Wut - Another Thursday Post - oh my goodness



Woohoo - this weekend was a crazy amount of work.  I had to knock out that Sisters order - so that was building 2 Exorcists, painting them, and then building a Vendetta and painting it Tuesday night.  Woohoo.  Got it all done and it is shipped - hopefully it gets there.

The exorcists are the newest model on my shit list of models I hate to build.  Warmachine covers most of it with some small things like old metal ass models I get from time to time and bad FW stuff. Man that model sucks - don't really like the FW version either so it is just a mess.  Still it is done.  Let's see my paint list.

Me
Article for Bols - Who knows
Art for a Team - got the idea - have to draw it
Art for Frontline - got 3 things done for Dropzone commander - just have to draw the next 2 and color - maybe at some point on Sunday
Art for FMC cards for LVO
Maybe Art for a dumb shirt for LVO for myself...
Still want to work on a comic idea for myself... blah
Maybe make a test Goat Scout squad - got an idea

Eric
Might see if I can build some ripper swarms from my stuff - guy is busy and needs to get me some more models

Brandon
2 Sicarians I need to build and magnetize parts
Something else I can't remember haha

James
Tau that came in last week to start on

Luis
More Flesh Tearers stuff - gonna start building them soon as sisters got knocked out - hooray for no metal nonsense for the most part

My plan tonight is to get a game after work. I missed games this weekend due to forgetting the baby formula.  I don't think he would have let me play though - he was demanding my attention even as I just sat there.  What kind of jerk right... dang cute baby hahaha.  Trying to figure out if I want to have one big GD in there or 2 in my hey I thought this was a 6th edition tournament list.

Here is the list for maybe tonight - all painted even

HQ: Keeper, Lvl 3, Greater X 2
HQ: DP, MoT, Lvl 3, Greater, Exalted, Wings, Armor, Flyer Ace
Troops: Nurglings
Troops: Nurglings
Troops: Nurglings
Troops: Nurglings
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Lesser Gift, Greater Gift X 2
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Lesser Gift, Greater Gift X 2
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Lesser Gift, Greater Gift X 2

Basic - simple, and fairly small to transport.  Will end up Deep Striking a lot of the DP's in most games I bet.  Will see.  I thought about adding a Void shield and going with a LoC - but I don't want to make one that at least looks right.  But that is probably the right idea if you wanted to go in that direction.  Blah!

Some models to look at.

This finishes off that small Cryx order - this model sucked to build.  Whoever cuts these models needs to rethink how they cut stuff.

Woot - this is the color scheme I would do my own Nids in - simple and easy.


And we have all the troops done for my LVO army.



One of the 3 went together ok - the other two sucked...

Pew pew pew!!!  Yay battle damage.

Late ass post



Ok - so Thursday post.  Yeah it is late - been crazy busy.  Life is rough for the family Goatboy haha.  Boy is doing great - hopefully I can get some games in this weekend.  At least one to test my LVO list.  You saw it last week - that is the plan to play.  Woohoo

Paint list
Me
2 Sets of 3 Nurglings to do - need to build and then paint - easy stuff
Article for BOLS
Frontline Dropzone Commander art
Art for Caleb and army design stuff
Maybe more art?

Mike K
3 Exorcists - these models suck butt to build
1 Valk to build and paint

Don S
1 Cryx metal model thing

Luis
Drop pods to do
Storm Raven
and more regular guys - need to build all of this... woohoo

Eric
Nids to do - the one you see below

Some other stuff coming in too.  Woohoo!

Will try to do a basic batrep on the test game I plan on throwing out this weekend.  The Massed DP army.

Keeper, Greater X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoT, Wings, Armor, Exalted, Greater, Lvl 3, Flying Ace
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3,Greater X 2, Lesser
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3,Greater X 2, Lesser
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3,Greater X 2, Lesser

Almost tempted to run a CSM DP as an Ally - might be better as a Malefic caster with Spell Fam and the chance to get nutty stuff or make Eternal Warrior if I have the points.  But his flying ass is kind of bunk so will see.  Thoughts thoughts and more thoughts.

Lets look at models yay!


It is done!

You got metal crabs?

This is gonna ruin your picnic


Sisters!


Quick Orks cuz I love to paint em.

Woot - Monday post yay!

Tiger Side Goat Smash!


Woohoo - I maka da post.  I got a game in with Rob Baer from Spikey Bits etc.  He was playing a modified super friends list and I played the 3 Slaanesh DP's with 4 Grinders and Nurglings.  The game went about right where I thought it should - first blood meant I had to play for the draw.  Which is what happened.

The grinders all ate it due to crazy assaults and I never got much work out of them.  They killed some scouts and helped with things.  I got more out of the DP's as they flew around and caused issues.  In fact it just made me think FMC is still worth it.  You can ignore the Maelstrom if you plan things right so it might be worth it to just do the FMC thing - and drop down at the end to grab objectives as needed.  Kill the MSU troops and just go from there.  The whips help with that as does Psychic Shriek.

Wrote up this list - seems dumb too but hey.

Daemons plus Ally Daemons

HQ: Keeper, Gifts X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2
Heavy: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2

HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2
Troops: Nurglings X 3

You get 4 Flying bits of nonsense and a Keeper who will summon from the backfield.  You can null deploy with just Nurglings everywhere too.  Plus it has 4 flying dildo princes as I call them hehe.  It seems right up my alleyway too.  If not that I can drop one Nurgling base to get a MoT DP and get the Grim if I want too.  I know I love the MoS guys as fleet helps as does randomly Rending if you need to get into a tank etc with not having to go down to 1 attack for the smash.

Maybe will test this with Nick later on this week.

The 4 Grinders - while amusing - just didn't do enough to warrant their cost.  I am not sure what I would do to change them - I think a better designed list for them works.  The Drone Star is really annoying and they do wonders in that list as you have a central pain in the butt unit - which leaves the grinders more room to get their job done.   I don't want to buy more flies as they break a lot - so thus it leaves me looking at other directions.  Maybe a grinder list with Dogs might do better.  Full on charge rush list might do well.

Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Greater Gift, Lesser Gift, Locus of Wrath
Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Greater Gift, Lesser Gift, Locus of Wrath
Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Greater Gift, Lesser Gift, Locus of Wrath
Nurglings X 3
Nurglings X 3
Nurglings X 3
Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 15
Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 15
Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 15
Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

This sounds fun - goes full tilt and says - screw you I cover the field in jerks.  Meh more random thoughts as usual.

Alright paint list/art list/etc

Me
MoS DP? - gun DP - love to make these guys
Nurgling buy and paint?
6 Pieces of art for Frontline and Dropzone commander - like the designs will have more fun with these - Warmachine was hard as I am not a fan of the designs for some of the models
Um - that is about it for now for me.

Mike
2 Immolaters
3 Exorcists
1 Vendetta
Then the sisters are done!

Eric
Hive Crone

Caleb
NecroOrk stompa - have to fix and tweak then head and then I can paint it

Don S
3 Cryx Warjacks - two plastic - yay! one metal... boo!!!

Luis
Flesh out the troop flesh tearers then a Storm Raven and some pods

And then other stuff as people email with what they need for Adepticon etc.  Woot!

Models to check out.

I got some more to do - woot - 3 more yay!

I need to buy more... 

Gunslingers for the win!

You like templates?

Or how about these templates?

I always hated the lasgun things on the back - I saw a guy flip em and now I do it for all of mine.  Makes it look more scifi too.

Pink is the new red?

Post Xmas Post thing yay!



Woot - doing this early - started writing on Xmas day - will hopefully finish on the 26th if it isn't too busy at work.  Woohoo!

I actually got some painting done these last few days.  Enough to make me feel good about myself.  I have a few more to do in a small commission and then a bunch for larger work.  Lots of things all over the place I need to finish.  It just never ends for me.  Plus art stuff too haha.  It never ends for the Goatboy.

Let's do a paint list real quick - just to write it all out.

Me
Frontline Art - 3 more Hordes Pics to do then some Dropzone commander - 2 Done - need to draw the 3rd - have the idea.
BOLS article - last of the year woohoo! - Done!
I need to buy some Nurglings to finish up... bah! - Built! I think I have another box somewhere too - need to see if I can find it.
Fix up screamers that fell off bases
Do a Test Nid for a future commission - Done!

Don S
Crys stuff - things to finish up - some Warjacks and some solos

Michael K
Lots of Sister and IG vehicles - Built 2 today - Wyvern and Manticore...
The Saint - Done - need to seal her.

Luis P
Flesh Tearers stuff - some models and small things to finish out an army - Some done today!

Caleb
NecroOrk Stompa - want to get this done dammit - Will hopefully get time when I get back into town over the weekend.  It is a half day sort of jobbie job.

I am sure other stuff as people get back with me after Xmas.  Woohoo it is how I do it!

Boy is getting better - he smiles a lot more now and sleeps ok.  He is just getting bigger too.  Hopefully I can get a lot of good time working on stuff next year.  And I need to study for certifications for work too.  Man it never ends for the Goat.  I will slow down eventually.

I am going to test the 4 Grinder list this next week - and then another version that drops one set of Nurglings and Grinder to get 8 screamers.  It might work better - but 4 Grinders sound awesome.  I still really like the 3 Chapter Master idea I posted on BOLS the other day.  Here is a smaller version that might be fun.

Imperial Fists Main + Clan Raakan Ally

HQ: Lysander
HQ: Chapter Master, Terminator Armor, The Shield Eternal, Chainfist
Elites: Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-melta, Meltagun, Combi-Grav
Elites: Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-melta, Meltagun, Combi-Grav
Elites: Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-melta, Meltagun, Combi-Grav
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb
Heavy: Relic Sicarian Battle Tank, Hvy Bolters Sponsons

HQ: Chapter Master, Gorgon's Chain, Chainfist, Thunder Hammer, Terminator Armor
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb

It seems like it could win games on just being annoying alone.  Plus the 3 man super dudes would be cool as they hit the ground, drop lasers from the sky, and then get involved in dumb situations.  It is like a stupid odd ball comedy.  Woohoo!

First LVO army testing will be the following

DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Nurglings X 4
Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent X 4

Super basic - just to see if things work out.  From there I move stuff around woohoo!  Will hopefully do a quick right up on how it actually worked.  4 Grinders just sound fun.

I can drop a grinder and one Nurgling squad for 8 screamers.  Might be worth it.

Models to check out.


More Cryx!  I do like painting them for Warmachine.

This might be my new favorite Daemon prince.



That Helbrute kit has lots of cool stuff in it.  

Nid Test for a client - likes it so most likely an army of this in a few months.


Got one more to do - plus a Manticore - damaged for the win!


This finishes off all the regular sisters - now it is just vehicles.
The Saint herself.
Woot some DC - Storm Raven for them is coming soonish.
Finally some Art too - got one more Hordes to do for Frontline.

Goatboy's Sunday Thoughts



Man babies suck up your time.  As does the fiscal end of month.  Woohoo.  But I am surviving and striving and driving and... painting still?  Woohoo!

I think I have to veto doing an Ork army for LVO.  I just don't have the time to get a new one ready to go.  This means I have to go Chaos of some sort.  Lists coming in a bit after I write up some paint list/thought stuff etc.  But it makes me sad about the Orks.  I still have ideas on how to get it to work - just not finding the time to get it done and practiced with.  Poops!

I did get a game in with Nick - played a meh Chaos Space Marine list as I still had all the pieces pulled out.  It was

Sorcer X 2 on Bikes
Chaos Lord on Juggernaut with stuff
30 Cultists
1 Sicarian
2 Helblades
2 Set of Chaos Spawn
3 Maulerfiends

He kicked my butt as I didn't roll well for penetration and other hits and just got left hanging in the wind.  It was alright as I tricked him last time and he didn't fall for it and went after the right squad.  I really hate the damn Saint from the sisters.   That lady rocks so many units with her super sword and pain in the ass deep strikes haha.  Too many heavy flamers dammit.  Still it was fun to get a game in even though it was a butt whooping.

Ok paint list

Me
3 Units of Nurglings I need to buy and build
3 More Horde arts for Frontline gaming
Some arts for Frontline based on drop zone commander
Art for design idea etc
Maybe work on Comic idea to doodle - will see if the week is slow enough

Mike K
11 more sisters of battle - primed
Lots of vehicles

Don S
Some Cryx stuff - some are built already - priming them now

Caleb
NecroOrk Stompa - this is where my Ork time is going to go

Luis
Flesh Tearers stuff

Woot - nothing too nutty - but yeah.  I am sure some other stuff will come in too that I will need to get done.  Waiting on this Knight stuff to get in to work on.  Woohoo!

Let's get on with LVO lists.

LVO List one - Basic and totally Copy and Paste nonsense

CSM Daemons + CSM Daemons Ally

HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

Ally
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

1850 pts of pure nonsense.  I have 4 Obj Secured troops which isn't bad.  I have armor 13 vehicles that are a pain and fast plus 3 Flying Dildo princes.  It looks like it could work - and I just need to paint up 3 sets of Nurglings and maybe another Grinder.  I will probably do another Gun prince as they will match the other ones.  So simple - basic and I think actually fun to play.  I go big and get involved haha.

The other one has more tricks involved.  In the form of dropping the ally and getting in a CSM - summoning function.

CSM Daemons + Black Leegion

HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

Ally - Black Legion
HQ: DP, MoN, Wings, Armor, Eternal Warrior Skull, Gift of Mutation, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer

This one just needs to get one box of Nurglings and I have everything else done already.  It has the summoning suite needed on the MoN price plus he won't die to some random Strength 10 shot if he gets it in the end.  The Dragon is still good and I feel having 3 could still be pretty scary for a lot of armies to face.  Look at something like this and get sad at the FW cost.

Crimson Slaughter

HQ: Bel'Akor
HQ: CSM Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar, Prophet of Voices, Melta bombs, Gift of Mutation
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Possessed X 5, MoT, Chaos Rhino, Combi-Melta
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition

I mean - this looks dumb as heck but it shoots a lot.  Plus those dragons are going to suck for anyone. I went with Be'lakor because it gives you shrouding automatically.  This is a help versus a lot of armies and keeps your Sicarians tough to remove.  If not Bel - I guess you could go into just Sorcerers but I think the Possessed one is just going to be summoning stuff.  It probably won't work but man - bullets will be coming at you from all over the place.  The CSM sorcerer is built this way so I could get 3 Sicarians.

Stupid - if I could do more then 2 sources Orks.

Ork Horde Detachment + Great Waagh Detachment + Greentide

Greentide
5 Units of 9 Slugga Boyz + Nob w/PK
5 Units of 10 Slugga Boyz
Warboss, PK

Ork Horde
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK, Finkin Cap - Warlord
HQ: Mad Doc
HQ: Painboy, Warbike
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
FA: Deff Koptas X 5, TWL Rokkits X 5

Great Waagh
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK, Da Big Bosspole
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK
Elites: Tank Bustas X 5, Bomb Squigg
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10

You have the big ole tide sitting in front then you have the Deff Squad running around causing issues.  You want to roll strategic and if you get lucky you can put all kinds of in the middle of the board and just be a huge threat.  Plus that bike squad is pretty dang scary to look at.  But again - 3 sources so sad panda pants.  Plus that is a lot of gretchin haha.

Bah!!! So lets get onto something I don did. 

First some Frontline Gaming art for battle reports.


Now some other arts.
And finally some arts for a team thing.  I like how the Daemon came out.
Some models to look at too.
