Cygnar Gallery

After I started getting my Trollblood force together for Hordes, I realized that I wanted a Warmachine force for variety of play. I thought long and hard about which faction I would collect, but fate intervened and made the choice for me one day during the summer of 2007 when Ken offered to sell me his Cygnar starter box. Although I was strongly drawn to both Mercenaries and Cryx, it’s hard for any geek to turn down the option that he holds in his hand. I’m glad I made the choice I did – The Cygnareans have served me well in both victories and the fun factor.

As a gamer…

To date, I haven’t enjoyed playing any force for any wargame more than I enjoy playing my Cygnar army for Warmachine. The army is elite in nature, and there are many options for long range and melee combat. The warcasters are generally great at buffing the army’s offensive and defensive capabilities. The best thing about playing Cygnar is the sheer number of possible combinations when designing lists. The units aren’t too linear, and almost any combination of my collection has its merits on the field.

As a painter…

The Cygnar models (and Warmachine models in general I think) are visually an acquired taste. I find that the Cygnar collection specifically has a cartoon or comic-book steampunk look to them. My bright blue and in-your-face “golden” yellow scheme is meant to mimic the look of comic book art rather than any kind of reality. I realize it’s a preference thing, but I’m pleased with the effect, and the army is sure hard to miss on the table.

Thanks for reading,
JET
