We had @wobin over for #WarhammerQuest and a barbecue today!
The Warhammer Quest journey type was "Scavenge" so we could get some gear and currency to level up, it was a similar kind of deal to the others where the map is pre-made, but oh my god I don't think I've EVER seen as poor rolling as @wobin had today. At one point he spent all four of his activation dice making attacks without hitting a single thing, and that was rolling the equivalent of a 3+. 😫 I think he made one single attack successfully, and ended up getting wailed upon by a Kosargi Night Guard which mean he had three grevious wound counters and so had to rely on one activation dice and whatever spare Destiny dice we had left. In the previous game we'd upgraded his character with a piece of equipment that let him attempt to recover wounds on a 4+ instead of a 5+, and literally every single role he made for this he failed. We had @yayKM roll two of them, and she made one success and failed the other.
Thankfully, nobody ended up dying and we did actually get a good stash of stuff and have some good upgrades for the next game, but oh man.
First job of the long weekend was a VERY overdue mowing of the lawn. It was so long that the bin was completely full from the clippings in the back yard and so I didn't even bother doing the front. Also mowed/whippersnipped the horrendous mess of weeds that's at the side of the house where the hot water system and air conditioning compressor are, where we never go.
I started an "Outdoor Walk" workout on my Apple Watch and when I finished it had registered about 1750 active kilojoules after an hour and a half. For comparison my 45 minute workouts on the elliptical are typically around 2000 active kilojoules, so that was a decent effort. ::collapses in a heap::
There we go, the first half of my Breachers are done and fully varnished! I'm such a fan of that Nihilakh Oxide paint for the verdigris effect on the armour, it looks SO good.
I've got another seven miniatures to go (a full squad is only twelve miniatures but I'm going to be painting all three gunner variants so I can swap them out depending on the mission) and I'm going to ATTEMPT to get them all batched painted in the one go. Usually my limit is five, so this might end up being split up into two lots, but it'd be good to get them smashed out.
New lounge! 🎉
The thing I'm MOST looking forward to is being able to sit on it for an extended period of time without getting a sore back. Which is very convenient timing since Starfield has just come out, and next month also has Forza Motorsport and Cities: Skylines II launching as well. 😁
Tonight was Magic at @[email protected]'s! It was Commander format which I'm not the _most_ fond of, but the first deck I played was a Zombie deck which had quite a few cards I was familiar with from the Innistrad block that my own (non-Commander) Zombie deck comes from, and I smashed it. 😁 ZOMBIES FOR DAYS. (It helped that I had an amazing starting hand.)
Second game was a win from @[email protected], and third was our other friend so it was nice and even!
We're getting a new lounge delivered tomorrow (the old one is eight years old and has gone completely saggy because it was a comparatively cheap one) so this afternoon we moved the old lounge out to under the patio to make space for the new one, and MAN does everything echo in here now, christ!
