Upgrades to Evil Sunz Battlewagon


Finished the 'ard case, killkannon and defrolla for the Evil Sunz Battlewagon.

Amazing to me how much different the model is with everything on it.

Next list evolution: more Evil Sunz.


So instead of throwing everything out and starting with something completely new, I've decided to make a few changes at a time for a while. There is no end to ideas though, there is so much stuff in the codex that no one list or strategy stands out. I will be playing new and different lists for years!  Heck even the same list with different kultures will pay differently!

Anyway for now I'm keeping the Dakkjets.  And now I've decided to add Tracktor cannons, see if they are as broken as everyone claims.




Still sticking with Evil Sunz, I can't get over how fast they are.  Adding some grots for Grot Shield, keeping the one big unit alive just that much longer.

Showcase: Looted Land Raider Evil Sunz Big Trakk

it took awhile due to how much I've been working lately but It's finally done.

Counts as Big Trakk with supaskorcha. It's glorious!

First list with new Ork codex!



I started by modifying the Evil Sunz list I had been playing mainly because it looks cool and the models were already in my case to take to game night ;)

First broken thing I had to try was Bad Moons Dakkajets.  And not just 1, or 2, but 3 in a flyer detachment. 

And I added a 2nd unit of Tankbustas.   I don't think I need the battlewagon but at the reduced cost why not?

Ruggut's Roughnecks: 40k Ork Kill Team

Everyone fights, no one quits!


My FLGS finally started the Kill Team organized play and of course I brought out my Kromlech Grot Warlord to lead my team.  That plus a Grot commander is the cheesiest play ever!

Kill Team Ruggut's Roughnecks

Leader:
Grot

Specialists:
Loota Spanner, KMB (comms)
Kommando Nob, PK (combat)
Boss Nob, BC, kombi-skorcha (demo)

Fire team gitz:
Grot
Grot

Fire team Shhh!
Kommando
Kommando
Kommando

Fire team Blasta!
Loota
Loota

So far the team is 2-2 and only lost one guy who had to get replaced.  Both losses were to mission rules and not getting killed so I'm pretty happy about that.  Team has yet to break!

Showcase: Hellblasters

While very impatiently waiting for something to happen in #orktober, I finished my Hellblasters.

working on the primaris apothecary next.

I might just get my Dark Angels finished before the codex after all...

Dark Angels update: hellblasters, ancient.


Can't believe it's been a month since I posted here. I mainly use twitter for updates but will try to post more.  For now, this is my completed Primaris Ancient. 


And the first set of Hellblasters.  Just 7 Dark Angels models left to paint now, 5 more of these, an apothecary and the Darktalon. 

But next I want to finish my Evil Sunz.

Evil Sunz Surprise!

I've been going over what units to get to finish a 2000pt Evil Sunz list. Well, while I was moving stuff around last night I found I had painted 3 of my Kans as evil sunz, putting me over the top! Yay!



So here is the complete 2000pt (ish) Evil Sunz list:

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
Flyer: Blitza-bommer

Heavy: 5 Lootas
Heavy: Battlewagon, defrolla, big shoota
Heavy: 3 Kans, rokkets

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

2034pts, 127PL

So now that I've crossed the 2k barrier it motivates me to finish the last truck.

Showcase: Sammael on Sableclaw; Casual Dark Angels list

Finally all done.  Pictured with the Talonmaster wingman.




These guys are the cornerstone of a decent Ravenwing detachment, with re-rolls and lots of shots per model. 

Next weekend I have a casual event, and I toned down my DA list a bit to be more balanced to play stuff I wouldn't normally play.

Battalion Detachment
HQ: Azrael  (180)
HQ: Primaris Lt (78)
HQ: Sammael on Sableclaw (216)

Troops: 5 Intercessors (90)
Troops: 5 Tactical, Missile Launcher (90)
Troops: 5 Tactical, plasmagun, combi-plasma (93)

Elite: 5 Deathwing Terminators, Assault cannon (212)

Heavy: 5 Devastators, 3x Lascannon (140)

Outrider Detachment

Elite: Ravenwing Apothecary (92)

1996 pts, 10 command points, 109PL

First Kill Team

So after pouring over the Kill Team rules, I think I've come up with a good starting point.


Boss Nob - Big Choppa, Kombi-Skorcha (Demolitions specialist)
Kommando Nob, PK (combat specialist)
Kommando x3
Loota x2
Loota Spanner, KMB (Comms specialist)
Grot x4 (one of which is leader)


Notes:
-Having a nob as leader sounds like a bad idea, because you will want them up front and in the enemy's face. Not worth losing the extra command point
-Grots are there for grot shield.
-Comms spec is going to be very important to orks, with the tactic to get the -1 to nerve tests, and giving a loota +1 to hit
-Kombi-skorcha with demo will almost always wound on 2+
-I don't see needing heavy spec anywhere.

I have yet to play but hopefully soon!

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.

Showcase: Ravenwing Darkshroud

Nice thing about painting Ravenwing is it's mostly black. Didn't take long to finish up the Darkshroud. I especially like the blue and gold window, really stands out in the overall Ravenwing pallet. I left the relic separate for transport, but I'm worried about how easy the heavy bolter will come off.  We'll see.




It will be on the table this week for sure. I dropped the razorback - which I was already planning on doing - and a regular bike to make room for it in the list. Overall it didn't change much.

Next project up: Darkshroud

Now that I've finished my bunkers, and am at a very good spot with my Tau, time to do some Dark Angels.

I was able to pick up a Darkshroud after being out of stock for months. I should note it was in stock for exactly 6 days before it's no longer available again.


There are a lot of things I need to decide on how to paint, but I plan on getting this done shortly and give it a try on the table.  Can't wait!!

Showcase: Kromlech Orc Dakka Bunkers

Very happy with these kits. Not only are they cheaper than the official GW model, but were very easy to put together, look great and are perfect for keeping stuff alive.

 
 
 

These might even end up in a battle report soon. Will be almost strange playing Orks again.
