An update before Iron Halo


Woot post post ost

I got a few lists for the upcoming Iron Halo GT.  Its up in Oklahoma and will be a good 8 hr drive.  Going up with my buddy Brandon and meeting another buddy from Houston up there.  Should be fun - full ITC and lots of other Austin buds are there too.  Will see how well I do.

Currently throwing around 3 lists - first two are painted - just tweaking bases etc if I want to fit on my display board.

List #1 - Flying Circus 2.0

Daemon CAD
Fateweaver
The Masque
Nurglings X 3
Nurglings X 3
Nurglings X 3

Infernal Tetrad
DP, MoK, Wings, Flyer Ace, Armor of Scorn, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift
DP, MoN, Wings, Greater Gift, Exalted Gift, Lvl 3
DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoT, Wings, Impossible Robe, Greater Good X 2, Lesser Gift - Warlord

This is the tried and true Flying circus I have always liked to play.  I got the Masque to mess with Deathstars, Fateweaver to get me a reroll/Lvl 4 caster, and every DP is set up to kick butt.  Still it is small, you can't make mistakes, and the game starts to get hard as soon as you roll your warlord trait. This is the list I am leaning towards as I can make a cool mini display board and as the army is small enough I can use it for around the country.  Don't think it is a big time winner list - but it should do well with paint scores and I am a nice dude.

List # 2 - KDK Star

Cyclopia Cabal
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Staff
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Staff
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Axe
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Axe

KDK Ally
Chaos Lord, Juggernaut, Powerfist, Lightning Claw, Sigil
Cultists X 8
Flesh Hounds X 10

Daemon CAD
Fateweaver - Warlord
Herald of Tzeentch, Paradox, Lesser Gift, Lvl 3, Disc
Herald of Tzeentch, Exalted Gift (Grim, Lvl 3, Disc
Nurglings X 3
Nurglings X 3
Screamers X 6

This is the basic KDK star you will start to see around.  I have 2 Stars with the screamer - but that one is more of an objective grabber/Warp Spider Slasher.  The Chaos Lord is in there as he can get a 3+ with the Sigil and can randomly take challenges for me.  I get an Endurance on him and 4 wounds is hard to get through.  Once the new CSM powers are live this list is going to be rough for a lot of other Stars.  This list is not as hard to play as the Circus and has some redundancy built in.  It is on my list of things to play and again - I just need to tweak some bases to get it ready.

List #3 - Gorepack/Cabal/Kharn

CSM Cad
Kharn
Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Sigil, Axe of Blind Fury, Gift of Mutation
Cultists X 10
Cultists X 10

Cabal
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Staff, Sigil
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Staff, Sigil
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Axe
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Axe
Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Bike, Spell Familiar, Force Axe

Gorepack
Bikers X 3
Bikers X 3
Flesh Hounds X 10
Flesh Hounds X 10
Flesh Hounds X 10

This army can create a few little murder stars, has Kharn in it, and even a Juggernaut lord.  An Axe of Blind Fury with Hammer Hand is pretty dang fun as he gets involved cutting jerks heads off.  I see this list rolling 2 on Biomancy, then Sanctic and finally some Telepathy if they can get some shrouding etc.

I still love the idea of this list - but there is no way I can win 6 games with it - let alone 3.  Still it would be fun to go stomping around with it.

Infernal Tetrad
DP, MoK, Wings, Armor of Scorn, Greater Gift X 2
DP, MoN, Wings, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 2
DP, MoS, Wings, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3
DP, MoT, Wings, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 2, Warlord

Renegade Knight
Renegade Knight

This list is just basic - go at them and punch as much as you can.  Sure it could work some times - but most of the time I am going to lose.  Still it would look cool as heck.

Alright paint list

Me
Kharn - Maybe?
Review Fig - at some point
Frontline Art - Last piece - gene stealer cult - already partway drawn so ya!
BOLS shirt # 2 - need to tweak
BOLS shirt # 3 - Got an idea
BOLS shirt # 4 - sorta an idea
BOLS article - got an idea - most likely about Genestealer cult

Brandon
3 More Rhinos primed - then maybe a drop pod

James
Chaos Space Marine stuff - finish a few things going to knock out some Chosen

Nick
Marine stuff when he figures out more of his list

Luis
Some Infinity figures

Ben
Maybe some Chaos stuff - most likely the conversion stuff

Minis and some arts



Legion of the Damned Vehicles

This was for me - needed a cool herald of Khorne for War-games Con



Figure from Prodoss - gross looking Nurgle Daemon.  I added the Wings and found a big base.

My new Cabal.

Ben Mohile beat me up with a Nurgle Chaos Lord in a Chaos Warband - so I decide to make one out of bits I had.


Wah?  Some Deathwatch?  Army will come - just too focused on the bad guys.

New Chaos commission - woot.

Some fodder for the Chaos Gods.

Typhus in da house!



XXXOOOXXX
