I play Legion of Everblight, the models are fantastic and the game system is really fun too. Warmachine had problems with Infantrymachine and now they're trying to correct that with varying degrees of success, but Hordes doesn't seem to have that problem so far. The thing that kinda makes me sad though is that everyone I know who plays WM/Hordes without exception hates GW (except for my close friends who still like both) with a passion bordering on the dogmatic. Is it so wrong to like both?
EDIT: For those who were wondering what all this talk of "Infantrymachine" is about, it goes something like this: If I were to make an educated guess I would say that many of the people who were attracted to Warmachine were attracted by the idea of giant steam powered robots going at it. Warjacks are unquestionably some of the coolest models that Privateer has produced and they're incredibly strong. The only problem is, 9 times out of 10, they're just weaker than infantry. In its earlier years, PP made a lot of warcasters who were better off just keeping their Focus (or mana or whatever) on themselves and using it to fuel their spells or combat power, essentially becoming one-man armies. This was supported by infantry that were cheaper and generally better because of their better evasiveness and higher damage potential (if such a thing was possible), and the fact that warjacks just couldn't kill enough of the damn things! Later expansions didn't help, with the most notorious example being Bane Knights, a unit for Cryx that took a reasonably good unit from Prime, the Bane Thrall, and made it even better. Of course PP has started to release a lot more warjack-centric options and ways to make them viable in an army and like I said, they've had varying degrees of success.
The ideal would probably be to have an army that is a nice mix of warjacks, infantry and solos, at least that's what I imagine when I think of a Warmachine army. Of course when you're playing to win, aesthetics just aren't a factor.
