An interesting experience.... my entry into Malaysia's Gundam Builders World Cup won two prizes. Best Creative and Modifications and New challenger Award. Not expecting anything when submitting the entry. But was pleasantly surprised.

The thing i learnt about Gundam modellers is their attention to detail and their perseverance is something that miniature hobbying needs. While gamers will say "but we're playing a game." I believe that that is not the spirit of the hobby the hobby should be about the love of building and fielding a fully painted army in all its glory.

This is where the problem lies "THE GAME". After spending month painting an army you get ur ass handed to you on the table (I've experienced it) and it hurts. All your effort and love and patience gone in the roll of the dice. It is in my opinion that the love for the painting part the hobby is lacking here. Everyone just wants to whoop ass. Which is fine it is a game after all. You should want to win. But respect your opponent put up a painted army. Not some pieces of plastic or resin or white metal on an upturned base.

Well I know thing won't change. I believe we're in the twilight years of the hobby. The "ME" Generation is just not into taking time to create something unique.

Anyway that's all for my rant. :P


  1. Congratulations, dude! Agree with you on a lot of your points, which is why you should come to Legio Hobby Nights more often :) We need more like minded souls like yourself dude!

  2. thanks all. :D
    @jeff wish i could but with new baby n me doing night duty all i can do is stay home n paint :(

  3. Congratulations bro.. Those words are so true.

  4. So true, I sometimes feel like I'm the only one painting entire armies and not having a single game with them. I put the painting aspect of this hobby in the forefront.

    Congrats on the win too!
