Goatboy - Tournament this weekend in Houston



Heading out to Asgard Games this weekend for a no comp 40k tournament with Darkwynn and Jwolf. The question is do I play what I plan on bringing to Da Boyz GT or go with just something different? For those wondering, this is the current build list I want to play for the Boyz. It is an 1850 point tournament for those wondering.

HQ: Wolf Lord, Bike, Saga of the Bear, Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield
HQ: Wolf Priest, Bike, Meltabombs
HQ: Wolf Priest, Saga of the Hunter
HQ: Rune Priest, JaWs, Living Lightning
Elites: Wolf Scouts X 5, Power Weapon, Meltaun, MoW
Elites: Wolf Guard Pack X 3
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Power Weapon, Bike - Swiftclaw Bikers
Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Powerfist, Combi Melta - Wolf Scouts
Wolf Guard, Thunder Hammer, Stormshield - Blood Claws
Troops: Grey Hunters X 10, Meltagun x 2, MoW, Rhino
Troops: Grey Hunters X 10, Flamer x 2, MoW, Rhino
Troops: Blood Claws x 6, Power Weapon, Rhino
FA: Swiftclaw Bikers X 5, Power Weapon, Attack Bike, Multi-Melta
Heavy: Long Fangs X 6, Missile Launcher X 5
Heavy: Long Fangs X 6, Heavy Bolter X 5

I know one of the Wolf Guard is just crazy but I build the model and it looks cool. The ThunderHammer Storm shield combo just fits the idea of running with a pack of Blood Claws :).

Other army lists I could play follows

Fabius Bile
HQ: Fabius Bile
HQ: Chaos Lord, Daemonic Weapon
Elites: Possessed X 8, Mark of Tzeetnch, Rhino
Troops: CSM X 10, Mark of Nurgle, Bile upgrade, Meltagun X 2, Asp Champ, Power Fist, Rhino
Troops: CSM X 10, Mark of Khorne, Bile upgrade, Meltagun X 2, Asp Champ, Power Fist, Rhino
Troops: CSM X 10, Mark of Slaanesh, Bile upgrade, Flamer X 2, Asp Champ, Power Weapon, Rhino
Troops: Summoned Daemons X 5
Troops: Summoned Daemons X 5
Heavy: Obliterators X 3

It is solid - plays solid if not flashy and looks good on the table top. It has that random factor that is usually fun with any kinda of goofy army, plus I can say stupid stuff like - Bile it up. And I get a chance to get my Chaos Lord to actually work. He has rolled a 1 and then died the next turn both games he has been used in. Damnit he will work at some point.

Daemons
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Chariot, Master of Sorcery. Bolt of Tzeentch, Breath of Chaos
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Chariot, Master of Sorcery. Bolt of Tzeentch, Breath of Chaos
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Unholy Might, Fury of Khorne
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Unholy Might, Fury of Khorne
Elites: Bloodcrushers X 3, Musician, Icon of Chaos
Elites: Fiends of Slaanesh X 6, Unholy Might
Elites: Fiends of Slaanesh X 6, Unholy Might
Troops: Plaguebearers X 5
Troops: Plaguebearers X 5
Troops: Plaguebearers X 5
FA: Seekers of Slaanesh X 10, Icon of Chaos
Heavy: Soul Grinder, Tongue, Phlegm
Heavy: Soul Grinder, Tongue, Phlegm

This is a lean and mean Daemon list for 40k. All killer no real filler.

Or maybe this stupid BA list I wrote up too - I don't think I have the terminators but still it is a thought.

HQ: Mephiston
Elites: Assault Terminators, LC X 2, TH/SS X 3, LRC, MM
Elites: Assault Terminators, LC X 2, TH/SS X 3, LRR, MM
Elites: Sang Priest X 2, Combi-Melta X 2, Lightning Claw X 2
Troops: Ass Squad X 5, Meltagun, Razorback, TWL
Troops: Ass Squad X 5, Meltagun, Razorback, TWL
Troops: Ass Squad X 5, Meltagun, Razorback, TWL

This is a I move forward and you deal with me or else type of army. Simple, will beat most gimp lists, and will be a pain in the ass for others. Still, stop the fists you stop the combo. Or as I would say - CCCOMMBOO BREAKER!!!

Or I could do this instead - which is what I have for sure model wise.

HQ: Mephiston
Elites: Sang Priest X 2
Elites: Furioso Dreadnought, Blood Talons
Elites: Furioso Dreadnought, Blood Talons
Troops: Ass Squad X 10, Meltagun X 2, Powerfist, LRC, MM
Troops: Ass Squad X 10, Meltagun X 2, Powerfist, LRC, MM
Troops: Ass Squad X 5, Meltagun, Razorback, Asscannon
Troops: Ass Squad X 5, Meltagun, Razorback, Asscannon

Another version with BT jerks to do some damage.

So yeah thoughts?

Oh some painted stuff - Cuz I painted stuff!!!






FIN!!!

Goatpriest is pretty sweet.

If you think you need to get some more reps in with your GT list, go for it.

I would say #1 bile, as it is the least spammy. #2 that wolf list at the top, it is not really spammy, but feels like it since it's space wolves. You should erase those other stupid lists from your mind for being incredibly boring.
