So after an unintended hiatus, “What’s new, you Herculean demonstration of Manliness?” I hear you cry, and multiple remindings off Kib…
Yes, that’s a delicious pun. And no, it’s not mine. I am somewhat jealous.
On the 13th Kib, Arthur and I went to Grim up Nerf 8 in Farsley* for some foam darty goodness. So after a long while driving, we arrived at the Mormon Church. It’s ok, Arthur didn’t burst into flames or require permission to enter the premises or anything.
We were greeted with an 8 year old or two entering the building. Ah. Oh well, we soldiered on and went to get checked in and sign a declaration of “if I be gets hurted I not sue” and found some other adults to hang around with. We were 3 of the 4 unaccompanied adults of the day, but there were a fair few other people that should probably know better so we didn’t feel out of place. The age split was really quite good. 20 or so little’uns and 10 or so adults. Or more accurately 6 adults and 4 or 5 grown men that should probably know better.
Well, continuing the theme of things I would buy if I had the money (I don’t).
I’m browsing the interwebs this lunchtime and Lo! Behold what Amazon wants to sell me:
Even better given that I’m of to Grim up Nerf 8 tomorrow, Sadly it wouldn’t arrive in time, else I’d be seriously tempted. That and the brightly coloured guns sort of defeat the point…unless I paint them…
Life update – Went to Manchester Comic Con no the 30th July weekend, and Preston last Saturday as Free hugs Jayne. Actually got recognised on Preston, which was nice.
But more on that story later.
So , dear readers, you may well be wondering what ol’ Twibby has been up to these past few months. Well I can, without much of a doubt, tell you: not effing much.
I got the piano tuned! So… I can not play a tuned piano
I Work got a 3d printer, so prototype models can be built quicker. This opens up the possibility for using it for some scenery ideas… Like a drop pod I spied a while back and thought I could make a bit better. Continue reading “Hey, Stranger”
The country decided that chopping off its nose would teach its face a lesson about how to smell.
Another unelected person becomes PM (but the mainstream media doesn’t moan about it this time for some reason, anyone would think that certain party donors own the media…)
Turns out the brexit campaign was full of lies. Who knew? Oh wait, those of us with more than two brain cells to rub together
Manchester Comic Con finally announces more guests. Most of which are COMPLETE nobodies and TWO are from storage hunters. WTFDTHTDWA* geeky?
The weather is wet. Everyone complains. Then the weather dries up and tries to melt Britain. Everyone complains. Just as planned.
I’m now doing Preston comic Con to make up for Manchester somewhat seeming…
shit somewhat lack lustre.
I’m going to both Cons as Jayne, with Kibby going as wash, my costume is 90% complete. Just need to make a free hugs (in my bunk) sign, for obvious reasons.
A nerf rapidstrike is being used for Vera.
I went for a little fall and have completely destroyed the tendons in my right ankle. Consequently can’t walk that far or fast…
Jayne will now have a crutch, and a limp.
I am now playing Stardew Valley, and it’s a nice un-manic game a bity like Harvest Moon
Robot Wars is back on! Razor…was poorly driven.
However, the biggest news is…I now play Magic. Curse you Kibby!
I will return.
*What The Fuck Does That Have To Do With Anything (which is an acronym that I’m sure I’ll get use out of)
Ok, so this is a cheat…but I’ll be blogging again soooooooon
The events that you have heard described as “the Horus Heresy” happened 10,000 years ago, but were important in shaping the mighty and all-conquering Imperium that you fight for today.
This was a glorious age, where humanity’s right to rulership of the galaxy was secured, not just over the xenos, but also above the Dark Powers of Chaos.
As with any great events from history, there are a lot of rumours and conspiracies surrounding the events of this age. We are here, as always, to tell you the truth of what happened, and dispel the myths.
Myth #1: Horus was a charismatic leader
Any spark of nobility that the Warmaster once possessed quickly became corrupted by his treachery, as is ever the case. By the end of Horus’s disastrous war, many of his forces despised him as much as the glorious Emperor upon whom they had turned…

I’m not dead I swear. Still here, Still grumpy.
Today’s thought:I’m not fat, my body is just efficient at storing calories.
I’m liking The Regimental Standard. Required reading for all loyal servants of The Emperor
Greetings, loyal Guardsmen of the Imperium.
As you are likely aware from your recent relocation orders, many of you will soon find yourselves posted to the Cadian sector.
Congratulations! You will find yourselves on the brink of the Eye. No other area of Imperial space offers so many opportunities for glory.
During this prestigious posting, you might find yourself confronted with traitor Space Marines. Do not be alarmed. These so-called Chaos Space Marines are naught but poor reflections of their loyal counterparts – not even a match for a well-trained Guardsman such as yourself.
For those of you on your first tour, your attention is required below. The attached target acquisition guide will enable you to tell the difference between a glorious warrior of the Emperor’s Adeptus Astartes and a wretched traitor. Firing upon the wrong target will result in summary punishment.
As a Guardsman stationed in the Cadian war…
