Work/Kid/Life has been a Bear



I went on two trips for events that took up some time and just trying to find the time to work on stuff. I still am as is obvious from this post and the plethora of pictures added at at the end.  Plus I keep on writing nonsense on BOLS.  Lets get the paint list out of the way and then onto some thoughts on the events I played and lists I want to try and mess with.  Of course multiple FAQs, Army books, and just sheer desire to not paint certain things keeps me at bay.  Still the new Chaos Dex has me excited.

Paint List
Me
BOLS article - List article in the can already
6 Khorne Berserkers - old build paint I need to finish up
Clean up some Rhinos for said Army - already painted just need to clean up
More Frontline art for LVO Banners
I think more art - need to talk to the guy to get a deposit but work!!!  And kid!! BLargh!!

Greg S
Finish Knight dude!

Another Greg S
Get models to do Primus guys at some point!

Bill
Tau - dirty style and beaten up - right up my alley

Mike
More Sisters to finish up this small update that will probably turn into more sisters

James
GK start!

Luis
Start more Infinity instead of just art!

I am sure there are some other things too - woohoo!

Army thoughts

Right now for CSM - Renegades seem to be really strong.  Huron being able to keep your cheap "Cultists" locked down is pretty dang strong.  I know Iron Warriors can do the same thing too - and having the Exoskeletal Daemon Prince of Slaanesh seems pretty awesome.  You can use a Mark of Slaanesh on Terminators to activate double shot jerks which sounds really good.  Lord so much to work with.  Let's look at some of the shell ideas and what we can do.

I really do like the idea of CSM terms.  Combi-Plasma seems to be good - but wondering if just using a ton of Combi-Bolters to get a cheap drop in, shoot, double shoot if needed, and assault.  Most of the time I want to remove Bubble wraps and in reality I can smite bad things to death if needed.  Blah - and of course I want a Lord of Skulls too.  So much to throw together.

Dumb Daemon Prince Bomb Idea aka lots of bodies
Iron Warriors Battalion
HQ: Sorcerer, Jump Pack, Force Axe
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Mark of Slaanesh, Exoskeletal - Warlord
Elites: Chaos Terminators X 10, Mark of Slaanesh, Power Axe X 10, Combi-Plasma X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10

Daemon Battalion
HQ: The Changling
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Daemon of Nurgle, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Daemon of Nurgle, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter
Troops: Brims X 9, Blue Horror X 1
Troops: Brims X 9, Blue Horror X 1
Troops: Brims X 9, Blue Horror X 1

Daemon Battlion
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Daemon of Tzeentch, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Daemon of Tzeentch, Malefic Talons X 2, Warp Bolter
Troops: Brims X 9, Blue Horror X 1
Troops: Brims X 9, Blue Horror X 1
Troops: Brims X 9, Blue Horror X 1

Of course if they change the Changling this can all switch around.  Who the hell knows.

There is also this dumb thought

Alpha Legion Battalion
HQ: Sorcerer, Jump Pack, Force Axe
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Malefic Talons X 2, Mark of Slaanesh, Warp Bolter
HQ: Exalted Champion, Power Axe
Elites: Chaos Terminators X 10, Mark of Slaanesh, Power Axe X 10, Combi-Plasma
Elites: Khorne Berserkers X 20, Icon of Khorne, Powerfist, Chainaxe X 19
Troops: Cultists X 25
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10

Chaos Daemons Battalion
HQ: The Changling
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Daemon of Nurgle, Malefic Talon X 2, Warp Bolter
HQ: Daemon Prince, Wings, Daemon of Nurgle, Malefic Talon X 2, Warp Bolter
Troops: Brims x 9, Blue Horror x 1
Troops: Brims x 9, Blue Horror x 1
Troops: Brims x 9, Blue Horror x 1

Basically I get 9 Command points - can do a crazy assault with Zerkers and double shooting with Terms to clear out anything if I am going first.  Everything else is pretty much -1 to shoot with Alpha Legion rules and the Changling.  I have some options with the Cultists disappearing too and options to a decent set of Stratagems.  It seems pretty decent.

What I done did while I was gone.



A Trio of Malefic Lords anyone?

Another Daemon Prince to add to my pile

50% more expensive!

Speed paint test - down to 6 colors and a wash...

Speed paint test again.









More LVO stuff

Faction of the Imperium!!!

I am alive


And still working a lot.  Getting sick after a move - plus kid getting sick and real life work going nutty meant I was just busy.  Too buys to throw up a blog post or two.  But I did do a ton of work - which is what this will be mostly about.  I am still working on an army list as I got an event at the end of June that needs a Chaos Army.  ATC has me playing something I normally don't - but that is ok.  I am there for the team and not to please the chaos masters and how I throw damage out.  I will write up a batrep on ATC and BAO for sure.  I am very excited about 8th edition right now so lists are brewing, building, and mentally draining out of my goat addled brain.  Fun times indeed.

Let's get a paint list together

Me
Finish another BOLS article
Review the other 2 FW books
Finish some Frontline art
Do some Blood Bowl art - got it drawn have to build it and color it.
There is some other art that is in the chat works - need to locked it down so I can get it started.
Finish my Khorne Army then look towards this Nurgle idea.

James L
Start the GK army I have in the garage.  I knocked out a commission this weekend so it is time to start something else.

Nick R
More random stuff depending on what he wants - I think it will be Genestealers will see.

Greg
Big FW Knight dude and maybe future 30k stuff

Another Greg
Clean up some Knights and get them ready for 8th and maybe some Primus Marines

Mike K
Sisters of Battle to add to an existing army and some marine stuff

Luis
Start Infinity again as I can only really do one metal model commission at a time.  They are such a butt to keep together heh.

I am sure other stuff too - I am getting back up to speed and feeling more like myself.  It doesn't help that the kid isn't going to be at 7 anymore - more so like 8ish due to the sun still being out.  Fun times with that kid.

Random list thoughts - I got 5 boxes of Pox Walkers so I have to do something with that.  A few floating  Daemon Princes, Typhus, and some FW Walkers and you got an interesting list that will be a pain.  Plus it has all the bits I like - robots, cool stuff, etc.  It has me thinking for sure.  Will work up a list and throw it out next time I write it up - don't have all the books in front of me.  Lord is building a list hard and annoying.

Alright - lets get to some models and art and call it a day.

Oh man Survived the Move



Thus why no posting for a good bit.  Lord moving sucks but I did find a ton of models haha.  I have too much stuff.  I am so ready for 8th with a ton of Ork options and hopefully a fully finished Death Guard army with some 30k bits thrown in.  So exciting eh?

Right now I am pretty stoked on the upcoming Skirmish AOS coming out.  It will get me to finish a small "Khorne" force as I continue into either a Nurgle Warband or even something else.  I like the idea of having 10-15 models, going into a quick game, and having fun.  Will see - but at 10 dollars I am picking up that book.

The room continues to get put together.  Hopefully next update will get a pic as I have some pics up - all the trades put up and even some models shown.  It feels nice to be in a much bigger house.  Woohoo.

Let's get to paint list - hopefully start back up on Painting tonight

Me
Warband stuff if I feel like it
Articles for BOLS
2 Illustrations right now - more probably coming

Greg
Big Knight guy i need to clean and start

Ryan
Clean up some Sisters of Silence and do 2 Rhinos

Nick
More GSC - build more of them - just to get ready for the new edition

Travis
Pull out the Cryx and get them started - this week will be a small bit of paint then build build build

Luis
More Infinity

Lots of stuff to do - gots to make some cash to help with the extra space hehe.  Always working it.

There isn't much to talk about list wise - I am mentally done with 7th so I am just waiting on the information to come out.  So that just leaves me some AOS stuff.  The idea of a full crusher army has me thinking of doing it.  It doesn't help I found all my old crushers that I won't use as they are all metal.  I like to do new stuff and if I decide to do this I need to do it up right.

AOS - Khorne - Bloodbound Allegiance
Brass Stampede
Khorne Lord on Juggernaut, Violent Urgency, Talisman of Burning Blood
Skull Crushers X 3, Banner, Musician - 7 units

Gore Pilgrims
Bloodsecrator
Slaughter Priests X 2
10 Blood Reavers
5 Blood Warriors

Bloodstoker

That seems fun - lots of Juggers, some bodies to run behind and portal action to get work.  If I get the double turn I should hurt people pretty good hehe.  I doubt I will find time to paint it - maybe do it as a slow build as I get more and more pieces during my travels,  trades, etc.

Alright - lets look at some models and artwork and call it a day.
