Showcase: Evil Sunz warbikes w/GorkaMorka banners

after many many months I have finally finished this unit!

I absolutely love how they came out.  I plan on getting another unit someday, but for now these will replace one of the units I already have.

Not much else to say,  I would love to get the Evil Sunz back on the table but I need to re-base both units of boys to do so.  Maybe a package of 100 32mm bases is in my future.

Trying out some freebooterz lootas



I am going to try replacing a couple buggies with lootas in my freebootaz list.  I decided on the Shokkumps had to go.  This might move around after some playing.

Sure, Lootas are usually bad moons to use Showin' Off, but I want to see what happens when lootas hit on 4+

One more revision to the Freebooterz list


As I was going back over my previous battles, I realized the one unit of boys really don't do a whole lot.  They purpose of them is to sit back and wait until the shooting has softened everything up.  But just one unit unsupported really doesn't do much.

But one thing I do need is more command points. That means another Battalion and 3 more troops choices.

That's 30 grots at 90pts.  Carefully going over my list the only things I could drop would be either half the boys or the traktor cannons.  I could possibly drop the biker boss but I do need to maintain 4 HQ choices.  Maybe someday I'll buy and 2nd SAG ~~

But enough blabber, here is the new list. 

Battalion Detachment
Kulture: Freebooterz
HQ: Big Mek on Bike, KFF, KMB, Big Choppa
HQ: Warboss on bike, PK, Da Killa KlawTroops: 15 Boys, Tankbusta bomb, Nob w/BC

Dakkajet 6x supashootas
Wazbomb Blastajet, KFF, Wazbomb mega kannons, smasha gun

1998 pts, 104 PL, 14(-2) CP

I still have the small unit of boys to jump and assault, but now I also have more units of grots for both grot shield and jumping on to objectives (which was VERY effective late game).

But mainly losing a bit of CC power for a 50% jump in CP is a pretty good trade off IMO.

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!
