WM- Cryx

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

Battle: Syvestro vs. the Iron Lich

Round 1 of the Steamroller last Saturday I played James MacLeod who brought Cryx. Looking at his pairing I figured I'd have the best chance with my Syvestro list without thinking about the implications. Then when I looked and saw that he had some 20+ feedback attacks that could attack my warjacks and kill my casters, I knew I had problems.Storm Troopers weren't really going to help with that problem.

It would be far easier for James to remove the Vanguards and prospero with feedback whips.I went first and made aggressive moves that didn't endanger my 'jacks to Backlash. Superfuel means the Vulcan and Vanguards get a 16" run.I feated to clear as many Satyxis with sprays as I could and suddenly a Feedback assassination was off the table. Syvestro has 15 boxes, at most he had maybe 6-7 Satyxis left. I probably should have sprayed first to t

Cryx Collection 2018

534 points132 modelsCryx has some of my favorite display level pieces like the floating half pirate ship piloted and crewed by Satyxis and souls (skarre3), undead dragon thing mounted by an undead war witch who's the twin sister of a time lord (deneghra3), angry warjack with skulls that eventually turn any warjack into itself (deathjack).And I dont even have the new death jack painted yet. That guy is beautiful.What's missing is an actual desire to play with them. I was quite fond of skeleton with a sword (lich lord venethrax), but I didnt want to play.My original cryx collection was picked up because I wanted to deliver stalkers with skarre1...but that was back in mk1.In fact, I still have a second wraith engine I wanted to paint as I have many of the pieces needed for a skarre1 dark host army.I think my future goals will be to paint my current stuff, and look to see what else I need. The newer skarre1 model might get me to paint things up, and I did enjoy painting the scharde pirates (complete with moana's
