Woohoo Crazy Week!!

We got 7th edition on he horizon - an event coming up - shit need to send my list in.  More work to do.  Get the house baby ready... big task - plus I should hook up this Xbox one a friend let me borrow as he gets his house ready after his move.  Fun times indeed.  Man.

I need to move my mini corner in the living room upstairs.  That is going to suck as I really need to pair down some bit stuff.  I have a ton of shit I don't need... ughs.  But hey - does anyone know if GW sprue is recyclable?  Meh.

Army list for Alamo.  I need to play something I like and I am decent with.  Thus FMC daemons. I don't have time to get my Knights ready - as I just have one painted haha.  I am still planning on this crazy Knight plus Guard list.  Here is the initial idea - with the knights being examples of the 4 different Chaos Gods.

Imperial Knights + Astra Militarium

Warlord: Slaanesh Knight - Knight Paladin
Khorne Knight - Knight Errant
Tzeentch Knight - Knight Paladin
Nurgle Knight - Knight Paladin

Command Squad
Ministorum Priest
Primaris Psyker, Lvl 2
Infantry Platoon Command
Infantry Platoon, Lascannon, Meltabombs
Infantry Platoon, Lascannon, Meltabombs
Infantry Platoon, Lascannon, Meltabombs

Total should be 1850.

Alamo GT FMC Circus/Bastion Jesus - Daemons/CSM

HQ: Fateweaver
HQ: Daemon Prince, MoS, Wings, Armor, Exalted Gift, Greater Gift, Lvl 3 Psyker
Troops: Daemonettes X 11, Allures
Troops: Pink Horrors X 11, Iridescent Horror
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Wings, Armor, Exalted Gift, Greater Gift, Lvl 3 Psyker

HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Cultist X 10
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer

Fortification: Bastion Jesus

Yeah I know - it is a netish list - but I will have a cool painted Bastion with eyes and everything else looks cool.  Might just do all Daemonettes as they are all painted better then the horrors - but enh.  But this is what I turned in too the list review for the Alamos!  Woohoo - plus I painted up my Bastion.  I need to get my display board finished - the other one I had didn't get back with me from Adepticon.

Paint list

Plastic Dudesmen - Got an idea while walking/running - it might be funny - it deals with the ultimate new Miniature invention from GW
Article to write - not sure what to do this week - maybe 7th edition hopes/thoughts?
Build Khorne Knight - got the parts - waiting to figure it out
Finish painting Bastion - built it last night
Art wise - got some small stuff and other ideas I want to do - will see if I get it done.

2 Broadsides with 2 Drones - Built and not primed
2 Bases to match other armies of the Dreadnought size - need to find one more

Lots of old metal Daemons cuz Don hates me.

Finished his Brothers commission - time to work on more Terminators that I have primed - 5 Assault ones and then some Assault marines

Caleb - NecroOrks
Got 6 more primed to do
And of course more and more - look for another big batch this weekend - wife is working all weekend woohoo - time to watch Hannibal and maybe play a game.


More NecroOrks - Really like the Lootas - Didn't build them - done by White Metal Miniatures.


Slaanesh Knight!

The Tentacles are extensions to feel the pain and damage he causes.

Do I got good back?

What should his name be?

Time to pack these Ultramarines up.
Banners start at $25.00 depending on what you want.

Final Frontline Art - woohoo got a way to do Patina effects on artwork.

Art for Feast of Blades - sucks I can't make it this year - dang baby and all.

Sunday Postings - Woot

Got a good chunk of art done - you will see it down below.  I have a few more things left to do and then I will probably end up getting more.  I am thinking of stopping Plastic Dudesmen due to just being tired.  I am tired of the effort getting pooped on a ton.  I might have one more in me making fun of 40k Cosplay but meh.  Will see how I feel later on this week.  I am a workhorse so the chore of it is just in my schedule.  I keep thinking of doing a cool random hyper action comic.  Fun times.  Meh!

Alright - list of stuff then Army list thoughts for Alamo GT - I got to decide by the End of the Month.

Plastic Dudesmen - If I don't quite need to do one
BOLS Article - need to think of a new one - want to do an artist thing but with the AG they want more of those things
2-3 More Khorne Heralds for list idea
Maybe another Tzeentch Herald idea too.
More work on Evil knight - lets are almost built
Frontline Art - One more left - Rhul thingie
Commission for a Banner/Icon
Test work for another buddy that might turn into more
Logo test work for another company/buddy I know
Logo work for a Forum

Anthony - Daemons
10 Plague Bearers - Done
DP rework - Done
Portal - Done

3 Centurions - Done
10 Assault Squad - not done
More stuff after this.

2 Broadsides with Shield Drones - not done

8 Primed and started
A ton more to do

I will have an IG order coming in before long too.  It should be fun to compliment the Knights I did earlier.

Ok - I have decided the army I plan on playing is Daemons/CSM - just have to decide the type of flavor.

Current Flavor - will try to test on Thursday.

HQ: Fatewaver
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Exalted Gift
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Exalted Gift
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Lesser Gift
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Lesser Gift
Troops: Daemonettes X 10, Alluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 10, Alluress
FA: Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 10

HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Cultists
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer

Fortification: Vengeance Batteries X 2, Quad Las Cannon

1850 on the nose.  This one is pretty copy and paste nonsense but I think it could be fun.  I go forward, cast some spells and do crazy stuff.

I could drop fate weaver and the whole grim nonsense and go with a LOC.  That one is pretty boss.  Shit I could go with a FMC type of build too - but the Herald group sounds cool as shit haha.

Ugh... I hope we see a nice change in May for 40k.  I really do.  Will see if they can tweak some stuff or more events just drop Battle Bros.  Just drop it please. 2 Books and no Battle Bros is what most likely needs to be tweaked.  It just feels better.  I guess you could just say Battle Bros can't join units that are not from their parent book but ... blargh.

I need to buy some plane tickets too.  Just to get all my ducks in a row for the events.  I got ATC, Nova, Alamo, SpikeyCon and Texas Games Con.  That is it for me for the year hahah.  Plus the baby right hehe.

Man - this comic thing just wears me out at times.  I gets hard after awhile to try and do it week after week for what sometimes feels - lackluster response.  Meh - but hey people love to hate on me and I guess that is worth... it?  Blargh...

Goatboy's Sunday before we begin the work week.

Woohoo - started to ramp up as I got back from Adepticon.  My voice was shot for a few days.  Beyond that I am just a bit beat haha.  I have a lot of work to do so hopefully I can knock out more this week.  I got some more commission stuff in, some thoughts on if I want to do more "writing" and as usual more art.  Woohoo!

Fortification: Vengeance Weapon's Battery X 2, Quad Lascannons X 2

1850 on the nose - I wanted to test some things for the upcoming Alamo GT tournament in San Antonio.  It is a more laid back event so I went with stuff all over the place.  If the Vengeance batteries should themselves to be good - might run Spawn bomb haha.

Report from the game.

He got a little aggressive so I was able to jump out, blow up a transport and cause issues in his middle.  Called it quick cuz he was about to be out of troops.  Things I learned.

Vengeance batteries - the shit with Quad Lascannons.  Playing Knights and they allowed updated Fortifications from Stronghold? Take these guys.  Big must!
Don't need 2 dragons - one can work.
The Khorne Lord on a Jugger who gets the 2+ armor save mutation is baller.
Bel'akor in these style lists is probably too good as he gives you answers to everything.

So most likely will do some changes to the list to make it more enjoyable.  Not sure what yet - but will post those ideas.

Now stuff you care about - Models and art.
The NecOrks begin.

2 More broadsides to go.

Get these guys done and out of da house!

Frontline Art - woot! 4 more to go. They use these for Batreps.

Goatboy's Tuesday

Won't have much to show this week - being gone for a lot of it obviously.  Let's get in some rants first.

1. Postal Service - 3 Knights that were supposed to get to a Client on Monday didn't get there till Wednesday night.  They were damaged but repairable.  Makes me mad cuz he needed them for Adepticon.  Still he was happy with them and will probably add more guard to the army :).  Also another item going to Canada has just left customs there after more then 2 weeks?  Meh!

2. Tournament 40k - Man events need more LOS terrain, do something about these lists, and I don't know what else.  I think Battle Bros is going to be the first thing dropped then maybe something about rerollable saves.  Will see.

3. Losing your voice sucks.

Ok basic rants - just wanted to get annoyances off my chest.  Let's write up a paint list for my week and go from there.  I also need to find someone locally good at repairing house stuff.  Meh!

Plastic Dudesmen - Idea gotten, need to draw it.  Combo off of Ben Mohile, Alicia, and Wyatt.  Probably others but it is funny.  Hopefully I can draw it.
Article - kind of a shout out to TO's to hopefully do something - will see
Slaanesh Knight Titan - Starting my first personal Titan.  I know someone else was thinking of asking me to chaos some Titans up so I figured I would start on my corrupted Househould of Flesh.  Think of bodies embedded in the legs and all kinds of fun stuff.
Figure out Knight Lists
Start on Frontline Art - got one drawn - need 7 more.
Work on Artist interview questions for future articles.

Piranaha #1 - Build & Paint
Piranaha #2 - Build & Paint
Got 2 Broadsides to do too - but probably next week.

10 Ultramarine Tacticals - Build & Paint
10 Assault Marines - Build & Paint
3 Centurions - Build & Paint

Draigo customer build - need to start getting it together and planning it out

Customer Daemon Restore/Paint
10 Plague Bearers

Captain America 2: Winter Solider was awesome.  People should see it.  So much better then I expected and I can't wait for Guardians of the Galaxy.

Sorry no battle reports.  It was kind of lackluster and I don't feel like writing up me being whiney.  Just know some games were good - a lot were boring.  So leave it at that.  Right now I am just focusing on getting the Hobby side done for a bit with some list ideas as usual.  But I have to jet off to work so I can pay my bills.  Dancing doesn't cut it no more haha.
