Goatboy - IN DA HOUSE

Last week was a good painting week. The only thing I didn't get done was build on the Ork Bomba but most other things I got done. Woohoo! I got more test Iron Warriors done, a test Grey Knight, and designed some armies. Woot. I will post the Iron Warriors build I plan to keep myself busy as I paint a clients Grey Knights in the test scheme I did for myself. As usual I don't work on my stuff if it is the same as a client's stuff. It just isn't nice :).

So without further Ado - the week List! I already did some stuff today - cuz I am a machine.

Iron Sanguinor - Completed Today!
Iron Warriors Jump Pack Squad - On the Sprue
Display Board for Adepticon - Small thing - will show it in case peeps are interested.

16 Hellions - Will be going over to his house and doing them on Saturday.

Michael S
Ork Bomba! - Getting Built

Jay R
Display board - Continue with the basing I did for him so he can finish his Death Wing Army

Currently I got some stuff coming in soon to finish up for other clients. More fun stuff in the future. Lots more Chaos Space Marines and I am currently in talks with getting an Ork commission. Will see if that one pans out.

Current Iron Warriors Thought List

HQ: Sanguinor - Wanted something Daemon Prince like and Eternal Warrior is the shiznit versus Grey Knights
Elites: Furioso Librarian
Elites: Furioso Dreadnought, Extra Armor
Elites: Furioso Dreadnought, Blood Talons, Extra Armor
Troops: Ass Squad X 10, Meltagun X 2, Storm Shield, Powerfist
Troops: Ass Squad X 10, Meltagun X 2, Storm Shield, Powerfist, Rhino
Troops: Tact Squad X 10, Meltagun, Missile Launcher, Combi-Melta, Rhino
Heavy: Dreadnought, TWL Autocannon X 2
Heavy: Dreadnought, TWL Autocannon X 2
Heavy: Dreadnought, TWL Autocannon X 2

So yeah - just some robots and dudes. It probably won't work but at least it will look friggin cool. Current test schemes for the army.

I need to get some more dreads and will look at doing some kind of cool conversion with reaper autocannons and something to make the rifleman dreads.

Current thought Grey Knights are looking at Purifier based armies with some utility and other tricky bits. That is the current thought right now and what I plan on building towards. Will see if it works :). But here is the test Grey Knight scheme.

Obviously he used to be a Blood Angel that has been taken in by the Grey Knights. As I get more time looking at the book I will get more pieces done. I know I need to get a Tech Marine and a Vindicare. The Vindicare is exactly what this list needs and I can't wait to start making people mad when I get rid of their Storm Shield/Shadow Field/And whatever other BS thing I can knock off.

Finally a big shot of the Word Bearer/Grammar Wolves army. There are more minis but this is basically the end list with some small changes. Lots of dudes and guns. Cuz I like to go pew pew. I'll probably put it up for sale next month for anyone interested.

More to come later on this week.

I love the Iron Warriors. Why did you switch from the marine book to the Blood Angels? I think you really are missing a techmarine in the list. Also you should go with tactical marines not assault squads. The Iron Warriors are siege troops they don't run out to fight hand to hand. I also probably would not run a librarian, but I'll forgive that. Finally the Word Bearers look great.

I would run one - but it takes away from the Dreadnoughts. Thus the set up. The tactical squad is there cuz - well it gives someone sitting there. I just went with BA due to the dreadnoughts and getting a librarian one which gives me a hood without needing a "librarian".

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

Also the jump packs I got made me have to go BA - so I can have a troop squad.

OMFGAWD !!! Not an Iron Sanguinor !!! I fought one of those last week !!!



Thomas aka Goatboy said...

I wanted something Daemon Prince - and with Force Weapons coming to the forefront Meph will just eat it pretty fast. So Sanguinor is the right choice haha.

Cool will do - the army is bigger then what is shown. There is another rhino/razorback and more dudes and some wolf scouts too. Hell as usually I just don't build one thing haha.
