What a night, indeed! Last night was one of the best Hobby Nights we've had in recent memory, as not one but TWO awesome events took place. Tables were packed, smack was talked, and everyone had a blast as the dice flew and armies clashed.
First off, last night kicked off the fourth season of the 40K League. Games got started immediately as players did their best to get in as many as possible- Azlan even managed to get two games in before I left for the night! Speaking for myself I had a fantastic game against Faizal's Space Wolves, and learned just how shooty that army can be! While Prince Yriel and the rest of my Iyanden warhost weren't successful in capturing "The Relic", I did have a blast. 25 Wraithguard on the table is a lot of fun...

We also held the second part of our ongoing Legio Army Throwdown. Last night competitors were tasked to display their second Troops choice, and some fantastic squads were entered. Without further ado, here are the awesome entries:
In a closely contested vote, Goh and his excellent Night Lords Chaos Space Marine squad won the second throwdown. Beautifully painted models, a great freehand painted banner, and foreboding display stand all combined to bring Goh victory. Well done!
With only two less votes than the winner, Dann's Dark Eldar Wrack squad came in a close Second Place. The creepy flesh tones and horrific theme really set this squad apart!
Finally in Third Place we have Faizal's converted Iron Warriors Chaos Space Marine squad. The somber tones, sculpted fur cloaks, and excellent conversion work really made this squad stand out.
Our next throwdown is Hobby Night, February 15th, and the category is ELITES. Everyone needs to bring a legal Elites choices from your ever growing army. For myself and three others, we really need to show to this one, as we've all missed both of the initial throwdowns! :O
We'll wrap up with the remainder of the army throwdown entries from last night, in no particular order. Take care, and see you all next week for more miniatures fun and Week 2 of the league!
