Kraye’s cool-sounding something-or-other

Posted by Krystal Frazee on August 28, 2008

Captain Jeremiah Kraye
Trencher Chain Gun Crew    [2]

I played Cryx for two years or so, and then took a very long break from playing Warmachine. I got too frustrated with overly-complicated rules and having to remember way too many other models’ abilities. I like the idea of this project, though, because it encourages painting a lot more than finding the “perfect list.” I get to play with models I like.

I don’t have Kraye’s model yet, although I will in a day or so. All I have to go on are the tidbits posted about him in the forums. Kraye was one of those models I absolutely had to have the moment his picture was released, though, because I think it’s the nicest-looking model Privateer Press has put out.  I’d buy him even if his rules were horrible.

As for the other models I’ve chosen, the Grenadier is widely regarded as horrible. I’m rather fond of it, anyway. I’m hoping to at least make some use out of it in my list. Trenchers are for helping out the Grenadier. The Thunderhead, is, well, kind of awesome. The Stormsmith is doomed to run out, hide inside a building, and have the building come crashing down upon him in the most humiliating way possible. But I had a few extra points, so I figured, why not put him in there anyway?

We all start painting our lists on September 1st, and come together and play each other at the end of the month. This is going to be so much fun!

Iron Lich’s Iron Lynch

Posted by diretrolljake on August 25, 2008

Faction: Cryx
Points: 350
Model Count: 9
Victory Points: 13

Iron Lich Asphyxious
Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist
Skarlock Thrall
Withershadow Combine    [3]

My list is based on my newfound love for the Cankerworm and what better way to exploit this little bugger than with his master and creator, Asphyxious ? My plans include corrosion, spell slingin’, and healthy dose of Lich beatdowns.

I have played all factions aside from Cygnar multiple times so I am not aiming for anything special other than fun so don’t expect to see any Bane Knight’s or Bile Thralls unless we go past 750 into the 1k range, even then, I will likely grab something else along the lines of Blackbane and some Deathjack.

Kommander Sorscha’s Rain of Death

Posted by Tom Richter on August 25, 2008

Faction: Khador
Points: 336
Model Count: 8
Victory Points: 14

Kommander Sorscha Kratikoff
Lady Aiyana & Master Holt
Winterguard Mortar Crew
Winterguard Mortar Crew

As you can see I went for a fairly small and simple list to begin with. Being currently out of work I probably could have put in a few extra models without having to worry about the deadline to get everything done by the end of August, but I really want to take some extra time on these models. First of all I’ve never been a fan of the Behemoth model and I’m going to be giving it a serious overhaul. An overhaul I expect to take up a lot of my time in this first month. As a Cygnar player I ran a melee centric Epic Stryker list for quite some time and decided to go with a more ranged approach. I had a hard time deciding what to play until I decided to build up around a solid base of Winterguard. Who better to lead the Winterguard that Kommander Sorscha.

Also I threw in Holt and Aiyana to ensure that I get around to painting them sooner than later.
