Another reason I dig the Hordes/Warmachine? They advance the game universe. What? The fluff of the game sometimes alters the game. Wait…what? An advancing universe that actually means something? How cool is that? For me very! I like the models, the game, and they are moving the story forward. Well played Privateer Press well played. Wait won’t this advancing story ruin the game or change the way certain models play? Nope!

Not only was 4-14-14 another April palindrome (4-1-14 see numbers are fun!) but it was also the day I was spawned.
This is the cake my special lady friend made for me. How awesome is a Cryx cake? Totally super is how much! It is red velvet to boot, another favorite of mine.
Now to finish my necrotech upgrades to become a fully fledged Cryxian cake-thrall!

Well now that I have a burgeoning Hordes force, it is time I branch out to the punchy robot side of the Iron Kingdoms. I need to make me a Warmachine force.
The first question is which army to use?
Well there is Cygnar, but they are the “good” guys. It looks like a lot of shooting units and that is interesting. The only warcaster that appeals to me is Haley. I The rest do nothing for me, visually. The warjack aesthetic is descent. Especially the Cyclone. A gatling gun is great, but two is even better! The Ironclad looks fun with his punchy fist and smashy hammer. The units are sort of meh! for me though. They seem to have a lot of lightning units, attacks and abilities. Lightning is ok, but not really my bag. This faction is also really blue.
I have to pass because they are the “good” guys and I just cannot support that. I also don’t want to paint that much quasi-Ultramarine blue.

Another reason I dig the Hordes/Warmachine games, is freedom of choice. There is only one model that you must bring to the tabletop, a warcaster or warlock. After that there is only a point limit that must be agreed and met. Say you want to run all monsters and robots. You can. If you want all troopers and units, then go ahead. If all you want is single models, then go nuts. There are very few army list restrictions and so far all I have seen is force allowance (how many of a certain unit may be fielded.) You are not forced to take certain amounts of any one type of unit to build a force. The freedom to build whatever force you like is great.
