Good day guys and girls of Hive! Zak Ludick here from Cape Town South Africa. It has been a real struggle to blog consistently like I usually do because I am currently working on a big project in Cape Town Harbour in the dry dock.
When working here you work a 12 hour shift from 7am till 7pm. There is an hour lunch and there is around 2-3 hours dedicated to safety. Because its necessary.
On top of that I am working Monday to Sunday and now it is Wednesday again already. This coming weekend, I shall be working again!
Have a look at some of the sights that you get to see there:
A long way down to the dry dock bottom. Yes that is a crane!
The range of blocks you see there are called chocks and the ship I am standing on is standing on a bunch of those.
Beyond the wall there is another vessel in Dry dock and then yet another wall, keeping the sea out.
Check where these guys are standing! That is 7 storeys down should they fall past that railing!
Trying to give you an idea of how big all of this is without leaning out over the side of the ship here...
However, work ended early on the Sunday!
Look how happy I am! Just for a half day off, I suddenly had a little WEEKEND where I thought I would get none at all!
I saw on a whatsapp group that there was a battle going on at the Sword and Board hobby shop so I popped in there for a quick cooldrink and a visit to see the battle!
This is Leagues of Votann vs the Chaos Space Marines. I was very interested to watch this battle since I have just started collecting Votann myself.
Here we see an Einhyr Champion being charged by Lucius the Eternal! They killed one another.
A big squad of Chaos Terminators, ready to rip that Land Fortress to pieces!
Uthar the Destined is surrounded by foes!
There are the players, busy packing away and tallying up their scores.
There is now a lot of new Votann miniatures on the shelves! I will need to blog really hard in order to afford that. lol
I will have to do a lot of 40k posts!
