KINDRED II and biting off more than you can chew!


It's that time again and I'm glad I'll be able to make it back for Kindred II.
My old partner Dann has taken off with a wolf and my new partner in crime Kadir and I will be taking on the great generals at KINDRED II.

I had my best fun at Kindred last year and winning the People's Choice Award was the highlight of my hobbying 'career' and I'm truly thankful to those around me. However KII brings new challenges and generals to the fray. Great generals with great armies, cheesy ones to fluffy ones. Great converters and painters, ready to wow everyone with the stroke of their brushes and green stuffing skills. Oh yes, it will be great!

Me being a gaming noob, will need all the help I can get from my partner. Since I started this hobby I've only had about 8 games in total in 3 years. I'm not really into the gaming, much rather prefer to model and convert to my fickle hearts desire. But one thing that set's me apart from them, the ability to never finish and army. Oh yes folks, I do not have a single finished army. True that I have the minis to make the army, but they're all in dire need of painting... From my Death Guard cheese dual Daemon Prince to the Warrior brood of Hive Vo'rad. They're all in need of paint. I'm not going to start about how I'm not a good painter or anything, just that I never get around to painting them. With me moving to Adelaide, it's gotten worse. My paints and minis are in Malaysia and I'm here with my brushes and green stuff.

Maybe it's time to sell off the old army and settle with just one. But then again, that has never been a good excuse for any wargamer. With constant releases of updated armies, one can only wonder what goes on in a gamers mind! Getting back on track, I can't wait to get back to game and catch up with the Legio Malaysia and Hobby Forge boys. Till KII, happy hobbying and good night!

Anyways, below is the Kindred II Rulespack Hardcore in pdf. Enjoy

Very small update

Hey there.
It's been too long.
With the birth of my little boy and us adjusting to being first time parents, things have been a little crazy around here. But alas, 16 days later we're slowly settling down and having more time to ourselves. Me especially :)

On to the hobbying, well as you all know I'm building a new secret army for 2011.
This will be THE ONE and ONLY ONE army for me for this year.
Was supposed to do White Scars, but decided against it and sell everything off.
But this army will take the cake, the whole cake and not just a small slice. I'm very excited and I'm currently waiting for the rest of my stuff to get here. Good thing is there's tons of places here that sells hobby stuff. Bad news is it's slightly more expensive compared to Malaysia. I was in Spotlight (A huge place which sells arts and craft stuff) 2 days back, just browsing and I found a magnifying lamp which was on sale. AUD 20, minus the base but us being hobby people it was easily rectified with a piece of wood with a hole drilled into it. It's not bad considering its RRP was AUD50. Overall I'm happy to have finally gotten my hands on one and this will help in painting and sculpting.

On another note, there is this great hobby shop not too far from where I am.

A short write up will be on once I get more info and pictures of the place
