Woohoo - Late Monday Post



I painted a crap ton this weekend.  Waiting on getting a new car to get a bunch of stuff for the baby - so I just spent it throwing paint on models.  I caught up and finished some commissions - so all in all a great weekend.  Woohoo.

Beyond that I have changed up some food diet stuff - had a bad doctor review that means I need to remove some things out of the diet.  It is good so far and I am feeling pretty good.  Plus my pants are fitting better - shirts seem to fit better.  And my goatee doesn't look like it is hiding all that chin sausage.  Hah.

I just ordered my bits to recreate some Space Wolf stuff.  It isn't a huge amount of models so it shouldn't take long to get them ready - plus it plays a Knight which sounds fun to me.  I just want to get that character to work - but might have to drop him down to a regular one.  Shit some of those new formations from Champs are strong as hell too for my own army designs.  It does seem to fit into - troops just don't matter that much anymore.  Now if other armies had more formations - sniff daemons please?

Let's go with the paint list real quick and then go from there.

Me
Article - not sure what I will do - might be a kind of - is this fast rules release worth it?  Benefits, bonuses, etc.
Nurgle Imperial Knight - a buddy is borrowing the 3 for the Nova so I need to get it done by this weekend.  I start building it tonight - legs got partway done.
Test Iron Priest.  I plan on going with each "thunder wolf" style unit in Goats to be different.  So all the Iron Priests look one way - all the Wolf Guard/Wolf Lord look one way and finally the actual Thunder Wolves look this one way.   I think it will help make the games easier to play for me and my opponent.
Some art maybes?

Luis
More Flesh tearers - looking at another 10 this week

Tim V
10 More Dark Angel guys hopefully

Greg
Start building some IG infantry squads

Caleb
Necrorks start back up again - looking for a unit by next post

Travis
Cyrx guys - hopefully get the rest of the undead horse people built - then painted.  Will see.

There are some other small things too - so will see if I feel like doing it.  I got to get some stuff for the babies room done.  I need to find a good local handy man to get stairs fixed (need to be resurfaced - I don't think I can do it).  I need to get my wife's car swapped out to a bigger one.  And shit - not go crazy at work right?  Work was busy today - just all day grind and getting pulled all over the place.

And wife broke her phone so meh - fixing screens sucks!  Meh... but it works better now soooo...  Blah!!!

Gonna try out another Wolf list hopefully this Thursday.  The plan is the same as what I posted - as I just love running around with Thunder Wolves.  They just fit my play style.  Hard, fast, and not giving no shits haha.

Ok - painted stuff...

This finishes off those Wyches or Witches or whatever. Some other DE stuff will come later on.


Herald of Khorne/Chaos Lord/Locus dude - conversions from all kind of bits.


A fun kit to put together actually - lots of weird Empire style - really.  Nothing to gaudy and the idea of a guy screaming at you while driving a tank - sounds awesome.


KABBOOOOMMMM!

Dat's a ton of horses.

Changing reds up to PP reds - I like them a lot.

Jump around, jump around, jump up jump up and get down!

Bullets are what's for dinner.
Some arts!

Goatboy's Monday Post



Woohoo! - was a busy weekend.  Looked at a new car - maybe in a few weeks.  We need something bigger for the bambino so thus - 4 doors at least.  Blah!!!  Beyond that I painted a lot too.  Hell I will be painting a ton more too.  Will start with the paint list real quick.

Me
Article for BOLS - maybe Wolves aka Space Goats
Nurgle Knight - need to get him built
Some art maybe too.

Caleb
NecroOrks - once this fantasy stuff gets knocked out first then I start no it again this weekend

Travis
More Cryx stuff - I got some metal horse guys that make me sad to build haha

Tim
More Marines - jump back guys

Luis
More marines - jump back guys again...

Greg S
Some AM guys too -

Lance
2 More Empire Cannons
1 Steamtank

Chris
I have 9 more Dark Elf Witches and some spaces and a display tray to paint - should be done by Wednesday at the latest - couldn't prime tonight cuz of some rain :(.

I am sure something else too.  Haha - it never ends right.  Crap you see that new plastic kit from Privateer?  It looks like it might be a good starting point to do some crazy Daemon Princes.  Heck it gives me ideas to do a crazy Master Blaster/Thunder Wolf army thing.  I always like the people that made werewolves for their Thunder Wolves.  It just sounds cool.


Speaking of other conversion ideas - I am thinking about that Necron Overlord on a barge/conversion with a Daemon Virus taking over.  Cables - push the Necron lord forward - remove the drivers - maybe add this crazy piece I have some Privateer press - this dude.


Use the center and cables etc.  Might work.  The Nurgle guy will have tubes out the top - probably some kind of blank face idea I have.  Will see if it fits.  I have the power fist/claw thing built.  I just have to fix up the arm a bit.  Woohoo - will take pics and tweet them as I build it.

Oh man - the Space Goats will come back.  I have Centurions already made for the goats so I could do the comb we see all the time.  Will see.  But meh - here is the initial idea - Knight, plus punch, plus some flyers equals kick ass.

HQ: Wolf Guard Battle Leader, Thunder Wolf, Powerfist, Storm Shield
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Troops: Blood Claws X 5, Storm Wolf, Skyhammer
Troops: Blood Claws X 5, Storm Wolf, Skyhammer
FA: Thunder Wolves X 3, Storm Shield X 3

Knight Character Dude 

1850

Seems pretty rough - I got enough attacks to hurt people and 2 flyers to get things.  Plus that super Knight is a pain in the ass too with the run, reroll, and etc.  I would just need to some of the flyers to get this type of army ready.  Seems mean as shit too haha.  I just love the idea of a big wolf punch mixed with some flyers.  Plus it might not be too bad to paint.  Need to find a better way to make Servo Arm guys.

I think the book is ok - just not as interesting as it once was.  I see the same thing happening to the Grey Knights next week.  Who would have thought - all these marines so quickly.  But I guess they want to get all the books out with real pics instead of art.  

Some painted models and a bit of art.

The tentacles are coming

Choking you!

Dancing machines!

Bamf!

Space Lasers!

Is this too much plasma?

Oh wait we have more.

Desert raider

This guy was a pain to put together haha.

Some cartoon art - lots of light!

Friday Post - Busy weekend with Life stuff!



First of all - sorry for the late post.  Life got busy - and I am sure it will get busier.  You will probably see less games and just painted models.  But hey - I love to paint right?

First things - lets give a shout out to someone running what sounds like will be a fun event.  I wish it was in Texas or near Texas as it just seems like a good time.  The Beef and Wing Brawl looks like what I feel events will become in the further.  Less measuring your junk and more trying to have a good time.  You get some food, you get some booze, and you get some games.   What more could you want?

So with that out of the way - lets see.  I ran the local tournament this past Sunday.  I tried a tweaked Maelstrom mission with the following set up.  6 Objectives number 1-6 and place by the players.

1. Control Objective #1 or Destroy Building/Vehicle/MC
2. Control Objective #2 or Destroy a unit via Shooting
3. Control Objective #3 or Destroy a Character
4. Control Objective #4 or issue a Challenge.
5. Control Objective #5 or have a unit in Enemies Deployment Zone
6. Control Objective #6 or Destroy a unit via Assault

Each player rolls a 2d6 and those are the two options they can score during their turn.  Max total points is 10 points.  I think some people thought tabling meant you got all of them but that was not the case.  It was a test and it worked ok.  I think some work needs to be done as sometimes things just got of hand if they were lucky on their 2d6.  Plus fast units were extremely strong.  But hey - its an idea right?

Oh Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome - saw it twice.

Man - I need to get my 3rd knight done (cuz someone is going to borrow them for Nova) so I can play something dumb like this.

Knight Formation
Errant X 2, Paladin

Space Marines
Librarian
Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-Melta, Meltagun, Combi-Melta
Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-Melta, Meltagun, Combi-Melta
Scouts X 5
Scouts X 5, Land Speed Storm
Wall of Martyrs

Seems stupid eh?

Goatboy's Monday er Sunday er yeah!



Man I wrote an article and then I deleted it because I am dumb.  Lordie lordie - but oh well - I got a crap ton of painting done this weekend.  One thing for me - tons of stuff for other people.  I got more to do this week too and hopefully I can knock out a ton of stuff.  Will see.

I got a game in Thursday.  We played modified Maelstrom missions.  I lost but I was more testing out the armies offensive capability versus playing the game.  It was a FMC list - Nurgle based.  I got great powers but man - I didn't cast a single power in the first turn.  Just nothing came out it was insane haha.

List

GUO, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2
DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Pink Horrors X 10
Pink Horrors X 10
Nurglings X 3
DP, MoN, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoN, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoN, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3

I was down some points - but most likely would have been characters in the Pink Horrors.  Still it worked well and played to my strengths.  Aggression haha.  GUO with Iron Arm is a bitch.  I didn't do any summoning because well - I didn't want too.  Normally you would put Summoning on the Pink Horrors and use left over dice to throw out things as needed.  Probably use the GUO at the end of rolling on Biomancy with either the Default power or getting lucky with one of the others.  Still it worked well and fit in a small box.

Let's write the paint list

Me
Art for people - need to see if I can find time - got the baby shower this weekend and a tournament to run on Sunday so I might be out of the pocket.  Will see
Article - need to right it before the end of the week as my weekend will be shot.
That is about it - won't have time to paint for myself.

Lance
18 More horse guys and then a movement tray - in boxes
2 Mortar teams - in a box
2 Characters - built - probably done tomorrow
1 Steam Tank - in a box

Travis
More and more Cryx and some mercaneries

Grew S
AM stuff - probably the scouts I see in a box - once the empire stuff is out will begin on this

Don
Last bit of the Old Skool flesh hounds - they are built just need to prime
Old Herald of Slaanesh on steed - built
Some Cygnar guys

Anthony
Jugger Lord - Primed and ready to paint - depending on how far I get into Empire tomorrow will see if I start the paint on it

Caleb
Necro Orks - probably won't be looked at till after this week

Chris
Dark Elves - need to knock out as many Empire this week - at least get the big horse squad done - then finish off this witch elves block.

Luis
Finish off the flesh tearers assault squad I have - need to swap some guns around

That is it for the list.  Man it looks daunting haha.  I can see what I knock out this week each night.  This is part of the reason why I quit the comic.  It just ate up a night when I really needed to have more time to painting things.  When I get caught up I will have time again to do more artwork.  It just gets hard as the art side of things takes more attention then painting if that makes sense.

Ok some models to look at and then I got to bed.

First new Ork - body is Black Reach - head is a Maxmini head.

AM guys eh?  

Tweaked and fixed up some painting on this one.


Will be doing a ton more of these guys.

I got 2 more buddies for him.

Tweaked the colors on this one.

We had two in this batch - one was not attached to a base - thus he got a taller ne.

Not sure what the green smoke is... but... 

More mind bullets!

Rando dudes.

Bring out your dead!

That one guy looks like he is holding in a fart.
