Goatboy's Somewhat Consistent Post

I have actually been playing weekly lately.  Practicing for ATC and basically reconfigured the list back to what I ran at Alamo and almost won it with.  I think this is the best, consistent, list I could use.  I did one small tweak - change the Furies to MoT.  This is cheaper and allows my herald of Khorne to take another lesser gift.  It gives me an extra Attack too and he becomes a marine killer.

Basic list

Daemonic Incursion
Daemon Lord - Fateweaver

Core - Murder Horde
Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Lesser  Gift X 2
Flesh Hounds X 5 - 8 units

Furies X 5, MoT

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

Basically I found the double Gatling Knights were cool but the Warp Storm just went to something ok instead of something powerful.  I find with the Fate Reroll and single Dice reroll I can throw out a +1 Inv save, get some daemonettes, or even go after a caster on the other side.  The dogs help me control who hits the Knights and having access to a D Close combat attack made this set up a lot stronger.  Overall I feel confident in the list and have played 7 games with it so far and feel like I can kick butt with it.

Thus tomorrow I throw down with the Tetrad plus 2 CC knight build.  The 1850 army list shows up in my Monday article with chatter on how to make it 2000 points.  Might be testing 2000 points as War Games Con is 2000 points this year.  Seems fun and hopefully I can kick ass with 6 models on the table top.

Let's do a paint list - it is kinda all over the place the next few weeks.  I finished a FW commission that will probably move onto other stuff for  Chaos later on.  Knocked out the Space Sharks as well.

Nothing really for myself -
Art wise - rework and brighten logo and do some illustration work for front signage. - should have initial logo done later on this weekend
Bols Article - written

Imperial Knight build/paint - should get worked on this week.  Got done with a FW build which leaves me open to some smaller/tough builds.  Full magnets.

3 Vendettas - need to use some of the lascannons from centurions to do the conversion - will have pics - should get them built tomorrow.
Then it is onto marines for him later on

Brandon V
6 Centurions conversion holding the gun like - well a gun.  Arm change, gun change etc.
6 Tau thingies - the small suits that are stealth?  Already build - just need to prime and paint

James L
Chaos guys - got to open the box yay!

Finish off Chaos Dwarves - got 10 Gargoyles primed and ready to paint this weekend.  Will do another 10 and then have 2 big guys to finish up and one random walking guy.  Light is at the end of the tunnel haha.

If I missed anything shoot me an email to remind me.  That should cover most of it.

Let's get to some models and some art.  I knocked out some Frontline stuff for AoS.

A heck of a lot funner to paint then it is to build.  I got this Red scheme down haha.

MoT furies - Reaper Bones see through Flame Daemon lady thingie.  It is weird - primer on it leaves it sticky but any reg paint is fine on top.  Annoying but these guys look decent.  Black, blues to reds.

Quick drop pod.  Inside is basic metal.

Woot more Chaos Dwarves - again more fun to paint then to build.

Hey - have you seen my severed head?

these guys are both cavities.

Immortal unit

This is the last of the Space Sharks.  Yay!

Finishing off the AoS art for Frontline Articles.

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

Heresy Iron Hands

Greg S

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
