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.

Road to Emperor's Fist Tank Company - Part 1 - Tankgasm!

My recent visit to Wira Hobbies and Games is one big haul for my Emperor's Fist Tank Company, 4 Leman Russ Battle Tanks are now being added into the fray in one sitting and emptied their stock for the item. But I still lack one more in my formation!

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.
