WM:Two Player box

 Got the Warmachine: Two Player Box set today, featuring the armies of Menoth and Khador. After cracking it open  I thought I would do an unboxing for the people who are unfamiliar with Warmachine, or are just curious to what the contents of the box are.The box set comes with two armies and everything you will need to start playing the game of Warmachine.The minis are unassembled and unpainted so there will be some standard modeling work to be done before you can actually start playing.

Inside the box is a tournament sized full color rulebook that has only the rules for the game. There are no back stories or fluff. This rulebook is similar to the rulebooks that come in the "Warhammer Starter Sets." There is also an introduction guide that familiarizes you with the contents of the box and a quick look at some of the other factions in the Iron Kingdom world. It also comes with a quick start rule leaflet that is also in the battle boxes you can buy for each faction. Set also includes four d6, a paper ruler, full color stat cards for each model included in the box, and of course the minis.

The models included for the Khador Faction are:
Kommander Sorscha
Juggernaut Heavy Warjack
Destroyer Heavy Warjack
and 5 Man-O-War Shocktroopers (Unit)

Menoth Army comes with:

High Exemplar Kreoss
Crusader Heavy Warjack
Vanquisher Heavy Warjack
Repenter Light Warjack
5 Exemplar Cinerators (Unit).

Once I get the stuff assembled I will post some pictures of everything. My first impressions are really good. Some of the resin pieces have bent and will be need to be straightened out in warm water, but this is to be expected. The rule book has a matte finish to the pages which make it kinda look like I printed it at home in full color from a high quality pdf. Other than that I am very pleased with the minimalist approach to packaging and the models look really good and clean. It looks like they may have been already cut off a sprue, I hope upon closer inspection I won't have to do too much gap filling, or have any poor cuts or gouges. Only time will tell.With that all said I would still recommend this box set to anyone interested in getting started in the game, or if you are an existing player looking to get into one of the two featured armies.

Until next time happy gaming!
