2nd Dread Complete, Pulling out Orks to Paint

So I wrapped up the last details on the 2nd Dread.  It's not the greatest picture, but you can get the idea that it matches the original close enough on the table top.


I am now also fairly certain that I am going to just take orks to 'ard Boyz.  I don't really want to spend a bunch of money for things I'm only going to use for 'Ard boyz, and I'd like to work on painting stuff that is actually usable in at least 2k point armies.  That means with minimum investment I'd either have to do a combo drop pod/mech Templar list or just run orks I (mostly) have in the bag right now.  I think the later will probably do better, but of course it all depends on the missions and the draw.

Either way here is the new list.

Big Mek, KFF, PK, Evy Armor, Cybork, Grot Oiler
13 Lootas
12 Kommandos w/ 2 Flamers and Snikrot
19 Shoota boyz w/ 2 big shootas, Nob BP/PK
29 Slugga boyz w/ 3 Rokkits, Nob BP/PK
29 Slugga boyz w/ 3 Rokkits, Nob BP/PK
18 Ard Boyz,  Nob BP/PK
4 MANz w/ 2 Combi Flamer, 1 Combi Rokkit in BW, Deffrolla, Armor Plates, Grot Riggers, Big Shoota
Deff Dread, Big Shoota, Flamer, Armor Plates, Grot Riggers
3 Rokkit Buggies
3 Kans w/ Kustom Mega Blastas
BW, Deffrolla, Armor Plates, Grot Riggers, Big Shoota

Ghaz rides with the Manz, the KFF Mek rides in the 2nd wagon with the 'Ard Boyz.  The two bricks of boyz can advance and try to shoot tranports to take midfield objectives.  The shootas remain for rear garud objective holding.  Walkers are moving up with the BWs most often.  Lootas shoot as long as they can, and Snikrot does what he does.

14 KP, or 27 'Ard Boyz Killpoints.  Not bad, and not a lot of soft targets.  Is it the most uber competitive list, probably not.  But it still looks solid and I know how all the parts work... though it has been awhile since I've really got games in with the lads so I'll need to get some games in some time hopefully.

All I need to buy is one Mega Armored Nob.
Painting is a little different.
First off the BW on the right is done, I just need to do the Deffrolla.  But then I have the whole other BW to do and the 3rd buggie.  I also have decided to try to make the 'ard Boyz from models I had.  I actually had TOO MANY boyz with plates and iron gobz so I had to pull bits off.  So you'll see the boyz in the front just need to get touch ups.  However there are a dozen other boyz behind them than need the whole job (all but 2 have the base airbrush done).

Plus the MANz.  Plus maybe a new Nob for the 'Ard Boyz so I don't have to use the Kommando Nob (as cool as he is) but we'll save that for last if I had any time.

Of course I still have one more Drop Pod to paint first to wrap up my 1850 Drop Pod Templar.
