All Hail the Metal Rabbit!
Wow, 2011 already! 2010 went by so fast, I think we all ended up with more unfinished models than we care to admit (well, that would apply to just about any year, but even more so for 2010 for some reason).
Looking back, 2010 was somewhat of a tumultuous year for Legio. We had some really amazing things happen - BFG, Kindred, Golden Kris, Tournament of Skulls, the annual 40k Tournament. At the same time, we had some pretty strong Legio members being transferred out of country for one reason or another (Khairul, Faizal, Ivan), and we had to move to the relatively smaller room ("relative", because it still comfortably fits 10 tables plus change) due to serious expansion of our host's business activities.
2010 was also a year of a lot of personal hobbying on the part of Legio core members (you guys checked out Jeff's cool all-Wraithguard Iyanden army?). The Legio hobby table is permanently occupied every Hobby Nite - and on some of the slower nites, we actually had more hobbying action at the hobby table than on the gaming tables! Now that's pretty amazing!
2011 looks like it's going to be a year focused on the hobby. Kindred II is coming up in a few months, and already the brothers kindred have done an amazing job promoting it. I'm totally looking forward to see the armies that will be fielded for that event and have ordered the stuff for my army. The 3rd Golden Kris should draw even more amazing entries as the standards of the Malaysian and Singaporean hobby scene grows steadily. And of course, there are the tournaments and campaigns - and Apoc battles to be had!
I'm getting really excited for 2011. It's the year of the metal rabbit, after all. And metal is Legio music! See you at Hobby Nite!
