It’s been a while since I last checked in (almost two whole months) and that’s mainly because I haven’t felt like blogging much at all. Part of this is from the complete absence of many regulars over at the House of Paincakes, which is a bit of a spirit dampener. Coupled with that is that I don’t feel that most of my hobbying is worth talking about all that much.
Nevertheless, here I am. Alive.ish. Aliveish. Not dead and certainly not undead and feeling solidly whelmed with uni and work. Whelmed in this instant is being used incorrectly as a ‘between’ over and underwhelmed. The root word means something pretty different from what people would think.
In the past…time…period…thing, I’ve been moderately productive and this calls for a picture dump!
Mysterious effigy, Translucent sorrows and poltergiest, then some forests (yub yub) and finally a teddy which are from the Neverborn faction (besides the forests)
At this stage I tempted to pack away any non-Wyrd miniatures and just focus on painting up their sweet, sweet plastic goodness to reduce the risk of flitting about from one project to the next. Gaming is still a thing, which is awesome save for this month where a bunch of family birthdays and such prevented a lot of games (and two tournaments). Hopefully next month will be better, we’ll see.
Outside of the hobby, I’ve been reading books like a fiend! The Thrawn trilogy and X-wing series were read voraciously as was the latest in Brandon Sanderson’s mistborn novels. Additionally I bought the other cosmere books and read those non-stop. Then there’s the not-quite-fantasy fiction in The Martian and Ready Player One, which is a thrilling read and depicts a pretty plausible future. Lastly, and at 24 standard Earth years of age, I finally read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The humour and dry wit makes for a great read.
Anyhow, til next time
