Privateer Insider

One of the toughest sculpts for me in my time at Privateer Press was the original WARMACHINE: Tactics Kickstarter version of Aiakos, Scourge of Meredius, my first Cryx model. Since it was my first experience working with this Faction, I really had to work on the shapes and style, which were a serious challenge. But it was a labor of love, no matter what I said at the time. I knew this Journeyman Warcaster would grow up and take over as a full-fledged badass, and I hoped that someday I would get to work on that full warcaster version.

Righteous Realness: Cosplay at Lock & Load

Before I fill you in on the Lock & Load GameFest 2016 cosplay contest I emceed, let me note: my introductory WARMACHINE joke was killer. Never mind the groans from the audience, the warning headshake from my alleged moral support friend, or the stony silence that followed the punchline. It was still a mike-drop moment. And never mind that my name is “Mike.”
