Currently drooling...

Forgive me for the icky title. Those that have played against/with my Eldar army knew that Fire Dragons and Walkers are featured prominently. I've also recently added a Wraithlord to the mix via the Legio Malaysia Army Throwdown, since I really like the 'walker look'. Apparently, Craftworld Ilfirin will have a new addition in the near future.

May 10-18th, 2013 - A Very Productive Period

The local guys may have known this for some time. By pure attrition, I've earned my second Purity Seal as I was the only one who completed the 2000pts Army Throwdown challenge on May 10th, 2013.

Two Purity Seals, both earned from 'painting endurance' events (the first one was from Iron Painter). I also earned the Iron Halo from the most recent Iron Painter event. Slowly, I'm beginning to figure out what my strength really is; whilst I may not be the best painter nor gamer, it seems that I might probably have something special in endurance challenge. This theory need to be tested in the next Iron Painter and Army Throwdown events.

May 18th, 2013 marked the day that Legio Malaysia organised their fifth Birthday Bash (Happy Birthday!). For the current installment, Kindred 4 (K4) and Golden Kris was held concurrently during the celebration. Rizal and I didn't do well in K4, both of us rolled too many double and triple 1s the entire tournament, but we won't fret much about it. To cut things short, the 5th Birthday Bash was another great event by Jeff and Khairul (Thanks!).

The pictures below are shots of my entry for the Duel Category; a Raven Guard marine versus a Khorne Bloodletter.


This Duel diorama earned me First Place in the Duel category; my very first First Place finish. Honestly, the marine was a hurried job of 'wet-on-dry' and the daemonsword OSL was not so good. Perhaps, my elaborate base won me the trophy. For more pictures (which is a lot) of the Birthday Bash event, please visit Legio Malaysia's Facebook site.

Yes, the trophy is humongous!
I think I had enough of painting proper WH40K and WFB miniatures for now. My next projects will be to paint up the Kill Team terrains I owed Mark and to create a Legio Cybernetica Maniple prototype.
