Finished some things



Got a ton more to do.  Lots and lots to do.  Look for more updates later on this week before I head out to Iron Halo.  Let's get a paint list out of a way - some lists for Iron Halo I am thinking about and then some models I have done with some art.

Paint List

Me
Bols Article - Currently written - need to look more at the Death Guard and points to build lists
Art Commission - a 4 piece of banners
Art Commission - Frontline Banners
And I am sure some other reworks

Greg S
IG stuff that just came in - will look at it next week

Greg
Big ole Knight that has been starting at me for 2 months

James
GK stuff!

Nick
Rough rider finish up once I find parts and some small bit of GSC

Mike K
Some small sister stuff to finish up

Christian
The Changling that is already built

Luis
Infinity and eventually Necromunda

And I am sure some other stuff.  Fun times indeed.

Ok some list thoughts for Iron Halo which is in a few weeks.  As the Lord of Skulls is usable I am pretty sure I am forced to use him - at least mentally.  Hell I want to use him.  Plus I want to use these new Contemptor Dreadnoughts I painted up down below.  Let's look at list one.

Alpha Legion Battalion
HQ: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Elixir - Slaanesh FNP power
HQ: Daemon Prince of Nurgle, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2 - Nurgle power
HQ: Sorcerer, Jump Pack, Force Axe - Warptime & Something needed
Troops: Cultists X 20
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Elite: Contemptor Dreadnought, Soul Burner X 2, Dreadfists X 2
Elite: Contemptor Dreadnought, Soul Burner X 2, Dreadfists X 2
Elite: Contemptor Dreadnought, Soul Burner X 2, Dreadfists X 2

Super Heavy Aux Detachment
Lord of Skulls, Daemongore Cannon, Hades Gatling Cannon

This lets me use my Contemptor Dreads, gives me some protection with -1 to hit - and the ability to bring back some Cultists.  Command points are low so that is an issue.

Here is a rougher version of the list I feel that utilizes some BS units that I am sure are going to get Nerfed soon.

Alpha Legion Battalion
HQ: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Elixir, Warp Bolter - FNP power
HQ: Daemon Prince of Nurgle, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter - Nurgle Power
HQ: Sorcerer, Jump Pack, Force Axe
Troops: Cultists X 25
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Heavy: Obliterators X 3, Mark of Slaanesh

Alpha Legion Battalion
HQ: Daemon Prince of Tzeentch, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter - Tzeetnch Power
HQ: Daemon Prince of Tzeentch, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter - Warp Time
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10

Super Heavy Auxiliary Detachment
LoW: Lord of Skulls, Daemongore Cannon, Hades Gatling Cannon

This gives me some Double Shooting with the Obliterators - 24 super plasma style shots seem good.  It has the ability to do some double move options and again - a large amount of smites as needed.  I really want to test with the Oblits and wonder if two squads mixed with the LoS might be worth it.  This again is all painted beyond matching some bases to make it look more cohesive.

Next one is a non LoS one that is more - go fast, get involved and start punching the enemy.

Renegade Army
Battalion
HQ: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Elixir, Warp Bolter - Warp Time
HQ: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Elixir, Warp Bolter - FNP power
Elite: Contemptor Dreadnought, Soul Burner X 2, Dreadfists X 2
Elite: Contemptor Dreadnought, Soul Burner X 2, Dreadfists X 2
Elite: Contemptor Dreadnought, Soul Burner X 2, Dreadfists X 2
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10

Battalion
HQ: Daemon Prince of Nurgle, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter - Nurgle power
HQ: Daemon Prince of Tzeentch, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter - Tzeentch power
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Heavy: Obliterators X 3, Mark of Slaanesh

It is all about going fast and hitting as hard as you can.  Being able to move, advance, and assault is pretty dang good.  I might drop some stuff to get 2 squads of Zerkers in rhinos - but who knows.  This is another thought list that could be interesting.

Ok enough of that - some models and other goodies to look at.



Part of the Daemon order with Changling coming.  These guys are Bones models and the trick to them - don't spray prime them.

My version of Huron - axe, claw, flames, little turd who helps casts more spells.

3rd Built comtemptor

1st Test Comtemptor

Second guy - you can tell I got blood thirster bits.

Holy crap so happy these guys were finecast.


Test GSC rough rider - came out pretty dang cool.
Did this for a buddy to use.  All digital.

More Frontline stuff.
