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?

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.

Mary & Paul’s Wedding

This weekend we took a trip to North Wales to see two of our polycule members, Paul and Mary get married.

On our way to Wales we stopped in Manchester, where we visited Fanboy 3, Travelling Man and Warhammer, whilst the girls called into their favourite tea shop, Bird and Blend.

We then had lunch at Home Sweet Home, as recommended by David Salisbury of Fanboy 3 fame, and I had a beautiful chicken in a basket with an amazing gravy.

Paul loves trains, potentially in a slightly worrying amount. And unsurprisingly they got married at a heritage railway, but all the way over in Wales.

It was a lovely day and full of lots of fun, the food was quite nice too and I had a lovely bit of Welsh lamb.

We stayed quite a bit away so couldn’t stay the whole night but it was so much fun. it was Steampunk themed so I dressed up as a steampunk engineer.

They even cut the cake with a sword.

The rest of our trip we stayed at a cottage in Bethesda which whilst a bit dated was nice and comfortable.

On Saturday we out on a trip to Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch, and I murdered any attempt to pronounce the name of the place.

We had a lovely cup of tea in the cafe and I attempted to read welsh words on the menu.

On Sunday we took a drive up to Tryfan and Llyn Bochlwyd and I have to admit that Wales is rather pretty.

On Monday we made our way home via Harrogate, where we stopped off for a break and to stretch our legs.

And now we are almost home, and a Chinese takeaway is the food plan for tonight!

What I Am Painting

Only one thing painted this week due to being away, and that was this Thousand Sons Terminator Squad and Ahriman for Heresy.

What I Am Reading

Plodding on with Dark Avengers: The Patriot List by David Guymer and plan to finish it in the next day or so

What Video Games I Am Playing

Played a bit of Halo 3: ODST which I forgot had such an amazing soundtrack.

I also played a bit more State of Decay 2, and I think this is something I will come back to, I only played it for the GamePass Quest, but found myself really enjoying it.

But I was playing it over cloud gaming on a 3G signal so it was very laggy and a bit rubbish.

What Tabletop Games I Am Playing

We played a fair few games whilst away on holiday in North Wales, starting with Munchkin Steampunk.

This was followed by a couple of games of Codenames Pictures.

And finally on Saturday we played Colt Super Express which was really fun!

On Sunday we started with a game of Catch the Moon, which was won by Megan.

Then before lunch we played a game of Ticket to Ride Japan which Lindsay won.

And before tea we played a game of Calico and this time Megan won.

What I Am Creating

I published a battle report, done differently to my others, this one has focused solely on the games narrative rather than getting fussy about dice roles etc.

It’s very rough but I am headed in the right direction at last.

What I Am Backing

Rawr! Velociraptor! was funded and as we said we backed just for the greatest hits album and I look forward to getting that.

What I Am Cooking

Not a sausage yet again 🙁
