At Last- RSVP Time!

It's been two weeks since our last Hobby Night, and I for one can't wait until Friday! I'll be playing games with my Eldar and Battlemech lance- how about you guys? I've already heard a lot more folks are coming then in the last few weeks, so I'm guessing it's going to be an action packed night.

Make a post right here in this thread, and declare your Friday for the Legion!

Hobby Night Cancelled This Week

Due to some schedule conflicts, we're not going to be able to host Hobby Night this Friday. We encourage everyone who would have attended to pop by their favorite hobby shop and get a game in regardless!

We'll be back in action on Friday, July 30th. Until then, cheers!

Last Friday was pretty quiet- will the same be true this time? Crack out your toy soldiers. It's time to hobby...

As usual, I'll be painting Eldar like a madman. How about you guys...?

RSVP Time!

Well, the club's Birthday Bash is done and dusted, and it's now time to look ahead and see what's next for the Legion. Without a doubt, a lot of members and area hobbyists (including myself!) are thrilled about the imminent launch of Warhammer new edition. The game has significantly changed from the previous edition, and I'm really looking forward to getting that rulebook and learning what's what.

What are YOU getting into tomorrow? Working on your Warhammer army? 40K gaming? Tell us here!

Golden Kris Photos Up!

Off to the right you can see a little slideshow caption- click on that and you'll access the full sized image album of all the entries.

Last year I set the pics to some music, so I thought why not try again...

Enjoy everybody, and thanks to all who attended and helped out for making this a great event. See you in 2011 for the next Birthday Bash!

Happy Birthday Legio Malaysia!

Legio Malaysia's 2nd Birthday Bash turned out to be a most rewarding experience. Jeff and I are totally drained from it, but completely happy and satisfied! And I'm sure the exhaustion was shared across the board - the Singaporeans and JB people from their all-nite drive and sleeping in the car, the regular last-minute all-niter painters and of course the people who just had to watch that last World Cup match the night/early-morning before.

We throw this little birthday soiree every year to celebrate our beloved hobby, and especially to celebrate my favorite wargames club in the world. It's just great to see fellow wargamers totally immersed into every aspect of the hobby - the modeling, the painting, the bantering, the gaming, the strategizing, the dice-rolling (and dice-cursing) and the all-round having a great time with like-minded people thing.

This year, along with the traditional annual Golden Kris competition, we hosted the Tournament of Skulls, a standard Legio Malaysia 40k tournament - with a bloody twist in which players fight desperate battles to secure objectives, all the while knowing that great rewards await those who bring sackloads of skulls to the skull-throne. After 3 rounds of increasingly frenzied wargames action, the winners are:

Tournament Champion - Kenny T
Skull Champion of Khorne - Kenny T
Best Sportsmanship - Ritahuddin D
Best Appearance - Kadir D

The Golden Kris this year is just mind-blowing. To say that the standards have improved would be a gross understatement - they've gone right through the roof! I had the great honor of judging this year's contest - and it was a painful honor indeed. I believe judging this year's GK was one of the most difficult things I've done - the models and painting was simply amazing! Now I can't wait to see what the entries will be like next year.

In the end, Golden Kris honors, trophies and medals were awarded to:

Golden Kris 2010 Overall Winner - Oliver V
Golden Kris 2010 Player's Choice - Kadir D
Single Model Category:
Gold - Oliver V
Silver - Jeff B
Bronze - Carl L
Unit Category:
Gold - Carl L

Bronze - Reuben L
Large Model Category:
Gold - Oliver V
Silver - Kenny T
Bronze - Carl L
Special Category - BFG Capital Ship:

Bronze - Rizal A

My many thanks and appreciation to my fellow Legio founder Jeff, our hobby ambassador Khairul (who flew back from Bangkok just to help make this event successful) and everyone who participated and helped out.

Ave Legio!
