Gameforge Island of Fire tournament : we iszzzzz best paintedszz :)

That's right folks!!! The Lizardmen of the Wildhost cometh...and we conquereth!!!
Just the painting part of the competition though ;)

That's Rueben, the event organizer handing out my prize which was actually a shop voucher worth RM75.
And that's Doc selvam in the background, the generous and hensem sponsor for the painting prizes.

We also managed to tie for 3rd placing overall but missed out on more loot by victory points count. 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 lost was not a bad showing by the slow Initiative 1 Lizardmen. How i loved the expression on my opponents faces when i informed that my saurs scar vet would be hitting first on Initiative 10 from the gold sigil sword hehehe. Initiative 10!!! How is that/really/errr!!! Good laughs all around.

It was nice to have won the best painted army I must admit. All those nights spicing up the lizardmen was worth it in the end. It was even nicer because the best painted army was decided by players voting. So in essence i got the people's choice award. Warm fuzzy feeling being acknowledged by your peers and friends :)

I had a great time and played against some very fun and upstanding gentlemen. I forgot to take pics of my 3rd, 4th and 5th opponent coz i was on a 2 win record then and forgot all about it heheh. First round, would u believe it ...i met.....
And second round....

My last game against Kang and his chaos warriors was truly memorable. It was a story of 2 halves. Unfortunately he got the better of the 2nd half and TAed me. He was eventually the 3rd best. Thanks for the game man!!

Special thanks to Rueben and his crew for organizing the event. Gameforge Penang for hosting it. All my 5 opponents who were truly fun to play against. Special mention to Peter, my fourth round opponent, whose 3 winged horses didn't exactly look like they were flying....more like crashing to the ground hehehe. Shame on you man :P

Super duper kudos to Wood elf Lord Iqbal for winning the event. More of his exploits on the Legio site.

I leave you with Scar-Locke and his mighty warband who won the best painted honor for the Wildhost.
Truly you guys were from the blessed 7th spawning of the 7th spawning :)
 Cheers everyone :)

Sd Kfz 234/2 Puma panzerspah platoon I completed

These guys took forever to finish :) Plus being away for the past 4 days on holidays didn't help the situation much. The vehicle in the center is the company command vehicle which i showed in the last post. I won't be showing individual vehicle pics coz if you've seen one puma then you've seen them all. I'm maxing out on pumas for this list so in the end i'll be having 13 recon vehicles with ROF 2 and anti-tank 9. This should scare the living daylights out of any soviet tank commanders come May when the Bagration campaign starts :)

The second platoon will also have  6 vehicles but a three color scheme which i'll post up soon. Not sure why the pic is kinda grainy. Also i think i over-did on some of the exhaust smoke residue on certain vehicles. Another thing i need to post in the future....a review of MIG flames of war pigments. They're just too good and easy to use :)
As you can see, i got carried away with puma 11. Another six to go then i need to start building the another platoon that i'm dying to start on. Plus i have a project to start this month with Jeff.......sighhhh where did the time fly.....

So many projects and so little time....

Cheers everyone :)
