On the other hand it'll be a tough call between fielding Dirtyboot Potatoe or Sweet Lard Goopy Tudor. They both fill such similar rolls!

I'd feel worse about it if the IKRPG hadn't been so horrid. What works in a wargame doesn't work for an RPG. Especially if you want to keep PCs alive through a single encounter without an absurd amount of min/maxing.

5e is a little boring, but at least it isn't a struggle to keep a party intact long enough to have a campaign.

Obviously people's views on rules are different, I liked them, but PC survivability wouldn't be something I'd ever expect to be an issue in that game as you get points to spend on healing all over the place.

General character creation spits out characters with DEF and ARM around 12. Maybe 14 if you push it. With extreme system mastery you can forgo lots of other necessary things to have one up at around 16 or 17. Enemy MAT, RAT and POW make those numbers trivially easy to beat, so PCs are constantly going down if you're anything by the book.

This is much like the wargame (unsurprising since its a minor adaption), but for an RPG, I find that non-tenable.
Like many of the WHFRPGs, I find the endless parade of incompetence uninteresting and terribly unfun.

That is the exact opposite of my experience and I ran it for years. As players kill things they get feat points to heal back up and do other things. But to each his own. My group breaks 5E easily too. They took out a CR 14 dragon at level 6 in one turn (party of 5).

The new Monpoc stuff looks great. Riot Quest is whatever but the sculpts are injecting some great variety into Warmachine. Still not sold on Warcaster, but the latest announcements look like they'll really help the game feel fleshed out and give the factions some identity to get people off the fence.

Announcement Video 3: Monsterpocalypse




Drakan Armada - Protectors Faction of Space Dragons
*Zybanos- Classic two headed dragon. Got Flank and Spotter and ultimate weapon rules.
*Rastaban- Monster that does Power dice manipulation. Strafe- Fires off stuff from his wings that hit multiple targets?

Zerkalo Bloc - Destroyers Faction of Russian Invaders from Another Dimension
*Evil/Cold War reflection of the G.U.A.R.D.
*Voyaka first look.

Legion of Mutates - Protectors Faction of giant animals (especially animals not already represented)
*Kasander/Kysander (spelling) giant lion man. Monster.
*Other monsters planned include a Wolf and a Rhinoceros
*Other animals scattered throughout the faction
*Scientists who have found out how to alter people to fight the Monsterpocalypse (process described as taking a pill)
*Bashers are frontline unit (Hippos)
*Blasters are elephants with Rocket Launchers
*Other pop culture/animal stuff

Masters of the 8th Dimension - Destroyers Faction of really weird geometry
*Deeper reality - 9th Dimensionals move between universes, so this is the 8th dimension (I don't quite get it)
*Pinpointed the Monsterpocalypse as a main conflict, so they want to smooth things out.
*Voider - Ranged unit that is a sphere with weird shapes spin around it.
*Facilitator - Specialist unit in the blister. Seems like a support model. Distracted by talk of taking pills to become an elephant with a rocket launcher.
*Preceptor Monster - no real talk about what this does yet.

Oz's plan goes out to end of 2021.
*Hints at a bee/wasp monster.
*Combiners perhaps
*Buildings for factions without factions.

Maybe I'm just getting used to Riot Quest's aesthetic, but I really like most of the Winter Wonderland models. With the first season, I either loved or hated the models, with nothing in between. In s2, I like or love most of the models, and don't actively hate any of them. I still don't know that I'd feel comfortable using them in Warmachine because they are so theme-breaking - it's kind of like including the Wonder Twins in The Dark Knight Returns.
