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

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

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
