It's actually a Mini game based off a setting for DnD 3e, the setting seems pretty cool. Its kinda Steam Punk with lots steam engines and magic and stuff... However this game has become a sort of nemisis to me. A gaming store I used to play at, the owner is a idiot but anyway, the owner decides Warmachine is the coolest mini game out there and he pretty much decides that no one can play 40K at his store without his permission. (of course he also gets mad if you make noise while playing 40K so he's kind of a wacko...)
Sorry about the delay- been a busy week in college.
The typical points value? I don't know really- haven't tried a tournament. 1000-1500 seems to get the best balance, with a decent speed getting finished.
Cryx and Menoth are both good (all the armies are good, to tell you the truth). Honestly, the main rulebook has tactics for all armies that will assist you immensely on getting on the right track. After you practice those, you can add your own flair.
