Agathon, the Voice in the Darkness

Everyone refers to Agathon as "it," so we'll not assume its anything here othe rthan to say that it is a Master among the Infernals. Like the other Infernal masters, Agathon sits on a large base, making it an easy target aside from the fact that it likes to summon horrors every turn.In the latest update, they gave it Dark Mysteries. If you kill a Marked Soul (one of the ubiquitous cultists, perhaps) in its considerable 18" control area, Agathon gets to cast a spell for free. To me that means that it will like having Cultists on the table. Like, a lot of Cultists. Like, enough Cultists that you have to kill one if you can.The spells Agathon can cast are a strange swiss army knife of abilities. It can can cast Censure, a form of dispel that can be countered by taking damage. Curse of shadows as an armor debuff. Nuke from 12" with Dark Fire. Control with Dark Seduction. Nuke with Hellmouth.Agathon can cast Teleport out of activation.They seem to have taken Hellbound away from Agathon, though, so now casting a Da

Empire! Of! The! Apes!

We now have a date for the Empire of the Apes release: June.So we all know what I'll be doing in June. That's right. Going ape...stuff. Paintin apes and takin names.I have no clue if it will be effective, but I'll be playing Apes and Dinos and Robots and Ninjas and and......this game is ridiculous. I'm so glad Monsterpocalypse went the way of being a hobby game.I mean, those unit apes are using field artillery as rifles! How sweet is that! My Trollbloods should ever be so quirkyConsider me distracted in part by this upcoming release and still I don't know what to prep or bring to Adepticon. .

All the Infernals!

It's been a long week, so I'm just going to photodump (i.e. steal and share) all the concept art from the Infernals CID. I have yet to sit down and really look at what they can do, mostly because there was a large hullaboo over one of the theme forces (maybe more on that tomorrow). Future topics include: OMFG Agathon looks amazing and playing him will probably get me killed, Omodamos is Much the Same as Agathon, crab dudes are amazeballs.

Preview: Infernal Horrors

Doug Hamilton, digital sculptor for Privateer Press, called dibs on sculpting the heavy monsters for Warmachine's upcoming Infernal faction, and he talked about it on youtube.Ignore the size differences between these two pictures. They are the same sized model, just two variants. I just suck at taking screen caps. The difference in size is probably attributable to me selecting a larger box for the ranged heavy on the bottom.One thing is for sure. Some friends were calling these models Convergence + Legion, but it's pretty clear to me that they are their own thing. Legion warbeasts have more plating, honestly, and this thing if it looks anything like Legion might take some style decisions from Incubi in that it appears to be literally bursting out of its own skin.And any four legged upright torso monster will resemble some of the Convergence heavies in that it will have four legs (duh) and also have thin llower body supporting an exaggerated upper body (standard style heavy warbeast/warjack) .I do want to pain
