Hobby Forge's Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition Celebration!

The 6th Edition 40K is just around the corner. Everything I heard about it so far has been to my liking. Damn excited to get my hands on the copy.

Anyway, Hobby forge is having a small event to celebrate the release. Here is the info taken from wargamersmalaysia.com.


Date : Saturday, 30th of June 2012
Time : 3:36pm

If Hobby Forge receives 33 pre-orders of Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition Hardcover Rulebook, the 33 people will receive the Psychic Power Deck worth around RM 50 or so for free!

This event is for those who pre-ordered the new Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition Hardcover Rulebook.

What are you supposed to do.
1. Collect your pre-ordered Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition Rulebook, and study it! (Do come at 12pm to start early.)

2. Exactly at 3:36pm (3+3=6, get it?), I will gather the crowd and ask 6 questions regarding the new rules! They may be easy peasy, or insanely difficult, it's random.
That's why you need to make sure you come early to read up the rules in the book!

3. The first person who answers gets a random gift from the new 6th Ed release (it may be the dice set, the objectives, the tokens, whichever).
One person may only win 1 gift and may not answer further questions. This is to give the others some chance to win too.

4. This short event shouldn't last more than 20 minutes, and it is meant to promote the fun and enthusiasm of the hobby for everyone in Hobby Forge.


According to Alvin, as of today, he already received 26 preorder. It means that there's only 7 more to go for us to get the psychic power decks for free (it costed around RM40 without tax). That easily equals to about RM1320++ savings for our local gaming community. That's huge if you ask me (especially since my car got involved in an accident just last week!)

So what are you waiting for? Call Alvin and order a copy for yourself!!!

Vargard Obyron

This Jedi is the best weaponmaster of the Necron race. A very good character especially when played along with the Nemessor. Makes people think twice when they wanna charge the Nemessor and whatever unit he is with. The Vargard special rules is just so awesome :-)

Same with the Nemessor, I've never played any game without this guy. The setup I've played him with so far are:
  1. Obyron + 20 Warriors + Lord (ResOrb)
  2. Obyron + 10 Gauss Immortals + Lord (ResOrb)
  3. Obyron + 5 Deathmarks + 2 Harbingers of Despair
Next time, I wanna try him with dedicated close combat units such as Lychguards or the Canoptek Wraiths.

Happy painting guys..
