Insider 6-27-2011

Hi. I’m the new guy on the development team here at Privateer Press, and as I understand is tradition, my first Insider will tell you a little about how I got here and what I’ll be doing.

I’ve been a big fan of WARMACHINE since before the game launched. It all started with a lone preview Juggernaut someone brought back from Gen Con in 2001. I had never seen anything cooler than that killer robot, and I was hooked. In those early months after the pre-release, I checked the website as often as possible, hoping for a glimpse of what the game would be like. The day Iron Lich Asphyxious was posted, I decided that Cryx would always be my main faction.

Over the years, I’ve built up a small Skorne army, but most of my time has been spent with Cryx. Now that I work at Privateer Press, I fully expect to go a bit faction crazy. I’m already planning to start and expand a Searforge army, but then there’s also that new two-player starter full of Khador and Protectorate goodness. Hmm, which one to pick first?

So, now that you know the player side of the story, here’s the rest. I’ve been working in the game industry for five years, and I jumped at the chance when I saw an opening at Privateer Press. I’ll be helping run the playtest process, but I’ll also be working on a few projects that I will be talking to you about as DC lets me!

See you next time. I need to go get a Ghordson Basher.
