Hobby Night March 29th, 2013 : A Night of Winners

First of all, a huge congratulation to Subhan, for being crowned the Legio Malaysia 40K League 4 Champion. Subhan's necron force managed to swept all before him with such impunity and fanaticism that he even bagged the League Fanatic award .  This well deserved victory earned him his first ever Legio Purity Seal. Well done good sir!

Best Painted for the League as voted by his peers went to Faizal Sani for his beautifully painted Space Wolves army.

Best Sportsmanship, also as voted by his peers went to Mr. Mark, nice guy, Smith. Mark placed third in the final league standing. Being voted best sportsman speaks volume to his approach of this game that we all love.

Congratulations to all the winners. And thank you to everyone who took part in the League.

Last Friday was also the Fast Attack throwdown. After all the votes were tallied, Faizal Azlan came out tops with his amazingly painted Nurgle Blight Drone. Other than the obviously astonishing paintjob, his effort in constructing a cinematic base was probably the deciding factor in attracting votes, slightly edging Goh's Night Lords Heldrake.

And here are the rest of the Fast Attack Throwdown participants.
2nd Place - Night Lords Heldrake
3rd Place - Eldar Vyper
Dark Eldar Reaver Jetbike
IG Vendetta
Well done and a very big thank you to all the participants for finishing and entering their Fast Attack choice. Inspiring work and magnificent dedication. You are all winners to us :)

The Kill Team playtesting games were also in progress. Stay tuned for battle reports by Mark Smith, coming soon on Legio Malaysia.

Ave Legio!

Spartan Games Arena and RSVP's Ahoy!

Greetings Legionnaires and Hobbyists Alike, for it's time for some announcements and the RSVP thread!

First off, for those of you who don't know there's a new shop in the area that among other things is selling Games Workshop goodies called Spartan Games Arena. Judging from the posts on their Facebook page, they are mostly dedicated to collectible card games and board games. However, they have also posted up some pics of wargaming tables and 40K armies duking it out, and they carry Games Workshop figures and paints. We're glad to hear about another hobby shop out there, and we hear they are running their first 40K league starting next week.

Their 40K Escalation League starts April 1st, with armies beginning at 500 points and finishing at 1750 points at the end of the 2+ months league. Follow this link to visit the event page and get details from the organizer Irfan Ishak.

Speaking of leagues we've got a lot going on at Hobby Night tomorrow, first being the awards ceremony for our 40K League Season IV winners! Please join us if you can and give a big hand when they come up for their certificates :)

Also on tap for the evening is the "Fast Attack" challenge for our ongoing Legio Army Throwdown army painting challenge. Please drop by and vote for your favorite speedy unit- it's much appreciated!

We're also running another night of playtesting for our WIP "Kill Team" rule set. It's a fun way to play 40K with very small, customized forces in exciting commando-style missions. We'll be running a full Kill Team Campaign later this year once we've ironed out all the kinks. If you want to help us out and have some fun to boot, please ask about Kill Teams tomorrow and get involved!

Finally, we've got a special announcement for all members of Legio Malaysia. If you can possibly make it tomorrow we suggest you pop by. We've got something to show you that's damn cool and something we've been working on for a long time now. If you want details and a first peek, you've got to come by! :)

See you all there, and don't forget to post up your RSVP here or on our Facebook page!

Snipers, grenades and exploding oil drums!

Last Friday was the first play test of the kill team rules, and what a night!! The plan was to simply just play test the rules; however we ended playing 5 games, lobbing grenades at each other, blow up six oil drums and hold a three player game by the end of the evening.
Kill team is designed to be a Special Ops game where players can field small teams and play mission based around fun and creative scenarios. Due to the game being based around small Ops teams, multiple players can field teams. This makes it easy to join, needing only a few models for a team and fun to play against more than one player.
Teams can also use special war gear and various skills. For example, you can use smoke grenades to cover your tactical movement, take suspensors for your heavy weapon's team member giving him Relentless or give your sneakly sniper the Crack shot skill.
So what were some of the highlights of last week's test games? 
A marine armed with heavy bolter chasing the opposition down corridors, just lika a young Bruce Willis. The same HB marine in a mexican standoff with a marine armed with a sniper rifle( the sniper won because the HB marine ran off...unlike Bruce Willis!!)
And Shukor blowing up the oil drum objectives twice!!! Followed by him taking out the power generator resulting in the game going into night fight mode!!
Play test 2 will be held this Friday, so who wants to join? We are looking for more players to bring their action Heroes to the table!!
