PostSubject: How to choose a Warmachine/Hordes faction   Wed Feb 29, 2012 5:59 pm

Bell of Lost Souls did a very good article for new WM/H players (or players who are thinking of starting the game) on how to choose factions. Although these articles are a year old, they are still pretty much relevant.

How to choose a Warmachine Faction - by Lux

There are many ways to pick a faction when starting a new army: background, aesthetics, playstyle. Now I can't tell you which design styles you should like, and we've already written a bunch of articles detailing the backgrounds of the major Warmachine and Hordes factions, so this one will focus on the playstyles of each of the main forces.

So you want to start playing Warmachine, but you aren't sure which faction is for you. I realize that most of you reading this will be coming from a Games Workshop background, probably 40k. When most of us think of playstyles in 40k-land, we think of the shooty factions (IG, Tau, Necrons, etc), the close combat factions (Orcs, Nids, DE....), the fast factions (Eldar, DE.....), and so on. While most factions will have a few units that break from that overall style, for the most part the armies will play a certain way. There aren't many people who can turn IG or Tau into a fully close combat force.
Read more... and more.

Tekanan, my man, I remember long time ago I bought a Cryx army from you.

Now, I've just placed a big order for Everblight.

You must be the guy who bought the Cryx starter set from me at the Bangsar mamak? I was wondering where you went!

I play at Comics Corner DJ now but I am open to play elsewhere like Toybox, Wolf's Gameshop or even Hobby Forge. Smile

I'm not around lately though. Got posted to Brunei to do some crappy work. Neutral
