Last nite was real productive - I painted up the bastion, re-primed a few new ruins and assembled a new bunker - which I really enjoyed. Our new friend from Scotland (my apologies, I don't know how to spell his name, my bad) did some good work with his Chaos marines, before he and I decided to roll some dice. That was a pretty close-run battle - we deployed at one of the dead-grass tables (with abandoned Imperial settlement), dawn of war annihilation, and the first time in years I'm using Guardians in a pick-up game - short, sharp, bloody and absolutely a blast! Thanks for the game.
Also at the main hobby table was Ivan and Jeff. Ivan was on hand to show us some amazing GS work with his smelly termies and blited daemon princes. Them's some real skills, dude ... looking forward to seeing that all done up (perhaps after some dip?). Talking about dip, Jeff's Unclean are coming along nicely, in all their stinkiness. The Lord was done, as was a couple of other termies. But the star had to be the Rhino. In the space of one hobby nite, the Rhino was assembled, fitted with kustom Unclean extra armor (you gotta check these out), then primed and base-coated. Now we are all waiting to see it dipped!
Talking about dip again, Faizal's new veterans also got the dip treatment - and they look awesome! His IG took on Rizal's Ultramarines (complete with the cool cheapo no-sponson Predator) and I think the Astartes won that kill-point battle. Back to the dip, Dann finally saw the light, that is, the dip-light, I think. After seeing how FAST the Unclean is coming along, he had an epiphany - that's how his Nids are going to be done at long last (and I secretly had one of my own too - for my O&G). This dip thing is contagious!
Khairul and Arzmi hung out for awhile, no doubt getting infected by the new contagion. And amidst all that, I managed to plant the seed of yet another new army in some people :) GW should start paying me ...
I lurv Hobby Nite! See you guys next week! Ave Legio!
