Woohoo! Thursday Post as I am at Work!


Rarraagghh!!! It is Thursday and I am at work super early. I am changing up my shift in a few weeks and I wanted to test it out to see if I could wake up and check out the traffic etc. So far so good so hopefully by October I will be in my new shift and my wife gets to see me more often haha. So yeah - enough of that onto some Warhamms.

Lord I am excited about Ogres. I will buy the book to at least see if I want to dip my hoof into the gaming Fantasy waters. I have a WOC army but I really didn't want to play the new edition. The idea of big monsters running around just sounds awesome to me so I might just jump in and paint up a crap ton of Moobies.

Speaking of painting - here is the weekly list. I should have lots of time on Friday and this weekend to get stuff done. Hopefully.

Me
Rogue Psyker Squad 1 - Built and Primed
Rogue Psyker Squad 2 - In Pieces

Mike N
Zap Gun - Built
10 Boyz w/Nob - Pieces
Trukk - Pieces

Randy M
6 Man Infinity Squad - Done!
1 Biker Girl - In Pieces

Jens
3 Bikerz - Need to put on a base and prime
Some CSM - Need to base and prime

That is it for now - most likely more will get added on as I work late on Friday. Wife will be out of town with a friend that just lost her mother. I will be up there later on Saturday for the memorial so most likely I will be looking to work on things that keep my brain occupied.

Lately I have been working on Grey Knights lists over and over. Ard Boyz is coming and it looks like I will be trying to play in Dallas. Will see I need to call them today to set it up etc, if not there then San Antonio. The missions look pretty meh so most likely I will continue with a massed Troop/GKM list that helps set up enough options for everything I need. I do think I will end up with less extra bits then the last one - more just simple and efficient beatings.

Current Thought design.

HQ: Crowe
HQ: GKM, Psycannon, Psychotroke Grenades
Elites: Vendread, TWL Autocannon X 2, Psybolt
Troops: GKT X 10, Psycannon X 2, Bro Banner, Halberd X 7, Daemon Hammer X 2
Troops: Purifiers X 10, Psycannon X 4, Halberds X 4, Daemon Hammer, Rhino
Troops: Purifiers X 10, Psycannon X 4, Halberds X 4, Daemon Hammer, Rhino
Troops: Purifiers X 5, Psycannon X 1, Daemon Hammer, Razorback, Psybolt
Troops: Purifiers X 5, Psycannon X 1, Daemon Hammer, Razorback, Psybolt
Heavy: Dreadnought, TWL Autocannon X 2, Psybolt
Heavy: Dreadnought, TWL Autocannon X 2, Psybolt
Heavy: Dreadnought, TWL Autocannon X 2, Psybolt

2500 points on the nose.

So yeah I can get lots of troops - some shooting and other nonsense. Not sure if it is worth wile so will see. I could go to 5 Paladins with two psycannons if I wanted - saves me 100 pts or so but not sure if it is worth it. Might do some DreadKnights to get some teleport action - which makes me think some Inceptors might be alright. Arghs!

I plan on getting some games in today. That is my hope. I will be playing Knights as usual - need to keep on playing if I hope to make the ETC team this year. I want to test some nonsense as usual. Not sure if the Coteaz builds are worth it. Just not fully sure as things get more anti psyker and the Rogue Pyskers become less effective. Here is one of the lists I thought about messing with.

HQ: Coteaz
HQ: Libbie, Shrouding, Might of Titan, Warp Rift, Sanctuary
Elites: Ven Dread, TWL Autocannon X 2, Psybolt
Elites: Ven Dread, TWL Autocannon X 2, Psybolt
Troops: Henchmen - DC X 6, Crusader X 4
Troops: Henchmen - DC X 6, Crusader X 4
Troops: Henchmen - Warrior Acolyte X 3, Meltagun X 3, Razorback, Ass Cannon, Psybolt
Troops: Henchmen - Warrior Acolyte X 3, Plasma X 3, Razorback, Ass Cannon, Psybolt
Troops: Henchmen - Rogue Psyker X 8, Warrior Acolyte X 2, Rhino
Troops: Henchmen - Rogue Psyker X 8, Warrior Acolyte X 2, Rhino
Heavy: LR Redeemer, MM, Psybolt
Heavy: LR Crusader, MM, Psybolt

2000 on the nose too. If I set up for Ard Boyz I might Run a Paladin squad and another dreadnought. So no idea - but this might work well too.

All it means I need to make more jerks. MORE AND MORE!!!

Um - paint stuff later on this week. And I need some food too. FOod!

For Ard boyz I'm gonan go way off the normal track: Looking at mission 2 and 3, I was thinking just troops over firepower.

Nurgle Daemon Prince (Wings, Nurgle's Rot)
Nurgle Daemon Prince (Wings, Nurgle's Rot)

x5 Plague Marines (Melta/Plasma, Personal Icon)+ Rhino(Combi Flamer)
x5 Plague Marines (Melta/Plasma, Personal Icon)+ Rhino(Combi Flamer)
x5 Plague Marines (Melta/Plasma, Personal Icon)+ Rhino(Combi Flamer)
x5 Plague Marines (Melta/Plasma, Personal Icon)+ Rhino(Combi Flamer)
x5 Plague Marines (Melta/Plasma, Personal Icon)+ Rhino(Combi Flamer)
x5 Plague Marines (Melta/Plasma, Personal Icon)+ Rhino(Combi Flamer)

x3 Obliterators
x3 Obliterators
x3 Obliterators

And since you can take any amount of Lesser Daemons, which count as troops and take up no FOC slots:

x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons
x5 Lesser Summoned Daemons

= x14 troop choices
