Journey into Naggaroth - Prelude - The Black Guards and the Sorceress

Without waiting for my post on the arrival of the Warhost of Naggaroth box set which I will get it after Christmas for my "Christmas Shopping" plus everything I need to start of with my Dark Elves, so stay tuned. I'll just jump right into all that I have for my Dark Elves army.

Journey into Naggaroth - Prelude - The First Step

Instead of venturing into the lush forest of Lustria in search of stealthy lizards and deadly dinosaurs, or the high and pristine towers of Ulthuan which was previously explored, now the painter (more like gamer) has decided to be a permanent resident of Naggaroth.

While waiting for the biggest bulk to get the wheel turning for the Fantasy project so I took the liberty to get the Har Ganeth Executioners box set (also makes Black Guards) and the Sorceress plastic piece. That's all I bought from Neo-Plamo and I really wish that they brought in the items I wanted in one whole bulk. (That's the reason this is only a prelude)

Road to Emperor's Fist Tank Company - Part 3 - The Parade of Arms

Lets start to put the arms to the parade and start the drum roll.

From Front: Formation Leader (Leman Russ Vanquisher),
1st Squadron (Leman Russ Executioners),
2nd Squadron (Leman Russ Battle Tanks),
3rd Squadron (Leman Russ Exterminators)
The 2nd and 3rd Squadron will be on display at Neo-Plamo, Ipoh for 2 weeks courtesy of the the shop's boss to hopefully better introduce the hobby game to the customers (Could have been the whole formation if not for the lack of space in one level of his display case). Not forgetting you guys in KL so hardcore about Apocalypse, I have a formation right here and waiting. All you have to do is fix a good date that I could join.

The completion of the Emperor's Fist Tank Company also marks the end of the crazy expansion of my Imperial Guard army (although there will be some purchases, especially the highly anticipated new Codex: Imperial Guard and their new kits here and there on March 2014).

It is now approaching 2014, it is time for me to venture into the Old World. My choices would either by the Scourge of Naggaroth or the Hunters of Lustria.

Road to Emperor's Fist Tank Company - Part 2 - The First Wave

The First Wave of the Emperor's Fist Tank Company, all thanks to Tamiya Masking Tape that make painting the squadron markings much easier in those tight situations. These things are not porous to paint from the top thus making painting squadron markings much straighter than ever.

My first game @ Wira Games and Hobbies

The wargaming scene is now centered upon Wira Games and Hobbies at SS17, Subang Jaya. Prior to this post it is only my second time visiting them and I can tell you that is still the best place around Klang Valley region for war gaming might I say. This trip down to town had pitted my against 2 battles back to back. First against Necrons and secondly against the combined might of Chaos and Fallen Dark Angels, but I shall only cover the battle against Necrons

Necrons led by Warlord Bill from Tomb World Subang is a starter in the scene that had kicked some butt in Wira so Herbert has decided to play against an experienced player. A 1750 points game has been commissioned then and the forces has been deployed as follows

Setting up. 1750 points of Necrons Vs. Imperial Guard

Giving a new lease of paint 2

By decree of the Departmento Minitorum, all Chimera Armored Transport and all Leman Russ chassis of the 121st Cadian-Catachan Combined Regiment shall undergo the Rites of Dettol, the cleansing of paint using Dettol, a common anti wound corruption liquid used by any household within the Imperium of Mankind. Although  is being sanctified by Dettol, over exposure to this liquid will cause skin to be corrupted akin to Nurgle's Gift but is a gift from the Apothecary.

Oh, the corruption on my skin. (Requires a zoom for a better look)
Some results after the Rites of Dettol

Such results are pretty much called for as Dettol is known to effectively reduce paint but did not notice that it will turn to to some sticky goop upon exposure to water, makes handling a little tricky. Need not mention the smell of Dettol that could potentially raise concern among the hab complex's resident's parents over such heavy usage of Dettol.

Wargaming @ Ipoh. An open letter to Neo Plamo, Herbert, KL Wargamers, Ipoh Wargamers,

Dear Neo Plamo,

You have an awesome place no doubt, for Ipoh standards. You take pride in your establishment, you commit yourself in promoting the modelling hobby, and provide awesome support for those in the hobby. I fully support your commitment in promoting the Warhammer franchise, as it is far reaching, great storyline and they have awesome miniatures to boot. As far as collecting and painting goes, you are doing great but the gaming aspect of it is pretty much fresh for you. While you can cover the painting part, the gaming aspect will be covered by me. I'll impart the fun and knowledge to all your customers who started with Warhammer 40k and a little on Fantasy. It will start off quite difficult for most but after a few games you should be able to grasp it. I guess now I have a duty here now. As a shop warming gift, I bought myself the Leman Russ Battle Tank kit and a tube of Plastic Cement. But there will be future purchase from me.

With gratitude and best wishes,
Yee How

Dear Herbert,

I would like you to thank you for your awesomeness in introducing the Ipoh Wargamers and also a place for Wargaming, although the place is new but given time it will grow. All these while for almost one year in Ipoh long term, I've always assumed that there are no war gaming communities in Ipoh, and so I was proven wrong. However, this does not even one way saving my trips to KL for war gaming because KL is still awesome for war gaming like Peter the Cheese, Edwin the Hungry, Wong the Sifu, Redeye the whipping boy, Zaki the Missing One, Daniel the "I Don't Have Space for Everyone" and you the 40 badass ass whooping scouts. 

The store they pointed me to is awesome for both you and me, you liked Warhammer and military scale models, they store have it all, you will find it hard to hold back your wallet. The variety of players just started to take shape here in Ipoh and I have a duty to expand it because my exposure to this game. I hope if you happen to drop by Ipoh, I welcome you to visit the place.

Your Awesome Friend,
Yee How

The previous week was a glorious week for me, with my shipment from GW and my awesome friend David Lian (owner of the once "Warp Space Games") came on the same day, it was another string of interesting hobbying for the weeks to come.

Although they are no proof that the things came from the box here is the breakdown of the shipments.
From Games Workshop: Sammael, 2 Meltagun Packs, 1 Plasmagun Pack and Green Stuff
From David: Space Marine Tactical Squad and Psychic Power Cards.

Ravenwing First Steps

From my previous post, this what I'm going to start with for Ravenwing
and yes I do note the missing Sammael
New codex bug, bite me and yes end up with a new army to start with, Dark Angels. Since they are quite the number of Deathwing builds, might as well I go around with the Ravenwing. Bikes, bikes and a lot of bikes with very fast moving things. I do have a 1750 points list in mind

An open letter to all who follows The Tardy Painter
