They may have won me over with this one....

As you may have noticed, it's been like I've recently discovered Privateer Press or something. I haven't, obviously. I've been using their stuff for parts for some time now without ever having played their game. Now there's this:


You clever bastards. You know exactly what turns me on. 

Ah, this takes me back to the days of Battletech, where Mechs could mix it up with infantry on an everyday basis (and tanks, but WM doesn't really have those, now do they?) Luckily, those little buggers were the epitome of portable; you could fit a combined regiment in one case. Those large scale models are big without being enormously impractical.  If only someone else made large-scale mecha with 28mm infantry...

Now is the time when a reader skips to the comments field, and tells me someone already has. 

I know those exist, thanks. Yes, and before that, those too. 

Yes, and the Mad Cat. I'm that old, you know. I'm from the time before there was even an internet, and computers had green monitors. Go and ask your dad what a punch card is. 

Maybe it's time to sell off an army or two and step into some new shoes....

I think the khador version (giant red one) would be a nice basis for a knight titan or miniature warhound for 40k.

If you pause the video and take a look at the Cygnar one, it's a DEAD RINGER for an Imperial Knight titan, down to the knight head and beetle back.

So you're from that time when mailmen didn't ride horses, they rode velociraptors to get the mail through?

And you had to shoot brontosaurs off your lawn so they wouldn't stomp on your daffodils?

(Pfft, word Verification is Couthe)

Yes, yes I am.

Also, when they finally killed undead Hitler and ended the Occult wars.

My friends and I killed and saved hitler 14 times in a Paradox.

Crononauts is a fun card game, by the way.
