Woohoo - More stuff done!

I tweaked my army for Alamo so I didn't need to paint more stuff.  Hooray!  I even built the Chaos Lord for the Wargames Con army tonight too!  Hooray!  Blargh!!!

Alright - paint list first cuz with the wife out of town for a few days I have time to throw into painting.  I had to go to work for 10 hrs today to cover someone's shift so I painted too - thus the glut of stuff at the bottom.

Paint list
Wargames Con - Chaos Lord - Built
Wargames Con - Sorcerer Lord - Not built!!
Plastic Dudesmen - Need a script

Belial - Done!
Nephilim - Done!
2 DK knights - Primed
4 DW - Primed
Maybe some vets? - Need to build

12 Firewarriors - Done!
2 Drones - Done!
Hammerhead - In a box!

3 Cryx thingies - Primed!

I am sure there will be more - this is just for now.

I am taking a tweaked list from Adepticon for the Alamo - this is what I sent it so no changing!

HQ: Keeper of Secrets, Lvl 3 Psyker, Greater Gifts X 2
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Lvl 3 Psyker, Exalted Gift, Locus of Conjuration
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Lvl 3 Psyker, Exalted Gift
Troops: Plague Bearers X 10
Troops: Plague Bearers X 10
Troops: Pink Horrors X 20, Iridescent Horror
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3 Caster, Greater Gifts X 2
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3 Caster, Greater Gifts X 2
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoS, Armor, Lvl 3 Caster, Greater Gifts X 2

It is simple and basic.  I probably need a FA option but this will work for now.  I couldn't get Fiends to fit in right so will just see how this goes.  This will be simple, small and easy to play with.  I think it might work out to run a Lord of Change in the HQ secondary slot - but I didn't want to make one.  I am still working on the design in my head to see if I can get it to fit.  Too much!

Tau seem alright so far.  Very shooty but if you play smart and gut certain bits of the army you can win.  They seem high on the VP issues with lots of units to give up points.  I don't plan on building one but I do enjoy painting them.  Lucky for me a client has me doing some right now haha.

Ok some models to look at.


New Herald of Tzeentch - Red Armor to imply a change from Thousand Sons.

The question from the last comment - you can see his feet as he is running to gut you.

I make armored friends scoring!

I like it. I like it a lot. Looks a lot like my list, but I drop the wingless prince for dogs. Grimoire dogs are simply too good to pass on as they can win games by themselves. You already have the buffers for them to take advantage of..

Also, I'm leaning towards 2x 10 Daemonettes instead of plaguebearers. When you can gtg in area terrain shrouding isn't that good. I like the ability to simply deepstrike somewhere, hide, then run out and grab an obj when you need to. Not being able to run sucks.. You cant really deepstrike them and you have the portal already for backfield.

Having frequented this blog for a while I feel like I should know the answer to this, but it escapes me: what do you do for a living? Having a job where you can paint while working sounds fantastic.

I do tech support and depending on when I am working (weekends) I can sometimes paint. I used to paint all the time but now I usually put in 2-3 hours at home every night.

Watching TV, chatting with the wife, and telling my dog to stop giving me crap to play fetch again.

I am going to mess with the dogs at some point too. I have a ton and I just have to paint them up etc. I have some done that I need to tweak but it is a thought. They have just been ass for me the last few times haha.

I will be writing up a dog list soon - I do like comboing it with flying MoS DP's for whip action.

I've recently just started 40k and have chosen the daemon army as my first (My friends all play the other armies). After playing a few games, I do like the Flying MCs (a lot).

I like them so much, I wonder why you don't use a Lord of Change instead of the heralds. This would allow you to make 1 of your DPs MoT instead of MoS (Although, I do LOVE the MoS whips). MoT DPs are slightly more survivable and have slightly better psy checks. Also, you have a chance at some great Change powers (such as the beam of change) that I feel give the army a tad more AoE.

What do you think?

Mos ones are much better. Fleet plus the lash means you can kill just about anything. Trust me I've tested it out a lot haha.
