Perhaps Nemo’s greatest creation, the Stormwall towers over Cygnar’s enemies with all the majesty and menace of a looming cloudburst. From the thunder of its guns to the blinding cracks of arcing electricity from its lightning pods, the Stormwall is the mechanikal embodiment of the tempest. Powered by both steam and surging voltaic energy, it riddles the enemy lines with cannon shells and hails of bullets before smashing survivors with its electrified fists.

Makes me question my allegiance to Khador. Are those lightning pods launchable arc nodes, or weapons? Either way it is crazy cool.

If you factor in a 20% discount form online retailers, it puts the colossals at $108. Certainly not chump change, but damn would they make a nice centerpiece!

Pfft - says who? I was hoping for the $115-125 range. Which would be a much better price point (as, with internet discounts, they would fall the the 100 price point - you get above $99 for a single mini, even a large one, and I get a lot pickier).

It's a great model, but that is a serious chunk of change. I eagerly await the Merc one so I can make my decision then.

If this translates to £100 that's excellent value. Though to be fair to GW as well the stompa is excellently priced and they should make more of that price point and size kits, after all it's not like they're short of ideas. Though PP has integrated super heavy size "things" into there main game system far better than GW. I'm sure some enterprising gamers will be using the Khador one as a source of cheap warhound titans.

They're purposefully made to not be "must take". They explain this in the video for them.

That was just based on the current exchange rates from xe.com BTW I'd expect it to be £90 TBH.

The design of this one breaks down for me: the gun workings (which would be sizabe considering the caliber those barrels suggest) and shoulder workings would have to ccupying the same space...

Not to mention the chain gun workings stuffed into that shoulder same real eastate to boot...

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

I'm with CT on this one. It's another example of a Jack where it just has cannon barrels sticking out of its shoulders with no real thought given to how such a weapon would be fired or loaded, or even where the ammunition would be kept. The Gatling guns are ok, and might have been better mounted on the hips, but those cannons just don't work.

Hmm...

Sounds like 'shells' to me.

And what is your point really?

I don't think I ever claimed the Russ was a realistic design.

Ths isn't a PP vs. GW thing.

Many of the models by both companies are unrealistic, but some make their design seem more plausible then others.

This model fails at it, compared to other warjack designs that do a better job at plausible design.

In fact PP had a series of Guts & Gears articles in NQ in which they had exploded diagram drawings of their warjacks, guns, armor, etc. So apparently they think it is an important thing to consider as well...

Very typical PP fan behaviour. If someone criticize PP just say that GW is worse.

I prefer Warmachine but I'm so tired of this.
