    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!

    Oh I'm hoping, I have a soft spot for Nemo1.

    Me too. I'm not sure a new Warjack can fix all that's wrong with him, but it damn sure can't hurt.

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!".

    I'm not sure that there's anything wrong with Nemo1 besides mage hunter strike force and ravagores existing.
    I've had some good times running two centurions, a lancer, and the silver line.

    Heh I came up with a similar list at one point, but I got pulled into working on my Siege + Stormwall list

    I'm going to definitely revisit that at some point (after I finish my DZC army probably)

    By no means a push over. He's just susceptible to so darn much, and dying to a stiff breeze. With a full boat of support feeding him power tokens, he's hell on wheels, and pretty fun. I think the current curve of factions and lists just make taking him a dangerous prospect. In a two/three list pairing, he could def be your War Machine drop, assuming it's not Ret, or some Menoth lists.

    The general rule of thumb when it comes to WM/H armies:

    If it involves dragons, they're bullshit.

    I mean, dragons in Warmahordes are basically unkillable god-beings so yeah

    and of course she picked the warcaster who is basically the physical embodiment of one of the dragons

    thanks, honey

    Years after a cryptic mention in Jarl's theme force, Trollkin Highwaymen are a thing that exists!

    71096_TrollkinHighwaymen_WEB.jpg
    As war has consumed the trollkin people, even outlaws and bandits among them have taken up arms in defense of kith and kriel. Peerless woodsmen and hunters, these highwaymen blend easily into forests and swamps. They strike from the shadows, unleashing withering pistol fire from a distance before closing to finish the job at point-blank range.

    Also, new Scattergunners. I think they look pretty neat and will definitely be grabbing a box.

    I just need to stop playing Trolls for a while. Every time I buy stuff, within a year it goes into plastic. I like light models that wont break my back. Maybe I should go back to Cryx for a bit.

  • TheBigEasyTheBigEasy Registered User regular
    But plastics feel way too light, especially on big, heavy warnouns. I could never imagine lugging around a plastic Earthborn or Mulg.

    75051_Maximus_WEB.jpg
    Maximus’ legend as a warlord was already on the rise when he and his warband came upon a group of Greylords and their doom reaver slaves. Though his warband was slain, Maximus fought on. When his weapon splintered, he snatched up a fellblade from one of the fallen. The magic of the Orgoth weapon took hold, heightening his rage and giving him the maddened resolve to hack down his remaining foes in seconds. Maximus is now consumed by hatred and driven to slaughter. He occupies a place somewhere between awe and terror among his own kind, a gore-splattered hero whose legend grows with each gruesome kill.

    Ha! My buddy was rambling on about fellblades and greylords and staves and such. I cut him off by saying that Maximus is not a spineless human dog. He's Farrow and that means he can't be controlled by your puny sticks.

    Secondly, I got to play pGoreshade for the first time this Saturday. I got his new sculpt and really wanted to play with it. His "Surprise Bane Thralls!" feat is pretty funny, but I really could have subbed almost any other Cryx warcaster and won as handily. So I'm not sure that it was that great of a list for him. Then again, I have no idea what list I should have used with him. He feels so different compared to my normal caster (Scaverous).

    Next we just need a Slaughterhouser upgrade kit to turn them into Doom Cleavers.

  • ArchArch Neat-o, mosquito! Registered User regular
    I need more money so that I can buy all the models (usually in multiple) for minions

    and an earthbreaker

    that'd be great

    31111_Dynamo_WEB.jpg
    Dynamo is the most successful of Sebastian Nemo’s many prototype warjacks, the one that has survived extensive use in the field. Powered by its galvanic generator, Dynamo is outfitted to render electrical destruction via its devastating storm cannon. This weapon fires deadly bolts of lightning that can strike clusters of advancing soldiers, or concentrated to melt heavy armor to slag. Thanks to Dynamo’s ability to harness and channel its own kinetic energy, each attack it unleashes is more deadly than the last.

    Classification:Character Heavy Warjack
    Base Size:50mm
    PIP Code:31111
    Price:$49.99*
    Model Materials:Resin and White Metal
    Model Count:1
    Packaging:Box

    So, it's considered to be more successful than the Thunderhead? Ouch.

  • kaortikaorti Registered User regular
    The thunderhead washed out at the pricing stage. It's a one-off proof of concept. By the sound of it, an economized dynamo could become the next gen Cygnar chassis.

    Ahh, I was wondering if I had missed something.

    Now that I think about it, the Thunderhead really hasn't appeared in fluff since the book it was introduced in has it?

    I think it pops up occasionally, but rare because they don't want to risk losing it to enemy hands.

    It does have a nice advantage in that it doesn't use coal, so they don't have to lug around as much supplies for it.

    The original idea was a stealth jack with no coal smoke to give it away. It cost a mint, but managed to do entirely away with the coal. Of course it sounds like a distant thunderstorm and stinks of ozone, so stealth wasn't quite achieved.
