Kindred II : Heroes wrap up

All hail the Winners of Kindred II : Heroes !!!
What a glorious time we had at K2.
This year marks the second running of the Legio’s Kindred tourney franchise and I’m very happy to say that it was quite a success.
We had 28 brave souls who participated in the madness, mayhem and super fun that Kindred have been known for. From the start of the registration, to the end of the prize giving ceremony, smiles and laughter was aplenty!!!
When Arzmi and I discussed the concept of the first Kindred (K1) tourney, the first thing that we wanted to achieve was to ensure that everyone had fun participating in the event. We wanted Kindred to be a laid back, put your hair down, unserious and wacky tournament environment. We wanted beginners and veteran gamers to meet and play. We wanted hobbyist and powergamers to enjoy themselves.
We were very happy with the response we got from players who participated in K1 and decided that Kindred 2 (K2) just had to happen.
For K2 we wanted the event to be even more fun and wacky; if that was even possible…
That’s why for K2, we came up with a theme…hence the official name of Kindred II : Heroes. This time we wanted you to be the main character in the event!! And to help you in that endeavor we introduced ….jeng, jeng, jeng…..the Expendables.
I’m sure all of you had a blast conceptualizing and then making your Expendables a reality. We saw some really jaw dropping awesome Expendables at K2.
For those among you who were not too tied up with playing during K2, you might have noticed that the mission for K2 (and even K1) had a Bro theme to it. This was intentional and meant to add spice to the doubles event. How many of you actually Highed 5s your partner during the first mission J??
I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few individual without whom K2 could never have been a reality.
1. Mr. Jeff ‘Awesome Forgemaster’ Brooks
THE MAN at Battlefront Malaysia and also Legio Malaysia 1st Officer for all his assistance from planning to executing K2. Who would have thought that he would be our number crunching grot during the tourney…that’s how awesome the guy is. Thanks bro!!
2. Mr. Alvin ‘Hobby Forge Owner’ Khaw
For generously picking up the tab for the delicious (sebab free) pizza lunch.
3. My Bro, the Lord Inquisitor etc etc etc Arzmi
Thanks for organizing this event with me. We sure had fun didn’t we bro.
And finally, to each and every one of you who participated in K2!! We truly appreciate the effort that you took in assembling your forces and getting them all nicely painted for the event. 28 painted 750 + 5 Expendables on the display tables was truly a sight to behold.
Congratulations to all the winners especially Kindred II : Heroes Tournament Champion, James & Zaki. Their Blood Angels and Tryanids force was magnificient!! The fluff was captivating, their Expendables amazing and their models were very beautifully painted. It’s no wonder that they won multiple awards.
But in the end Everyone's a winner at K2 J
We hope you had fun and appreciate all comments.
Hope to see you next year at K3 : Reve……………………….

Furious Dice, Curious Moves and Even More Curious Projects.

Last night's Hobby Nite was amazingly interesting. It started quietly enough with a quick trip to the friendly neighbourhood watering hole serving quality beverages, just perfect for some intense wargames hobby talk. I must say that's an excellent to start proceedings. Then back to the Legio hobby room! Jeff got to work on the next version of his Flesh Tearers, somehow inspired by the eye candy in White Dwarf. I believe he was experimenting with paints and colors and by the end of the night he had something really nice going. Looking forward to seeing the rest of that army done. Chang arrived later with even more loot for the Flesh Tearers project - looks serious. Iqbal had an equally curious project on the hobby table. Something like 26 Fire Dragons or so. Haven't seen that done before. Also saw some of the conversion work he's working on - dude, nice job! Over at the gaming tables, a veteran of the Great Balau Wars emerged from the Warp. It's been awhile since we've seen him, and Jo's Blood Angels were looking good (including a rather large model WIP which he brought but did not use). He played 2 games - his blood-crazed mon-keigh easily eating up my Alaitoc Rangers in a KP game, before being himself being eaten up by Dann's ever-hungry Nids. I had a game with Dann's Nids too, and that was pretty funny - stuff like infiltrating Scorpions starting the battle deep behind the Nid line (and pretty much causing much mayhem and earning MVP), Swooping Hawks killing one of them mama gaunt-factory things in close combat and oft-confused Wraithlords. I love this new no-tank list of mine. Anyways, we finished pretty late - I realized I was up like 22 hours by the time we packed up. That was a total blast. Tiring, but excellent. And totally looking forward to the next Hobby Nite.
