Mid Cornwall Gaming Demo and Warmachine News!

Wow, its been a while since Ive posted a blog here. But theres a reason. Still recoovering from finding out Im going to be a Daddy!
This gives me an excuse to start a new Faction (for the little one obviously) lol

So, Last night I ran a demo night at Mid Cornwall Gaming Group. Based at Mad for Miniatures in St.Austell.
There were quite afew people there but most were playing cards games (MTG ect) or late games in thier WHFB escalation league.
That didnt stop some decent interest in Warmachine and Hordes though.
Arrived a 6pm to set up and layed out a split table for the demos.
One half had Khador v Cryx and the other had Legion v Circle.
A couple of people came for a look and soon enough we had our first demos running.
You can tell they go well when someone puts down the dice and walks right over to the shelves to buy a Legion of Everblight starter set. (Matt! Hannah didnt look very happy with you. lol)

After afew demo games it started to quiet down towards the end of the night.
Most of the players had gone home but there was still half an hour until the club closed.
Everyone else was finishing off thier games which left Matt and myself hanging around.
I always have my Talion Charter Mercs with me when running a demo just to show afew more models in the range. Matt had his 35pts of Khador he had built after getting hooked playing Warmachine at my last demo day at Mad for Miniatures. He issued the challenge.
35 pts hit the table. Seeing there was only about 30mins left we only had  turns each. But those 2 turns hurt!
A whole unit of dead Sea Dogs closely followed by Aiyana and Holt.
Vlad will be alot more weary of the Commodore Cannon next time though.
And there will be a next time!!!!!

This morning I had messages from one of the demo players telling me he is getting the Cryx starter box and Deathjack. Another one hooked! Mwah ha ha!

All in all it was a great night. And I look forward to going back to the store and playing the new forces that have been started.

Next week - TAGS demo night. Truro

3 nice juicy morsals for you today.

To start with we have the new Cryx Battle Engine
The Wraith Engine!
I love it! And will be fitting it into my Cryx Pirates force as soon as I can get my grubby little hands on it.
Head over to the Privateer Press site to veiw a full 360 rotation of this epic creation.

Next up we have the cover of the new expansion Warmachine: Wrath
And a better look at the artwork for good measure.

The Insider blog over on the Privateer Press main page has given us a couple of names aswell.
Featured are Lord Exhumator Scaverous at the head of the Cryxian army, his helljack Erebus by his side, squaring off against Constance Blaze, the Morrowan warjack Gallant, and the forces of Cygnar.
But there seems to be a couple more new things in there aswell.
Check out the centre left for a horned, buzzsaw weilding Cryx Crabjack. Maybe a third on the Leviathan/Harrower chasis that could mean a plastic multipart kit in the future?

And to finish off todays post we have the new releases for Warmachine in June

* PP1106N Cygnar Long Gunner Infantry (10 white metal)
* PIP31010 Cygnar Long Gunner(2)
* PIP31018 Cygnar Long Gunners Unit (6)
* PP1106N Cygnar Constance Blaize, Knight of the Prophet (1 white metal)
* PP1106N Protectorate of Menoth Thyra, Flame of Sorrow (1 white metal)

Long Gunners. Repackage or resculpt? What do you think?
Epic Alexia! Cant wait to see what shee looks like and does.
