Showcase: More Meganobz

Finished up the last box of Meganobz. I have built and painted 4 boxes of these guys to be able to run Ghazzy's Bullyboz.

Unlike the Bad Moon unit which is set, the other 7 guys are magnetized. 

So that's it for now, more great content coming!

Return to shooty Orks?

My league this month is lower points, only 1650. I wanted to try and see if shooty Orks can be a thing under the new book and 7th. Since the new book came out I've been moving more and more to close combat and speed builds with less overall shooting. 

I built a list of nothing but shooting units..and of course the lucky stick. Never leave home without it.

Ork Horde Detachment
HQ: Warboss: pk, bp, lucky stuck, 'eavy armor
HQ: Painboy
HQ: Painboy
HQ: Mek

Troop: 30 'ard shootaboyz, 3 rokkets, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 30 'ard shootaboyz, 3 rokkets, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 10 grots

Elite: 10 tankbustas

Heavy: 15 lootas
Heavy: 3 KMK, runts
Heavy: 5 Lobba, runts

I would have gone with 30 lootas, but decided on more mek guns instead.  The tankbustas make up for the lack of a 2nd unit of lootas.

Overall this is a lot of fun. The combination of the vast amount of shooting with the still formidable CC capabilities of the standard Ork boy makes this flexible and effective..but slow.  Depending on the type of shooting, there may not be enough bodies to get across the table..

Plastic Painboy on bike conversion.

This model wasn't made to fit on a bike, and I had to hack off the legs and apron to get it to fit.

I still need to do some greenstuff work but it fits and looks great.

I turned the right arm a bit to clear the guns, and the rest of the model is untouched.

30 Warbikes. All with FNP.  *evil laugh*

IDICBeer's Terrain Square Competition build complete.

I've been working on stuff, just have not been posting much about it.

I painted up a pair of Iron Priests on Thunderwolves and an Imperial Fists Librarian on bike for commission, but didn't take any pics.

I've also picked up 6 more Meganobz and been working on those.

Anyway, I've finished building a pair of terrain pieces for IDICBeer's competition this year.

Water tower and pumping station.  

Storage shed with crow's nets.

I have about 3 weeks to finish these and only took a few days to build.  Primer and paint soon.

Anyway I promise not to neglect the blog so much.

LVO/BAO style list, or how to attack your local meta.

I have a ITC tournament coming up in May, and I finally found an Ork list I think can take on my local meta.

This isn't an all-comers list, but an anti-fucking-Knight list.  There are a lot more Knights around then just about anything else.

I have some work to do, mainly I still need 7 Meganobz but I think it will work for almost everything. I'll have trouble against multiple Helldrakes.

Combined Arms Detachment
Zhadsnark 'Da Rippa'
Painboy, bike

15 Warbikes, Nob w/pk&BP
15 Warbikes, Nob w/pk&BP

 Ghazzy's BullyBoyz
5 Meganobz, 1x Killsaws
Battlewagon, ram, Kannon
5 Meganobz, 1x Killsaws
Battlewagon, ram, Kannon
5 Meganobz, 1x Killsaws
Battlewagon, ram, Kannon
1850 Exactly.

No, it's not a lot of models. No, it's not exactly what I want to play.  But it is alot of survivability, speed and hitting power.   I did pretty well in my last attempt with meganobz and boys, but I also had lootas and tracktor cannons.  I might have problems with multiple Dreadknights with the Ap4 flamer, but against knight titans I should do very well.  rock, paper, scissors of 40k..

Showcase: Nurgle Chaos Lord on bike.

As you may have noticed, I've done a lot of work on my Chaos this month. That's because I really want to get these guys on the table, painted for league play.

Next up is the Lord on bike, which will run with the spawn.

No more One eye open! rolls!

That, and I haven't picked up too much Ork stuff lately. I still want to get some meganobz but the shipping crap has made it hard to get stuff lately.

Also, I was able to get the last few Blood Angels models I needed in trades, so I got the 3 bikes and 2 drop pods for no cash layout.  Not bad!

Anyway, on to the Cultists.
