Watch “WARMACHINE: Tactics Kickstarter — Privateer Press Interactive” on YouTube

Here is a new video regarding the forthcoming Warmachine Tactics videogame. Funded through Kickstarter in 2 days flat this game has promise, but I lack a machine I can play it on presently. Therefore my interest lies with the limited edition alt. Sculpt models being offered for new Journeyman characters being released as part of the next Warmachine book, Vengeance as well as the first ever caster to be released as both “prime” and “epic” versions at the same time and the first ever faction change! He starts as a Noble Cygnaran, then he snuff it and joins Cryx! Full stats are released through a No Quarter Extra made for the kickstarter and all over the Privateer Press Forums. Check the video then check he Kickstarter @ Kickstarter.com!

Long Time No Post…

Alright, long time is something of an understatement. I apologise for the lack of posting. this is mainly due to a new job, lack of a PC, I’m typing this on my tablet at the moment, as well as generic real life being a bitch. So what should i post about? Theres so much i haven’t covered its probably best to not try and catch up, that way madness lies. So i think a general hobby update is the way to go.

On My Table

My recent hobby related activity has been Warmahordes as per usual. I have been snapping up ebay bargains left right and centre for my Menite forces. This is my second go at Menoth and thus far I’ve been picking up all the stuff I didn’t get previously. Last time i was all about the Flameguard, i did not have a single Exemplar. This time however i have nothing but Exemplars! I’m loving the medium bases and seriously looking forward to the upcoming Bastion Seneschal. I have gone for a purple colour scheme for my guys which i will show off below. Christmas saw me getting, initially the circle Gargantuan, bless my wifes effort, which i was able to swap for a Judicator. I love it and need to fight the urge to put it in every list i make! My current caster of choice is Kreoss2 and i need to keep with him until i have a certain level of competency but new shineys pull at my attention. I will be converting myself a Kreoss2 from the plastic Kreoss1 and have been picking up crusaders on the cheap for conversions of Fires of Salvation and a Guardian jack.

Sorry for the poor quality

The Gargantuans book has been released and although I dont have it presently I do have War Room and thus all the Trollbloods new stuff available to see. I love me some Epic Grim! One of the first Warlock units available and definately the most characterful, I will be picking him up as well as the Trollkin Warders. I rather like the look of the night troll as well. Unfortunately anyone being vocal about these things that iv seen, mainly on the PP forums, is being negative about the troll releases. In fact the Trollbloods forum seems to be the Cygnar forum of the Hordes forums, endlessly complaining. Not that I’ve really read the other forums

The other distraction I have is the new Warmachine faction, The Convergence of Cyriss. luckily these are not released yet but my wallet has a wary look about it.

Thats about it for now, just a quick update and some self gratifying pictures to show off. Now if you’ll excuse me, i have some conversions to work on whilst i should be doing housework.

Privateer Press New Model Freakout!

The perils of real life take a harsh toll on the desires of the lone blogger. It has been a long while since my last post and all I can offer at this time is that I blinked and Privateer Press, Freaked. Out….

It…   Looks odd. Wierd pose.

Mmmm, Exemplar-y

Gargantuans, they’re BIG!

Take one majestic Stag, and turn it into a Goat.

Should be menites 😦

Oink!

Gun mages. On a Horse.

Cool name. Cool concept.

Less hurty when place in a sock.

Coolest legion model revealed to date. 

I would like to assure you that I have a review coming along nicely and once I can get my mitts on a computer that can hack it, i’ll be back to more regular bloggage.

I Give In To The Desires Of My Burninating Heart…

Some time ago I left the hallowed homelands of the Creator of Man and strapped on a set of pointy ears. There was a lot of killiness that went on (I was mostly on the receiving end, it must be said) but my heart felt hollow. Something was missing. As time passed I came to realise that I felt cold. No amount of Myrmidon based fun would warm it. Except the Pheonix. It sets fire to things. I always liked setting fire to things. (Using the medium of a wargame to do it seems like the best possible channel for this it must be said) So I looked again at my options and it became clear that there was one choice for me. My burninating heart desired the warming presence of grilled heathen.

"Noone wears a billowy cloak like old Vilmon..."

My first faction had to be the way to go. So with my arms bound I presented myself to the Scrutators for the inevitable wracking. Once my penance has been served I will return to my first love, Feora. Only now I have a stabby option as well in the form of Thyra. These lovely ladies are to be my chosen concubines of Warmachine, as dangerous a prospect as that seems.

I do NOT look forward to gluing the smoke stacks on again.

This does however create something of a dilemma. I have been saving for a Mountain King with which to squashify and eat things. Now I need to decide if I want to cook things or eat them. I cannot see sufficient monies coming to me anytime soon that will allow me to do both, so what to do. I’m fairly sure I know, since the first pictures of the Judicator nearly swayed me back to Menoth on their own, where this decision will go. Plus Epic Feora was always my favorite and she loves her a Judicator. All I need to do is resist buying any other shinies before I have to coinage for a Judicator. So I have managed to swap all the Elfin toys for the correct and proper burny things and I intend to show what I paint on here, as any blogger worth his salt would. I really must try getting more actual Bloggery done rather than just advertising everyones new toys I can’t afford! but anyway….

WANT!

Judicator

Oh. Sweet. Lord

Coming Soon From Privateer Press…

So comrades, the newest and longestest awaited news from Privateer has to be this:

You are a captive of Subterra Bravo, imprisoned in the facility’s deepest laboratory, the hall of nightmares known as LEVEL 7. Your singular goal is to escape, but to do that you will have to evade the human and inhuman denizens of this subterranean labyrinth before the entire base is locked down, sealing you in for the rest of your short, tormented life. Will you work together with your fellow prisoners to endure Subterra Bravo’s endless perils, or will you use them to secure your own escape? Ultimately, your chances of survival will depend on how well you manage your greatest weapon, which is also your greatest threat: fear itself.

LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE] is a semi-cooperative, story-driven survival-horror board game for 1–4 players with nerves of steel and a willingness to confront the impossible.

  • 47 Map Tiles

Next up we have these guys…

Alas not a resculpt but a rebox. Then…

Despite the little bits of nay-saying about him. I want one. Badly. *Googles going rate for black market kidneys*

All of a sudden, this happened!

We all knew it was coming. I was expecting Trolls in it though. Not sure why.

And there you go, all up to date and lovely!

Privateer Press, Best ‘Jack Evar!1!

I’m not usually one for nostalgia, but now I have seen my favorite Warjack in Warmachine has had its plastic incarnation revealed. I like it and its related to the most under-costed jack in the game as well! BEHOLD!

Mmmm, delicious nostalgia. Menoth was my first faction. The Sanctifier looks really great as well.

Now some Hordes love in the form of a good doggy…

Followed by some serious creepiness for Legion…

Squibbly.

And thats it for now. The releases seem to be coming thick and fast so we’ll see what else happens this week!

Joining the Plastic Crusade! Knights Exemplar…

Knights Exemplar

Privateer press has announced the release of plastic Knights Exemplar to join the members of the Exemplar Errants. The privateer blurb states thusly…

United by shared faith and a deep fraternal bond, the Knights Exemplar are the embodiment of absolute obedience and are ready and eager to shed blood in Menoth’s name. For each brother who falls in battle, his comrades are invigorated by his sacrifice and become ever more resolute and unwavering in pursuit of holy war.

I like these new sculpts. They look better proportioned and have a greater proportion of cloth for a better potential colour variance. Had I played Menoth any more, I would get them in a heartbeat.
