isle of Cats: Don’t Forget The Kittens.

And I am currently backing Avatar Legends at the Otter-Penguin level, considered going up to Polar Bear Dog, but the girls aren’t joining in, so I can’t justify the extra $25

What I Am Cooking

Yet another week of noting.
