We knew it was coming but finally the miniatures themselves have appeared on the Privateer Press website in all their individual glory. See what you think of the Cephalyx miniatures coming in this first wave for Warmachine…
First up we have the mad, bad Exulon Thexus…
“Rising from an endless complex of tunnels beneath the earth, Exulon Thexus leads the armies of the inscrutable cephalyx in their cruel assaults. A master manipulator, this potent warcaster controls the minds and bodies of his own troops and the enemy alike. With terrifying precision Exulon Thexus can push his troops beyond the breaking point and scatter the forces of his enemies with the fell power of his alien mind.”
…now that is an awesome Warcaster. I think they have hit the nail on the head with the design of this faction and it provides something dangerously creepy to slink around in the world. You could very easily use these for Dark Eldar armies as well.
Next up we have the dangerously awesome Monstrosities that will be lumbering forward to crush your enemies. The Wrecker, Warden and Subduer all look brilliant and have a myriad of different options for tearing you to pieces. Some more brilliant miniatures raising the bar when it comes to Warmachine.
It might also be good to have some mindless minions haplessly following you too. The Mind Bender & Drudges might look pathetic and weak but…
“Cephalyx specialized in unleashing formidable mental powers to augment the drudges they command or to annihilate foes, mind benders can instill in their enslaved warriors a strength and savagery beyond ordinary fleshly limitations. These drudges sometimes serve as conduits for the mind bender’s overwhelming rending mental attacks, though they are consumed in the process.”
…that might change your mind!
I do like the sound of the Cephalyx and I could easily see them becoming a fan favourite once they get to the tabletop. I already know a few friends who have been chomping at the bit to get them and paint them up in some creepy ways.
What do you think?
