Goatboy - Wednesday Late Post


Been taking the last few days off from painting. I just wanted to get my brain cleared up a bit and then I can get at it later on this week. I shouldn't have too much to do - just finishing up some troops before I get to the last of the Dark Eldar vehicles. Fun fun fun.

I will be going to the Bay Area Open. I am getting in early and will probably team up with Caldera who is coming along with me for the team event. That is the plan heh. I have to think up some 1750 lists and will post some down below in a bit. First things first - list of what I want to do this week.

Me.
Plastic Dudesmen - Done!
Art for BOLS videos - Kinda done.
Tattoo design for myself - drawn! Need to tweak it a bit.
Maybe another Plastic Dudesmen - Drawn - need to know if it is worth finishing etc
Maybe some stuff for the Bay Area Open Armies

Jens
11 Dark Eldar Warriors - Final batch of dudes! Based not primed cuz of the rain
Ravager # 2 - need to base, magnetized, and fix.

Mark T
Malifaux dude - I think 2 - will see.

Luis P
Batch of 7 Mordhiem - Dwarves and a Werewolf thingie - Based not primed cuz of the Rain

Michael S
Start the gluing of third flyer

So stuff to do. I might do other things - but it is the light lull in working that I need to clear my head a bit. Plus it is kind of rainy here haha. I like a lull before going to an event too.

I should have some other commissions coming in too so will see more stuff come up in the coming months. Fun fun and more fun.

Some painted models and then some lists.









Woohoo - so that is it model wise for now.

Now some lists. The event is 1750 so I have to change up my thoughts on the game a bit. Mix this with a different way to win each game and you will need a lot of troops as well as the potential to move around the field. Sitting and shooting won't help that much. So with that in mind I am thinking of some different lists that will have a) a lot of troops and b) some solid survivability. Blargh! 1750 is a mean and lean number for an army list and a lot of options get thrown out the door. There is no fat in these types of lists - just pure efficient beatings.

1750 on the nose. Lots of guys - a reserve unit (could turn into just 5 guys on foot if I want), and some long ranged firepower with a Psychic power set up to cause anyone fits.

Grey Knights thought - Almost a Pure Henchmen build - give me a chance to play with some Land Raiders - EVIL GREY KNIGHTS!!! RARGH!

Lord that looks boring as crap. Move 18, tighten butthole, see what lives, then move on from there. I could do something like this for Wolves too. Just lots and lots of dudes. Blargh!

Wolf list gives me more options - Grey knights has Land Raiders. What to do?

All 3 of those are nasty! I like the Wolf list the most though, but they are solid.

Too bad no matter what you bring, the West Coasters will spank your bottom! Haha, just kidding, I am sure you will kick booty.

I am feeling the Wolves too - but Grey Knights will be a pain in the behind haha.

Always taken back at your ability to blend and bend the colour spectrum to your will. The vibrant colour choices and saturation create a look and feel that can only be described by a Goat. Hope you don't mind me giving your post a shout out on my weekly themed top-x. Cheers and thanks for sharing.
