Hyperion unboxing!

I know it's been a minute since I posted anything here, but I really have not been feeling tabletop games lately. With the disappointment of 40K 6th edition, followed by my inability to get any gaming time in for Warmachine, I have just been hit by the gaming doldrums... Hard.

So, how does one shake the doldrums and get back on that gaming/blogging horse? (That's a weird horse...) By buying big, cool toys!!!

I like how "Colossal" is the smallest word on there.

I have been playing a bit of Legion and have got sort of a grasp on their play style, so what better way to cement that knowledge than to start a new faction! I saw that Hyperion was coming out this last week and that nudged me to retribution. Then I read some of their lore and checked out their casters and noticed how similar they were to Eldar and I was sold!



Here's a shot of what the box comes with


And all the pieces after a nice warm, soapy bath
Shoulder pads only a Marine could love...

I would have pictures of the whole thing put together, but unfortunately mine came a bit miscast :(
If this wasn't the focus of the model, I would have just made it work
I plan on running Hyperion with Ravyn because not only is she bad assness embodied, but she's cool as well. You can't go wrong with an Elf named Ravyn... as I have never said until now.
It's just as true now as it was 5 seconds ago when I typed that!

But seriously, Snipe on the Hyperion makes him quite a bit more dangerous. Her Feat also benefits him quite nicely and gives him more of a chance to get that critical consume.
You can also use Hyperion as a pretty awesome mobile wall to hide your mage hunter strike force behind. With phantom hunter you can pretty much shoot anything you damn well please. (They might need the snipe in that case though)

This is the list I have so far

25 point
Ravyn
  Hyperion
  Sylys Wyshnallyr
Mage hunter Strike force
  Mage hunter Commander
Eiryss, Angel of retribution
Arcanist

    1. Well, I sent my issue along to PP customer service and it seems they are aware of the gap. They said "With the Hyperion, the two sides will always have that slight gap between them." Then advised me to putty it up.

      That kind of sucks imo. The customer service was pretty quick to get back to me and they are sending me new pieces, but basically they advised me to deal with it. So for anyone looking to buy a Hyperion in the future, be advised that it will always have the gap shown above and you will need to file it down or putty it in.
