Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been neglecting my Warmachine forces lately in favor of my beloved trolls, so I decided to come back and try a brand spankin' new force for Warmachine. I have a Khador army, and started a Menoth force before deciding they weren't me. Cygnar sucks, so I got a few other choices.
1) Cryx. I've been eyeing these guys for a while, and a few of the casters plus the undead really appeal to me, but some of the fluff and models make me go eh. If I started I'd like to use Goreshade or the Dragon winged guy.
2) Pirates of the broken coast. FRIGGAN PIRATES! This army looks great, and I already ordered the book. my only beef is the stuff isn't here yet and I want it now, but I will definately picks some up if I do...
3) Merc's. Come on, my name, mercenary's, would be a fitting thing huh? Magnus is by far my favorite character, and I've used him a few times to spectacular results. I popped his feat against an Everblight force and caused tremendous carnage, it was awesome. Only problem is I like unification, and Merc's are rag tag.
So I would like you people to help me by posting positives and negatives, what you like, what success you have had and so on and so forth. I plan to keep this up and blog about the army I will eventually do and the Campaign I'm working on.
Well... I would go with what I though looked coolest. Mercs are underdogs, often not many of those around so if you want to be pretty unique you would go with them. And Magnus' Renegades are nasty.
If you want points why mercs own, read this thread.
Cryx are also very cool and they can make very varied forces, from assassination combos to undead hordes.
Pirates are mercs with a unified look. With the release of the new book they will be a pretty cool quasi-faction.
having built armies for just about everything...
gotta say, Mercs is the way to go...
think of it this way... if you feel like you might be betraying Khador building a new army, just remind yourself that just about every merc you get can also work for khador...
