I am alive


And still working a lot.  Getting sick after a move - plus kid getting sick and real life work going nutty meant I was just busy.  Too buys to throw up a blog post or two.  But I did do a ton of work - which is what this will be mostly about.  I am still working on an army list as I got an event at the end of June that needs a Chaos Army.  ATC has me playing something I normally don't - but that is ok.  I am there for the team and not to please the chaos masters and how I throw damage out.  I will write up a batrep on ATC and BAO for sure.  I am very excited about 8th edition right now so lists are brewing, building, and mentally draining out of my goat addled brain.  Fun times indeed.

Let's get a paint list together

Me
Finish another BOLS article
Review the other 2 FW books
Finish some Frontline art
Do some Blood Bowl art - got it drawn have to build it and color it.
There is some other art that is in the chat works - need to locked it down so I can get it started.
Finish my Khorne Army then look towards this Nurgle idea.

James L
Start the GK army I have in the garage.  I knocked out a commission this weekend so it is time to start something else.

Nick R
More random stuff depending on what he wants - I think it will be Genestealers will see.

Greg
Big FW Knight dude and maybe future 30k stuff

Another Greg
Clean up some Knights and get them ready for 8th and maybe some Primus Marines

Mike K
Sisters of Battle to add to an existing army and some marine stuff

Luis
Start Infinity again as I can only really do one metal model commission at a time.  They are such a butt to keep together heh.

I am sure other stuff too - I am getting back up to speed and feeling more like myself.  It doesn't help that the kid isn't going to be at 7 anymore - more so like 8ish due to the sun still being out.  Fun times with that kid.

Random list thoughts - I got 5 boxes of Pox Walkers so I have to do something with that.  A few floating  Daemon Princes, Typhus, and some FW Walkers and you got an interesting list that will be a pain.  Plus it has all the bits I like - robots, cool stuff, etc.  It has me thinking for sure.  Will work up a list and throw it out next time I write it up - don't have all the books in front of me.  Lord is building a list hard and annoying.

Alright - lets get to some models and art and call it a day.

Oh man Survived the Move



Thus why no posting for a good bit.  Lord moving sucks but I did find a ton of models haha.  I have too much stuff.  I am so ready for 8th with a ton of Ork options and hopefully a fully finished Death Guard army with some 30k bits thrown in.  So exciting eh?

Right now I am pretty stoked on the upcoming Skirmish AOS coming out.  It will get me to finish a small "Khorne" force as I continue into either a Nurgle Warband or even something else.  I like the idea of having 10-15 models, going into a quick game, and having fun.  Will see - but at 10 dollars I am picking up that book.

The room continues to get put together.  Hopefully next update will get a pic as I have some pics up - all the trades put up and even some models shown.  It feels nice to be in a much bigger house.  Woohoo.

Let's get to paint list - hopefully start back up on Painting tonight

Me
Warband stuff if I feel like it
Articles for BOLS
2 Illustrations right now - more probably coming

Greg
Big Knight guy i need to clean and start

Ryan
Clean up some Sisters of Silence and do 2 Rhinos

Nick
More GSC - build more of them - just to get ready for the new edition

Travis
Pull out the Cryx and get them started - this week will be a small bit of paint then build build build

Luis
More Infinity

Lots of stuff to do - gots to make some cash to help with the extra space hehe.  Always working it.

There isn't much to talk about list wise - I am mentally done with 7th so I am just waiting on the information to come out.  So that just leaves me some AOS stuff.  The idea of a full crusher army has me thinking of doing it.  It doesn't help I found all my old crushers that I won't use as they are all metal.  I like to do new stuff and if I decide to do this I need to do it up right.

AOS - Khorne - Bloodbound Allegiance
Brass Stampede
Khorne Lord on Juggernaut, Violent Urgency, Talisman of Burning Blood
Skull Crushers X 3, Banner, Musician - 7 units

Gore Pilgrims
Bloodsecrator
Slaughter Priests X 2
10 Blood Reavers
5 Blood Warriors

Bloodstoker

That seems fun - lots of Juggers, some bodies to run behind and portal action to get work.  If I get the double turn I should hurt people pretty good hehe.  I doubt I will find time to paint it - maybe do it as a slow build as I get more and more pieces during my travels,  trades, etc.

Alright - lets look at some models and artwork and call it a day.

Bringing it back


The blog that is.  Haha - man it has been a whirlwind of days since the last time I posted.  We put our house up on the market, got a bidder that weekend, and found the house we like a bit further up north in Leander.  We put a bid on that, it got except and now it is a dance of mortgage companies, title companies, and getting everything in order.  It is a nice house, big, with a ton more room.  And I get a decent office with a nice garage and sun room.  Woohoo.

Beyond that I have been slowing painting things to get commissions out the door, finishing other things, throwing away a ton of stuff, and getting ready for the move.  Let's work out a list of where I am at right now and go from there.

Me
Random test miniatures
Maybe some Tzeentch
Depending on if I get to go to Alamo what kind of list I want to bring
Articles for BOLS
Art for Frontline
Art for RobbieB
I am sure I am missing something but who knows

Greg
Big Super Knight if I can find time to do it before I move

El Paso Tournament
1 Final Daemon Prince that is built and primed

Ryan
2 Big Wolves from FW to finish off this

Mike
More space Marines and other random stuff - need to ship off daemons to him to so he can borrow em

Nick
GSC, Marines, Tau

Travis
More Cryx that hopefully won't die in the mail - lord the USPS wrecked some minis I had sent him.

Luis
More Infinity

I am sure there are others but I am beat right now haha.

Currently I am tempted to play either a Tetrad and friends lists, death guard for fun, or some kind of sisters monstrosity at Alamo.  Who knows as they are going full GW FAQ so things might be nutty with stomps going everywhere. I do like the idea of not having to worry about psychic phases so it makes me lean towards a Sisters thought.

Current Idea #1 - based on if this test model looks cool to do evil blind Khrone daemon sisters.

Sisters of Silence Null Maiden Force
Sisters with Swords X 5, Rhino
Sisters with Swords X 5, Rhino
Sisters with Swords X 5, Rhino

Champion of Fenris Wolves
WGBL, Thunder Wolf, Runic, Powerfist, SS
WGBL, Thunder Wolf, Runic, Powerfist, SS
Elite Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 3
Elite Iron Priest, Thunder, Cyber Wolves X 3

Blood Angels CAD
Sang Priest, Bike, Melta Bomb
Sang Priest, Bike, Melta Bomb
Scouts X 5, Melta Bomb
Scouts X 5, Melta Bomb

This is a go big and come at you hard.  I would probably put one of the Sang Priest as the Warlord to see if you could get scout or something else goofy for the big fat units of dumb.  You turn off powers, come in hot, and have FNP on the units.  Heck you even have some Obj Secured if needed.  Plus this would be a full on Goat army if I played it.

Still like this one too - sisters with knights and some White Scars

Baronial Court
Warden
Warden
Paladin

Sisters of Silence Null maiden
Sisters with Swords X 5, Rhino
Sisters with Swords X 5, Rhino

WS Cad
Tech Marine, Conversion Beamer, Hunters Eye, Bike, Melta Bomb
Bikers X 3, Grav Gun X 2
Bikers X 3, Grav Gun X 2
Bikers X 3, Grav Gun X 2
Bikers X 3, Grav Gun X 2

Basic MSU with some Anti Psyker plus 3 Knights to go stomp stuff.  Simple and easy.  Plus the Conversion beamer can be a ton of fun as you take out things in the back field.

I still have a soft spot in my heart for this dumb mess too.

Oracles - LOC and Fate Formation
Fateweaver - Warlord
LoC, Im Robe, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift
LoC, Paradox, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift
LoC, Greater Gift, Exalted Gift

Renegade Knight
Renegade Knight

I have Paradox on what is most likely the initial summoning of Pink Horrors to spawn out.  I have 2 Close Combat Knights that are just coming for you and the 4 Flying Jerks to just get around the table and cause issues.  The LoC's are level 2's as most of the time I need a summon and then from there I can maybe get lucky with a Cursed Earth.  After that there isn't a ton more to do - summon something on the table top, get around the table and smash shit.

Alright enough of that - lets post some minis and call it a night.
