Brotherhood Cavalry (plus: Go To Bed, Brent!)

This post is a bit of nothing, really.

Finally got around to putting the Heavy Horse on the proper-sized bases.  

Here was my original test model.  I've raised the horse some, on most of the models.

I've never mastered the use of, nor the desire to use, magnets.  Here, I just won't glue the rider on.  When my conversions are all finished, I'll have the ability to mix and match a few riders here and there depending on the build.

This base coat isn't about the horse, but rather about the base.  The layers of spray match the current basing scheme of the army.  After the horses are painted, I'll sand and flock, and otherwise finish, the base.
(And hopefully that'll work!)

I have to say, I've been play-testing these (Thunderwolf Horse Cav) and I'm not sold.  Sure, I can see the appeal, but it's one of those options that dictate the choices in the rest of the army.  I think 'best' might be two squads of two, no options, or perhaps one squad of three with a Storm Shield.

Not sure - the major issue is obviously the Leadership - who wants to saddle yourself with Battle Leader or Lord just to babysit?  See what I mean about dictating the rest of the army?

Mmm... maybe even two or three squads of one, Plain-Jane?  Regardless, I can't help but remember Thunderwolf Cav just never worried me that much when I played it.  Too much, "Oh, look at me charge across the table straight at you!"

Scary.  "Here, have a unit."  Same strategy as Blood Crushers, methinks.

I'm tired.  This is me falling asleep at the keyboard, randomly typing.

The Hof from OKC had a brutal All-Thunder-Pups, All-The-Time army he brought down several months back, but ironically - given what I just wrote - it ran Round One into a Fate-Crusher build.  Talk about your hard counters...

Fate-Crusher... have I ragged on that build lately?



Oh, right.  Sleep.

TWC have a use - and that is a countercharge unit and as a bullet magnet.

I am tossing up squads as: PF/SS, 2 with 1 PF, 2 with 1 meltabomb.
Probably 3 of to go with my Loganwing.

The Brotherhood provided the city with a cavalry detachment. The Blackhead cavalrymen patrolled the city wall and six of them made rounds.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
