Yup you guessed it, Vinsanity didn’t paint anything again this week. It’s like he’s Russian or something… I only got two models mostly done this week – Helynna and eEyriss though I still need to shade and highlight the blue. I ran out of offwhite paint so the base of eEyriss is not completed either (was thinking similar to my Menoth bases, off white cobblestone like appearance) but will complete those and add them to next week’s post. I have a Manticore about 80% completed, just did not finish the highlighting of the grey so didn’t post him. Working on another Manticore, a flock of Griffons and some solos to run a two pair of Helynna and eVyros (I believe I have a fully painted Kaelyssa list now).
I’ve given Vinsanity an extra three weeks and he still hasn’t finished anything. So you get pictures of pink and nothing more!
I completed my Sentinels and Rahn these past couple of weeks though you may notice one Sentinel is missing – only got nine arms unfortunately so part is on order.
Still need to finish the bases with flock and finish the power line / gem work on the normal models (as I say this I just realised I missed the fur on the CA…damnit) but otherwise the unit is ready to go! Full listing of models here.
Retribution is getting a slew of releases in June – pictures below of the new stuff (we’ve all seen Elara2) along with the trade points / rumors so far. Will update as we get more.
So a month ago went to a local club Siege of the Hills for the first time where they are wrapping up a Journeyman League (hence the weird points total). Will hopefully be going many times again!
The scenario was a simple one – no Killbox and each player had a 30 hit box ARM 20 objective (no special rules) which if destroyed, won the game. Relatively easy thing to kill but it was placed very far back in both deployments so hard to get to. Anyway, took a Helynna list and played against pThags – hopefully remembered the lists correctly below.
Hey all! Week One was of course delayed *glares at Vinsanity* but we are here with our first instalment! Will keep progress tracked in the original post, though I’m not sure why the colours aren’t working on all of the breakthroughs. Much annoyance.
Pictures below the break.
Yes a 3++ post. Expect another soon as well *gasp*.
So in an effort to encourage myself to blog more and get the site back up and running, Vinsanity and I are doing a painting challenge with the primary focus being on two armies each for Warmachine / Hordes. If anyone else would like to jump on board, please be my guest and just email me with what you’ll be doing and then with the weekly updates. I’ll keep track of everything with a post on Tuesday with pictures and everything. Much excitement I know.
With this in mind, the below is what we are looking to paint with the goal of a Warmachine / Hordes point per day. As things get painted we will cross them out :).
Following on from the Scyrah musings on Warcasters we now have Warjacks (aka Myrmidons). Remember, this is based upon the spoilers we currently have and without the full Mk3 rules. We are all impatient so must talk about this n
Hyperion – The silly rules around colossals and their secondary weapons have streamlined a bit but the main gun of the Hyperion is unchanged. It’s still a short ranged, large AOE, high POW, critical consume gun of death. Ravyn and Issyria still love this guy in being able to extend range or get a second shot and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in Helynna lists where she can really help out all Warjacks (and particularly Shyeel with her Feat) and try for some Crit Fishing, Ossyan with his Crit Fishing / gunline of death or Garryth with Sentry giving another shot opportunity. Pairs well with AFG for a +2″ RNG in a pinch as well. I’m honestly more excited to see what Helios brings but Hyperion will probably see a little bit more play just from an increased number of warcasters who could benefit his weapon directly.
So, some initial thoughts time. Keep in mind the information we have is not the whole picture. We don’t know all the rules of Mk3 yet and the information we have is clearly not everything. Whether the cards are early playtest versions, second to last versions, etc. so the below is based on that information. That information may change very quickly once the official rules drop so take the below with a grain of salt and for discussion purposes only.
I’ll start with the Warcasters.
CIRCLE INSIDER INFORMATION ADDED
Battlebox casters and contents spoiled here.
Mk3 comes out with rules available June 12 with official release date June 29.
Anything that comes from a card, I will just have the cards uploaded rather than quoting them (click the card to go to bigger picture). Breaks it up nicely too… Let me know if there’s anything missed or you’ve seen (please add a source) and will add :).
First of all, let us look at what the spoilers are to date (I will update this as they come along in pink for easy access):
Working on compiling all the full card spoilers here. I will keep this separate from the officially confirmed statistics just for easy reference in case these are not real or older versions or something in between.
Edit: for now, I’ll link the IMGURs and then I’ll roll through for some summaries :).
