Reload!

It's been quite some time since I last blogged. If you want, I can tell a very lengthy story but I'd probably just bore you to death. I don't know how to describe the feeling of holding a miniature and getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus. It felt more than great!

October 8th will be the start of the 2nd Legio Malaysia Army Throwdown, and the theme is WFB. I'm taking this opportunity to (re)paint my Warriors of Tzeentch that has been patiently waiting for a proper paintjob. I'll most probably not going to have a Rare entry for the Throwdown since I'll be strictly sticking to my army fluff; no monsters and mutations.

Chaos Warhounds and Tzeentch Sorceror

I've covered Core and Hero so far, and I still have a Chariot and some cavalry models to assemble. I'm also spraying white over the Chaos Warriors' cloaks since they already had a blue basecoat. To me, participating in the Throwdown gives me the chance to start over. Since WFB is set in the Medieval Era, and Chaos Warriors are wild savage-like people; painting them in proper uniform-like fashion just doesn't click to my logic. Uniforms are okay for 40K but looks misplaced for WFB.

I've also recently discovered that Paxter will be painting Tzeentch Warriors too; currently thinking hard to distinguish my army from his. The only option that came to my mind is to paint them ala Brettonians, with personalised (disorder) heraldries and such. The obstacle for that idea; I'm not confident that I can pull that look off. Any other good ideas?

That's it for now, trying to keep it short and simple. My next post will be my (belated) review on how the (not so) new Eldar Codex affected my army build. Lastly, I'm not sure if you've seen this blog, but you MUST check it out. If that masterpiece of art do not impress you as a miniature wargamer, I don't know what will.

      I may need some pointers from you regarding camera settings.
      It seems my old DSLR has some problems to focus.
