Pyg Bushwhackers


This week in (not-so) random ebay purchases:

Don't be hating Rob!

Nope, I don't like the game...but I do like to paint the minis from time to time. These guys will go along with my Captain Gunnbjorn. Its almost like I'm building a themed 'The Big Bang' army...BUT REMEMBER, I only like to paint them, I don't read their rules or anything...

This box has an MSRP of $45, meaning I didn't think I'd ever get it. However, after making minimum bids on this boxed set several times I finally won it in an auction. $20 shipping included? Yes please! Granted, the auctions I had lost previously were only going for $25ish, makes ya wonder why they go for so cheap till ya read about these guys on Battle College.

Apparently they suck.

Not totally, but in comparison to say...Trollkin Highwaymen, they do. Aaaaand we all know that all Warmahordes players are a bunch of cutthroat mother-fuckers who only play purely optimized lists, right?

I kid, I kid (well, no, not 

...anyways, I'm not sure how long it'll be till they find their way to the front of my painting queue but I'm looking forward to painting them up!

Ah, yeah, I think I know what you mean.... a tag line like "Play like you've got a pair !" does encourage a certain style of play....

Yeah, when trying to learn how to play Mk I, a couple schmucks used that as an excuse to club a baby seal and when I said 'dude WTF, I told you I was learning?" they started screaming 'PAGE 5! MOTHER-FUCKER' (direct quote)...and that was the end of my Warmahordes playing experience.

I know the local crowd nowadays isn't like that and in Mk II page 5 mentions that it's not a license to be an asshole (well, essentially), but ultimately the game's play style doesn't match my own.
