Mercenaries go some fun toys this month. I got them to stand still long enough to get these pics.
Pirates? That are also goblins? Where do I sign up? While their packaging says Mercenary these guys are also Minions. I never know how they decide what part of the store wall these guys are going to hang in. They work for more Hordes factions than Warmachine ones. Well, I guess if you count Talion charter as a faction it’s a tie.
Unfortunately this pack came with two of the same heads. Oh well. If the same thing should happen to you Privateer has a pretty great parts replacement department They look pretty great though so I don’t plan on requesting the other one.
Gobber? More like Boglin. No not Bogrin I’m talking about these things from the eighties. I wonder what ever happened to the ones I had as a kid.
You’d think from the hat that this is the guy in charge, but they’re solos. Each one is in charge of himself.
A lot of detail for such a small guy.
He even has a flask of grog.
This guy has some things he’d like to axe you.
What are all the little vials for.
Must have took an arrow to the knee.
Seriously why do all these guys have vials? I even checked their rules to see if it would offer an explanation. Maybe They’re just silk wrapped powder charges for the harpoon gun.
Whereas the River Pirates had kind of a silly feel to them, the Cognifex here is pure sinister evil.
Lot of pieces for this kit. Fortunately it’s not as complicated as it seems. All those sharp bits go into the sockets on the torso.
The Cognifex’s torso is covered in cool details.
The back as well.
It’s even worth showing a close-up of the side so you can take it all in.
His carapace even has all these cool details that no one will ever see once the model has been assembled.
Here are half of Cyphon’s ten arms. The other half are the same.
Finally there’s the head. Do Cephalyx bump into doorways a lot or…?
~ Well – this batch of releases provides some reinforcements for two highly restrictive Mercenary Contracts. Both Talion Charter and Puppet masters get something new this month. I know the Cephalyx are still quite popular but are there still any of those rare pirate only players out there who are thrilled over the Gobbers?
