Endless Stinger Swarm (2500pt List)

Nick speaking,

I am sure you may remember me posting about The 3k Game I had with my buddy Aceface. It was an epic game with my Necrons taking on his Hive Fleet. We rolled the Relic, which I grabbed with my Wraiths turn one and held on for dear life until the game ended. I got a win, but was probably quite lucky with the mission, if you consider all the nastiness that he had on the table!


Since then, Aceface has been working on a new Tau army, and not only does it look fantastic, he is having a lot of success with his list on the table. Check out the link here if you want to find out more on that. Of course, I am writing this post to let you know that we have another game scheduled, and although I don't know for sure, I am suspecting the Tau to make an appearance. The only things I do know, is that we will play 2500 points and will have a go at the Maelstrom missions.



Ace has seen both my Eldar and Necrons in action, so I suppose it's about time I got out my Nids for him to see. Going up against a very experienced Nid player with my Nids, as he commands a very Strong Tau army doesn't sound too promising to me, so I need to come up with something different to counter both of these disadvantages!

I already know the way Ace likes to play, lots of big nasty units and guns, and that is how he plays his Nids. I have played a few Nidzilla games recently myself, but this time I am going all out swarm. I figure I am not going to win a shooting match against his three Riptides and other nasty guns, so why bother to compete there? Oh no, I am thinking flood the board with as many little bugs as I can and see how he copes!


As we are playing a Maelstrom mission, that will help me too, lots and lots of units to grab points at the start of the game, and from then on to just stay alive until the game ends. Minimum unit sizes will make him waste a lot of his over powered guns on killing just five bugs, so hopefully I will have a chance to survive. I can't go without my three Mawlocs, my favourite Nid unit in both looks and fun, plus they will help add a little distraction as the Swarm advances!


Using the Endless Swarm formation to boost my numbers as I die, this is the final list for the game. It's going to be very interesting and a lot of fun, even if Ace doesn't bring his Tau...

The Year of the Wolf (11)

Nick speaking,

The next unit to be painted in my 13th Company Space Wolves army, also needed a few extra conversions from what I did when I built them, ten years ago. This unit started life off as Storm Claws (Blood Claws) in the Eye of Terror Codex, but I am now thinking that I want to use my out of production Wulven minis as Blood Claws, and make this unit Grey Hunters!


First I took off the Plasma Pistols and magnetised two Melta/Plasma Guns. I also magnetised the Power Fist I had on one of the minis to give me options when I play the unit. I also had to make my own Combi Melta/Plasma Guns for my Wolf Guard Pack Leader as I had no guns left in my bitz box. Here is a closer look at the minis and work I have done, now to get them painted...

Eldar Flyer Conversion Painting Progress #1

Nick speaking,

Painting finally begins on my Eldar Flyer. So far I have base coated the black and Hormagaunt Purple areas, gone over the purple base with Lich Purple and then washed it with Druchii Violet. So far, so good. Now it's time to do the hard work and get the thing highlighted...

1750 Point Nidzilla List

Nick speaking,

I am always thinking about new fun lists to play and surprise my opponents with, so here we go with a Nidzilla themed list. It all came about when I got thinking about my three Mawloc models, they are all magnetised, but so far I have only ever used them as Mawlocs! So, with those thoughts in my head, I went ahead and made a list for three Trygons and lots of other MCs. I was limited to the models I actually own, but with using two detachments and Rippers for troops, I was able to get eight big gribblies into the list...



Nidzilla (v1) 1750pts

Primary Detachment

HQ
1 x Flyrant/Devourers (230)
1 x Flyrant/Devourers (230)

TROOPS
3 x Rippers (36)
3 x Rippers (36)

HEAVY
1 x Trygon Prime (230)
1 x Trygon Prime/Regeneration (260)
1 x Trygon (190)

Secondary Detachment

HQ
1 x Old One Eye (220)

TROOPS
3 x Rippers (36)
3 x Rippers (36)

HEAVY
1 x Carnifex (120)
1 x Carnifex (120)

1744 points

The plan will be to stick the three Trygons at the front with the Fexes behind them and push forward from the off, along with the Flyrants swooping forward on turn one. Basically charge and have fun, leaving the Rippers to reserve for objectives!

Next on the Desk!

Nick speaking,

The turd is back and this time it's going to get painted! Yes, yes, I have had this Eldar flyer conversion project going for quite some time now, but it's time to take a break from the wolves and get my purple paint out again. Painting updates coming soon...

New Necron Flayed One Decurion List!

Nick speaking,

After upgrading my Super Phalanx list to incorporate two Canoptek Harvests, and being very happy with the results. I thought it was time to go back to my Flayed One themed army and give it the Harvest treatment. My previous list did have two harvest formation in it, but at the time I only had six Wraith models. Well, now I have twelve Wraiths, so lets see what we can come up with...


As always with a themed list like this, there will always be a lot of points tied up in the themed side of the army, which in my case is sixty Flayed Ones! Couple that with two Canoptek Harvests, and there really isn't a lot of points left over, even at two thousand points. That's fine though, as it's all part of the fun of the army, and the Harvest formations and Decurion rules fit in so well with this assault based army that the restrictions I have set upon myself will be well worth while.

OK, so to fit in the Flayed Ones and two Harvest formations, I have had to go for some minimum sized units to compensate. That means a basic Overlord for an HQ and the minimum points I can spend on the rest of the Reclamation Legion units I need for the Decurion. That means minimum sized Scarab squads too, but the Wraiths should compensate for that quite nicely...


Pretty happy how this is looking, it has a few weaknesses of course, but I am sure the army will be as fun as it always is to play!

The Year of the Wolf (11) Showcase

Nick speaking,

Finished my 13th Company Wolf Lord, he may stand in as Ragnar Blackmane too, but that gives me a HQ, two troops and thirty Fenrisian Wolves all painted up! Still loads of units to do but at least I can start playing a few fun small games with a painted army!
