Closed this Friday Folks

This Friday is a local holiday, and I've decided to take a little road trip and visit Malacca City this weekend with my wife. We're driving down Friday morning, so obviously we won't be opening up the factory for hobby night. My apologies if you had your heart set on the Legio this week, but I've never been to Malacca and I hear the food and sights are awesome.

Once I get back on Sunday I'm starting my third "Hobby Rush" with the goal of painting a Flames of War 1750 Point French Infantry Company by the end of September. What are your plans for the long weekend? Any new armies? Mighty battles? Tell us all here, and think happy thoughts. The next Hobby Night will be on September 3rd!

Cool Store in KK

I was in KK earlier in the week on a business trip, and managed to squeeze in a bit of time to drop by Just Wargame, the store owned by the 2010 Golden Kris winner - and I'm glad I did!

It's a real comfy place just one floor up in a strip-mall with an Old Town downstairs, lots of other makan places around and shopping mall next door.
As you enter, stock is arranged on racks to the right and currently it's all 40k and Fantasy.

There's plenty of space in the store, and 6 tables were already set-up with terrain, and the always-handy fridge stocked with all manner of liquid refreshment (none of the Paulaner variety). There's a couple of tables for painting and modeling, and there were a few cool-looking terrain projects in progress.

In fact, the ample space is really attractive. The place can easily - comfortably - have 10 tables and still have spare room. Which prompted my next question - does Just Wargame plan to have any tournaments in the near future? And the answer is a yes! I don't have details yet, but it will be on December 4th and 5th. We'll post up details once we get them.

Anyways, if you are ever in KK, go check out the store at B1-3, Lot 9, 1st Floor, Blk B, Karamunsing Capital, KK. phone: 010-9510187. email:

What a Rockin' Hobby Nite

That was a fantastic Hobby Nite. It helped that I managed to come in early :) Saw some of Jeff's spanking new Deathkorps infantry ... really nice models and paintjobs. He spent the rest of the day assembling, basing and undercoating a squad of DKOK infantry. Man, that FW stuff is really awesome - and super-detailed too. The bayonets fit onto the rifles just like a real bayonet should. Nuts.

Kai was also there by the time I arrived, painting up his mechs - nice and bright paintwork. I got down to assembling my O&G stuff. I managed to get 20 Night Goblins, 3 fanatics and a rock lobber and crew assembled, and prepped 4 more Boar Boyz for assembly - which would have been done except that I did owe Subhan a game. That game turned out to be super-fast as my Ravenwing were easily cleaned off the table by his Chaos marines (it was really quite amazing).

Talking about dice-chucking, we had a new face last nite, Ian, who brought his Space Wolves. After hanging awhile talking shop at the hobby table, Doc arrived fresh from his latest voyage in the deep blue seas, brandishing his mean purple Orks. Jo and his Nids were around, looking for food, which he found amidst some nasty looking Blood Angels. Kong had some WFB action going, though I completely missed that game - I spent most of my time at the hobby table with my O&G. And amidst all that 28mm GW action, Saleem and Kai were going at it with what sounds like a hard-fought Heavy Gear game.

Anyways, that felt really good. Totally looking forward to more!!!
