Concept artwork for the new Troll unit, Warders as I recall. Basically meant as a more defensive unit of Champions. Because those weren't hard enough to kill already.

Hello Shield Wall. That won't be annoying with a KSB behind it or anything...

Are we thinking Armor 22 or so? I wouldn't be surprised if they had something similar to the MoW Demo Corp when it comes to their abilities. Something to either give them additional die, or 2 swings... I wouldn't mind both... but then again, that's what Champs are for

If they do get shields and shield wall, I'd expect ARM 24ish. They'd have to do something to make them stand out more from the Champs to offset the loss of damage output.

It all depends on the base armor of the unit.

If they use the base armor of the Trollkin champions as the starting point, we'll probably see Shield Wall, but probably won't see Defensive Line (since Shield Wall does the same thing). So we're looking at Armor 20. Add in a KSB and we've got armor 22.

The only way they'll most likely hit higher than that is if they have a higher base ARM than the Champions do.

And on my note of Demo Corp like attacks, we probably won't see that, but we might see weapon master and reach (believe it said reach in the video). I can see them being closer to the Cetrati from Skorne. Decent Str, MAT, low-ish DEF, and ARM 16 with Reach, Weapon Master, Shielf Wall and Tough... probably at roughly the same cost as the Cetrati since I can see them not getting CMA for Tough, but who knows.

I can see Defensive Line and Shield Wall going together.

However, I think more likely the presence of the shield gives
the Troll a base ARM 17 and then they get either Shield
Wall or Defensive Line.

Shield tend to give +1 base Arm, and then likely they'll get Shield Wall. Probably Reach and Weapon Master as well, but no way to get two attacks or they'd be straight up better than Champions.

edit; No way to get extra attacks that couldn't also be applied to give Champions three attacks.

Three is generally overkill for Champions unless someone gives you space to Overtake around thanks to Skaldi.

Got some (poorly lit) pictures of the new Skorne unit for ya. They're the master figs so they're a bit thicker to account for mold/casting shrinkage.

This. Greatest Warmachine event in the US next to Lock and Load in my opinion. We got DC (lead Dev), Ed (guy in charge) and two others I don't really know from PP. As they work for them they get unreleased and/or preproduction stuff to add to their personal collections and bring em along. I totally kicked DC's arse in a pick up game, but that might have been his string of 6+ ones in a row from Galleon one turn.

Jason Martin and Ron Kruzie

Jason played a game against gdaybloke. They went eFeora/Judicator
vs. Ossyan/Hyperion. It was a pretty fun game to kibbitz. At one point
Jason was thinking out loud about song of battle vs. safe passage. I
pointed out that Ret's ranged weapons were magical.

"Feth!"

Apparently he had been using safe passage and gdaybloke had been
not shooting the 'jacks.

I ran away at that point.

I'm not sure what his actual job is. I know he used to be the convention
coordinator, but he's not that anymore.

Couple updates.

Rask's sac ability is the same as the Exemplar Errant Senechal's, so it's remove one to ignore any amount of overkill damage.

Alpha is 3pts, Blood Drinker is Granted, and Rapid Strike is Tactics.
