Goatboy's Sunday Thoughts



Man babies suck up your time.  As does the fiscal end of month.  Woohoo.  But I am surviving and striving and driving and... painting still?  Woohoo!

I think I have to veto doing an Ork army for LVO.  I just don't have the time to get a new one ready to go.  This means I have to go Chaos of some sort.  Lists coming in a bit after I write up some paint list/thought stuff etc.  But it makes me sad about the Orks.  I still have ideas on how to get it to work - just not finding the time to get it done and practiced with.  Poops!

I did get a game in with Nick - played a meh Chaos Space Marine list as I still had all the pieces pulled out.  It was

Sorcer X 2 on Bikes
Chaos Lord on Juggernaut with stuff
30 Cultists
1 Sicarian
2 Helblades
2 Set of Chaos Spawn
3 Maulerfiends

He kicked my butt as I didn't roll well for penetration and other hits and just got left hanging in the wind.  It was alright as I tricked him last time and he didn't fall for it and went after the right squad.  I really hate the damn Saint from the sisters.   That lady rocks so many units with her super sword and pain in the ass deep strikes haha.  Too many heavy flamers dammit.  Still it was fun to get a game in even though it was a butt whooping.

Ok paint list

Me
3 Units of Nurglings I need to buy and build
3 More Horde arts for Frontline gaming
Some arts for Frontline based on drop zone commander
Art for design idea etc
Maybe work on Comic idea to doodle - will see if the week is slow enough

Mike K
11 more sisters of battle - primed
Lots of vehicles

Don S
Some Cryx stuff - some are built already - priming them now

Caleb
NecroOrk Stompa - this is where my Ork time is going to go

Luis
Flesh Tearers stuff

Woot - nothing too nutty - but yeah.  I am sure some other stuff will come in too that I will need to get done.  Waiting on this Knight stuff to get in to work on.  Woohoo!

Let's get on with LVO lists.

LVO List one - Basic and totally Copy and Paste nonsense

CSM Daemons + CSM Daemons Ally

HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

Ally
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

1850 pts of pure nonsense.  I have 4 Obj Secured troops which isn't bad.  I have armor 13 vehicles that are a pain and fast plus 3 Flying Dildo princes.  It looks like it could work - and I just need to paint up 3 sets of Nurglings and maybe another Grinder.  I will probably do another Gun prince as they will match the other ones.  So simple - basic and I think actually fun to play.  I go big and get involved haha.

The other one has more tricks involved.  In the form of dropping the ally and getting in a CSM - summoning function.

CSM Daemons + Black Leegion

HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

Ally - Black Legion
HQ: DP, MoN, Wings, Armor, Eternal Warrior Skull, Gift of Mutation, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer

This one just needs to get one box of Nurglings and I have everything else done already.  It has the summoning suite needed on the MoN price plus he won't die to some random Strength 10 shot if he gets it in the end.  The Dragon is still good and I feel having 3 could still be pretty scary for a lot of armies to face.  Look at something like this and get sad at the FW cost.

Crimson Slaughter

HQ: Bel'Akor
HQ: CSM Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar, Prophet of Voices, Melta bombs, Gift of Mutation
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Possessed X 5, MoT, Chaos Rhino, Combi-Melta
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition

I mean - this looks dumb as heck but it shoots a lot.  Plus those dragons are going to suck for anyone. I went with Be'lakor because it gives you shrouding automatically.  This is a help versus a lot of armies and keeps your Sicarians tough to remove.  If not Bel - I guess you could go into just Sorcerers but I think the Possessed one is just going to be summoning stuff.  It probably won't work but man - bullets will be coming at you from all over the place.  The CSM sorcerer is built this way so I could get 3 Sicarians.

Stupid - if I could do more then 2 sources Orks.

Ork Horde Detachment + Great Waagh Detachment + Greentide

Greentide
5 Units of 9 Slugga Boyz + Nob w/PK
5 Units of 10 Slugga Boyz
Warboss, PK

Ork Horde
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK, Finkin Cap - Warlord
HQ: Mad Doc
HQ: Painboy, Warbike
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
FA: Deff Koptas X 5, TWL Rokkits X 5

Great Waagh
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK, Da Big Bosspole
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK
Elites: Tank Bustas X 5, Bomb Squigg
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10

You have the big ole tide sitting in front then you have the Deff Squad running around causing issues.  You want to roll strategic and if you get lucky you can put all kinds of in the middle of the board and just be a huge threat.  Plus that bike squad is pretty dang scary to look at.  But again - 3 sources so sad panda pants.  Plus that is a lot of gretchin haha.

Bah!!! So lets get onto something I don did. 

First some Frontline Gaming art for battle reports.


Now some other arts.
And finally some arts for a team thing.  I like how the Daemon came out.
Some models to look at too.

It's Amazing What Little Extra Time I Have



I blame da baby hahaha.  He takes up a good amount of time and I have client work to do so that is done on any free time.  Plus I hope to get some art done too.  Ugh.  Too much to do hahaha.  And he is crying now downstairs... poor chunky munkey... But I keep moving along!

Paint List

Me
Probably nothing - depending on what I get to do to make myself happy - might build my stompa or start to build some Orks - will see.

Tim
Land Raider fix/build/etc
Libbie on a bike conversion by me

Luis
Some Flesh Tearers to fill in the holes for the new army book

Michael K
5 More Sisters
5 More funny hat IG
5 More Sisters
Once I knock out the sisters it is a vehicle dance party.  Hope to get this all knocked out by the end of December.

Caleb
Paint the NecroOrk Stompa - this will be on dock maybe this weekend.

I am still thinking about what I want to play for LVO.  I don't know if I want to go crazy with a build or just look at having some fun with some models and losing a game or two.  It is just tempting to play with crap and see what I can do.

I played a tournament 2 weekends ago in San Antonio.  It was a 2000 point, no limit event and I brought the following.

HQ: Bel'Akor
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Armor, MoN, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Daemonheart, Powerfist, Lightning Claw
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Hell Blade, Autocannons
FA: Hell Blade, Autocannons
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters, Malefic Ammunition, Dirge Caster

So a basic - CSM/CSM ally nonsense.  It was fun - I didn't lose a game but didn't win enough to do awesome in the Battle Point event but still came out of it with a win on Best Paint.  Man locally it is such a crap shoot with people and my paint so it is nice that other people enjoy the nonsense I bring.  My game memory is kind of fuzzy but here is some info.

Game 1 - Zach I think - playing unbound - 10 Farseers on jet bikes and some war gear to make them shrouding and other shit.  Eldrad and 10 Warlocks.  Ugh right... One of the reasons why no one will ever let Unbound actually play.  Still I won this game due to the mission giving you 2 KP for every force org slot that is destroyed or not there. I got 8 pts to begin and just played cagey enough to ensure I stayed alive.  Crazy enough I casted some spells and summoned some daemons.

Game 2 - Pete with White Scars marines plus other marines.  Bikes as usual.  A weird mission with objectives that you collected as you played then a big one in the middle in the end.  I ended up getting enough initial points to contest the middle and win in the end barely.  The Sicarian took a lot of firepower to go down and killed 2 Attack Bikes and helped finish off a Bike Squad.  Pete played too conservatively and that caused some issues.

Game 3 - Boyd with 3 Tall FW knights and 2 regular knights.  One of each of the tall ones.  This one was how many times could Boyd roll crap on a stomp.  I killed all the knights with assault.  Learned some Stomp rule stuff - you roll a d3 to see how many stomps you do and each unit gets one D6 roll to see what happens with the stomp.  So less scary if you don't see any 6's.  I would assault the knights on the side so the explosion of D in the middle didn't always hit me.  Boyd was cool and had some nice looking models.  Bel'Akor got 2 knights - Juggerlord got 1 knight, Maulerfiends helped kill the other 2.

Sorry if I butchered people's names or forgot stuff.  I had a good time hanging out with my friend Endar even though the wife was mad cuz I was gone almost the entire day.

Lists so far for LVO with levels of what needs to get painted to be ready to go.

Chaos/Daemons/Etc

Dumb list # 1 - Crimson Slaughter + Chaos Space Marines

HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
HQ: Chaos Lord, Bike, Daemonheart, Sigil of Corruption, MoN, Powerfist, Lightning Claw
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA:  Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Hellblade, Autocannons
FA: Hellblade, Autocannons
Heavy: Sicarian, Heavy Bolters, Malefic
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils

HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
Heavy: Maulerfiend

Painting needed - none! So really  this one is the easiest - ready to go.  I won't win much with it - but damnit it looks fun.  I could drop the Chaos lord and go with another Sorcerer if I felt like it.  It would free up a few points to get another troop.  Meh!

FMC Tzeentch seems to be a pretty good choice right now.  Getting reroll 2+ to 4+ saves is pretty strong so it might not be a bad idea.

Daemons + Daemon Allies
HQ: Fateweaver
HQ: Daemon Prince, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Lvl 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Lvl 3
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Lvl 3

HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Nurglings X 3

Painting - 2 boxes of Nurglings as I have a ton of Daemon Princes.  Summon stuff and go to town.  It seems like another - simple list just built to survive and win the game based on missions.

Orks + Ghaz
Ork Horde Detachment
HQ: FW Warboss on Bike
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK
HQ: Painboy, Bike
HQ: Mek, Rokkit
HQ: Mek, Rokkit
HQ: Mek
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10
FA: Deff Koptas X 5, TWL Rokkits X 5
LoW: Stompa, Grot Riggas

Ghaz Ghul Detachment
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK, Big Bosspole
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PK
Elites: Tank Bustas X 5
Troops: Gretchin X 10
Troops: Gretchin X 10

Paint - Almost the entire thing - but it is Orks and I love to build crazy bikerz. I want to build my stompa and try this out.  Heck it could work with the Stompa surrounded by Grots to keep the melta at bay - then I have 6 5+ rolls to get Hull Points back.  Plus I can shoot rokkits out of it too.  Meh - it looks goofy as all heck doesn't it.

Then of course I can do the Greentide as well.

Greentide
4 Squads of 9 Boyz plus Nob with PK and Eavy Armor
2 Squads of 9 Boyz plus Nob with PK
4 Squads of 10 Boyz
Warboss, Big Bosspole, PK

Ork Horde Detachment
Warboss, Lucky Stick, Mega Armor
Warboss, PK, Eavy Armor, Bosspole
Painboy
Gretchin
Gretchin
Gretchin
Warbuggies X 5, Rokkits X 5
Warbuggies X 5, Rokkits X 5
Mek Guns X 5, Smasha Gun X 5

Not really even painted at all - so the one most likely I won't do.  But this reads ok on paper - it might be good.

Hellblade thingie - I had another one done and broke a dragon apart to make this one.

Death Company Dread restoration!

Funny Hats!

No funny hats!

Final Knight

3 Rando bikers I found in the box to do!


Drop pod surprise!

Its Been a Bit - Baby, Life, Work, Etc



Man I am jonesing for a 40k game right now.  Hopefully I can get one next weekend - depending on what happens.  I am trying to make this SATX tournament - but I think family will trump my choices for the weekend :(.  The life of having people you enjoy to be around - sometimes hahaha.

Baby boy continues to get fat and happy.  Hopefully he lets us sleep a bit longer - but will see.  I painted up some more Chaos stuff to allow me to have 3 completed mauler fiends.  I know I used to have some but I sold them awhile ago and have always wanted more.  I wish we had a cool formation for them - could you imagine a unit of 5?  The Brawler Beef squad!

The new changes to the FAQ means Daemons are going to come out in drones during the next few events.  FMC is back - and led by the king jerk face know as Fateweaver.  I understand adding some spells to his heads as it would make sense he would have malefic - but I figure it would be better to just replace one of the "lores" he knows instead of just giving him another.

Look at this list idea I have for just an FMC list - small land simple.

Daemons of Chaos +  Crimson Slaughter

HQ: Fate weaver
HQ: Daemon Prince, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Lesser Gift, Greater Gift X 2
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Troops: Nurglings X 3
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Greater Gift, Exalted Gift
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Lesser Gift, Greater Gift X 2

HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Cultists X 10

Gives you the ability to make "Nurgle DP's" with shrouding off of Bel - you could still just play straight Nurgle with Fate as well.  You could swap the Lesser + 2 Greater Gifts to get an exalted but I don't think you need the portal as much as you used too.  Heck it might be better to put the book on the Slaanesh and have very tough to deal with MoT DP's.  Getting a 2+ reroll cover save off of Bel'Akor might be pretty spicy.

I have this list built out to go play for fun.

Crimson Slaughter + Black Legion

HQ: Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Prophet of Voices, Spell Familiar
HQ: Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar
Troops: Possessed X 5
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Hell Blade, Auto Cannon upgrade
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Sicarrian Relic Battle Tank

HQ: Sorcerer, Last Memory, Bike, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Troops: Chaos Cultists X 10
Heavy: Maulerfiend
FA: Hell Blade, Auto Cannon upgrade

This hits 1850 pts - has a summoning circle with the "Daemonic" Sorcerer from Crimson slaughter mixed with some extra wounds to help hide him etc.  It looks like a fun list to goof around with and probably won't lose all its games.  Plus I can say I played possessed haha.  Heck the whole thing is just mutated guys and doesn't get completely overrun with just Cultists.

Let's get me a paint list.

Me
Bols Article - Written - it is about formations
Art for Frontline - gonna have time during the holidays to hopefully draw as work slows down a bit - will see.
Clean up some DP builds to get them working - shit if I do FMC again I will just end up going Slaanesh instead of Tzeentch just cuz I like them better.  But heck who knows.
Fix a Dragon to be the other Hell Blade I need.

Tim
Knight # 3 - will get done by the weekend - then it is fixing some other stuff

Mike K
Sisters of battle - doing them in blocks of 5
Funny Hat IG guys - Command squad is next this week

Luis
Death Company Dread - gonna start fixing it later on today and maybe paint tonight.

Caleb
Finish NecroOrk Stompa to finish off commission - that is my hope this weekend if it isn't raining.

Man the rain in Austin sucked.  I had some things primed at least - but it slowed me down.  Heck I need to see if I can find a game maybe Wednesday night.  Will see if any buddies are still in town.

K - lets get some models to look at.  I have a lot actually to show so good times indeed.

My Siccarin - woot!

This is the non lasher tendril Maulerfiend - I got the Melta thingies added to it.  Zoom zoom!

I just wanted to paint a green one - so thus this one.  

Pink Sisters batch 1

Pink Sisters batch 2

Funny Hats! batch 1

Quick libbie build.

Knight #2 - storm trooper variant

Drew this for Sean cuz it is awesome he Lictor Shamed so many people!

Goatboy's Thursday? Man days get blurry



I am still painting!  I knocked out a bunch of stuff over the last few weeks.  Can't really do art but dammit I can paint!  Hahahaha.  Let's go with a paint list then some list nonsense.  I ordered the FW book and hopefully it will be here soon.  Got the Glothkin book too as I am sucker for that fluffy stuff at times.

Paint List

Me
Article for BOLS - maybe something neat?
Sicarian - it is primed - gonna finish it this weekend
Maulerfiend - it is a weird one with wheel leg thingies - but it might work.
Build 3rd fiend

Nick R
Finish off small sisters squad - Done!
10 Repentia - Done!

Tim V
Knight # 2
Knight # 3?
LR
Drop Pod

Luis P
Death  Company Dread fix up

Caleb
NecroOrk Stompa

I think some other stuff too so who knows I am sure I am missing something.  I got some things sitting there waiting for me to get some major time to rework - a Nid Army.  It might see some work as Sean won the 11th Company via Lictor Shaming.  Heck I might have to work on a plastic model Lictor conversion at some point.  The new plastic venonthropes give some nice tentacle heads.  Hrm...

Played a game this past weekend with the following.

CSM Crimson Slaughter/CSM Allies

HQ: Sorc, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Fam, Force Axe, Meltabombs
HQ: Sorc, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Fam, Force Axe, Meltabombs
HQ: Sorc, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Fam, Force Axe, Meltabombs
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Hellblade, Rending Autocannons
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher
Heavy: Maulerfiend
Heavy: Sicarian, Hvy Bolters Sponsons, Rending Bullets, Dirge Caster

Played versus Nick Rose and ended up winning on Primary and First Blood.  We misplayed the Saint but really it didn't matter in the end as I used Shrouding bubbles to keep a lot of stuff alive via Sacred Missiles from Exorcists and other nonsense.  In the end I took his Emperor's Will Objective and contested mine.  I lost the Maelstrom mission but really you don't have to play for it in these types of scenarios.  It is why I weight the Maelstrom just as high as the primary and the total points add up to the winner.  But meh - metagaming the mission is always a part of the game.

Things I liked.

Hellblade - seems to be pretty good.  It dies if you sneeze at it - but it gives assault armies from CSM a change to pop vehicles and mess up assaults by getting in the way.  They should just cost 115 as you will always buy the upgrade for the 6 TWL rending Autocannons.  Psycannons were good right?

Sicarian - don't waste your points on the sponson upgrades or the rending nonsense.  It isn't worth it.  Still this isn't a terrible tank at all.

Shrouding is the shit for this type of army.  Most of the time.  I got 2 Shroudings, 1 Invisible and 1 Endurance.  Not to bad but you run out of WC dice pretty quick when throwing 2 Shrouds, 1 Invisible and hopefully an Endurance.  I never had the dice for Shriek or Smite etc.  And once a caster ate it I lost a lot of abilities to spread out the mind bullets.  But Spell Familiar is the shit.

I still love my Chaos Spawn haha.

Been brainstorm dumb Ork super kill squad lists.  It utilizes the different formations to make a Hit and Run monster with lots of HQ's running around with Deff Koptas.  Some ideas that just cost to much to make the army.

2 Source Version
Ork Horde Detachment/Morgrok's Bossboyz

Ork Horde
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PowerKlaw, Bosspole
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PowerKlaw, Bosspole
HQ: Mad Doc
Troops: Gretchin
Troops: Gretchin
Troops: Gretchin
FA: Deff Koptas X 5, Buzzsaws X 3, TWL Rokkits
FA: Blitz Bomba
FA: Blitz Bomba
Heavy: Mek Guns X 5, Smasha Gun X 5
Heavy: Mek Guns X 5, Smasha Gun X 5
Heavy: Mek Guns X 5, Smasha Gun X 5

Morgrok's Bossboyz
HQ: Big Mek, Mega Armor - Warlord
HQ: Big Mek, Mega Armor
HQ: Big Mek, Mega Armor
HQ: Warboss, Bike, PowerKlaw, Bosspole
HQ: Weirdboy, Lvl 2

So basically you got a unit of 5 Deffkoptas, 3 Warbosses, Mad Doc, and a Weird Boy.  They are Fearless, have 12 Str 10 Attacks, 4 Str 8 Attacks, 6 Str 7 Attacks, then some Str 3 and Weirdboy nonsense.  The unit is T5 and has hit and run plus FNP.  And it can go somewhat fast at times too.  Not to shabby if I do say so myself.  Oh it also has Scout and everyone has Ere We Go.  Woohoo!

But shit all those Mek Guns would suck to buy too.  Oh yeah the Mega Armored Big Meks go with them so they can move and fire.  T7 jerks will be a pain as well as a ton of AP1 shooting.  The Blitz Bombers are interesting as Bombing runs might be a way to get around invisibility and Jinking.  I have to read up on it more.  But still - ideas!

Look for more Chaos thoughts later on when I get my FW book in.  Now some painted stuff and I call it a night.

A quick Warmachine commission first.








Woot some sisters.

Dark Age models and client wanted different skin tones.  The Purple might be too much but screw it - they look cool and weird.

Black and White Knight is in the house!

Wednesday Fun Day

This guy is in an awesome band in Austin - White Ghost Shivers.


Woohoo - I am starting back up work tomorrow.  Hopefully my wife can handle the monster.  He has started to get more personality and enjoyed behind held staring at your face.  I think he is planning on ways to get my eyes.  Will see.  I've actually gotten a lot done over these last 3 weeks.  I should knock out 2 commissions by this weekend.

Finished the Cryx Commission
Will finish another Warmachine one too
NecroOrks will get done completely soon
LoTD Bikers got done as well
Plus other stuff.

I just never stopped.  I didn't get as much art done but that is due to being tired affects drawing not really painting models.  Painting is a lot more relaxing for me.  But that is life haha.  I also have some other commissions coming soon too - I am sure this Nid one will get started as well as some other things.  Let's write up my week.

Me
Bols Article - Written
Hobby idea - need to write it
Maybe some Orks - But most likely going to do some Chaos Stuff
Who knows what else - got an itch to play some  Chaos and I just bought that new FW Chaos book - so it means testing some things out first.
Frontline Arts - want to get them done so I can get some Nurgle nonsense

Don
Mercenary 10 man box
2 More random guys - primed should be done tonight

Caleb
Ork Stompa Necron thingie

Tim
Knight
Finish off bikers
LR
Drop Pod

Luis
Death Company Dread - really waiting on what the BA do when the book comes out - might be a big flurry of stuff soon.

Nick R
Some Sisters stuff - etc

I am sure other things too as I just never stop.  I just like painting models haha.  I am waiting on some clients to tell me what they want and I can get started on them too.

Let's look at a CSM list idea using FW.

Crimson Slaughter
HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Lightning Claw, Daemonheart, Veteran of the Long War, Gift of Mutation
HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5
FA: Hell Blade, Helstorm Autocannon
FA: Hell Blade, Helstorm Autocannon
Heavy: Chaos Relic Sicaran Battle Tank, Dirge Caster
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils

CSM Black Legion
HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Lit Claw, Veteran of the Long War, Gift of Mutation
Troops: Cultists
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils

Basically I try for Shrouding then Invisibility the Chaos Lord Unit.  From there I am just going around shooting things as needed.  I might have enough to knock out a knight with a dual charging set of Maulerfiends.  It should only have one attack and then I can get to going with a bunch of Str 10 hate hits.  If I get lucky with the hammer of Wraths I might knock out 2 Hull Points.  It should look fun and be a very extreme list.  In fact it is probably the list I am building next.  I kind of wish I could have 2 Chaos Spawn units but alas this one will work.  I could knock out one lord for a Sorc to get more WC and maybe another Sicaran.  Interesting thoughts.  Can't wait to get that book in.

Ok some models to showcase and then I go back downstairs to work on painting and building some models.



Woot - got this scheme down!

Magnetized metal backpack. It stays on with Magic.

Black Knights 1

Black Knights 2

The last of the bikers.  I am sure Brandon is going to send me more.  I got this scheme down.

Worst models I have ever put together.  To give you an idea - legs/chest, head, 2 arms, quiver, scabbard, sword hilt, and bow.  Those are the metal parts.  Why PP why?

I always liked her.  Made her mean looking.
