Steam Punk With A Sleight Of Hand

Recently Carl dropped by with two forces for 'Warmachine', from Privateer Press. I had never played Warmachine before, but you would have had to have been living under a rock not to have heard about it. It's a skirmish level game where a combination solider, sorcerer leads a small force containing soldiers and large steam powered, magically controlled combat mechs called warjacks. The game which uses 30mm scale miniatures is supported with a detailed background lavishly illustrated. 

The game is fast and the damage allocation for the warjacks simple and effective, I can see why this game and it's stable mate 'Hordes' have such a following.
