I was part of “the wave” when IK Warmachine first hit and was a diehard Cryx player for a long time before I felt the game got too big. But I keep up with what the produce so when I needed an undead captain for a Dungeons & Dragons game, it was an easy choice to get Captain Rengrave. I actually rand short on time so speed painted him following the technique I used for my Zombicide game and I’m quite pleased with the result.
While I don’t play Privateer Press games anymore, I still love their minis and some of them have that quirky personality and character I loved about Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader Orks and this fantastic Trollkin sailor is a great example of this.

She proved a serious challenge for the party.
