Further Musings

So I have been frequently revisiting my 1850 list for Blog Wars 5 and doodling other ideas out and I wanted to quickly share a  few of these with you and hopefully get some feedback;

-I currently have about 80 points spare.

- Needed more Scoring Units- Dropped Surplus units of Nurglings taking only one larger unit and means i can now take a unit of 15 Plague Bearers, a unit of 10 Plaguebearers, a unit of 20 horrors and a unit of 10 horrors! that should give the army a lot more body.

- I am debating dropping 2 of the Plague Drones and just fielding 3. This would free up nearly 100 points which I would possibly look at investing in a unit of Flamers..... the option here would be to use these 100 points and the other 80 i already have free and take a second Nurgle Soul Grinder.......

so that is it so far... any thoughts guys?

Battle Report 1- IG / Marine Combo

First a note- these reports won't be a turn by turn basis report but more my recollections of key moments that I can learn from and look to use in future games.

Model Review: Herald of Nurgle

So I thought I would start an infrequent series of reviews. Nothing major, I will just write reviews of Models i get that I like or dislike. I won't be doing it for everything but only when I feel like it- it is my hobby after all!

So let's start off with this guy....

This is not my version of the model!

Trial By Fire V2.00

So after yesterday's attempt at an army list and some very valid feedback I have made some changes to the army. I have dropped several rewards and some Nurglings to free up points (they were only a cheap harassing infiltrating unit anyway) and, the biggest change, I have dropped the Burning Chariot. This means i had enough points free to plump for a Nurgle Soulgrinder which should prove to be far more survivable overall! Without further delay, here is the list.....

Trial by Fire

So this coming Saturday I am getting together with both Luke Fogg and Matt Calow (both of whom i could potentially be facing at Blog Wars!) for some 1000 point games. This will be my first major excursion with the New Daemon Codex. I could be up against Guard or Sisters (Luke) or Guard, Orks or Space Marines (Matt). I intend to have a single list that will take on all-comers and have spent a while debating it. This is where it stands at the moment.....

Constant State of Change

After the first draft yesterday, several people came forward with great idea's and some of these I have tried to work in! Keep the idea's coming, I will be getting test games in shortly with this army list (and A LOT of proxying!). A special shout out to Hendrik for his suggestion to maybe ally in CSM as that was what i was previously working on, I did consider it and I have a small allied section written up involving a unit of Havocs with Autocannons, some cultists, an Aegis Line and a Sorcerer..... May try it out!

A Pretty Picture to Brighten the Blog!

Anyway, keep reading for my revised list!

and now for something completely different.

So my previous army was an utter disaster. However salvation may have just burst out of the Warp! That's right i am going to attempt a Daemon army. i have 3 and a bit months and 1850 points to sort. let's see what happens here!

I have written my first provisional list and present it for your musings. Please please please comment on it because i need all the feedback I can gather. I have put notes by units where appropriate explaining my choices...
