Generally Awesome...

     Privateer, by way of BoLS, has released the theme list for the new Rhulic warcaster, General Ossrum and as the Pointer Sisters put it, "I'm so excited." As dwarves are my favorite fantasy race in just about any game system, and as I have a good number of mercenary dwarves for warmachine already, I'll most likely be picking up a copy of this model as soon as he's available. He may even be one of my first GenCon purchases if he's out by then (after I secure a copy of the IKRPG of course). The closer we get to GenCon, the more I feel I cannot wait.

In the air, it's a bird, it's....

     It's BiiiirdMan!
     I really want to pick one of these up when they come out as the model looks fantastic. I just really don't like the little guy on paper. If he was just a tad stronger, or faster, or had a higher mat, or charged for free, or something... I just can't really convince myself to pick him up in his current state. I really think, had he been given a point or two more of speed that I'd be fine with him. That said, I still really dig the model and can't wait to see if/how those wings get used in conversions for other models.

Down the pipe...

     One of my new favorite minis is coming out soon from the fine folks at Privateer Press. As a player of both the Blindwater Congregation and Circle, I'm really looking forward to this 3 point utility solo. Granting a unit both undead and tough? Now there's a guy I want running around with my voodoo gators throwing mojo here and there. As if the Gator Posse wasn't already built like a brick house. Throw in a guy who can tag along behind them and increase their survivability, and can then turn them into Pow 16 missiles? Color me excited. And here I thought I was done building on my gator force for a while. Ah well, back to the wishlist. Looks like I still need this guy, Wrong Eye and Snapjaw, a second gator posse and a feralgeist or two. Might as well add Maelok to the list of models to pick up while I'm at it.
