Woohoo! The week begins anew!

Woohoo Goatboy is here. It has been a long week as I get settled back in and start to plan out my miniatures this week. I got a few more things for HOA that I have with me to finish - plus some other random bits and pieces. I got my first Malifaux commission in last week and finished it up today so you will see some pics of that coming up later. I also drew on Big Red's army bag too. Fun times indeed. So let's start with the miniature painting list.

Ron - Malifaux - first model down below - he liked it so I might be doing more.
Lady Justice Boxed Set - Finished them up today.

15 Burna Boyz - In pieces
2 Bikes - Finished - waiting to get more to finish out the squad

Michael S
Bomba - Built - getting primed today - might get some paint on it tomorrow.

Turret for Nurgle Tank - Almost built - need to find barrels and zombie bits. I know they are in a box somewhere - Just a build project

Michael N
Look at building something Orky - I am finally almost ready to begin again on this build - HOA took up lots of time

Michael B
Pull out first tactical Squad for complete and paint - 10 Guys - already built

Art Projects
Continued Board Game Assets - 8 or so pieces - mostly small
Marine vs Tau Poster - Scene design - in planning will get sketches done soon
Banner Design - Complete work on that
Jawaballs Design thingie - Start work on that

Try to paint one Talos for fun? - Will see
Grey Knight Strike Squad + Razorback??? - probably not

Alright enough of that mess - lets look at a new Grey Knight list I want to try out. I call it a tough Nut list as it is designed to be very hard to break if you have to come and get it. It tries to build multiple layers as it engages the enemy and keeps the midfield protected.

HQ: GKM, Psychotroke Grenades
HQ: Librarian, 4 Powers (Quick, Might, Shrouding, Sanc)
Elites: Techmarine, Blind Grenades
Elites: Purifiers X 10, Psycannon X 3, Incincerator, Halberds X 5, Hammer X 1, Rhino
Troops: GKT X 10, Bro Banner, Psybolt, Halberds X 6, Hammers X 2, Psycannon X 2
Troops: GKSS X 5, Psycannon, Daemon Hammer, Razorback, Psybolt
Heavy: Dreadknight, Heavy Incinerator
Heavy: Dreadknight, Heavy Incinerator
Heavy: Dreadknight, Great Sword, Personal Teleporter

2000 pts - and kinda weird list. It is designed to make a base - then you have your mid range threat (Purifiers) and your long range threat (DreadKnights) that can come on their own and beat on things. The Scout ability is pretty neat. I want to test it without the Purifiers and try 3 squads of strikes instead of the one. Also I might not need the Teleport on the Great Sword Dreadknight. I might also try two Tech Marines with Conversion beamers to get my long range fire support. It is a thought list that will probably not work but you never know.

I have toyed with some foot list ideas - so will see when I get a chance to get those out there. I think there is merit there when you design lists that can hit all sides of the board so will see. What kind of things are you finding fun with the GK book?

Now to some painted minis and an art bag.

That is it for now - getting brain tired haha.

What is with the corroded looking GK?
Very interesting looking model, is it suppose to represent a "ghost" knight?

It is a planned Ghost Knight - but most likely will end up being part of a Paladin squad to make it look dif. Super robots!
