Man we need some FAQs eh?

This wait is kind of poops - but hopefully we will see something by the end of the week.  Right now too much is up in the air and I think even with summon heavy Daemons will end up tanking it to Troop spammed marines.  Reese's list is a great example of this and I feel with some tweaks we might  see something strong out of there.

Oh yeah I get to find out the baby's sex tomorrow!  Most likely a girl (had dreams before, figured it would be, wife thinks so).  If a girl it will be June Reidy with maybe Olive or Alle or something for the middle name.  Will see - very excited.

Heck add in two knights (I don't remember if you can) and you have a crazy marine force.  Something like 5 Rhino squads - some shit heads, libbie or two or go the crazy Chapter Master route. Heck I figured a Clan Raccoon one with lots of troops will also work as those rhinos will be a bitch to remove if you don't kill them right away.  I always like that Chapter Master as he gets work done.

Who knows what events will do.  I bet they go 2 sources only for most events.  I know it eff's Inquisition but man - we might just need to limit it so we are not insane.  Will see - I caused a good amount of stink with my article.  Hooray!

I bet the only daemons with access to that spell set is gonna be the Daemon Princes and Heralds.  As they are known to bring their friends in.  Will see though.  Right now I am excited people are taking a stand to what events are going to be like.  The two big heads are hopefully going to work together and get a massive batch of events following their FAQ/rules/Ideas/Etc.  Hopefully they work it out and keep their pants on.  Hell...

Alright - let's see a paint list first of all.

Plastic Dudesmen - Got one partway drawn but got another idea from a buddy - will see.  The last one did ok amazingly enough.  I wonder if people have figured out their comments don't matter?
Knight # 3 - Might be Nurgle - might be Tzeentch - will see
Custom Bike Chapter Master Build - no paint just build for a client - ordered the shield bits need to find a cool hammer
Custom Hive Tyrant of Chaos for NControl - started it got the head built and started tweaking the legs - need to figure out the guns - thinking Forge Fiend Gattling guns?
Need to figure out more possessed dammit - my stupid ideas!
Oh yeah - Orks!!! - got some Kromlech Review Orks to do - woohoo

Pulled out 10+ old skool Pink Horrors to do - will prime em up when it stop raining and do this week
Some old school flesh hounds too because Don hates me.

2 Predators - Primed
2 Rhinos - not primed - damn the rain

AG/IG/etc - need to get to figure out what kind of scheme he wants and go from there

Necro orks - initial box is almost done - got a monolith and Arc Node thingie to do - then I can ship off the initial batch and move on from there.

Chris C
Dark Elf stuff - got some executioners to do.

I think that covers it for now - probably do other stuff too.  Still want to do some hand drawn Primarch art at some point.  Using markers, hate, etc.  Will see.  The Wife is playing Titanfall after we borrowed an Xbox One.  It might convince her to get one at some point.  When Halo 5 comes out she will want to play that.  Woohoo.

The one thing is - with the new rules you can do stupid stuff like this.

Crimson Slaughter + FOC Daemons
HQ: Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Prophet of Voices, MoT, Spell Familiar, Bike
Troops: Possessed X 10, MoT
Troops: Cultists X 10
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils

Troops: Pink Horrors X 10
Troops: Pink Horrors X 10

1850 - so yeah - tons of steel coming at you.  Could be good?  Heheh.

Painted stuff. - Finally finished some things too woohoo!

Would you like some Punch?

The attack of Draigo - the whips remove attacks?

Old man is like - get off my lava lawn!

Look at all dat ass!


Customer Yarrick - woohoo - Little NMN gold mixed with real metal.

I truly believe that horrors do not have access to the Daemonolgy powers. It says they must draw their powers from the change discipline. Just like the only GKs that can use the santic powers are the Libby's and inquisitors. Are peopl really going to have thinks and strike squads drawing from that deck?

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

That's the issue right now too.

Pink Horrors are Mastery Level 1 Casters - but as Daemons of Tzeentch they automatically get the Primarius power from the Lore of Change. So they fulfill what they are supposed to be - with at least from one Lore of Change - so it could make sense they get it.

Still - that army will lose to MSU - massed troops. It doesn't kill much - just has lots of bodies. Kind of like old school Nids when they just made bodies all day long.

The bigger pain in the butt is basically they can over power the psychic phase and even with spells being hard to stop - they can throw enough dice to stop spells over other armies.

Blargh - we need FAQs damnit.

Congrats on the upcoming child! June sounds like a great name, I like Olive as well.

I have a bad feeling about this, as in I don't think they are going to FAQ anything.

Love those painted orks on the crazy bike things! I don't even know what they are, but they are friggin awesome!

Something is really wrong with your game development and playtesting if FAQs are needed immediately after releasing a "new" edition.

On a side note, people are calling this 6.1 edition, when really it's 3.4. Just more tweaks on 3rd edition.
