Goatboy's Sunday before we begin the work week.



Woohoo - started to ramp up as I got back from Adepticon.  My voice was shot for a few days.  Beyond that I am just a bit beat haha.  I have a lot of work to do so hopefully I can knock out more this week.  I got some more commission stuff in, some thoughts on if I want to do more "writing" and as usual more art.  Woohoo!

Quick Paint/Do list

Played a game today.  Went for Funsies.

CSM+Daemons

HQ: Chaos Lord, MoK, Juggernaut, Axe of Blind Fury, Gift of Mutation, Sigil of Corruption
HQ: Bel'Akor
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
Troops: Cultists X 10
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake
FA: Chaos Spawn X 5

HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut of Khorne, Greater Gift, Lesser Gift
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
FA: Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 10

Fortification: Vengeance Weapon's Battery X 2, Quad Lascannons X 2

1850 on the nose - I wanted to test some things for the upcoming Alamo GT tournament in San Antonio.  It is a more laid back event so I went with stuff all over the place.  If the Vengeance batteries should themselves to be good - might run Spawn bomb haha.

Report from the game.

He got a little aggressive so I was able to jump out, blow up a transport and cause issues in his middle.  Called it quick cuz he was about to be out of troops.  Things I learned.

Vengeance batteries - the shit with Quad Lascannons.  Playing Knights and they allowed updated Fortifications from Stronghold? Take these guys.  Big must!
Don't need 2 dragons - one can work.
The Khorne Lord on a Jugger who gets the 2+ armor save mutation is baller.
Bel'akor in these style lists is probably too good as he gives you answers to everything.

So most likely will do some changes to the list to make it more enjoyable.  Not sure what yet - but will post those ideas.

Now stuff you care about - Models and art.
The NecOrks begin.


2 More broadsides to go.


Get these guys done and out of da house!


Frontline Art - woot! 4 more to go. They use these for Batreps.

Goatboy's Tuesday



Won't have much to show this week - being gone for a lot of it obviously.  Let's get in some rants first.

1. Postal Service - 3 Knights that were supposed to get to a Client on Monday didn't get there till Wednesday night.  They were damaged but repairable.  Makes me mad cuz he needed them for Adepticon.  Still he was happy with them and will probably add more guard to the army :).  Also another item going to Canada has just left customs there after more then 2 weeks?  Meh!

2. Tournament 40k - Man events need more LOS terrain, do something about these lists, and I don't know what else.  I think Battle Bros is going to be the first thing dropped then maybe something about rerollable saves.  Will see.

3. Losing your voice sucks.

Ok basic rants - just wanted to get annoyances off my chest.  Let's write up a paint list for my week and go from there.  I also need to find someone locally good at repairing house stuff.  Meh!

Me
Plastic Dudesmen - Idea gotten, need to draw it.  Combo off of Ben Mohile, Alicia, and Wyatt.  Probably others but it is funny.  Hopefully I can draw it.
Article - kind of a shout out to TO's to hopefully do something - will see
Slaanesh Knight Titan - Starting my first personal Titan.  I know someone else was thinking of asking me to chaos some Titans up so I figured I would start on my corrupted Househould of Flesh.  Think of bodies embedded in the legs and all kinds of fun stuff.
Figure out Knight Lists
Start on Frontline Art - got one drawn - need 7 more.
Work on Artist interview questions for future articles.

Jens
Piranaha #1 - Build & Paint
Piranaha #2 - Build & Paint
Got 2 Broadsides to do too - but probably next week.

Luis
10 Ultramarine Tacticals - Build & Paint
10 Assault Marines - Build & Paint
3 Centurions - Build & Paint

Alexey
Draigo customer build - need to start getting it together and planning it out

Anthony
Customer Daemon Restore/Paint
10 Plague Bearers

Captain America 2: Winter Solider was awesome.  People should see it.  So much better then I expected and I can't wait for Guardians of the Galaxy.

Sorry no battle reports.  It was kind of lackluster and I don't feel like writing up me being whiney.  Just know some games were good - a lot were boring.  So leave it at that.  Right now I am just focusing on getting the Hobby side done for a bit with some list ideas as usual.  But I have to jet off to work so I can pay my bills.  Dancing doesn't cut it no more haha.

Goatboy's Sunday before Adepticon



I painted a bunch of stuff - Goats mostly but got some commission stuff done.  Man - teams when everyone is busy is hard business.  But meh.

Ok - Champ list for Adepticon

HQ: Lord of Change, Greater X 2, Lesser, Lvl 3
HQ: Keeper of Secrets, Exalted, Greater, Lvl 3
Troops: Daemonettes X 20, Alluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 20, Alluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 20, Alluress
Heavy: DP, MoS,  Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3, Wings, Armor
Heavy: DP, MoS,  Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3, Wings, Armor
Fortification: Aegis Defense Line

I am giving up 10 points for 1840 but don't really care as I never remember to roll for a lesser gift on the one DP.  So screw it.  Should be easy, fun and straight forward.  Just the way I like it haha.

Thought up this list for shits and giggles for Marines.

Clan Raukaan + White Scars

Clan Raukaan
HQ: Chapter Master, Bike, Art Armor, Powerfist, Gorgans Chain, Auspex
HQ: Tech Marine, Bike, Lightning Claw, Auspex
HQ: Tech Marine, Bike, Lightning Claw, Auspex
Troops: Bike Squad X 8, Grav Gun X 2
Troops: Tactical Squad X 10, Grav Gun, Mult-Melta, Rhino
FA: Storm Talon, Skyhammer Missiles
FA: Storm Talon, Skyhammer Missiles

White Scars
HQ: Captain, Bike, Art Armor, Powerfist, The Shield Eternal, Auspex
HQ: Command Squad, Bikes, Storm Shield X 2, Meltabombs X 2, Grav Gun X 4
HQ: Tech Marine, Bike, Lightning Claw, Auspex
Troops: Bike Squad X 5, Grav Gun X 2
Troops: Bike Squad X 5, Grav Gun X 2

Basically - you have the following units.

CR Chapter Master + WS Command Squad
WS Captain + CR Troop Bike Squad + White Scars Tech Marine
WS Bike Squad + CR Tech Marine
WS Bike Squad + CR Tech Marine

So basically you got a ton of Hit and run - 2+ save guys and lots of FNP and other nonsense all over the board? It could work - shit you could do two command squads haha.  Plus it looks goofy as all hell too hehe.

Paint list will be small as I am gone on Wednesday

Me
Plastic Dudesmen - Been doing it for over 3 years - crazy eh?
Article - 5+ years I think?
Maybe some Art for Frontline

That will be it for the week.  When I get back I plan on starting on a Draigo commission and a small Tau order.  I got some Ultramarines coming too.  Fun times fun times.

Ok quick post of models, art and stuffs.

Look for my first Evil knight when I come back.  I am planning on some kind of crazy horned slaanesh thing.

Goat Stalker

Goat storm Talon

Complete Command Squad

30k Cypher

Ultramarines.
Frontline Batch 2 begins.
Shirt art for buddies at Adepticon
More Shirt Art - that might be Reese getting chased down.

Goatboy's Sunday? Monday? What Day?



Man Adepticon is coming.  I did something stupid and bought the wrong date to fly in.  Lucky I was with Southwest so it didn't cost me much to change it.  But man... first mess up in ticket buying in awhile.  I blame getting everything all at once for a few events.  My fault but ugh!  I will be there Wednesday and hopefully Thursday and Friday won't just be Death Star A Rama for me.  Who am I kidding - I will just be playing Thursday hahaha.

Still not sure on what to bring. I have to get my Adepticon Team part done this week.  It will be the Goats so I don't have to do too much.  It won't look completely awesome but parts will be neat.  When I get ready to do my Goat Knights I will look at cleaning up the guys to make an army.  I think the Knights are good - not amazing.  They should all be 25-50 points cheaper but enh.  I just wish we had all the options in there ya know?

Still looking at Knights plus stuff.  You have to be so sure with anti flyer.  It is making me thinking Marines with a Storm Talon and Raven but man - you need to fit what is needed in 730 points.  Look at this basic Marines.

HQ: Librarian
Troops: Tactical Squad X 10, Grav Gun, Heavy Bolter, Combi-Grav, Upgrade to Vet
Troops: Scouts X 10, Sniper Rifles, Camo Cloaks
FA: Storm Talon, TWL Lascannon
Heavy: Storm Raven, TWL Lascannon, TWL Multi-Melta

Tacts ride in the Raven with the Librarian.  Pop out as needed.  The Libbie should take Telepathy for the chance at Psychic Scream.  Knight Part is

Knight Paladin X 2
Knight Errant

It looks good?  Probably what I will test for the most part.  Will see.

Now onto my paint list.

Me
Plastic Dudesmen - Script is in - doodles started
Article written - basically talking about Helbrute Dataslate
Me - Marine bits to get ready for Adepticon - need list again so lots of stuff
Review for Evil Minis - Painted!
Lots of Frontline Art.

Greg
Knight #3 - Done Tonight!

Jens
Bases - need to build and paint
2 Piranaha's - In boxes
2 Broadsides - In boxes
1 Counts as Cypher - Primed for tonight

Don
Revenant - Need to find good instructions - worried as it looks brittle

Luis
More Ultramarines for a gift - waiting on some Bronze arrows.

Alexey
Epic Pose Draigo on cool base - paid for getting ready to get the pieces together to start building then painting after Adepticon.

I got other stuff coming in too so this next month will be a busy one as usual.  I think I just can't stop eh?  I wish I could play Bel'Akor at Adepticon.  Jerks I tell ya!

Man - just don't want to play Fate and die like a boss every game!  So man... makes me just want to play this hot mess.

HQ: Keeper, Exalted, Greater, Lvl 3
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Troops: Daemonettes X 20
Heavy: DP, MoS, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3, Wings, Armor
Heavy: DP, MoS, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3, Wings, Armor
Heavy: DP, MoS, Greater Gift X 2, Lvl 3, Wings, Armor

Screw this all - just get in my van and I don't care.  Plus the army would look cool on the table right? And fly super easy hehe.  I thought of this dumb list too - CSM/Crons

HQ: Typhus
Troops: Zombies X 30
Troops: Zombies X 30
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
FA: Heldrake

HQ: Nemesor
HQ: Obyron
HQ: Royal Court - Necron Lord, Warscythe, Mindshackle, Weave
Troops: Warriors X 5, Night Scythe
Troops: Immortals X 10

Fortification: Aegis Defense Line, Lascannon

This isn't a fun list - but very aggressive with the teleporting Group that has tank hunting Gauss guns.  They should rip apart of things and if Knights are a pain this might be a good option for that.  The Lord is there to cause some Mind Shackle problems and the Warriors plus Night Scythe is just another decent troop to go across the board.  The 3 Drakes are just there to remove things and you need the one Autocannon to help deal with Armor.  It seems decent - you could also make Crons the main and get a crazy group with the Immortals and look to add in Tomb Spyders.  But I don't have those so thus I use this right?  Hehe - I just need to make Nemesor and Obryon to get this working.  Oh and fix one Dragon that is busted.  Hrm...

Ok some models and call it a day.


Evil Chaos Dwarf thingie - I forgot where the model is from - but Greenstuff heavily to get the gaps filled.

This commission is done!

Necron style.


Finish Evil Minis Unit for review - coming soon to BOLS.
The Final Knight.



Logos, banners, etc.  Yay I do arts!

Goatboy's Sunday Fun



Woohoo - been thinking of doing more funsey lists to just enjoy some 40k.  As long as I don't play against too bad of a DB list I should be ok.  I call it - Thursday night fun times.  Most will be straight CSM as I feel if I can win with them I can  do alright.  Plus I can say you just got beat up by a "bad book" haha.  Blah!

Let's get the paint list

Me
Plastic Dudesmen - Tempted to stop doing this before long - I have over 3 years worth of comics and I am just thinking it is time to put that time towards well - something else.  Will see.
Article - in the can
Evil Miniatures Model build - first one done - next 4 built
Space Goats for Adepticon team - need to figure out what I have time to do

Greg S
3rd Knight - coming in the mail
Void Shield generator?

Luis P
Ultramarines for a gift
5 Terminators - Done
10 Tactical - Not done
10 Tactical - Not done
10 Assault Troops - Not done

Jens
2 Piranhas - Not done
2 Broadsides - Not done
Bunch of bases - Not done

Will Whit
4 Spawn - Done
Sorcerer - Done
14 Cultists - Not done - waiting to get primed

Tristen
Big Chaos Dwarf thingie - halfway built

Don
Revenant that does't have instructions - cleaned - need to figure out if I can build it without breaking it.

Caleb
Deposit for Necro Orks in - just need to get the models to start

And then some art maybe on some logos and other stuff too.  Yay!  Fun stuff.  I got things done this weekend so it wasn't a complete bust.

Now let's start with some lists for those interested in that.

Chaos Spawn Bomb 4000!!!
Crimson Slaughter + Chaos Space Marines

CS HQ: Chaos Lord, MoN, Bike, Sigil of Corruption, Daemonheart, Powerfist, Lightning Claw
CS HQ: Sorcerer, Bike, Force Stave, Balestar of Mammon
CSM HQ: Abbaddon
CS Troops: Cultists X 10
CS Troops: Cultists X 10
CS Troops: Cultists X 10
CSM Troops: Cultists X 10
CS FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
CS FA: Chaos Spawn X 5, MoN
CS FA: Heldrake, Baleflamer
CSM FA: Heldrake
CSM Heavy: Obliterators X 3, MoN
Fortification: Aegis Line, Quadgun

Looks goofy as hell.  I didn't want to bring Zombies so figured - heck bring Abbaddon eh?  I guess I could have taken some Chosen but meh - meh.  If the rumored Veteran Rules come out then will see a big change to the army.  Stubbron will help out a lot I would say.

I still think Chaos plus Crons do well enough.  You can figure out some crazy combos there that cover everything you need.  I will write up that list later on in the week as I am crashing out tonight.  So have fun - look at the models and dream of winning games with Chaos Space Marines.
New Sparrow Heldrake!

I like the blue up to pink/purple.

Review Mini

Knight 2 - the Burniator

Terminators for the win!
Some NMM action!

Zoom Zoom!

Creepers coming at you

Wednesday List Ideas?



I got some list ideas so I figured I would plop them out like some kind of turn monger.  TURDS! Blah - will start with where I am at for Adepticon.  I don't expect myself to get to day 2 due to the nature of me not wanting to play Deathstar and most likely people playing Deathstar crap.  Probably go 3-1 as usual and just have to deal with it.  Meh!

They are not allowing Bel'Akor which is total crap.  They will let all this other stuff in but one dataslate is too I guess hard.  Meh!  I blame Reese hehe.  Still will see it all change in the coming months I am sure.  They can't ban Codex: Knights in your Face so that might make people less likely to bring these expensive units.  I will laugh when my fat Chainsword eats a Warlork or two.

Let's start with Daemons and go from there.

Right now basic FMC/I Have it already painted.

HQ: Fateweaver
HQ: DP, MoS, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2
Troops: Daemonettes X 18, Aluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 18, Aluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 18, Aluress
Heavy: DP, MoT, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Exalted Gift, Greater Gift
Heavy: DP, MoT, Wings, Armor, Lvl 3, Exalted Gift, Greater Gift

1841 on the nose.  This is basic - no Fiend tricks plus a ton of troops that can kill the big stuff.  When the Knights come into play we might see big squads of Plague Bearers.  Interesting stuff to think about.

If I don't play this I could throw this out there - playing Ballsy.

HQ: LoC, Lvl 3, Exalted Gift, Greater Gift
HQ: LoC, Lvl 3, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift
Troops: Daemonettes X 20, Aluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 20, Aluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 20, Aluress
FA: Screamers of Tzeentch X 7
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, MoS, Baleful Torrent

I have this painted too. - I could add in 5 fiends instead of the screamers - but think the screamers might be more helpful to get around the board.  Plus it doesn't have Fate so I can be like - Fate is for babies!

Aluress's are there to hopefully help vs the Warpstorm nonsense.

I can run MoS princes too as gun boats but enh...

From this point I am thinking of Knight lists too.  I got another one to do for a client then will see if he sends me another to do.  Then I can think of my own.  I am thinking of playing them for Alamo so will see.  I got some ideas to try and use them.

Basic Knight Start

HQ: Knight Paladin
Troops: Knight Errant X 2
1115 pts - leaves me 735 to use and abuse.  First list was using the Inquisition.

Inquisition

HQ: Coteaz
HQ: Xenos Inquisitor, Rad Grenades, Psychotroke Grenades, Psyker, Servo Skulls X 2
Troops: Warrior Acolytes X 3, Razorback, TWL Ass Cannon, Psybolt
Troops: Warrior Acolytes X 3, Razorback, TWL Ass Cannon, Psybolt
Troops: Death Cult Assassins X 3, Crusaders X 3, Minostrium Priest, LRC, Psybolt, Multi-Melta

Seems basic - has some Anti air potential with all the Str 7 TWL nonsense.  I have a lot of this painted too - and can make the radical Inq army/Mechanicus with this?  It is an idea and seems neat enough with a get away from me punch to the junk.

Space Wolves

HQ: Rune Priest, Terminator Armor, Chooser of the Slain, JaWs, Living Lightning
Elites: Wolf Guard Pack
4 - Wolf Guard, Power Armor, Combi-Melta
1 - Wolf Guard, Terminator Armor, Cyclone ML
Drop pod
Troops: Grey Hunters X 10, Plasma Gun X 2, Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen, Plasma Pistol, Drop Pod
Heavy: Long Fangs X 6, ML X 5, Drop Pod

This one is the "good" one.  It should work - be aggressive and cover the bases I need.  The Anti Air is weak but ML is about the best I can do.  Prescience will help to deal with it and the Term Armor means I can take some flamer crap from Dragons and hopefully survive.

This one is stupid but makes me laugh.

HQ: Wolf Lord, Thunder Wolf, Runic Armor, Saga of the Bear, Storm Shield, Powerfist
HQ: Canis, Fenris Wolves X 2
Troops: Fenris Wolves X 13
Fortification: Vengeance Battery, TWL Lascannon bit

Yeah this needs Stronghold parts to work - but this would be awesome.  2 Knights plus a ton of dogs coming at you bro.  Man... probably drop a dog to maybe up the BS on the Vengeance batteries?  Hehehe - suck it!

Space Marines/Clan Raccoon

HQ: Chapter Master, Art Armor, The Gorgon's Chain, Thunder Hammer, Auspex, Digital Weapons
Troops: Bike Squad X 8, Grav Gun X 2, Combi-Grav, Attack Bike, MM
FA: Storm Talon, Sky Hammer Missiles
Heavy: Hunter

This one is basic, simple, and gets your marines to run around the table top.  I do wonder if you could remove the Storm Talon for some Tech Marines to fix your guys hehe.  Or remove the Hunter.

Meh so yeah these are just ideas for nonsense like I normally do.

Man I wish Chaos Space Marines could ally with the Knights.  I am sure most would just be 3 Knights, DP, Cultists and a Dragon haha.

But ok - that is it for brewing for now.

Goatboy's Sunday



Wife is watching one of her shows before I start to watch True Detective.  If you haven't seen it - this is the last one for this small season and you should watch it.  It is awesome.  Really good.  Haha - I got one Knight painted on Friday and some other stuff to show you.  I will be doing another Knight too and then I will end up having 3 most likely for my Alamo army later in May.  Woohoo!

First - if you are not on my Facebook then you might not have heard - the lovely wife is pregnant with the first Goat Child.  Will be finding out soon what the sex is cuz I hate being surprised by stuff like that.  We got two names picked out - as she gets to name the kiddo if it is a Girl and I get the Boys.

Boy - Thomas Patrick Reidy IV aka Thor
Girl - June Alieen (Something like this ) Reidy

So yeah - exciting times for me.  I will mean less tournaments but that was something I was already planning.  Tournament 40k is a bit rough lately and I really like to go to them to meet friends so... I can look at cutting things out.  I hope we come to a decision for tournaments to help make the armies a bit more diverse.  This Deathstar stuff is annoying.  I bet will see 6-7 Seer Council, 1-3 Beast Stars, 1-2 Marine Stars, and then maybe Ovesa or Centurion star.  Meh... all this Star BS is BS.  I am playing FMC Daemons for now - if I could play Bel'Akor I would but... meh.  Current list after people telling me I should at least play it and if I lose - who cares.

HQ: Fate
HQ: Daemon Prince, MoS, Greater Gift X 2, Psyker Lvl 3, Wings Armor
Troops: Daemonettes X 18, Aluress
Troops: Daemonettes X 18, Aluress
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Greater Gift, Exalted Gift, Psyker Lvl 3, Wings, Armor
Heavy: Daemon Prince, MoT, Greater Gift, Exalted Gift, Psyker Lvl 3, Wings, Armor

Either - I add in 5 Fiends or a Soul Grinder with Baleful Torrent and MoN.  Hrm... Thoughts?  I just don't want to play Tau or Eldar or Marines for now.  I got this nonsense for Alamo maybe.

Knight + Inquisition

IK: Knight Paladin - Warlord
IK: Knight Errant
IK: Knight Errant

HQ: Coteaz
HQ: Xenos Inq, Psyker, Rad Grenades, Servo Skull X 2
Elites: Crusaders X 3, Death Cult X 3, Priest, Meltabomb, LRR, Psybolt, Multi-Melta
Elites: Acolytes X 3, Razorback, Assault Cannon, Psybolt
Elites: Acolytes X 3, Razorback, Assault Cannon, Psybolt

1850 on the nose - going to do a crazy evil Inquisition again.  Screw it - it will look cool haha.

Blah!
