So I went to the UK Games Expo this past weekend, which was amazing.
I worked with the Asmodee demo team, and I was responsible for demoing Carcassonne, which was loads of fun.
It was great to get back to a con again after 18 months without them.
It was much smaller than normal and a little more subdued, but that’s kind of understandable in the circumstances.
So yeah happy as hell and cannot wait for the 2022 event.
Oh and of course we did get a little haul!
What I Am Modelling
A slow week due to going away for the UK Games Expo.

I did do some painting and went for some easy wins, starting with the Ur-Ghuls for Blackstone Fortress.
Followed by some Necron Lychguard.
And finally some Bladegheist Revenants for the Nighthaunt.
