... because I get to hobby and hang with an amazing group of like-minded people in an amazing environment full of gaming tables, hobby tables, toy soldiers, and all of the nice things in life!
... because I got to arrive early and finish matt spraying the bastion, primed and basecoated the new bunker, drybrushed and highlighted the bunch of ruins, assembled and primed the campaign map, and got in a bloody game vs a bunch of blue-armored mon-keigh. All this and having to go home in the middle of it because a bunch of aunts and uncles invited themselves to the house for buka puasa!
... because the hobby table was so chock-full with Jeff and The Unclean (amazing progress! You gotta check out the mean Rhino and Predator - rusted and weathered as only Papa Nurgle can allow - and fast too - another Rhino with killer extra armor plates went from sprue to assembled and basecoated within minutes), Ceiran and the last of his Possessed (who also ended the night rolling some dice against da Orkses), Kai and his 15mm minis, Ivan and his Nurgle servants and Iqbal and his Nurgle servants (hmmm, smell a pattern emerging?), we had to open another hobby table to fit everyone in!
... because the dice rolling was hectic and furious, with Doc's lurvly Orkeses, Dann's deep blue Eldar, Rizal's glorious 5th Company, Faizal's up-and-coming IG, Arzmi's new and improved Daemonhunters, Alvin's Alpha romeos, Jo's Daemons, the return of Paxter and Peter and their Chaos Marines from the Warp along with Din's pointy-eared warhost, and the presence of Saleem and Khairul hovering table to table without an army and just hanging out and breathing it all in!
... because we got to hang out at the mamak after Hobby Nite trading war stories and talking about the upcoming campaign (and me realizing that more people than I thought are interested in it) and eat and drink some horribly unhealthy but tasty food and drink and basically extending the good times till the wee hours of the morning!
I lurv Hobby Nite!!! See you guys next week ...
