Goatboy's 40k Thoughts - Tuesday Talk

Saw Harry Potter last week - it was good. Caught up on some TV stuff - it was good. I also got started on more project stuff so that is good too. Woohoo. Other random things - tweak more of the Full of Monkey site is in the plans as I get more images up there and get it all settled. I will also look at doing a simple site for my wife to show her jewelry stuff too. More fun times for the Goatboy :).

But I do get to play some games tomorrow. I will probably just bring my Goats as my Orks are kind of borrowed out. I want to get some games with them in soon, but I have to get all the pieces back so I can actually play the army I want to play instead of a random game of nonsense. It will be a basic build design that I just want to play to throw down something different. I can only play the goats for so long haha.

Quick Paint list - for this week as I finish up stuff during Thanksgiving and other fun times. Yup working on Thanksgiving.

9 Grey Hunters - Melta, PW, and MoW - All built - all primed and ready to go - Probably done tonight
1 Rhino - Waiting to build
3 Reaver - 1 Built/Halfway Painted and other 2 are sitting on sprues - cool looking model
5 Man Warrior Squad - Sprue
1 Venom - Built/Primed
1 Soul Grinder - Sprue

That is what I want to do by the weekend. The week after that I want to get some nids done, more DE, more World Eaters and some other nonsense as usual. Will see what I can finish up. The hope is to finish a lot of projects by Xmas. It will help me and Clients as wife is out of work and I want to be sure to not be hurting to pay off her car (only 2 months left woot!). So if you want some art order some now haha.

My Ork army I need to get all the pieces back to play.

HQ: Warboss, Warbike, Cybork, PowerKlaw, Bosspole, Attack Squig
HQ: Big Mek, Kustom Forcefield, Cybork Armor - Cybork due to how the model looks
Elites: Lootas X 10
Elites: Lootas X 10
Troops: Nobz X 6, Warbikes, Cybork, Painboy, PK X 3, Bosspole, Waagh Banner, Big Choppa X 2, Kombi-Skorcha
Troops: Shoota Boyz X 20, Big Shoota X 2, Nob, Bosspole, PowerKlaw
Troops: Shoota Boyz X 20, Big Shoota X 2, Nob, Bosspole, PowerKlaw
Troops: Shoota Boyz X 19, Nob, Bosspole, PowerKlaw
Heavy: Battlewagon, Red, Deff Rolla, Big Shoota, Grot Riggas
Heavy: Battlewagon, Red, Deff Rolla, Big Shoota, Grot Riggas
Heavy: Battlewagon, Red, Deff Rolla, Big Shoota, Grot Riggas

Simple - basic - Orks. I just need to get my Lootas back and a BattleWagon. So I can go all Ork crazy and just crunch my way through life haha.

Some models I have done - just to add to this. I can't wait for the Brick of Doom (Storm Raven) to come out as I think it will make BA viable as obviously they need to deliver Blood Talon nonsense into the meaty center of your opponent.

I have no idea how you can paint so much!

I'd never sit down with 9 marines and think to myself. "Yeah, I'll get these done tonight". I usually measure the amount of time an army takes me to paint in years...

Nonetheless it's inspiring to see you churn through stuff. Keep it up!

You are Hank. Clearly, I'm Dean.

I am really digging the World Eaters on juggernaughts - scary stuff there for sure ! : )

Thanks the Heads are from Chapter House - They care coming out pretty dang sweet. I should finish up the first grey hunter + wg tonight. I have to do the one rhino/Razorback conversion build and then one troop is complete.

2 Wolf Scouts + Guard
2 Long Fangs
1 GH with Guard and Rhino to go hehe.

Oh do you need your logo in a larger size?

Black Blow Fly said...

Thomas I'd love to have my logo larger sized with bright yellow bordering the text "Terminus Est" .

Thanks bro !

The term Terminus Est was first used in the Torturer SciFi trilogy by Gene Wolfe. It's a two handed sword the main character carries to fulfill his craft. He is also credited with terms like Carnifex and Incubi - looks like GW heavily borrowed from him.
