Blog on hold

 Due to life being a pain in the butt I'm looking at my hobby options, one of which is selling off my entire collection. I have way too much stuff that hasn't been used in years and I have trouble even finding space in my new flat for even my finished stuff.

Add to that insecurity, physical pain, a ridiculous amount of stress and with a war on our doorstep my interest for the hobby is 0 right now. 

Cu in a few months. Years. I dunno.

Spammers are back :(

 As you may or may not have noticed, the spammers are back. I've put the Blog back on moderation to stop the flood of Gambling spam. I'm tired, I'm beat, and I can't really use this kind of shit right now.

As the new flat is still lacking in a lot of stuff I have not been able to do anything hobby wise. Heck, almost all of my hobby stuff is still at the house, so when I have the energy I need to go there, sort out stuff, and arrange it to be carted over.

But not right now, my energy levels are in the single digits, my lungs are hurting and I need to get tested again as some of the help I had last week tested positive for Covid so there is that.

At least the flat is not leaking anymore, and the girls are doing ok-ish. Silver lining....

Tumbling Dice that roll in slow motion

 Last weekend till the move to the appartment, and after 45 days my Tumbling Dice order arrived and mail from Jack :) Like Christmas and Easter in one day. :P

Brexit opinions aside, getting stuff from the UK is back to 1980's levels of postal service. Granted, holidays, and I hear horror stories about Customs, but still, this is ridiculous in this day and age. Oh well, at least I've planned this project and was waiting for these to arrive, so I can continue work on Desert Spitfires. 

I'm pretty much knackerd though, Lung Covid isn't doing me any favors, and I'm worn out for getting everything (well, most) sorted for the flat, and I still have no idea when I can get all my hobby stuff shipped over.

Next week I'll just sit on a sofa watching time pass and excercise in between those sessions.

Glass recycling container

 Glasscontainer from a unknown maker (came in a 2nd hand lot) with bottles from Meng and Miniart. Nice bit of cover or a objective (I think I played Fallout too much collecting glass), and fun to paint.

Double Silo

 Finished these 2, they came incomplete in a box of H0 scale seconds, I glued them to a Warhammer 40mm base and used some spare stuff to spruce them up a bit. They will work fine for almost anything, 15mm, 20mm, 28mm and fit all the timeframes I game in (well, build for anyway), even Stargrave!.

I'll be moving soon

 The seperation is now on paper as I lucked out and was given a small flat in this lovely old building. 

It is small, a 1 bedroom appartment and my kids will be here 1-2 nights and a few afternoons each week, and the storage space is not suitable for hobby stuff, so I've taken the decision to sell 99% of my unmade kits as they are a high volume and good return product so I have cash for a ridge freezer, stove and a TV for the kids. All to be arranged in the next 2 weeks.

After that I will see what I can still do hobby wise, it is all a bit rushed all of a sudden.

The hatch

 What to do with a loose part of 40K scenery you got in a bits bag? Add scrap foam and a bit of MDF and I've got myself the entrance to a shelter, a different hab zone, a sludge tank, zombie spawn point, God knows?
