Goatboys... Ah Crap - Wednesday

Sorry for the late post.  I got busy yesterday - wife got in a small wreck so we had to be at the hospital for 4 hrs to make sure the baby was good.  Everything was fine - looks like the car is going to get put in to get fixed and maybe will swap out cars and not be too under.  Will see how it goes.  Going to try to do stuff with it on Friday - as I have the day off (anniversary) and well - it would be nice to get it done.

I'm sad I won't be at Nova this year.  Too close to the kiddo coming out and the wife really wanted me to be home.  So I stay.  I am glad too as this wreck thing could have been bad.  If I did go I would have played some kind of knight thing with summoning or Knight plus something else.  I just enjoy the knights so far and hopefully will get more games.  In fact - my last week was spent trying to get the final Nurgle Knight done for a buddy to borrow for Nova.  Will see how it goes for him - hopefully pretty good.

Let's get my paint list down and then see where we go.

Article - maybe a more idea piece again - or thought piece - will see
Lots of art to do actually - want to see if I can knock out a few pieces this weekend as I have Monday off.
Beyond that - plan some more stuff for my Wolf Armageddon list - so maybe paint a model.

Luis P
Some more Flesh Tearer Marines - probably a batch of 10 more

Tim V
I have 10 more regular marines plus 4 rhinos to paint for this initial first batch - then we got some knights coming in and more biker guys - plus a combo Biker Libbie on bike.

Don S
Some Warmachine stuff

Some CSM stuff to get done by October

Will Whit
More CSM stuff

NecroOrks - the commission started up with a fury this last week - look for some more big stuff coming.  They are looking cool as hell too.

Greg S
I got a LRC to figure out - and some AM/IG stuff to get done so he can get started with his GK again.  Really cleaning them up for the Inquisition

Cryx! I got 10 Mechanithralls built tonight - they will get some paint on them this weekend.  Plus the Weird Cryx horse guys - I have 3 more to build - will see how much I yell at them.

I have this plus house stuff too - we need to get more Baby things and deal with the car.  Yay!  And I need to get someone to finish the stairs for me.  Ugh been a pain in the ass to find someone.

Ok - so onto lists - this is where I am leaning when I get bits in to create my ThunderGoats.  I have some ideas on ways to get it to look right and not be an issue when figuring out what model does what.

Champs Formation that has Elites over Troops etc
HQ: Wolf Priest, Bike, Runic Armor, Meltabomb
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elites: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
FA: Thunder Wolf Cavalry X 5, PF X 2, Wolf Claw X 2, SS X 5

Knight Errant

LoTD Formation
LoTD X 5, Multi-Melta, Meltagun
LoTD X 5, Multi-Melta, Meltagun

This army gives no F's.  It is coming in hard and fast - plus it can get the knight fixed up pretty easily.  The Knight won't be shooting much as he just runs with the bulls/dogs/goats/etc.  The LoTD are there to get Wave Serpents and be annoying in general.  You have to deal with them as they fall down.  I could look at an Assassin too - so it is another idea.  But shit - this list has no casting cuz it don't need it.

Ok - what most people like - models and art.

NecroOrk Destroyer Lord

Some Destroyers

Anni Barge eh?

Its the face that I like.

I magnetized the gun - just in case.

Check out my ass!

It's that over shoulder shot - looking worried out the window as it rains.

More pew pew!

I got some bullets and Jump Pack guys - might be what will see in that Online SM game.
The logo thingie.

Mr. Tyrant!

No one takes his snacks!

Oh crap someone farted!

He just wants to give a sensual back massage.
LVO's Logo for next year.  A shirt and everything will be there too!

Woohoo - Late Monday Post

I painted a crap ton this weekend.  Waiting on getting a new car to get a bunch of stuff for the baby - so I just spent it throwing paint on models.  I caught up and finished some commissions - so all in all a great weekend.  Woohoo.

Beyond that I have changed up some food diet stuff - had a bad doctor review that means I need to remove some things out of the diet.  It is good so far and I am feeling pretty good.  Plus my pants are fitting better - shirts seem to fit better.  And my goatee doesn't look like it is hiding all that chin sausage.  Hah.

I just ordered my bits to recreate some Space Wolf stuff.  It isn't a huge amount of models so it shouldn't take long to get them ready - plus it plays a Knight which sounds fun to me.  I just want to get that character to work - but might have to drop him down to a regular one.  Shit some of those new formations from Champs are strong as hell too for my own army designs.  It does seem to fit into - troops just don't matter that much anymore.  Now if other armies had more formations - sniff daemons please?

Let's go with the paint list real quick and then go from there.

Article - not sure what I will do - might be a kind of - is this fast rules release worth it?  Benefits, bonuses, etc.
Nurgle Imperial Knight - a buddy is borrowing the 3 for the Nova so I need to get it done by this weekend.  I start building it tonight - legs got partway done.
Test Iron Priest.  I plan on going with each "thunder wolf" style unit in Goats to be different.  So all the Iron Priests look one way - all the Wolf Guard/Wolf Lord look one way and finally the actual Thunder Wolves look this one way.   I think it will help make the games easier to play for me and my opponent.
Some art maybes?

More Flesh tearers - looking at another 10 this week

Tim V
10 More Dark Angel guys hopefully

Start building some IG infantry squads

Necrorks start back up again - looking for a unit by next post

Cyrx guys - hopefully get the rest of the undead horse people built - then painted.  Will see.

There are some other small things too - so will see if I feel like doing it.  I got to get some stuff for the babies room done.  I need to find a good local handy man to get stairs fixed (need to be resurfaced - I don't think I can do it).  I need to get my wife's car swapped out to a bigger one.  And shit - not go crazy at work right?  Work was busy today - just all day grind and getting pulled all over the place.

And wife broke her phone so meh - fixing screens sucks!  Meh... but it works better now soooo...  Blah!!!

Gonna try out another Wolf list hopefully this Thursday.  The plan is the same as what I posted - as I just love running around with Thunder Wolves.  They just fit my play style.  Hard, fast, and not giving no shits haha.

Ok - painted stuff...

This finishes off those Wyches or Witches or whatever. Some other DE stuff will come later on.

Herald of Khorne/Chaos Lord/Locus dude - conversions from all kind of bits.

A fun kit to put together actually - lots of weird Empire style - really.  Nothing to gaudy and the idea of a guy screaming at you while driving a tank - sounds awesome.


Dat's a ton of horses.

Changing reds up to PP reds - I like them a lot.

Jump around, jump around, jump up jump up and get down!

Bullets are what's for dinner.
Some arts!

Goatboy's Monday Post

Woohoo! - was a busy weekend.  Looked at a new car - maybe in a few weeks.  We need something bigger for the bambino so thus - 4 doors at least.  Blah!!!  Beyond that I painted a lot too.  Hell I will be painting a ton more too.  Will start with the paint list real quick.

Article for BOLS - maybe Wolves aka Space Goats
Nurgle Knight - need to get him built
Some art maybe too.

NecroOrks - once this fantasy stuff gets knocked out first then I start no it again this weekend

More Cryx stuff - I got some metal horse guys that make me sad to build haha

More Marines - jump back guys

More marines - jump back guys again...

Greg S
Some AM guys too -

2 More Empire Cannons
1 Steamtank

I have 9 more Dark Elf Witches and some spaces and a display tray to paint - should be done by Wednesday at the latest - couldn't prime tonight cuz of some rain :(.

I am sure something else too.  Haha - it never ends right.  Crap you see that new plastic kit from Privateer?  It looks like it might be a good starting point to do some crazy Daemon Princes.  Heck it gives me ideas to do a crazy Master Blaster/Thunder Wolf army thing.  I always like the people that made werewolves for their Thunder Wolves.  It just sounds cool.

Speaking of other conversion ideas - I am thinking about that Necron Overlord on a barge/conversion with a Daemon Virus taking over.  Cables - push the Necron lord forward - remove the drivers - maybe add this crazy piece I have some Privateer press - this dude.

Use the center and cables etc.  Might work.  The Nurgle guy will have tubes out the top - probably some kind of blank face idea I have.  Will see if it fits.  I have the power fist/claw thing built.  I just have to fix up the arm a bit.  Woohoo - will take pics and tweet them as I build it.

Oh man - the Space Goats will come back.  I have Centurions already made for the goats so I could do the comb we see all the time.  Will see.  But meh - here is the initial idea - Knight, plus punch, plus some flyers equals kick ass.

HQ: Wolf Guard Battle Leader, Thunder Wolf, Powerfist, Storm Shield
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Elite: Iron Priest, Thunder Wolf, Cyber Wolves X 4
Troops: Blood Claws X 5, Storm Wolf, Skyhammer
Troops: Blood Claws X 5, Storm Wolf, Skyhammer
FA: Thunder Wolves X 3, Storm Shield X 3

Knight Character Dude 


Seems pretty rough - I got enough attacks to hurt people and 2 flyers to get things.  Plus that super Knight is a pain in the ass too with the run, reroll, and etc.  I would just need to some of the flyers to get this type of army ready.  Seems mean as shit too haha.  I just love the idea of a big wolf punch mixed with some flyers.  Plus it might not be too bad to paint.  Need to find a better way to make Servo Arm guys.

I think the book is ok - just not as interesting as it once was.  I see the same thing happening to the Grey Knights next week.  Who would have thought - all these marines so quickly.  But I guess they want to get all the books out with real pics instead of art.  

Some painted models and a bit of art.

The tentacles are coming

Choking you!

Dancing machines!


Space Lasers!

Is this too much plasma?

Oh wait we have more.

Desert raider

This guy was a pain to put together haha.

Some cartoon art - lots of light!

Friday Post - Busy weekend with Life stuff!

First of all - sorry for the late post.  Life got busy - and I am sure it will get busier.  You will probably see less games and just painted models.  But hey - I love to paint right?

First things - lets give a shout out to someone running what sounds like will be a fun event.  I wish it was in Texas or near Texas as it just seems like a good time.  The Beef and Wing Brawl looks like what I feel events will become in the further.  Less measuring your junk and more trying to have a good time.  You get some food, you get some booze, and you get some games.   What more could you want?

So with that out of the way - lets see.  I ran the local tournament this past Sunday.  I tried a tweaked Maelstrom mission with the following set up.  6 Objectives number 1-6 and place by the players.

1. Control Objective #1 or Destroy Building/Vehicle/MC
2. Control Objective #2 or Destroy a unit via Shooting
3. Control Objective #3 or Destroy a Character
4. Control Objective #4 or issue a Challenge.
5. Control Objective #5 or have a unit in Enemies Deployment Zone
6. Control Objective #6 or Destroy a unit via Assault

Each player rolls a 2d6 and those are the two options they can score during their turn.  Max total points is 10 points.  I think some people thought tabling meant you got all of them but that was not the case.  It was a test and it worked ok.  I think some work needs to be done as sometimes things just got of hand if they were lucky on their 2d6.  Plus fast units were extremely strong.  But hey - its an idea right?

Oh Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome - saw it twice.

Man - I need to get my 3rd knight done (cuz someone is going to borrow them for Nova) so I can play something dumb like this.

Knight Formation
Errant X 2, Paladin

Space Marines
Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-Melta, Meltagun, Combi-Melta
Legion of the Damned X 5, Multi-Melta, Meltagun, Combi-Melta
Scouts X 5
Scouts X 5, Land Speed Storm
Wall of Martyrs

Seems stupid eh?

Paint list woohoo!
