Long story short...
I have grown tired of warhammer. Not so much the models or fluff. Both of which i love even. However i have grown incredibly tired of the game itself. I'll not open up the can of worms that is my reasons for the 40k hatred. Suffice to say my dislike of the game has continued to grow through out 5th edition in spite of my hopes that 5th ed would cure all.
I still continue to play but its more of an excuse to hang out with guys and go to the bar after game night then actually play the game.
A game that corrects just about everything i don't like about warhammer. Only downfall. That's right, the rules of the game and bussiness practices of the company actually makes sense. The models are cheap to get if you pick them up second hand. And the motto of the game is "play like you got a pair."
There are only 5 armies in warmachine (soon to be 6). Of all the model ranges my favorite was cygran. Though it is a 100% metal range.
I have seen a few conversions but for the most part i think because of the entire metalness of the model range the conversions are limited. I don't like that. So i started tonight with a model i picked up secondhand. He is a warcaster (Similar to a HQ in 40k).
He used to have a double handed sword. But i figured 2x 1 handed swords is better then 1x 2h handed. Well maybe not better, but definitely cooler looking. I also added some pasticard shoulder pads and repositioned the arms a bit. I need to carve up the green stuff on him and might add some more. Call him 80% done.
