Fire Teleforce Cannon? Type Y/N: |
/To be fair, I really did mean Warspears. Back then I thought Warspears were Warmongers back then (my legion friend still calls his Warspears "Warmongers"), and mentioned them as they were the only plastic heavy infantry for legion at the time.
//Does look like a cool box, though two new players have just picked up legion and circle at our club, so they'll be pissed they missed out! Ah well, at least they're into the game now, rather than in 4 months.

Deffo picking up one of these when it is released. Plastic Skinwalkers kills two birds with one stone. I'll get Ghetorix (see below) a Winter Argus and a full unit of Skinwalkers out of this box.
A quick question to the knowledgeable. Is it possible to build Ghetorix using just the parts from the Feral Warpwolf (and the Ghetorix blister)?
Pro tip for PP. Hopefully for the next print run you would consider putting the Warlock/Fury and Warcaster/Focus sections into the mini rulebook. That'd probably save costs at your end and make the book doubly useful by making it a combined Warmachine/Hordes rulebook.
Warmachine: Cryx, 4 Star Syndicate, Highborn Covenant & Magnus - Most Wanted
Hordes: Circle Orboros
I think it should have had the Extreme Carnivean in it though, definitely a missed opportunity.
~Meta: I hold with those who favor
I might lend the Legion minis to my local game store owner, mind you. He's got some Warmachine minis that can be borrowed to teach WM, but no Hordes forces. An oversight I intend to correct. I can always paint them up and use them as the start of a Legion army later.
Quoth the Feral Warpwolf: "MMM BACON!!!"
If all else fails, counterattack. At least you'll go down with dice in your hand.
Lose or win gracefully and with good humor, and you will never lack for opponents.
Always remember the dice hate everyone. That includes you.
What are people's thoughts on the balance of the two sides though? Eyeless sight sort of reduces occultation's usefulness, except for a thin 3" band against warspears, and Kaya's feat and spells don't really do anything for the skinwalkers. Then again, the skin walkers will make for a nice buffer layer, as her battle group continues to hit and run, and with any damage, they'll be able to get the charge on the warspears.
Meanwhile the legion side looks very solid - Lylyths feat on warspears is good, and if she can get parasite onto the warpwolf, the warspears could waste it with just shooting (we'll assume it'll be screened effectively).
Probably reasonably balanced, though I think legion got the better deal with the infantry, especially as Lylyths feat can help them out, where Kaya does nothing for hers.
TheWarStore has it listed for September and they haven't failed yet.
Circle and Legion are the two armies I had my eyes on should I ever start Hordes. Well, now if only I had more disposable income...
Take for instance, the Warmachine 2 player battlebox. 1 caster (he picks things up and puts them down!!!!) knocks the enemy down, and the other makes everything stationary, which is almost the same as being knocked down. Nice and simple. Lylyth's? Powerful and simple. Kaya's? No, not really it don't make too much sense for a new person.
For everyone who is experienced, it's a solid investment if you have none of these models or just want to pick up a new faction.
For the newbies, hope you got a pro behind you circle.
My 2 cents.
I'd like to split this with someone. Personally, I'd both 2-player boxes--and to keep the Circle and PoM. So, I'm looking for someone who'd like K&Legion.
