Post Xmas Post thing yay!



Woot - doing this early - started writing on Xmas day - will hopefully finish on the 26th if it isn't too busy at work.  Woohoo!

I actually got some painting done these last few days.  Enough to make me feel good about myself.  I have a few more to do in a small commission and then a bunch for larger work.  Lots of things all over the place I need to finish.  It just never ends for me.  Plus art stuff too haha.  It never ends for the Goatboy.

Let's do a paint list real quick - just to write it all out.

Me
Frontline Art - 3 more Hordes Pics to do then some Dropzone commander - 2 Done - need to draw the 3rd - have the idea.
BOLS article - last of the year woohoo! - Done!
I need to buy some Nurglings to finish up... bah! - Built! I think I have another box somewhere too - need to see if I can find it.
Fix up screamers that fell off bases
Do a Test Nid for a future commission - Done!

Don S
Crys stuff - things to finish up - some Warjacks and some solos

Michael K
Lots of Sister and IG vehicles - Built 2 today - Wyvern and Manticore...
The Saint - Done - need to seal her.

Luis P
Flesh Tearers stuff - some models and small things to finish out an army - Some done today!

Caleb
NecroOrk Stompa - want to get this done dammit - Will hopefully get time when I get back into town over the weekend.  It is a half day sort of jobbie job.

I am sure other stuff as people get back with me after Xmas.  Woohoo it is how I do it!

Boy is getting better - he smiles a lot more now and sleeps ok.  He is just getting bigger too.  Hopefully I can get a lot of good time working on stuff next year.  And I need to study for certifications for work too.  Man it never ends for the Goat.  I will slow down eventually.

I am going to test the 4 Grinder list this next week - and then another version that drops one set of Nurglings and Grinder to get 8 screamers.  It might work better - but 4 Grinders sound awesome.  I still really like the 3 Chapter Master idea I posted on BOLS the other day.  Here is a smaller version that might be fun.

Imperial Fists Main + Clan Raakan Ally

HQ: Lysander
HQ: Chapter Master, Terminator Armor, The Shield Eternal, Chainfist
Elites: Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-melta, Meltagun, Combi-Grav
Elites: Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-melta, Meltagun, Combi-Grav
Elites: Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-melta, Meltagun, Combi-Grav
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb
Heavy: Relic Sicarian Battle Tank, Hvy Bolters Sponsons

HQ: Chapter Master, Gorgon's Chain, Chainfist, Thunder Hammer, Terminator Armor
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb
Troops: Scouts X 10, Combi-Grav, Meltabomb

It seems like it could win games on just being annoying alone.  Plus the 3 man super dudes would be cool as they hit the ground, drop lasers from the sky, and then get involved in dumb situations.  It is like a stupid odd ball comedy.  Woohoo!

First LVO army testing will be the following

DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
Nurglings X 4
Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent X 4

Super basic - just to see if things work out.  From there I move stuff around woohoo!  Will hopefully do a quick right up on how it actually worked.  4 Grinders just sound fun.

I can drop a grinder and one Nurgling squad for 8 screamers.  Might be worth it.

Models to check out.


More Cryx!  I do like painting them for Warmachine.

This might be my new favorite Daemon prince.



That Helbrute kit has lots of cool stuff in it.  

Nid Test for a client - likes it so most likely an army of this in a few months.


Got one more to do - plus a Manticore - damaged for the win!


This finishes off all the regular sisters - now it is just vehicles.
The Saint herself.
Woot some DC - Storm Raven for them is coming soonish.
Finally some Art too - got one more Hordes to do for Frontline.

Love the battle sisters... If someone had said pink armour I'd have said "no way! " but they look great. Those hellbrute arms work really well on the daemon prince too.

I'm liking the four grinder list brother! How do you think it'll work out? Any thoughts on tactics for it?

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

Thanks - yeah who would have thought pink would work out as well as it did haha.

I will tell you how the Grinder list works hopefully later on this week.
