Throne's Blood... it is a fine cast!

I sure hope I know what I am doing... spending a sum that could get me a copy of Diablo III on an angry old man on a chair... anyway because of all the horror stories surrounding the suppose "fail cast" and the cost involved, I double check with Hobby forge's Alvin before I made the order -- that he will do the replacement request for me if the chair arrived in unsatisfactory condition.

As you can see that didn't happen, part of me is happy as things turned out the way it should be, part of me is sad because I could have gotten a spare chair, which might be very handy indeed, credits to Alvin for his patience on my pestering. Now comes the horror part: building and painting the chair.

Torn between Armies - Part 1

I remembered a time when my space marines collection consists of 10 humble AOTBR marines and 5 terminators, together with their captain and dreadnought they were the only member of my chapter. Searching for their identity and place in the 40k universe they quickly settled under the banner of Purgation Lords and the chapter grew... second squad tactical marines, first rhino, second rhino, third tactical squad, third rhino. Then landraider, which became landraiders, land speeder, land speeder squadron then land speeder squadrons.

In time my chapter grew and grew as of now I have one third of the first company on stand by with their multiple landraiders. Three full squads of tactical marines ( which hardly see any action these days, but that is another story...) with their rides, full spectrum devastators, land speeder squadrons and a school of dreadnoughts with all known useful configurations, and last but not least a dozen of raw recruits. 

Then heroes emerges from my chapter to lead them, first a captain, then a librarian, a chaplain, then more got until then point I almost have a Doppelgänger for every named character in Codex: SM, Sgt Chronos being one of exception not cloned into my chapter, yet.

Having such a huge arsenal of war machines, a hall full of heroes and gangs of battle brothers at your disposal is certainly fun to begin with, but then eventually I noticed another way of collecting army which might be more interesting and the apparent pros and cons of 2 main method of army collection.

My Trip to Warp Space Game

Pics from Warp Space Game

After hearing this place from a friend. I finally paid a visit to Warp Space Game shop at Taman Desa. Over there i also meet my old friend Lexis who also keen on checking out the place. So we both meet the shop owner David. He told us that he just recently open the place and already have his own group of regulars.

So he gave us a tour of the place. It was quite a small place with roughly 2-3 tables. He stocks up with 40K, fantasy and card games. However one thing that interest me is that he sells Army Painter colour primer. This is interesting as in future i can easily spray my models to the intended colour than to have to do a white/black prime then base coat.

After that me and friend had a game at their GW table. It was a draw but although he was out of the fight for so long he could still put a nasty fight. So after one game David inform that he wanted to close so we pack up and leave.

Here are couple of pics i took during the visit.

Mordrak and Ghost Knights

Finally... no more proxy for Mordrak's gang of ghost knights... until the extra pops in, that is. Special thanks for Redeye donating the "extra" GKTs, for myself I might never get the to the point of painting them in ethereal form and forever locking them in the roll of being ghosts.

As of now, they can thump their chest and claims their stealth cover safe, WYSIWYG for the win!

First Day Of Warhammer 40K kid

An explanation to whoever not familiar with internet memes. This is originally call first day internet kid. His picture is associate with jokes of a naive person when he approach the internet. He easily believe on anything that said on the internet and easily falling for virus or scams.

So only different here is a funny approach of 1st timer players for 40K!
