It is finally here!! The Gathering Storm!!

When Robert Jordan died 2 years back, i thought that was the end of my favourite band of heroes in the Wheel of Time saga. Just yesterday i find out the book 12 is out and kicking all around the globe.

The Gathering Storm, Book 12 of the Wheel of Time series. RM100 + at Kinokuniya. Cant wait to get my own copy :)

I am not a good writer, but i still wanna say a little bit about the story.

It is a story about 3 kampung boy who was destined to lead the world against the shadows. Each of them is like a pillar supporting a pyramid. If any of them die, the pyramid will fall, and so does the world will fall to the darkness. Even with them around, humanity has only a slightest chance at victory, for the situation is very critical, the forces of shadows is overwhelming, and the world is not yet prepared.

Rand Al'Thor
(The Dragon Reborn)

He is the reincarnation of a the mightiest leader of mankind during the Age of Wonders. The prophecy mentioned him as the saviour of the world against the shadows. He will defeat the Dark One, and destroy the world in doing so.

He is the most powerfull user of the One Power (magics) alive. Able to defeat an army of 40,000 strong in a single channeling. But even without the One Power, he was trained in the swordplay to a Swordmaster level. A very dangerous man, especially since his sanity is in questions.

He leads with iron will, almost a tyrant, something that he think is necessary or humanity have no chance at all.

Matrim Cauthon
(The Gambler/Trickster)

This cheerfull, happy go lucky lad is probably the best general alive in the world. He died once, and came back alive with his memory filled with experiences of hundreds of generals who lived and died during the Warring States era.

In battle he rides atop his horse (named Pips), weilding his A'shandarei (a power wrought spear) accompanied by his unending streams of good luck that was his trademark. He is immune to the effect of the One Power and a very skilled fighter with either his spear of dagger, making him a very dangerous fighter.

He leads The Band of Red Hand, named after a legendary warband during the warring era. The Band never suffered any lost, and his followers loved him because of that. "It's time to toss the dice", the tagline of The Band associated to Mat's superbly good luck.

Perrin Aybara
(The Wolf King)

A former Blacksmith, now a King. He is said to be the saviour after the world is destroyed by Rand in the last battle. He is a wolfbrother, able to communicate with the wolves and calls for their aid in battles. He goes to battle with his axe in hand. Cleaving and chopping like madness everything in his path. No special training in combat, his brute strength is what makes him a great fighter.

He leads by his charisma. Whatever he said, people will believe, and people will follow. Loved by all, his charisma is overwhelming even to the leader of another country to kneel before him.

... ... ...

I dont know if i were able to spark any interest in you guys, i know i'm not a good writer so sorry if i messed up hahaha.

Aniway, update on Raven Guard Project --> nill :)
Too busy taking care of my kids.

That's it for this week. Thank you for reading.

Raven Guard Rhino - WIP

I hate painting vehicles, walkers and all large scale models. But there's no use complaing but to do it. And I have 9 vehicles (1 Razorback, 2 Rhinoes, 2 Predators, 1 Whirlwind/Predator, 2 Drop Pods and a Crusader) to paint for my Raven Guard. They are all currently in Pitch Black colour.

So i take one of my Rhinoes and begin painting. This is what i have achieved so far.

vs The 2nd Company Ultramarines

Sukai asked me for another game yesterday. The last time I fought him was using my Shrike's build vs his Eldrad list. It ended in a draw due to my mistake in the final round.

My guess is he will bring either his Eldar again (for payback) or his Ultrmarines (He just love his Calgar :) ). This time i wanna try different playstyle and so i choose Kantor instead to lead my Raven Guard.

Master Hafiz Samah - count as Kantor
5 Honour Guards in Razorback
10 Man Tacticals - Plasmagun, Lascannon, PFist & CombiMelta
10 Man Tacticals - Plasmagun, Lascannon, PFist & CombiMelta
10 man Assault Squad - TH&SS
10 man Assault Squad - TH&SS
Predator - Lascannon Sponsons
Predator - Lascannon Sponsons
Predator - Lascannon Sponsons

When he arrived at 7.00 pm, I saw that he brings his Ultramarines. But no Calgar this time. Instead, it was Cato Sicarius and his 2nd Company.

The Ultramarines 2nd Company:
Cato Sicarius
Ortan Cassius
5 Terminators - CycloneML
5 Assault Terminators - 2 LC, 3 TH&SS
10 Tacticals - Meltagun, Lascannon, Tank Hunters (in Rhino)
10 Tacticals - Plasmagun, Missile Launcher
10 Tacticals - Flamer, Missile Launcher (in Rhino)
Land Raider

Game: Seize Ground (5), Dawn of War

i. LR survived 4-6 LC per turn unscathed. Luckily, my Sargeant manage to destroyed it on turn 4 with his Combi-Melta;
ii. Honour Guards destroyed by Sicarius and Cassius.
iii. Cassius vs Master Apis.. Master Apis wins!!
iv. Sicarius vs Master Apis!!.. Master Apis Victorius!!

Result: RG Win 2-0

Victory Unto Death!!

Mechanizing My Raven Guard

I finally have enough tanks for my Raven Guard. 1 Razorback, 2 Rhinoes, 2 Predators and a Whirlwind.
The Whirlwind is taken from my World Eaters Legion's Predator. When in need, it can undergo weapon swap into the 3rd Predator.

My Raven Guard
Raven Guard is a chapter that excels in guerilla warfare, in scare tactics, in reconnaisance and sabotage. It is true and nothing but the truth in there. But there is another side of the story about the Raven Guard. There is more to Raven Guard than just Scouts, Drop Pods, Jumpacks and Lightning Claws.

Deliverance, the home planet of The Raven Guard Chapter has the capacity of a small forgeworld. It has the capacity to produce all these wonderfull weapons and tanks. As an Army General, isn't it weird for me to not utilised all these wonderfull resources?

In a battle, my Raven Guard strikes hard from the very beginning. Before the battle, Captain Ahmad Sharji lead his band of infiltrators deep into the enemy lines. Waiting for the dawn, when it was the best moment to strike.

As soon as The Blessed Brother Kumbang landed in his Drop Pod, Captain Ahmad Sarji and his Jumpackers will hit hard on the enemy's weakest element. This will draw the attentions away from the Rhinoes that suddenly came out of their concealment, bearing the Tactical Squads. The 2nd Assault Squad and Attack Bikers close behind.

Meanwhile, missiles after missiles shots came out of nowhere into the enemy line, pinning the infantries and further adding to the confusion. And to the eyes of the doomed enemy, multiple green streaks of Lasscannons can be drawn from far away, blasting their tanks and APC into charred remains.

When it work, the battle usually ended fast. Just nice for the Subuh prayer :)

That is how my RG works.

3 fun games, but no pics?

My battery went out, so no pic to show. I played 3 fun games, 2 with my Raven Guard and a fantasy game with my DE.

1st game : Raven Guards vs Orkses
Mission : Annihilation, Dawn of War
- Shrike + 20 Assault Marines (2 TH&SS) charged 8 Nobz (2 PK, 1 Painboy) + Warboss. Result: Dead Shrike and 13 other marines. Only 2 nobz dead.
- Lone Assault Sargeant fought 5 Nobz+Warboss in the 3rd round of combat. He survived 4 normal and 6 PK attacks!!
Result : RG has 2 Preds and 2 Tacticals Squad left while the orkses, a Warboss and 4 Nobz. But still, RG lost by 1 killpoint.

2nd Game : Dark Elves vs Tzeentch-Khorne Chaos list (Joe's)
Highlights :
- Joe's roll sucks bad. 1 and 2 all the way early in the game. That greatly reduced the effectiveness of his heavy magic army.
- My roll was too good to be true. They are damn high even in Leadership test. i failed almost all my psychology test and test for rally. Even my Lord and Cold One Knights failed their stupidity check at the most crutial turn
- My CC Assasin single handedly took out 5 man Maruder horsemen (1st turn charge) , 3 man Khorne Knights (2nd Turn) and another 3 man Chaos Knights (4th Turn). Hatred + Rune of Khaine + Killing Blow rocks!!
- Gateway is a scary magic. Casted on 15+, and Joe never rolled a misscast in all 6 turns, on the 5th turn Joe used that magic to send my Assasin and a unit of 5 Shades (who finally succeed to rally)to oblivion.
- In the end The Chaos Horde was pushed to just the High Sorcerer and 2 Marauder horsemen.
Result : A minor victory for the Dark Elves

3rd Game : Raven Guard vs Eldar (Jain Zar & Eldrad)
Mission : Seize Ground (3 Obj), Spearhead
Highlights :
- Shrike + 10 Jumpackers infiltrate and cause havoc in the eldar enemy lines. It took both Jain Zar's squad and Eldrad's Dire Avengers to finally end the chaos and slay Shrike.
- 10 man Dire Avengers with Defend, Shimmershield and fortuned.. Damn keras!!
Result : Raven Guard win controlling 2 objectives. The Eldar hold none.

I really need to get a new battery pack for my cammera.

RG vs Eldar

Play vs Sukai's Eldar last night. This is my RG forces:
Dread MMelta (drop pod)
10 Tacticals Plasmagun, Lasscannon, PF&CombiMelta (Rhino)
10 Tacticals Plasmagun, Lasscannon, PF&CombiMelta (Rhino)
10 Jumpacks TH&SS
10 Jumpacks TH&SS
2 Attack Bikes MMelta
Predator Autocannon, Lasscannon Sponsons
Predator Autocannon, Lasscannon Sponsons

Mission: Capture and Control (Eldar go 1st)
Result: I am one inches away from the winning objective. It's a draw.

I like this list. Not enough vehicles though and need to use my WE Rhinoes and Preds. Still waiting for the shipment of my 2 Rhinoes to arrive. Then, I'm thinking to get 2 Predators to complete the list.

Did testplay the TH&SS for Assault Sargeant and fell in love with them instantly. I'll keep them in the list for now.

RG record: 2 wins, 1 draw

The Inquisition Wars - Aftermath

It is finally over. The war between the two Inquisitor is finally over. The Reds has triumphed over the Black ones. And my World Eaters has played a large role in bringing down the Black Inquisitor.

It was quite funny actually. When i made this tourney list, i was aiming for a fun and fluffy World Eaters list. I also drop my 2 Daemon Princes just because i want people to see my lovingly crafted Winged Lord Ammar.

Even at a glance, people can see straight away that this isn't a very strong list. And the loses I suffered during playtest just shows that my list belongs to the middle tier.

Lord Ammar's Eastern Barbaric Skullcrusher

1st Game : VS. Ceiran's CSM
My 1st opponent was Ceiran's Khornate Army.
I was the Defender and he, the Attacker. We fought untill turn 6 and I manage to kill/destroy everything in his army except his Terminator Lord who is hiding inside his Land Raider. I only lost my Termies, Oblits and a Dakka Pred.

Result : WE win 16 - 5

2nd Game : VS Iz's Mad Mobz
My 2nd game was against the Defending Champion - Warboss Iz's and his mad mobs of bullies. I never had a chance to fight him before and suddenly it happened, in a tourney. Just look at those Nobz Bikers, 9 of them!!
Iz won the 1st turn but gave it to me, so in the 1st turn i decided to forget about the mission. I moved all my key units into the stonehenge, as close as possible to his bikers and the Ard Boys (led by Mad Doc Grotsnik). It was an open challenge, a challenge that the proud Warboss cannot run away from.
"the battle at the Stonehenge"

Lord Ammar, 24 Berserkers, 8 Khorne Raptors
Warboss Grimfang and 9 Nobz Bikers, Mad Dok Grotsnik and 30 Ard Boyz, Snikrot and his Commandoes
Result: World Eaters WIN!!!

By the 3rd turn, Iz conceded the game after losing all his key units. Not to mention, his Gretchins (in reserve) failed to come in (prolly ran away after watching their great Warboss slain in battle is my guess heheh). In the end, I still have all my units except for the Lord and 2 Rhinoes.

Result : WE win 18 - 6

3rd Game : VS. Saim Han
After our mishap that hobby night, Khairul and me was destined to fight in tourney. I hate fighting Eldar, my army cannot handle the mobility of Eldar and this is proven in my testplay at GC where i lost 2 games vs Eldar.

Much worst, this list has Eldrad, and he seized the Initiative. Truly the worst case scenario.

2 of my Rhinoes were Wrecked in the 1st turn and that greatly demoralised me. But i just keep on playing as usual, runing my Berserkers (in between ruins) towards the Eldar. Luckily for me, Khairul tends to make a lot of mistake (some are big enough mistakes) and I use that to my advantage and grab my 3rd win.

In the end, only a Prism and a Falcon (Saim Han) survive the game while i only lost a Lord and 3 Rhinoes.

Result : WE win 18-6

In the end, I was placed 3rd under my brother, Din, and the New Grandmaster - Sujin (All hail the Grandmaster!!). I lost by Appearance (6/9 points) and Sportsmanship (3/9 points).

It was a great event. Ave Legio!!

Din's Space Hulk Boarding Party (Blood Angels)
- remember that Dante? :)

The very 1st..

The servants of the Star Gods, the soulless Necrons are my very first army. It all begin waaay back in 2004, thanks to my brother Din.

The centre Wraith is the very first model i painted in this hobby. Followed by the other two, These Wraiths are the very first full squad i painted. I was very new to this hobby and was so unskilled with the brush. My idea was to give a very ghostly robotic look to the Wraiths which ended pretty good for a noob :lol: Done with the 3 Wraiths, i proceed to the core of the Necron army, The Necron Warriors. After painting a few models, i got bored and decide to have a try at some conversion work. The model below is my very first conversion. I have converted 4 more warriors before i was satisfied and decided to continue with the painting. Quite nice eh.. firing gauss blaster with one hand :)
My Necrons have been out of the spotlight for a very long time. Guess i should post something about them every now and then to keep the engine warm enough untill the new codex arrive.


Solution : Play Both!!

Okay, I've made up my mind... I will keep my Raven Guard.. and if it happens that I wanna play SW, I'll play them as a SW 3rd Founding Chapter - Clan Blackhawks instead :)

Of course i'll keep them WYSIWYG for both armies. Like these models below, they'll be the Clan Blackhawk's Grey Hunter with Mark of The Wulfen.
Clan Blackhawk's Wulfen paying tribute to their ancestors.. The 13th Co. Wulfen

Besides the four Wulfen above, I have 2 more unpainted wulfen. Do call me if you want them for your own SW army.

Now back to my RG, i manage to grab a game last Saturday with my Raven Guard. Played against Andy's Eldar, this time lead by Yriel and Eldrad.
Mission : Annihilation (1750pts)
Deployment : Pitch Battle, RG goes 1st
Result : RG wins by 5 - 4 = 1 kill point

Dilemma : RG or SW?

A Space Wolves with the Mark of Wulfen. But if you see carefully, He has the Raven Guard insignia on his shoulder pad. How come?
Actually, I am currently at a dilemma. I fell in love with RG back in the last codex because they are CC-based army. They can have up to 6 Jumpack squads and all units may take furious charge. Being a CC fan like i am, it was a very interesting army to build and play with. But then came the new codex, and all they have is "Fleet" which i dont want. Yes they are fast, but to what end? They are fast but lack the punch to deal the blow. And the option for CC punch is in the Vanguard, which to me is unplayable due to their high point cost.

Now came the new Space Wolves codex. And I saw once again, an opportunity for a good CC-based army. But i dont wanna go buy new minis since i dont have the time to assemble and paint them. Should i forsake my RG, and repaint them as SW?? Or should I keep them as Raven Guard, but play them using the SW codex??

In preparation for the Inquisition Wars

Last weekend was a blast! I had 5 games in total and all of it was fun. Knowing this was my only chance to play untill the tourney, i decided to have a go with my list. To see if my slightly fluffy list can still cause some havoc or not. My list is as follow:

Lord Ammar - Wings, Daemon Weapon, Combi-Melta
5 Terminators - MoKhorne, 4 CombiMelta, 1 HeavyFlamer, 1 Chainfist
8 Berserkers - Powerfist (in Rhino with Dirge Castor)
8 Berserkers - Powerfist (in Rhino)
8 Berserkers - Powerfist (in Rhino)
8 Raptors - MoKhorne, 2 Meltas, 1 PFist
Predator - Autocannon, HBolter, Havoc Missiles
Predator - Autocannon, HBolter, Havoc Missiles
2 Obliterators

The 1st game was in Friday at Legio. I fight a guy I never met before. His name is Izwan and he plays Black Legion. His plays Abbadon & Kharn list.
Mission : Annihilation
Deployment : Pitch Battle (see below), WE go 1st
Result : Black Legion annihilated on turn 5

I was supposed to play my 2nd game against a Saim Han army. Waited for 2.5 hours and then learned that the player had to play against Iqbal. I was quite dissapointed but what to do.. Eldar with their mindtricks.. I went back that night and pray for more games tomorrow.

The next day (Saturday @ GC).. The 1st game was against a very problematic army for my WE. It was a skimmer list. 4 Wave Serpent and 3 Falcon.
Mission : Seize Ground (4)
Deployment : Spearhead (See below), WE goes 1st
Result : Eldar win by 1 objective (turn 7).

3rd game was against Karim's Eldar. Too bad the boy need to go back early so we had to stop on turn 5. Else the result would be different.
Mission : Seize Ground (4)
Deployment : Spearhead (See below), WE goes 1st
Result : Eldar win by 1 objective.

Next is against Andy's Eldar.
Mission : Capture & Control
Deployment : Spearhead WE goes 1st
Result : WE win by 1 objective (turn 5).

On Sunday (@ GC) .. Finally I had the chance to go against the new uber Codex : Space Wolves. My opponent Syamil takes Njal Stormcaller to lead his army.
Mission : Capture & Control
Deployment : Spearhead (See below), SW goes 1st
Result : Draw (Turn 3).

It was a good fight for the Berserkers. But just when it was getting better and better, my opponent got to go. The picture below shows our Turn 3 (game ends). See how my WE are getting closer and closer. 2 more turns.. and the game is ours.
2 Wins, 2 Loses and a Draw. Not bad.. :)
WE Records: 7 Wins, 4 Loses, 2 Draws

Got myself a Razorback

Bought a Razorback from my brother Din, still NIB and sealed for RM90. It will be the ride for Captain Amir Amzah and his Command Squad.

Never played a Razorback before, so i don't know how they fare in games. 40pts is cheap enough for a transport with TL-HBolter. I'd say yes to that anytime.

About the weapon option, I think I would just stick to the HBolter. The other weapon options are just way too expensive for an AV11 vehicle. 25pts for a TL-HFlamer(??) and that is the cheapest. Maybe i'll add in a Storm Bolter or Hunter Missile to it for added punch.

Cpt Amir (155 pts)
Command Squad (185 pts)
Razorback (40 pts)
Total: 380 pts

OK lah tu kot.. What i need now is a Rhino or 2 for my Tactical Squads.

Vindicator for Sale!

This Vindicator has been around since those days when my brother (Din) plays the Iron Warriors. It was painted in the IW colours back then (By Dann if i'm not wrong). But even then, Din rarely play with it, prefering the Basilisk's Earthshaker Cannon compares to short ranged Demolisher Cannon. And this Vindicator sat there on the shelf for a very long time, collecting dust.
Back in the 3.5 CSM dex, my WE has no use for the Vindicator. But comes the 4.0 codex, i saw the Vindicator as a great assault vehicle to compliment my Rhinoes. Imagine 3 Rhinoes rushing forward, and a Vindicator in between throwing S10 shells. Nice.. But even my WE use the Vindicator only once in a while. It spent most of it's time inside the travelling box. I did spray it with the colour of the Blood God, but left the detailing for later.
For the last couple of weeks, I've been thinking to finish the Vindicator. I have even taken it out from the box. But then my wife deliver my twin, all the time i had for painting is spent looking after my babies.. It once again sit there on the shelf untouched.
Yesterday Din told me Vinder wants this Vindicator for his new SM army and wants me to post it here for Vinder to see. The picture below is for size comparison. It is slightly smaller than the current Rhino chassis. It is a metal model and a bit heavy. The chaos bits are all superglued to it, but since it is metal, taking it off and cleaning wont be a hard thing to do.
If it happens that Vinder dont want this Vindicator, it will be open for sale to all of you guys out there.
Chiow dulu bai..

Another Eldar host

On Sept. 26th (Saturday), i finally got my chance to go to GC. So i grab my WE bag and went for a game. There's quite a crowd in there but they are all either into Spacehulk, D&D, painting or plainly just hanging around for fun.

I asked around and finally got a game. Against a new player with his Eldar forces. His army was majority still under painting. He has enough models assembled for a 1750 game so we game in no time :).

Game: Secure and Control, Pitch Battle

World Eaters - Lead by Lord Ammar
Winged Lord - Stomped to death by a Warwalker :lol:
5 Termies
3x8 Berserkers
3 Rhinoes - 1 destroyed
2x5 Raptors
1 Lass-Pred - destroyed
2 Dakka-Pred - 1 Destroyed

Black Primed Eldar Craftworld
Banshees (in Serpent)
Dragons (in Falcon)
Dire Avengers (in Serpent)
2x10 Guardians - 1 unit flees
6 Jetbikes
2 Vipers (in a squadron) - 1 destroyed
2 Warwalkers - 1 destroyed

Turn 1: The table setup was biased towards the Eldar (I was the one who set it that way hahah). That red-shirt guy is my opponent. I go 1st and speed towards his line.
End of WE's Turn 2: Both Raptor Squads and Termies came too early. Predators pound one Guardian Squad, forcing the survivors to flee. Eldar circled around towards the left, aiming for my lone Lass-pred.
End of Eldar's Turn 3: 1 Lass-pred, 1 Dakka-pred, 1 Rhino destroyed. WE controlled both objectives.
End of WE's Turn 4: Lots of bad rolls, Lord Ammar fought a Warwalker and rolled 1 for his DW. Later he was stomped to death. WE controlled 2 objectives.
End of Turn 5 (End game): Eldar do what they always do in the 5th turn. Contest objectives. I see it long before it happens, but dont think the distance is enough for him to reach both objectives. Failing that, i believe i can win in Turn 6. But then the game ended with a roll of 1.
Result: The game ended in a draw.
Lesson learned: Try to avoid wrong judgement.
WE record: 5 wins, 1 draw, 2 loses.

I am a father!!

It was on September 18th, 2009, Friday at 11.03a.m. , my wife gave birth to a girl. Later at 11,28a.m. another baby was born. This time, a boy. The girl was named Alya (Height) Batrisyia (Intelligent/clever) and the boy Ammar (Strength of faith) Bakhtiar (Happiness).

From left - Alya & Ammar

From now on, Lord Aslan is no more. He is now Lord Ammar.

Happy Aidil Fitri!!

Selamat Hari Raya to all!!

For all the mistakes i've done, all the wrongdoings, all the things coming out of mouth which is not nice, all the arguments during games, all the TAs (lol), and everything..

Maaf Zahir & Batin.. My sincere apology from the very bottom of my heart.

Drive safely..

What? The car? Yes.. i painted it myself. Boltgun metal followed by a layer of Tamiya Smoke :lol:

WE Terminator Lord Graviax (CMON)

This is by far, the coolest WE Lord I have sver seen. In fact, the coolest model in Terminator Armour.

I found this almost a year back. Since then, this model has been my inspiration to go better myself in this hobby.

Truly a masterpiece.

Me and my World Eaters

I have been playing the World Eaters for 5 years now. It all began when i found 2 boxes of Berserkers under my bed. They belongs to Din, I was (at that time) living in his house. I already have a Necron army that time, but i don't Necrons are my style. I prefer Close Combat more than anything else. Necrons are just not belong to that category. Din allows me to have those Berserkers and so began my descent into the Realm of Khorne.

As with all of His champion, I struggled much to make my WE live up to their reputation. It was hard, the Blood Frenzy almost makes the army unplayable. My list During the early years is as below:

8 Possesed of Khorne Powerfist, Rage o Khorne (Rhino)
8 Berserkers (Rhino) Powerweapon
8 Berserkers Powerfist, Rage
8 Bloodletters
total: 1.5k

I lose almost all my games. It was very disencouraging to go forward. The worst defeat is when i fought this boy Kareem. I lost and then only we all learned that the boy was using a 1k list. I was a laughing stock for months. I quit playing WE for a while due to that and concentrate on my Necrons which was having a stream of success, even reaching Finals in GC Tourney (where i lose to Din).

But once again, i longed for brutal close combat actions. Which brings me back to my WE. I do some research and later learned about "The Red-tide". It involes utilising very aspect of Blood Frenzy for total anihilation, or simply annihilated. All this time i've been trying to control the Blood Frenzy, and i was shown the error of my way. I must completely accept the gift of Blood Frenzy, fully accept the gift of the Blood God. There is no gray area in the realm of Khorne, there is either Red.. or nothing at all.

And the next time i brought my WE, my list is as follows:
Daemon Prince with Speed, Armour, Aura, Resilience & 2 CCWeapon
16 Berserkers + Spawn PWeapon, DChain, Talisman of Burning Blood
16 Berserkers + Spawn PFist, Rage, ToBB
5 Bloodletters
5 Bloodletters
Dakka Pred

The list is a very fast-moving list. Talisman of Burning Blood ensures that my Berserkers always move more than 6 every turn. Deployed as fast as possible to enemy lines, they can reach the enemy during the 2nd turn (if luck permits). All the meanwhile, my Daemon Prince speeds towards enemy from the flank. And then came the Daemons..

I remember my very 1st game was vs Dann's Legion of The Damned. It was a very rare day when Rizal came to GC.. I remember Rizal have a look at my army and say how my Berserkers are so dead, facing Defilers and Leman Russes without any cover (It was in fact the truth of the situation). And then it ended ... I can still remember the sweet taste of victory when it is all finally over. The Red-tide has won!! It is truly the way favoured by Khorne.
(note: Dann challenges me later and he won the 2nd game :). But i cares not).

Since that day, i have fought countless of battles with my Red-tide, sometimes lost, but mostly a win. It was either win big, or lose big. But every game was as fun as the next. The best game was definitely against Warlord Nikolork's Green-tide.. Green Tide vs Red Tide. No-one remembers the number of attacks we delivered that day, but it reaches close to a thousand!! And our poster decorated the wall of GC for years to come....

Then came the new Codex..

...to be continued.

Home Sweet Home

My office was decorated by the supporting staffs for the Merdeka Celebration. There was quite a few leftovers meterials that interest me much. I know i can come up with something using the leftovers.

So last night, after finishing another Firedrakes, i decided to have a break from painting and built this ruin of a house. I am greatly satisfied with the result as you can see below..

The eldar can't help themself to try out the new ruins..
Now what it need is a paintjob. I need to go and buy some spray. Adios.

Fire Dragons

I am quite bored of painting marines already. Luckily there's some eldar models to paint. It was Din's Firedrakes for his Eldarbots. He is currently painting his Eldarbots for the November RTT. But we were afraid that he couldn't finish before time, so i agreed to finish some of his models. Some more, he don't know how to paint good yellow. My WE are fully painted and ready, so i better help him.

Here are they, 5 Firedrakes lead by Exarch with Firepike.
I take this opportunity to try out new painting method for the eyes. I don't know what they call it, but i've seen it a few times over the Net. I like the result very much.
6 Finish. 9 more Firedrakes to go.. :)

Winged Lord

I always liked the idea of a winged Lord. In the CSM FAQ, it was mentioned that that a winged Lord still count as infantry instead of jump infantry. The gift of wings simply allows the Lord to move as jump infantry, but he will still count as infantry for all other purpose. Which means that he can still ride inside a Rhino. Yeay!! The only drawback is that it must be WYSIWYG. The Lord MUST have a wing on his back, no jumpack "count as" wings or something.

So i decided to make a winged Lord for my World Eaters. And after a week, i give you all..

Lord Aslan of The World Eaters :

Prince Akkarin - Finally

-Daemon Prince of Khorne-
Prince Akkarin has slaughtered countless enemies for the Skullthrone. From lowly nurglings to mighty Asurmen, The Phoenix Lord of Dire Avengers to the mighty Baneblade of the Emperor. His big black sword - Zikryl - forever hungry for more blood.
He had died so many times by counltless methods mostly from cowards who only knows to kill from afar. Each and everytime, Khorne willed him to live and continue spreading chaos across the universe. Never shall he know sleep until Khorne Himself is no more.
