I'm really liking those new Tharn. I may have to be bad and buy them for Paleo Diet.

Anything that makes the existing tharn units better can only be a goodthing.

Their description of the grav tank is that it's called the Trident. It's
not done being sculpted and its rules are very much in flux. One
rule that was being tested was a slipstream esque move that
allowed it to place a friendly faction model that it passed near.

Given that the sculpt isn't even done yet, releasing the image might be
premature for them as it might not even be ready to go, and if production
doesn't get ready to go they're not going to go ahead with public rules
development.

I'm going to guess the new tank will be a part of the Dawnguard CID or the next Ret release at least.

I wish I had a reason to buy that because it looks awesome! Another serious take on a mini-crate model that makes me baffled that they'd throw away the casting from such a fantastic sculpt!

Resin/metal so the molds aren't terribly expensive. I'm sure they're keeping the render files...

I really like how PP has been 'expanding' on themes within the factions. Such as the recent Man-0-War stuff for Khador, and these new Tharn models. Its fun to see them go a little deeper with certain pillars of these particular armies, and I hope they continue to do that.

It seems people are pumped about the Infernals. I remember the old RPG minis, so I'll be interested to see what they add to them. I assume they'll be a hordes faction?

Would it be considered 'Jumping the Shark' to bring back some Orgoth as a faction? I don't know what the deal is with them, but I remember thinking about them coming back during the release of Escalation. I'm guessing they would be a Hordes faction, as they seem to not get/like Warjacks.

Do you think they'd ever consider making existing hordes factions with Warcasters/warjacks, and vice versa? It seems like you could fairly easily add warbeasts and Warlocks to any warmachine faction, as the beasts can really be any new kind of animal you would want (well, might not work as well for Convergence...). But with Hordes, there's only a few factions I could see having the ability to use/maintain warjacks. Trollbloods, Piggies, Possibly Everblight. But Circle and the Skorne seem unlikely. Especially since they already use Wood/Stone constructs in their armies.

an oft repeated rumour is that the profits from Warmachine(?) have to be shared with more previous staff members/owners than Hordes (?)…( I think it's this way round but it might be the reverse)

so if they merge the games in any real way the current owners have to start handing over cash they currently keep

how true it is I have no idea

(but having 2 games means more rule book sales for minimal extra development costs compared to what they'd have if they did fully merge them so there's a financial pressure to keep them separate even if the original way the 2 rule sets work are getting more and more blured)

The Infernals are a Warmachine faction. I guess they’ll be like Cephalyx, where they don’t have Warjacks but they don’t use the Fury mechanic so they’re Warmachine.

Supposedly the Infernals will use neither Fury nor Focus. I could see them having a heavy reliance on Souls as a power source given their fluff.

Souls would be tricky as that would imply that they can only gain power by killing; a neat mechanic but one with issues since it would mean that the only way to get the army rolling out its powers would be to have already killed a number of the enemy; which implies that the army must already be working.

It would also have serious problems against armies with more beasts/machines and less troops or against forces taking a lot of heavier troop types (and thus fewer in number); whilst against an army of spammed warriors it would have an unfair advantage.

Instead fury, focus and the wind-up that Convergance use are all internal to the army itself. Whilst they are influenced by the enemy, they don't require the enemy to generate power to use. Therefore they work equally well against any type of opponent. I could see them working with souls if they have their own units to sacrifice, but then again if the whole army revolves around putting modles down and then removing them it might not be as fun to play if you're taking half your own models off the table.

Infernals have been collecting Souls for some time so I could see them starting the fight with some and/or a battery to draw from, but then having to collect some more to maintain momentum. Opponents who bring few troops could be a problem, but they’re also hindering themselves in Steamroller where you’ve gone zones that can only be held by units.

True but also don't forget some armies don't even drop many if any soul tokens. Again I feel that magic generation mechanics work best when they are internal to an army rather than reliant on an external status of the enemy. It's a really neat idea, but at the same time makes balance a nightmare

Why keep that cool new sculpt for Eiryss for sale when you can keep peddling this super dated hunk of crap:

A few of the Lesser Warlocks work for Warmachine factions. Rorsch, Wrongeye, etc. On the flip side, Ralluk is a Trollkin jack marshal that works for Hordes that lets you take Merc jacks with them if you really want to.

Wow! I've NEVER heard that. And I've been playing Warmachine since 2004! Crazy if true. I guess I assumed that if Khador had Warlocks, they'd be Warmachine models, since they'd use Warmachine troops, but, this would certainly cause a debate at PP HQ.

Yeah, I went back and watched the Keynote after writing that. Should be interesting to see how they do it. I thought the two Wills were great live in the Keynote BTW. Which is strange, because the Monsterpocalypse video is just SO full of transparent excitement. Too bad, they're a good team.

I have all of these guys, and I LOVE them! I really wish they'd do more of the Lesser warlocks, as they were really fun, and (at the time) had very unique beasts, which was cool. Would love to see more of them, with even WILDER creatures. (why is there no Minotaurs in Caen?, they have almost every other man-beast). And lesser warcasters like Ralluk, would be fun, especially if they had unique weird jacks that added some interesting stuff to the game.

With the official launch of the Tauros, I keep hoping we'll get Rex and Rutgar Shaw as something similar to this in the future.
