Man we need some FAQs eh?

This wait is kind of poops - but hopefully we will see something by the end of the week.  Right now too much is up in the air and I think even with summon heavy Daemons will end up tanking it to Troop spammed marines.  Reese's list is a great example of this and I feel with some tweaks we might  see something strong out of there.

Oh yeah I get to find out the baby's sex tomorrow!  Most likely a girl (had dreams before, figured it would be, wife thinks so).  If a girl it will be June Reidy with maybe Olive or Alle or something for the middle name.  Will see - very excited.

Heck add in two knights (I don't remember if you can) and you have a crazy marine force.  Something like 5 Rhino squads - some shit heads, libbie or two or go the crazy Chapter Master route. Heck I figured a Clan Raccoon one with lots of troops will also work as those rhinos will be a bitch to remove if you don't kill them right away.  I always like that Chapter Master as he gets work done.

Who knows what events will do.  I bet they go 2 sources only for most events.  I know it eff's Inquisition but man - we might just need to limit it so we are not insane.  Will see - I caused a good amount of stink with my article.  Hooray!

I bet the only daemons with access to that spell set is gonna be the Daemon Princes and Heralds.  As they are known to bring their friends in.  Will see though.  Right now I am excited people are taking a stand to what events are going to be like.  The two big heads are hopefully going to work together and get a massive batch of events following their FAQ/rules/Ideas/Etc.  Hopefully they work it out and keep their pants on.  Hell...

Alright - let's see a paint list first of all.

Plastic Dudesmen - Got one partway drawn but got another idea from a buddy - will see.  The last one did ok amazingly enough.  I wonder if people have figured out their comments don't matter?
Knight # 3 - Might be Nurgle - might be Tzeentch - will see
Custom Bike Chapter Master Build - no paint just build for a client - ordered the shield bits need to find a cool hammer
Custom Hive Tyrant of Chaos for NControl - started it got the head built and started tweaking the legs - need to figure out the guns - thinking Forge Fiend Gattling guns?
Need to figure out more possessed dammit - my stupid ideas!
Oh yeah - Orks!!! - got some Kromlech Review Orks to do - woohoo

Pulled out 10+ old skool Pink Horrors to do - will prime em up when it stop raining and do this week
Some old school flesh hounds too because Don hates me.

2 Predators - Primed
2 Rhinos - not primed - damn the rain

AG/IG/etc - need to get to figure out what kind of scheme he wants and go from there

Necro orks - initial box is almost done - got a monolith and Arc Node thingie to do - then I can ship off the initial batch and move on from there.

Chris C
Dark Elf stuff - got some executioners to do.

I think that covers it for now - probably do other stuff too.  Still want to do some hand drawn Primarch art at some point.  Using markers, hate, etc.  Will see.  The Wife is playing Titanfall after we borrowed an Xbox One.  It might convince her to get one at some point.  When Halo 5 comes out she will want to play that.  Woohoo.

The one thing is - with the new rules you can do stupid stuff like this.

Crimson Slaughter + FOC Daemons
HQ: Sorcerer, Lvl 3, Prophet of Voices, MoT, Spell Familiar, Bike
Troops: Possessed X 10, MoT
Troops: Cultists X 10

Would you like some Punch?

The attack of Draigo - the whips remove attacks?

Old man is like - get off my lava lawn!

Survived Alamo 40k Gt

With a 2nd place overall finish.  Woohoo!  I went 4-1 with that CSM list and survived a lot of knights.  In fact - my jugger lord punked out a 3 Knights and only died twice.  Let's get a list of what he killed over the event.

Game 1 - A few squads of biker marines, Shield Eternal Lord, and Khan.
Game 2 - Coteaz, Inquisitor, Grand Master
Game 3 - 2 Knights, The Scion Vehicle and almost a 3rd Knight (whiffed on 7 str 9 hits...) he died here
Game 4 - He didn't get to do much - got shot a lot and died.  It was killing 2 knights that did him in cuz he was tired.
Game 5 - 1 Knight, Master of the Forge, Devastator Squad and some Servitors.

Overall he did smashing.  My Sorcerer did ok - he got a Knight in the last game with a lucky meltabomb.  The Lascannon batteries killed enough hull points to let the Sorcerer get the lucky hit and survive the sword hits and stomp attacks.  My opponent rolled badly :(.

Still I had fun and was glad to repeat a 2nd overall appearance.  I got it last year too haha.  Woohoo!  And I played a fun list too.  Full of Assault.  Juggerlords are a pain in the ass.  It might mean I should mess with them more in 7th edition.  Will see - new rules, new ideas, and hopefully fun games.  I think the idea of revolving missions during a game might be really cool.  Makes each turn extremely important especially when you have to push and force an objective to win.  It means no game is exactly the same and I think there is merit in that.

Hell I learned Knights can get punched in the face pretty hard - and super assault options are the best.  I would use the spawn to hit first - incase of an explosion it would only get some d on those jerk hole spawn.  Spawn did really well - daemon side of things not so much - but the Spawn did great.  T5-T6 is a big help.

Will see - hell events could make some missions locked and others crazy with max points you can earn.  Or hell you just keep points through the whole thing and you get games where both players sort win as they both get a ton of VPs.  Interesting thoughts indeed.

I am going to work on designing the Nurgle knight and then getting some games in with 3 Knights.  I wish they could play with Chaos :(.  I really do.

Paint list

Plastic Dudesmen - got script for one - got ideas for others - will see what comes out
Article - 7th edition eh?
Nurgle Knight - I can start working on it.  Ordered bits for Tzeentch knight.
Design start for customer Yarrick
Design start for Chaos/Evil Hive Tyrant - going to go with Iron Warriors type of theme
Design start for Khan super biker - bits ordered
I have some art I need to work on - trying to figure out a logo thing for a big team idea - issue might too many things to work out - will see.

Necro Orks - almost finished with the first batch - a few small things then big thing - then the second batch!

Chris C
Dark Elves - 11 total to do in the small batch - got the Cauldron done.

IG /AG came in - will start breaking it down and getting it ready to go.

Luis P
More Flesh Tearers - new BA book will make these guys viable for sure.

Old Skool daemons get started in a day or two - more work over the weekend!

Draigo display
Need to build the Daemonettes.  Combo out of DE stuff, Daemonette stuff, and green stuff-  Hope to build and paint by the weekend.  Draigo looks good.

So yeah that is it for now.  Man - dumb ideas for lists.

Crimson Slaughter/Black Legion

HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Jugger, Powerfist, Lightning Claw, Gift of Mutation, Prophet of Voices

Troops: Cultists X 10

1850 on the nose - looks goofy as shit but it sends a ton of missiles at you.  Could be cool with the Possessed.  They get that Beast power haha.  Meh ideas indeed.  Plus it means I paint another Jugger lord.  I got one more plastic one left I can combo out into a cool one.  Damnit ideas again!

Let's get some art and models out of the way and end this.

Goatboy's Sunday - Bunk Mini week due to - well real work being busy.

Woohoo - it was an odd week.  I changed up my list for Alamo and went with something more fun.  The new rumors for 7th edition actually excite me.  The cost of buying a new book makes me gassy.  But overall - life seems to be ok.  In a few weeks will find out the babies sex.  It will be cool - probably a girl but I want a boy too hahah.  Oh I go some Airbrush stuff in so look for that in a few weeks as I get some more training while up at Spikey Bits/FTW games.  Woohoo!  More to come about that as it gets closer but so far my ass is there.

Ok - list for Alamo.  A hell of a lot more fun then Circus haha.  I will lose like a boss!  Wife isn't coming down to San Antonio so that means... well I will drink a bit more haha.

Army list

Black Legion/Chaos Daemons

1850 on the nose!  I got my display base built too!  I lost one I brought to Adepticon.  Someone borrowed it and then I didn't get it back.  Not a big deal as I could get another one.

Woohoo - it takes up the whole board.  I upped the green glow, added in some rocks, and actually feel this one works a lot better.  Pretty happy with it.  Now I should just get cards made at some point to hand them out.  Local store might let me add some minis to their case with a card etc.  Maybe drums up some local business?  I am always a fan of that haha.  Speaking of that - paint list.

Plastic Dudesmen - Got 2 ideas - will probably try to do b oth
Chaos Knight - Khorne Knight - Almost done today
Possessed Banner Art - want to get it done before I leave for Alamo GT

5 Assault Terminators - Primed

Chris C
Cauldron of Blood - Primed
10 Witch Elves - not primed

Necro Orks - more to come

Old Skool Daemons - need to pull open the box and get started - count them out etc.

More IG/AG coming in.  Will count them out as I get them started

Draigo Display piece - Draigo is done - need to get the Daemonette conversions done - base is done.  This will hopefully get finished before I leave on Friday.

I am sure there are other things - will see what I can bust out before I head out.  Fun times.

I will write up the Alamo GT with the fun list.  I am excited about 7th rumors and hope they continue to kick some ass.  Will see - hell we got two weeks haha.  I spend almost 80 bucks a month on comics so a 100 dollar book isn't the end of the world for me.  Heck the rumors of Orks in the starter set just have my salivating.  I love me some Orks haha.

Ok models and some art.

Khorne Knight - Gladiator.

A Winter Soldier version of  Cypher.

Maybe forum logo - just was messing with shapes.

Techno Viking! Love me that Vikings show!
Red Skull Ork!  Woohoo!

Woot - Week!

Blah - this week I didn't get any art finished.  I drew some stuff - but really it was a weak week for artwork.  I got models done - so that is good - but no arts.  Meh!  Still painting was decent enough - got the Khorne Knight halfway built.  So that is good.  Let's go with paint list then some army list ideas.

Plastic Dudesmen - No work yet
Khorne Knight - Halfway Built
A few emails on art I need to answer plus some model stuff.
I got some logo stuff to do too - but really waiting on all the info for it.  Fun times.
Maybe another logo?
Who knows what else for me.

Back to Flesh tearers.

More Necroorks!
Some art too.

Chris C
Dark Elves!  Doing 10 or so per week if I can.

Old school metal demons - gonna get started this week

Some more random stuff that is coming in to do too.  Woohoo!  More to come!

I am sure it will end up being a lot more interesting as I get more things done.  It just takes a bit to get ramped up.  A buddy let me borrow his Xbox One with TitanFall.  So that will take some time later on this week haha.

I got the idea to paint up this Juggerlord conversion.  I don't know why but I guess I really wanted to play this list below.

Black Legion/Daemons

1850 on the nose.  Looks fun - probably won't work but would be a hell of a lot of fun to play right?  Would look cool to goof around with. Should have done this for the Alamo - but too late sent in a list haha.

Ok - models to look at and calling it a night.

This finishes off the troops - top guys are immortals and bottom are warriors.  

Painted this today while watching Hannibal and Parks and Recreation.

Finishes off a small Tau order.  These were fun as the suits are neat to paint.

Missed going to a local, 2000 pt no holds barred event.  Kind of glad I just took the day to work on minis.  It helped knock out a ton of the NecroOrks and just keep ahead of the game.  Yay consistent work!  

I'll try out that list this Thursday for fun.  It just seems ok so why not try it right?  Woohoo - fun games.  I have hopes for 6.5 to fix stuff and let fun armies work again.  A boy can dream right?
