Showcase: Evil Sunz Big Mek on Jetbike w/kff

I would call this a side project. Realizing I needed a 2nd HQ choice to field a battalion, I went with the obvious of a Mek on bike w/kff.  But going through my bits I found a big inspiration: Left over engine bits from a Stormhawk.

Didn't take long to build, and not long to paint but I could not be happier with the outcome. It's just about my favorite model other than the Valkyrie battlewagon.

So now I can actually field an Evil Sunz only army!  Sure it does not mean anything yet, but we're getting there!

This is what I have:

Battalion detachment
HQ: Zadsnark
HQ: Big Mek on bike, kff, big choppa, Relic.

Troops: 12 boys, nob w/pk
Troops: 12 boys, nob w/pl
Troops: 12 boys, nob w/BC
Troops: 30 shoota boys, 3 rokkits, nob w/BC

Elite: Mek, Killsaw, grot oiler
Elite: Tankbustas, nob, 2 bomb squigs

Flyer: wazbom blastajet, WMK, kff *unpainted
Flyer: Blitza-bommer

Heavy: 5 Lootas

Dedicated: Trukk, big shoota
Dedicated: Trukk, big shoota
Dedicated: Trukk, big shoota
Dedicated: Trukk, big shoota *unpainted

That currently sits at 1659 pts

I have a used Battlewagon I may re-purpose for Evil Sunz, to hold the lootas.

Project Evil Sunz continues: Loota showcase.

Not much to say here, finished the lootas. that means I've completed all the first wave of models for Project Evil Sunz: 10 tankbustas, trukk, 4 extra boys, mek and 5 lootas. 

They go fairly fast, so it hasn't taken much time to get everything complete.

I also needed a 2nd HQ choice to field a battalion.  Plus the other trukk.   More building!!!

Showcase: Evil Sunz Tankbustas

Project Evil Sunz is moving along quickly, with the Trukk and tankbustas done.  I am already diving into the Lootas and then I need to paint the Blastajet.

I am still trying to figure out what to do with my last Trukk kit.  But that will be Evil Sunz as well.

That's it for now, they look great piling out of their Trukk ready to shoot up some armor!

Showcase: Evil Sunz Trukk and Grot gunner Warlord

I've been making a lot of progress and quickly this week. I wanted to do the Trukk first because it's just that awesome of a model.  didn't actually take all that long.  very rusty exhaust, lots of pigments and Typhus Corrosion, and flames!!

Plus the Grot gunner warlord from Kromlech is done, ready to lead - from the back!

Rerolls and 4++ for everyone!

This is going to be my final DA list for a while, until I get the Hellblasters and Apothecary done. When I do, I'll have to completely start from scratch.

Battalion Detachment
HQ: Azrael
HQ: Primaris Lieutenant, power sword
HQ: Sammael on Sableclaw

Troop: 5x Tacticals, Missile Launcher
Troop: 5x Tacticals, plasma, combi-plasma
Troop: 5x Intercessors

Heavy: 5x Devastators, 3x Lascannon
Heavy: 5x Devastators, 3x Lascannon

Outrider Detachment
HQ: Talonmaster, Havenfall blade

Fast: 5x Black Knights
Fast: 5x Black Knights
Fast: 4x Ravenwing Bikes, 2x plasma, chainswords
Fast: Ravenwing Darkshroud

Elite: Ravenwing Apothecary

1998pts, 109 PL, 10 Command points

Changing Sammy from Corvex to Sableclaw give me a serious increase in firepower but I can no longer heal him with the Apothecary. 

I really like this list a lot. It may not always win but my gosh it has some serious firepower. Plus Sammy and the Talonmaster both hit pretty hard in close combat in clean up action.

Project Evil Sunz

I've been doing a lot of building this last week on my Evil Sunz Army/detachment. It's a project I want simply because I like how the Evil Sunz paint scheme looks, so I'd like to eventually have a whole army (or at least a battalion) of these guys. Plus with the codex at least at the announced stage, I would like to think different detachments of different clans will be a thing.

So far I have 1 trukk, 2 units of boyz and the blasta bommer.  Oh, and Zadsnark. 

I am adding a unit of Tankbustas (because I need a 3rd anyway), 5 lootas, a mek w/killsaw, 2 more Trukks and a Wazbom Blastajet. For now. I still need more HQ's though.

The conundrom of the Darkshroud

I had my first game with the Darkshround and it's everything I could have hoped for. Against Tau it was nice making her use markerlights just to hit on 4+ again.

The problem I have is with my list. I have 2 distinct parts. A firebase powered by Azrael, and a mobile Ravenwing force powered by Samael.

The conundrum comes at wanting to keep everything under the Darkshroud. It just isn't possible. I like to advance the Ravenwing so they get the Jink save, and then use Speed of the Raven to be fully effective. 

The worst option is to have 2 darkshrouds.  They are far too expensive for that.  The 2nd option is to forgo the firebase and make a more mobile in general.  I think pure Ravenwing won't work but having Azrael run with Hellblasters instead of static with lascannons.  But lascannons sure make up for being able to use Weapons from the Dark Age only once.

The last option is just to keep the Darkshroud where it is needed the most. Against heavy targets keeping the lascannons under protection and keeping it with the Ravenwing when needed - but avoiding trying to do both.
