Some minis I have been painting

First, the first Eldar figure. The forces idea is that originally this strike force had an Avatar, but after fighting with a Slaneesh force, the avatar was consumed by a Greater Demon of Slaneesh. The Eldar force, in-tuned with the Avatar, rushed to go save it and is thus lost in the folds of the warp. Should be fun to paint up, but here is the first Banshee test as they are getting influenced and burned by Chaos.

Next we have the new obliterators I have been working on. I don't like the metal ones for a few reasons.
1. I hate metal models
2. They look like they are all taking dumps on their bases
3. They cost way too much $

So instead, I converted some terminators. Hooray green stuff and random bits. They are 9 total, and here are the last 3 I worked up. GW Metal ones $22*9=198, Terminators + green stuff and bits = 100+12+0=112!!! Savings!!! Hooray!!! Anyway onto the minis.

Bunch of lists

Here are my tournament lists that I plan on throwing down with in some upcoming tournaments. Of course, seeing as how I am constantly fiddlin with crap, they might change bit by bit, but here are some things I want to play in the upcoming tournaments.

First Chaos. I normally play Chaos, due to the fact that the army is fully painted, and it is one of the few armies I feel I have chance versus most of anything. And it is pretty easy to create a fluff and a heavy list as needed.

First, new thought on a Heavy List. This is most likely what I will be playing in the gladiator tournament at Adepticon. It will probably get stomped, as I am not fielding anything crazy, but hell I am sure I will have fun. And it means I need to create some obliterators.

HQ: Demon Prince, Mark of Slaneesh, Wings, Lash of Submission
Pts: 155 X 2
Elites: Chosen Squad (10), Icon of Khorne, Meltagun X 2, Power Fist X3, Asp Champ
Pts: 315
Troops: Noise Marines (10), Blastmaster, Sonic Blaster (9), Asp Champ, Power Weapon, Meltabomb
Pts: 320 X 2
Fast Attack: Raptors (10), Plasma Pistol 2, Mark of Khorne, Asp Champ, Power Fist
Pts: 300
Heavy: Obliterators (2)
Pts: 150 X 3

Troops: 48, scoring 9
Thoughts on changes, taking out marks of Khorne and rearranging some things to get 9 oblits. Taking out Chosen and just using Raptors as the quick attack unit or counter assault.

Hobby Tournament list

HQ: Demon Prince, Mark of Slaneesh, Lash of Submission, Wings
Pts: 155
HQ: Chaos Lord, Mark of Slaneesh, Daemon Weapon, Meltabombs
Pts: 140
Elites: Chosen (9), Mark of Slaneesh, Plasma Gun (3), Power Weapon (2), Asp Champ, Meltabomb
Pts: 272
Troops: Noise Marines (10), Blastmaster, Sonic Blaster (9), Asp Champ, Power Weapon, Meltabomb
Pts: 320 X 2
Heavy: Obliterators (2)
Pts: 150
Heavy: Land Raider, Dem possession
Pts: 240
Heavy: Defiler, 2 Xtra close combat
Pts: 150
Fast Attack: Raptors (10), Mark of Chaos, Asp Champ, Power Fist
Pts: 250

Troops: 45 Scoring: 8
A tweak on my Heavy list, with more emphasis on Slaneesh, with one Chaos undivided squad. This list should be fun, but I can see first turns, Defilers eatin it pretty good. But hell you get to kill a pink army. Lord rides with the Chosen in the pink Land Raider. Hooray!!!

Orks: First heavy list I want to play in tournies and then my fun list I want to create.

HQ: Ghaz da destroya of dreams
Pts: 225
HQ: Weirdboy, Warphead
Pts: 85
Troops: Shoota boyz (30), Rokkit Launchas (3), Nob, Power Klaw
Pts: 245 x 2
Troops: Slugga Boyz (30), Rokkit Launchas (3), Nob, Power Klaw
Pts: 245 x 2
Troops: Trukk Boyz (12), Rokkit Launcha, Nob, Power Klaw, Trukk, Red Paint
Pts: 157
Fast Attack: Stormboyz (12), Nob, Power Klaw, Bosspole
Pts: 184 X 3

Troops: 170 Scoring: 8
Chances for first turn assaults is pretty gross with this army. The thought, is to have a constant wave of assaulting green skins. The stormboyz squads are there to get a guaranteed second turn of assault. In there is chance for a first turn on top of that too. 12 inch +d6 move, if the weirdboy gets a waagh first turn, that is another +d6, for a total of 30 inch assault basically. Not much can stand a constant wave of doom coming at them, and the 4, 30 ork squads coming down with less fire killing them, can be pretty deadly. I feel this list would wreck Big Bugs, and a lot of other armies will have trouble with such a quick assault.

Orks Hobby List (BIKE ARMY OF DOOM!!!)

HQ: Warboss, Warbike, Cybork Body, Power Klaw, Attack Squig
Pts: 145 X 2
Troops: Nobz (6), Warbikes (6), Power Klaw (5), Painboy, Cybork Body (6), Bosspole
Pts: 460 X 2
Elites: Nobz (5), Warbikes (5), Power Klaw (4), Painboy, Cybork Body (5), Bosspole, Combi Skorcha (2)
Pts:395 X 2

Troops: 24 Scoring: 4
Yeah, this list is just dumb but it will sure be fun. My games will last, like... a few minutes haha. But yeah, it is dumb, but it is orky as hell :).

Tell me what you think of the lists.

Quick post on a chaos army idea

Tell me what you think, BFG eavy list report coming, need to find my camera cord. But onto the list. This would be a heavy list, but I think it could be interesting.

Demon Prince, Mark Slaneesh, Lash, Wings
155 X 2
Chosen (10), Meltaguns *2, Power Fists *3, Mark Khorne, Asp Champ
Chosen (10), Plasmaguns *3, Pair Lit Claws *2, Mark Slaneesh, Asp Champ
Thousand Sons (7), Asp Sorceror, Bolt of Change
Thousand Sons (7), Asp Sorceror, Bolt of Change
Noise Marines (10), Sonic Blasters (9), Blastmaster, Asp Champ, Power Weapon
Raptors (10), Mark Chaos Undivided, Meltagun *2, Asp Champ, Power Fist

Total 1997

Thoughts? Been playing Havoks and I have started to find them lacking. They shoot for a bit, then suck it up and are kinda wasted point wise. Not being able to move and shoot, really hampers them. Thought about obliterators, but have found them lacking too in some ways. I don't like something that costs 75 points and can be sorched by a lascannon pretty easily. That's just me. Will see, will have to test this out.
