Archons


Dhunian Archon CID Week 2

I know there's a lot in the CID aside from the Dhunian Archon, but if you know me you know I don't care. MAYBE I'll look at the Primal Archon a little bit, but I don't have a ton of time to even test/theorize the one for my faction. So let's go over some of the changes.REDUCED COST - This one is kind of an okay, we're going to acknowledge that maybe she's not as effective as we though, but you Trollbloods players won't care because she'll be free. Enjoy! I shouldn't get too excited because the points cost reduction means she'll be more accessible outside of our faction to Circle Players, and the thought of someone with Ravagers using her gives me chills because of the change toTHREADS OF LIFE - They changed the Martyrdom ability to be more like Severius's Vision or Madrak1's Scroll. You straight out cancel one attack per turn. The wording on this means you're probably not using this on your own turn trying to keep Fire Eaters alive (something I was planning on testing with a Hooch Hauler on Thursday

Previews: Archons So Far

Privateer Press has been leaking images of their Archons so far. At least the concept art. They've been doing this on their instagram account by releasing the images in 6 images that go together into a single image.If you've seen the instagram preview page you know that there are six preview shots that just so happen to line up perfectly if you send out the images just so. Anyway, that's the reason for the one gutters between some of the images below. Each image (maybe except the Morrowan one) was leaked with some kind of ominous text. I don't have any of that here.Except this one. I think the Morrowan Archon was leaked as an entire picture somewhere else. If you play Warmachine, you're familiar with the Morrowan iconography on the weapon and shield and belt. Pretty standard angelic fare. "I AM GROOT."The Primal Archon was leaked and the figure pretty much fits the description given. ("Walking mountain.")The Thamarite Archon is pure archer and also the most "angelic" looking archon with little to no

Warmachine Oblivion Previews: CID next Wednesday April 17!

Today's DevChat there was a lot of spoiling of information for Warmachine: Oblivion. According to Hungerford and Olsen, they have the Community Development (playtesting) set to start next week Wednesday, April 17, provided that Oz can come back from KingdomCon in one piece (that last part is conjecture on my part).The first part of the spoiler was the three themes that were going to go live with Oblivion.Theme 1: Hearts of DarknessHearts of Darkness has been adjusted from its original wide open play. the word they used was "controversial." They haven't said which casters would be in the theme, but they announced the factions: 1 each from Cygnar, Protectorate, Khador, Crucible Guard, Merc, Cryx? (Not sure about Cryx, I must have missed it, but I'm reading Cryx in other people's notes, so I'll add that here.As part of this, there's a lot of conjecture as to how they will select casters. Like, how thematic will they get with this release or are they looking to push specific playstyles from each faction?It's unli
