Work and life busy busy

But I still keep painting and doing art.  I guess people like it... It never seems to end muahahah.

Alright - this is a quick what I am working on post.  I have a ton of models to knock out and I am almost done with a few commissions.  The end is drawing near so yay!  Let's get the paint/work list I have to do then the models.

Paint List

Bols Article
Frontline Art for AOS stuff
Maybe this random converted Cabal Sorcerer With Jump Pack

Mike K
3 Pods - Need to build
1 Librarian - Need to build

Brandon V
6 Centurions - need to build/convert
Some Tau Stealth Suits

Greg S
Knight weapons that I already built and magnetized - simple paint - hot swap of Battle Cannon/Melta Cannon/Avenger Gatling Gun

Full Knight with magnets etc.

Iron Hand shield guys when I find them

Chaos Dwarf stuff - next 2 days should be build days so hopefully I can build one or two once I find the right bases in all my stuff.

James L
Chaos Space Marines that start up once I finish the 2 lingering Space Marine commissions - one should be done by the weekend

Bryce - Fellblade Build hoping for Saturday

This week has me doing a ton of job interviews for 2 different promotions I am going for.  So far I am still in the hunt with interviews planned as I move up the interview gauntlet.  I bought 2 suits to make myself look a bit better for interviews.  Bad on the wallet but I figured it is about time I got some in my long 38 years of being a nerd boy.  I feel confident so will see.

Beyond that - I got my list mostly locked for ATC.  I don't expect to change it and the last evil knight was done so it is fully finished right now.  It should be fun and I hope to get a game in this weekend against a buddy that has been wanting to throw down.

Its a basic Murder horde plus 2 very shooty knights to round it out.  I think Karnak will give me some play vs some stars as they try to cast spells as well as 48 bullets getting thrown out from the Knights - will see.

I can't help but wonder if there is a Space Wolf Dreadnought army out there with some shield guys, Iron priests to fix em up.  Its a thought haha.

Models and stuff.

Woot doggies!

So Frankie would always borrow Reece's mullet'd scout - and I thought heck Frankie needed one - so thus the Brock was born.

More Chaos Dwarves - up next are some cannons.

Finishing off this Space Shark commission

My Second Evil Knight - a Blue one so I could say it is MoT if I wanted too.

Monday, June 6, 2016

Quick model post update - got a ton of work to do too.  But that is my life haha.

Paint list

Chaos Knight #2 - probably go with a Blue with Orange cracks.  I have another set of resin pieces for a 3 - but really I just want 2 right now.  Maybe I will do my Ork Knights... hrm...
BOLS article - I am out this weekend so I need to write one up before hand.
Illustration for Store front - started working on it woot.

Nick R
Go back to some marines most likely to finish up this bit

Mike K
Tweak some completed marines and finish off the bulk - just vehicles left - pods/rhinos/etc.

Brandon V
Doing up some Fenris Wolves and an Iron Priest real quick - or so I hope

Chaos Dwarves son!

Greg S
Some basic Marine stuff - finished off the Knight bulk

James L
Chaos Space marines!  Woohoo!

Iron hands - trying to find some of these Shield guys to do - that is first on dock

Fellblade is soaking - going to pull all the water/soap stuff out and let dry for a build most likely after the weekend. Matching the Chaos Fire Raptor from last post.

Got a fun weekend with some of my buddies to test out lists.  Gonna bring 4 or so to at least try out.  The Draft FAQ has me thinking the Trip Lance super Power up team might be good.  The Ignore LOS/Cover power on a squad of Knights seems pretty spicy.  But here are the BS lists to look at.

ATC List #1 - Murder Horde plus Mo Dakka Knights
Daemonic Incursion
Murder Horde
Herald of Khorne, Jugger, Lesser Gift X 2, Crown of Khorne, Locus of Wrath - Warlord
Flesh Hounds X 7
Flesh Hounds X 5 - 7 units
Karanak for Aux

Renegade Knight, Gatling Cannons X 2
Renegade Knight, Gatling Cannons X 2

This the list I will most likely play for ATC.  It just does everything I need it to do - plus let me roll 24 shots when I shoot a knight. And you can see - I made at least one Knight for this already haha.

ATC List #2 - Tetrad and Friends
Daemonic Tetrad
DP, MoT, Wings, Impossible Robe, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift - Warlord
DP, MoN, Wings, Lvl 3, Exalted Gift, Greater Gift (Grim)
DP, MoS, Wings, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2, Armor
DP, MoK, Wings, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Armor of Scorn

Daemonic CAD
The Masque
Nurglings X 3 - 4 Units

This is the Tetrad with some fun to stop other Death Stars and things.  I don't know how good it is - but it feels great - especially since the masque can slow down Storm Surges too.  I think the Dual Knight list is just overall better for ATC stuff and ITC in general.  But hey - always good to have a Tetrad you can test with.

ATC list #3 - Star I posted on BOLS - the KDK thing - no need to repeat it.

ATC list #4 - Trip Lance and Friends
Imp Knight Formation - Triptate Lance
Warden, Iron Storm
Gallant, Storm Spear
Crusader, Battle Cannon, Iron Storm

Librarian Conclave
Tiggie Smalls
Librarian, Level 2, Force Axe
Librarian, Level 2, Force Axe

Inq Detachment
Xenos Inquistor, Lvl 1 Psyker, Servo Skulls X 3, Psychotroke Grenades
Henchmen - Mystic, Crusaders X 3
Henchmen - Mystic, Acolyte X 2
Henchmen - Mystic, Acolyte X 2

Thought is to roll for Invis and other power up spells.  From there get involved into things and shoot as much as you can.  The Ignore Cover power seems strong as does if you let it do both block LOS as well.  So many of the guns have long ranges so it might work.

Knight with magnetized shoulders - I didn't do the other weapons as I have them from other Knights that can somewhat match.  I wanted to do the guns as a thought from some Conversions I have seen.  Plus it just shoots a lot and has a nice heavy flamer set up.

Woot Fantasy!

Even more fantasy thingies!

mo Bikerz

Pew Pews

Small tweaks for color with adding some yellow but these guys were done.

Speed paint of some flyers.  Will end up adding more later to match the Deadpool army more.

Before the Alamo Post woot - Will see how I end up doing.

Woot it's that time of the year - another Alamo 40k GT.  Last year I did get 2nd even though I wasn't announced and hopefully this year I will do alright.  Bringing a basic list as it is an initial test for ATC.  Will see how it does.  Will post it after the paint list.

Paint List
BOLS Article - Started - another Psychic Spam list haha
Chaos Knight Build

Mike K
More Space Sharks

Brandon V
More LoTD stuff and some Tau thingies - almost done

Nick R
Vendetta and Valkyrie


Heresy Iron Hands

Greg S
Some extra marines

Got some  Fantasy/KoW stuff coming in as well as some other fun stuff.

Army list for Alamo

Daemonic Incursion
Daemon Lord: Fateweaver
Core: Murderhorde
Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Lesser Gift
Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 5 - 8 Units
Aux: Chaos Furies X 5, MoS

Foresworn Detachment
Renegade Knight, Gatling Cannon
Renegade Knight, Gatling Cannon

Buddy said I need the D CCW just in case and I figured he might be right.  I wonder if another list I played at War-games Con can be done with a Chaos Death Star build - Cabal/KDK/Knights - it might make me feel like a true evil player haha.   It is another thought.

But here is hoping I have a good time or two with the army and just drink a bit over the weekend.  Going with friends and staying in a hotel near the location.  Got a plastic drinking horn too - woohoo!

Will have a game write up next week after I get back.

Models to look at

Some D&D figures woot

Flyer - it came together a lot better then rumored on the kit - yay!

Ignore the base haha.

Old ass model :)

Another Magnetized Knight

Woohoo - another post

I got no game in this last weekend - so no testing.  Heard about a buddy that one with a CSM/KDK/Daemons list at the Broadside bash - seemed pretty spicy of a list.  Power up and abuse whatever kind of combo you can is the key for competitive 40k right now. And wow an FAQ too.  It kills some armies - one of them mine :( - the GK/BA/UM thing doesn't work as it used too.  Oh well - that is life right.  It just means I have to do something else with it - or use rhinos or some nonsense.  Who knows.

But anyway - onto paint list and minis - I did a lot these last 2 or so weeks

Paint List
BOLS article - most likely FAQ winners and losers
Frontline renegade article
Build my renegade knights maybe

Nick R
Some IG Flyers most likely

Greg S
Another Knight and some marine stuff

Brandon V
More LoTD guys and models

Mike K
More Space Sharks

Chaos Fire Rapter - it is built just will need to do the base and prime and paint.  Most likely starting this weekend

More Iron Hands

I might be missing something else so who knows.  I am always busy.  Work, painting, art, etc life is always a whirl.  Add in a baby and it is good times.

I should be off seeing Civil War this weekend.  Got my bro in law baby sitting so me and the Wife can check it out.  Woohoo!  Good times indeed.  Pulled a dang wisdom tooth out last week that effed up a lot of scheduling and kinda still hurts.  My teeth are all in cuz I gots a big mouth so it isn't too bad.  Still its just annoying to have the socket just hurting.

Army thoughts and ideas

Currently I am messing with Knights plus Daemons.  I will hopefully get a chance to play this list next - and the FAQ doesn't even eff with it!

Knight Renegades Foresworn
Knight Renegade, Avenger Gatling Cannon, Avenger Gatling Cannon
Knight Renegade, Rapid Fire Battle Cannon, Rapid Fire Battle Cannon

Daemonic Incursion
Core: Murder Horde
Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Crimson Crown, Lesser Gift X 2, Locus of Wrath
Flesh Hounds X 7
Flesh Hounds X 5 - 7 units
Aux: Hunter of Khorne - Karanak

I can shoot a lot, have stomps to neutralize stuff and enough bodies to run around and cause issues.  Plus the 7 man unit will hit like a ton of bricks.  I keep thinking using the Cabal might be good with some Knights as well - you can make the Invisible and just cause issues as they run around the table top.  If I drop the double guns on both knights it does free up some points so that might doable.  I am trying to think of a list for the Alamo right now so that is where this is coming from.

It does suck you can't stack Maledictions anymore as I was thinking of an enfeeble bomb to cause issues.  Still - overall the FAQ was good.

Blasts are going to be very strong cuz you can't hide from them under neath stuff.   Everyone gets hit - so buildings are going to be death factories.

Knight Renegades
Knight Renegade, Stormspear Rocket Pod
Knight Renegade, Stormspear Rocket Pod

Black Legion Cabal
Sorcerer, Bike, Meltabomb, Force Axe, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3, Veteran of the Long War
Sorcerer, Bike, Force Axe, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3, Veteran of the Long War

KDK Ally
Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Locus of Wrath
Blood Letters X 8
Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 10

You make a star of casting - throw the knights forward and hope for the best.  You can invisible one of them if you want or do other stuff.  It kinda depends on what you feel like.  It might work - it probably won't.  Still it is a way to get knights to run around.  If you drop it down to 3 casters you could do 3 knights without the missile pods.  That is another thought.

Love this Tetrad idea a buddy is throwing around.

Infernal Tetrad
DP of Khorne, Armor of Scorn, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Wings
DP of Slaanesh, Warpforged Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Wings, Lvl 2 Psyker
DP of Nurgle, Greater Gift X 2, Wings, Lvl 2 Psyker
DP of Tzeentch, Greater Gift X 2, Wings, Lvl 2 Psyker, The Robe of 3++

Knight Renegade
Knight Renegade

The thought is basically you have 3 DPs of Khorne with the Knights running around.  This seems like a fun list that while it won't win the big thing - it could do wonders in a local event.  It is very tempting to bring to Alamo as my Daemon Princes look good haha.  I just would want to get my Renegades made but don't know if I have time to build/paint them.  Of course I have time but you know how it goes haha.  I do wonder if taking off the armor on the Slaanesh DP and going with another casting level on the Tzeentch one might be worth it.  Just more thoughts haha.

The Culexius nerf was pretty rough and I expect a lot more deathstars to float around.  I think Chaos could get enough WC to stop at least 1 or 2 and maybe force the player to over use their WC dice.  It is a thought.  Meh still bummed my GK army is nerfed.

Ok onto some painting and art stuff - always working it haha.


Ignore the base - haven't built one yet as I thought one was in there - and hey its magnetized so yay!

Old School assassins.

Basic Murder Horde Plus Karnak is complete...

Woot more Pre Heresy Iron Hands

Space Sharks!

Real new assassin.
