Friendly Nom nom noms.... take 3

Today I have decided to change up my Adepticon friendly list to add in some Parasite of Mortrex action into the mix.  He is kinda like the Spanish Inquisition.  No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.

WIP: Parasite of Mortrex

So the fates were kind and I had a free afternoon to work on my bugs.  So, I headed up to Fantasy Books and Games and brought with me my new Parasite model as well as my Tyranid Prime model.

New Year, New League, New Format.

So the guys over at Fantasy Books and Games have decided to up the ante on their point cap to 2k on tournies and now during the league as well.  Does this really change anything for me?  Not really.  I find that my army builds does not really go past the single FOC chart.  What it does is give me a chance to try out some other options I have not used before.  So without further ado here is my first list of the new year.


Tyrant- wings, 2 sets of devourer, regen, book powers                             
Parasite of Mortrex                                                           
Doom -  spore                                                                  
2 Hive guard brood                                                           
5 raveners - devourers, rending claws                               
5 raveners - devourers, rending claws                                   
13 Gargoyles – toxin sacs                                                     
12 Termagant brood – devourers, pod                                       
9 genestealer , toxin sacs broodlord                                          
9 genestealer , toxin sacs broodlord                                          
Tervigon, catalyst, regen                                                        

There is not much in this list that you guys have not seen before. The one new edition is the Parasite.  He is a fluffy character and probably not that useful but I will put him in the group of gargoyles and give me some forward synapse to help the raveners get across the board. His abilites are kinda cool but not very useful.  I have to get him into combat for one of his ripper swarm rules to take place and the enemy has to outflank an infantry squad for the other one to take effect.  So very limited but anytime you can get free bugs I am happy.

This will be my first trial.  I might stick with this for a few weeks to give him a test but there are other things I want to try.  I also want to try a Carnifex in a sporepod with bioplasma, the 2+ flamer template and regen.  I figure having that guy pop into your ranks might be a scary distraction leaving my other threats to do some killing.

I also woul like to try dual trigons and dual tervigons.  just to see how well teams of big badies do.  On the hoby side I did finally got my red terror in and started to assemble him.  I am still on the fence if I keep him a snake or add in the legs or add in a new ravener body to make him a bit bigger.  I will post some pics to get your opinions later this week.

New Year, New Leaf, Same Nom nom nom

It is a new year and I have seen a lot of new years resolutions go flying by. Well I don't want to be left out in the cold so I have decided to make a couple this year as well.

2013 is the year of the Nom nom nom.  I am tired of being the Ork guy and want to switch to the bug guy.  This means that I am going to focus on playing with my bugs this year.  I will put away the rest of my armies and focus on painting and building and learning the in and outs of bug play.  The only time I will stop is if some one needs to test out a list against one of my other army or when playing in a big game and bugs are not on the list of armies to choose from.

I also think this year I will try to thin out my armies.  I probably won't sell any until the bazaar that Fantasy Books and Games has later in the year but I think it is time to get rid of my knights, dark eldar, regular eldar, and all flavors of marines that I own. If I can get 50% or retail for them I will be happy.

This will leave me with Necrons, Guard, Orks, Nids and Tau  It is a good reduction of forces and will clear up some room in my hobby area.
