Goatboy's Sometime Post and stuffs



Man I will say this - getting sick sucks.  I got sick for a few days 2 weeks ago - then my wife got sick a few days afterwards.  I thought it was food poisoning but it looks like it was a stomach bug sort of thing.  Pain in the butt for sure.  It really kicked me down a few pegs on working so that is why this post was short with not much worked on.  But hopefully that will change in the coming weeks.  I also had my son's first birthday party - so that killed a weekend with family in town, mom in law in the house for awhile, and just no time.  Meh!

Ok let's do a paint list.  I am planning on knocking out big chunks this weekend to start on new stuff.  It never ends for the Goat.

Me
10 Purifiers - built and almost all painted.  I have 5 more to finish up with some colors etc.
Another 10 Purifiers to finish off the GK/BA thing
1 Drop Pod
Some illustration stuff as usual
Food Hammer Donation - Wolf Lord idea.

Alan
Chaos Stuff - once I knock out this DA commission it is onto some Chaos stuff.

Tim
Finish a Dark Angels started box and some Meltaguns

John
Some random Black Knights and a Chaplain Conversion

Don
Some other model company stuff.

Luis
More Necromunda and other stuff.

Carl
Space marine Bikers

Nick
Space Marine stuff maybe?

I am sure other stuff too as people ask me questions about smaller commissions.  A lot of the time I can knock that out quickly so will see.

I tested out a Dual Knight list this past week against my buddy Nick.  He beat the ever living snot out of me as I failed a lot of saves, he hit with all his deep strikes and just wrecked me with an Elysium build.  It was rough and while the army wasn't bad - it was just not prepared to get beaten up like that.  I have a feeling if I played less aggressive and protected my knights more - I might have done better.  I think that is the key with a Dual Knight list - keep them protected.

What I played - then what I would change too based on what I see in the meta.

Knight Crusader, Battlecannon, Storm Spear Missile Pod
Knight Crusader, Battlecannon, Storm Spear Missile Pod

WGBL, Thunder Wolf, Runic, Powerfist, SS
WGBL, Thunder Wolf, Runic, Powerfist, SS
Wolf Priest, Bike, Runic
Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 4
Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 4
Fenris Wolves X 12

I should have used the big blob to keep deep striking honest, hide in the corner and just shot stuff and came out after things came down.  It seems like it could work - but I can see some tweaks.

Since it is only a 2 source list I could look at adding in Inquisition with RAD and Psyotroke grenades.  It would keep some Deathstars honest as they have to worry about coming in and getting effed up.  It is a thought and I might test it more.  This list seems designed to put a hurt on Gladius for sure.  Knights with this much shooting can knock out a ton of guys if needed and being "immune" to grav might be worth it.  I do wonder if I drop down the Iron Priests etc - or set them up to fix knights if needed.

Knight Crusader, Storm Spear Missile Pod

WGBL, Thunder Wolf, Runic, Powerfist, SS

Wolf Priest, Bike
Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber X 3
Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber X 3
Fenris Wolves X 10

Inquisitor, Servo Skulls X 3, Rad Grenades, Psycotroke Grenades

It looks janky but in a day and age of having a ton of Death Stars this is an annoying one.  You can't really throw into it due to the issues of getting screwed on the grenades.  Plus it still hits plenty hard too.  It is a thought for sure - plus the Servo Skulls can keep Gladius Scooting far away.

Here is the Updated 2 Knights list from what I played at Wargames con.

Knight Crusader, Storm Spear
Knight Crusader, Battle Cannon, Storm Spear

DA
Chaplain, Bike, Auspex, Meltabomb
Ravenwing Command X 4, Apoc upgrade
Scouts X 5, Combi-Melta
Scouts X 5, Combi-Melta

Wolf Guard BL, Runic, PF, SS
Wolf Guard BL, Runic, PF, SS

Servitor

It kinda feels dumb but it could work.  It has some pain in there and extra scouts are always a help.

Current BA/GK build

GK Libbie, Lvl 3
GK Libbie, Lvl 3
Purifiers X 10, Incinerators X 4
Purifiers X 10, Incinerators X 4
Purifiers X 10, Incinerators X 4, Daemonhammer
Strike Squad X 5

Flesh Tearers
Mephiston
Libbie, Lvl 2, Power Axe
Tactical Squad X 5, Meltagun, Combi-Melta, Drop Pod
Assault Squad X 5, Meltagun X 2, Combi-Melta, Drop Pod
Drop Pod
Drop Pod
Drop Pod
Drop Pod

Gives me 6 Pods - Meph to go after Knights and Wraith Knights and plus a decent amount of melta as needed.  It is probably a really weird list but it will get done soon.  Oh and it isn't evil look so a win for me!

Alright enough crappy lists - onto some models.

Did a set of models for a wedding - this is an extra one, one of the guests wanted because they liked what I did.


Necromunda stuffs!

I have 3 more of these guys, attack bike, and a speeder left to do.
BJORN!!! he is gonna touch ya in a bad place.

Paint like you mean it.

You are getting into the age where they bring everything home. Plan on being sick A LOT. I think i had a year there where i must have been sick everyone other damn week. Hope you can stay healthy and keep on with the hobby stuff! I once cleaned a brush in some neo citran late one night. Still knocked me out ;)

At least the little one didn't get sick. I'll take that every time.
