Goatboy's Really late post



Man - there is nothing worse then having to go to a boot camp for work.  It was for a computer certification - MEF or CECP.  I passed so that is good.  It just means I have to now look at another Cert in the coming months.  Woohoo!  Still  - it made my week very very rushed, busy, and tiring.  Still I got stuff done because - this stuff is calming for me.  Woohoo!

My DA army is complete and I just need to build a display board.  I already know the thing I need to get and can get it painted up in less then a day.  Might need to get a hot glue gun but will see.  The boy is still doing good and I am sure you will read a post being sad he got into my nerd room at some point haha.

Paint list

Me
Nothing for me to paint until I start a new army - Crons or Orks
Art wise - I don't think I have anything on the horizon right now

James L
Finished the last Riptide this week - woot!

Lance K
Bunch of Empire stuff I just finished today

Greg S
Marines and more marines - cents, friends, etc.  Building and paint woohoo - I think Red and Cream is what the colors will be.

Chris C
Might have a harlie commission not do - lots of dudes black and white - shouldn't be too hard.

Christian
9 Plague drones if he wants me to do it.

Luis
Try to get 2 Storm Ravens out at some point

Brandon
Eldar Night flyer thing I built today while watching Daredevil - it is good - need to get it attache to a base well.  Damn you FW!

Will
Forge world tank - need to soak then I can get to building it.

I am sure I am missing something too - but my brain is all about getting some food in a sec.

Let's see - Daemonkin list ideas.  A buddy loves the idea of tons of Grinders - and I think it might have merit.

6 Grinders with Baleful torrent comes out to 930 pts.   This leaves you room for - maybe some kind of dog rush thingie?  Or just Blood thirsters?

Bloodcult thingie Decurion
HQ: Normal Bloodthirster - 250
Elite: Possessed X 5 - 150
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Leader dude - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Leader dude - 85
Troops: Cultists X 8

Formation: The D Bloodthirster - 275pts

Heavy Warmachine formation
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155
Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155

It is a lot of guys and you have 3 guys to sac for a daemon prince if you want.  You will be trying to get FNP most of the time to keep your Thirsters alive.  This just looks dumb as hell too haha.  So many grinders doing grinder things haha.

Other thoughts would be to do a normal list - something like this.

Daemonkin + CSM Ally

HQ: Chaos Lord, Jugger, Sigil, PF, LC - 185
HQ: Chaos Lord, Jugger, Sigil, PF, LC - 185
Troops: Blood letters X 8, Leader - 85
Troops: Blood letters X 8, Leader - 85
FA: Flesh Hounds X 10 - 160
FA: Flesh Hounds X 10 - 160
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
Heavy: Maulerfiend - 130
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils - 140
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils - 140

CSM
HQ: Chaos Lord, Jugger, Sigil, Blinding Axe of Fury, Meltabombs, Gift of Mutation - 190
Troops: Cultists X 10 - 50
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170

1850 on the nose - and it has 3 Juggerlords so I feel satisfied.  Plus I get to use the Axe of Blinding Fury.

Other dumb ideas - wouldn't 3 Grinders plus 3 Heldrakes be pretty rough to deal with?  2 Thirsters added in and you got a rough - balls to the walls Khorne list?

HQ: Super thirster - 300
HQ: Super thirster - 300
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85
Troops: Bloodletters X 8, Blood leader - 85
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
FA: Heldrake, Bale Flamer - 170
Heavy: Soul Grinder - 155
Heavy: Soul Grinder - 155
Heavy: Soul Grinder - 155

You got 20 pts left too maybe use?  But this looks rough as heck too right?  You can try to fight it into the Bloodhost but it gets harder with the Possessed Tax you need in there.  Still it is interesting to think that a new book is really looking good at just being used a single choice etc.  No other allies or other nonsense.

Speaking of dumb stuff - look at this Dark Eldar idea I didn't come up with but chatted about etc.

Dark Eldar CAD + Covente Coterie Detachment (Haemonculus)

HQ: Haemonculus, Crucible of Malediction, Webway Portal - 125
HQ: Haemonculus, Crucible of Malediction, Webway Portal - 125
Elites: Mandrakes - 36
Elites: Mandrakes - 36
Elites: Mandrakes - 36
Troops: Dark Eldar Warriors X 20, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 190
Troops: Dark Eldar Warriors X 20, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 190
Troops: Dark Eldar Warriors X 20, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 190
Troops: Dark Eldar Warriors X 20, Splinter Cannons X 2 - 190
FA: Scourges X 5, Haywire Blaster X 4 - 120
FA: Scourges X 5, Haywire Blaster X 4 - 120
FA: Scourges X 5, Haywire Blaster X 4 - 120

Covente Coterie
HQ: Haemonculus, Crucible of Malediction, Webway Portal - 125
HQ: Haemonculus, Crucible of Malediction, Webway Portal - 125
Elites: Wracks X 5 - 50
Elites: Wracks X 5 - 50

I have weird points left - but it seems it could be a weird spoiler army.  It would wreck some psychic heavy armies.  Each Crucible causes a str 6 no saves of any kind wound to any unit with a psyker within 3d6 inches of the guy.  So you come down, drop the caskets and maybe kill some Heralds.  It seems it could work.  Then you have a ton of poison shots.  It looks like it is designed to screw up those Centurion stars and other psychic heavy stars.  Fun times.

Some models to look at and I am out!







Plus some more Frontline art.

I'm not sure who can turn into a BT in the first list, other than the Cultist leader. Every time I try to build a Daemonkin list I run into that problem since all the cheap stuff I want to field in required slots already have Daemon of Khorne.

I don't think I will be turning anyone into a Thirster. Until they really give a definite answer on what mode you can Deep strike in - it becomes a moot point. Most of the time it is Summon something basic and FNP.
