Privateer Insider

For a multitude of reasons, I was immediately drawn to Cryx when I got into WARMACHINE. Who doesn’t want to lead their own necrotite-fueled army of robots to victory over all things good and true? The lich-house aesthetic, the wealth of intriguing female characters, and the cringe-inducing concept of “necrosurgery” were among the reasons I loved the Nightmare Empire instantly. The design behind every model in the Faction is so incredible; it left me undecided for a long time on what particular army I wanted to construct.

Tales of the Invisible Hand: An Excerpt

Bloody Buccaneer Brew Skarre

Bloody Buccaneer Brew was, I believe, the second beer-art collaboration we ever did with the Indianapolis RAM during Gen Con, so many years ago now that I’ve forgotten all the details. (If my memory serves correctly, we followed it with the Kiltlifter, but I could have this backwards.)Back then, I was still our primary concept artist, and I was doing artwork for our games and for what we’d provide the RAM for their shirts and mugs. As a long-time fan of creating pin-up art, I saw this as a great opportunity to take one of our favorite WARMACHINE characters and present her in a different, more humorous light.

Tales of the Invisible Hand Airship Schematics with Author Miles Holmes

Despite a prehistoric setting, Tales of the Invisible Hand could be described as diesel-punk. That’s because of the aircraft it features—or “airships,” as they’re called here. I’ve always marveled over the aircraft and air combat of World War II, even when considering the many experimental designs that came from that period. While most of those designs might never have seen action, they were fascinating to me just the same.
