For the holidays!

I'll be leaving sunny Malaysia for Sunny Australia later today.
My first time there and it's been a long 9 year wait for me.
No hobbying and no 40K for the next 2 weeks.
Won't be meeting everyone till next year I guess, so here's to the Holidays and Merry Christmas.
Have a Happy New Year too while you're at it :p

It's been too long

Check out the poster *Khairul and *Arzmi made.

Just a quick one to keep this blog alive.
Haven't had the chance to hobby much since my last post.

Did however manage to strip some minis.

Good news is that the Iron painter is happening next month, so that simply means I get an extra excuse to buy more minis. Then there's the Kindred doubles tournament by Khairul and Arzmi and Jeff is helping out too. 500 points battle per person, so that makes 1,000 per side. Would be a good time to start that army that I've been wanting to start for the longest time :) Yes, more minis that I just might never finish cause, just cause...

So with that I'm all hyped up and almost ready to go. Still waiting for my paints to arrive so I can finally start painting my army. Word of advice, never order stuff so near to Christmas time anymore.
For more info on the Iron Painter and Kindred tournament head on to

Merry Christmas Everyone

Progress of the week

Was busy the whole of last week and didn't get much done except for this guy right here. It's the oldest Death Guard mini I have and it's the icon bearer. Decided to paint him up in a shade of green. Picture is kinda blurry and out of focus and all but you get the picture.
I like this! It looks like any other DG army out there :p

Also I finally bought Simple Green and was all eager to see what the fuss was about this miracle which was sworn over by so many loyal miniature collectors eager to undo the unholiness of painting. I'M PH'REAKIN CONVINCED! In 24 hours I have managed to remove 15 years worth of sacrilege to my poor old minis. Below are the before and after images. I promise you guys out there, this thing works. It peels off like the skin of a charred pepper soaked in ice cold water. If you need to undo painting that has gone so very wrong or decide to re-paint your minis then this is it. RM19.90 at all Ace Hardware stores. Booya!
When I was younger, so much younger than today I painted this Manticore!

All I did was to brush it with an old tooth brush and rinse in water.

Miracle I tell ya. Miracle. But the stuff burns though, so remember to use protection for those with sensitive skin.

Update, small but still...

My GF's gone to Adelaide for 2 months, so that leaves me with lots of time to game and hobby(I miss her though). Been real busy the last couple a weeks, hence the lack of updates on my blog.

Today I test painted my Chosen Marine Champion. Wanted to test out a few schemes for my army before I go ahead and paint the lot. As always I'm not happy with him after being dipped, but if it's anything like the Termies, then it should turn out fine after a coat of matt spray.

Chosen Champion

My Death Guards and Oblits are being primed white as we speak and more minis are being assembled. Sad though, I can't make it for Legio''s Tournament in November due to work. SIGH!

Also completed are my bases. Basecoat Chaos Black, Drybrush with Vallejo Cold Grey and Flock from GF9 Marsh Blend.

Chaos Lord and Sorceror base

Biker bases all set and done.
Notice there are 8 bike bases. 1 Will be for my alternative Chaos Lord/Sorcerer.

Anyhow I can't wait for Friday as Khairul has promised me a game with his Saim Hann army.
So far I've played 3 games. 2 lost and a draw, not too bad I would say. Still there's time for me to learn and improve.

For more info on Legio and the latest standings on the league, head on to

Till next time.

Death Guard Terminators.

Progress on the Common Cold Elite.
Death Guard Terminators are table top ready. Primed, based, dipped and matt coated. base is done and marsh flock added for the gloomy Nurgly theme. In total they took about 6 hours to complete.

Icon Bearer of Nurgle

Terminator Lord leading his pack into battle

Flamer guy

They're not the best looking guys around but boy do they look great to me. This is a real achievement for me and I can't wait to work on my next squad :)

Also on the plate this week are these bases. This are my version of scenic bases.
Take 1 part PVA GLUE and 2 part Hamster bath sand (Non-scented).
Mix well and apply paste to your hearts desire.

They dry to a solid texture and can be painted, sanded and cut down to size. You can even add sand to the mixture for more texture.

So that's it. I'll try to churn out more minis and hopefully get everything done before the league ends.

Thanks for dropping by and happy gaming.

Keeping the ball rolling...

Slow slow Sunday and BAM my second mini is based and dipped in under an hour.
The DIP is a miracle worker. Just base it like a kid would paint and the dip does the rest.
It's no Eavy Metal or most people's standard but for me, it's a gift from the heavens. I'm not a good painter and I suffer from severe IBS (Itchy Backside Syndrome) and to have him out in 1 hour. Man it feels good.

This is my converted Typhus. I didn't like having him in my army as Typhus but I love the mini so much that I decided to convert him into a normal terminator so I can use him in my games (What a pose I tell ya).

On a side note, I got these plastic cases from Daiso at e@Curve. RM5 and they're perfect for drying minis and transporting large minis. Located on the 3rd floor above Borders/Reject Shop, Daiso is like a dream come true. Imported Japanese stuff at RM5, genius I tell ya. The amount of items that they have is mind boggling. Some items are so worth buying and others can be found else where for a lower price.

Stack-able and neat (I love plastic cases)

My mini's left to dry away from dust.

So there you have it. 2 mini's in 3 day's.

Who's next...

Progress... Finally...

Hobby night was a blast.
The Nurgle Warmasters were at the hobby table, working towards Nurgle domination :p

Iqbal was high on his GS Rhino and mega convert Oblit.
Jeff got 14 models base painted <-- I don't know how you do it bro, but you DA MAN!
Azlan got his tiles to coma alive and ready for Legio Malaysia's first campaign <-- You're a paintbrush maestro.

The rest of the boys were gaming, eating, drinking and rolling dice.
KFC, Fried Chicken, Cookies and Coke = Happy war gaming people :)

So now to me, I got this mini from here

To here

and finally to here

It's still far from the finished product but progress is progress and I'm happy with it. The dip is awesome, just awesome. When I was doing his base coats I had my doubts cause he looked like a 3 year old kid painting his first model. The dip really brings the model to life (Thanks to Jeff for guiding me). Now it's under cover away from dust just waiting for the dip to cure so I can move to the next step, touch ups.

Few things that I need to improve on the models to follow;
- I need a slightly darker paint scheme. This one looks too much like the left half of Jeff's army (His is much better of course). Termies will stay this colour. DG's will get a darker shade and vehicles to be grayish.
- I need to finish base coating my models at a much faster rate. Jeff did 14 and I only did this 1 guy (Damn I'm slow) Thank god the tournament has been pushed back another week.
- I need to game to get experience. Yet to play my first game and have my ASS handed to me (Who called for fresh meat!)
- I need to prime all of them before I head to Legio, problem is I need an airbrush to basecoat them (Khairul where are you :p)

My random thoughts;
GW Skull White is so not worth it (inconsistent and too thin). Chaos Black on the other hand is awesome (consistent and easy to handle). I have way too many Valejo paints that I'll ever need. I need a digital camera. Everyone at Legio is so supportive, thanks guys. I don't need another army after my SM (yet to be named army), ooohhhh I like TAU...must resist temptation. Warhammer 40K is so much fun. I don't like working Saturdays cause then I have less time for my personal life and my hobbies. Why are weddings to expensive?

Thanks for stopping by.

Today's Update

Glued and tracked 4 Rhinos.
Prepped and magnetized Predator sponsons. Now I'm left waiting for my 3mm rare earth magnets to arrive before I can magnetize the turret. Progress is slow but at least there's progress.

Also finally found the right way to do my bases. Sad thing is I already ruined so many 40mm bases.
All part of hobbying I guess.

Back to work then...

Have a good night.

In the mail today

Games Workshop came true again. Delivering my new Space Hulk tiles in record time. Pos Malaysia desecrated the brown box and the tiles fell out. Thank god it was packed to the brim with plastic air bubble bags, so nothing was damaged.

Mail order is so addictive!

Also in are Cities of Death rulebook and Codex: Chaos Demons.

Cities of Death is highly recommended by Jeff and Azlan.
Codex: Chaos Demons is for my personal collection. 4 Codex and counting.... What's next?

Should have got this first

*Picture sourced from Games Workshop website

Collected my AoBR a short while ago. Should have gotten this first before I went out and bought everything else. So finally I have a rulebook and templates to game.

Also have sumore minis. The marines I'm keeping. Dunno about the Orks thought. They look good and all but I don't like painting skin and I'll probably never will. So if anybody's interested let me know. Maybe Legio should have a resident army for newbies to learn and play.

That's it for tonight. I've outdone myself with another double post in a day.

Time to work on my Chaos Predator.

Over the weekend

Hobby night was awesome as usual. Turned up late but still managed to mingle. Many battles were raged, many mini's were painted and modeled. Jeff's Unclean was really turning out to be one uber army. It's funny how he makes it look so simple. Iqbal was on a modeling spree with his Chaos Nurgle "Rojak" army. So many bit's and pieces from so many armies... I'm impressed :) Dann was trying out his new Eldar armylist, Alvin's Chaos Alpha Legion was looking very sweet indeed. So many gamers, so little time... I need to get to hobby night's earlier...

Didn't manage to get much done over the weekend as I had a very sleepy and lazy Saturday.

First thing on the list;
Wings for my Nurgle Demon Prince and a little GS work just to fill the gaps here and there. Still a long way more for this fella. I would say that he's a little over 30% done. Still need to fill in more gaps and make him even more putrid and disgusting

Demon Prince of Nurgle. (Might use him as a Greater Demon)

Next was this guy, I figured I wanted a Chaos Marine Lord. Found the lightning claws from my Raptor champion and off I went cutting it to size...

Chaos Lord with Twin Ligthning Claws

So brutal was this mini that when I was cutting down his claws, the Dark Lords decided that I was long overdue on my annual blood sacrifice.

Picture taken today as it was hurting like hell yesterday.

I had a deep cut on my left thumb. About 1 cm deep. Oh how I love new blades. Now I'm handicapped and I can't do any major work cause it hurts and I can't hold anything small with it.

The Common Cold will definitely take a few steps back this week.

Space Hulk, but I'm dissapointed.

I finally got my copy of Space Hulk.
I was excited as hell. I carefully removed the plastic wrapping with a hobby blade. Careful not to damage anything. I'm like that, very careful with things that are precious to me. This is to be part of my collection and not for gaming.

Opened it and the smell was holy, couldn't make out if it was Chinese air or British air anyways the mini's looked awesome. The casting was mint and everything was perfect except for this one little thing which broke my heart....


Seeing how this was supposed to be part of my collection, I'm devastated. Utterly speechless. Everything else was fine except this. Oh the agony, this always happens to me. Why oh why....

Guess it's just my dumb luck. Thanks for the disappointment GW.

It was like a dream come true for me....

Minis are superb...

Question: Should I sell it away or game it like I stole it?

My First Hobby Night

What a night it turned out to be. Thought I arrived late there was only Azlan (, Jeff ( Kieran at Legio ( Music was blasting, hobby was intensive and when CLUTCH came on that's when things started to kick into gear. I admit, Clutch is catchy... very catchy. Nice One!

Imperial Bastion is a little smaller than I imagined it to be but when Lan was done with it, oh man it was sweet. He also had a custom made bunker, which I think is the base of the Bastion. Beautiful, just marvelous. Its amazing what can be done with a laser cutting machine.

But the highlight of the night had to be the Jeff's rhino with EXTRA ARMOR. Home made, laser freaking cut with inscriptions so small a smurf couldn't even read it kinda awesomeness.
I was blown away by the level last night. At times I felt shy with what little accomplishment I had brought with me :p

Managed to show and tell my puny uncompleted army and got many encouraging words from the guys (Thanks guys, I'm inspired to achieve more now)

I'm a true believer of the dip technique, Jeff's Unclean Termies were awe inspiring. So so so simply awesome. Dann is coming to his dipping senses I hope.

Got some hobby tips from all the senior gamers last night. First thing on the shopping list is MINWAX Wood Finish: Provincial 211 for that dark nurgly feel. Followed by MINWAX Wood Finish: Provincial 211 just in-case I missed it out. ahhahaah Third is TAMIYA COLOR for plastics; Flat Clear for after the dip is done. Last but not least basing material. My Oblits had GW basing material on them, thought they looked okayyyy to me. Jeff did point it out that it looked too chunky. Initially that's what I was looking for, but after looking at what the other guys had on their bases I think I need to find some really fine grit to re-do mine.

Today after work, I headed to 1 Utama TAMIYA UNDERGROUND. 2 can's of TAMIYA COLOR for plastics; Flat Clear ( Stopped off KFC for my monthly sinful 'DINNER PLATE' chicken run. Then off to IKANO ACE hardware, MINWAX Wood Finish: Provincial 211. Then I spent another 2 hour looking for fine basing grit. Was searching high and low for it everywhere from Ikano --> IKEA to The Curve. Finally made my way to Pet's Wonderland in Ikano to look at dog's to ease my frustration away.

On my way out, I stumble upon a group of young kids pointing and laughing at a box of furry creatures. Curiosity (busy-body-ness) got the better of me and I took a peek. Stupid hamsters playing in a box. WOW, how amusing I thought. Then it bloody hit me. Hamster bath sand. I used to have hamster and yeah, they did bathe in sand. So off I went like a little Einstein to the hamster section. Being me, I took the cheapest and last one there (not scented and only RM7.90)

The loot of the day.

On the way back home I stopped by GC for my weekly dose of Warhammer. Dann was there with his Eldar against Tau. I didn't bring my minis, so it's another week without game (sorry Dann). Then I had to go cause of dinner plans.

I love hobby night. So much fun. Now I have dip, there is no excuse for me to delay my army. Target time, 1 month from today.

Thursday Futsal Night Progress

Didn't get much done today cause I had to work late and it's futsal night.

Tidied up my Chosen Marines, added more details to them to make them more Nurgly.
Nurgle Demon Prince is coming along nicely. Won't be doing much to him besides pinning and adding wings. Might make his wings detachable cause the 2 that I currently have right now is a paint to transport.

Anyways, here is my latest addition....from yesterday..... A terminator with Twin Lightning Claws.
This fella here is the sole CC Terminator in the squad of 7.

Helmet is from the Chaos Possessed Marine Squad, which I think give's him the extra uumph! but he looks so very different from the squad cause of the helmet.
Gonna add more plague and pox on him before the rest of the bits go on.

In the mean time, Have A Great Day Ahead.....

I'm off to Legio Malaysia tonight.

Thanks GW :)

GW sent me a replacement box of Death Guard Plague Marines today :)
What's even better is that they included a CITADEL Available To Order Catalogue.

Here's how it started, on my 4th box of Death Guard Plague Marines, I found that they only gave me 6 mini's instead of 7. Plus the one missing was the ever famous Champion model with the Tabard. Apart from that everything else was complete.

Though I could have just used my Chaos Space Marine with Nurgle Icon to fill in the rank, but I decided what the heck I paid good money for it and I'm just gonna write to them and see what happenes.

GW was nice enough to send it to me through UPS and within 3 day's it arrived.
This really makes me happy :)

So here's to the GW Customer Service (Yan) and to GW for an awesome experience.

Thank You.


Let's just see what I have accomplished this week, shall we.

WIP of My Obliterators and Demon Prince.

All Based Up and waiting to be primed

Actually finished converting this guys 2 weeks back, but didn't have the time to assemble the hands and base them. The guy in front is the Chaos Space Marine with Nurgle Icon. He's about 12 to 13 years old right now. I also got the Chaos Space Marine with Khorne Icon.

Well... finally they're ready for base coat. I'm not entirely happy with them, but it's different from the standard form so this will have to do for now. Spend most of my time pinning the legs and trying not to make them look funny cause they're not supposed to be standing up. Think the extended arms look kinda funny too.

But this project was fun to do and I'll gladly convert more in the future. I cut my first model with a dremel and had to wait a week for the bone saw from GF9 to arrive (which is an excellent product). Took hours off my total cutting time :)

Also got around toassembling my Nurgle Demon Prince, which will be proxied as GUO or Smmoned Greater Demon.

Below are my other WIP;

Nurgle Demon Prince
Zombie Dragon Wings

Thousand apologies

I'm just not used to this blogging thingy.
I've been busy working on my mini's and I still don't have a proper camera to take pictures.

Anyways here's some of what I have from my trusty old SE K750i

Demon Princes with Wings, about 30% done

3 Death Guard Champions

Right now these are about 50% - 80% done (NOTHING IS PAINTED YET)
2 Chaos Demon prince with wings.
4 squads of Death Guards (4 Champions with PF, 4 Meltas, 2 Flamers and 2 other with interchangeable weapons)
6 Oblits (Standing Straight Conversion)
4 Chaos Rhinos (Stock)
5 Chaos Termies (4 Combi-Meltas and 1 Heavy Flamer)
5 Chaos Raptors (2 Meltas)

What's still pending
6 Chaos Bikers (Champ with Combi weapon and 2 Melta's)
1 Chaos Land Raider (Not Converted yet)
1 Undivided Demon Prince
1 Nurgle Demon Prince

I'm thinking of adding 5 more Chaos termies and a Chaos Land Raider.
Also toying with the idea of running 5 Chosen with either 4 Flamers or 4 Melta's with a Champ with IoCG for the Summoned Greater Demon :)

I'm so deep in mini's it's not funny anymore. I dunno how I'm gonna get them done. Still waiting for my Citadel Paint Wash set to arrive.

Another army lies idle under my table cause I'm very good at impulse buying... more on that another day.

Tuesday, June 30, 2009


Lookie, lookie what I made my sister get for me as a belated birthday present :)

They're The Slate series from BACK 2 BASE-IX.

3 Large Bases
10 Medium Bases
10 High Small Bases
30 Low Small Bases.

Visited their site not too long ago and was hooked onto the ready made resin bases.
I was too lazy to get any done so I got my little sister to buy them for me :)

Anyways they're really easy to clean up. Took me about 30 minutes with my trusty hobby knife and wall-a, clean and worth bases for me to work with.

Those looking for bases should visit their site and load up on them.

They do send to Malaysia and shipping is quite reasonable.
Bulk it up with some pals and spread the shipping cost :)

It'll take me quite a while to get them painted and table ready as I'm a really slow painter.
So go to the website and start browsing.

Bittering Sweet Symphony in Life

The Verve

Bittersweet Symphony Lyrics

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet
You're a slave to money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind
I am here in my mind
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no, no, no,no,no,no,no,no(fading away)

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind
I am here in my mind
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change
I can't change it

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet
Trying to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah

You know I can't change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind
I am here in my mind
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mind
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mind
no, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
no, no, no

I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
That you've ever been down
That you've ever been down

Dunhill free life

It’s another attempt for me and this time I plan to stick to it. I have done so many times in the past only to succumb to temptation and pressure. I don’t blame anyone for my ill-behaved habit except myself. I know that I can do it. I have succeeded for long periods of time. But the outcome was that I became very agitated, grump and short tempered.

Why smoke in the first place? You waste money, it’s bad for your health, it gives you bad breath. Yeah I’m sure we all heard that before, but we don’t care now do we? I for one enjoyed it and at times loathed it. Everybody’s doing it who not me. Well it’s simple, it’s the company that makes you who and what you are to people around you.

This time it’s different, I’ll shun away from those who temp me. I need support and understanding. Not badgering and making mock out of me. I seek support from those who care and understand that I want to do this.

Stay smoke free.
