Post before LVO


Been a fun week too - wife lost her grandma - work has been full of what ifs and where I might move to change a position.  Fun stuff like that.  But I keep chugging along with some artwork and minis.  I got LVO coming in a few days - I suspect I will go 4-2 with my KDK death star list I talk about on Monday at BOLS.  Besides that I am preparing an AOS army based off of Tzeentch.  It should be fun and the games I have played have been a heck of a lot more enjoyable then some of the nonsense 40k throws at me.  It leaves me with high hopes for 8th edition for sure.

Let's see - paint list - and then some minis

Me
Finish the rest of the Triumph thingie - the Saint is up next
Building a Tzaangor Shaman to paint
Maybe build something else - but most likely go back to focusing on client work
Artwork for some people as well

Nick
GS Cult - got a crap ton of minis built for me to paint up

Ryan
Finish off this Space Wolf lot - got a few more regular guys to finish up

Travis
Finish off this  Cryx order as well - got some bird things primed up to do this week before I leave

Luis
Infinity for days

Josh
Final bits of the Silver tower

I went with a KDK death star list as it means less summoning and a bit more board presence.  I know the table are going to be full of crappy brimstone conversions and other nonsense.  It does make me wish I figured out a good way to bring the Grotti along as he could just make units disappear with his stinky booty.  Oh well.

I know I will finish this Death Guard army as Mortarion is coming most likely and I just need to get some more Rhinos.  I found all my converted Autocannon havoks so I might just repaint them white to match and have me off to the races.  It will look neat and most likely play for fun.  I think that is most likely how I will play most 40k in the coming months.  Will see.

Alright enough of this - next time will be an LVO battle report - most likely with me ending my time watching AOS and trying to get on their live cast.

Final normal biked sorcerer - with force sword.

3rd Chariot of Tzeentch - bah summoning is so annoying.

He is coming for ya - arms are magnetized for ease of play.



This guy wasn't hard to build - a pain to build.  Removed the tiny back skull floating thing cuz that broke as I built it and I broke it again awhile painting it.  Paint it in at least 3 parts - body, arm and fat bootie.

Woot another post



A bit of a fast one.  Last week lost the brother so the painting I have been doing has been more personal to help me break through this sad time.  Hopefully the next post will have more customer stuff as I knock those things out the park.  With that - lets do the paint list and then my current LVO list.

Me
Burning Chariot 2 - it is built, magnetized and I need to do another one
Pick the 4 Daemon princes I want to take and clean them up -
Work on Death Guard - 3 bikes, 2 rhinos, another character
BOLS article on the Cadia book
Dream about the Tzeentch stuff in the new AOS book

Greg

Woot some lists real quick

DP, MoT, Wings, Lvl 3, Gift of Mutation
DP, MoT, Wings, Lvl 3, Gift of Mutation
DP, MoT, Wings, Lvl 3, 10 PT Staff - Force etc

Small, basic - has decent WC to summon and I can throw out chariots all game.  Will see what kind of spells I go for with the DPs - but I have access to have things that hurt the Tetrad.  Good times.

Next list is my current Death Guard Build - it is almost done too.

Death Guard Vectorium thingie
Warband
Chaos Lord, Bike, Sigil, MoN, VoTLW, Powerfist, Lit Claw
Sorcerer, Bike, MoN, VoTLW, Lvl 3, Force Axe, Spell Familiar
Terminators X 3, Combi-Melta X 3, MoN, VoTLW, Power Axe X 3
CSM, MoN, VoTLW, Meltagun, Combi-Melta, Meltabomb, Rhino, Dirge Caster
CSM, MoN, VoTLW, Meltagun, Combi-Melta, Meltabomb, Rhino, Dirge Caster

The question I ask - would a second lord be better over another MoN Sorcerer?  I can get up to -3 T with this set up which isn't too bad.  Bah - this is what I am currently building towards so will see.  It looks fun.

Ok onto some models before I finish building some Space Wolves.


Didn't want his booby armor - so big man chest it is.

Had this guy for awhile - he will be exalted sorc or new AOS guy - woot woot.



Counts as Terminators for Death Guard


Mr. Hugs a lot.

Goatboy paints!


Woohoo!  I have been painting a lot still too - tons of commission work as usual.  A bit of artwork too for Frontline as well.  Overall not a bad bunch of stuff haha.

Christmas was alright - not to bad had some fun got some stuff and well I took the entire week off between Xmas and New Years eve.  It means I can knock out some work, have some good family time, and hopefully catch up on some shows.  Good times indeed.

Alright - lets get some paint list stuff.

Me

BOLS article for the new year
Maybe some Daemon stuff to see what to play for LVO

Nick
Dread Knight fix, GK libbie fix, some other stuff to fix
GSC

Luis

Travis
Cryx stuff!

Greg

Ryan

Josh

Alright some list thoughts - what I am messing with.

Death Guard - The Vectorium

Chaos Warband
Chaos Lord, MoN, VoTLW, Bike, Powerfist, Lightning  Claw, Sigil - Warlord
Chaos Sorcerer, MoN, VoTLW, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Chaos Terminators X 3, MoN, VoTLW, Combi-Melta X 3, Power Axe X 3
Chaos Space Marines X 5, Meltagun, Combi-Melta, Meltabomb, Rhino, Dirge Caster
Chaos Space Marines X 5, Meltagun, Combi-Melta, Meltabomb, Rhino, Dirge Caster
Chaos Bikers X 5, MoN, VoTLW, Meltagun X 2, Power Axe
Helbrute, Perdus Rift Anomaly, Powerfist X 2

Aux
Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN

Lord of the Legion
Sorcerer, MoN, VoTLW, Bike, Spell Familiar, Level 3, Blight Grenades

Formation Detachment - Black Legion
Cyclopia Cabal
Sorcerer, VoTLW, Bike, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3
Sorcerer, VoTLW, Bike, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3
Sorcerer, VoTLW, Bike, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3

Basically you have 2 little stars - you could drop the Lord of the Legion Sorcerer for a Chaos Lord if needed - but it has a decent amount of casting - options to murder LoW stuff by the Cabal, and heck you could get up to -3 Toughness too with certain Nurgle Spells.  This could be helpful to remove things or at least neuter other Death Stars with multiple options to hurt them.  Of course it isn't the KDK thing but it looks like it could work out.

I could go all Nurgle Death guard - would probably put in a Raptor Talon in to help go get stuff.  I really like this World Eaters thought as it give you some options to go hurt stuff.  Basically you try to dump in 3-4 lords into an opponents army - the Raptor Talon comes and mops stuff up.

World Eaters Butcher Horde
Chaos Warband
Chaos Lord, MoK, VoTLW, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Lightning Claw, Sigil, Talisman of Burning Blood,  Gift of Mutation
Chaos Terminators X 3, MoK, VoTLW, Combi-Meltas, Power Maul X 3
Chaos Space Marines X 5, MoK, VoTLW
Chaos Space Marines X 5, MoK, VoTLW
Chaos Bikers X 10, MoK, VoTLW, Power Maul, Meltabomb
Helbrute, Perdus Rift Anomaly, Powerfist X 2

Lord of the Legion
Chaos Lord, MoK, VoTLW, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Lightning Claw, Sigil, Gift of Mutation

Aux:
Raptor Talon
Chaos Lord, MoK, VoTLW, Jump Pack, Axe of Blinding Fury
Raptor X 5, MoK, VoTLW, Meltagun X 2, Power Maul
Raptor X 5, MoK, VoTLW, Meltagun X 2, Power Maul
Raptor X 5, MoK, VoTLW, Meltagun X 2, Power Maul
Raptor X 5, MoK, VoTLW, Meltagun X 2, Meltabomb
Raptor X 5, MoK, VoTLW, Meltagun X 2, Meltabomb

Basically you try to set up that turn 1 Charge - and then you got Raptors to try and come down and help get stuff that is either pinging you from far away - or locking up some big GC that could be a problem.  Plus you have enough Meltaguns to hurt things as needed.  I went with Powermauls as it gives them strength 6 - which with Furious charge it means they have a chance to hurt things as needed.

Right now I am leaning towards this nonsense for LVO and the blast changes.  

Infernal Tetrad
DP, MoK, Wings, Armor of Scorn, Greater Gift X 2
DP, MoN, Wings, Lvl 2, Greater Gift X 2
DP, MoS, Wings, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2
DP, MoT, Wings, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2, Impossible Robe

The Omniscient Oracles
Fate weaver
Lord of Change, Lvl 3, Paradox, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift

Just 6 big fat FMC's flying around and causing issues.  It has 13-16 starting WC - has Paradox to get stuff off, and even Fateweaver to protect my ass.  This is simple to fly with - just need some stuff to summon and go from here.  Plus I have to redo one base to get this big FMC that I plan on using as my LOC.  Leaning towards this list as I don't need to work out a lot to get it going. 

This also looks fun and will probably be the first thing I start to test with - just need to get a few screamers done - which I have due to having some burning chariots and other things laying around.  Plus some old Metal screamers too.  I have so much random stuff.

Burning Sky Host
Herald, Disc, Lvl 3, Paradox
Screamers X 5
Screamers X 3 - 8 units

Renegade Knight
Renegade Knight
Renegade Knight

It should play fast as I don't really have much of a shooting phase - plus psychics don't matter to much.  I play vs a large amount of wyverns I will just hold all the screamers in reserve and deep strike em.

Now something different and probably terrible

Death Watch CAD
Librarian, Lvl 2, Angelus 
Veterans X 5, Storm Shields X 5, Drop Pod
Veterans X 5, Frag Cannon X 3, Drop Pod

Nemesis Strike Force
Librarian, Daemon Hammer, Lvl 3, Extra Spell Book
Purifiers X 10, Daemon Hammer X 1
Strike Squad X 5
Storm Raven, MM, Hurricane Bolters
Dread Knight, Incinerator
Dread Knight, Incinerator
Draigo

The thought is - the Death Watch guy comes in first - then a ton of GK to come in, strike hard, and hopefully murder stuff.  The Vets will get a 2+ Inv save as Draigo can land close enough to join.  You got to big bubbles of Cleansing flame - maybe 3 of them even with the Book helping rerolls.  It probably doesn't work but heck it is something to try out for fun.

Alright - enough list thoughts lets show some models and stuff.

Goatboy - I am still Alive and Painting a crap ton



Work just got in the way a bit with posting.  Writing a weekly article is hard and I don't have the time like I used to throw out some thoughts on this blog while at work.  I guess I just gots to do work haha.  But oh well - I do paint a lot haha.

Current paint list

Me
Finished 3 units of 3 screamers to finish off maybe army 1 for LVO
Maybe find a LOC like thing for Army 2 for Lvo
Maybe find time to build AOS army - yup messing with that game too
Work on BOLS article for Legions of Chaos Preview
Art for Frontline - 3 Banners for LVO - drawn just need to scan, photoshop etc
Work on Mat for Frontlines new line of battle mats.

Luis
Infinity stuff - 5 guys primed hopefully on Sunday

Nick R
Update some Grey Knights
Gene stealer Cult
More marine stuff - who knows

Travis
Cryx commission

Greg
FW Knight Aratapos

Ryan
SW Guys
and FW Leman Russ - exciting!

Josh
Silver Tower Miniatures!

Mike K
3 more marine as I got everything else done

I think that is it - I am sure there are some other things - some art and what not.  The month of November was nuts - family, life, etc - and I am hoping December lets me finish more things.

Alright - LVO list time

List 1 - need to paint more stuffs
Daemonic Incursion
Murder Horde
Herald
Flesh Hounds X 5 - 8 Units
Burning Sky Host
Herald, Disc, Lvl 3, Endless Grim book
Screamers X 3 - 9 Units
Lord of Change, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3, Paradox

Basically the LOC takes all change - cuz the Endless Grim says my warlord gets to get all change - I try to summon loads of Burning chariots.  If I get lucky the Herald gets Cursed earth or something.  Basically this is massed MSU death and I always have a play as I float around the table top.  It is similar to other lists - went with LOC as Fateweaver - while cute - just isn't as cool as a paradox throwing LoC.

The next idea is cuz of the new Formation from the Magnus book - the one that is Fateweaver and 1-3 LOC.  Mix this with Tetrad and you got 6 models of doom that summons more models.

Primary Formation
Tetrad
DP of Khorne, Wings, Armor of Scorn, Greater Gift X 2
DP of Nurgle, Wings, Greater Gift, Exalted Gift, Lvl 2
DP of Slaanesh, Wings, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP of Tzeentch, Wings, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Lvl 3, Impossible Robe

The Fate Weaver Formation
Fate weaver
Lord of Change, Lvl 3, Paradox, Greater Gift X 2

6 Models - lots of fun with the LOC throwing Paradox to summon stuff to get a ground game.  It is a thought to have him go down to lvl 2 - get Lesser Gifts on the LOC and the Khorne Prince - more thoughts.  Could also drop the Grim on the DP of Nurgle - go all greater Gifts.  This one is tempting as I can have a small case and fly with it easy - play with it easy and get a chance to have some rad models on the table top.  Heck I could do something similar with Magnus too - so many things to think about.

I still like the idea of 3 Renegade Knights with Skyhost - simple - elegant and you are all about going forward and crushing the enemy.  One can have a gun if I wanted - or I could drop some casting on the Herald and go with dual shooting or ML or the barrage one.

Gonna get some AOS time in too - my lists look like junk right now as I figure out what to play.  So far I am enjoying the game as it has an easy set of rules with movement being the big key in how good players get separated out.  Plus the idea that you have shifts of who goes first and second - choices in your combats, etc make for an interesting game.  Will see how much gets into 40k when 8th rears its head.

Some models to check out - there are a ton of them.

















Yup - now I have 3 good guy knights and 3 bad guy knights.
