October is on my mind a lot, why, because I turn 40, I will officially be old.
And I want to commemorate the occasion, it I can decide what to do. I have a few ideas, but I can’t decide on what to do.
I first considered a LAN party, but I suspect that won’t work cause my house ain’t that big downstairs.
Then I considered hiring a hall and just having some games of Warhammer, but then Lindsay and Megan wouldn’t take part.
Or just throwing another geeks disco as I did for my 30th.
This requires planning and I am just not sure what to do, I really want to do something fun to mark it with my friends.
If Battle Bunker were still around I would have hired that out, but alas right now it’s not.
Maybe I should enquire at the community centre next door to my house.
What I Am Modelling
I started the week by painting a squad of Orruk Brutes alongside Bawla and Burk.
The main give brutes got finished first on Friday night.
And then I finished Bawla & Burke on Saturday.
After that I turned my attention to two sets of STC Ryza-Patten Ruins I had lying about, these are needed for Company of Legends.
I have two tables of terrain which are mostly Sector Mechanicum, and they lack line of sight blocking terrain. So adding a set of STC Ryza-Pattern Ruins to each of them, along with a Haemotrope Reactor each will, I hope, resolve this.
I painted them in a very simple scheme, just kinda assumed the Mechanicum painted everything red and went from there.
I then painted a Soulblight Gravelords Mortis Engine which I got with Mortal Realms.
I also managed at long last to get the air brush out and get the base coats on the T’au I have outstanding, a few Blood Angels and Fafnir Rann.
I am currently working on some floor tiles for Zone Mortalis.
So what am I working on for next week?
T’au Pathfinders & Darkstrider
Ork Kommandos Kill Team x 12
Corpse Grinder Cult x 15
Ultramarines Intercessor Squad x 5
Blood Bowl Referees x 2
T’au Crisis Suit Team x 3
Blood Angels Assault Intercessors x 8, Primaris Lieutenant & Librarian in Phobos Armour
Skitarii Rangers x 10
Orruk Weirdnob Shaman
Death Korps of Krieg Medusa x 2
What Video Games Am I Playing
I uploaded my ad hoc Tuesday stream of Horizon Zero Dawn.
Mostly I have been concentrating of Far Cry 2 in an effort to finish it, which I managed on Saturday evening.
And I finished Unpacking on Saturday night as well.
I started on Far Cry 3 on Saturday night and I have to say, it’s a marked improvement on its predecessor.
What Tabletop Games Am I Playing
Not a sausage 🙁
What I Am Creating
The next battle report for Imperium has been published, this is for issue 16.
Issue 17 and 18 have both been filmed and edited and await their publication date on Wednesday and Saturday respectively.
What I Am Backing
No live projects, but the dividers for the Griefcase from Gloomier arrived at last!
I exchanged my points for £140 worth of Microsoft vouchers and put another £4.99 towards it.
And it arrived on Wednesday!
To fit it’s charging dock on my desk, I had to sacrifice my original Stream Deck, there was just no longer any room on the desk.
So I have now payed it forward and sent it to my friend Jessica.
A more practical purchase for me and Megan was a new mattress, we got it from Nectar as we had a 45% off voucher, but after signing up to their website, I have been sent a silly number of vouchers for 45% so I highly doubt anyone pays that price.
On the recommendation of RandomFrankP on his Cool Tech Under $50 I grabbed this Tripod/Selfie stick to use with my ZV1 for better vlogging ability, cause holding it at arms length is crap.
I also got a couple of cheap RGB Zigbee bulbs for the kitchen, as this is where I film my battle reports, I need a better white light and these fit the bill perfectly.
This means the existing smart bulbs there are moving to the downstairs loo and the en-suite to await the motion sensors becoming available for Hue again.
I also picked up some floor tiles for Zone Mortalis and a few paints this week.
