Goatboy - New Week Start


Which means more painted stuff. I start my week on Saturday as Friday is my usual post on my paint site etc. So again a list of stuff that will most likely get done this week. With some things that are already done.

Chris C - DE - White/Red
Archon - Done
4 TrueBorn - Done
3 Reavers - Done
Raider - Primed and looking at me funny

Big Red - Khador
Doggie - Done

Jens - CSM
5 Terminators/heavy Magnet/Built - Done today woot.
5 Juggers - On sprue - would like to have them built this week at least

Jason S - Snow Nids
20 Hormagaunts - Just want to get them built this week.

Luis P - Necromunda
5 Random guys - Built and Primed

Fritz - Mordhiem
12 Crazy Dudes - Built and Primed

Myself - Space Goats
2 Wolf Lords on Juggers Plastic like - On a sprue staring at me

I played a game versus Big Red. He hadn't played Space Wolves yet and I wanted to take a mean build to throw at him to see how he would survive. He did a few mistakes and I won in the end. As usual I used my Wolf Lords on Juggers to keep him tied up as my Grey Hunters just got into business and caused some shenanigans. It is how a lot of my lists play. A unit keeps you busy for 3 turns as all the other pieces get into position to deal with the survivors. It works out pretty well as you expect your big fat unit to die - makes you play a little more aggressive which can put your opponent off. It also makes them forget the objectives a lot of the time.

I call this list - Mean and Clean Space Goats

HQ: Wolf Lord, Saga of the Bear, Thunder Wolf, Runic Armor, Storm Shield, Powerfist, Fenris Wolves X 2
HQ: Wolf Guard Battle Leader, Saga of the Warrior Born, Thunder Wolf, Runic Armor, Storm Shield, Wolf Claw, Fenris Wolves X 2
HQ: Rune Priest, Chooser of the Slain
Elites: Wolf Guard X 3
WG # 1 - Power Armor, Power Fist, Combi-Melta
WG # 2 - Power Armor, Power Fist, Combi-Melta
WG # 3 - Power Armor, Power Fist, Combi-Melta
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Wolf Tail Necklace, Cyberwolves X 4
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Wolf Tail Necklace, Cyberwolves X 4
Troops: Grey Hunters X 7, Meltagun, MoW, Rhino
Troops: Grey Hunters X 7, Meltagun, MoW, Rhino
Troops: Grey Hunters X 7, Meltagun, MoW, Rhino
Heavy: Long Fangs X 6, ML X 5
Heavy: Long Fangs X 6, ML X 5

So I get 4 Psuedo Wolf Lords to run around and lots of guys to get up and get business done when it is all said and done. It is pretty much a very aggressive list design to put some pain out as need be. I don't know how well it will do versus DE- most likely you will have to play a corner Long Fangs and reserve game. Will see. But this means I get to make 4 more new Goats on Juggers as I want to have all plastic damnit. I might rip off the guys on the metal juggers now and just build plastic juggers for them to ride on. The riders are plastic and I can go back and do some color tweaking to make them look nicer. I will probably do that with all the other goats too and create a nicer looking force.

Right now I am waiting till next month to put in my final order for DE. This should get me enough to get my games on with the foot army I want to play with. So look for more talk about that in the coming month or so. Reaver Titan is almost together and ready to paint so look for that jerk as well as a Stompa coming soon.

Minis!!!
