Goatboy's Thursday Post of Postiness!



Man this last week has been rough.  I had to put my dog down on Monday after a week of trying to get her better.  Force feeding, vet visits, and worry.  My awesome wife did so much by force feeding her and we are pretty rocked by it.  You just can't let an animal suffer if they are not getting better.  Its just too much.

So no dogs for awhile.  I want my son to grow up with a doggie but we loved that River dog.  It did kill a lot of my model time so the models below are pretty light for a normal week and a half.  Still I am getting back on the wagon and knocking out some stuff.

Man it has been raining so much here I can't prime for shit.  ugh - Got my knight primed to get me out of my funk for sure.

Oh - Mad Max is friggin awesome.  If seeing that doesn't make you want to play Orks - well then you hate fun.

First - I did play the Alamo GT last weekend.  I wasn't announced as Second overall due to a point mess up but later that night they check and saw I was indeed 2nd overall.  I lost at the end to the overall winner - Ben Mohile.  This is the second event in Texas where me and Ben both took home 1st and 2nd overall.  He was playing Decurion Necrons with Praterions and Canoptek Harvest.  Rough stuff and I goofed up some movement that probably cost me the game.  Still my mind wasn't awesome and I was more so winning off the roughness of my list on some armies.

If I played it again I would drop the Culexus and instead go with better HQ's ala Runic Armor etc.  I still think adding casting might be better just because randomly having Shrouding, Invisibility, Psychic Shriek, etc might be good.

Maybe this would be good as a DA/SW list

DA
HQ: Libbie, Bike, Lvl 2, Force Axe, Meltabomb
HQ: Libbie, Bike. Lvl 2, Force Axe, Meltabomb

Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4

Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4

But man the reroll to hits from the Chaplain in the first round of combat helped so much.  Might just be better with Chaplains.  Still the list worked and was rough for a lot of armies.  And you had enough punch to remove Necron stuff.  It was hard still but it could be done.

The new Knight has me thinking of finding ways to add one into lists.  I am thinking the gun one might be a good stand back unit.  Heck even the Objective Secured group might be good.  I really have to see what Marines end up being before I can really decide.  Still... blargh.

And of course I am fighting the urge to make a super Killa Ork army that will lose like a boss.

Ork Horde Detachment/Ghaz Detachment/Mogrok's Boss Boyz

3 Regular Warbosses with PK
1 Super Strong ini striking Warboss
4 Big Meks with PK like things
5 Deff Koptas that give extra stuff and shoot ok
1 FNP jerk hole

It could work and would probably be fun to build/paint/etc.

Alright onto work stuff.

Let's look at a paint list

Me

Arms are swap able with both sides - with only the fist having to be on his right.

My Favorite Knight - the come get some knight.  Plus look - the base isn't lava hah.

Sorry for the lack of picture updates.  Look for art and more models next time as I get back on this hobby horse.

Been a Week already.



Rough week - dog had to go to the vet.  Man it has been hard just to try and catch up. Got the bump up in pay at work - so maybe in a few months things will be better - but man it sucks but still.  Blah!  It's like there is always something coming in to kick my savings out a bit.  I want a new bed damnit.

Finished up Chris's Dark Eldar - all of them are listed below.  Woot getting that knocked out.  Also did some a test Nid for maybe a future commission too.  Got a lot done this weekend and I just need to finish or figure out one more mini for my Alamo GT list.

What I submitted.
DA/SW Champs of Fenris w/ Assassin

Assassin - Culexus

DA CAD
HQ: Chaplain, Bike, Meltabomb
HQ: Chaplain, Bike, Meltabomb
HQ: Ravenwing Command Squad X 5, Apoc, Grenade Launcher, Ravenwing Banner

Champs of Fenris -

Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 3

Decided to drop all Psychics and see how the Assassin does.  It will probably be meh - but will see.  It is a list to try things out haha.  Plus it should be fun and simple to play.  And if I play vs another death star I can go be a jerk with the Assassin.

Like the new Knight book.  I was able to swap out an unopened Knight plus the 18 bucks to get a new one.  I plan on magnetizing it as much as I can.  I like 2 of the Knights the most - the Gallant is very good and I think the Warden has it's place. 3 Formations are not bad with the big one being interesting in an all knight build and the other 2 - The Gallant Gang and the one of Each gang also being good.

Some list ideas with Knights in mind - what I might build towards if I can every have extra cash.

Gallant Lance
Gallant X 3 - no upgrades
Flesh Tearers Detachment thingie
HQ: Sang Priest, Auspex
Troops: Scouts
FA: Drop Pod
FA: Drop Pod
Sentinels of Terra Ally
HQ: Libbie, Lvl 2
Elite: Centurion Devs X 3, Gravs X 3, Omni Scope
Troops: Scouts
Heavy: Centurion Devs X 3, Gravs X 3, Omni Scope

This is pretty simple - with your Knights moving forward and Grav Cents to help clean things up, make GC Ini 1 or other Super Heavy walkers Ini 1.

I wonder if running a Pask Star might be ok - start them in reserves.  I think the Marine one is the best.  You could get away with one Centurion Squad and maybe run an assassin for some pinpoint annoyance.

I also like the Triparite Lance.  The Fact all 3 are one big fat unit is pretty neat and with some shrouding and other tricks you could do some really annoying things depending on what you rolled.  Shit invisibility would be bonkers on that "unit".

I think we have to wait what Regular marines will get and if Drop Pods become a straight FA choice.  that would mean no need to ally and you could do some nutty things. 

Let's Look at the paint list for this week.

Me
Bols Article - that way I don't have to worry about it while playing a tournament
Build the new Knight and Magnetize it so I know how
Figure out a Culexus Assassin

Christian
6 Plague Drones - test one is almost done.

Don S
Warmachine - probably just build it

Luis P
Get Biker Command squad finished building
More Drop pods
Fix second Storm Raven

Bryce
FW commission when it gets here

Will

Now onto some models.


Cronos # 1
Talos #3
Talos #4
Last Talos yay!
Finecast Wracks
Non finecast Wracks
Last Destroyers - these guys have swapped Heads.
Drop Pod 1 for Luis
Basic Chaplain 1

Goatboy's Thursday Posts?



Woohoo - another week and a half and a ton more stuff done.  I just keep chunking things out as usual.  I just keep busy.  Lately my output is hamper a bit by my lovely child - so I am just making sure I get quality time.  Paint at first then building at times as my brain starts to shut down.  It is probably the reason for random updates too.  My fault haha.  But oh well.   Lets start with my paint list.

Paint List
Me
BoLS article - might be titled I don't want no Apocalpyse in my 40k!
Destroyer Cult for 500 pt event - Lord, 2 sets of Destroyers are done - one more to do tonight
No idea what else... I think I might be the Necron lord clam shell to do for new army

Chris C
Talos #3 - Primed
Talos #4 - Getting built
Talos #5 - Waiting to come in
Cronos #1 - Primed
Wracks X 10 - Built

Christian
Plague Drones X 6 - should be in soon.  It got shipped earlier this week.

Alan/Will
Soaking the LR Spartan thinge - will hopefully build it late Sunday night after event

Luis
Drop Pod - Built and Primed
Storm Raven - Need to fix
5 Man Command squad for Marines - Grav etc using some FW bikes
I think something else have to look haha - more pods too.

Don S
Cryx cuz he hates me!

I have some other stuff coming in - a clean up/paint up of some Nids - doing a test first to make sure. There is also looking at a FW order thing with Zhufor. It is in the talk phases so will see.  Beyond that there is always stuff for myself I want to get done.  I found my Necron Scheme and I want to continue on with it.  It isn't dirty or broken looking so yay something different.

Got a 500 pt event this weekend.  I am taking a newly painted Destroyer Cult.  The Lord has a Warscythe but that is it.  It should be fun and I like how they are painted haha.  The rules are no characters over 150 pts and limits on 2+ saves so it should be alright.  Plus it got me to get started on my Necron army.  I think I am going to get some tubs to set up army builds - that way I can put stuff in and pull it out when I want to start working on it.  I have this Ork army with a Stompa I want to do real bad.

Necron initial build Idea

Necron CAD
Orikan the Diviner
Cryptek, Solar Staff
Lychguard X 9, Night Scythe
Immortals X 5
Immortals X 5
Tomb Blades X 10, Nebuloscope X 10

Destroyer Cult Formation
Destroyer Lord, Warscythe, Nightmare Shroud, Phase Shifter
Destroyers X 3
Destroyers X 3
Destroyers X 3

Canoptek Harvest Formation
Spyder
Wraiths X 6, Whip Coils X 6
Scarabs X 3

I have most of this - probably juts need one box of Lychguard and then a Tomb Spyder.  I should have enough random Scarabs laying around or can ask a buddy for some.  It just seems fun and simple and feels random enough to let me out play my opponent instead of out mathing my opponent.

After painting the Destroyer Cult I am going to do the Canoptek Harvest.  That way I can work on units/parts/etc. at a time and still keep up with commissions.

Orks will be coming as I want to get a Stompa working at some point.  Pajama Pants showed it can be done and once we see how the Eldar pan out with events - it might be worth it to invest and look at.  But man those Dscythes will suck butt.  Just need to build my crazy Ork Bike death squad damnit.

Models to look at
Woot - bloody and evil.  Like the technical paint - gonna try that mars red stuff soonish.  Need to buy it too hah.

This guy is pretending to be an airplane!!! ARROOOOO!!!!

This guy is out to get some butter and chocolate to make you a cake.  A death CAKE!!!!

BLUE - not dirty or rusty!  Lava bases cuz well - a display board I have will be lava so might as well match them all to it.

He tells you what to do! King Hater!

More guys - squad # 2 woot!

Speeder storm - gonna fun a Heavy flamer to replace the bolter - All the guys in the back are magnetized to come out.

The guy in the back is checking out the front guys bald spot.

Scouts?

Scouts?

Post post post - yay!



Woohoo - things are looking up even though I am sad about the Eldar book.  Still - There is hope so will see.  I don't play them cuz I like to keep friends hahaha.

Let's get with a paint list

Me
Most likely nothing - unless I want to paint up a different guy to complete the SW/DA thing - more chat later
BoLS article - maybe Eldar related?  Maybe how the Meta might shift.

Greg
2 Sets of Cents done
Scout Storm - Need to build
Scouts themselves need to build and paint too

Luis
Storm Raven fix/paint etc number 2
Maybe built a drop pod and hate life

Alan
Chaos FW Land Raider - need to get it soaking this week

Chris C
Has some Dark Eldar to do - Coven style!

Christian
6 Plague Drones whenever they come in

Woot this will help get some finances in check haha.  If I can finish some stuff.  I got a bump at work so that will help when it starts up.  Trying to get another move up so will see.  Will see!  Babies are expensive.

I don't want to get into a pity party on the Eldar book so instead let's go into the something I played with this last weekend at an Event.  I went 2-1 (last game was a tie but we didn't do the tertiary mission so I gave it to the guy so he could win).

Played the DA/SW list I wrote about before.  I preformed really well with the only thing being I only rolled one decent power during the entire game - invisibility once and most of the time I didn't get the spells or forgot to throw to Force or shrouding.  It makes me think it might work better to just have more muscle in the form of dual chaplains and dual WgBL's.  It is simpler, I don't forget spells, and lets me crush things.

Rd 1 - Mike with White Scars plus BA.  Bikes, Command, BA Drop pods with lots of Melta.  I scouted up first, tried to get first blood - failed and then survived the response.  Then I got involved in killing things and left Mike with drop pods on turn 4.  We called it from there.  Mikes army was painted really well and it was fun playing painted vs painted.  Mike hasn't gotten revenge on me yet and I expect some beatings to come from him soon - either at Alamo GT or Wargames Con.

Rd 2- Robert aka Ricky Bobby.  He was playing AM with a Knight.  Vulture, vendetta, some Chimeras and guys.  Turn 3 I had killed the Knight and all the chimeras.  He called it from there as I was about to remove all the foot dudes and start chasing down flyers with TWL plasma in the butt.  Full points for me.

Rd 3 - Local Damien with Necron Decurion.  This was a rough match as we showed the issues with the missions by not letting Ties get any points.  It ended up with me getting First Blood, Line Breaker and him getting Warlord and Line Breaker.  It would have been a 2 v 2 tie and taken us both out of the game.  The key to losing was failing 2 hit and runs in a row.   If I could have gotten out I would have killed at least 2-3 more squads to put me ahead on the primary which was Kill Points.

All in all this was a good test for the army.  It feels like a good fit in the ATC/ETC style format where you can let it prey on specific builds.  I don't know how it would do come the Eldar Apocalypse but scouting up and getting in close can mean death to the bikers.  It might be worth it to either change it up and add in Marines to get Loth or if the event allows 3 sources do something insane like this.

I got like 15 pts left I could do something dumb with I think - but this sure looks dumb right?  And no Centurions so I am nice right?

I still might play the big fat unit for Alamo GT.  Something just seems interesting to get a huge unit of nonsense coming at you.

DA CAD plus Company of the Great Wolf

One huge super unit cuz I give no Effs!

Still thinking of the Khorne thingie.  I know 3 Grinders will be Key to any list I run - I just need to figure out how to get everything else I want.

HQ: Khorne Lord, Jugger, Sigil, PF, Lit Claw
HQ: Khorne Lord, Jugger, Sigil, PF, Lit Claw
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood Reaper
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood Reaper
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer

Heavy: Soul Grinder, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, Baleful Torrent

Chaos Space Marine Allies
HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Axe of Blind Fury, Sigil, Meltabombs, Gift of Mutation
Troops: Cultists X 10

I could go with a different Chaos Lord set up as I have the points.  Daemonheart might be good.  Heck there are others too.  It is a thought.  This seems ok as it has 3 jugger lords coming at you - enough dragons to cause issues and you can keep your guys safer maybe.  Maybe haha.  I wonder if will see just 3-4 Grinders plus Heldrakes with the Slaughter Cult plus CAD?  Or just a shit ton of Grinders.

I still see 2 units of Centurions being the standard.  Heck I bet you could do some nonsense with Sentinals of Terra if you wanted to find ways to get pods in all of them.  Here is a dumb idea using just 2.

Sentinels of Terra

HQ: Libbie, Lvl 2, Auspex, Force Axe
HQ: Libbie, Lvl 2, Auspex, Force Axe
Elites: Centurion Devs X 3, Grav Cannon + Amp X 3, Omni Scope
Elites: Centurion Devs X 3, Grav Cannon + Amp X 3, Omni Scope

Flesh Tearers Strike Force

HQ: Libbie, Lvl 2, Auspex, Force Axe
Troops: Scouts X 5, Meltabomb
FA: Drop Pod
FA: Drop Pod
FA: Drop Pod
FA: Drop Pod

That's 4 Pods of Centurions - don't think bikes can live through that.  Plus you have 8 WC dice to throw stupid stuff in and maybe stop a spell too.  And boy doesn't that look dumb?

Onto the hobby aspects I like.




Centurions reporting for duty

Goatboy's Really late post



Man - there is nothing worse then having to go to a boot camp for work.  It was for a computer certification - MEF or CECP.  I passed so that is good.  It just means I have to now look at another Cert in the coming months.  Woohoo!  Still  - it made my week very very rushed, busy, and tiring.  Still I got stuff done because - this stuff is calming for me.  Woohoo!

My DA army is complete and I just need to build a display board.  I already know the thing I need to get and can get it painted up in less then a day.  Might need to get a hot glue gun but will see.  The boy is still doing good and I am sure you will read a post being sad he got into my nerd room at some point haha.

Paint list

Me
Nothing for me to paint until I start a new army - Crons or Orks
Art wise - I don't think I have anything on the horizon right now

James L
Finished the last Riptide this week - woot!

Lance K
Bunch of Empire stuff I just finished today

Greg S
Marines and more marines - cents, friends, etc.  Building and paint woohoo - I think Red and Cream is what the colors will be.

Chris C
Might have a harlie commission not do - lots of dudes black and white - shouldn't be too hard.

Christian
9 Plague drones if he wants me to do it.

Luis
Try to get 2 Storm Ravens out at some point

Brandon
Eldar Night flyer thing I built today while watching Daredevil - it is good - need to get it attache to a base well.  Damn you FW!

Will
Forge world tank - need to soak then I can get to building it.

I am sure I am missing something too - but my brain is all about getting some food in a sec.

Let's see - Daemonkin list ideas.  A buddy loves the idea of tons of Grinders - and I think it might have merit.

6 Grinders with Baleful torrent comes out to 930 pts.   This leaves you room for - maybe some kind of dog rush thingie?  Or just Blood thirsters?

Bloodcult thingie Decurion
HQ: Normal Bloodthirster - 250
Elite: Possessed X 5 - 150
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Leader dude - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Leader dude - 85
Troops: Cultists X 8

Formation: The D Bloodthirster - 275pts

Heavy Warmachine formation
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155

It is a lot of guys and you have 3 guys to sac for a daemon prince if you want.  You will be trying to get FNP most of the time to keep your Thirsters alive.  This just looks dumb as hell too haha.  So many grinders doing grinder things haha.

Other thoughts would be to do a normal list - something like this.

Daemonkin + CSM Ally

HQ: Chaos Lord, Jugger, Sigil, PF, LC - 185
HQ: Chaos Lord, Jugger, Sigil, PF, LC - 185
Troops: Blood letters X 8, Leader - 85
Troops: Blood letters X 8, Leader - 85
FA: Flesh Hounds X 10 - 160
FA: Flesh Hounds X 10 - 160
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
Heavy: Maulerfiend - 130
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils - 140
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils - 140

CSM
HQ: Chaos Lord, Jugger, Sigil, Blinding Axe of Fury, Meltabombs, Gift of Mutation - 190
Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170

1850 on the nose - and it has 3 Juggerlords so I feel satisfied.  Plus I get to use the Axe of Blinding Fury.

Other dumb ideas - wouldn't 3 Grinders plus 3 Heldrakes be pretty rough to deal with?  2 Thirsters added in and you got a rough - balls to the walls Khorne list?

HQ: Super thirster - 300
HQ: Super thirster - 300
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85

FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
Heavy: Soul Grinder - 155
Heavy: Soul Grinder - 155
Heavy: Soul Grinder - 155

You got 20 pts left too maybe use?  But this looks rough as heck too right?  You can try to fight it into the Bloodhost but it gets harder with the Possessed Tax you need in there.  Still it is interesting to think that a new book is really looking good at just being used a single choice etc.  No other allies or other nonsense.

Speaking of dumb stuff - look at this Dark Eldar idea I didn't come up with but chatted about etc.

Dark Eldar CAD + Covente Coterie Detachment (Haemonculus)

HQ: Haemonculus, Crucible of Malediction, Webway Portal - 125

HQ: Haemonculus, Crucible of Malediction, Webway Portal - 125
Elites: Wracks X 5 - 50
Elites: Wracks X 5 - 50

I have weird points left - but it seems it could be a weird spoiler army.  It would wreck some psychic heavy armies.  Each Crucible causes a str 6 no saves of any kind wound to any unit with a psyker within 3d6 inches of the guy.  So you come down, drop the caskets and maybe kill some Heralds.  It seems it could work.  Then you have a ton of poison shots.  It looks like it is designed to screw up those Centurion stars and other psychic heavy stars.  Fun times.

Some models to look at and I am out!







Plus some more Frontline art.

I wanted to get a game in but the boy has a cold so that is looking less likely tomorrow.  Poop cuz the new army list is almost done.  5 more damned models to finish it too.  For those wondering here is the initial 2 Force Org build.

Basically I get 2 big death squads that run around and punch things.  Of courser the idea of making it an even bigger huge death squad is tempting too.

This gets pretty stupid as it is one huge unit of insanity that runs around and tries to do stuff.  I am thinking no Psykers and just go straight aggression with two units might be better.  Meh the big list just sounds goofy as hell which makes me giggle inside.

The Khorne Daemonkin book comes out at the roughest time as it just sounds fun to play.  I love that you can make an Iron Warriors style list with a ton of Daemonic engines everywhere.  Here is one that is probably better then the one I posted on BOLS.  You all know I just like to make people mad sometimes on BOLS.  Plus every time I read a comment that is like - who let him post I just want to say - I've been doing this for 7 years bro... 1-3 times a week.  Suck a bunch of butt.

This might work - you got the big unit of Dogs moving up with 3 crazy Characters.  You want to get the Bloodtithe going and you have some easy to kill things.  Who knows if this would be any good - it just seems interesting.  It is a neat book as Mono book seems to work best for the army.  I still like the idea of just tons of Daemon engines on the table.  I also wonder if the big Khorne Dozer might actually work.

Hopefully I will have this DA list finished beyond making 1 or 2 new Wolf Guard Battle Leaders.  If I feel like making the huge smash list of nonsense.


Finishes off that small Scout squad - 1 more to go.

Wah... another command squad... shenanigans
