I’ve had a few requests for more colors, so here they are. I figured out a better way to get the colors to work in Photoshop that isn’t quite as haphazard and gives me more color control. I might even tackle the trooper models and a light next. We shall see.
So word is out about the Retribution of Scyrah products that will be available in September. I’m not breaking any news here, but I know I wanted to see the descriptions with photos. 😉
Forces of WARMACHINE: Retribution of Scyrah Softcover PIP1019 $34.99 Hardcover PIP1020 $44.99
Retribution is at hand! Hidden behind their impenetrable borders, a sect within the long-secluded nation of Ios is preparing for war. Once outlawed as dangerous and radical, the Retribution of Scyrah has come from the shadows to offer the elves of Ios a chance at salvation. The Retribution is convinced that by ending the rampant spread of mankind’s magic they can stop the slow death of their god Scyrah and save their race. Armed with the power of arcanika and backed by mighty myrmidon warjacks, the armies of the Retribution of Scyrah are prepared to hunt down and eradicate every last human magic user in western Immoren.
Forces of WARMACHINE: Retribution of Scyrah introduces the first new faction since the release of the award-winning miniatures game WARMACHINE, and it is the first official product compliant with Mk II rules. This 116-page full-color book contains:
- Complete faction rules and profiles for fielding the Retribution of Scyrah in WARMACHINE Mk II, including 5 new warcasters
- An in-depth look at the history of the ancient and long-secluded nation of Ios
- A painting guide to help get your forces ready for battle
- An all-new Theme Forces section, which allows players to create armies based on various specialized forces in the WARMACHINE world
Retribution Warcaster Dawnlord Vyros PIP35001 $14.99
Dawnlord Vyros views the military might of the new Retribution as a sword in his hands, one sufficient to sunder any obstacle. He has the loyalty of the Dawnguard and the volunteered assets of dozens of other houses. The dawnlord has a reputation as a bold and forthright general who leads by example. Even pursuits such as falconry Vyros extends to applications in war, linking his mind to his hawk to look down from above and survey the battlefield. Vyros comes in a blister. A player may field one Vyros in his Retribution army.
Retribution Warcaster Kaelyssa, Night’s Whisper PIP35003 $9.99
Kaelyssa is the foremost strike force commander of the Retribution’s mage hunters. Her sergeants claim she can hear the heartbeats of the enemy and taste their movements on the wind. Those wizards caught in her sights are left defenseless as their own magic is negated or turned against them. To Kaelyssa her calling is a dangerous but thrilling endeavor, and with every mission she extends the depths of her formidable talents. A player may field one Kaelyssa in his Retribution army.
Retribution Chimera PIP35006 $20.99
The Chimera has an unsettling appearance as its active power field makes its form blur and fade. Once it nears the enemy, a Chimera becomes a delivery device for its warcaster’s most powerful arcane powers, channeled across its arc node. The Chimera will strike and kill with its scything arm-mounted glaives, then vanish as nearby soldiers turn to desperately engage it. With a flicker of blended light it appears behind them to deliver arcane death. Chimera comes in a blister. A player may field any number of Chimeras in his Retribution army.
Retribution Heavy Myrmidon Plastic Kit – Hydra / Manticore / Phoenix PIP35007 $29.99
House Shyeel has brought the power of its formidable myrmidons to the Retribution, fighting machines enhanced by sophisticated arcanika systems. The Hydra stores energy in its arcane batteries to unleash a torrent of crushing blows or a singularly powerful blast. The Manticore is equally as formidable in melee or at range, thanks to kinetically augmented attacks and its Cyclone Cannon. The Phoenix enters battle in a blaze of blue-white flames as liquid fire ignites along its massive thermal blade. This box set contains three color stat cards and one multi-part heavy myrmidon plastic model. Included are all the components to assemble one of three heavy myrmidon variants: Hydra, Manticore, or Phoenix. A player may field any number of heavy myrmidons in his Retribution army.
Retribution Dawnguard Invictors Unit PIP35008 $44.99
Invictors make up the bulk of House Nyarr’s Dawnguard order. When supported by the formidable Iosan myrmidons, invictors are unsurpassed on the battlefield. Firing their weapons as they close, the invictors are ever ready to charge into the ranks of the enemy and cut them down with the heavy blades set into their rifles. Dawnguard Invictors come in a box. A player may field two Dawnguard Invictor units for each warcaster in his Retribution army.
Retribution Dawnguard Sentinels Unit PIP35009 $49.99
Dawnguard sentinels charge into the enemy as an overwhelming tide of cleaving blades. These heavily armored knights use their great swords to expertly carve through any adversary willing to stand against them. Sentinels embody sheer determination made tangible in flesh and steel and view themselves as the timeless essence of their order. Dawnguard Sentinels come in a box. A player may field two Dawnguard Sentinel units for each warcaster in his Retribution army.
Retribution Narn, Mage Hunter of Ios PIP35023 $9.99
While his name is largely unknown outside the Retribution, within their ranks Narn is held in legendary esteem for his blinding speed as a bladesman and the fluid yet austere grace with which he executes every kill. The veteran hunter is given tremendous flexibility in his choice of operations and favors serving as a lone assassin rather than as a task force leader. Narn comes in a blister. A player may field one Narn in his Retribution army.
Retribution Gorgon PIP35031 $19.99
The Gorgon exists to dictate the flow of battle by depriving the enemy of mobility. Its integral force cannon unleashes blasts of energy capable of forestalling an enemy’s forward momentum. Its more powerful fields require close proximity, and the Gorgon will rush forward to seize even larger and more powerful ’jacks or myrmidons to pin them in place. While its force-locked prey struggles to extract itself, the Gorgon deals punishing blows with its arm-mounted glaives. Gorgon comes in a blister. A player may field any number of Gorgons in his Retribution army.
Retribution Griffon PIP35032 $20.99
The Griffon is a sleek and fast myrmidon, designed for swift flanking maneuvers. Its power field enables the Griffon to become near-weightless for short intervals, allowing for long, loping strides before it strikes home with its powerful halberd. By judicious use of this field the Griffon can negotiate marshy terrain, dense undergrowth or other obstacles. Griffon comes in a blister. A player may field any number of Griffons in his Retribution army.
The best (worst?) thing about seeing all of the prices for the Retribution models is I know how much money I’ll need to bring to Gencon. It’s $256.91 for everything besides Narn. Honestly, I’m looking at the hardcover and the multi-jack plastic kit ahead of everything else. Morrow knows what I’ll need to ninja for folks. 😉
These showed up in General Discussion in this thread.
I think they look great.
I love the fact they’re plastic.
I’m going to need to work on my blending. A lot.
I’m not 100% certain these will stay up, but if I’m asked to take them down, I will.
This are the images that interested me the most — the introduction of a plastic kit with the ability to make different models. I know this is something that Games Workshop has done with success, and it’s something that Privateer faithful have been talking about since word got out the company was going to start making models out of plastic.
I’m not sure what color I’m going to paint mine. The white looks nice, but it’s too tough to pull of consistently — at least for me. I like the idea of using the turquoise/arcane blue for the circuitry/magical effects. I’m thinking maybe a gray — Bastion or maybe Cryx Bane Highlight. In any event, I’ll have plenty of time to decide.
The haters are already out in full force about these models. Once again, they can suck it.
I may or may not post the rest of the images. I guess it depends on whether or not these get to stay. 😉
