Ascension ut Daemon pius

My ascension to daemon-hood is complete! Ish.

Had another game on saturday.... ooooh the daemons worked nicely. Very very nicely in fact. Ive dumped the soul grinder. Which is a same cause its an awesome model. So now i have 3 daemon princes. Still a draw... bloody contesting tanks. I just dont have anything that can reliably take down the land raiders. Well, i have the DPs but they are used to eat terminators, and plague bikes.

So heres the list, 1800pts.

HoKhorne, unholy might, fury, juggy:130
HoKhorne, unholy might, fury, ironhide:110
HoKhorne, unholy might, fury, ironhide:110
HoTzeentch, MoSorcery, legion, bolt: 95

Flamers x3 + bolt: 105
Flamers x3 + bolt: 105
Bloodcrushers x3: 120

Bloodletters x10 + icon: 185
Bloodletters x10 + icon: 185
Horrors x5: 85
Horrors x5: 85

Daemon Prince, MoT, bolt, gaze, ironhide: 190
Daemon Prince, MoK, unholy might, iron hide: 145
Daemon Prince, MoK, unholy might, iron hide: 145

Now to bump this up to 2000 im tempted by death strike on those that can. But i've not been in a position recently that ive thought, "ooh i wish my DPS and khorne heralds can shoot."

Possible dakka question there i think.

Painting wise, not a lot done. My day off on thursday saw me doing things with Gabriel instead of painting. Well worth it, the little 'un is ace. Need to plan his crimson fists out. I've got his HQs painted though.

Daemons, daemons everywhere and not a drop to drink

Long time no post.

Well everything is bought and built for the big game at the end of august. Still on track for the deadline i think. From what i can tell, i have 3 bloodcrushers, 1 DP, and 20 Bloodletters to do then im done. Blood letters should be fairly quick though. I've got another test game this saturday. Got owned last saturday so lets see if i fare better this week.

I'll write up the 2000 pt list and update at the begining of the week. My resin bases came in from dark art miniatures. Really like the lava set. Going to put all my Khorne on them.

Here is Mr Khorne herald.

3way fun

As much as i love a 3way game, i just never bring the right mix to the table. I left the daemons on the shelf for this one. Im still learning how they work and the way the scenario plays i wasn't exaclty sure how to incorporate them. The Air Cav Guard stood up to the plat. Well between a shooty death eldar load out and a shooty death tau load out I just didnt have enough shooty death on my side. I also made my usual mistake when facing the eldar. No plasma to deal with a rampaging avatar. The tau were pretty much unscathed by both myself and the eldar, they took shots just amazingly good saves. Also the first time ive seen tau win an assault against Dire Avengers, and also lose no warriors. Next time gadget, next time!!

On the daemons front it's progressing really well towards the deadline. I've now bought all the bloodcrushers i need. I'll right up the list properly nearer the time. Painting-wise I finished the second unit of 5 horrors, finished the unit of 6 flamers, finished skulltaker.

Plan for friday is get the soul grinder/blood letters green stuffed(grumble ill fitting plastic) for spraying and painting sat/sun. I'll try to update on Wednesday with some pictures of whats painted so far.... yeah, when i say painted i don't mean based yet. That, i reckon, can come a week before the game. I pretty sure i'm going to make it. I'll have to find out how my mate is getting along with his 2000pt of smurfs.
