At one point of time, there were 17 people in the session. That fact alone, pretty much summed up the last Legio Hobby Night. Have a look below.
Let's start off with the Legio Hobby Night's mainstay: the Hobby Table. Since May 18th is just around the corner, furious assembly and painting of FoW miniatures were foreseen. The frenzy on Hobby Table even got Mark and Nahri interested with the game too; only a matter of time now before we see another Axis and Ally army marching to war. However, as pictured below, there were two things noted (not that they were significant remarkable, but good signs of the future).
|The Hobby Table|
The first thing that you can see was that Yip was in attendance, painting. Definitely a good sign there, since he's a good painter to begin with but lacked the motivation to paint his stuff (the only person left now is Ivan, who still need the right push to get him painting). As for the second thing...hmm...wait, did I see it right? Let me double-check.
Wow, it was really him in person. The ever-elusive Wolf Lord Syamael finally materialized during the hobby night instead of the whisper-from-the-warp routine. And look at his side of the table, that was simply more than twenty FoW Soviet infantry bases he got there. By the looks of things, he has set his mind on participating in the Firestorm: Bagration campaign. But, will he be able to commit himself in the upcoming campaign? That, we gotta wait and see.
Continuing with the FoW Hobby Rush, Alvin decided to repaint most of his 1500pts German army (which consisted of only 6 Tiger tanks). It appeared that his airbrushing activity has attracted some of the WM/H players to the art of airbrushing, which led to another brief Airbrushing 101 session that he gladly did. By the way, do you want to know something that's even more amazing?
There was not a single game of WH40K played that night, a very rare occurrence given the local affinity towards the game. Don't really know what happened to the WH40K community, but the information that we had was that two of them were busy preparing themselves physically and mentally to venture into the depths of sea (at different locations) during this weekend. So with WH40K out of the picture, enter Flames of War, Warmachine/Horde and even Battlefleet Gothic.

Last but not least, the highlight of the day belonged to Yip. These were the awesome things what he painted last Hobby Night. From my personal point of view, he'll be giving a run to everybody else in the upcoming Golden Kris on June 30th, especially for the Unit Category.
That would be all for the night, and we closed rather early at 12.15 am as compared to the previous week. Looking forward for another great week to come.
Speaking of which, to all past and present Legionnaires, there will be a Legio Malaysia General Meeting held during the next Hobby Night; the first for 2012. Please RSVP your attendance for the meeting via the email that has been sent to you.
