i'd say "just like a rat"...

 ...only the ship's not sinking.

i am, however, jumping ship.  i've been a little bored with the stuff i've been working on for games workshop for a while now.  that doesn't mean that i won't pick it back up later, but right now i've got to do something new.

so i've decided to build a force for privateer press' warmachine.

even though bad guy (insert air quotes) armies don't usually appeal to me, i picked up the new plastic cryx battlegroup,

one of the new plastic helljacks,

and the rulebook. 

i've already got the battlegroup painted and ready to play.  and i'm going to make a vow with this game:

"i do solemnly affirm that i will not purchase more warmachine products until i have what i currently own fully painted and have played at least 5 games."

here are pics of my cryx battlegroup thus far:

the battlegroup cleaned and assembled:

here is the warwitch deneghra and a couple of deathripper bonejacks:

here are the reaper and slayer helljacks.  i did a bit of extra work to the brass "hood" around the head to give each a bit of a different appearance:

the funny thing is that i was able to pump these out pretty quickly, but it's not like the paint scheme is too difficult.

keep an eye out here for future warmachine updates!


  1. Looking good! I need to get more of my Warmachine stuff painted.

  2. Those are some awesome paint jobs!

    I intend to "jump ship" after school is out. I'm dumping all of my 40k stuff. I just don't have time for it and grad school will only make that more true. I'll finish Mike's Tau over break and then it's done.

  3. hey jeff,
    small piece of advice: keep one army.

    that way, you'll be able to get back into 40k without dropping a bunch of money at a later date.

  4. It's nice that Warmachine works well with small skirmish type groups. I had a Cryx force for awhile when the game first came out, but gave it to Bill Lim since I hadn't played for few years. The figs are cool enough that I'm always tempted to get back into it.
