Well hello there! I’m Josh, the sometime editor here at PartyFoul, and I’m here with what I hope will become a new article series. As you can probably guess from the title of the series it’s going to be all about fixing some of the disregarded aspects of Warmachine and Hordes. I am by no means an expert, heck I wouldn’t even call myself all that much of a player. Rather I’m treating this series as something of a thought experiment. With the impending arrival of the Community Integrated Development (CID) from Privateer Press (PP) my hope is to bring some oversights to the attention of the community in hopes of seeing them rectified, or at least to get an explanation from PP about why things were done.
Well I have decided to put Khador away and play with new toys. And one just came out. Cygnars new character warjack Brickhouse.
First think I notice about this jack is the price. Wow was it ever expensive. More then I am used to paying for a jack. I was expecting mid $40’s but it was high $50s. (In Canada that means more then $70).
Time to dive in!
The kit is primarily plastic. A couple small bits, head and legs are metal. This should make it easier to change that ridiculous stock pose. Seriously how did that ever make it past marketing?
Even have a sweet custom base from Secret Weapon for him.
Lots of flash and bits to clean off. Doesn’t matter to me so much as I’m a horrible at this hobby. But if you’re meticulous then you’ll probably spend upwards of 30min cleaning it all up.
Sometimes you have to balance models to get them to glue just right. I am very impatient and wish glue would work faster!
Bam! Trying to get the pose just right. I probably should have put the head on at this point but I waited until I had both arms on. That was a mistake. Ended up almost busting off the Ironman arm trying to get the head on.
And finally done. Aside from cleaning off all the flash Brickhouse goes together fairly easy. As you can see I put the hammer down so he wasn’t so crossing guardish. Now just have to wait for Greg to get home from vacation so I can get him painted and on the table!
Greg and I throw down an epic battle. Stryker 1 with Double Stormwall vs Wurmwood.
Post game wrap up will be available only to Patreon pledgers.
For some reason the end of the video got cut off…..grrrr. Went poorly for Kara.
So my dream has not only been assembled but it has also been painted! Its done.
Thanks to Ian for making it all come together and to Greg for painting it up for me! Now I have the itch to dig my Cygnar out for a few games!
Yes I know someone else did this already. Sorry I didn’t know it when I first posted it.
