He is completely, unbelievably, undeniably, holistically, and McBainably ridiculous.
And I wouldn't have it any other way. I think this fiine chap alone will make me want to start a Merc army.
Ah, the first non- Dwarf proper merc caster (the only other proper one being Gorten (the pirates are pirates, Ash and Mags have agendas and Durgen just likes to blow stuff up).

More stuff to paint.
(Like I need more... *sigh*)
Well, color me happy.
I'm thinking that he may not be a "Steelhead" as in having that name in his title/description (which would cut out schenanigains with Brocker and Tactician), but from the little bit of background given, he sounds very much in line with the Steelhead mentality.
I wouldn't be surprised if his Tier list was Steelhead themed, allowing you to field a whole force of 'professional' mercenaries.
So yes, i think Privateer Press has given me a Steelhead Warcaster, without giving me a 'Steelhead' Warcaster.
And do I really have to wait till June? C'mon!
The model looks simple and rugged, everything you would expect from a mercenary. I like it and can't wait for release. I'm not even worried about what he does. I think I might need another mangler though...
Ok, I hope I'm going to need another mangler.
do hordes factions count as "nations" when it comes to who he'll work for? I have a need to have this guy fighting alongside my legion :|
He kinda looks like the Khador mechanic...just sayin
but very cool, can't wait to see what he does.

Remember, it says that he'll work for any of the nations in the Iron Kingdoms. Neither the Hordes factions or Ios technically are part of the 'Iron Kingdoms'.

Do I get to complain if he doesn't work for Retribution ? The fluff said so!
Also, he looks cool from the front, but that stance, nearly bow-legged, from the sides? Looking ridiculous. Also, you don't fire a gun with your legs like this... maybe his warcaster armour really boosts his strength.
Warcaster armor boosts everyone's strength.
Also, he needs a hat.

I do not work for Privateer Press. I am a volunteer. They don't send me paychecks, I don't have a desk in some corner of the warehouse, and I do not have Matt or Jason's phone numbers. I don't even live in the same time zone. If you ask me something related to how they do things, I'm probably going to refer you to Simon, Doug, or the 'email Privateer' option on the front page.
Now I need a version in a stripped down sleeveless shirt, with no shoes, and maybe even the Fireman pants.
And let the forums explode
About time too! Finally a real straight up merc.
IS HE A STEELHEAD?!

Josh, the emphasis should've been on "really", I thought of typing, "Like eStryker"
Still, you should look at someone firing a rifle. Even when you don't really feel it, when you look at someone else you can see how far back their shoulder moves. Yes, it's a gun, but the recoil on those old things, with one outstretched hand?
Still, ridiculous pose.
Or we'd get a painted version of figures we previously only received bare-metal spoilers of...
What I want is a new Hordes rules update
in one word: huzzah.
Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them.
And some are given a chance to climb, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

Actually of all the new Warcaster models - Sloan, the creepy Menoth guy, Venerax and Strakov - I think that MacBain easily tops them all in sheer appearance. This guy is unbelievably awesome looking.
Looks great. Cool concept, and just what mercs needed, a "Mercs merc". He is suffering a bit from "troll hands" though. I'm tempted to give him a beret.
young man! there's a place you can go I said young man!

This dude just reminds me of that tune... don't know why. If you spin him in the 3D viewer, you can see it pretty good.
