That was one amazing Hobby Nite! I managed to roll in early, and partook in some excellent beverages while talking about our most insane of hobbies. In the meantime, Subhan's vile Chaos Daemons had descended and were happily tearing apart some of the Emperor's finest (Red's).
I then proceeded to the hobby table and had an amazing time assembling my latest squad of resin goodness. Pity I forgot to bring enough shoulder pads, but I did manage to get the squad about 90% assembled. Jeff was doing likewise with his stash of shiny new toy soldiers, and the heavy metal in the background served well to drive the industry.
Kadir turned up with his initiate and proceeded to do Fantasy battle with Arzmi (who was happily collecting the Emperor's tithe for K2). Cikgu Din arrived with my brand-new Predator. I have some grand plans for this tank - but after K2 la.
With the squad assembled I headed off to the gaming tables, where much action was happening. The Daemons were joyously destroying a beautiful dying race. My Ravenwing deployed for action against heretical self-proclaimed kin of Sanguinus and the battle was amazingly sharp, involving a lot manouver and speed. It's been more than a year since I took the Ravenwing out and it felt really good. The battle ended in a draw.
And it felt so good I picked up another battle against xenos Eldar, and again it was a great affair with both sides being fast and manouverable. The Ravenwing truimphed this time, but in the aftermath, Sammael had to be brought into the apothecary's chambers (last wound lost to his overheated plasma cannon).
Anyways, we all retired rather late. Tired but absolutely happy. And totally looking forward to next Hobby Nite!

Pretty cool trailer if you ask me, and I definitely plan on picking this book up. For those who have not yet partaken of Black Library's fairly new "Space Marines Battles" series, you've missed some good stuff. I've read Rynn's World and Helsreach, and they were both excellent reads.
If you're looking for a new book, or are a Dark Angels fan (Azlan??!!), you might want to this out...
