its over.....

Image result for it's over 9000

I have literally been waiting years for this joke! as I just broke past the 9000 mark I'm hoping those that choose to read my blog are having some success with what I'm writing it would be nice to know that some one is benefitting from my random musing n stuff lol

so iv had a game with the legion battle group and want to offer up some musings for handling the other factions!  firstly its not a bad battle group we have lots of tools for taking down any other group that we come up against as long as you play for the long game and be patient!

so lets look at the group

the bolt thrower is the main piece that gives you an unbelievably huge threat range 6" move +10" range and 4" snipe that's 20" on a 24" board so pretty much after you've moved on ull be able to reach most things as long as you can see them!  so use this to threaten key pieces slowly chip away at them whilst pushing them back and cycle between which ever gets closest as they cant heal they will need to engage quickly  

for hordes go for the quickest first so that they are harder to heal

kyrssa will be casting tactical supremacy on the bolt thrower and ashen viel on the neraph  this makes the neraph def16 for shooting and combat (with a -2 on attack rolls if u aren't immune to fire) 

the shredders will flank the neraph as this is the main hitting piece is something runs foreward or charges the neraph the shredders go first and then the neraph finishes it off 

feat turn will be saved for unjamming beasts or getting stuck in to remove he heavies and leave as little as possible on the board for the next turn or to do an assassination run if u can get it off

and that's kinda it really  main thing remember to play the long game make them come to you!

mk3 with cryx!

so iv played a denny1 battle group and 75 point full jack list with

death jack
slayers x3
deathrippers x3

and i missed out on the win bcoz of scenario it needed a unit to make use of the feat turn but with her spells i felt more in control than when i play legion  a few  changes to the list and it will be fully ready

banethralls +ua
necrotechs x3

so the banethralls will give me that much needed unit to swamp a zone and the necrotechs will keep my jacks going for longer

nice n simply !

third legion list

Image result for new girl meme

although for my new girl is should be STABBY!! as its the one and only kyrssa !

so iv played the battle group level and its really gd I like its speed and threat and she can zoom round the board with 3 fury for 6" move as a spell its awesome!

but scaling up her is my 75pt list that ill be aiming to buy

Kryssa, Conviction of Everblight - WB: +31...
- Succubus - PC: 4
- Typhon - PC: 24 (Battlegroup Points Used: 24)
- Seraph - PC: 14 (Battlegroup Points Used: 7)
- Neraph - PC: 12
- Neraph - PC: 12
Strider Deathstalker - PC: 4
Strider Deathstalker - PC: 4
The Forsaken - PC: 4
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
Blighted Ogrun Warspears - Leader & 4 Grunts: 15
- Warspear Chieftain - PC: 5
Hellmouth - Hellmouth & 3 Tentacles: 6

so ive mashed 2 lists together that I saw online  

1 half of the list patiently waits and plinks away at the enemy mixed with a balls to the wall get in their face

the warspears and hell mouth form the balls to the wall shield for rest of the list that will be plinking away on the flanks and from behind

the seraph and typhon with tactical supremacy will be moving forewards and retreating after firing  death stalkers will be going for solos   the neraphs will go for those that have bein pulled out of formation as well as using the speed for scenario  and ashen viel will be on the warspears

for this list I would like to swop out my wall for 

assassin and banshees with ashen viel they are stealth immune to blast and def17 cant ask 4 more
spell martys to improve the range of the spray spell which is nice

hex hunters and bayal with ashen viel they get stealth which is really gd and can hex bolt the things that the hellmouth pulls

so well see how this goes when I get the models for it

second legion list!

this is based on the new caster im getting next week!
Image result for absylonia 2 list

Legion of Everblight - abby2 armour cracker
Theme: No Theme Selected...
75 / 75 Army

Absylonia, Daughter of Everblight - WB: +28
- Angelius - PC: 17 (Battlegroup Points Used: 17)
- Angelius - PC: 17 (Battlegroup Points Used: 11)
- Naga Nightlurker - PC: 8
- Proteus - PC: 19
- Scythean - PC: 18
- Harrier - PC: 3
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
The Forsaken - PC: 4
Strider Deathstalker - PC: 4
Strider Deathstalker - PC: 4
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
Hellmouth - Hellmouth & 3 Tentacles: 6

so this is the current list a nice mix of speed board control and heavy hitters with proteus/hellmouth and a gd assassination run with a 5" reposition should keep my beasts in check lol

so the idea is hellmouth contest and pull things then proteus pulls them again after the mouth has hit them

so I can safely damage things without giving away to many models 

so what can I change!

for this list the death stalkers can turn into a reak!   within a 24" for control and +2 str on feat turn it will make a really nice harassment piece watch out casters!

you could also drop both deathstalkers and harrier for a protector! to shield the caster

first games of mk3

so I played 2 games of mk3 AND I cant wait to get my rulebook to do some hardcore reading AND the cards as war room sucks!  its not for me lol 

well I played against menoth with thags2  once with arch angel and the other with double ravagor and a unit instead

and even with a table swop I was soundly beaten which is the long n short of it lol

so lets brush over that and move on to what ive learnt

legion have changed like it or lump it! so like the dragonspawn we gotta adapt!

1. speed 5 heavies still hit hard but man are they slow so we need some buffs  to mitigate some of this slowness!

2. jacks are now super efficient with power up at worst 2 turns of running then a free focus for charging ontop of any focus u allocate

3. changes to eyeless sight means you cant sit in a forest and shoot everything before charging lol

4.  our heavy hitters are now 18/19pts with very little changes so a pair will take up all your wb points  and 2 more will take up half of ur 75pt allowance  I think this is enough and then mix in support solo's and units

5. well still be playing for scenario and assassination but the old lists may not work so look for pulls/pushes to drag key units into position for a minimum trade off

painting stuff!

its bin a while since iv posted some painting shots so here goes

the adeptus mechanicus are off the table and its time to paint them as iv got some fleshtearer marines to paint and they are the bulk of the vehicles I thought id start with them.

from the picture I started with mephiston red I need to order so more as iv near enough ran out and need to do 1 more pod and then re go over these 4 and then do the bases and insides!

this also give me an idea as to how much ill need to order to complete the white for the rest of the army I may need 2 order a few more pots !!

in other news I'm owed money from tax so iv got my eye on lots of toys !!

first legion list!!

so here we go this is my first mk3 list up for discussion  I had to make some adjustments so its got only models I own in it!

Lylyth, Shadow of Everblight - WB: +28
- Naga Nightlurker - PC: 8 (Battlegroup Points Used: 8)
- Ravagore - PC: 19 (Battlegroup Points Used: 19)
- Ravagore - PC: 19 (Battlegroup Points Used: 1)
- carnivean  19pts
Strider Deathstalker - PC: 4
Strider Deathstalker - PC: 4
The Forsaken - PC: 4
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
Blighted Nyss Shepherd - PC: 1
Hellmouth - Hellmouth & 3 Tentacles: 6
Strider Scouts - Leader & 5 Grunts: 9
Strider Scouts - Leader & 5 Grunts: 9

the real difference is with the increased points I can fit the carnivean into mk3 for some decent hitting power

with lylyth2 feat double shots for models in control range and gun fighter they can still do dmg in combat !!

but what to change!

Image result for change meme

well sneaky eagle eyed readers will have seen the first change/addition

the hellmouth every list needs 1 in mk3!  lots of board control and as a warrior can be buffed up by lots of spells!

so how can we change it up!!

well  I haven't really added a favourite unit of mine so


with lylyth 2  pin cushion  on living modes means they'll throw out 4 dice damage with 10 shots on feat turn they are also weapon masters with a POW12 mount!! and annysaa gives them a +1

more boxes faster and does more damage than the striders!

banshees and assassin

for this I went all out double banshees and double assassin!  that's 20 bodies with stealth and immune to blast damage at DEF with a POW12 spray. u will need to be clever with placement so that the sprays cover lots of models in the unit to make the most of pin cushion but if its 1 unit then oh well nvm lol it also stops them caster spells for a turn great for sniping support models at spd7 they will get round the board really quickly  and on feat turn that's 40 spray attacks!  even at rat5  ull hit something lol :D

so their we have it a nice way to mix up the old lylyth2 list
