Finished reading: The Devastation of Baal by Guy Haley 📚
Finally got round to finishing some test models for my new Tyranids army. Not all of them are finished, but I think I’ve narrowed down what scheme I want to do.
My first Wordle in 2 🥳
Wordle 386 2/6
Decided to try Asda’s Plant Based Choc Chip Cookies, they’re very nice. I think they might become my go-to cookie. Modern vegan food continues to impress me, they’re far better than any of the vegan cookies my friend got me to try years ago.
Nice view from the musicians pit at St Agatha’s RC Church
My first Civ6 domination victory. I got lucky with a pair of early wars, leaving me an entire continent. The Mapuche’s loyalty ticks are fun, it allowed me to take a few cities and let the rest fall to me through loyalty issues. They’re a fun civ to play, I would recommend them.
New blog post: Creating a Micro.blog Theme + Tailwind
Creating my own theme proved more challenging than I’d have liked, so hopefully this helps others.
Thanks to @rknightuk for keeping me sane while working this out!
I’ve finally won my first Civ6 game. I was going for a religious victory but somehow ended up with a diplomatic victory. And it was on prince difficulty! (I was worried I’d have to lower it). Shout out to PotatoMcWhiskey’s videos, they taught me a lot and re-ignited my interest.
I finished reading Caves of Ice by Sandy Mitchell 📚
It’s hard to talk about this book without spoiling it. I enjoyed it a lot and ended up reading it surprisingly quickly. I’m very tempted to start a “small” Imperial Guard collection for Ciaphas Cain and friends.
I finished reading For the Emperor by Sandy Mitchell 📚
A great entry into the world of Warhammer books, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It conveys the grim darkness of the universe while being comical and approachable. I highly recommend it. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series
Spent some time down at Farlington Marshes and got some great photos
The Little Egret is easily some of my favourite photos I’ve taken.
Some Glaivewraith Stalkers from my tempest of souls box
Painted up some test models after a long break after my first attempt, and decided to try a few different things
Throwback to the first model I ever painted a few years ago. Many things I could’ve done better, but I don’t think it’s too bad for a first go
