    Visually, i really like the nyss hunters, but a question I had that learned council further elucidated on, wouldn't the dominator slow Nyss hunters down, so while the buff he gives is good, you're also ham stringing some of their natural abilities?

    Also, total-newb-haven't-picked-up-the-book-yet-question, but would I be using Cylena too, or just the Nyss hunters?

    Because I was bored on a four hour drive today, I started thinking about and planning my future purchases for warmahordes

    First up is getting a max unit of forgeguard and Brun and Lug to complete my mercenary army

    Then I'm gonna start on gators, which means eventually I'll snag Wrongeye and Snapjaw

    I wanna finish with Farrow, which of course leads to Rorsh and Brine

    So then I thought, there's one more of the four "Companion" lesser warlocks- Dahlia and Skarath

    And THEN I thought "Well, who could potentially take all FOUR of them in a list, and who ALSO has a character warbeast?"

    And then I realized that my friend is offering to sell me his circle collection, which includes Epic Kaya and Laris

    My point is, one day I will field an army that is all of the Lesser Warlocks and Character warbeasts

    GO TEAM POKEMON

    Yeah, pBorka in trolls can do it pretty well too, and at least has a companion attachment

    But neither of them come with a character warbeast like eKaya!

    (I'm also aware this will be a terrible list, but the novelty of it amuses me)

    ANyone know which paints the PP studio scheme uses for Skorne skin? I've decided I want that look.

    Midlund Flesh + Rucksack Tan for the base, Thornwood Green + Cryx Bane for the shadows and Jack Bone + Menoth White for highlights. Both shadows and highlights go first the dark color (the first one on both cases) and then a mix.

    Scars are done with inks I think.

    Be warned that the Nyss have a reputation as extremely difficult to assemble. Cylena is mandatory with the nyss.

    The dominator will slightly limit the unit's movement, but it shouldn't be a major issue. He's got pathfinder and shouldn't be in front anyway.

    On further thought, I'm not sure if nyss are the best choice. They're expensive to include in your list and the dominator only increases the cost. They're great generalists though. It's the kind of thing you cold have a long conversation about at your local game store.

    I'm not entirely happy with how my jade armor is turning out, but then I found this and I'm considering stealing that cloth look for my armor.

    Hey, I know the guy who painted this. You can find the rest of his army at increase5.blogspot.com. He also posts on this forum, user name @Iskander

  • EchoEcho ski-bap ba-dapModerator mod
    Small world! Yeah, found that blog.

    This is still way dark since it's just the basecoat, but it's also too green. I want it more towards that turquoise.

    Assembled a Bronzeback into upper and lower half today. There's barely any contact surface at all when gluing the halves together, so I think I may have to fill the lower half with greenstuff so there's actually some surface area for the glue.

  • EchoEcho ski-bap ba-dapModerator mod
    Thinking about modding the Bronzeback Titan so he stands straighter and taller, but then I'll have to sculpt him a new sixpack.

    I can understand being skilled at painting. It's a process I can wrap my mind around. But sculpting is goddamn black magic.

    I'm very excited about it. Reach, spd 5 chassis, and a gun. That's practically a Reckoner.

    How is it? Thinking about picking it up but if it's just repackaged NQ stuff I might steer away. Any Infernal action?

    It has everything that has been shown off in NQ so far, plus a bunch of new monsters and a bunch of templates to use as well. The Deathly Endowments from the Specter are back, and while I don't have the original article immediately on hand, it feels like they possibly added more of them. The Dragonspawn section is pretty cool.

    Forge guard are really good, so they're likely to be out of stock quite often.

  • PMAversPMAvers Registered User regular
    I still have a min unit of Hammerbros, and I got them when they came out.

    I've been watching the site, and they've gone in and out of stock all summer. In just hope they come back in before the summer 40% off ends

    So for our stores journeyman there allowing any non-epic caster plus 10 points, mangled metal instead of a set battlebox.

    I'm playing strakhov, two kodiaks.

    No remorse.

    WarMachine is a game of brutalness. Your first few games are rules explaining, getting comfortable with the mechanics, and learning some synergy's and tactics.

    Soon, you're off the training wheels. Then your next game is eHaley with a Stormwall. Welcome to WarMachine.

    Holy shit, yes. In all my years of gaming and everything backassward and counter-intuitive GW has done, I've never met a kit that I HAD to pin, just to get assembled. Pin for durability or posing, sure, but getting those arms on and lined up without pinning is flat out impossible.

    PP, I am disappoint!

  • kaortikaorti Registered User regular
    I had good results with grey stuff and gorilla brand superglue. It worked better than pinning, and hasn't broken in a year so far. Just be adequately careful with the models.

    @Inquisitor‌

    You asked about which faction to pick for running the most 'jacks

    Once again, may I introduce you to the Searforge Commission and the list that has been making a comeback

    The "Miserable Metal Mountain", or MiMeMo

    At 50pts the list has eleven warjacks in it
    15058057021_6987b0c3aa_c.jpg

    At 35 points it has six

    Now I just need three more gunbunnies....(I have enough for the 35 point list though!)

    It seems to do pretty well, and is super focus efficient

    The conversation about the Nyss makes me happy that I've sat on getting them for so long, hopefully they'll get a resculpt soon.

    Meanwhile I picked up Allison Jakes and a second Hunter. Not 100% sure what jack I'd want her to run, maybe Gallant or a Centurion.

    Speaking of this, they mentioned in the new Primecast that both are both character warjacks, and that the Cygnar one is named Dynamo and is Nemo's.

    I sincerely hope it's a more finely tuned fit for Nemo(s) than past Warjacks. He synergies well with T-Head, but T-Head is 12 points. Any asset that gets him better competitiveness on the table is aces, 'because the Nemo's are fun to play, but overshadowed by other lists and casters.

    I'm ultimately baffled, personally. I remember on the official forum I made a series of posts about why they were almost certainly the third variant on the jacks of renown chassis, and the reasoning was sound. For this to be Nemo's character warjack was the only real alternative, but I'm still puzzled. It has everything in common with the Stormclad chassis, but it has a Centurion's spear and drops the shield. So is it based on a Centurion? or a Stormclad chassis? :/

    *shrug*
    The only other guess I can take is that all of these characters are going to be based on the idea of combining two existing chassis. Consider the Retribution one, which seem to have a number of traits of both Sheeyl and Vyre myrmidons.

  • NobodyNobody Registered User regular
    I'm kinda curious which Nemo it'd do best with. I'm thinking it was probably designed with Nemo3 in mind

    Nemo and Stryker are our only 3 deep-iteration casters. I hope it works well with all three. Nemo1 is fantastic with warjacks, so I think it's a given he'll be great with him, but Nemo3 isn't quite as fragile, so that's fair too. We'll just wait and see!

  • kaortikaorti Registered User regular
    Is a mekanika spear but not a piston spear like the centurion uses.
