Things You Don't Tell GMort

With Christmas looming most people in the hobby community are gearing up for new toys especially those at our FLGS as many are beginning their preparations for October GT (yes we're incredibly well prepared). Normally I resent all these people as my family had a "no 40K for Christmas" policy, this year no more!

So my list to Santa (I live with two children, he still exists in our house) consisted of a lot of ... well the army I intend to take to said ToS.

Having sat patiently for a while as the band waggon emptied and the models stayed pretty my plan for ToS is Dark Eldar. My list idea is simple, what models do I like? What can I paint up well? This goes against what we agreed as a group but I think every one in our group would agree that I'm the least competitive player in the group.  So as it stands my rough list is this;

150 - Sliscus
81 - Kabalite Warriors
70 - Raider + Flicker Field

115 - 10 Kabalite Warriors + Sybarite + Splinter Cannon + Shredder
70 - Raider + Flicker Field

235 - 10 Incubi + Klaivex
70 - Raider + Flicker Field

95 - Archon + Webway Portal
65 - Venom + Splinter Cannon

160 - 15 Wyhes + Hekatrix

160 - 15 Wyhes + Hekatrix
172 - 6 Reavers + Arena Champion + 2 x Blaster

155 - Void Raven + Flicker Field

Total - 1498

(1750 Option)

250 - 10 Harlequins + Troupe Master + Shadow Seer + 2 x Fusion Pistol

Basic idea is Sliscus boosts basic troops (and reavers I think...) then Archon jets forward (or drops) with the other transports and jumps out to throw the portal, wyches and harls jump through. Not the most competitive army but should be fun.

Not a lot to go on but I'm hoping to do a few testers over the Xmas break, mainly to break up painting guard, which is so dull after the first one.

This is my xmas aim

A Drunk And Sexy Cactus

So the list of "The Cactus" (I have no idea, but its on his team shirt)

Its a solid enough dual wing list that I think will work well with the sallies but we'll have to see. 

Yeah thats right google has an image for a drunk sexy cactus
Belial with eitherlightning claws or thunder hammer and storm shield = 130
Deathwing squad with apothecary, company standard, cyclone missile launcher and chainfist= 305
Deathwing squad with cyclone missile launcher and chainfist = 250
Ravenwing attacksquadron (3 fearless bikers with teleport homers) with two meltaguns; attack bike with multi-melta (also fearless and comes with a teleport homer) = 190
875 points, 15 models, 3 scoring units
Not too much to say until we start play testing over Xmas

Nobody Tosses a Dwarf

So it seems my scheduled posts failed, however I have returned from America to a V short period of painting time to get my guard done.

Here is The Dwarfs army list.

Vulkan He’stan = 190pts
Tactical Squad (10 man) with Missile Launcher, Flamer and Power Weapon = 185
Scout Squad (5 man) with Combi-Melta, P.Fist, T.Homer = 125
Sternguard Veterans (6 man) with Melta Guns x2, Power Fist = 195
    Drop Pod = 35
Land Speeder Storm with Heavy Flamer = 60
Predator with Auto Cannon with Heavy Bolter Sponsons = 85
875 points

The list is a variation on the Sallies list I painted (mostly) and sold to him and is being combined with a death wing contingent. We've yet to test it out but I'm hoping that we can play test it against A.D.s list and mine if I lend The Dwarf some of my Deathwing (just need to find which of the 100 he wants to use.)

Next Time; A Drunk And Sexy Cactus
