Bumpy Couple of Weeks

This is a bumper two week update due to being generally unwell this past week.

Part of that is probably mental, the car is in the garage, so I am stuck at home, can’t even get to club for a game.

Hopefully the car will be back with us this week, but the repair got delayed by the big storm.

And the bunny is getting better, but it looks like the head tilt will be permanent, which means he will likely need anti-dizziness medication for life plus eye drops.

Tidying the PC

My PC was a mess, after reinstalling Windows I needed to desperately clean the desk and make it tidier and tackle the cable management, cause that was horrendous.

But a couple of days of pottering around, and it feels and looks a lot better, I still need to replace the desk in the long term and the secondary monitor is starting to show signs of dying.

What I Am Modelling

Not a lot at all this week!

I painted Obi-Wan Kenobi of the Grand Army of the Republic for Star Wars Legion, so yeah Hello There!

I then worked on two units of Skorpekh Destroyers and a trio of Necron Warriors.

After this I finished off my Blackstone Fortress models by painting the Archivist and the Ambull with its Borewyrm Infestations.

I then painted something that I can’t quite talk about yet, but it was a lot of fun to do and I am really looking forward to showing it off eventually.

I did print this Christmas decoration for our geeky tree, it was supposed to have an Enterprise D in the middle, but I ended up taking it out due to having to make it smaller to fit on my printer.


So what’s up next then?

  1. Adeptus Custodes Wardens x 5
  2. Death Korps of Krieg Heavy Bolter Team x 3
  3. Ork Flash Gitz x 5
  4. Grand Army of the Republic BARC Speeder
  5. Necron Warriors x 10 & Lord Hasmoteph the Resplendent
  6. Imperial Knight Warden
  7. Ork Bikes x 3
  8. Dacian Anvil
  9. Constantine Valdor
  10. Confederacy of Independent Systems B1 Battle

What Video Games Am I Playing

I have mostly been playing Halo 5: Guardians, so I can get caught up on the story before Halo Infinite hits.

I also played a bit of eFootball PES 2021 to get a GamePass quest completed, and boy do I still dislike football games, other than Football Manager.

I went back to Battle Sister, and damn that’s a hard game, the motion sickness for VR is a lot easier to handle now.

I enabled AirLink for the Quest, and untethering myself has absolutely helped a lot.

I tried Battlefield 2042, but I had to return it cause frankly it was a really poor game and just not worth the money.

Frankly Halo Infinite is a lot better and thus I played some more of that, even installing it on my PC.

To add variety to life, I played some Bioshock Infinite, and a bit of the original Far Cry!

Despite owning 5 of the 6 main series games, I have never actually completed a Far Cry before.

The first game stopped working on my PC at the time once I got the level 3, it just refused to load.

And I never picked it up again, but I have now and even made it possible to use an Xbox Controller which is making it a lot more fun.

It’s weird how different it is from the rest of the series.

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

On Saturday, Paul and Mary came over so we played some games. We started with The Sock Game, me and Mary were on a team together and won that.

Then they played Pandemic whilst I napped, I then rejoined them and we played Ticket to Ride: Amsterdam, followed by Unspeakable Words: Deluxe Edition.

On Sunday we played a couple of games of the amazing Just One, followed by a game of Ticket to Ride 10th Anniversary which Paul won!

What I Am Creating

Not much but I did attempt to test the streaming setup and of course despite the microphone allegedly working in OBS, it in reality wasn’t 🙁

What I Am Spending

More than I intend this week to be honest.

I bought Kainan’s Reapers for Warhammer Underworlds, which is kind of dangerous because I really like the look of the Bonereapers as an army.

Followed by having to grab a couple of TP-Link Kasa plugs to replace the Nooie plugs that won’t work with Home Assistant or IFTTT.

And I bought these back in the summer, but they only just turned up now.

I did buy a couple of bits of DLC this week for video games. The Aquatics Species Pack for Stellaris, the T’au, Assault Pack and Lord of Skulls for Warhammer 40,000 Gladius.

The Black Friday Steam sale happened, so I picked up Portal and Portal 2 very cheap, never played them before and figured why not try them, cost less than £3 for both of them.

And as I no longer have a DVD drive in my PC I picked up Far Cry and Far Cry 2, as I quite fancy playing them, alongside a dirt cheap copy of Splinter Cell, cause my original Xbox disk is scratched to hell

Oh and I saw a 4k Blu Ray of Star Trek Beyond for £5 on Amazon, so I bought that!

Resolutions Update – September 2021

Well this month was a little bit of a slow start, but I am now up to 1121 models painted.

This includes finishing off the terrain to make a 2×2 Zone Mortalis board for Horus Heresy and Necromunda.

Paint 2000 Points of Necrons for Warhammer 40,000 – Complete

This month I painted the Canoptek Wraiths to complete this resolution.

I also added 6 Warriors and a Hexmark Destroyer to the army.

Paint 2000 Points of Flesh-Eater Courts for Warhammer Age of Sigmar – 77.25% Complete

This month I got painted some Crypt Flayers, a Crypt Haunter Courtier and a Crypt Infernal Courtier.

This leaves me with just an Abhorrent Ghoul King on a Royal Terrorgheist to paint for this resolution.

Bring My Mechanicum to 3000 Points for Horus Heresy, Including The Warhound Titan – 63.2% Complete

No progress cause I can’t find the Macrotek Enginseer at all!

Next month I think I may break out and start on the Titan as time is running out!

I did paint a Skitarii Marshal, who will be used a Secutarii Axiarch, just not in this list I think.

Paint Blackstone Fortress And It’s Expansions – 78.78% Complete

I also completed the Plague Marines and Poxwalkers from the No Respite expansion.

Changing Medication

So we think the reason I am feeling crummy, is a change in medication for my diabetes.

To be honest though, I am gonna try and tough it out, this new medication has some real positives, it’s reduced a personal issue which was causing a lot of pain, and it’s got me feeling like I have a healthy relationship with food for the first time in a long time.

The disadvantages are that my tummy has been a bit topsy turvey, and I am having eggy burps.

I have asked the doctor if we can reduce the dose slightly, so I shall see what they say.

What Am I Modeling

I started by finishing off the Necron Canoptek Wraiths, which actually completes the resolution to paint 2000 points of Necrons this year!

The first unit is armed with Transdimensional Beamers.

The second lot have no ranged weapon upgrade at all.

I then painted up three Crypt Flayers, a Crypt Infernal and a Crypt Haunter Courtier, which leaves me with just a Aberrant Ghoul King on a Royal Terrorgheist to paint for this army.

After that I painted a Lord of Virulance for the Death Guard, alongside the Plague Marines and Poxwalkers for Blackstone Fortress.

And I also managed to paint the Skitarii Marshall, who will also serve as a Secutarii Axiarch.

I have these past few days working on some Thousand Sons Terminators & Ahriman, trying out some new techniques.

I have gotten one finished and I am really happy with him.

Hopefully the rest will be finished tomorrow.

I also finally think I have this 3D printing things sorted!


So what’s coming up next week?

  1. Magos Macrotek Enginseer & Sevo-Automata x 4 (if I can find it!)
  2. Thousand Sons Terminators x 5 & Ahriman
  3. Blackstone Fortress Rogue Psykers x 3 & Negavolt Cultists x 6
  4. Stormcast Eternals Judicators x 10
  5. Ork Nobz x 6, Painboy & Warboss
  6. Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Squad x 10
  7. Legio Custodes Caladius Grav-Tank x 2
  8. Blackstone Fortress Spindle Drones x 6 & Guardian Drones x 2
  9. Phase 1 Clone Troopers x 22
  10. Ork Shokjump Dragster

What I Am Reading

Not a sausage actually.

But I did finish listening to the Godblight audiobook, and really enjoyed it, some interesting plot points that the Black Library can build upon.

What Video Games Am I Playing

I played through Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, a game I got for my 8th birthday, leant to my friend Simon and never saw again.

But I played it though emulation on Retroarch, and you can see that video below.

I also completed Halo 3, and I kinda wish that 343 Industries would remaster this game as it looks so much worse than the anniversary version of Halo 2.

And I have just tonight started on Halo 3 ODST, which is a beautiful game.

I also started up a Minecraft realm for my nephews, so they can have their own private area to play after a few nasty incidents in the game.

What Tabletop Games Am I Playing

Tonight I got in a three way game of 40K to start my crusade off.

I am not gonna give any spoilers away as I have made a battle report for it that will be published on Friday.

What I Am Creating

As mentioned above I played through Alex Kidd in Shonobi World and made a video if that, which you can see in that section.

I also published the Battle report for the second game of the Imperium magazine.

What I Am Backing

Still just Rawr! Velociraptor! which at the point of writing this has 2 hours left.

What I Am Cooking

Actually not a thing 🙁

Schedule Sucks Still

Well my schedule is complete balls right now, it’s all over the shop and it’s really doing my head in.

I know I need it to function well, but I am having issues asking for what I need to actually keep to a scheuldule.

Lindsay’s meeting schedule is now going on the family calendar but sharing an office means I can’t do certain stuff when she is in those meetings.

The doctor has offered some great advice for helping with my sleep, which is helping to a degree, but I also need to get the days sorted out.

I dunno, guess I don’t have much else to say really.

What I Am Modelling

I started the week with a the HQ models and the MG34 MMG Team for my Bolt Action early war Germans.

I then painted up the Cultists from the Blackstone Fortress Escalation expansion.

I then began work on a Fire Raptor for the Heresy Death Guard, I have had this model for so long, originally it was intended for the Space Wolves, but plans changed.

I also managed to paint a Hexmark Desyroyer, which I must say, is the nicest model in the new Necron range.

And finally I painted three Necron Warriors that came with Imperium, this is a second set, and I have another still to do.


So what’s up next?

  1. Necron Canoptek Wraiths x 6
  2. Mechanicum Magos Macrotek Enginseer & Servo-Automata x 4
  3. Flesh-Eater Courts Crypt Flayers x 3 & Crypt Infernal Courtier

  8. Stormcast Eternals Judicators x 10
  9. Ork Nobz x 6, Warboss & Painboy
  10. Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Squad x 10

Playing a little bit every day, played a little bit of PUBG, some Flight Simulator and finished Halo 2 Anniversary.

I have now stated on Halo 3 and have made a decent way though it so far.
