Good Tidings from Bangkok

Hi all, as of 27th September 2011, my wife successfully delivered our Triplets into the real world. The babies are slightly premature, being born only at 7 months but perfectly healthy. My wife is doing great and recovering from a C-Section operation and going to be discharged with a clean bill of health. The babies will be staying in the hospital for awhile until they are big enough to come home. Oh, our triplets consists of 1 boy followed by 2 girls. So I'd figured whoever came out first will be the elder sibling even though only a fraction of few minutes.

The babies names are:

1) Raees Aqeel bin Mohamad Faizal (boy)
2) Soraya Nuha binti Mohamad Faizal (girl)
3) Sophia Nadine binti Mohamad Faizal (girl)

I'm proud to say that I'm the first triplet dad among many of my relatives and friends. But with a big bundle comes great responsibility (and stress!!) so hope you guys can pray for our babies well being and wishing me luck as a first time daddy. I guess hobby and wargaming have to take a back seat for awhile and I'll try to post as soon as I have the time do so. Anyways enjoy all your hobbying and wargaming and I'm sure going to miss it for the time being. But hey I got better things to do now, raising the kids!

Till then laters...

Night Lords Revisited

I think I'm going a tad too fast with my Pre Heresy Space Wolves project and decided to take a break from it. Had a game with my BA based Night Lords army last weekend with a Dark Eldar army and they performed extremely well (will post a bat rep if I have the mood) But when I looked back at my Night Lords, I don't know, something was amiss. Then I realised I wasn't really happy with the paint job on some of the models particularly the Atramentar Terminators. They lacked 'drama' and looked dull. I know I was aiming only tabletop quality but it seems they're not up to the standards I'm looking for. So 'editing' the Termies are the logical thing to do.

Currently I don't have a representation of one of the Atramentar's champion, namely champion Malek. I had a spare unused Space Wolf Terminator and decided to use to represent Malek. As you can see in the picture below, he's wielding a Thunder Hammer as per the novel. I purposely made the model a dirty with snow dirt, scratched armor and grisly trophies and also appeared freshly killed a Blood Angel marine. I like how the base turned out for my SW project and decided to use for my NL as well.

Here are more pictures of the 'edited' Atramentars.

I've built and started painting another Talos model but this time without a Jump Pack. I've to tweaked my army list a bit after a few rounds and found out that he's more suitable leading the Atramentars rather flying around with the Raptors. The prospect of getting shot at and die early in the game compared to the rest of the NL doesn't really appeal since he's the prophet and all. So now he will lead the Atramentars aboard the Night Stalker (Storm Raven). Below is the current look after a heavy wash of Citadel washes. I will post more pics once I finish painting it.

So that's it from for now. To all Night Lords fans, Ave Dominus Nox!

Vlka Fenryka - Wolf Guard Terminators

Right, after almost 2 weeks of Hari Raya celebration (though not so merry in Bangkok) and food gluttony, its time to get back to the gym and of course, HOBBY! As the tittle entails, it's the Wolf Guards turn this time. I managed to finish painting 3 WG couple of days ago. Check out the pics below.

This will be my Wolf Guard Terminator pack lead by Sigurd Wolfbane (the guy with the Thunder Hammer) For a 1000 points army, I'm fielding 4 of them as a bodyguard for Ulvuruth Longfang or for the Wolf Lord. I'll update more once I finished painting the remainder of the WG.

Sigurd Wolfbane

In the next post, I will continue with the Grey Hunters and one remaining WG. Well, I have nothing more to add. Comments are welcome. Till then laters..
