Of all the visual spectacles that will be at Lock & Load this year, what I can’t wait to see are the paint jobs. There’s something about walking around the convention floor just checking out everyone’s armies that I find really entertaining. You never know what you’re going to find. Bright-yellow Cryx? Cotton-candy-pink Skorne? An entire Blindwater Congregation force converted to look like mechanical gators with laser eyes and flamethrower tongues?!

Who knows what folks are going to bring to Lock & Load? All I know is that whenever I get a chance to sneak away from my assigned station, I’ll be stalking around the game tables giggling like a hyena at all the awe-inspiring conversions and beautiful paint jobs. The artistic talent of the Privateer Press community never ceases to impress me.

Speaking of impressive art, I just got a sneak peek at some of the new art for WARMACHINE: Wrath. Let me tell you, it is stunning. I managed to creep into the design studio when no one was looking and abscond with a little nugget of awesome for everyone. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the very first Mercenary character warjack: Rocinante!

Looks like the art got a bit scrambled in the smuggling process, though. . .
