Woohoo - Monday!

I painted a ton of models this weekend at Wargames/Texas/Bols/Etc con.  Look for some new models going into the for sale section later on this week.  I will do a post about it.  Look for some CSM stuff - Cypher, and some other single model stuff if you are interested.  Fun times indeed.

The new Ork book came out - have to think what kind of Warbuggie I can convert.  It is a pain in the butt as I think I need 10 :(.  Might get some grot tanks and convert up.  Trust me they will be good, out flanking and causing issues.  Man it is an odd book but I think the formations will kick it up a notch when they come out.  For sure.  Heck super Horde is going to be annoying as shit.  200 Orks hitting you turn 2 should do some damage.  Heck the Stompa army is good too.  Crazy stuff.

Look for some lists coming next week.  I have to paint up my Daemon army for ATC.  I got 10 more Furies to do and then figure out if I want more FA options.  Man - Daemon rush is good too.  It can summon a few times and still be good.  That is where the strength is - summoning some Plague Drones and other nonsense.  But it won't finish games so... But oh well.

Current ATC list

Chaos Daemons
Warlord HQ: Herald of Nurgle, Palanquin, Lvl 2, Exalted Reward
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Steed of Slaanesh, Locus of Beguilement, Lvl 2
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Lvl 2

It seems fun - should work out and I got enough casting to be annoying.  I push forward - get involved and push some poo in.  Fun times indeed.

Pointing out that squirrel

Goatboy - Didn't Die

Family has been down so time has been rough.  I started ramping up a bit paint wise so hopefully this next week kicks a ton of ass and I can knock out big portions of people's armies.  I still have a ton left to paint all over - so this will be a rough couple of weeks as I strive to get my ATC army done.  I just need to get a set of Nurglings, Herald of Palanquin, and 20 Furies.  I just hate my life at times haha.

If you read my stuff on BOLS you know I stopped doing Plastic Dudesmen.  I just got tired of investing so much time and really the comments should have just been turned off.  But meh - 170 is more then the jerks that commented could do - so there is that haha.  You can read some of the other ones and chuckle for me.  And to those keeping on doing game related comics like that - have fun!  I think I will invest more of my time doing art I want to do.  So will see.  Paint list and stuff.

Bols Article - Just written on Orks - it is kind of meandering as I won't have a solid feel till I get the book in.
20 Furies of Slaanesh - Need to find 10 more Daemonettes.  I think I have them so will see.  Cool conversion I blame Kenny on.
3 Nurglings - got the box these guys are fun
1 Herald of Nurgle on Palaquin.  I have done one in the past - so will just redo that one.
Ork review stuff for Kromlech.

Rhino - primed and ready to go
Jump Pack guys - need to pull and prime to finish this box of stuff.

Old Skool Khorne Dogs - got 9 ready to base and prime - might do it tonight
More dogs too - and some other random stuff.

More Marines - got 7 Terminators done - need to get more guys done too

Dark Elves - got some spear like guys - got another batch primed

AM stuff to do - will start with some character stuff as it is more fun for me.

Some random D&D figures too that just came in to work on.  3 Guys should be fun - will try to knock them out later on this week.

I hope to get at least most of the week on model painting.  That is my desire.  Will see.  Beyond that I need to get ATC army ready to go.  I am playing some kind of rush thing I have mostly painted up.  It should be fun attacker list as I prey on some of the other armies.  Will see if it works out haha.  Will post the list when I get closer and actually get all the pieces done.

I need to get more Nurglings for other lists and with the baby coming - most likely my spending is shot a bit.  I got the Crib yesterday woohoo.  It should come in a few weeks.  Then I get to build that instead of a model for the weekend.  We painted the Kitchen yesterday.  Next up is some stairs and other things.  Woohoo!

Old Skool!

2 More Rhinos to go

I missed mine - got another converted one that looks goofy hah.


Mo Marines?

A fun one - was originally Plastic Dudesmen #171 but decided to just stop for now.

Unfair poker game eh?

Mad Koala.

Woohoo - Made it on a Monday!

First of all - this weekend I will be at FTW Games for SpikeyCon.  Come out if you are around and give me a shout.  I should have a Daemon army plus feel like testing some new ideas Kenny threw at me today.  I think Daemons have to completely shift and change into the army we sort of thought it was in the beginning.  Will see if it works out.

I will have markers to draw on bags, paper to do art if you want, and well you can give me some crap live.  Art and bag designs start at $25.00 so come say hi and help me buy more random Orks.  I love how blogspot changes Orks to irks if you don't capitalize it haha.  That is how I feel as I look at the amount of plastic crack I have haha.  I might try some live art stuff with a big banner if my back doesn't get too mad at me.

Ok as I am out this week my paint week is rather - lackluster.  So instead let me build up a list of what I want done after I get back.  Hopefully my back will feel better too.  It is kind of up and down but thankfully muscle pain ointment keeps me from crying too much.  I can't complain as my wife is well - dealing with a baby who likes to kick already haha.

Saw the new Tom Cruise movie.  It was a lot of fun and definitely a strong Scifi movie for the summer.  I look at it this way - I paid for 2 tickets plus food and I wasn't pissed at what I spent.  That's how I review movies haha.

Oh... made new Caster cards for those that know - if you are interested email me.

Paint week/weeks/etc

Plastic Dudesmen - Got an idea - will see if I can color it tomorrow - if not it will be a filler week
Article - thinking a Hobby related one talking about the Khorne Knight I did.
I am sure a Morkanaut and maybe some Flash Gitz too
Review some models for Kromlech
Help design a Tattoo
Get the Basic Background logo for an ETC group

Tim V
8 Space Marines - got them based and I need to prime to maybe get done tomorrow.  Will see
5 Terminators - got an idea for the test scheme need to do it when I get back
Probably more Marines

3 More Rhinos - will get them primed next week
Assault Marines to do

Greg S
AM order that will end up starting when I get back

Necro Ork Pylon to finish this one box
3 Spyders to do to to fit in the box
Then I start on the second box to finish this.  Back thrown out killed my drive bad.

I have a small order coming in for some high end reaper stuff - so look for that too.

I am sure some other things will flow in as usual.  Plus my own stuff.  I love to paint.  That is my biggest thing when I talk to people interesting in doing this.  I tell them you have to not get upset painting and spending most of your free time knee deep in plastic.  It is a hard thing to do consistently  and I do it mindlessly as well as write and draw.  I might stop the comic before long as I feel like I should do something - I don't know with more substance art wise.  Will see.  I feel it is coming to an end and I would rather do something else.  Plus I get tired of the jerks online haha.

Big thing did everyone notice in the Daemon FAQ Heralds are not limited to 4 of per HQ choice in the Primary detachment.  Holy crap... this means some nonsense is afoot.

HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Sigil, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3
HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Sigil, Spell Familiar, Lvl 3
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN

HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Lvl 2
HQ: Herald of Slaanesh, Lvl 2
HQ: Herald of Tzeentch, Lvl 3, Disk, Exalted Gift
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
FA: Screamers X 8

Fortification: Vengeance Batteries X 2, Quad Lascannons X 2

1850 - seems decent enough.  I start with 13 WC dice - should be enough to cast Spells.  Heck - this whole Herald thing opens up some nonsense for sure.  Will it be good?  I think speed is going to be the Daemons answer - instead of summoning shit you just need to go get engaged and kill things.  Will see if that works or not.

Heck look at the fast things right now for Daemons.  You got Daemonettes at troops, Fiends or Crushers at Elite, then Screamers/Seekers/Flesh Hounds/Drones/Furies.  Lots of ideas there.  Move fast, engage, and hope for the best.  If you can hit an opponent a bunch of times it might help.

Heck I am thinking 3 Maulers backed by lots of Daemonettes etc might be good too.  You get Shrouding off around them or heck Cursed Earth and you got a bunch of pain in the ass.  You could kill Knights pretty easily with a dual Fiend rush.

Will see what I pack up for this weekend.  Again I am planning on testing more then anything else.  I might bring what you see above you because I have all of that already painted.  I just want to see how it works out and if there is merit in the bits and pieces I try out.  I might need to make a quick caster on a bike haha. Damn my brain chugging along.

Ok some models and a small bit of art.

Some art for a shop etc.
There is a ton more in this batch.  I got another 11 or so waiting to get based and primed for when I get back.

2 More Rhinos - 3 more to go.  Woohoo!

Marines!  Woot - nice scheme that is refreshing.

Sorry for the Late Post - Back Pain sucks butt

It really shits on your productivity.  And I have been busy at work so I am a bit drained.  I need to get this last night of my 3 finished.  The Tzeentch one will take longer and as most of the time I can only take 3 it makes it hard to get the drive to get a 4th haha.

Love the new Ork stuff.  Super sweet things.  Someone pointed out to me about some new Daemon nonsense that sounds right up my ally as I like to play Slaanesh and FMC.  Something to do with  those cool gun DP's hehehe.  Speaking of Daemons - my crazy Grinder with the exploding monster face got dropped by myself.  I can fix it but it makes me sad to look at it.

Ok paint list I hope to get done this week through some aching and pains.

Article - Got an Idea - will see
Plastic Dudesmen - Need to redraw it - but I like it
Nurgle Knight - Want to try and get it done before I leave next week for Spikey Con
Logo Art - Drawn need to scan and color
Logo Art - Dragon for team then we get team member stuff

Dark Elf stuff

Pink Horrors X 13 - Done
Chaos Hounds X something - not done - need to rebuild and get on bases

Evil Hive Tyrant of Chaos - Done!

Chapter Master Build - Done!

New Commission - Marines - gonna pull out some this weekend I hope

AM stuff - waiting to get the style/design/start etc

NecroOrk Monolith - Done!
NecroOrk Pylon - not done - will be done this weekend and first box is done.

2 More Rhinos
Assault Troopers

I got 4 games in of 7th.  Don't think the summoning thing is going to be as big as people think it is.  Eldar is still probably too good and that is the issue.  Got some ideas to hopefully fix the psychic phase.  I plan on talking about it but here are the initial thoughts.

1. Limit WC dice - make a total limit and that is all you can do.  You can have more casters but you only get so many etc.  It kind of bones Daemons but really the game goes into who goes after the big bad ass spell (Invisiblity) and if you can stop it.  There is some Sanctuary issues as well - but really the big thing is trying to stop Fortune or Invisibility.  Those are the two big spells.

2. Limit how much a caster can use in a spell.  +1 or +2 over their level.  That would mean more spells are cast etc - but you have a chance to stop the big spell.  Spells would become more of a bonus and if you might get something cool off.  Most armies would move away from that or just see it as extra bonuses.  The armies that have psychics always involved will stay the same - Nids, Daemons, etc.

3. Make denies on Blessings follow the bonus's you get when you are targeted.  The thoughts are +1 for caster or the Admantium Will and maybe a +1 for a higher caster level.  I think just +1 to make it a 5+ is probably correct but will see.  I think it will help versus the smaller casts but maybe not the bigger ones.  I see people just throwing more dice so it will lessen the overall casting level.   The armies without casters will still suffer but maybe they have a chance.

Current Army thoughts - I am just waiting on Orks to really go apeshit but hey - I still thinking of Chaos stuff.  It never ends Chaos Rules ALL!!

Black Legion
HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Sigil of Corruption, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar, Last Memory
HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Sigil of Corruption, Lvl 3, Spell Familiar
Troops: CSM X 5, Meltagun, Rhino, Combi-Melta, Dirge Caster
Troops: CSM X 5, Plasmagun, Rhino, Combi-Plasma, Dirge Caster
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Heavy: Maulerfiend, Lasher Tendrils
Fortification: Vengeance Battery X 2, Quad Lascannon X 2

1850 and looks goofy - Go for Telepathy to get Invis and Shrouding - those Maulerfiends will run around and punch things pretty strong - shrouding will help a lot.  Hrm... might need to build up those Maulerfiends and Slaughter Brute.  Hehe.

Old Skool Horrors! It's like they are at a Concert!

EnControl (sp?) commissioned me to make a Chaos Tyrant to match his army.

Hive Tyrant, Necron Bits, Forge Fiend Bits, and Smoke Launchers.

Oh yeah and Green Stuff.  Thanks Tentacle Maker!

More Tanks.  A few more rhinos coming.

Chapter Master on Bike with Shield Eternal and Thunder Hammer.
