A Druid Lich, a Demonic Monkey, a flying Megazord : it must be Privateer Press Previews

A lot can happen in a week. Or even just a day. I was just done writing about the Butcher4 preview when Privateer Press decided to drop another few leaks.''There was a lot of speculation about this model when he came out. The document reads 30mm base, he looks like he has Iron Kingdoms style Druidic armor, and he looks like he's flying in the pose, but it turns out he's not a Krueger at all.He's a lich.And around his feet isn't just normal dust getting kicked about from takeoff. That's fel flames boosting his rockets.In the background, the origins of Iron Lich Asphyxious are that he was once a Druid who wanted to get the attention of the dragon Toruk, so he jumped into a volcano. ("Notice me senpai!" is one of my favorite lines when explaining this to people). He died and was reborn the Iron Lich.Turns out that 30mm base was a typo, and Chad, our local Circle Player, is not happy at all.Cryx players are though. The Iron Lich models are pretty janky with a metal spear haft that breaks too easily. Not sure if t

The Butcher4 - Orsus the Chained Preview

Previews drop like bombs and communities explode. This time Matt Wilson himself of Privateer Press shared an art concept advancing the story for one of the biggest characters in the Iron Kingdom, Orsus Zoktavir, aka The Butcher, and now everyone is speculating what he will do or what his final miniature will look like. If you don't follow Warmachine or Khador, the Butcher is one of the most brutal characters in the story of Warmachine. His original version is rather simple. Make himself and his army hit harder, even with their guns!, than anything has a right to do so. When his story advanced, he appeared to lose his mind even further and would kill friend and foe alike as he whirlwinded up the battlefield with his axe Lola in hand. In his third iteration, the Butcher made friends with a pair of dogs he brought onto the battlefield which seemed to turn him into a sharper, craftier individual...who would murder anyone who got in his way.Privateer Press even went so far as to make an alternate sculpt for t

Doug Hamilton's New Year's Day Preview for Minicrate

In a year in review/preview image on the Privateer Press Insider, a small dog can be seen among the other digital sculpts feature. The models in the image come from all over the Privateer Press line. There's an image of the future model Boomhowler2, a troll armed with a chaingun, and there's an image of a Meatslave released from Monsterpocalypse.Included in this "family portrait" of models was  a small dog that everyone wondered what it was for.Was this a new Riot Quest solo?A unit attachment for Circle Orboros (who have the most dog-like things in the game, just bigger).A resculpt of the Khadoran War Dog?Turns out it was a little of B and a little of C. On New Year's Eve Privateer Press's 3D sculptor Doug Hamilton announced that he would spoil whatever the goodest boy was if he got 100 unique likes across the faction facebook groups. The next day, everyone was in a panic looking for the post, and then Doug posted the picture above.It's a minicrate model. Minicrate is Privateer Press's alternate sculpt l

Matt Explains Artbook Kickstarter

The other day, Matt Wilson explained why they were going to use Kickstarter as a vehicle for the release of their artbook, even though it's "just" a collection of previously released artwork:Art books, however, are not a product that has traditionally been a staple offering of game distributors and game stores... As an art book is an expensive undertaking, we have been cautious about producing something unlikely to receive a reception through our traditional distribution channels and that might fail to justify its expense and effort. This makes sense to me. Every art book I've ever flipped through or purchased has been picked up at a bookstore, not at the gamestore. And usually those books were intellectual properties with wider appeal than a specialist hobbyist miniature wargame like Warmachine (unsure if this is meant to be all ips from Privateer Press or just warmachine). For instance, Game of Thrones and Blizzard have larger audiences than the far more niche Warmachine.However, Privateer Press probab

Judgement Previews 2019

News update for the game Judgement: Gunmeister Games has laid out their release plans for 2019, and the plans include what looks like about 4 models and a few other things for their MOBA inspired game.At first when I heard them say that their next hero release was going to be Itchynads, the Goblin Hunter, I wanted to know if he was a goblin who hunted, or a hunter of goblins. Then they released an image and rules and it was all made clear.It will be interesting to see how the game continues to take shape. They did a massive kickstarter hero release to where there are over 20 of the 54mm miniatures for the game. To give you an idea, the game is based on 3v3 or 5v5 matchups, so having 20 models is plenty now for what they plan to do. Adding 3-4 models in the course of 12 months might seem small, but the number can be impactful if the models themselves see play or cause others to change what they choose to play. (There are versions of the game that allow for pick and bans when developing your roster, so introduc

The best of this week's previews for ... MARCH???

I swear I will return to posting my own stuff in the near future. It’s just been a busy week of updates and I’m just trying to post about all the awesome stuff.Evidence A:Gamera! I mean Armodax! I mean Gamera!And then there’s this guy. He’s the steelhead Arcanist and the sculpt (a render in this case) looks so promising I know I will buying at least two. I know it seems cheesy (metal punk eye patch wizard) but it resonates with me and I can’t help but get excited.Anyway, I’m typing this on my iPad and that kinda sucks, so tomorrow I will update progress on hobby or games,

Privateer Press Insider Preview for 2019

Yesterday, Matt Wilson of Privateer Press posted an article to Privateer Insider, the self promotional blog on Privateer Press's home page, giving us a preview of what's to come in 2019. And boy it was filled with goodies. Without going on for too long, let's talk about the biggest reveal in the post:That is a comparison shot of a 30mm based model on the left and the first real preview we have of what looks to be a leader model for the Infernals called "Combat Master." If this scale holds up, the Combat Master should sit on a 50mm base. In the render below you can see that it's an Infernal Master, so masters sound like the equivalent of Warcasters or Warlocks in Warmachine and Hordes.In addition, they previewed a warbeast, which looks like a modular-organic Convergence of Cyriss model, and a floating infantry model labeled "Infernal light infantry."I'm excited for this release now as the Masters look like they'll be display worthy pieces, and the weaponry on the Combat Master, at least, looks absolutely bruta

Aeronef Previews

First off, the latest sale update … we’ve shipped all but three orders from November, so I’m currently about four days behind – which isn’t too bad, it means I’m at least keeping up and not slipping any further. I’m hoping that we can repeat last year’s achievement of clearing everything before the Christmas holiday […]

GMG REVIEWS – Infinity N3 Third Offensive

It’s time for another GMG Review! This time it’s Corvus Belli’s newest expansion to Infinity N3, the Third Offensive. Two new armies, three armies revisited and lots of new profiles, units and other fun stuff to add to the game. I’m joined by Owen from Gaming with the Cooler to run down all these great new units and profiles and give our two cents on the possibilities and impacts this will have on the game.   The campaign for the Human Sphere vs. the Combined Army of EI heats up again with new armies, models and profiles! Owen and I both field forces from the new supplement to Infinity N3.
