Excarnate - Bile Thrall (Tactica) How to lose friends and alienate people

Hi all

Haven't writen in a while. Have been preparing for the swedish nationals in WM by painting lots of miniatures. And dreaming of killing Gun Mages and Nyss Hunters and other high def units using cheap Bile Thralls.

I will (have been by the time this gets published) played Skaverous in the nationals. And Im thinking about biles. And Excarnate. And how silly it is. In the list I will be running the threatrange is "just" 22" from your unit commander in the bile unit. Silly.

Wanna know how it works? wanna know? This is how it works:

In this setup, the Skaverous player goes first (best obv). I have choosen just the figures involved in the trick:
Darragh Wrathe
Warwitch Siren
"Arc node"

He is faced with a bunch of Nyss, 2 heavys and eDenny.


Move up with everything. The biggest threat range a Nyss hunter can get is 22" (with push and +2 SPD) but usually it is just 19. To be sure you could run 10" up the table but here I just advance them 9,5".
Assuming the Denny player chooses to advance cautiously it could end up something like this. Would you feel safe? I think I would. But here comes round 2

1. First powerboost the Arc Node

2. Run the arc node up the table. Find an easy living target. In lack of that, just find a living one.
3. Move Skaverous up 3,5-somthing-inches.

5. Place new bile thrall grunt as shown in picture

now here comes a lot of movement tricks

6. Telekinesis (TK) the first bile thrall and then TK back yourself (this requires you to feat before excarnate to get enough focus, but you can also skip this step)
7. Use skarlock to TK bile unit leader to keep formation.

8. Darragh do his thing! 1" more move (forward for bile, backward for Skaverous)

9. Walk, PURGE! result below:

Beware, this will probably not make you allot of friend, this move. And considering the additional damage you can make with a reaper and the withershadow combine in the list you might just as well change your name and skip town all together ;)

But there it is.

Note to self (lesson learned from masters): Bile thralls doing Purges hits everything and causes continuous corrosion. CONTINUOUS CORROSION!

Golden Demon Updates

Ok. So I have just finished a weekend of gaming and the preparations and all the miniatures painted for the contests. Now it is time to continue the golden demon projects. Today I will get some paint on the carnifex. The dreadnaughts will arrive later this week and last night I started constructing the display base for my terminators.

Preperation and test of color scheme

Preparations is ongoing for Golden Demon. I am almost done with the ork warboss as a warm up and his base is on its way. The Base for my duel is getting along, I still need to find more detail to add to it, but I do have a couple of months for that ;)

Made a first test piece for the Carnifex monster I am entering. Not sure about the colors but they are around where I want them. And I keep taking pictures using my iphone, thus the quality of them. Hehe

Minis and plans. Miniplans.

I currently own 4 cryx models that lack paint. Four! Thats it. And Im not planning on getting any more in the near future (but, the plans of mice and men and all that...)

What I am planning however is to enter the golden demon in, either the U.K or in Spain this year. If I enter in Spain I wont win in any category but I will get to see some of the absolutley best painted minis this year.

If I enter in the U.K I might have a chance. A snowballs chance in hell, but still. I would like to try :) I am really excited to start. I planned to finish the cryx before but I couldn't keep my hand out of the yar as it seem...

I am planning on entering in the category Duell and the blue foam is the first stages of the little diorama it will be.

See you around!
