Woot less THAN a month

And I painted a lot.  Lots of stuff - more stuff coming after this but hey I am never not done.  Basically finished my Death Guard army - might do a few things here and there.  Will see.  Got a Morty to build up - a Creature Caster Death Guy - and of course lots of commission work.

Lets get a list - then my new DG list and then a bunch of models to look at.

Me
Necrosis conversion
2 Illustration - drawn need to scan and color.  Weekend is me watching the kiddo a lot as the wife is doing a Church event - so that will be hard.
finish some terrain stuff I primed - shipping containers from Frontline
BOLS article X 2 most likely

Greg
2 Wyverns

Brandon
Roboute before next weekend
Some other stuffs

Luis
Infinity stuff - starting building more tonight

James
GK stuff

Bill
Last of the Tau stuff

And I am sure some other things here and there.  Lots of random stuff as usual.  Fun times indeed.

Let's dump out my current Death Guard List

Death Guard Battalion - aka the Fallen
Typhus
Daemon Prince, Wings, The Plate
Pox Walkers X 20
Cultists X 10
Cultists X 10
Noxious Blightbringer
Blight Lord Terminators X 10, Blight Axes X 6, Baleswords X 4, Combi-Plasma X 4, Blight Launchers X 2
Foetid Bloat Drone, Plaguespitters X 2
Foetid Bloat Drone, Plaguespitters X 2

Iron Warriors Battalion
DP, Wings, Slaneesh, Fleshmetal - Warlord
Sorcerer
Cultists X 40, Mark of Slaanesh
Cultists X 10
Cultists X 10

Idea is I can make a huge Pox Walker batch if I wanted too - have the middle holder that is the Blight Lord Terms with cloud of flies, and enough damage to be a pain in the ass.  It is all about taking the middle.  I think Necrosis is probably needed but who knows.  Still if I don't like this enough I can always play this pile of stuff once I finish Mortarion.

Super Heavy Detachment
Morty
Magnus
Knight with Double Battle Cannon and Long Range ML thing

Iron Warriors Battalion
DP, Slaanesh, Wings, Fleshmetal, Warlord
Sorcerer
Cultists X 40, Mark of Slaanesh
Cultists X 20, Mark of Nurgle
Cultists X 10

This one is easy - has some bodies and tricks.  Probably not the best but it might work.

Alright enough of that - models and we call it a night.

I am just awful



Its just hard to keep updated.  I am painting a lot - but work and kiddo and wife keep me from posting nearly as much.  I have to set up my time a bit better.  But for those even still reading this - and even interesting I will be doing a one day a week stream of painting etc.  It will be thru the BOLS channel and once I get it set up I am sure some of you will hear about it.  Watch me paint, get mad at models, and maybe answer some questions.  Will see.

Let's get a paint list together

Me
Death Guard work through - got an army idea - maybe it will work
Do some more Cultists cuz Chaos players could always use more cultists
2 Art pieces
Maybe another Editorial for BOLS

Luis
Infinity stuff - on doc to build Friday or so

Nick
30 Ratlings
Some Horse Guy conversions that look like GSC

Greg S
Some IG stuff

Mike K
More Marines to add to the mix of marine and sister stuff

Bill Souza
Finished current batch of Tau - yay!

James L
more GK stuff - the commission has begun!

I think that is it for now - finished the Big Knight and some other things since the last post - so a ton of Art, minis, etc is a coming.

List wise - I keep thinking some kind of Terminator based list might be good.  Mixing some stuff in and seeing if I can get it all worked out.  Utilizing a Cultist base either with an Iron Warriors Daemon Prince to keep them stuck - or maybe even Abbie himself.  Its all formulating in my head right now.  Might use a Death Guard Elite/FA thingie to get some Blightlord Terms and some Bloat Drones.  We shall see.  I am so far away from painting my own stuff right now too so meh.  I am sure this list thought will bubble up on BOLS at some point.

Iron Warriors Battalion
DP, Wings, Malefic Talons, Warp Bolter, Fleshmetal, Slaanesh: Delightful Agonies - 189
Sorcerer, Wings, Force Sword, Prescience, Warptime - 126
Chaos Terminators X 10, Power Axes X 10, Slaanesh - 445
Cultists X 35, Slaanesh - 140
Cultists X 10 - 40
Cultists X 10 - 40

Death Guard Outrider Detachment
Typhus
Blightlord Terminators X 10, Blight Axes X 10, Combi-Bolters X 10 - 448
Foetid Bloat Drone, Plague Spitters X 2, Plague Probe - 158
Foetid Bloat Drone, Plague Spitters X 2, Plague Probe - 158
Foetid Bloat Drone, Plague Spitters X 2, Plague Probe - 158

Its just a way to get some bodies on the table - have some back end support.  It doesn't feel great but it is an idea.  I like the idea of 20 bodies crashing in, doing some shoot and utilizing Vets of the Long war with Prescience.  I just don't know if it will do enough wounds.  I like not using reg Terminators and utilizing some kind of back body group from Iron Warriors or Alpha Legion might be better.  Plus you could figure a way to grab Abbie with maybe some Malefic lords?  Meh thoughts thoughts and more thoughts.

Ok enough of that - lets get to the explosion of Art and minis.
