Monsterpocalypse


Pre Releases at Warmachine Weekend 2018

One of the fun things about traveling to a convention is the early release product. Warmachine Weekend isn't any different, and this year they had some lovely goodies available before the local stores:Marshal General Baldwin Gearhart and Mr. Clogg - I've been looking forward to this release since I read about his backstory back in July , mostly because it's hilarious that he's one of the few Crucible Guard Warcasters who doesn't actually do alchemy. He's just in it for the cool guns they let him shoot.MacKay - She's a tank commander only she's on a train.Railess Interceptor - The train itself! Many people at Warmachine Weekend Plastic Vanguard- a resin release of a warjack that is notoriously terrible to assemble because of it's weird leg stance.Underchief Mire - Frog dude with headdress. I didn't pick any of that up. Why not? I wasn't going to paint or play with any of it that weekend. Last year when I got friends to bring me Northkin models at pre-release it was so I could paint them over the cour

Painting My Martian Menace

The Martian Menace is a faction in Monsterpocalypse reminiscent of classic UFO saucer / War of the World designs. Circular or crescent ships, with a bit of classic sci-fi thrown in with servitor arms on their first monster release. When they were originally released as part of the Monsterpocalypse prepainted collectible miniatures game, they were silver painted over clear green plastic to better show off some glow/energy effects. Recently, one of the Wills from Privateer Press asked for feedback on what he should paint his all new Martian Menace, and my immediate response was to suggest classic War of the Worlds green ships with orange/red glow effects given that was the color I distinctly remember from the classic book cover or maybe a colorized version of the original film. When it came time to paint mine, however, I decided I wanted something decidedly different.First of all, I wanted to maintain some color similarities between my Destroyers. In the new Monsterpocalypse, three factions represent a sin

Hotel Hobbying

My buddy Captain Chris likes to share with his friends photos of his hobby progress from various hotels around the country. Currently he has a boss custom Aiel army that he's painting, warriors with shoufas, and in the past he's also shared pictures of Chaos cavalry all done up while sitting miles away from home.Now, I love playing Warmachine. I've played this game for years and foresee playing it for years more, but when I'm at a convention I think I have limits as to just how many games I can play with any kind of sustained energy. Add to that an extra large table you might have to reach across and suddenly I'm straining my back. One of the draws of conventions I attend are early releases of models that I want to paint being sold directly by companies like Privateer Press (okay honestly it's mostly models sold by Privateer Press, but there are others). And since models can often be bought cheaper elsewhere after their regular release, both in shops and online, I find that part of the calculus behind pu

Brave Customs Officer Delayed Monsterpocalypse: Ultimately Fails to Save City

I never played the first wave of Monsterpocalypse. Despite wonderful reviews and a solid fan base it was not for me. Random boxes in miniature games were all the rage at the time and my rage was leveled at them. Magic: The Gathering should have just stayed in its lane and not infected the greater gaming industry…but that is a completely different post. This, oh this, is a look at the brand new and improved, dropping today, MONSTERPOCALYPSE! Some brave customs officer threw his or herself into the line of fire forcing the delay until today. These beasts cannot be stopped and more are coming! GenCon is always my favorite place to find my next gaming fix. While there, two long and comparatively game-less months ago, it was this beautiful man that introduced me to the joy of building crushing beneath the bodies of kaiju inspired monstrosities! Oh a wonderful wizard Oz is! A quick demo sold me on the mechanics and one look at Brewgrosh (Cthugrosh sculpted by Doug Hamilton and the Beer-Swilling con-exclusive
