Congratulations to Joe for bagging the Purity Seal in recognition for a job well done with his Fortenhaf WFB campaign! I personally think it's well-deserved. Totally look forward to more of this kind of excellent wargames dedication and all kinds of goodness!
Hobby Nite was also really interesting as we saw some really good diversity happening at the Legio. For instance, Jeff and Iqbal hobbying away with FoW and BFG models (and later Arzmi happily airbrushing his daemons); while Jeff, Nick, Syamael, Faizal and myself were fighting desperate battles in the deep space of BFG; even as Doc and Arzmi were locked in honorable WFB battle in the Old World; and Alvin, Din, Joe and Subhan were duking out in the grim battlefields of 40k; while Soo Jin, Kong and Jade's dogfighting was setting the sky ablaze in their AI games. There was even one moment that only had 4 tables with games on them - all of them from different games systems. I love it!
Doc bid us farewell for a few months as he takes ship yet again. We wish him bon voyage and a safe, speedy and happy return to Legio shores. I suspect he will return with an entirely brand new army all painted up and ready to roll, as he always does after everyone of his tours of duty. Any bets what that army's going to be?
I really stretched it for myself - started cleaning my brand new FoW Cromwells, had two large BFG campaign battles, and even a pick-up game of 40k with my Eldar. Man, that was awesome! It was a real dice-fest of a Hobby Nite, and the last dice rolled in anger was actually pretty late (I believe it was a Tau escort trying to get away from a squadron of Iron Wolves Gladius frigates) and certainly much later than usual.
Anyways, it's par for the course that Hobby Nites end with extremely tired bodies and minds, but extremely happy souls, and this Hobby Nite was no exception. In fact, it somehow felt even better than the last one. Then again, I feel like that every week :) ... I love it! See you guys next week!
