Updating the Freebooterz list

The biggest problem with my current freebootaz list is the 2 gorkanauts. I only have one and I'm not convinced 2 works. I want some more anti-vehicle hitting power and for that I'm falling back to the new buggies.  Also I have 4 really cool conversions I want to field.

I've had success with Megatrakk Scrapjets in the past, and giving them +1 to hit sounds good.  Even better is the Shokkjump Dragsta's Shockk rifle hitting on 2+

So here is the updated list.

Battalion Detachment
HQ: Big Mek on Bike, KFF, Big Choppa, KMB
HQ: Warboss on Warbike, PK, Da Killa Klaw
HQ: Wierdboy

Troops: 28 Shootas, Nob w/BC, 2x tankbusta bombz
Troops: 10 Grots
Troops: 10 Grots

Air Wing Detachment
Dakkajet, 6x supa-shootas
Dakkajet, 6x supa-shootas
Wazbom BlastaJet, KFF, Mega-Kannons

Spearhead Detachment
Dread Mob (-1cp)
HQ: Big Mek, SAG, Da souped-up Shokka (-1cp)

Heavy: Gorkanaut
Heavy: 2x Mek gunz, smasha gunz
Heavy: 2x Mek gunz, Traktor Kannon

Fast: 2x Megatrakk Scrapjets
Fast: 2x Shokkjump Dragstas

Of course putting the buggies in the Dread Mob so they can use the shoot again stratagem if needed.

That is a lot of heavy-hitting accurate firepower.  The dakkajets and 'naut provide plenty of anti-infantry shooting.  Overall I love this list.

Kustom loota Flashgitz

A long time ago I had an idea to make my own Flashgitz because I simply don't like the pirate aesthetic of the GW kit.  I had no idea what to use for weapons until I decided to use up all the extra heavy bolters I had from all the devastator kits I bought. So I bought a box of Nobz and gave it a shot.

After much trial I finished the first one and loved how it turned out.

But moving on to the 2nd one I realized I could use other weapons as well.  Multi-melta, plasma cannon, etc.  This makes each one much more unique. 

I'm pretty darn happy with how they turned out.  They will be painted up in a simple non-klan specific scheme similar to a majority of my army.

The heads are Steampunk orc heads from Spellcrow.

Showcase: Kromlech Orc Barracks

 Finally getting time for hobby again, and man do I miss it.

Starting with getting the Kromlech terrain done that I've had sitting on the shelf for what..a year? More?  Not sure but it needs to be done.



This was a lot of fun and quite easy to paint.  The Mek Workshop will be a lot harder. Anyway enjoy and back to the brush!

Updating Kult of Speed list


After a couple games with the Kult of Speed I decided I need a bit more firepower.  Also, I want to play with my UFO's.  :)

The two Megatrakk Scrapjets costs 220 points, so I needed to squeeze down a bit.

First thing I did was drop 1 of my units of boys down to 10 models for mob up and jumping first turn.  That saved a bit of points, but no where near enough. Reluctantly I dropped the rokkits in the shoota boyz units to free up the rest of the space.  Oh, and had to drop 1 bike.  :(

So here is the revised list:

Battalion Detachment
Kulture: Evil Sunz
Kult of Speed Specialist Detachment (-1 CP)

HQ: DeffKilla Wartrike, Skargrim's Snazztrike, warlord: Quick, Ladz!
HQ: Big Mek on bike, KFF, (Index)

Troops: 30 shootas, Nob w/PK
Troops: 30 shootas,  Nob w/PK
Troops: 10 shootas, Nob w/PK

Elite: Painboy on Bike

Fast: 12 Warbikes, Nob w/PK
Fast: 11 Warbikes, Nob w/PK

Heavy: 3 smasha gunz

Battalion Detachment
Kulture: Evil Sunz

HQ: Wierdboy
HQ: Zhadsnark

Troops: 10 grots
Troops: 10 grots
Troops: 10 grots

Fast: 2 Megatrakk Scrapjets

1998pts, 104PL


I plan on putting the scrapjets in Teleyporta since they are the only vehicles it does not make sense to leave them vulnerable to shooting.

We'll see how it goes!

Bringing Kult of Speed to the table.

Viligus Defiant brought us specialist detachments including 4 for the Orks.  

The most exiting of these is the Kult of speed, which allows you to make Speed Freeks fearless if they advanced, and move twice their movement value.

The basic idea is to take a unit of Evil Sunz warbikes, move them 32" the firs turn, shoot without penalty, and then charge thanks to a Deffkilla Wartrike (which also picks up a 5++ relic).

Battalion Detachment
Kulture: Evil Sunz
Kult of Speed Specialist Detachment (-1 CP)

HQ: DeffKilla Wartrike, Skargrim's Snazztrike, warlord: Quick, Ladz!
HQ: Big Mek on bike, KFF, big choppa (Index)

Troops: 30 shootas, 3 rokkets, Nob w/BC
Troops: 30 shootas, 3 rokkets, Nob w/BC
Troops: 30 Sluggas, Nob w/PK

Elite: Painboy on Bike

Fast: 12 Warbikes, Nob w/PK
Fast: 12 Warbikes, Nob w/PK

Heavy: 3 smasha gunz

Battalion Detachment
Kulture: Evil Sunz

HQ: Wierdboy
HQ: Zhadsnark

Troops: 11 grots
Troops: 10 grots
Troops: 10 grots

2000pts, 101 PL, 13(-1) command points

The Bad Moon Rises...


It's finally in hand, the Gloomspire Gitz book!  I am so far out of step with AoS it's almost like starting with a new game.

I am reading through the warscrolls and there are so many buffs, spells, interactions, etc I can't possibly understand it all.  It will take a lot of careful study.

And finally I dug out the Orcs & Goblins i have and pulled out the models that are in the tome.




So I have:

Leaders:
Fungoid Cave Shaman
Webspinner Shaman

Battleline:
50 (42) stabbas
35 shootas
20 Spider Riders (if webspinner is General)

Behemoth
2 Mangler Squigs Penguins
Arachnarock Spider w/warparty

No role
3 Loonsmasha Fanatics (5 is minimum)
1 Rockgut Troggoth (3 is minimum)

But that still comes to 2020 points! Dropping down to 40 stabbas puts me at 1920.  Room for another unit easily.

Plus of course will need a loonshrine, as it's zero points!

I think I just need to to put this stuff on the field and roll some dice, see what happens.
