More Grymkin appear, stepping out of your nightmares and onto the tabletop.

That’s right, this week new Grymkin models hit stores, including a Dreamer, a knife-handed warbeast, and a pair of sisters who’ll offer you a bargain, but one that comes with a hidden price. Let’s take a look!

The Dreamer – $49.99

Having rejected Menoth’s reality, the Dreamer chose to live within the more pleasing confines of her own dreamworld. Existence itself conforms to her slumbering visions—or is punished for its resistance. Freed from Urcaen with the other Defiers, the Dreamer imposes her phantasmal will upon the mortals of the Iron Kingdoms.

Rattler – $24.99

Named for the jangling of the iron links that wrap it as it trembles with feral hatred for the Defiers’ corrupt foes, the gaunt rattler is the most spiteful nightmare serving the Wicked Harvest. Catching sight of the enemy throws a rattler into a mad rage, and in this frenzy it hurtles into crowds of the unfortunate to lay waste with its bladed claws.

Gorehound – $17.99

The gorehound hunts far and wide at its masters’ bidding. Its long tongue tastes the air for the sweet taint of corruption as it stalks its prey. Once a stonehearted coward falls within its grasp, the gorehound leisurely sups on the victim’s fear and flesh—a just reward for callousness.

The Twilight Sisters – $24.99

The Twilight Sisters offer grim bargains to those they meet on the perilous roads of the Iron Kingdoms. As these enigmatic witches travel, they offer aid to their grymkin fellows, all while serving their own ends and punishing the wicked for their folly. Those who renege on a pact made with the sisters quickly see their lives end amid unimaginable torment.

Trapperkin – $14.99

The vile fiends known as trapperkin dwell just out of sight below and behind the magical portals they can create at whim. Be wary, for these grymkin will suddenly throw open an unseen hatch to snatch up victims and drag them back to their hidden lairs. When a trapperkin is near, all must tread carefully—a wrong step could mean vanishing without a trace, stolen away by these deadly lurkers.

The newest members of the Grymkin are available now.

    Might as well just save some cash and use malifaux models, some of this faction are just straight rip offs. Just worse

    • Rob Miller

      You could believe that, or do a little research. the original art for this faction predates the original release of Warmachine. it was in a supplement for 3rd edition D&D called Monsternomicon, the first thing Privateer put out. Which means it came out 7 years or so before Wyrd published Malifaux.

        As Noob Noob would say, god dammmn

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. it’s all fanboy wars these days.

        • Richard Mitchell

          You are right Zee, which really sad because I enjoy both games and they are both a lot of fun. I really can’t grow beyond Warmachine, Dark Age, Malifaux, Deadzone, and X-Wing because I am at my system limit but doesn’t mean there aren’t other great games out there.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah, it’s a shame. There’s so many good games out there, but some people latch on to one company or one game system and claim everyone is is copying theirs, or theirs is the only good system, etc. It’s amazing how many options we have today. We’re super lucky.

      • Vepr

        If the Monsternomicon is the one I am thinking of it was very well written sort of like the Volo guides with some first person perspective and an interesting read. The Iron lich is in there among other recognizable creatures from war machine and hordes. I need to dig my copy out of storage, it really is an enjoyable read.

        True, the Grimkin are called Grimkin, because they are based off of Grimm fairy tales, with a little twist. The Grimkin are souls twisted to match and be punished for their particular 7 deadly sin by the Defiers (mortals who were thrown in to hell by Menoth).

        As someone who ALSO plays Malifaux the Grim look, feel, and play different and the Arcana cards really give you the sense that the Defiers shape reality by being a walking tear between the physical and spirit world.

        With Malifuax the “evil” factions are as follows Ressurectionists (conscious or unconscious followers of a titan named the Grave Spirit) and Neverborn (the previous inhabitants of Malifaux or spiritual manifestations of the Malifaux who wish to keep the titans sealed away).

        The Dreamers in both games are also very different. One is a child who can cross the breach by dreaming and is being used by a Malifaux spirit. In Warmachine the Dreamer was one of the defiers who realized that humans did not require gods to shape reality and could do it on their own and she was tossed into hell by the Creator of Man. Again two very different games, both really fun to play.

        Also since Grimkin are based off of Grimms fairy tales each one has specific rules and laws that are based off of the flow of the spirit world rather than natural laws.

      Just worse… than what?

      • UnpluggedBeta

        Presumably “worse than a rip off.”

    • UnpluggedBeta

      Jesus Christ, how adorable and trendy.

  • UnpluggedBeta

    The dreamer looks awesome and those mechanics are interesting as hell. I wonder how she plays.

    • Richard Mitchell

      Me too, I am very satisfied with the Heretic as a troop and control caster, I can’t wait to put her on the table and unlock some of her interactions.

    • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

      Real finesse Warlock. Probably best teamed with Witch 3 or the Child and a bunch of Heavies to max out Hat Trick.
