Warmachine: Rhupert Carvolo, the Piper of Ord
With Ord being a town in Nebraska big enough to have a high school marching band, I couldn't resist the gag. :

Warmachine: N3mo and Finch as Iron Man and Rescue
Played these tonight in a zappy-heavy army against a Khador force. Sorscha one-shotted Finch, but then ate Stormclad sword. One of my rare victories. :
ETA: Huh. At some point LJ decided "lonely" was my default mood. I just noticed that...I wonder how many hundreds of posts I've made with that mood?

Friendship is Llamas?
Background for people who don't pay attention to such things: :
A while back, a group called Mane6 started working on a Street-Fighter-style game using My Little Pony characters, called "Fighting is Magic". They were using an off-the-shelf engine, but doing pretty well in learning how it worked (and didn't work, and how to get around that) and putting together unique moves for all the ponies.
It was well-received. In fact, it was even up for an award for indie games (I forget if they won or just placed well)...which was their downfall. Fighting is Magic got too big for Hasbro to turn a blind eye, and they dropped a Cease & Desist on Mane6.
This is where Lauren Faust, the person behind the current incarnation of MLP, stepped in. She offered to design a new set of characters for Mane6, who would use what they'd learned so far to create an even better game. And now there's a synergy with the kickstarter campaign for a group developing a superior 2-D fighting engine, if they hit 750K they'll give Mane6 a free license.
All that said, silhouettes of some of the new characters are now available as part of a FAQ posting...and one of them appears to be a llama. My Llittle Llama!

Warmachine: Stormguard as Guardsman (one grunt)
After basecoating all ten figures in the unit, I decided to go ahead and finish one to make sure I liked the results before going at the other nine. And I did change a few things along the way, so this one is a little odd-looking in places where I had to cover up stuff, hopefully the rest will be smoother now that I know what I want. :

Warmachine: Firefly as Bombshell
Painted as another Insecticon since one of the big benefits of the Firefly is that it can hang out with Stormcallers and provide another triangulation point for zappy.

Warmachine: Stormcallers as Insecticon Shrapnel
Finished just ahead of my trip. :) The Firefly Light Warjack I got to go along with them is assembled and will be painted as Bombshell once I get back.
