Woot - only a Day late



Babies take up some time haha.  Crazy enough - the painting ability isn't to hampered - but the drawing time is hurt.  It takes more mental power for me to draw then it is for me to paint, even though getting a finished drawing takes less time.  Ugh - got things to do haha.

Let's go with the paint list - I got a bunch of stuff done this week and hope to knock out some painting commissions by the weekend so I can become a super hero of paint.  Or something like that.

Me
Maybe work on some Orks?
Article - who knows what I will talk about - brain is kind of scatter/sleep deprived so yeah - if I lose my train of thought as I write it Larry fixes it haha.
Art - Mechanical man thingie
Art - Space Marine Banner thingie
Art - Frontline Batrep Warmachine - got Retribution, Mercs, and Convergence to do
Art - Frontline Batrep Hordes - Got a few of those to do
Art - Frontline Batrep Dropzone commander - haven't even started
Maybe I will paint something for me hah.

Brandon
LoTD Bikers - got a quick turn around one to do before Da Boyz GT - bikers, foot people, etc

Caleb
Box 2 of NecroOrks is almost done - I have a base and 3 portal thingies to finish - then we got a Stompa after that.

Travis
1 Box of 10 Metal Merc Troops and 1 Warcaster

Tim V
Land Raider
Drop Pod
1 Biker plus 1 Biker Character
3 Knights

Greg S
Start building some IG.

From there - I got some other stuff I need to paint up too in the coming months.  A Nid commission plus Warmachine Cygnar small batch to do.  I am glad I don't have any events until next year to even think about.  LVO is a lock as is ATC - from there who knows.  Woohoo...

It looks like I might get a game in tonight.  I was going to pull out an Ork Greentide list to just see how the tide handles.  Basic build - major proxies as I don't have a 100 Slugga/Choppa boyz.  I do have a 120 Shoota boyz though :(.

Greentide plus Ork CAD

Greentide
Warboss, Eavy Armor, PK, Supa Cybork,
Ard Slugga Boyz X 9, Nob, PK
Ard Slugga Boyz X 9, Nob, PK
Ard Slugga Boyz X 9, Nob, PK
Ard Slugga Boyz X 9, Nob, PK
Slugga Boyz X 9, Nob, Big Choppa
Slugga Boyz X 9, Nob, Big Choppa
Slugga Boyz X 10
Slugga Boyz X 10
Slugga Boyz X 10
Slugga Boyz X 10

Ork CAD
Warboss, Eavy Armor, Lucky Stix, Power Klaw, Bosspole
Mad Doc
Gretchin X 10
Gretchin X 10
Warbuggies X 5, TWL Rokkits
Mek Guns X 5
Lootas X 10
Aegis Line, Ammo Dump

Will see if it works alright.  It should give me some ideas on what is needed as I play and what I need to paint for next year.  Depending on what comes out too.  Woohoo!

Man - I hope the evil knights from FW are good - I got some ideas they could use - but then I would just look like I am wish listing. Let's see from the top.

No more shields - they all become demonic thus get 5+ Inv saves.
Slaanesh would have fleet - plus its guns would be short ranged and a large amount of shooting.
Khorne would have Melta guns, have extra attacks, and rampage
Tzeentch would be shoot the most and probably have a ML for casting
Nurgle would have Shroud and some kind of bile cannon thing.

Or so I would hope - will see.  Alright - some models to show then I am off working on some artwork I hope.

Zoom zoom - more necrons!

Another fancy ride for the Necro Orks

Not sure what this guy is.

I wanted to paint this guy since seeing him - decided to make him a Chaos Space Marine Bike Chaos Lord.




More bikerz!!!

Where did we park our car?

Grrr... give me some kibble!

Some arts.

Goatboy's Tuesday - I am surviving!



When I don't get much sleep - I end up doing some kind of "mindless" work.  Painting falls into that while art doesn't really fall into that.  It is life - but I have gotten painting stuff done so that is good.  In fact I bet I finish off a commission by this weekend, get another one partway done and probably end up starting on another rush order too.  I just can't stop being busy.

Oh yeah - wife had the baby last week too on Tuesday.  In fact he will be a full week today at 6:09pm central.  Woohoo - he is doing well, gaining weight and giving me lots of pops in return for the sleepless nights.  Fair trade right?  I hope to get a game in next week when I have a buddy come over.  Maybe will try to bat rep it so I can show how bad I play.  Maybe.

Let's get my work list for the week.

Me
Maybe build the 2 mauler fiends I want to play with.  Maybe
Bought the Blight King Character and plan on putting him on an Attack Bike to create the new Nurgle Chaos Lord idea I have.
Write Article for Monday
Plus hopefully get some Art done for Frontline gaming - knock out the Warmachine/Hordes bat rep art to get them done and hopefully get me some end times stuff.
Maybe other art too? I know I got some.

Greg S
Start working on some AM stuff hopefully

Travis
Finish off the Cryx - got a box of troop like guys, a character, and this other horse guy

Tim
I have 3 knights and a bunch of bikers to do.  Thankfully they are mostly built so I don't have to cry over 3 knights.

Caleb
NecroOrks - got another flyer, some ghost arc stuff and some other things.  Woohoo it never ends for this art piece/army.

I have other stuff I have to look at and maybe another commission.  Waiting on the model count plus time to figure out if I can get it done in time.  Woohoo.

Man I can't wait to throwing down with the Siccariun I plan on getting soon.  Woohoo.

Want to do a complete assault list CSM.  Just cause I plan on losing a lot.  Heck I can have two Siccariuns in there too because I plan on taking a Sorcerer.  Hrm... interesting thoughts.

Crimson Slaughter/Daemons

HQ: Chaos Lord, Bike, Sigil, PF, Lit Claw, MoN
HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Spell Fam
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN

Maybe it will work?  It will look wonky as all hell haha.

Painted stuff!



LOTD test for what could be a new commission - did not do the conversions.


More NecroOrks!

Rogue Psyker?

There is gonna be more of these guys.

Creeper!  Cryx!

Yeah for plastic models.

Goatboy's Very Late post



Sorry for the lack of an update.  No baby yet - but lots of baby stuff and life stuff.  Plus frustrating trying to pay new car payment dammit.  But blah blah blah - more game stuff!

Paint list - will see how much I get done while baby is coming.  When I am running on very little sleep doing somewhat mindless things keeps me going.  Painting falls in that category while drawing doesn't so much.  Will see what I end up doing.

Me.
Nothing really - got charity model done so really I would like to get 2 more mauler fiends fiends but will see.
Some art - got some stuff to get done for Frontline and others.

Travis
More Cryx - gonna try to get that done in the 3 weeks I have off for the baby.

Caleb
NecroOrks - gonna get more knocked out.

Brandon
Test Bikers for Legion of the damned - got my initial one done - will get the 5 done in a few days.

Tim
Start to pull out the biker guys.

Will
10 Flesh Hounds of Khorne

Greg
More IG/Inq things.

These are all things I want to hit in the next 3 weeks.  Plus I have Don's Cygnar stuff and other fun things.  And my stuff - I still want to do the Greentide for myself.

Feast is going on while I write this.  I am sure I would have played in the invitational.  Since I wouldn't have had time to get a Greentide list working I would have played some kind of CSM/Daemon built.  Summoning plus a fast rush as I feel that would working a 1500 pt environment.

HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Lightning Claw, Sigil of Corrpution, Gift of Mutation
HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5
Heavy: Maulerfiend
Heavy: Maulerfiend
Heavy: Maulerfiend

HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Lvl 3
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Lvl 3
Troops: Pink Horrors X 16

1500 pts - I can make more guys to cover the score - start at 12 WC dice so I should be able to cast spells.  I could go with a non Bel'Akor option too - but man this looks good.  Kind of wonder if I should get Lasher Tendrils on the Maulerfiends but again this is an idea list that I might have taken.

I like the Greentide too - here is the initial design build I think might work out.

Greentide plus Ork Horde Detachment

Greentide
HQ: Warboss, Power Klaw, Supa Cybork Body
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Eavy Armor, Nob, PK
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Eavy Armor, Nob, PK
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Eavy Armor, Nob, PK
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Nob, PK
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Nob, PK
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Nob, PK
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Nob, Big Choppa
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10, Nob, Big Choppa
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10
Troops: Slugga Boyz X 10

Ork Horde:
HQ: Mad Doc
HQ: Warboss, Power Klaw, Lucky Stix
HQ: Weird Boy, Lvl 2
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Heavy: Mek Guns X 3, Traktor Cannon X 3
Heavy: Mek Guns X 5, Smasha Guns X 5
Fortification: Aegis Line, Ammunition Dump

1850 on the nose.  Lots of bodies - ways to make more with the Caster or go Santic if I want.  It might work.  It looks interesting for sure.  Too bad the Mek guns are expensive.

Oh some art and minis - I did finish some work.

NecroOrk Trukk - Ghost Ark... etc

FoB Army - Troop Choice # 1

FoB Army - Troop Choice # 2

Charity Model


Inquisitor Land Raider Crusader


I do hates me some metal models haha.

Some art for Steve Turner.

More Frontline arts.
Could be a poster design - at least what I colored today.

Sunday Posts - hopefully a continuation



That is the plan anyway - got a good amount of work done this week - plus baby stuff.  Yay!!! It is looking like my next event is going to be LVO.  1850 - most likely 2 sources so that means probably something evil - unless I can get my Orks working right.  The current thought list is trying to use Maulerfiends plus other things in order to help me deal with Knights and what not.

Basic CSM shell - works in any CSM choice.

Cultists X 10
Cultists X 10
Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils

Comes out to 505 points.  From there I am thinking the following would work from the Ally side.

Bel'Akor
Pink Horrors x 16
Nurglings X 3

That comes out to 638 points and gives me 6 WC right there.  I might try to add in more Pink Horrors or just need one set depending on what HQ's I run over on the CSM side.

From there I thought maybe a Void Shield Generator with 2 more shields to help keep me safe from alpha strikes.  I think it stuffs Grav weapons as it only goes away for a penetrating hit - but those weapons never roll to penetrate so maybe it means the shield keeps the brown noise away.

Void Shield Generator - 100pts

From there - I don't know what else to do.  I can go the Straight FMC route if I wanted too.

Crimson Slaugher
DP, MoN, Armor, Wings, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar, Gift of Mutation
DP, MoN, Armor, Wings, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar, Gift of Mutation

This means I add in another 10 cultists to round it out - but do they really do any good?  Still I sit at 12 WC - I have some reroll abilities on the DP's so my numbers get smaller for throwing smaller spells and I might be able to make the min 500 pts to make a decent summoning list.  The DP's can hit flyers - not very well but still they can so it might not be a terrible idea.  The other thought was Sorc on Bikes with Chaos Spawn.

CSM Sorcerer, Bike, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
CSM Sorcerer, Bike, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN

I have to get rid of the 3rd Cultists squad and now I can add more random things to the Sorcerers.  I generate a lot of warp charge dice and if I get rid of the Void Shield generator I might go to two squads of pink horrors to create a true factor of daemon summoning.  Just more ideas that I like to think over - I think it has to do with painting Maulerfiends for a client.  Heck I could look at adding a Soul Grinder to make it a complete evil daemon robot army.

Heck I also like the idea of running 2 Khorne Lords on Juggers with Chaos Spawn - they are a hell of a lot of fun to go punch things with heh.  Plus I love painting up a new one :).

Ok that is where my brain is list wise - let's talk the painting list.

Me
Bols Article - Written yesterday
Frontline Art - many things I have to do
Finish 10 Pink Horrors for Feast of Blades
Finish 10 Plague Bearers for Feast of Blades
Start working on new article idea - kind of a monthly build something weird and new combo kit walk through type of thing - it is an idea.

Greg
Land Raider Crusader - once the Feast stuff is knocked out I can get to work on client stuff

Travis
More Cryx stuff to do - caster on a horse

Tim
More Marines from Dark Angels - biker guys

Will
10 Flesh hounds of Khorne

Don
Cygnar stuffs

Luis
More stuff most likely

Caleb
Necro Orks - look for the trukk conversions - they look pretty damned neat.

Really I always have work to do hah.  I had to clean up my paint area for the carpet coming in - then I get to recreate it a bit more - moveable with the baby boy coming.  Shit it is 3 weeks away and I am very very excited.  Got to see my niece today at my Brother in Laws and she is getting more personality.  That is when babies get exciting to me as they start to become little monsters.

Alright - let's look at some minis.  I hope to get a game in this Thursday with some kind of build like the Chaos one above.  I want to see if I should get more of my Maulerfiends done up.

You can see where the list came from.


Test SG Thunder Wolf Cav like guy - the plan for the army was each Thunder Wolf like option would look different - so people could figure it out easier.

More Flesh Tearers

These models are a pain to build haha.
Client gave me the idea - look for the other ones coming soon.
Starting working on some Frontline Batrep art for Warmachine/Hordes.



Tweaked stamp for the Athens open - love the Grot.

Woot - Been a busy 2 weeks



Man end of Fiscal month, 2 days a week baby classes, plus a busted toe (Ingrown sucks) makes for a very pulled apart Goatboy.  I had to drop the weekly blog post for last week just to ensure everything else got mostly done.  I am still behind on the art department - but that is life.  Woohoo!

I got no games in this week - took the time to try and catch up paint wise.  Maybe I will get a game this Thursday - if I get stuff done during the week.  I am having issues keeping these Cryx together - trying some GS and glue.  Either way - it should stick enough together to get things done I hope.  I hope haha.  Let's look at what I want to do this week.

Me.
Article - Written
Art for Frontline - Want to get 2-3 of the big batch done this week
Art for Black Blow Fly - need to get one part of it drawn
Art for Whitemetal  Games - design for army idea etc
Test Thunder Wolf for the Goats idea - but then I want to do this werewolf idea.  Argh
Maybe get cool Dreadknight Evil thing done - might go for a charity army thing.
Who knows what else - but I doubt it will be for me.

Feast of Blades Raffle Army
10 Pink Horrors
10 Plague Bearers

Caleb
1 Dakka/Necra Jet
1 Trukk/Barge/Thingie

Travis
3 Horse Guys
1 Horse Guy Warcaster

Anthony
1 Maulerfiend
1 Bel'akor

Greg
1 LRC for Inquisition - need to build this

Luis
7 more FT to get initial batch done

Tim
Start looking at biker marines and knights woohoo!

Will see how much I get done.  Man - our TV died yesterday.  I don't know if the storms got it - but it aint turning on.  Luckily we have another one upstairs so the wife got to see Dr. Who.  But still - ass again on my wallet getting hurt.  I have a car downpayment to pay soon - plus I paid the carpet bill.  Makes me wish I sold the knights buuuttt... Hahah - meh.  I had the cash to do it all - just don't have as much cash anymore.  So blah!

Got this list idea for straight Thunder Wolves/Werewolves etc.  If only we had decent ones that weren't metal like Confrontation models.

Champions of Fenris Detachment

HQ: Wolf Guard Battle Leader, SS, Thunder Hammer, Runic, Thunder Wolf
HQ: Wolf Guard Battle Leader, SS, Thunder Hammer, Runic, Thunder Wolf
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Thunder Wolf Cavalry X 6, SS X 6, Powerfist X 1
Thunder Wolf Cavalry X 6, SS X 6, Powerfist X 1
Firestorm Redoubt

It is dumb - it is big - and it is splashy.  It might not work but heck - it sounds rough as hell.

Just right now have to figure out what I want to do.  I think it is rough right now as I have a lot of client work to finish - once that gets slowed down a bit - then I can get to work on a list for myself.  Until then maybe I will play some Daemon stuff or at least just have fun with the Knights.  Woohoo.

Got another one to do - woohoo!

Orky Buzzbots aka Scarabs

The Face of Tesla?

He is making you a sandwich.

Yup - he works out.

The New Chaos Dread is pretty sweet.

More Flesh Tearers!

Cryx Warcaster guy from the video game?

He has gas!

Creepy Herald

Another one!
Stamp for the art I did earlier.  Waiting to see if they like it - I like the Grot.  Man it took me awhile to get this art to look right.  That is the issue with drawing vs painting.  Painting is relaxing and almost well - brain shut off and just work.  Art takes a lot longer to get working right.  When you try to draw and it isn't working - it is very very soul crushing.  It feels like you can't do anything right and you have to work through all the crap to get to something good.  It was one of the reasons why I quit comic.  I still had funny ideas and so did Wyatt - I just was having trouble getting the art out.  The new guy seems alright - and hopefully the animals won't be too mean in the comments.  It takes a lot to put yourself out there each week for free.  Meh...

Ok - that is it for now - I hope to get a game in.  The Nagash book is amazballs and I hope the Chaos one is awesome. I think I might do a fantasy Chaos Chariot army because well - it sounds awesome.
