Cryx,

I originally found Warmachine whilst looking for alternate Dark Eldar models (Haemonculi Coven etc). I never did get any for 40k but got hooked on Cryx, particularly the pirate/loyalist side. Revenants, Satyxis, Terminus, Skarre, Coven etc.

I half eye on the living pirates, as well as Retribution, Circle and Cygnar (who are not as vanilla as I had thought, upon reading the fluff etc). Would quite like an eCaine army, or one of the Nemos.

Cryx for me. Undead Pirates - hell yes.

That aside, they are really the only faction I have ever used, the background appeals to me, I love the grim drabness of the colour scheme I use and they are just really evil to use.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

They will be about 100 times more evil once I conquer my current painting block...

Menoth. I finally got into WM because I liked the idea of the Harbinger and the Avatar going into battle together, sort of a theological one-two punch to the Unbeliever.

Of course, Harby's model is so horrible to transport or move around a gaming table that I ended up making my own version, but I got the official one first

The Menoth fulff is hilarious.

The Cleansers burning ground where infidel blood has been spilled.

Feora is just a child with matches.

Just getting into Warmahordes, but have plunked for Skorne for my first faction. Why? Angry elephants in platemail... don't think I need any more reason than that.
