Last nite's Hobby Nite was a dice fest of sorts. I was lucky to come early enough to put some extra detail onto the Sextons (Decals, extra weathering, and hand painted the regiment numbers. My advice for next time - don't do it! very tiny), and paint the crew (which I had forgotten about).
Subhan was earlier though, and was patiently waiting at the gate when I rolled in. The reason for his excitement was revealed when he took out his brand-new pre-owned 40k army - and spent the entire Hobby Nite learning how to use it in a couple of games. Kong was early too, and we had some good shop talk while I was killing my eyes painting tiny 6's on the 15mm scale British SPGs, before his Infinity games took off.
Dok Selvam, Faizal, Joe, Alvin, Iz were hot on the 40k tables, and I found that my IG were the only defenders of the Imperium last nite. Too many xenos, heretics and traitors! I should note that Iz also brought his FoW Germans, but I did not bring my FoW Brits, so it was 40k all the way for the both of us.
We had some first time visitors - Mr Chaos and Macxell dropped in to check out the Legio. Hope to see you guys at future hobby nites.
Anyways, the dice rolling was furious indeed. I only got in a couple of hours of painting before Faizal's Chaos lured me to the table. I hadn't touched any of my 40k armies in a while, and it was loads of fun.
Hobby Nite ended later than usual last nite, and I did not realize the time until the guys suggested a mamak run. I looked at the watch, and suddenly felt tired. Tired, but totally happy! Can't wait for next Hobby Nite!
