Cephalyx – A New Warmachine Faction

Cephalyx Miniature

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything about Warmachine – possibly the last time Privateer released the Convergence of Cyriss faction. Well, that time has come again, Privateer unveiled another new faction for Warmachine – the sadistic Cephalyx!

#1 – Cephalyx Faction Video

Being the Warmachine-newb I am, I’ll hand over to Privateer to present their latest!

However, the first few minutes of the video are semi-creepy. You’ve been warned!

#3 – Thoughts?

As much as I know that Games Workshop didn’t invent this kind of Frankenstein’s Monster-visuals, it does remind me a lot of Games Workshops Dark Eldar Haemunculi, their chirurgeon-appendages growing from the back and their Wracks and Grotesque minions.

It may be my GW-bias speaking, but that’s the way it is.

That said, they do look like good miniatures for that kind of miniatures. Better than Finecast Grotesques for sure.

What do you think about Privateer Press’s latest offering?

      Glad I wasn’t the only one who had that association ;)

        yeah I can totally see that now. Since they have always been a part of the cryx faction, I always felt they were more on the necromatic side of things. But yeah on their own, it sticks out like a sore…er uumm neck bolt :)

  • Hive Senteniel

    Sooo they’re Dark Eldar but for Warmachine, neat!

  • Brian Horton

    Wow a bit of a Darke Eldar feel but this some more humanity.

  • Mr.omega

    And so the Warmachine design team took their dart board of GW’s concepts and design themes they have yet to copy and threw a dart, hitting Dark Eldar.

    “My my, it really is quite easy when we don’t even need to think of original design ideas”

    “Who are we kidding, its not like anyone actually plays Warmachine for the models. Future releases should be pieces of card- why waste our customer’s time by forcing them to stick their shining metal pieces on bases when they’ll never paint them? H”

      This faction was actually in the lore for awhile

      • Stuart Attic

        Not quite from the beginning, but yeah Cephalyx have been around for a bit. I’m not sure why PP keeps adding factions to Warmachine. Are Gators official for Hordes yet?

          we can only wish….
