  • Malifuax did it better

    • Keith Wilson

      and with better paint jobs

      • ZeeLobby

        Eh, the studio paintjobs look fine. The photos above that are a game designer’s personal army.

      • Hell-Nico

        Ho the paints jobs isn’t that bad tbh, but the color scheme is pretty … meh to say the least.

    • ZeeLobby

      Eh, they’ve also been doing it for way longer than PP has. Some of Maulifaux’s original models were quite derpy. Their new ones are amazing though.

      • Severius_Tolluck

        Pretty sure Malifaux is not older than PP, unless you mean the horror element, which again, PP had cryx from the start. Legion even predates Malifaux

        • ZeeLobby

          I meant the kind of dark Halloween element. Cruz are more traditional undead ghosts, not evil trees, pigmen and pumpkin heads, haha.

    • Joel Carrera

      Like a lot of things, I find it to be 6 of one and a half-dozen of the other. Some of Malifaux’s sculpts are so busy that they come across as mini-dioramas. I’m not a fan so much of those. Some of the Malifaux is very good though. I like these as well. Mostly I’m just pleased that I have more minis to get for my pumpkin ‘ead/scarecrow army–which includes models from Malifaux, Reaper, Ral Partha, and Rackham.

  • DeadlyYellow

    Liking most of the models so far (rattler isn’t that great but whatever.)

    Kinda feel the witchwood should have been separate models though.

    • ZeeLobby

      Would have been cool to have a 2-pair model, kind of like wurmwood. Allow them to teleport around together, etc.

      • Joel Carrera

        I imagine I will base them separately. Not going to make a tournament army out of them myself.

  • kaptinscuzgob

    rather painfully generic, this lot. its just a random jumble of spooky junk and a 12-year-olds idea of scary stuff

    • ZeeLobby

      It just comes from the RPG that existed before Warmachine/Hordes or Malifaux. Just like malifaux the aesthetic is heavily dependent on personal taste.

  • petrow84

    Somehow reminds me of the aesthetics of Disciples 2, but less scary.

  • Talos2

    Considering it’s the first live showing of these to have such badly painted ones for people to check out is frankly terrible business. I quite like a few of them but I bet they’re damn pricey as warmahordes tends to be so I can’t see me being tempted

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah, bringing a studio painted army would have been a better idea. Will Pagani was pretty proud of his though, but he’s definitely a game player/designer first, haha. I’d be shocked if they didn’t have studio painted models on display somewhere. Though I don’t know what PP’s Adepticon presence is like.

    • Joel Carrera

      Honestly, sometimes professionally painted minis put me off. When I look at the picture and then look at the mini, and then decide that the only way that mini will look good is if I were a pro-painter, and then I put it back.

  • Gorsameth

    I just can’t get over how out of place this new army looks amid the existing Warmachine/Hordes miniatures.

    They’re way to cartoony imo.

    • Damistar

      They’re different to be certain, but I don’t think they’re any more out of place then Convergence of Cyriss.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      They look out of place next to Persian-Samurai runnings around with elephants?

      • Nani Sore

        The look (to me at least) like they don´t belong to the same universe. Not even saying they look bad.
        Just like something from a completely different setting.

    • zeno666


    • Coltcabunny

      That’s the idea. They’re literally from another plane of existence.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    I like it when they show off models not painted by super pros. They look great.

  • Brian Griffith

    So did P3 put out a crackle paint, or are they cheating and using Citadel?

    • kremmet

      …Citadel didn’t invent crackle medium. You just buy the medium and mix it in with you paint or buy the cheaper (and often superior) brands of premixed that have existed forever.

      • Brian Griffith

        Yes, but my point was that in most cases companies that make their own paint lines require that the demo models be painted using them. It’s the “eat your own dog food” school of marketing.

        So it’s obvious enough that those minis are based using crackle paint, or P3 paint with crackle medium mixed in. P3 doesn’t presently make either of those to my knowledge, so I’m curious if they rolled out a new paint.

        • kremmet

          For companies that also make hobby products they will tell you how to paint their models using their paint line, but they definitely don’t require you to solely use their paint and they especially don’t require you to only use mediums that they produce.

          For example, PP has a requirement of pin washing on commissioned models they’re going to use and do not produce any of the tools you’d need to do that. So they answer to your new question, much like the old one, is no. They’re not “cheating” and using Citadel crackle paints and they’re not rolling out their own.

        • If these were studio minis, that might matter, but they aren’t.

  • CloakingDonkey

    It just… still doesn’t look like an army =/

  • marxlives

    I can’t wait to defy Menoth and his Law with the Heretic.

  • Shawn

    I still can’t wrap my head around PP’s bastiche child with Malifaux.
