Vassal of Menoth

Well, my wife and I were out of town this past weekend, so anything hobby-related came to a dead halt. And so went the last weekend of the summer!

However, over the last couple of days the gears of Warmachine started to grind again, and out popped a new Vassal of Menoth.

These cheap little solos are so good, I couldn't resist adding this second one to my collection. They add a lot of defensive versatility to Menoth 'jacks with their Enliven ability, can boost 'jack offensive output with Auxiliary Attack, and can even fling their own magic spell...but really, it never comes to that.

'Til next time.

Epic Asphyxious

As beautiful weather continues here, painting production stays down. That's fine. This week, one more chip away at the "to be finished" pile. Here is Epic Asphyxious, arguably one of Warmachine's strongest Warcasters. On his feat turn, he brings 10 warriors back from the dead (your choice) for one last incorporeal charge attack against the enemy.

There was one fun part to this the middle of his weapon's blade, there is a creepy eye.

Hope you are all having a great summer as well.

'Til next time.

Finally, there's good summer weather up here in Edmonton. The festivals over the past couple of weeks have been excellent, and my wife and I have been enjoying them all.

Of course, this means figure painting has been taking a back seat. In Edmonton, you have to enjoy the warm temperatures while they are here.

So, this week only one figure made it off the hobby table. Absylonia is a Legion of Everblight warlock who excels at running multiple heavy warbeasts.

I'm sticking to my main Legion theme, which is bluish skin and metallic bone extrusions.

She is small, so a pretty quick figure to bang out. When the weather turns, painting production should go up...but I'm not wishing that for anytime soon.

'Til next time.

Dug a little deeper into the "to do" pile again this past week. These guys are Necrotechs for the Cryx faction of Warmachine. They are cheap and perform a couple of good functions. For infantry spam lists, they generate Scrap Thralls out of wreck markers. They repair damaged 'jacks. They are also on medium bases, which are good for blocking tramples and charge lanes.

I used these three guys in a 50-point game with Elliot this week. They were in a prime Asphyxious tier 4 list, and performed great. They helped clog up the middle of the board with Scraps and even got a repair roll off, allowing a Slayer to mess up a couple of Elliot's Man-O-Wars.

'Til next time.
