I Have a Warmachine Army!

We have had a lot going on – lots of movies on the horizon, good video games season and replaying some games, all the fall shows… We’re going on vacation soon, so it adds a lot of urgency to it all, too. Two movies opening this weekend we have to watch – and a Doctor Who finale. Oh, and I still need to read Big Hero 6 for the LitFlix…

Well, amidst that I am also getting a chance to finally play Warmachine! And if I’m going to do that, I needed to finish getting my army together. I had my hardest models yet to construct. So far, I was here:

Vectors Built

As I showed last time, I was able to apply some similar construction techniques to get several of my mechs together. Lots of similar pieces and ideas, and lots of plastic – which holds together easier. I had pewter to go – and my leader, knick-named “Swiss Army Knife.” I have more pictures to share as I finished my Warmachine army!

Building My Warmachine Army

I’ve run out of super glue, so for now, I thought it would be fun to chronicle a bit of my Warmachine construction.

Luckily, when my additional models arrived, I found that the individual packs do come with building instructions!

More pictures to come, to show off my progress, and so you can see what I was working with!

First Thoughts on Warmachine

I actually haven't bought any yet.

I actually haven’t bought any yet.

I mentioned recently that I have taken up the tabletop war game Warmachine to demonstrate the game at an upcoming gaming con here in town. I made this as an educated decision with the help of a friend, and a bit of looking online at prices and such. And hey, I have at least the one friend who plays…

However, I didn’t really know much more than that. I ordered my first clockworks mechs in the form of a Battle Box – a leader and three mechs. I hoped, perhaps foolishly, that this was all I needed to play.

Well, I’ve hunted down some rules information, received my Battle Box, and done some army math… so a few real first impressions now of Warmachine! I’m pretty excited to give it a go, but currently all of my models are in tiny pieces with no instructions…
