Oh my goodness!

It's Monday and CSM lists are a brewing.  I will get pictures coming up soon - I just didn't get time to get them off my camera to get up here.  So no new model pics till Wednesday.  I did get a lot done and have started to work on my list for Feast.  It is not spam heavy like the list I posted on BOLS.  A lot of the time I do that to just guage how annoying commentors can be.  And they were. 

Hell commentors everywhere have been lame.  They complain that the codex isn't as point and click as GK was.  They are upset that the book is more like corrupted marines instead of full on batshit Demon nonsense.  In fact they are just being annoying and complaining.  I am happy with the book.  In fact - I am extremely excited about the nonsense I see within the hallowed pages of 40k nonsense.  The list I plan on bringing to feast is designed to hold some objectives, be annoying, and just help me continue to play the game in as exciting a way as I feel is possible. 

So with that - let's look at some of my list thoughts. First is a straight CSM list and the one I am thinking of for Feast is a Hybrid with Demons.

HQ: Chaos Lord, Mark of Slaanesh, Bike, Sigil of Corruption, The Black Mace, Veteran of the Long War, Boon of Mutation - 200pts
HQ: Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar - 125pts
Troops: Noise Marines X 20, Sonic Blasters X 18, Blastmaster X 2 - 464pts
Troops: Noise Marines X 10, Sonic Blasters X 10 - 210pts
Troops: Noise Marines X 10, Sonic Blasters X 10 - 210pts
Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50pts
Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50pts
FA: Helldrake, Balethrower - 170pts
FA: Helldrake, Balethrower - 170pts
FA: Chaos Spawn X 3 - 90pts
Heavy: Havocs X 8, Autocannon X 4 - 154pts
Formation: Aegis Defense Line, Quadgun - 100pts

The Cultists control the Quadgun and then I shoot things as needed.  The lord as a bit too expensive but it he seems fun as he runs around with some Chaos Spawn.  I might need more but if you leave it small enough it isn't nearly as mean to get rid of.  Plus a bunch of spawn running around sound neat.  I think there is some power there as well.

Current Feast list - Combo with CSM and Demons.

HQ: Chaos Lord, Murder Sword, Sigil of Corruption, Mark of Slaanesh, Veteran of the Long War, Bike - 165pts
HQ: Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar - 125pts
Troops: Noise Marines X 20, Sonic Blasters X 20, Icon of Excess - 440pts
Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50ps
Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50pts

Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50pts

FA: Helldrake, Balethrower - 170pts
FA: Helldrake, Balethrower - 170pts
FA: Chaos Spawn x 3, Mark of Nurgle - 108pts
Formation: Aegis Defense Line, Quadgun - 100pts

Demon Allies
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch - 50pts
Elites: Flamers of Tzeentch X 9 - 207
Troops: Horrors of Tzeentch X 5 - 85pts

FA: Screamesr of Tzeentch X 9 - 225pts

Comes out to 1995 - I get 5 scoring units - some nice mix of weenie stuff and anti horde.  I can kill Land raiders with the Screamers - cover the field and have some unit holders in the Chaos Spawn.  Hit a unit, cause a lot of wounds and hope for the best.  If I could drop the Veteran of the Long War I could get a Chaos Mutation - but you can't really test much with that.  The Cultists man the Quad gun as needed.

List ideas woohoo - and a lot more random then what I posted on BOLS.  Again sometimes it is fun to stir the pot a bit.

Paint list - woohoo so far this week.

No plastic dudesmen so far this week - I got the one for Saturday and I think I might have the next one in my head.  Larry gave the initial bit of idea and I just got how to fix it.
10 Noise Marines - Done!
10 More Noise Marines - waiting on Gun parts to come in
Either Flamers or Screamers - in pieces getting shipped
1 Dragon - in pieces getting shipped

1 Mauler/Forge/Etc fiend - there are 3 total and I waiting for parts to come in - will get one done for sure

Luis P
3 more DV bikers - Primed
9 more Tactical marines - Primed
3 more DV bikers - Primed - need to convert some

There will probably be more as well - I will be painting a lot this week and the weekend.  I want to have the above army done by the end of next week.  I will be sending off that list most likely by the 14th - there are small mental changes but right now I am really liking how all the pieces are fitting.  I also want to get a Sadness Donut shirt up on MySoti by this weekend for those interested.

I will post some pics later on and as usual hopefully some art as well.  I want to draw up my character cards for my CSM characters as well.  I need places to mark whatever nonsense they might get when killing a jerk face sarge.

Comments are always funny on BoLS articles. I don't know why people hate spam so much. Have you thought about including one or two Heralds of Nurgle in your Slaanesh list? They are slow and purposeful which is conferred onto a squad that they join. This means that Noise Marines get to move and fire Salvo weapons to the full effect. They lose their ability to fire overwatch, run, and sweeping advance though. You could toss in a Slaanesh lord on a mount to outflank too. It works for now too because the Daemons can't join Daemons of other gods and CSM ICs can't join marines with other marks, but cross codex it's fine. That might be FAQed later though.

I love the lists! In particular the second list seems like a lot of fun. I like the noise Marines, even though my friends don't. The flamers and the screamers plus the Hell Drakes and the noise marines makes for a potent list that beats the Horde Meta pretty well.

What do you plan to run on the Sorc?

Biomancy most likely. And hell it's a lot more interesting list then the Bols one heh

I find all your blog posts very entertaining. I see nothing wrong with any of your lists. It would be a challenge to beat you but I'd enjoy the experience. The meta here in Perth wa is boring as batshit.

I read the CSM codex and I was disappointed by how there are no new special's really a shame. Where is Cypher? Where are upgrade characters? Sad IMO...but other than that the codex is a great read.
