Gameforge 40k combat patrol tournament
This was the first time i went to Gameforge and I must say that i'm very impressed with their establishment. Nice, clean environment, good stocks, reasonable prices. Was so so tempted to get stuffs for the new army but sensibility and logic prevailed plus the fact that i'd just dished out on a new battlefleet list the previous week. That's me in the green shirt thinking that i should buy the whole range of citadel paints.
I did buy 2 copies of the White Dwarf and a citadel fine brush before i left though.
The Gameforge guys were just amazing. Friendly and helpful, they made us feel comfortable from the moment we arrived. That's what customer service is all about. Esp after a four hours drive from Shah Alam and driving around Penang looking for the place. Well done guys!!!
I played 3 games. Lost the first to a space wolf patrol. Won the next against the tyranids then won my final game against the chaos mon-keigh. All my opponents were from Penang and each was a delight to play against. Its nice to know that Penang has a nice ready group of players. I'm told they used the 4th ed style of scoring so in the end i didn't know where i stood in standings. Not important since it definitely was not top 3.For my efforts i got a cool certificate from Gameforge.
Arzmi though was in the running for top honors until his Orcs met Peter's chaos mon-keighs. He lost and ended up in 3rd placing. With his prize winnings he bought the new Battle Mission book and much to my surprise gave it to me :) What can i can, brotherly love. I got your back, Bro!!!
A very big thank you to all the guys at Gameforge for organizing this tournament. It was fun and i'll try to come again with my 1750 saim-hann list soon. - excuse to buy models-
All in, it was a very nice road trip and i thoroughly enjoyed the company of Iqbal(my co-driver), Jeff(official humor guy) and Arzmi(who slept most of the time). Laughter was aplenty esp when you had a mat salleh along who knew the local lay. Didn't know we had cannibals in Malaysia till Jeff pointed it out. You learn something new everyday.
It was super FUN!!!
