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.

Sorry for the lack of post last week.



I didn't get in till Monday from ATC - then friends were in town so I didn't have time to get work done.  I feel bad if I don't post models soo... But I got a lot done on Sunday so I feel better about posting.

Right now I have too much commission stuff to get started on my Orks.  I might do a new Warboss for the Greentide later this week as a "yay you got stuff done" gift for me.  The list I posted on BOLS is what I plan on playing first.  I need to figure out how to get war buggies from those Killa Kans :).  I really like the idea of the grot tanks from FW so I might end up finding a way to get them.  I got issues haha.

Oh - I am not making Nova this year.  Wife isn't feeling the best and doesn't want me leaving as the baby time gets closer.  So I decided to keep her happy as she is pregnant.  Plus as Nova is on my anniversary it was a double anger time for me haha.  I will take my wife to the beach as it is fairly easy on her.  Man the baby is moving a ton too.  Woohoo!

Look for some art later on this week.  I got some things brewing that need to have time to settle on the page.  My normal work has been busy each day where I don't have a ton of time to doodle on paper.  Fun times for sure!  I got a Storm Claw/Reach/etc - I think I got a trade locally to get rid of the Space Wolf stuff for more Orks.  I need another set of Gretchin and more Nobz etc is never a bad thing for a hoarder like me.

Let's get a paint list

Me
Article - More Orks probably
A few art pieces for a buddy
Another logo thing for a blog site
I think that is it - maybe more art for the article next week
Who knows what else - might start on the new Ork Tide I want to do

Greg S
More AM stuff - got a few things done today - more to do

Caleb
Necro Orks - start on some vehicles

Lance K
Empire Knights to do - woohoo!

Chris C
Dark Elves - Witch Elves to be precise

Tim V
More marines - got a mixture of characters this batch around

Luis
Finish off the Assault Marines he has in a tray then more marines.

Anthony R
Finish off this Juggerlord - got the Maulerfiend done this morning.

Woohoo - lots to do.  Hope to knock out a few things tomorrow after work.  That is the plan anyway hah.

Saw this list at ATC from a buddy - it seems pretty interesting and I think it can do some bad things to people.

Blood Angels/GK

HQ: Mephiston
HQ: Tycho
HQ: Lord Draigo
Elites: Librarian Dreadnought
Troops: Death Company X 5, Drop Pod
Troops: Death Company Dreadnought, Drop Pod
Troops: Strike Squad X 5, Psycannon, Razorback, Psybolt, Assault Cannon
FA: GK Storm Raven, Hurricane Bolters, Psybolt
Heavy: BA Storm Raven, Multi-Melta, Hurricane Bolters, TWL Lascannon

So Meph + Tycho + Draigo makes a goofy death unit that could ride in a Raven or just walk around the table.  The Pods are Objective Secured for each of the Death Company things - plus you have anti air with the Storm Raven and Anti Psyker too.  Plus you have a ton of casting dice as needed.

Mephiston - 3 WC
Draigo - 2 WC
Librarian Dread - 2 WC
Strike Squad - 1 WC
Razorback - 1 WC
GK Storm Raven - 1 WC

Total = 10 WC

The super unit is Toughness 6 or 9 depending on if you roll Iron Arm on Mephiston.  The nutty thing is you do get screwed by Terminator armor as all the swords are AP 3.  Woohoo fun times.  Still it just looks goofy as all heck plus it is small and can be made to look so awesome with the small amount of models.  Too bad we will see a new BA book that might dump on this :(.  But still - it is an idea.

Alright - some models and I call it a night.

Mr. Bad Touch - his tongue was cut off - so I had to make teeth.

Necro Orks are coming back!


Finished some AM guys woohoo!



More Dark Angel like things.  Woohoo.

Goatboy's Monday - Sorry for the Late post



I wanted to get some minis done and thought - heck I should get them done before I post.  I will be off to the ATC this weekend so if you are there - give me a shout and tell me how glad you are that Plastic Dudesmen is gone hah.

So the new character cards are coming for Daemons - I have the shell made just need to make Heralds etc and will do that before long.  I have to make mine for the weekend heh.  Will see if casting works.  The Nurgle Herald is the daemon summoner as he has enough wounds to eat a few perils if needed.

I just packed my army - and dammit I have to bring so many extra daemons just in case.  Meh!

Ok - some Ork stuff - most likely I will be messing with the Greentide to see if it works.  The shell I posted on BOLS is interesting - but I don't think I need as many PKs in the green tide.

HQ: Warboss, PK, Eavy Armor, Big Bosspole - 109
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit, Nob, PK - 100
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit, Nob, PK - 100
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit, Nob, PK - 100
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit, Nob, PK - 100
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit, Nob, PK - 100
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit - 65
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit - 65
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit - 65
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit - 65
Troops: Slugga Boyz, Rokkit - 65

Total: 934pts

CAD - Ork Codex
HQ: Warboss, PK, Lucky Stix, Eavy Armor - 114pts
HQ: Painboy - 50pts
HQ: Mekboy - 15pts
HQ: Mekboy - 15pts
Troops: Boyz X 10 - 60pts
Troops: Boyz X 10 - 60pts
Troops: Boyz X 10 - 60pts
FA: Warbuggies X 5, Rokkits - 125pts
Heavy: Lootas X 9, Meks X 3 - 126pts
Heavy: Mek Guns X 5 - 90pts
Total: 685pts

Fortification: Firestorm Redoubt - 200pts

1849 - has a nice amount of bodies - and the Tide is coming - plus a lot of the guys are inside the Bastion to make sure the Wyverns don't kill the important bits haha.  Might work - might not.  Still interesting.

Paint list

Me
Article - need to get one written before I go
Um - start the Ork horde as I want a new one haha.  Many rokkits!
I got some art to work on this weekend too.

Tim
More Terminators

Greg
Start the AM stuff more!

Luis
More Assault Marines - 12 so far

Jens
A bunch of bases

Plus there are some Empire things and more Cryx stuff.  Plus some Chaos bits too - small commissions I can knock out.  Woohoo!  More will get added next week when I get back.

Models and will call this a day - tired too haha.

Woohoo - Monday!



I painted a ton of models this weekend at Wargames/Texas/Bols/Etc con.  Look for some new models going into the for sale section later on this week.  I will do a post about it.  Look for some CSM stuff - Cypher, and some other single model stuff if you are interested.  Fun times indeed.

The new Ork book came out - have to think what kind of Warbuggie I can convert.  It is a pain in the butt as I think I need 10 :(.  Might get some grot tanks and convert up.  Trust me they will be good, out flanking and causing issues.  Man it is an odd book but I think the formations will kick it up a notch when they come out.  For sure.  Heck super Horde is going to be annoying as shit.  200 Orks hitting you turn 2 should do some damage.  Heck the Stompa army is good too.  Crazy stuff.

Look for some lists coming next week.  I have to paint up my Daemon army for ATC.  I got 10 more Furies to do and then figure out if I want more FA options.  Man - Daemon rush is good too.  It can summon a few times and still be good.  That is where the strength is - summoning some Plague Drones and other nonsense.  But it won't finish games so... But oh well.

Current ATC list

Chaos Daemons
Warlord HQ: Herald of Nurgle, Palanquin, Lvl 2, Exalted Reward
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Steed of Slaanesh, Locus of Beguilement, Lvl 2
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Lvl 2
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Lvl 2
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Lvl 2
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
FA: Furies of Slaanesh X 20
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

1850

It seems fun - should work out and I got enough casting to be annoying.  I push forward - get involved and push some poo in.  Fun times indeed.

Goatboy - Didn't Die



Family has been down so time has been rough.  I started ramping up a bit paint wise so hopefully this next week kicks a ton of ass and I can knock out big portions of people's armies.  I still have a ton left to paint all over - so this will be a rough couple of weeks as I strive to get my ATC army done.  I just need to get a set of Nurglings, Herald of Palanquin, and 20 Furies.  I just hate my life at times haha.

If you read my stuff on BOLS you know I stopped doing Plastic Dudesmen.  I just got tired of investing so much time and really the comments should have just been turned off.  But meh - 170 is more then the jerks that commented could do - so there is that haha.  You can read some of the other ones and chuckle for me.  And to those keeping on doing game related comics like that - have fun!  I think I will invest more of my time doing art I want to do.  So will see.  Paint list and stuff.

Me
Bols Article - Just written on Orks - it is kind of meandering as I won't have a solid feel till I get the book in.
20 Furies of Slaanesh - Need to find 10 more Daemonettes.  I think I have them so will see.  Cool conversion I blame Kenny on.
3 Nurglings - got the box these guys are fun
1 Herald of Nurgle on Palaquin.  I have done one in the past - so will just redo that one.
Ork review stuff for Kromlech.

Luis
Rhino - primed and ready to go
Jump Pack guys - need to pull and prime to finish this box of stuff.

Don
Old Skool Khorne Dogs - got 9 ready to base and prime - might do it tonight
More dogs too - and some other random stuff.

Tim
More Marines - got 7 Terminators done - need to get more guys done too

Chris
Dark Elves - got some spear like guys - got another batch primed

Greg
AM stuff to do - will start with some character stuff as it is more fun for me.

Some random D&D figures too that just came in to work on.  3 Guys should be fun - will try to knock them out later on this week.

I hope to get at least most of the week on model painting.  That is my desire.  Will see.  Beyond that I need to get ATC army ready to go.  I am playing some kind of rush thing I have mostly painted up.  It should be fun attacker list as I prey on some of the other armies.  Will see if it works out haha.  Will post the list when I get closer and actually get all the pieces done.

I need to get more Nurglings for other lists and with the baby coming - most likely my spending is shot a bit.  I got the Crib yesterday woohoo.  It should come in a few weeks.  Then I get to build that instead of a model for the weekend.  We painted the Kitchen yesterday.  Next up is some stairs and other things.  Woohoo!

Old Skool!

2 More Rhinos to go

I missed mine - got another converted one that looks goofy hah.

Marines?

Mo Marines?


A fun one - was originally Plastic Dudesmen #171 but decided to just stop for now.

Unfair poker game eh?

Mad Koala.
