Great information for new players here on the Warmachine factions.
Too often I see factions get ‘pigeon-holed’ into one specific playstyle (IE Khador is the ‘slow’ faction, when across the board it actually has a higher average speed per model), when the factions (and the game at large) are so much deeper than that.
Who can we use? What are they like? First of all have a look at my overview of the game as a whole.
This week I’m going to discuss how the armies of Warmachine play. That is what models they often play and what that feels like on the table so that you can make an informed choice as you start the game. Next week we will discuss the Factions of Hordes.
The Factions of Warmachine are varied and very well-balanced against each other, though some Factions have an easier time when playing their “typical” models against other Factions, again fielding typical models. The individual warcasters/warlocks also provide a huge variety of playstyles and armies that can be explored. However, ultimately, each Faction has a flavour and a certain approach, as well as distinctive feels and similarities throughout their suite of options.
