Andy dude you put the pufs of gun smoke on wrong. you choose between those 3 variations of gun smoke and clip off the one u want, then u glue them in narrow part in to the gun. aside from that hes a cool model that kicks some serious ass. i also bought one for my buds birthday kinda regret it considering all the trouble he causes on the board.
or leave on all 3 and just glue it on so that the narrow end is on the gun.
If you look at the studio paint job for that mini, you’ll see that you’re not supposed to choose… He’s shooting repeating shots.
I did see that, but for me personally i think it looks better if both sides aren’t the same, it has less symmetry and more variation that way. plus its how my bud did his and it looked really good to me.
There’s nothing wrong with that ! I happen to think that sculpt is a little stiff, myself, and a little too over the top… I’d probably repose him slightly, and get some of the gunshots from Hasslefree to replace the original ones. Still, very cool character, lots of fun !
Andy I think you have to give gatecrasher more credit. It is definitely more than just a tool to get away it is one of the hardest assassination tools to escape. He gets to move 7 or charge a model for 10 and then gatecrash placing him an additional 8 inches away, this gives him a potential 15 to 18 inch threat range on the enemy caster assuming you couldnt get line of site before. Now you have 3 focus left (or 4 and an additional shot if you took reinholdt and a squire) this means you get 5 to 7 shots at the enemy caster with rat 9. The shots also start at p+s 13 and end at p+s17 or 19 (again depending if you took the squire and reindholdt) assuming you hit with every shot. Not many casters are surviving that.
That’s how I’ve always heard people talk about Gatecrasher. Andy’s the first person I’ve noticed who only mentions the escape use for it. Everyone else has always said that it’s Caine’s biggest assassination tool – grab focus from the Squire, position the troops so that a friendly’s in charge range of Caine and in 8″ of an enemy model (ideally their warcaster). Caine pops feat, charges the friendly, Gatecrashes over to the bad guy and then starts blazing away John Preston-style.
When your warcaster is also your main gunsman and the main target of your opponent, especially if he only has a few gun mages to protect him and he’s not as hot in melee as others (for example… Oh, I don’t know… A Hordes force, or Khador…), he’d better have an escape plan or two…
I liked the puppy scene, thanks !
Well the Caine-Gatecrasher (which I’m tempted to call “Caine Crashes The Party”, but that may just be from reading too many Martial Arts Charms from Exalted) is kind of an all-or-nothing trick. The idea is to get Caine into melee range of the enemy warcaster, then start blazing away into them with his pistols.
Since Caine reached his charge target (the friendly), then his activation doesn’t end. He can then cast Gatecrasher to get right next to the enemy and Gunfighter allows him to just shoot the guy at point-blank range. With his feat going for that turn, he can do some serious damage.
Obviously though, if you’ve got a way to soften up the enemy warcaster/lock before making the assassination run, always best to do that. Hedge Caine’s bets a little.
The only cygnar warcaster I would ever consider playing, he’s a walking slaughterhouse against infantry heavy armies like Retribution
eCaine is definitely one of the strongest Casters in the Cygnar arsenal. He can win you a game against _anyone_ at _any_ time if your opponent makes a mistake. With a Squire, Reinholdt the Gobbo Specular and two free shots he can bring down anything in the game in one round by himself. His synergy with Rangers, Eiryss and Aiyana & Holdt is scary good. Disruption Bolt from Eiryss, run ranger within 5″ of target and give target Kiss of Lyneth. Nothing will live against that. My last game against Orberos my enemy watched as eCaine feat and killed his two Heavy warbeasts in one round. The feat is not only for killing casters.
The down side is you have to really perform your Feat at the key time or you’ve just wasted it.
I’m just not a good enough player yet to really take advantage of it yet.
On the other hand pCaine just let’s you pop your feat and you boom boom boom everyone. It’s useful almost any time and much easier to time.
I’ve found people anticipate eCaine’s feat and keep away from him or position their caster to prevent you from getting into an assassination position.
I’d love to see Andy do a vid on Victoria Haley. I’m considering Warmachine as an additional hobby and she really floats my boat.
An awsome strategy (!) for Caine: 1. Kill him. 2. Resurect him as an undead servant of Lord Toruk. 3. Let him keep his pistols. 4. Teach him cull soul and the spell soultaker. (4.5 Optional: Teach him to make his shots ghostly/spectral) 5. Use him to murder EVERYONE! 6. Profit! Want him as my pistol wraith so bad after seeing this conversion: http://www.coolminiornot.com/253403?browseid=682072
