Whats the Warmachine news then????
(yes I heard you)

First off we have the Retribution of Scyrah Heavy Rifle Team

The cannons used by the heavy rifle teams of the houseguard are deadly effective pieces of Iosan ordnance. The heavy rifle crews are adept at picking apart enemies from well across the battlefield, and the heavy bolts fired by their cannons can penetrate thick armor with appalling ease.

I love it! I have been umming and ahhhing about restarting my RoS force. But this makes me want to go for it. I want to take things down with a real big gun!. (But hope I never face it!)
The rules can also be found in the current issue of No Quarter #35.

Next up we have a nice scale shot of the Cryx Wraith Engine and the Cygnar Storm Strider from Adepticon 2011
Being next to a selection of different models it really shows the pure size of these creations. They are HUGE! Cant wait until I start to see them on the field of battle,

On a personnal note Im still having abit of Faction ADD. And SMS (shiny model syndrome)
Currently Im working on
Mercs: Talion Charter , almost 150pts of Pirates. 1 unit and 3 Jacks left to get. Until Wrath anyway
Cryx: Pirates. Just gained my Casters to add to my undead pirate units
Minions: Blindwater Gators. Nice size of around 35 pts at the mo. So many more I want though.
Minions: Thornfall Farrow. Just started but cant wait to 'Let slip the HOGS of war!'

And in the planning stages
Mercs: Searforge Dwarves + afew other Mercs to play about with Four Star and Highborn

And to finish off, I discovered this week I have a couple of high ranking PP/Cerberus staff readers. Hello to you!
