I was wondering, are there any W40K players on here from Jakarta, indonesia? I have a nephew living over there and I am going to send him some bits with the idea of trying to get him interested in it. I've painted up a few models and will send him some to get started on.

I was wondering if there is anyone over there who plays/models etc?

Thanks for the information, he is just reaching that age where they star to get interested in that kind of thing.

We did visit a shop in Jakarta when my wife and I were over there earlier in the year, I forget what it is called off the top of my head but it is the one advertised in WD.

Trolly, I have sent you a PM.
Fortunately the family do not live near to where the bombs went off this time. However if you remember a few years back when the Bali bombing happened, it was a little worrying that my wifeand I were there in that place where they exploded only a few days before it happened. You can never tell nowadays but I did find that rather disquieting.

On a W40k note where bombers are concerned, I remember that in RT days we used to have penal troops or something that were Human Bombs. I do still have the models and thought they might make a comeback with the new IG codex. Perhaps however that was a step too far, as this srt of thing is just not politically correct at the moment and I don't think GW would want the adverse publicity it may cause.
