Woohoo - Post and stuffs!



Let's start with the Paint list

Maybe a quick logo thingie - will see

James L

Riptide #3 - not built yet

Luis
More FT to build and do

Greg S
Some Grey Knights and other stuffs

Brandon V
Eldar Flyer thingie - need to soak and build - hopefully knock it out mostly this weekend

Will
FW tank thingie - with lascannons can't remember the name

A few things to do haha.  And next week I have a class to take for work to get a new cert.  Need to pass it so I will probably be screwed on getting stuff done as I try to study for an hour or two every night.  Will see how it goes.

I wanted to get a game in but the boy has a cold so that is looking less likely tomorrow.  Poop cuz the new army list is almost done.  5 more damned models to finish it too.  For those wondering here is the initial 2 Force Org build.

Basically I get 2 big death squads that run around and punch things.  Of courser the idea of making it an even bigger huge death squad is tempting too.

This gets pretty stupid as it is one huge unit of insanity that runs around and tries to do stuff.  I am thinking no Psykers and just go straight aggression with two units might be better.  Meh the big list just sounds goofy as hell which makes me giggle inside.

The Khorne Daemonkin book comes out at the roughest time as it just sounds fun to play.  I love that you can make an Iron Warriors style list with a ton of Daemonic engines everywhere.  Here is one that is probably better then the one I posted on BOLS.  You all know I just like to make people mad sometimes on BOLS.  Plus every time I read a comment that is like - who let him post I just want to say - I've been doing this for 7 years bro... 1-3 times a week.  Suck a bunch of butt.

Blood Host Detachment
Slaughter Cult
HQ: Chaos Lord, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Axe of Khorne, Sigil of Corruption - 200pts
Troops: Blood Letters X 8 - 80pts
Troops: Blood Letters X 8 - 80pts
Elites: Possessed X 5 - 150pts
FA: Chaos Spawn X 1

War Engines
Soul Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155pts
Soul Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155pts
Soul Grinder, Baleful Torrent - 155pts

Daemonkin CAD
HQ: Chaos Lord, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Axe of Khorne, Sigil of Corruption - 200pts
HQ: Chaos Lord, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Axe of Khorne, Sigil of Corruption - 200pts
Troops: Cultists X 8 - 58pts
Troops: Cultists X 8 - 58pts
FA: Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 20 - 320pts

This might work - you got the big unit of Dogs moving up with 3 crazy Characters.  You want to get the Bloodtithe going and you have some easy to kill things.  Who knows if this would be any good - it just seems interesting.  It is a neat book as Mono book seems to work best for the army.  I still like the idea of just tons of Daemon engines on the table.  I also wonder if the big Khorne Dozer might actually work.

Hopefully I will have this DA list finished beyond making 1 or 2 new Wolf Guard Battle Leaders.  If I feel like making the huge smash list of nonsense.


Finishes off that small Scout squad - 1 more to go.

Wah... another command squad... shenanigans

Iron Priest #3

Iron Priest #4

I have been driving myself silly trying to figure out a tournament list for Khorne Daemonkin. After going round and round with it in my head for the past couple of days, the list I'm coming to terms with looks suspiciously a lot like yours, except my three dino-bots will be maulerfiends. Eh, still doesn't look very competitive though. Damnit, I might just go back to getting my Thunderwolf army built instead.

Keep the posts coming! I know there are a lot of haters on BOLS but I do look forward to your analysis of the latest codex's

The daemonkin codex adds a lot of fun and a lot of options for assault based chaos. I love what you are doing with the lists so far and as another guy with a ton of giant beasts, I'm super excited everytime I see a post come up here knowing you are rolling that kind of insanity into it.

That's a great looking Daemonkin list. I'd prefer Maulerfiends over the Soul Grinder's so they can keep up with the huge unit of death, making target priority a bit harder to decide on. Lasher Tendrils would deal better with a heavier Knight list, and allow them to attack alongside the huge unit against other deathstars. And it'd free up 60 points for something. If I cared for Khorne even a little bit it'd be exactly the list I'd run.
